Any particular reason you have chosen me specifically to berate for beating the subject to death?FarmerJohnNot really. I guess the real problem lies in the general lack of good subject material along with a lack of creationists.I've never been an active recruiter of creationists. Usually, they just show up as targets. I haven't seen a good target in a long time.----- Original Message -----Sent: Monday, July 21, 2014 6:21 AMSubject: Re: [evolutionversuscreation] Atheistic belief system(had to correct the mispellingFarmerJohn, I have contributed but a couple of posts to this lengthy discussion.

I'm not sure what harm would come to their own ideology by correcting this, but apparently some harm must be perceived. I just have no idea what it is.but I never understand why there are always those who insist on misdefining it and then either failing to, or refusing to, accept a corrected definition.FarmerJohnWow! talk about the dog chasing its tail! Here is this ongoing discussion about the meaning of a simple word. Hey, if you want your particular word to be sacrosanct then you go. Just ignore others.Many do prefer rigidly defined terms. I am this! Not so me. I reserve the option to define myself as I see fit regardless of the available adjectives. Some like to be square pegs that fit in square holes.
