  1. I have social anxiety, too. I was diagnosed with it when I was 16, along with Asperger syndrome, which I'm not completely convinced that I actually have. I'm prone to dealing with bouts of depression, extreme anxiety, and social isolation, which last for anywhere from weeks to months at a time. Social anxiety with depression sucks because not only do you feel depressed, talking about it with other people makes you feel anxious, so you end up trying to suck it up and deal with it on your own. I spent a large chunk of my adolescent years dealing with suicidal thoughts on my own without telling anyone or seeking any type of help whatsoever, mostly because I had friends who were also suicidal and ended up in psych wards for either telling other people or trying to take matters into their own hands. I never attempted suicide, though, and it wasn't until recently that I sought psychiatric treatment for my depression and social anxiety. (I suspect that I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, but because both disorders have the same treatment, my therapist only officially diagnosed me with SAD. She doesn't really focus on the label except in matters of insurance coverage). I'm on anti-depressants, which help, and I'm developing coping mechanisms to deal with anxiety and other negative feelings.
  2. When the person you're debating with starts using personal attacks, it is safe to assume that they don't have a leg to stand on. It's kind of like the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where the knight gets his arms and legs cut off but thinks he can still fight.
  3. Pictures of scantily-clad, redheaded women wearing neck ties are instant bad mood killers, IMO.

  4. Could you stop calling the pastor "a gay"? It's somewhat offensive and it's grating on me. In what context did this pastor visit heaven? Was it a near-death experience? If so, they're somewhat common. Don't quote me on this, but I think I remember reading somewhere that the typical near-death experience (seeing a bright light, feeling like you're disconnected from your body, etc.) is a byproduct of oxygen deprivation. Either that or he's lying. Xians, even pastors, are not above lying. I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say here. As to hard evidence, what is your hard evidence that god exists? It's very convenient that you say that I need hard evidence to prove that god doesn't exist when you don't have any that he does exist and then you say that you're not interested in answering the question. Are you screwing with us, or are you truly that confused? You say that you hate god, but that god loves everyone and that you still pray and ask for forgiveness for sins. If you actually hated god, then you wouldn't want to pray to him or say nice things about him. Either you hate god or you don't. Which is it? Also, why would I feel "guilty with god", whatever that means, if I didn't even believe in god to begin with? Why would I waste my time worrying about what a deity that I don't worship or even believe exists thinks of me?
  5. What pastor is this? I have a feeling that you're talking about Ted Haggard. You first said that this pastor was proven to be gay, but then you put "rumor" in parentheses. Is this pastor really gay, or is it just a rumor? Your question is how can god let a pastor be gay when this same god is against homosexuality. I have a question for you: if god is against homosexuality, then why has this gay pastor visited heaven so many times? If homosexuality is a sin and this man hasn't repented from his sin, he'd be going to hell, right? As to whether or not I hate god, I can't hate something that is non-existent.
  6. Eh, Bill O'Reilly and his comrades are a waste of oxygen. He just likes to scream at people. It would be entertaining as hell to see him get bitch-slapped right across his fat face on TV. I wonder how many times the fat on his face would jiggle from the force of the blow...
  7. That would be a great episode of Maury. There would be Mary and some other chick and Maury would try to determine which woman is the mother while they both cuss each other out and claw at each other. Then Solomon would be in the audience and suggest that they just cut Jesus in half. "No! We must crucify him first!" they would say. For the record, I don't watch Maury, I just know that it exists and I know the kinds of crap that they put on that show.
  8. Atheism is a lack of a belief in a god. Do you believe in Zeus or Athena? If not, then you are an atheist when it comes to these deities. Atheists don't all have the same beliefs. The only thing that we really have in common is that we lack a belief in a particular deity. Faith is completely unnecessary.
  9. I don't think I want to taste your Jesus, thanks. Consuming the flesh of a 2,000 year old person wouldn't be too appetizing, assuming that there would be enough flesh there to consume. Maybe I'm taking this too literally? Seriously, though, I do agree with you that that is a pretty stupid email.
  10. This little tantrum reminds me of this. Dorksided!
  11. You mean, Roombas? Phanta You know, he may be onto something. I know an atheist who has a Roomba. It must be a tool of Satan! I'll bet you that Satanists probably use Roombas to clean up after their Satanic rituals!
  12. I am! I swear, though, this has to be some kind of prank. I don't understand what the hell this guy is on about now. Robots, Jews, and "darkys"? Jesus Christ! Where the hell are you from?! Could you seriously be any more racist?
  13. The only thing here that's sad is your feeble attempt at writing a coherent sentence. I could write better than you can when I was in Kindergarten, for fuck's sake. You can pray for us all you want but I very much doubt that it will have the effect that you're after. Prayer is nothing more than mental masturbation. I suggest that you read that link and become enlightened, assuming that you can, in fact, read. Mental masturbation can be fun, and I do quite a bit of it myself, but it can only get you so far, you know? Sometimes, you have to take a more physical approach, if you know what I mean.
  14. Xian is a valid abbreviation that has its roots in Ancient Greek. Christ is written this way in Greek: Χριστός. If the person is offended, then he/she doesn't understand where the abbreviation originated. "X-eists" makes no sense whatsoever, and it further demonstrates the person's ignorance. Personally, I wouldn't bother with the person who's offended. I was in this same situation with a xian before and even when I explained where the abbreviation came from, she was still offended. He/she most likely just wants to be offended.
  15. LMAO. It would be highly amusing to watch that take place, either that or highly disturbing. It'd be even funnier if you got an old lady to do that, film it, and put it on YouTube.
