Can I have one post not be locked?
I would like to express some frustration I have had with this board if that is okay.
First, Sapient sent me a message saying my post was moved and renamed. The renaming of my post misrepresents my view. It was labeled something like "Rook's Credentials: The Final Smackdown"
Here is why I am a little upset. I asked what his credentials were, I did not judge him based on those credentials.
My Father did not graduate highschool and grew up in poverty. WITHOUT A DEGREE he rose up and started a very, very sucessful buisiness. I would trust his buisiness judgment over anyone with a degree. So, I FULLY BELIEVE THAT SOME PEOPLE can "make it" without a degree.
The response to my post has comments like "I would be surprised if you, theist, are college material" I say this is an ironic insult. that may be an insult to Rook...think about it. And yes, I do have a degree in...history...imagine that. Once again, before somebody else misrepresents me, I DO NOT BELIEVE A DEGREE TRUMPS SOMEBODY WITHOUT ONE in the fields of history, buisiness, or any other skill that can be attained through self-teaching.
WHY WAS I ATTACKED SO MUCH FOR ASKING THIS QUESTION? WHY WAS I LABELED "CLOSED MINDED"?
Why was my post sent to an area were people could make assumptions about me, insult me, and even ask me questions knowing I could not respond? Go back and read it. I asked a question and it was renamed to insinuate I was attacking Rook. That is a false representation of me.
I am really not trying to be rude. Thank you to those who have taken the time to help me. Please don't lock this. I would like a genuine conversation about the view that Jesus is a myth, I just wanted everyone to know I was ASKING A QUESTION and not MAKING A JUDGMENT.
