If you need to debate religion, either start a new topic in the PRWG section of Off Topic, or take it to PMs.

I'll delete any more religious debate in this topic starting now.
Dear Rezz:

With the utmost respect of your difficult and thankless position, I would like to make a request. Please, please don't delete any religious posts. I'm way ahead at work, therefore a bit bored, and posts like #35 and #41 tickle me, even though they are hackneyed. But it's all the different ways people are trying to insult me that really make me chuckle. Please don't take that away.

PS - Damn, too late. You went and did it anyway, without removing all religious posts and personal attacks. Respect withdrawn pending your completion of the task.

OK... Now this really is getting funny.

@jwing -

I don't plan on deleting any of the posts before I walked in here. I think there's still something to be learned in this thread before it totally goes off the rails. Namely, keep all members of the crew (dogs included) on the boat, and you won't have to practice any crew overboard drills in real life.

Bottom line: There's a place on the forum for religious discussion and/or debate. This isn't it.

Then remove the link and all other posts mentioning religion or move the entire thread to the appropriate place. Since my last post was on topic, as it stands, and was removed, my view is the action borders on censorship rather than moderation.

Re: Dog that went overboard 3 miles out to sea found alive on beach

Good Gravy!!! This crap is still going on?

Rezz--At this juncture it might be wise to lock this thread as some of these bozo's can "fathom" the idea that my original post had absolutely nothing to do with religion--of which I am neither an advocate nor antagonist--and everything to do with sharing my enjoyment of the happiness one man had at recovering his DOB ("Dog Overboard") and seeing the event as a useful reminder of the wisdom of tethering one's crew-pets as well as crew-men/women for the sake of their safety.

FWIW I am most assuredly not a "stealth" protagonist of religion--the idea of which would crack up my (much) better half considering that I have always been viewed as a "rather grumpy" empiricist rather than rationalist--although I have noted that, reportedly, if one holds hobgoblins, witches and vampires up to a mirror one sees no reflection; whereas, if one holds [a] DOG up to a mirror, what does one see?

N'any case, with that, I think it wise for me to say "Adios Amigo"--Oop's, scratch that, I meant , "Goodbye" to this thread. (IOW, "The OP giveth, the OP taketh away--the OP is an Indian Giver"--a humorously intended sentiment which will, undoubtedly, engender paroxysms with the hyperbolic proponents of those of the native American/or perhaps Indian sub-continent, persuasion.

FWIW, "Here Homer Nods"

Don't know what you are on about but am not surprised given your other posts directed at me. I don't believe I have ever engaged with you unless you engaged me first so I find it difficult seeing how you can accuse me of being an instigator but I'm sure it all makes sense to you.

Thread locked per OP's request.

This is why we can't have nice things.
