Could go infinite ways, perhaps we will be put in cages after birth that's if we aren't?

Yeah whatever. It just means everyone skips over his posts. I know I (usually) do.

It is hard to read between the lines when one doesn't even understand what you write on the lines. Your refusal to use basic English grammar and your massive use of emoticons doesn't make this easier, especially for non-native English speakers. If you want to have serious discussions with other people it is a sign of respect to formulate your sentences in a way that the people you discuss with are able to understand them. You maybe should think about that.

I agree. In general, that sounds like Communications Theory, that I recall from day 1 of CMNS 101. In essence, the communications process rests on the intentions of the parties to impart and receive information, the mutual agreement on the code to be used, and an acknowledgement of the fundamental principles of logical discourse and ethical behavior.

It is not my responsibility to "read between the lines." It is your responsibility to communicate clearly.

Clue: if no-one can understand you, then you can't tell anyone anything.

If I'm asking for help or somewhere that it matters then I try to be to the point. Like all, I am learning but over using the emoticons that's just plane fun (cuts off at 6 )

Maybe there is posting deity aswell but just like God we discuss here, he chooses to be invisible? Ok jokes are fun bet seriously this discussion has gone too inactive. Kinda miss those believing trolls - at least they driven this mega thread forward with pretty nice argumentation even if weak but still.

They can't handle the truth so simply believe or perhaps were programed too well?

"The company of those seeking the truth is infinitely preferable to that of those who think they've found it."
—Terry Pratchet.

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science."
–Charles Darwin

"The more you know, the more you realize you know nothing."
–Socrates

It's no-ones job to read between the lines but...
and...
"Hell is empty and all the devils are here."
—William Shakespeare
plus...
To paraphrase The United States of Leland (movie) why waste time crying to "god" "the devil makes more sense" ... "good to have somebody to blame for all the bad stuff they did" — "only human" made bad by (not from the biped movie in ways) "enlightenment"

In case someone from active still reads this here is another material that can be treated as question to believers.

But really? How would you respond to this if it really will turn out that God of any "holy book" allows such stuff?
