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.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for Tassman) it seems that the Wayback machine wasn't able to save the specific page where the quote doctoring occurred (or if it did I was unable to find it), which means that I cannot provide solid evidence.
    I have no recollection of such a discussion and, frankly I think you're confusing me with someone else. Interesting that you find it acceptable to make allegations based upon a vague memory when you have no means of substantiating it. And equally interesting is MaxVel's "me-too" support when he had no idea of what the alleged discussion was about.

      Interesting idea, a thread on this topic. Personally I find Craig's position on this unpalatable.

        I will consider this high praise indeed! I certainly am narrow-minded, but then again so are you. But out of touch? Example please.

          Talk about slimy Chrawnus. You can only come up with one thing in all the years that Tass has been posting on tweb, and that one thing is an unprovable accusation from years ago. You'd better look in the mirror young man, I'll bet you can find more dirt on yourself than that without even trying.

            I have no idea what you're on about. Darth Ovious asked me if I had ever put anyone on my list on ignore, and I said that I used to have Tassman on ignore, and provided the reason why. I wasn't trying to provide an exhaustive list on the things I consider to be reprehensible behaviour from Tassman.

              In any case, I'm reasonably certain that this is the thread where it happened: http://web.archive.org/web/201308270...Horribly-Wrong


              Unfortunately a majority of the pages were not saved on the wayback machine, which means that I cannot access the page where the quote doctoring occurred, unless someone archived the thread on their hard drive.

                What do you mean "exhaustive", you haven't provided anything.

                  You have no idea? Well, doesn't that figure. Darths question was in reply to your previous post, post #29, where you called Tass slimy, intellectually dishonest, narrow minded, and out of touch with reality. And in proof of this you have to go back years to find something, and even then you can come up with nothing. I would say that was a bit slimy, intellectually dishonest, narrow minded and out of touch with reality.

                    Tazzy Wazzy is as slimy and dishonest as they come, but don't expect him to admit to any of his errors and mistakes. He's incapable of doing that.

                      Note: I pushed the wrong button there. The chances of me amening something LPOT says is very remote.

                            It is all he has left. Besides, Tazzy Wazzy accused me of having a serious mental illness that he has been unable to prove that I have, he tried to misuse the HDI reports to 'prove' atheism was better (even though the difference between number 1 and 25 is less than the difference between and A and A- and wouldn't even reflect on a typical GPA report), and he tried to argue that Southern Baptist was the largest branch of American Christians back during the US Civil War (Methodist were actually the largest branch of Christians, in the US, during that time). There are just a few things Tazzy Wazzy has made claims about over the years that exposes his dishonesty and inability to debate views he personally disagrees with.

                            BTW I also remember what you are talking about to, but when Tazzy Wazzy is proved wrong, he projects his flaws upon others (IE how he accuses me of having a serious mental illness that he is unable to prove or show I have reflects that he likely has one himself), so don't expect him to admit he's wrong. He is incapable of doing that.
