But there’s 23,997 other members.

I’m sure he’s better than at least some of the hit-and-run-I-want-a-free-invite-to-myspleen-ers (who likely constitute half of all forum members)?

Really? Damn, that is lame. I see they closed invite requests on the Myspleen Forum while I was gone. Maybe I can talk them back into opening that back up (I am still an admin but it would be a dick move to jump back in like I never left). I would hope that the relationship between Myspleen and OT.com hasn’t gone sour while a was gone. Any one know the score? PM me if there are any problems.

Back to the subject. I don’t care where I am ranked so long as it is round number.

     "...from my perspective" sums up the misunderstanding.

    The sad truth is, with regard to these matters, we pitiful little creatures DON'T HAVE ANYTHING THAT COULD BE CALLED A PERSPECTIVE!!! We don't even count as mosquitos in camparison to a surgeon.

     Even so, the unattuned can gain the knowledge they require. They just have to work harder for it (see The Apostle Thomas.)

     The Universe is far from finished. Scripture tells us that it is groaning. The six stages were the initial creation.

     "With great power comes great responsibility." Humans expect their high chiefs to judge and set the wrongs right. God is the only one who can fulfill that need. "Give every man as he deserves and who would scape whipping?" What if the creator doesn't want to give all of his creations what they deserve? How could he escape the imperative to condemn according to human logic (Man was not made for the Sabbath but the Sabbath for man.) Jesus is that way out.

       Do you know what would happen to those male children or women? Would they die in the desert or be taken by men who would give them worse treatment? What would happen to the nation that doesn't show that they mean business according to the standard of the time? Doesn't perceived weakness invariably encourage aggressors and lead to even more war and suffering? Do you know what happens to a society that plays too much with it's penises in unnatural ways? What happens if men stop caring enough about the next generation? Tear down and destroy the people who do care? History indicates it might be very bad. It might be the thing that tips the balance and drags us to totalitarianism.

       All Universes are possible? What if this universe is Logically necessary to God's knowledge? The Forger problem might have some application. If a forgery is so convincing that there is no way to distinguish it from the original, is there any meaningful distinction? What if our universe IS a part of the perfect knowledge of God? It IS God knowing. People complain that God doesn't need to put us through this because he already knows the outcome. But if the knowledge is so complete and perfect that it is indistinguishable from the history of our universe, his knowledge could BE the history of our U. There would be no need to "Do it again in reality". It may be our reality. We are knowledge in the mind of God. 

      God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are the same entity viewed from different human perspectives at different points in time. God doesn't change. Humanity changes. The way you relate to a small child in the past will be quite different from the way you relate to a spouse today or that same child in the future. We can judge human conduct to some degree, but we don't have the most minute part of the information necessary to judge our creator.

      A Surgeon does radical, invasive, harmful, violative things to his patient. Is it therefore "evil"?

      These human jackals who come in the name of "compassion" are most often horrifying tyrants. Depravity is a cruel sort of tyranny. Why should you prefer their tyranny? 

What do I get out of worshiping such an entity and what does it in turn get out of my genuflections?

 

I have never thought about this before. What does God get from all the beliefs and prayers?? Is he playing a real life version of Black & White? (a video game where you play God and gain villages and new powers)

Why is the biggest reason for going to hell because you don't believe in God (ignorance). If I was God I would just say, "Look guys this is how it works: If your good you to Heaven. If your bad, you go to hell"

I don't see Ghandi going to Hell in my world, but according to the Bible he's going to burn in Hell.

The divorce would make me feel much older.

Probably true. I talk loose but I have never cheated on anyone before...it's not even on my bucket list.

Best advice for the young people on this forum: Cheating is beating (well not really). I sure would rather be punched in the face than stabbed in the heart.

Oh and don't drink and drive, weed is way safer behind the wheel. :P

Good to see you, walkingdork. :)

How are you?

Things have been going great. My new job, new girlfriend, busy, busy. I'm finally in a routine and have time to sit down and have computer freetime (after working on a computer all day).

Tonight I finally got a chance to sit down, have a bowl, and visit OT. :)

Cheerios? Lucky Charms? Reese's Puffs?

;)

Once upon a time on MySpleen (Now with OPEN REGISTRATION)
Time

Hey guys,

Sorry I have been gone so long. I've been working hard at my new job and has eaten into my freetime (and my smoke time). I've also just been more social in my personal life.

I feel pretty crappy that I let my inbox get full and haven't replied to the countless invite requests. I'm going to turn on open registrations for 2 weeks while I try to catch up on mail.

Please don't abuse this. Please no hit'n'runs

because you believe people should be able to speak their mind even if their opinion is ridiculous or offensive?

I think their ought to be a limit to what people can say on a forum, or do you think people ought to be able to say racist things on this forum? 

If that's someone's opinion and it's on topic, then yeah.

I think it is clear that not everyone agrees that people should be allowed to say racist stuff on a forum.  But, in the end, it is up to the mods and admins to decide.

yep

And if a troll is doing all that with a sock account, what is wrong with wanting to find his real account and holding him responsible for the things he did under the sock account?    Why shouldn't I care about the forum community, when I've been a part of it for almost 10 years(it will be 10 years in May 2013)?

Myspleen has been around since 2013 (current records only go back as far as 2004) and we dealt with trolls, racists, and extremely offensive/hateful people. Our community is doing just fine.

I get complaints from time to time with demands to ban people and I tell to them to suck it up or ignore them.

I have to say it, you attitude on subject sucks.

I believe in free speech. So unless someone is being physically threatened people can speak their minds on Myspleen. It has been that way there well before I was an admin.

not every forum has to follow the rules of Myspleen.  Also just because Myspleen does something,  that doesn't mean it was the right thing to do.   In any case, neither you or I are an admin on this forum.  Jay is the one and only admin here. 

Obviously I was just saying forums don't have to ban people in order to keep a good community.

Ignoring people is also such a strange idea to me. If you see someone's post and you aren't interested in reading the contents, skip it.

I have no authority in the forum.  It is Jay's forum and only he can decide who is and who is not to be banned.  Sometimes, people that I think should be banned, won't be.   Using the ignore the button is sometimes the only other option.    Maybe if the person who is annoying you, knows that you are not reading his posts,  he'll stop posting the things that annoy you.

Fair enough. I guess I just have thick skin.

You say people have called for you to be banned?

when did I say that?   I suppose it has happened.  

bolded.

huh?  the bolded just says that sometimes people that I think should be banned, won't be banned.    It doesn't say that people have called for me to be banned. 

gotcha

walkingdork said:

Some one can't handle you and so you should be removed??

Maybe I shouldn't be acting in such a way that someone needs to handle me. 

Some people don't appreciate my humor or my being blunt from time to time. Ender used to be offended by my posts. Right now Frink is probably mad at my continuing this conversation on his thread. Should I be banned?

Only Jay and his mods decide who is and who is not to be banned here.  Do I think you should be banned?  No,  but after that crack about the cancer thing and my belief in God, I am considering putting you on ignore.   And I wouldn't call you blunt, I'd you insensitive and rude.

I think you misread or misunderstood me. I wasn't shitting on your religion.

walkingdork said: who has cancer and who doesn't.

did you really need to bring the cancer thing up?  I don't think it is paranoid to wonder whether or not a person, that you tried to help by creating a thread to raise money, actually has the cancer they claimed to have(especially when that person's best friend comes on the forum and says that he is lying).   

You believe in God right? So donate (or don't) and let God sort it out.

now you've gotten me angry.  What does my belief in God has nothing to do with this.   This is about someone lying to get money, and using me to do it.     

Why are you angry? I'm just saying if there is a God I'm pretty sure lying about cancer for money is a straight trip to hell. So losing a little cash would be bad, but a liar of that magnitude would not go unpunished, right?

I would have taken someone in that situation at their word and if they were lying I would realize that that person is a horrible person and is really worse off than me losing a little bit of cash. Know what I mean?
