My dad is an atheist who frequents Christian and news sites. I wouldn't be surprised if he is going under the name workmx. They sound alike.
Point is, he loves these sites, not atheist sites...unless they worshipped him there. Attention and disturbance appeals to selfishness and pride.
I know first hand the risk with and intentions of an intelligent atheist. Who is more dangerous then one who knows the truth and now manipulates it to....share? Rofl...discuss? Rofl....befriend? Rofl...stumble, Yes...
Mods need to watch them like hawks and the moment their comments become troll like, ban them. Bias = bias = hatred for God.
The ONLY discussion we should be having with them that will be fruitful to them and us...would be...Why did they decide to turn 100% from reality (confused atheist) or Christianity / the truth (evil atheist)?
You seem to ask legitimate questions and I haven't been aware of any instances where you have attempted to attack our beliefs. The same cannot be said about the others who have been allowed a bit too much rope. It's a tightrope we have to walk sometimes. I often wonder if anything is really accomplished by allowing it to continue, but so long as you don't turn to insulting and ridiculous posting, I'm always open to free discussion.
I guess the long and short of it is, you are welcome to stay and learn whatever you can learn and understand whatever you want to understand. It is not a requirement that you believe what we say, or become converted, but we're also not going to permit people to come here and harm those who do not have a strong faith. We will not allow atheists/agnostics to attack our beliefs or attempt to convert our members any more than we would allow another religion to come and do the same.
