He asked you a valid question, and you're deflecting it, as you have everyone elses attempts to engage you. You're free to refuse that engagement, but don't do so while also proclaiming yourself the only one willing to have the discussion you've refused. It's incredibly childish.
I was in the process of responding to this when the thread was locked.
Valid question? - No, he did not ask a valid question he was being a wise ass and therefore deserves to be ignored.
Deflecting? - This is why I am walking away, for some reason you can't see that you all have been deflecting my comment (It can't be proven that God does not exist, anymore than it can be proven that God does exist) basically because you can't answer it and that makes you all feel rather unhappy with yourselves. So you attack, you vilify, you condescend and use as much pseudo intellectual bullshit as you can all think of to try and make someone who made a simple comment feel intimidated. Well you failed and made yourselves look like absolute prats.
Childish? - Again we have very ideas of what that means. In short I could see that this discussion was going nowhere fast, the comments and attitude were becoming increasingly hostile and hypocritical, all of you were applying a set of rules against me that you yourselves were not willing to follow. Rather than put up with that, I walked away and will still walk away. If you consider this childish then so be it.
I like to converse with people about all manner of topics and I am ok if people disagree with me but I am not ok with being spoken down to or being disrespected, I feel that you lot are not ok with people who have different opinions and I am definite in my belief that you guys are also not ok with people posing questions that you cannot come up with answers to.
The odd thing is
a/ I didn't care if no one answered.
b/ I would have been totally ok if people had of just put forward their opinions on the matter.
Anyway, I think the amount of religious/atheist threads that get closed down here more than supports what I have just said.
Have fun getting threads locked and Goodbye, this board is not for me.
