As you have noticed (and we agree), this website is pretty awesome. Why you would choose to not be a member or logged in is baffling to both of us. The process is simple and costs you nothing, unless you really feel the urge to pay then we will not deny you that request. Back on point, once you become a member you will wonder why you put up with this notice all this time and ask yourself, "What was I thinking?" Being a tWebber is too awesome to pass up.
So stop playing ninja trying to act all stealth and lurking about (we see you), do you really want to be seen as a "lurker". Its like you are peeking in people's windows while they undress. How naughty of you. Does your mom know what you are doing right now? She agrees you should just register or login already. Good job.
This is my first post in Apologetics 301 as a moderator, so I thought I'd say a few things to introduce myself to the forum. The other mods are also welcome to follow suit in this thread, since it hasn't been done before.
I have posted very little in this forum at Tweb in the past, largely due to frustration. What I have tended to see is people, some of whom have degrees in various subjects, like science, or perhaps engineering - or women's studies, but who post as though they had multiple PhDs in the subject that their thread is on, and who assume that anyone who disagrees with them knows little or nothing about philosophy (did I mention that I have a tendency to paint in broad brush strokes?).
So I thought that rather than just sit at the sidelines and continue to observe, I should get involved. I have a natural interest in apologetics, being a Christian who thinks that the intellectual challenges to Christianity both have been and can continue to be adequately addressed, and in many cases lack any serious plausibility at all. I also have a somewhat relevant academic background. A gentleman doesn't like to discuss such things, so anyone interested can see more about that here.
So here I am, moderating the apologetics 301 forum. I'll try to behave and to be patient, and it'd be kinda nice if in return you all try not to say anything stupid. Thanks.

And I'll chime in now and say that I hope to please just as much now as the new department head of the Theistic Metaphysics department which includes Apologetics. While I disagree with so many here no doubt, I hope each of you will view treatment given by and large in this forum as accurately given.
TheologyWeb was founded in January 2003 as the personal hobby of dizzle, yxboom and their cohort $cirisme. The site is maintained and owned by dizzle, and yxboom. It continues to function by an entirely volunteer Administrative and Moderating team. TheologyWeb does not exist to make a profit or promote a particular denomination or secondary view witihin Christianity, nor is it under the purview of any denomination or church. Our leadership team, consisting of laypersons and leaders within various churches, holds each other in mutual accountability for the decisions of the site, whose decisions are final. With that said, please bring back Invader Zim!
