I have nothing to say


Except to say that it is in bad taste and dishonest for a fellow whom you have given an opportunity to have his views heard accuse me of high handedness. I don’t know what or to whom the question he is talking about is addressed. I am aware, if there are any questions not answered, are those asked by others to him.

For example, he was asked by tildeb to explain how, if he is tending towards agnostic and believing the bible to be myth, why then does he write god and g-d?

I asked, which I haven’t seen any response to, how his being Jewish has any bearing on whether he believes a god exists or not.

He has been asked how does he know that those who take the bible as the inerrant word of a god are wrong since he believes it is a collection of myths and narratives. If these and other questions he was asked have been answered, mea culpa, but if not, it is lame and in bad taste to accuse me of not responding to you. And am certain many more can be found in the thread.

As to moderation, all comments that have more than one link will go to moderation. I had put his comments under moderation and changed that setting when he commented he would not mind writing a response as a guest post. In our last interaction which I mentioned in the thread he couldn’t stop himself from calling me names. It is my blog, and most of those who comment here are my friends. You are not going to either call them or me names and expect that we will not have a problem with it, that would be dreaming.

    Consul is a strange chap. I’ve not been able to pin him down to being either this or that, but his tone can be a tad off-putting. E-tantrums are never pretty, though.

    Reading through that last thread… You gotta’ love Tildeb, don’t you?

  2. You allowed him to put up a guest post and then he bashes you on his blog. Well, that’s just not right. Screw him. Mr. “The Bible’s a myth but everything I believe about it is real” doesn’t deserve your hospitality. But I must agree with John, you gotta love Tildeb. Well articulated fellow who’s welcome to dine at my table any time he’s in town.

    It’s funny how he bitches about ending up in moderation, when that happens to me at virtually every Christian blog I comment on. I would estimate about a fifth of my discussions end with eternal moderation or deletion.

    Notable:

    complete misunderstanding of pretty straight-forward and consistent ideas (the Bible is literature, All of it!, as demonstrated by archaeological evidence, linguistic evidence in the texts, etc.)

    That is a straightforward and consistent idea. The question is how he can maintain his Christianity while believing that his holy book is naught but mythological stories.

    There is far too much hatred, bloodshed, violence, rudeness and abuse in the real world. I expect a somewhat tolerant and civil behavior in the e-world. I guess I was wrong. A nice polite response, my Nairobi brother. Good job!
