    I’m good with that.

    Also, DT pi was sick and now he’s back, yay, go back a couple of days for details in the comments.

    Well, it’s his strip, and he can troll it if he wants to.

    Also, too…when did the Archie comix last get any fresh blood? I think there was a redhead…oh, wait…

    Disclaimer: they stick this stuff on magazine racks at the grocery store where I wait in line…cannot avert eyes…

    Unfortunately, MiepR, I still have the condition, GBS (Guillain-Barré syndrome). That’s one reason why I value y-all on this website so much. I may not last too much longer. But I see life as much more precious now — and being nice (not natural to my nature) to other people gives me more pleasure even than eating Mexican food (love habanero).

    Because they’re almost always nice right back!

    You were going to watch your language, remember?

    Hey DT, I’m just happy and relieved you’re back. I posted a comment with my email address so you could contact me. I hope that I’ll be reading your comments for a long time to come.

    I said you were back, not un-sick. But please accept my apologies for moderately unclear framing.

    I read a nice piece last night, deceptively entitled “How To Kill A Troll.”

    http://incisive.nu/2012/how-to-kill-a-troll/

    Nice piece and good comments. The one by a guy named Mike, about ten or so down, was especially well done.

    I am good at being nice when I’m not feeling threatened. That was kind of the gist of this piece.

    Sorry, that was harsh. I should be more specific.

    If people are to have issues about gods damning things, I think we need to get some criteria straight about which gods are recognized as such, which recognized gods are acknowledged as having the capacity to damn, and ultimately why such recognized gods with the capacity damn must not be addressed thusly in public forums. I think we would need some demonstrated proof of harm done by making such public pleas.

    DT 3.14; take care, hang in there, don’t eat no bad chilis.

    Stripped of its current modern meaning as a epithet, God-damning is actually a form of a prayer. Asking a god (or Yaveh God) to damn someone to hell is a plea. Of course God isn’t going to honor such a request.

    @dtroutma

    Thanx, bud. I hope I’m never stupid enough to bite into a raw habanero chile. But shredded and barely barely sprinkled on Mexican refried beans with cheese on a tortilla . . . . Oh, precious beloved, please do not tempt. It’s too late at night.

    @DylanThomas3.14159

    Right. Now if somebody showed up here encouraging real live humans to be nasty, that would be different.
    But asking a god to damn someone is no more significant than asking Calvin to micturate on someone.
    I don’t object to people sanctifying entities whose existence cannot be demonstrated. Everybody has the right to their own pecularities, as long as they don’t try to inflict them on others. It’s about boundaries. I won’t show up at somebody’s church and cuss. Last I checked this was not a church.

    Total agreement from me. If there’s one thing I cannot stand — and I’m a believer in God — it’s attempted demonstrations of God’s existence. Such as the Discovery Institute in Seattle is forever trying and failing to do.
