@Archaeon have you had your heater checked recently for carbon monoxide emissions?
[many empty lines snipped (krasnaya)]
Perhaps the level of intellectual peak someone with an invisible friend is able to reach. This thread has gone from ontological to rather clinical. Archaeon, you can swear as much as you like to, i don't care. In fact, i *do* care - about as much as i care about someone elses dog barking when i pass by. You are just one more - in ancient greek there is a term for that, meaning "layman" - who combines high-riding attitude with low-achieving brains and calls that belief.
As an aside: shouldn't that read "fuck you, fool" instead of "fuck you. fool"? Interpunction is not a matter of happenstance but follows rules, you know? Not knowing the rules is not insulting for me but rather yourself and your "calumniare audacter" backfires that way.
oh no! lol it's not funny
It meant oh fuck! don't you be no fool NOW!

i gotta say
liar (and im just skip the dictionary version you were so generous and forthright about) a person who calls my 'word salad' uninteligible could only be illiterate or didn't read it or able to read kinda but so stupid not able to process good understanding enough to ....every sign of creation evident by what i write.....opposite of nonsense.... you don't understand something and that makes it stupid? how does that work?
that's not right.
. a liar did not read my words and decried them publicly to invalidate what i suppose just in case some child came along and then accidentally read my let's call it just a poem and then devoted his life to following m y word to the letter...in that rare event maybe you could be even some kind of hero liar but i am persuaded that poems are safe and promote mind expansion through the use of concepts you are not thinking of....so then growth i guess.. is that right? yes that is right
why i gotta be worthless? i only reflect the true idol here is a long conversation over chicken or the madman or uh egg ..... they rant so passionately with such great ignorance....it's vanity for sure. so what i did is mark it. See that? Wow! aren't you moving!

There is no sky fairy. Bastards in all religions have sexually assaulted children in the name of their “ god.” A curse on all religions and the gullible who follow them.
@Kaynight1 Their perversion is no longer tolerated in the UK, at least and I hope, most other developed countries. If you are a victim of historical abuse, I urge you to speak to the police, now the spotlight is on them and they are actually doing their job.

@angrymonkey i dont believe kaynight was talking about personal experience here more of a "meta" all religion is fucked up and ends up praying on the weak in the name of "righteousness"
i do however support any victims of religious perversions speaking up against it
