    As I say to my wife and children, "what you see is not necessarily the truth, especially when you are making assumptions about the motivations of other people."

    You "perception" is coming from you - not me. Do with that what you wish.

    Maybe the problem is with the way you present yourself? I don't think I am the only one who saw it the way I did.

    My perception is that you have too many instances of "you" in that post.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    You guys are way out of line. When Jesus spoke about the pharisee in that verse, it was not meant to be a weapon to use against other people when or if they dare to promote common decency or basic morality. It was not meant as a means to deflect or cover up our own sins. It was a caution to ourselves not to be self-righteous. The way you have used it against Carpe is shameful. He was not flaunting himself as a paragon of virtue. He was just holding up a better standard than the mud-slinging that defines these conversations, and he does not deserve the sort if self-righteous attack you've hurled at him. And yes, self-righteous. As in, how dare someone else tell us what we are doing is or could be wrong. As in how dare someone imply there could be something wrong with our behavior.

    Jorge's trueorigins paper: "...it is known that other volcanic features match what is usually associated with impact craters including ... shatter cones and crystal deformations"

    Planetary Science Institute: "Shatter cones … are found in only two places on Earth, 1) in nuclear test sites and 2) meteorite impact structures. They are formed as a result of the high pressure, high velocity shock wave ...

    maximum pressures from 45 to 200 times greater than found in volcanic events (2->20 Gpa)

    You have to learn to accept the detection of your attitude as sensed by other people. Your own blind spots so readily missed. You are missing the chance to correct your behavior.

    At least this is the message you gave in another thread.

    I can't speak for the others here, but you've managed to wholly miss my intent. Speaking of mud-slinging, the irony here is palpable.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Veritas vos Liberabit<>< Learn Greek <>< Look here for an Orthodox Church in America<><Ancient Faith Radio

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I'm sure you aren't. Indeed, pretty much everyone who engages exactly as I was challenging objected to my posts and their message.

    CP was the sole exception.
