Anything goes in here, rants, raves and pictures (as long as it's not explicitly pornographic or illegal by US Laws). This is our own toned down version of /b/. Warning this forum may be NSFW!

Not gonna name name because I don't want to create the appearance I'm endorsing/advertising.
There are 2 groups on Facebook which in the past have gone at each others throats.
Difference being the theistic one has banned almost all of the members of the atheistic one based on any posts anything resembling dissenting remarks against Christianity.
The atheistic one continues to NOT ban anyone. Debates are welcome from any and all.

One of the members of said theistic group came over to the atheistic group and engaged members in a debate over a particular post.
What is funnier is later his own theistic group claimed the atheistic members were stalking them ...

I asked him why he was on the non-believer's group engaging them in debate to begin with since most of them were banned. Here is my post to this guy.

We're pigs and we like to wrestle in mud.
We came in your pen and you didn't like our behavior.
So you sent us away back in our own pen.
But it bothers you to see that we are perfectly content in our pen. In fact we are having a lot of fun.
It bothers you a lot we are not in your pen by the rules of your pen.
So you come here and commence in wrestling in the mud right along with us, trying to convince us your pen really is better.
It doesn't matter to you what happens to us, but it BOTHERS you we are not in the pen you are in and we are having fun.
You're a pig just like us.
But an intolerant one.

To which he responds, COMPLETELY downplaying it all "You guys have your rules. We have ours. No worries."

This sounds strangely familiar... AIG, DI, RR...
Imho, this fact alone tells you a whole lot about the difference between the theistic and the atheistic approach to knowledge: the theists have theirs already and the atheists want to increase theirs. Just a general tendency, of course, but a striking one.
You were born. And so you're free. So happy birthday.
