Russ--

What about all the horrible ways the Irish have been treated, over hundreds of years (at least)? Was/is that ok? Is it permissible for non-Irish to treat the Irish that way?

Respectfully, I've asked this several ways, on several threads. TTBOMK, you've never answered the questions. Please answer this time.

Thanks!

I'm starting to see his contributions as little more than attempting to give himself some moral basis for being a complete ****.

Conclusion: he's a trolling bigot.

I'm not sure exactly what game he is playing or why - but surely only a complete and utter turd claims that something is "biblical" when in the same sentence saying something that is clearly not biblical.

It's easy, over time, to justify believing a lie. Not to notice that that is what you're doing. I'm wondering now what lies I have convinced myself are truths.

The worry isn't just that Russ has "believed a lie", but rather that his position is so bloody stupid that it can only be put forward by someone whose only intention is to wind up others.

His assertions are paper thin. His arguments from biblical authority are so faulty that even a basic knowledge shows that they're completely wrong. His assertions of Christian orthodoxy are simply shown by referring (for example) to an authority such as Rome.

Of course, he can disagree with Rome, he can disagree with an interpretation of the bible, he can argue how other's arguments are wrong.

But of course he does none of those things, instead stubbornly ignoring anyone who puts forward other views and refusing to engage with any of these points - preferring instead to just repeat his POV as if that alone is somehow an argument.

That's not the behaviour of someone who has, in time, persuaded themselves of a lie. That's the behaviour of a schoolboy sniggering behind a bikeshed and waiting to see how many more stupid Christians he can wind up on a bulletin board.

Er yeah, I think it has taken me a while to get to this point - having tried to engage with a number of different arguments and angles he put forwards.

But you're right, I could have more profitably invested time in something else.

Not always a lie, but it's very easy to create your own echo chamber. Everything you read and the people you talk too all reinforce your own world-view about x and y. Anything that doesn't fit is dismissed as wrong or from an unreliable source. Or in need of correcting.

[ETA: Once someone's got to that point, they're so invested that it's almost impossible to get them to shift. However finely honed your arguments or the existence of actual facts]

Sure it is. Confirmation bias is a powerful force.

Technology has brought us all closer together. Turns out a lot of the people you meet as a result are complete idiots.

It is. But, as I have mentioned before, he took off the pretence in a Hell thread previously.
Even if he hadn't, it would be near impossible to hit every twisting beat as consistently as he does without intent.
He is a trolling POS who enjoys winding people up.
