I suspect he really DOES have an anti-religious obsession. He's likely just being himself. I hope he is able to free himself from the chains that bind him.

Troll? Nutjob? It's often hard to tell the difference.

What if he's an obsessive troll ?

He is being himself, evidently. That's because what he is, is a troll ....

He may like his chains ...

First Jafar, then Gnostic. I know you are a Christian, but you seem to lately be championing anyone here who isn't. Is someone who is disliked and non-Christian, more likable to you than a fellow believer?

I don't think so. And you know from my responses how well I agree with him/her/it. I say let him say what he wants and prove his own ignorance. Seems to me all he does is get his butt handed to him.

Trolls usually thrive on drive-by flame-baiting. If you Google one of Gnostic's OP posts, it's not unusual to see it pop up elsewhere.

One means I use to differentiate between a flame-baiting troll and a simple member with a different opinion is their participation in other threads. Most members here participate in a variety of threads, sometimes agreeing, sometimes disagreeing. People like Gnostic Bishop rarely participate outside their own threads: http://www.debatepolicy.com/member.php?3259-Gnostic-Christian-Bishop

How is the so-called "troll" any different than the Christian Apologetics class in Sunday School? It think it's a good idea for the Sunday School teacher to knock on the door and pretend he's a Jehovah's Witness or Mormon door knocker. If your students are not prepared, one day they could be sucked in.

If I was anti-religious, I would not be a Gnostic Christian.

It is the satanic morality you poor folk have embraced that I fight.

Care to actually debate those?

Substitutionary atonement is particularly satanic.

Care to argue for it?

I like people because you can count on them to (figuratively) pull you out of the snow when you're stuck. I'm disappointed you didn't recognize MY intolerance. I work hard at it. Regardless whether you like them or not; one either accepts Jesus as Savior or they burn in an eternal hell. There will be lots of likable people in hell and lots of difficult people in heaven.

Exactly right and the fact that most here only come into it to post garbage and throw stones shows how your friends cannot apologise properly for your religion.

Most mainstream religions are currently trying to get more apologists out here but are ailing to find anything much except for the type of negative apologetics that is going on here.

our friends do not seem to realize that they play right into my hands, in terms of what the lurkers will see, that are not of your ilk.

I you and they cannot kill my views then all the lurkers will know it your friends run from actual debate.

Strange that a God who creates all thing perfectly, would need to create such an evil an immoral construct like hell.

It is also strange that Jesus came to cure the ill while you see him killing all those ill souls in hell instead of curing them.

When did Jesus change his way of thinking?

I get the tribalism that such small community churches appeal to, but to allow one's mind to self-abused to the point f believing lies is to not respect ones own mind and body.

They, like many here seem to think that to question Christianity is to attack it.

That is why you guys go personal instead of to the issues and end sounding like backwoods rednecks.

You should not let questioners like me manipulate you so easily.

It's not really about religion.

1. This topic was two pages long of attacks against an atheist with no arguments at all. That's bullying.
2. I read lots of racial comments on many different threads and I have some trouble harmonizing racism with intelligence.
3. The whole forum is decorated with soldiers, eagles and american flags. Not to mention the topics and even the jokes are heavily related to war. I'm not a pacifist, but this kind of patriotism gives me the impression that most people here are marines or crazy dudes with many weapons below their beds.

I have been trying to understand you are from a very different culture. I undestand that war is part of nationalism and american culture. I know you come from a racist heritage. I get it, but the cultural difference between most people here and I seems too big for me.

Once again, I understand it's normal, but I came here under the idea that I was going to be intellectually estimulated only to find... mmm... traditional thinking.

I reacted agressively because I hate bullying even more than racism.

Eitherway, for whatever it's worth, I apologize for being so critical. I might be wrong and I know a few posts are not what people really are.

You don't know the history of this particular poster.

There were many attempts made by people on this board to engage Gnostic in debate, but were met with non-answers and dodging every time - and that's because he's simply finding his topics and statements somewhere else and copy/pasting them here. When the conversation veers from the conversation he's stealing from, he's unable to answer and you can see the very different tone & content in his replies - there's clearly two different people authoring the original and the follow up texts. He's just a troll, and probably the worst offender I've ever seen.

But you certainly did get awfully judgey very quickly. I suggest you utilize the search function on the board or ask questions to learn the history of individual posters before broadly condemning everyone here. Most likely you'll receive lots of examples as to why certain members have a very poor reputation around here - all you need to do is ask or search for yourself.

No, people are taking insult at your purposeful attempt to insult Christianity, and your insult to the peopleasure of this forum with the regurgitated crap you constantly copy/paste. You're not a debated, because that would require you have an actual opinion of your own.

You've won nothing in any forum you've posted in, you clearly have learned nothing, and you teach nothing. All you have is condescension, and are shocked that people see you as a worthless troll. Perhaps if you had at least some version of respect for ANYONE, including the people whose work you constantly just shit onto the site and hide behind, there might be a better debate, but you just don't have the stones for it. You can't and want answer simple direct question, saying that people are "deflecting" as a way of deflecting from the fact you have no answer.

Agreed he's a troll. OTOH, he's also harmless and nutty. He'll do is drive-by trolling then meander over to other forums and do the same to them.
