16. About what I expected from you.
My goal is not to antagonize anyone.

Bullshit. You relish it. You relish it so much you can't even spell your target's screen name correctly.

My goal is to have a forum where relgion and theology can be discussed without the bizarre fundamentalist atheist reactions that ironbark points out always occur on the R/T Forum in the above cited link.

That's ironbark's personal take on an event. Do you happen to have an actual link to the exchange so his version of it can be verified?

Maybe if the fundie atheists accepted how disruptive their behavior was to rational, thoughtful discussion, we could have a functional R/T Forum.

And maybe if the folks who rabidly try to censor negative comments about religion could refrain from throwing the oxymoron "fundie atheist" around as a way of doing it, they might just help make their case. But no, they'd rather fan the flames of ill will and keep the hostility going. Good job!

Finally, perhaps you could provide just a thread of a valid comparison between criticizing religion on a public Internet board, and slaughtering believers in Communist Russia. I mean, really. :eyes:
