  •  It's also worth noting (0+ / 0-)

    that you were whining about the uppity behavior of disgusting atheists who dared to question you before I ever showed up on this thread.

    This particular exchange began with your declaration that "genuine faith is not irrational  but suprarational." not2plato—and not I—exposed that notion of yours for the absurd bafflegab that it is, a response that you, with the tremendous arrogance of a privileged hegemon, took offense at:

    Guess you sure told me!  Except you completely misunderstood me and have no idea what I'm talking about.
    That, of course, is utter bullshit that lays bare your inability to support your hot air with reasoning. Which isn't surprising, given that you have so little practice defending your ideas against critique: as you've now demonstrated, your preference is to personally smear your opponents and demand "respect" (by which you actually mean silence) from them rather than confronting their objections on their merits.

    ...But it's also a tellingly emotional response that demonstrates your whiny unhappiness that not2plato dared to ignore your stuck-up privilege. The offended dignity you affect in "Guess you sure told me!  Except you completely misunderstood...." is a hilarious caricature of a thoughtless blatherer caught shooting his mouth off—of a blinkered majority member who never imagined that a lowly unbeliever might dare to question his enlightened lucubrations.

    All of this happened before I ever wrote a word in response to you. You were in high privileged-atheophobe dudgeon before I even showed up. Nice try, though.
