i'll start by saying i'd like this all to end soon. really. i think it's starting wear me out...
That speaks highly of you.
can't tell if that's sarcastic or not, and i don't know which way would be better to assume. i wouldn't mind some clarification though.
It is. You robbed me of my chance to make amends.
Yes it is. Another friend once told me to f**k off. That was much heavier. Yet I will probably have him in my house this summer. He's coming all the way from Newcastle just to meet me and Miou.
all i can say is that i don't agree. things can be perceived very differently by different people, and circumstances often affect such perceptions quite highly.
Neither did I. Heck I didn't even agree with all of it, it was just something I copy/pasted cos it made me laugh. And it wasn't even anti-Christian. It was poking fun at the fundamentalists.
also can't agree with that. among the things it makes fun of is the Trinity, as well as the birth and the death of Christ. both things that any Christian believes in, fundamentalist or not. despite it claiming at the end that most atheists and agnostics know more about Christianity than most Christians, i'd like to think i know my own religion rather well.
You know I'm deeply religious my self, don't you?
honestly, i'm not sure i can say i did. i don't know much about your beliefs, and that's my own fault. i'll make a note of that though.
It wasn't about you, I didn't insult you as well did I? I mean you a Tull fan you don't strike me as a fundamentalist Christian.
no, i am by no means a fundamentalist. i wouldn't even put myself as entirely certain in my specific beliefs. but i was born and raised Catholic (insert Every Sperm is Sacred quotes here), and i still at least somewhat believe that. i know about the evils religion has brought on man; it's sometimes struck me as the worst thing ever to happen to us. however, there are some beliefs i'm still certain of, and some of those were joked at/poked fun at/attacked in that list. so yes, it irritated me.
I have my reasons to be proud, Dennis.
I have been praised repeatedly by better men than me, military commanders and far more educated people.
I have done things that make me proud, like stepping in front of a knife to protect someone I cared for, or stepping into smoke with my eyes closed and holding my breath to turn off a generator about to explode while ordering my men to back the f**k up.
that is a jaw-dropping list, to say the absolute least... i'm not even sure i have proper words to put after it.
nope, i don't. suffice to say, i am extremely impressed.
And I think I know your reasons but I will not post them.
I may be wrong but it doesn't matter anyway.
i'd still like to know just why you think i deleted that topic, if you really don't mind. private or public, your choice. and i promise it will stay private if you so choose. and if you're wrong, i'll fill you in on the true reason.
