in response to reader comment: trans-parere, and Infidel's petulance

O.k. Infidel. Your too clever by half and I capitulate all reasoned opinion to you. To answer your last post I will use quotes from both of our post and show you how you purposely misrepresent yourself to further your arguments and antipathy.

1/ I wrote in answer to to another poster. Not yourself.

"I believe spiritual success is knowing to differentiate between that which we intuitively understand as just and pleasing to God, and that which religionist are conditioned to believe as part and parcel of their system of belief".

You pounced on my post with.

"Pleasing GOD is not intuition, its studying the BIBLE, praying on a daily basis and accepting and obeying GOD'S commandments."

See how you twisted and perverted my original statement. Nothing to do with what I wrote just you imposing yourself as an authority. Your assertion as to how to please God has no bearing on what, in the absence of religion, we as humans intuitively recognise as what must be in truth.

Ecclesiastes 7

23 For thy conscience knoweth that thou also hast often spoken evil of others.

1a/ After dictating to me that pleasing God is "studying the BIBLE, praying on a daily basis and accepting and obeying GOD'S commandments." You then go on to create a lie with in a lie by writing,

"And if I never revealed my religion, how is that I'm pushing it?"

Your arguments are so convoluted you even contradict yourself. And you wonder why I find I can not trust what you have to say? You don't think saying, "studying the BIBLE, and accepting and obeying GOD'S commandments." reveals your religion. ? You loose all credibility here.

1b/ I will not use your post dated Apr 11, 2008. It is nothing but self-aggrandisement, ridicule and belittlement of my answering post to Lactantius Jr. The exception is to point out that you continue to misrepresent my post to further your argument by misusing my use of the word intuition to continue your attack. And I quote."Please don't tell anybody, as I'm dealing with your powerful scrutiny of my previous articles, based on the power of your "INTUITION". Perhaps, in your next article, you can advise us foolish book readers as to how we can gain more knowledge through, "INTUITION". Please notice that I'm seriously considering "intuition", instead of book reading, (OK maybe). "

What tripe. Just more of your nonsense. Anything to continue an attack rather than conversing with your own opinion and reason on topic.

2/ I hope this is enough to show you what you already know and have done purposefully. Your last post Apr 13, 2008 is just more of your prevarications and I wonder who your intended audience is. It can't be me. If it is, you have so much disregard for me that you think any old lie will suffice and that I'm too dumb to converse with honestly. I hope I have shown you enough of how you have been:

(Infidel)(give me some examples of my duplicitous)

(Infidel)(can you me some examples of my words that misrepresent it's use)

(Infidel)(how did I hijack your "post")

(Infidel)(what information do you have that "I'm a false person or ill-mannered", some examples would be appropriate)(or is the proof, that you said so)

Please, never again enjoin my post. I'm here in communication with Dr. Pipes and those who appreciate an opinion other than just their own on the topic at hand. Not those who project an intolerance of others in the face of crimes committed by a few, manipulated by a conceived authority, or a need to belong, or an outlet for their own criminality. We have laws to deal with them and there is no need to disparage a whole culture or religion for those actions.

I say this to you just as I would those who would attack Christianity for the child abuse done by its adherents. The rapes done by Christians. The banks robbed by Christians. The women and children and brothers and sisters killed by Christians. The homosexual intolerance and physical attacks on those persons because of words written in their Bible. It goes on and on and it goes on in all cultures and all religions. And it will in my opinion go on and on for as long as human beings maintain a tribalist mindset and must need cultural separators and a sense of superiority over their fellow human beings.

You named six Moslem criminals as justification to disparage all Moslems and Islam while some hundreds of thousands of Moslems reside in Canada and live peacefully and in conjunction with their neighbours. Is that written in your Bible too. Does your Bible justify your behavior. I hope not. If it does your no different than those Islamist who interpret the Koran to justify behaving as beast rather than respectful and considerate people acknowledging a diversity of opinion and religious belief.

Good Bye.
