Brother Sam makes several excellent points on why people get into debates about religion, and has a good deal of insight about what I’ve been doing wrong in engaging Zdenny as of late. So, except for where his ridiculous arguments are directly and demonstrably hateful, I will disengage. No amount of evidence, logic, or rationality will ever penetrate his religious “armor” with which he has girded his mind, so it is not profitable, nor is it fun, to discuss these things with him. It actually makes me very sad that no matter how often I’ve tried, and no matter how well I’ve argued, fully zero has altered his arguments or debating tactics. I don’t intend to convert him, just to make him reflect on his beliefs and maybe reconsider some of his thoughts about non-Christians. You know, to show the “love” that he supposedly has, and stop trying to “save” (read: infect) others with his belief system.
Zdenny, if you think my disengaging with you means you win, then fine, I’m willing to let you think that. But remember: if you preach hateful ideas like that atheists are incapable of love, I will re-engage you on those points alone. If you desire discourse with me, as you so obviously do, I’ve given you the very roadmap on how to troll me — just continue to act like a hate-filled little man, and I’m right there in your face, I promise.
I hope you at least watch THIS video (despite your not watching many others that I’ve posted for your edification alone), and understand what you’re doing that makes you such a difficult person to have a decent conversation with.
