Can I honestly say how much I love you guys???
« on: May 27, 2012, 09:23:20 PM »
I don't want to get off topic.   But I just have to tell all of you how wonderful it is to find a bit of healthy debate...even if we often end up agreeing to disagree. 

You guys keep my on my toes, and I love the challenging questions you guys are always asking me.   

I probably come across a bit more forceful than I mean to.   I'm very emphatic in person, which is why I sometimes put STRESS on certain points.   But if you ever meet me in person, you'd see that it's a very friendly emphaticness.  (oh...a new word!  :biggrin: )  And my body language is more like "the dude" character from Big Lebowski.    If it helps you guys take me in a little bit more of the Zen vein that it's intended...you all can just picture me with a t-shirt, sweater, shades and a White Russian every time you're conversing with me. 

Special love and brohugs to rummy, Adami, bosk, yeshaberto, hefdaddy, and anyone else I may have forgotten.   I seriously have a fondness for all of you...even if it's on an Siskel and Ebert level.

You have really kept this forum fun, and I always look forward to our discussions.   (Until my wife tells me to "get off that dang computer"... :P )

I know this isn't directed at me (as it shouldn't be; I'm still rather new to these parts), but I just wanted to comment on the nice sentiment.   :tup
Sincerely,

I'm not exactly sure who you are.

Jamming dude is it?

But I appreciate your intense attraction to me.

Actually Jaffa...you are more recent, but you should really be included on that thank you list as well.  You have been one of the new front runners of "keeping me sharp".

You see...I'm a hater of "blind faith".   It is very core to everything I stand for that...no matter what you believe in...you should *NEVER EVER* follow anything blindly. 

When my son was 12, he told me he didn't want to follow my religion.   My exact words were...."Good! You aren't educated enough to make a decision of that magnitude.   But, with God as my witness, you *will* know exactly what your Bible says.   Whatever you choose to do with that information is *completely* up to you."   

I like it when people (respectfully) challenge my beliefs...because it keeps *ME* checking, and researching to make sure what the Bible actually says about any given subject.  I'm not perfect...I havn't memorized everything.   To be honest, sometimes you guys really stump me, and I have to do Bible research to get an answer.   But that's exactly what is important for a Bible student....relying on God and not self for the answers.     Always a student, and never graduating.

OMG...you have no idea how REALLY funny this is.   You wouldn't happen to be on MP.com are you?     

Over on that forum, I went off on a (meant to be humorous) tirade about how no one ever got my name right...and it turned into a running gag for awhile.   If you were in on that then  ;)   But if you didn't know about it, then  :lol :rollin

No, I was banned at MP.Com several years ago, about 10 minutes after registering. Wey has never allowed me back.

Well, Scheavo....I'll just tell you what my parents told me.

"You...weren't an accident."   


 :angel:

J/K 

How could have have been so stupid.   Of course I knew this was going to happen.   List off a few people, forget a few others, and then everyone gets all butthurt.   

Scheavo, seriously.   I was doing this on the fly, and I didn't mean to leave you off the list.  As soon as I saw this reply was from you I went  :facepalm: before I even got to read the message.   

Sorry bro...   And thank you for all the great questions and challenges.

Even some disagreement on the matters, it's always good to debate. If we all agree on everything it can't be funny, can it?  :biggrin: :metal

In all seriousness, yeah I see some guys know how to disagree on the internet respectfully. Thanks guys. And let the matters be discussed.  :metal
