My Conversation with TWD39
My first message:
TWD39, you don't seem like the kind of person who normally insults others. If this is true, why do you make an exception for atheists? And why do you so often apply these insults to atheists in general, as if we're all somehow identical?
No, I'm actually a really nice guy. I go off on atheists because I have a low tolerance for rude and disrespectful people. I can't stand people that take pleasure in mocking and belittling others. I was treated as such from the very beginning. Sure, I could respond in a less snarky fashion, but it wouldn't make a difference. I want to reflect back to the atheist the exact tactics and behavior they use on me. The arrogance and refusal to examine or accept evidence for example.
So, you mimic behaviors you detest to show others how irritating such behaviors are? An interesting approach, I must say. However, it will only work if you (eventually) stop mimicking those behaviors, as well as explain why you started.
Thank you for answering my first question, I think I understand now. What I really don't understand, however, is why you continue to make statements assuming all atheists behave in an identical manner. I can assure you that they don't, and I can provide examples if you'd like.
My second message:
You have not yet answered my second private message (sent on October 7), and you failed to respond to many of my public posts addressed specifically to you. You respond regularly to jcgadfly, and he is less polite to you than I; he also asks longer questions.
Would you care to give me the real reason you don't answer my posts/messages anymore?
TWD39 did not respond to my reply or to my second message.
To all: What are your thoughts on this conversation? Why do you think TWD39 stopped responding?
