    That doesn't mean there was no element of trolling in it, though it was insightful. The best ones are often intelligent. He just chose to see it as dumb because it wasn't applicable to reality as it exists for most people.

    I really meant to refer to the picture of the troll face, and his assumption that he had been trolled.
    Uh... the whole point of that cartoon is that people either claim to be trolling, or claim to be seeing something beyond the audience, when in reality, they just said something really stupid, and are too stubborn or proud to admit it.

    It's OK to be human, guys

    For me, with the God question:

    "It all assumes that the concept of 'God' is even coherent. Given the fact that different people have mutually incompatitble definitions of their deity, it's virtually impossible for us to agree on what this concept 'God' means. So unless--by some almost impossible chance--we can find a definition of 'God' that is consistent, I'll have to say that the concept of 'God' is empty."-- an apathetic ignostic talking.

    Assumption-questioning is my job, it seems.
    “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    Any well developed NT will employ far better debate tactics whether it's for sport or not.

    I do appreciate the post though, it made me laugh.

    I also just discovered this emoticon and I love it.
