If you post a topic at UM, the discussion of it will be taken seriously (unless it's obviously meant for humor's sake, which happens on occasion). Why post a topic otherwise? In any case, I hope you come back soon.
I had an intense emotional reaction to several the post, and reacted without thinking. I am still dealing with emotions. I think being told I am creating a lie, is a personal attack. If there is not agreement on this, I should not come back. Here is an explanation of why I think I should not come back.
Your explanation of this forum is like the science forums where people are invited to discuss religion and God, only so the atheist can beat them up, and if the poor victim of this trap doesn't realize this, s/he will eventually be banned, and the attackers are playing a game to win, and are not sincerely interested in the subject. It seems evident some posters are not knowledgeable of the subject, because even known experts in the field are not recognized, and what is challenged is not want these respected people say, but the idea that they are fringe, unknown, and not worthy of reading. There is a saying. "Do not argue with ignorance". Seriously it is very foolish to argue with someone who is only looking for something to attack, and is ignoring the facts when they are presented. This person is not really interested the subjec6t, but like the atheist in the science is only playing a game to win. Please understand, ignorance should not mean not knowing something, but actually ignoring facts when they are presented. That is what is happening here. People who are not knowledgeable of the subject have attacked and attacked and attacked, without reading and attempting to understand what is said in the links. To be different, a reply would say, so and so says, this and that, but this other source says something else, and there would be a question about why different people have said different things. Not attack, after attack, after attack, attacking me, attacking the links for being out dated or fringe, attacking anything the attacker believes can be attacked, without expressing a real interest in the subject. Yeap, just the religion forums in a science forum, set up to attract and beat up on the unsuspecting the poster. And then playing innocent and denying what is being done, crosses the line.
