Re: Black holes and baloney sandwiches...
I'll give you some feedback that you may find helpful.
Take this:
That little chapter from an article of mine has evoked thought in many a thinker. It contains many kernels that promote discussion on a number of things, all of which are an essential factor in the concepts debated in this forum.
I could click on your name and read through all your posts to see if I could identify "that little chapter" but I won't. Not many others will also. I'll just move along. I've no clue what you are talking about and you've not given any references to help me. What if I were in the orange juice business and I wanted you to buy my oranges juice so I told you, "buy it it's the best!". No one would know what it was or where to find it.
I can see no other explanation as I have yet to hear a response to any of my more poignant commentary by any of the members in question (of which you are now a notable player).
Again there are no references here other than the "you' is identifying jar as a notable player. The little of your comments I've read I never thought were poignant, just religious sentiment that is not that unusual for some of the posters here.
The idea that sermons are not allowed disqualifies anyone claiming to present a 'true' or 'factual' argument in a meaningful context.
Sermons and essays are simply not appropriate to a forum of this kind. What one could do is post them on a website, or a free blog site and then post links.
I'm wondering how long you've lurked here and if you've lurked at other forums? Internet forums have unique issues that require different solutions from classrooms, discussion groups, bars, churches etc. I don't think internet forums are the best place for in depth discussion and if that is what you are looking for I suspect something like classes, bible studies group, etc. might suit you a lot better.
One thing I find useful about these groups for myself is that in trying to express my ideas in writing I clarify them for myself if for no one else.
Each of us finds our own reasons for being here, and sometimes we move on. You have to decide for yourself if you are getting value out of this place.
