Just for the sake of context should people look back on these posts, I decided to put back up my original post, mis-spellings and all. . I really had viewed it as an off the cuff throw away post on a Friday Night and did not give it much thought till the next day when shit loads of people that are not normal readers came on.
A few points:
1. I stand my my apology for the first post, for the reasons I list and ONLY the reasons I list. Some people have read more into my apology than I meant. I am not acquiescing to atheists because I was never against atheists to begin with. The post was about the level of bile, hyperbole, and vitriol that I have found from atheist in their arguing tactics. Yet, this was taken as a window for people to attack atheism itself as well as a platform for atheists to attack me for things that I did not say or endorse. I truly had no idea how ready both sides are to jump at any opportunity to spew. I live and learn.
2. As to whether I am correct or not about the tone of discourse in many atheist arguments, I invite the comments made on these posts to stand as testimony and let people make up their own minds.
3. I have shut down comments to those posts, as well as this one. This is something I have never done before, but considering the staggering amount of people from outside normal readership that have shown up here just to preach either for or against atheism or against Sorcery, or demand that I magic everyone into submission, and all kinds of other bs, I feel it is necessary. I will delete any further comments on these posts, or related comments that appear on un-related future posts.
To those people, theist or atheist, who made honest comments that dealt with the ideas presented, thank you for your comments, and be well.
