Sorry guys, but it is becoming too much of a skeptics gathering here. Time to end the discussion.
I am giving you the benefit of the last word not because I have nothing more to respond but simply so you don't start kvetching.
Well, I'm kvetching anyway, especially since I put some real time into researching a few comments that he later deleted.
This sort of thing is commonplace among the more religious blogs. Have you ever seen an atheistic or skeptical blogger halt discussion because too many religious people were responding?
I think it's instructive that religious ideas flourish primarily in forums where dissent is limited, while in more open forums, the trend is towards skepticism.
In response to one of my other posts, a religious commenter is spreading lies and actually advocating the execution of homosexuals, and I haven't even deleted his comments. Instead of censoring him, I'm calmly pointing out exactly why he is wrong.
Here's a hint: if your belief system can't stand up to criticism, it's probably not worth holding.
