up against a wall of woo.

I pitched a little woo, in my youth. I'm sure I'll regret asking, but what the hell is a wall of woo?

I assume he means "doo-doo".
We usually call it a load of shit, but maybe he thinks the friendly version is "a wall of woo"...
Or something. I blamed my ESL and just went with my own interpretation :P

Of course Gunnair your entire statement fails on an epic level because even the most zealot of people all agree and understand there is no "My truth and your truth". There is simply truth. Something is true or it's not.

You can call that arrogant but it doesn't erase the facts.

You do not get to place your faith on the same level as actual reason.

edit: I'm going to send a message to the mods but I'm sure I'm not the only one at this point questioning if the op should be removed from these forums since he never participates in other threads and just spams his vapid nonsense.


You've got it backwards. Faith is, by definition, certainty. Reason, on the other hand, is always bound by uncertainty. You can't calim any certain truth using reason.


I'm not comparing faith to reason here nearly as much as saying that "personal truth" is about as useful as tits on a bull.

You are of course correct that reason is always uncertain about even the most solid of facts. It's actually a good thing IMO.

"Woo" is another word for Superstitious belief/practices. I only heard/learned of it recently myself.

Uhmmm, no. You post some opinion that insults a lot of people ('s intelligence), run away and don't respond until 4 or 5 days later. Then a hypocritical statement is your reply.

You might want to engage in your own threads if you want to be taken a little bit seriously.


I do get busy on occasion but am quite diligent in responding when there is need or opportunity to those who actually have something to say to the issues.

Note how I basically ignore those like you who have nothing of intelligence to share.

Hmm.

“Faith must trample under foot all reason, sense, and understanding.”

“Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.”
Martin Luther


Faith

1 a: allegiance to duty or a person : loyalty

b (1): fidelity to one's promises (2): sincerity of intentions

2 a (1): belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2): belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion

b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof (2): complete trust

3 : something that is believed especially with strong conviction; especially


Faith without facts is for fools.

I dunno man. There are times here when you bring retarded to a dumb fight.

I get you have an agenda, it's just you know your delivery sucks when atheists and the faithful think you're being an idiot.

I think this is the first time I responded to one of your blatantly biased threads. Or maybe the second. I don't know, since I don't care. But when you start playing victim, I get annoyed. When I get annoyed, I stop minding my own business.

Also, your little try to belittle me and everyone else who thinks your one trick pony posts are annoying, is duly noted.

I do not label myself a skeptic even as I am skeptical of many things.

I label myself an esoteric ecumenist and Gnostic Christian.

The point I am making is that Christians do not follow their laws and are not foolish to ever want to live under God's laws. IOW, they are not living their so called faith.

OK FP, I got this in an earlier post. Your right. My Dad just published an ebook on this very subject. I'm not sure your reaching the right audience here and I give you kudos for trying. :)

He posted exactly the same screed on another forum. He doesn't really seem interested in discussion, and you're right, if he did, this isn't really the right place for it.

Thanks.

There is the odd good mind in here but no as many as elsewhere by %.

This might be a young crowd. Some places are worse though, some better.
Before getting on the web I thought that Canada had surpassed the U S in thinking but I have revised my thinking a bit lately.
