I don't see how you can read me saying I'm not being hostile toward you and take that as "I am very hostile toward you".
What make you say that? What on earth did I write that gave you the imression that I was seeing you as "hostile"? You need to simmer down because you are taking things way too personally. I might disagree strongly about what you have written here, which is what you would expect in a forum like this, but I haven't made the slightest comment that reveals what I think about you personally and whether or not you are hostile.
If you want to know what I think about you then you only need to ask, and believe me, it is not entirely negative, but I am totally sure that I have not been obnoxious towards you or acted like a "poopy head"
Look, I have been involved in debates for years and years and I know how easy it is to pick up a "hostile" attitude just because of the nature of the debate. In other words I have made that mistake myself. Later on I have gone back and read my opponents posts without finding the hostility I thought was there.
I suggest you do the same. I have not been disrespectfull to you. Disagreement is not disrespect, and as you undoubtedly have seen in one of the other threads, you need to take a few steps back, take a deep breath and approach this a little differtently. This is a HOT debate. I have been cursed at, had countless vulgarities thrown at me, had my dead mother mocked by an athiest/evolutionist that I opened myself up to, and have constantly been called an ignorant idiot by evolutionists despite the fact that I have honestly tried to investigate this debate as much as my free time has allowed me to do. Ignorant people by definition don't do those kinds of things.
Most of the time I have not been equally insulting as those who oppose me, and I suggest you clothe yourself in a similar attitude.
As far as what gave the impression you were being defensive, I dunno there was just something about your post that gave me the impression you were getting worked up over things.
You might as well have been writing all in caps.
As for the poopy head thing... ::sigh:: Go back and re-read my comment, I wasn't calling you a name...
As far as nasty comments from atheists, I'm sorry some people are - well, something that rhymes with abs wholes.
If it makes you feel any better I've gotten plenty of hatred from fundamentalists, including being kicked hard when putting myself out there to try to make someone feel better and having my comments used to publicly mock me..
