I am a Christian theist, and I am inviting atheists to talk with me about the nose in our face.

I read this text in your website:

[quote] Think Atheist is your safe place to come out and learn how to have a dialog with friends, family, and strangers about your belief that the world was not created but is in its current state because of complicated and beautifully unguided processes. [/quote]

You are saying that the nose came about by unguided processes?

It continues. My wife never had wisdom teeth. True story, no joke. Never had them, so never needed them removed.

Indeed she is!  I think she's smarter than I am. :)

I never had wisdom teeth, either. 

I have a tiny partial one on my lower left, but it's only the size of a split pea. 

The others never developed at all. 

 

Nah, they're just evolving and leaving us all behind. :)

Mine was painless.  no swelling, healed quick.  Same at first though.  Soups and the like. :/

Wisdom teeth: fixed with a medical procedure(we no longer need to chew our food as much or have as many teeth to eat). I had three removed, one was never even going to erupt and had to be pried from my skull with special pliers.

Also: Appendixes!

Years and years ago, your appendix burst, you died, and evolution favors larger appendixes, because they're less likely to burst. Unfortunately this also means the appendix, even if it's a time bomb for some of us(it gathers bacteria in the gut), it'll be around for a long time--if evolution favored smaller appendixes, it might go away, because we really don't need it any more now that most of our food gets cooked to remove bacteria. But larger appendixes are still less likely to cause problems, so it lives on. For now.

I am also now stuck with "Appendix love you long time." in my head.

Of course the germs mutated! Satan guided them to do so! Duh! :P

That was vacuous and half-hearted at best. Are you a beginner? Perhaps we could give you some helpful pointers to improve your performance.

I think that opening with a wide-spread generalization was good, and the fact that you based it out of self-confessed ignorance was also a nice touch, but the overall content had no meat to it.

And I guess that's the major issue: a troll needs cast some form of assertion as bait, but you're being entirely too passive and luke warm. There's just no hook. The nose and unguided processes? Too trite and lazy. Flesh it out a little, come back with something a little more thoughtful, and we can polish it up from there.
I have not read all your posts here, except the first few ones; because most of you are always into frivolities, nothing indicative of intelligent thinking on facts.

Very clever at manipulating concepts and words to fool yourselves, and imagine that you can fool other people whose intelligence is still intact and immune to self-deceit.


What is lacking in your premise will not be corrected by a preview function. What is needed is a brain function. You flatter yourself to think that your intelligence is intact and that you are immune to self-deceit.
1) It looks like you wrote this before you ever got a response from us.

2) You make an accusation that atheists are always (therefor in this case as well) manipulating concepts to reach conclusions. You can't just say that and not provide an example from this thread.

3) You say that intelligent people see through it. Alright, so clearly you've got Stephen Hawking on the ropes as far as intelligence, right?

4) "I have not read all your posts here"... then you couldn't possibly be making an informed response. And what do you mean by 'most of you are always into frivolities'? You don't know us and have no basis for 'always' either.

5)"nothing indicative of intelligent thinking on facts", except you didn't read all the responses, so how would you know.

6) "Very clever at manipulating concepts and words to fool yourselves, and imagine that you can fool other people whose intelligence is still intact and immune to self-deceit."
Firstly this contradicts your claim that our intelligence is not intact, since it requires intelligence to be clever. Secondly this whole statement is pure troll and I wouldn't be surprised if you cut and run now. (Just in case you didn't get it, that was reverse psychology and you're supposed to be goaded into staying and actually discussing now.)
I don't think he's got the stones to respond...

True... doesn't even have the stones to read all the responses.
