Black holes and baloney sandwiches...
Well jar, it's hard to compete with that. It is your site and you certainly have the right to decide what is legitimate topically.
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 must ask, what is the purpose of this forum? Because it appears to many that I have presented staggering challenges to many of the assumptions of a couple of members (you know them better than I).
I am sorry if by condensing the discussion to it's elemental foundation in logic and trimming the branches of abstraction, that so many seem to be left speechless!
What end do you seek in these discussions? Are you promoting 'a view of your own' under the guise of wanting open conversation?
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).
I don't think any of the serious thinkers who visit your forum are going to be impressed by the actions they see. But then again, what fool takes abstractions seriously anyway?
I would very much like to remain a member of this forum and sense my days are numbered if we do not come to some sort of understanding. If you have any suggestions, I would be more than happy to induldge them.
The idea that sermons are not allowed disqualifies anyone claiming to present a 'true' or 'factual' argument in a meaningful context. That pretty much excludes us all. If my analysis is incorrect, please do enlighten me. If not, then perhaps it would serve you better to think deeply on the issues I've raised rather than react so instinctively to protect yourself from a challenge.
I've been in your shoes gentlemen. It is difficult terrain. Bold and treacherous! Please travel with care and mindfulness of the consequences of denial.
I do wish you all well, and apologize for the fire in my words. The topic your playing with is fire, so none of us should be suprised.
I see now that you have censored a couple of my comments. It is an absolute shame in light of intellectual honesty. I guess honesty is pointless to those who presuppose there is no truth to begin with. Though they naturally believe that it's true...
Perhaps now you understand why 'they' crucified Jesus. Because He spoke with the authority that no mere man can claim. 'We' as mankind still crucify Him to this very moment...
John 8: 43-45
...Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

Re: Black holes and baloney sandwiches...
Thanks for that Ringo. I try to speak clearly, and sometimes that necessitates length. I will try.
As for the attitude... It is only perceived. I am a simple truck driver with three kids that my wife thinks I am ignoring because of the time spent with this stuff. I fear her because I respect her.
2 Corinthians 10:1-6
1 By the meekness and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you--I, Paul, who am "timid" when face to face with you, but "bold" when away! 2 I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world. 3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Re: Each of us finds our own reasons for being here...
Some are seeking, some are speaking, and some are weeping. I know why I'm here. But thank you for your genuine concern, it was moving...
Forever learning but never understanding.
