Apologies for my lack of sense of humor

    ..... I still take myself a wee bit too seriously sometimes....

    I look back at all I have written since I came here... What a ride!

    I clearly like to argue. I think I have stated this before, but generally speaking, I don't argue in person. I suffer on occasion from bouts of "being really brave behind a keyboard."

    I respect theists and Trinitarians generally, though I really don't agree on many things. I do like to debate though.

    Having said that, I am not apologizing for what I say. It is authentic and in the moment.

    I wish I knew better how to state my opinions while being more respectful of others who differ in their views from me.

    But I don't. Maybe I should just get used to the fact that people will differ, etc etc etc.

    Anyway, ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Care for an argument sir?

    Not getting all over-sensitive and simply seeing the weight of the argument, is as much the responsibility of the recipient as the deliverer IMO.

    Personally I find your approach clear and understandable ATJ . . . no problems here.

    AllTimeJeff just come up to my place this sept. 3 and we can talk about it. I have always enjoyed what you had to say. That does not mean I agree with everything you said but when you think about it my wife does not agree with everything I say. But we still love each other. You have a gift I can only wish to have. You know how to express yourself on the moment. I have to think about it for hours or days before I can come up with the thought I wish to express. I am more of a emotional poster on this forum. But guys like you and sizemik and others just blow me away sometimes on the way you can articulate your thoughts. I really like the ones who can do it with very little words. Me I just go on and on. You know how to get to the point. Keep up the good work and come up to the wilds of PA. Totally ADD

    ATJ - Look. I have stuck my foot in my mouth so many times since I first blundered onto this little cyber-stage, that I can't count them.

    I, just as you do, state what I think at the moment. I don't go back and retract. At least not very often. I have seen nothing in your postings here that indicates any need on your part to do so.

    This is, afterall, a DISCUSSION FORUM. There wouldn't be much friggin' discussion if everyone saw things the same way, dander never got up, now would it? In the 'heat of discussion' we all say things that we might wish we could just withdraw. That is why there is a time allowance for deleting/editing your posts. If you see right away that you were out of line, or need to remove your foot from your mouth, just do it quickly and move on.

    You seem to be a good guy. I doubt many take offense, and if they do, well, that is just where the chips fall, eh.

    You don't have a sense of humour?

    Shit, bro, all I've got is kiss the monkey. I need help, not you!

    Sometimes, I am a bit naive about people. Comes from the residuals that come from looking for "unity" all the time.

    It's good to be disagreed with and to have it implied you are an idiot. Just a reminder that such a reality is the truth.

    I still wish I could laugh some people off as opposed to talking about them. My latest debate on the Trinity wasn't a debate at all, just a disagreement as to his/her assesment of their personal belief system.

    Oh well. I think it's time for coffee and bacon now.

  • AllTimeJeff

    Hey Totally ADD. Work is the only thing that would keep me from coming... :)

  • highdose

    ( you want a arguement? you got an argument! )
