I want to complain about these people, too. In some of my discussions, my adversary, I mean who I'm discussing or debating with will choose to reply to my easiest point to contend with. Parts of my replies that they might have difficulty challenging they ignore. And some are so smug. They dismiss my posts as though my point of view is so obviously incorrect as to be inconsequential.



I can understand someone getting offended when a poster tries to make that person look foolish, so I think it cuts both ways. A type A person takes offense when his/her opinion is challenged, a type B person takes offense when he/she feels mocked, so he/she retaliates.

I'm not sure if all of the aforementioned was your quote, SMK. But, as to the first part, you said, "...who I'm discussing or debating with will choose to reply to my easiest point to contend with. Parts of my replies that they might have difficulty challenging they ignore."

That's normal tactics, nothing odd there.

You also might of said; "A type A person takes offense when his/her opinion is challenged, a type B person takes offense when he/she feels mocked, so he/she retaliates."

Let's promote the 'Type C' person.

Those who cherish diversity of opinion. i.e.: They're not gullible and they don't like unanimity. :)

For many I think they get caught up in that they might have found something new and dive into it head first. Then later on discover hmmmm I think I may have been wrong. I am guilty of that many years ago as a new member. Oh the good old days lol  UM has been a great teacher and that is no joke.

We tend to discuss topics that we wouldn't normally discuss with people we don't know very well. It's difficult to disagree and express your beliefs without causing offence.

If a Christian believes an atheist will burn in hell, or an atheist considers belief in god to be irrational; it's difficult to say this without it being offensive. Hackles up and the anonymity of the net means we tend to be more caustic in reply than we would be face to face.

Anyway. Have to go and defrost my dinner in the popty ping.

that's why I tend to use humour a lot in my posts arbenol, it's easier than being nasty, and most (not all, sadly) tend to get the joke.

when you hear a welsh-speaker say it, it's almost beautiful, it sounds like they're singing it! it literally means 'oven that pings', but it's almost onamatapeic if you ask me!

'Popty ping' is kiwi for 'microwave'? If so, I learned something new today. This day is not lost.

P.S.; Anyway, everything you said before that, I agree!

I'll have to refer you back to Shrooma's post for the explanation of that word.

One of the reasons I keep coming back to these boards is they're a constant source of interest and there's usually something here to give you a good laugh. And you even get a bit of education from time to time.

Sometimes you get all three in one post. Nice one, Shroom.

First of all, even if people claim to know how to do this, they will not do it to show it is true. Even if they say they will, they back out for a number of excuses.There are numerous people here, and hundreds on the internet that claim they can summon these things, or get rid of them. Not one has done anything except take advantage of people, and/or take money from guillible people. I think some of them may actually believe they can do what they say, but not one person has proven anything to anyone. Just words, and cold readings...Maybe some " seeding " of peoples fears also.

I am glad we are able to have open discussions here, there have been cases where people were helped, by " skeptics " advice......

Even had frauds exposed........ :tu:

You didn't think people would just summon anything without a possibility to send it back did you?

I can answer that, and so can you.

I was refering to when people say they can do things like this, say they will do it, then back out for whatever excuse is convenient.

I would love to see these things be true, and I would love even more to see the people that claim they can do things such as summon them, or make them leave, back up what they claim.

If there is no sense of trust or respect between two parties in the first place then it can be deemed a very sensible course of action in any negotiable situation to not follow through or withdraw. That course of action doesn't always imply what you are trying to imply. Try and view it that way and perhaps you can accept that it couldn't work out for whatever reason and it is offensive to imply that there has to be a bad or shameful reason for it. Just let it go -

Now back to the topic because this thread is being derailed regardless who is trying to say what about it.

The ones who " say " it is in the head have proof, facts, and backed up facts from the Medical Profession.

The ones who say it is real have nothing but claims.

Either you believe, or you do not. If you do not, you have no problems with it.

If you do, you open a door to being brain washed.

View PostxFelix, on 28 May 2013 - 09:44 PM, said:

Now come on Sakari, you're just blatantly going to lie and say that there is "facts" and "proof" backing the idea that the paranormal does not exist?
We both know full-well that science only proves that there are some logical occurrences, but science and facts have not once proven that the paranormal is fake.
Oh by the way, your not having demons.. That is just your own personal experience, others may have different experiences.. But of course if they do, they're crazy right?

View PostSakari, on 30 May 2013 - 11:14 AM, said:

Felix,

Lets get back on topic and save this for either PM's, or on that other topic. I can keep asking you to quote me being condescending, and I can keep explaining in detail the vague things you are saying, and put them in black and white. Thus painting the picture that I am not doing what you claim using generalized terms..

It is ridiculous.

Because myself and many others do not share in some belief's, we get attacked for replying asking questions, and stating facts.....Not cool.


I will be around, and replying the same way I always have, so this needs to stop some where...


Anyway, back on topic....

So now that I have purposely quoted and bolded your jabs at me, where you are baiting my replies by mocking me as well as you being really rude and disrespectful to people with different beliefs while making yourself out to be the victim of some sort...

View PostSakari, on 31 May 2013 - 11:20 PM, said:

Second, I have no issues with anyone believing whatever they want, it is when they say their belief is fact, and have no evidence to support this. This is exactly what some do with their religions, they preach it as fact, and we all know how religion and politic discussions end up.

Is that not what you have been doing? Going around saying this is or that is wrong cause you have facts?

Care to say again how I am playing with your words? I am not quoting you? Are these not your words?

Oh and by the way, I touched on your demon talk because you touched on your demon talk(You know when you took a jab at me), then you ask how it's relevant to the topic... Real slick.

Edited by xFelix, 01 June 2013 - 05:58 AM.

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.

what's a 'type A mindset' J.K?

It's the type of personality that is considered highly motivated, driven, visionary, successful, administrative.  The downside is that they can be highly impersonal and insensitive, and lack compassion.

One's reality is another's nightmare.
