  1. lol what’s this, you stamping your feet a little ‘no I won’t discuss things!’

    Sounds like someone needs some lessons in ‘how to convert Atheists’

  2. Huh? Who said that I wouldn’t discuss things?

  3. Steve wrote: “Last week I posted an excellent article by Tony Miano called “I’m a Herald, not a Negotiator.” Atheists didn’t like it.

    I wouldn’t be posting if I “didn’t like it”.

    For the Christian, you will see how best to reason with those who are unbelievers and not give up any ground whatsoever.

    I’m not asking you to give up ground; this isn’t a battle to me, it’s a conversation.

  4. Exactly why I try to always abide by #5: …”Try to convince atheists with reason, instead.”

  5. YOU said you wouldn’t discuss things:

    …you will see how best to reason with those who are unbelievers and not give up any ground whatsoever. It’s called standing firm in your faith.

    It’s also failing to keep the open mind required for discussion.

    Discussion requires that you actually listen to the other guy’s views and take them into consideration. But you’ve admitted – in fact you’ve crowed proudly – that your practice is to enter into these phony “discussions” with no intention of actually listening to the other side; rather, you just wait for the other guy to finish talking so you can simply repeat what you said before. That’s not listening, that’s just taking turns.

    You’ve admitted that you go into these phony “discussions” convinced that the other side has nothing to teach you. And of course you would never even consider that you might be wrong.

    Finally, you’re proudly and deliberately teaching others to do the same.

    That’s not discussion. That’s indoctrination.
