    Made some good connections with the guys here, just don't like seeing the Jesus Never Existed threads. He exists to me and hope that you find what you are searching for. Happy Stacking!

    I'm tired of seeing/reading that thread title, everytime I refresh the "New Post" button. I wish that thread would fade away.

    Thousands of those types of threads exist all over the internet. Unfortunately a lot of christians simply aren't equipped to give good explanations. This is fine, people can believe what they want. I am a christian, and well equipped to answer threads such as those. However, one has to determine if it is really worth one's time to get into the nitty gritty of historical detail, philosophy, logic, etc., in order to convince trolls who may not give a shit one way or another. Don't leave the community because of threads like that. They are a dime a dozen.

    I hear ya barkin. Not everyone posts on threads such as that for a reason.
    Others post on threads such as that for a reason.
    People spend their time as they have chosen to do.
    Over the years here, the religion threads have been some of the most volatile.
    Gets people going it does.
    Quantum and the guys above say some good stuff.
    Please dont go changin, and please dont let a little water get in your gas tank.
    Lotta other threads here, like Agnuts stuff, or Pitws or Zeds or Scorpios or Searchers. Lots of them.

    I have left a forum of good people once and it was because of the owner. I've regretted it near everyday cause they were all good people and I miss them. To leave over something you have contol over is just wrong in my books.
    Hystyckndle[try typing that in the dark when your pecker has been cut off] forgot one dang important person in his thread.:realmad: Think old tinytypes.
    Stick around and talk about lifes good experiences and don't get sucked in by the doom and gloomers.

    I occasionally weaken and look at that thread in case somebody had posted something of interest, but it's always "same old, same old".

    I wouldn't let that (or any other) thread bother me if I were you. If certain subject matter bothered me I simply wouldn't read the thread. If I didn't care for some of the things a particular member posts............I simply wouldn't read any of his / her posts.

    Why not listen to Haystack & pitw and stick around.

    Now as to the thread you're talking about: I've read every post and never replied. Simply don't have anything to say. Really isn't my bailiwick. When ya get down to the nitty gritty.........some of the replies are actually comical.

    Once again........I wouldn't let it get to me. Hope you change your mind.

    Have a great day.

    You can't get there from here.
    Yes, I agree with the others, if you don't look, what's the harm? The internet is full of stuff I don't like or think is wrong, it doesn't stop me from using the parts I find useful and like.
    I would rather you stayed and contributed some useful or interesting information. If not, best to you and I hope you find your way back.
    Keep in mind views that differ from yours are not necessarily the views of all the members or the forum itself.

    I am with you, however I see it differently. I chose to not read it, and find satisfaction knowing those that go out of their way to belittle and try to convince others God " does not exist" have a very, very special fate awaiting them. God's word on this matter promises a very specific " future" for them. This specific offence has been mentioned many times, by many different books. A powerful warning, judgement time arrives at every man's doorstep.

    Mark 9:42

    "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea."

    They have been warned. As unlikely as it may be, may God have mercy on them......

    Mathew 18:6
    "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

    Luke 17:2
    It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.

    1 Corinthians 8:12
    When you sin against them in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.

    I very seriously believe you can find any group of people that all think alike,
    isn't that why we have the First Amend. ??

    I was told, early in life, "don't change jobs due to a personality conflict, you will only move on to
    deal with new a$$holes, change jobs only for personal enhancement" - he was correct.

    P.S. You do know that we have an "ignore button" ?

    Hey guys! Ok, so I needed to take a step back to gain some perspective. Soon as I wrote this post I thought to myself that I am cutting myself off from a very good resources here. We have an excellent online community here that is a valuable resource for a variety of topics that are of interest to me.

    Hystcndle!!! How are you? Still keeping a busy schedule? Hope the family is doing well. My family is happy and healthy and my daughter is growing up way too fast!

    Pitw, I know how you feel. I wasn't offended with anyone in particular just annoyed by that thread. I too regretted leaving this community and my buddies, thankfully I can always come back!

    Searcher, I always enjoy your posts and pictures!
    Michael59! Buddy! You are still here?! I thought the lynch mob got you a while back. Good to see that you survived.
    917601, Amen!
    TAEZZAR, couldn't agree with you more!

    And maybe some pics of your soap making process , seems to me that a blog type thread would
    be kinda cool.

    Hey, dont let those kinda threads change ya.
    Peeps just voicing their opinion.
    After all, its a free world and people get to think how they want. No biggee.
    The good part, YOU get to CHOOSE what ya want , for the most part, in this life.
    Its ALL good bro. Being exposed to dif stuff aint a bad thing.
