Buz was a Jedi-Knight. A Yoda. He did not get ruffled by arguments or harsh opinions, in this respect you must now realise that your Father can never be turned to the dark side. (I am of course, speaking tongue-in-cheek, for those who never did understand that 80% of mike is humour. Buz wouldn't mind, after all, he was irrefutable!! All we bible-bashers are, ultimately!!)
Life is complicated, Ndugu. Buz was not a giant of intellectualism, but that does not matter at all, for the reality of the Creation is not dependent upon it's creatures' arguments. All that matters with the Lord, is faithfulness. As the scripture has said, His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.
I was going to say more and perhaps in the past I would have but I have already spoken to Buz's wife and we know what matters so I don't need to speak it here.
(I only came here for this comment, as requested by an EvC Admin)-- That particular admin who contacted me, it always struck me that that person treated Buzsaw with kindness, and neutrality/impartiality.

Re: Mike the wiz?
Hi Tony, only just noticed your message. Good to hear you again and I think your post was very good. Some good correct hit-terms concerning Buzsaw would be, "kindness", "noble" and "sincere".
I myself don't debate any more for several reasons.
- My own inability to switch off compuslive thoughts, that are fed by debating people (mainly). (not nice. ) --OCD--

Buz Light beer
Just reading some of the other members comments. I was thinking along similar lines to you - for example, does "mike the wiz" exist?
I would say, MOSTLY - no, except here at EvC. Mostly, although I say things I mean, etc.... is it really an honest portrayal of who I am? I would say it is an extremely condensed parody of who I am with no inhibitions. It is perhaps the mad man in me, if left to roam free, unchecked.
For example, in real life, would I argue with an atheist? No, because if an atheist was in the process of killing me I would in all likelyhood offer him a cup of tea.
You see my point with the silly example. Although people like me and Buz are pretty much hated here, a lot of that bad feeling is based on something that is perhaps only an effigy of us. Ultimately you hate what we stand for, but what we truly stand for is not what you really would hate.
Why would we throw ourselves into a lion's den? We know they will try and rip us apart. Ultimately I think people are worth it, even if it costs, "self".
People like Buz don't give up because ultimately he believed that there was a message of hope that was worth trying to put across, even to his own torment.
I think Buz would thank Percy for his time at EvC. I myself thank Percy. I joined EvC as a 22 year old who had never thought in his life, I actually didn't know I could think - I had been dependent on school teachers and "bosses" telling me what to do. So places like this were a kind of blank canvas to me. A canvas my ass was greeted with face to face pretty often, and rightly so. (I know, it's a neat little equivocation with the term, "canvas" but I wouldn't know what "equivocation" was if I had not come to EvC).
This forum switched my brain on, and said, "no- you also have a brain, you thought you had no brain, scarecrow, which is why you called yourself "wiz" as a sarcasm, to put yourself down - but God can use grey worthless clay, TOO."
I know, I know, I will still be hated, but as Dumbledore said, people find it easier to forgive people for being wrong than they do to forgive them for being right.
(This post is light-hearted, or at least, intended to be.)

I engaged in reductio ad absurdum at the request of my disfunctional compulsive contaminatrix that regurgitates anomolous fallacious recognition processes in random bouts of severe over-thought, thereby contained via the irrefutability cells in my left hemisphere. ~ mike the wiz

Re: Mike the wiz?
Tony, Hi - I don't visit EvC that much at all but just to say I have responded to your message in a private message, you might not log in and see the PM.
(Sorry if I don't get back to any PMs within a few weeks, due to business of my life with work, etc.. I will get back to people, if they message me.............eventually. )

CK mentioned, "hope".
If anything, I thought the following scripture appropriate, knowing Buz believed the same scripture;
"Now HOPE does not disappoint".
I'm sure Buz agrees!
(Hope nobody thinks I was attempting a debate, I definitely wasn't, certainly not in this thread!, I apologise Admin, I did not know the person named, "CK" was actually Charles Knight, so I thought our conversation would be light hearted. I then hovered over the name "CK" and see that I perhaps was wrong to respond.)
