Anyone that disagrees with him.

I did not write the above. If you can't get the attributions correct how are we supposed to understand YOUR gibberish? If you cannot figure out how to use the simple quote function, how are we supposed to believe you can understand more complex ideas? Keep trying, maybe some day you'll get it right.

These days I've found myself in the same place, with people telling me what I have to mean by 'Christian', 'atheist', 'materialist', 'belief', 'faith', 'sin', 'immaterial', 'objective' and so on.  What can one do to encourage conversation but put one's meaning plainly on the table?


It's quite odd to tell someone I'm a materialist and receive a vehement reply informing me I'm not.
