This is getting to be a serious pain, since underneath each of your posts there is no way for me to reply. Therefore to address one of your points. You claim the Bible must be true because of a,b,c,…Continue

Because he has no facts at his disposal and knows nothing of actual history only what the Bible and his pastor tell him, he has run away from the debate as I knew he would. This however, is my…Continue

No. I am claiming that the scientifc method is not a universal tool, and that there are things beyond its reach. So far there has been nothing beyond the realm of science. Everything has not yet been…Continue

The reason it cannot be tested is nothing to do with its validity, but its nature. You cannot test history. You can examine it.So you are now claiming that God existed in the past and no longer exists in the present?

Thanks. :D

 

And sorry, I'd have responded in turn earlier and with a more in depth...response, but I've been busy lately and am busy still. Last year of high school+College Apps+Finals=Business.

So.

 

I sincerely apologize for how much of a prick I was before. I'm not going to excuse my behaviour with a, "You started it," or, "You deserved it," and I'm not trying to be the bigger man in apologizing. Rather, I'll be completely honest and admit that I was extremely immature. I shouldn't have insulted you, and I hope you forgive me for being such a child.

 

That said, I stand by my beliefs, and if you, in the future, insult or degrade me in any fashion I can't promise you that I won't respond in turn. I won't ask for an apology from you, or admit that there's anything you need to apologize for, but I will ask you to act maturely from now on if we continue to discuss/debate/shout-at-each-other regarding religion, philosophy, politics, or anything of the like.

 

The reason I'm apologizing is primarily selfish--I wanted to save face after realizing how childish I was, and as a result I decided that owning up to it was the best method of accomplishing that--but please understand that there is some admittedly reluctant sincerity in my apology as well.

 

Again, my sincerest apologies.

 

~Fake Crowley
