Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

    What's the relevance of this post to the thread?

        There is more to being in love than being horny.

          Not really, I suspect it's the irritating compulsion many men have to jump in and make sure nobody says something negative about women without adding a similar corresponding statement about men but I'm still hoping it's something else.

Even when the intended victim is shown video tape of their loved one planning out their murder it is not unheard of for them to be completely willing to forgive them and want to "work things out."
            yup
            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

              Case in point (though in reverse) Burt and Linda Pugach:

              Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burt_Pugach

              In 1959 Pugach began an infamous courtship of Linda Riss, a 21-year-old woman from the East Bronx. Upon discovering that Pugach had a wife and daughter, Riss broke off their relationship. Pugach then threatened to kill or hurt Riss if she left him, saying "If I can't have you, no one else will have you, and when I get through with you no one else will want you." Riss reported the threat to the New York Police Department to no avail.

              Upon hearing of her engagement to Larry Schwartz, Pugach hired three assailants to attack Riss. The assailants threw lye in Riss's face, leaving her blind in one eye, nearly blind in the other, and permanently scarred. Pugach was convicted of the crime and spent 14 years in prison, during which time he continually wrote to Riss.

              After he was released from prison in 1974, Pugach and Riss resumed their relationship and married soon thereafter. In 1976 they co-wrote a book, A Very Different Love Story.

              In 1997 Pugach was once again accused of threatening a woman with whom he was having an affair. His wife, Linda, appeared at his trial as a character witness for him.

                    Teal said she was beautiful. I doubt Samson was attracted to Delilah's whiny personality.

                    What besides sex would entrance the man to give up that secret?

                      Coming from a man who does exactly that on every ideological issue, you must find yourself very irritating.

                          It explicitly says he got tired of her nagging.
