>I'm tired of this....

No fucking SHIT, I wonder WHY? Is it that nagging feeling that you've

spent a solid MONTH arguing theology with people who were studying it before

you were BORN?? Do you think ANYTHING you've said is NEWS to anyone here?

Do you think that NOBODY on the newsgroup has believed what you believe, as

deeply, and with greater thought and care as you?

 

Let me let you in on a little secret: there are PEOPLE here, YETI-SYN

true, who took this shit so seriously you'd think they were Murphy HIMSELF,

yeah, who would make you look like a CASUAL believer, who would make your

mental contortions look like ELEMENTARY LOGIC PROBLEMS (no offense to Crazy

"Bob" there) in comparison.

 

You've got a decent lump of MEAT above your neck, but it's

UNDER-EXERCISED, I can see that from HERE, and you have a SHITLOAD of

reading to catch up on. THEN come back and say that nobody here EVEN

IMAGINES what your religion is all about, because BABY, the way it is right

now most of us CAME FROM THERE, and MORE SO.

 

If that BUGS you (and it should), you can do one of THREE THINGS:

1. Say, "Oh, well, it's not *really* true, after all, how can this ASSHOLE

actually know what I think, I think I'll go POLISH my DENTAL FLOSS, let's

see, five and five is ELEVEN, two times four is FORTY-SIX..."

2. Say, "Satan's some weird motherfucker to have TEMPTED so many TRUE

BELIEVERS off the PATH, but I guess they must have been prideful or some

shit and so THEY ROAST, yeah, ROAST THEM ALL, MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!"

(this is my response, but for COMPLETELY DIFFERENT REASONS than you might

think!!)

or

3. Say, "Shit, how could people have ALREADY GONE THROUGH THIS and decided

that they DON'T BUY IT anymore? *HOW COULD ANYONE EVER BELIEVE AS STRONGLY

AS I DO AND THEN CHANGE THEIR MINDS??*" Good FUCKING question, Sherlock, if

you get this far I'll personally SHAKE YOUR HAND (someday, warranty not

valid in New Mexico, tax trade and tip may also apply).

 

>"Free Will" is the fact that you talk to me; That you have the

>capability to consider the subject of whether you wanted to talk to me,

>is by definition, proof of the subject in question.

 

I have NO IDEA who "Will" is, but I *DON'T* want him free because I heard

he TORCHED a CONVENIENCE STORE over in Greenfield. Lemme ask you THIS,

mister "self-reference-implies-completeness", is the sentence

"Non-self-descriptive" is non-self-descriptive.

 

TRUE or FALSE? Give up? Well shit, it must be one or the OTHER, right,

because you can SAY the sentence, right, so why can't you EVALUATE IT??

Because LOGIC and MEANING are FUCKED UP! It kept Bertrand Russell up ALL

FUCKING NIGHT, tossing and turning over that one, and he was no SLOUCH. If

it doesn't keep you up all night, you ain't never LIVED, WORM-BOY!!

 

So "Free Will" my ass. Do you know how much of the HUMAN BRAIN is

unused? 0%! That's right, ZERO! Know why? Because I'M using the

nine-tenths you AREN'T, for SWAP SPACE, RIGHT NOW! YARGHGAGH!
