Assertions devoid of supporting evidence... your good at those. Not addressing anything... also your forte.

My "finger-pointing and judgments" are coming from observations of the content of your posts... not my faith. In fact any assertions you make regarding my faith are also pointless since I have not introduced them in any substance in this forum.

My 'reactions' have been point-by-point in addressing you... hardly emotional or reactionary... in fact you have previously praised me on that point.

Quote
As far as the quotes... that is just my personal strongest source of WFTO and frame of reference for my Dudeism. Movies come in as a close second:)

Just for clarification please: in your world view, which comes first - Dudeism, or Christianity?  Simple question, and... I'm not baiting you, so a simple answer would be appreciated.  Your posts are well articulated and non-reactive/emotional.

Your place in not defensible in regards to your posts and my observations. If there is a consensus among forum members that they are... then it only speaks to the bias of members Dudeism attracts... nothing more... and it is in no way a surprise. Who else would come to a counter-religion? I also expect the average "member" to be intelligent and logical in their conclusions based on what they have observed (not necessarily what is true... mind you). And I respect people who have at least a pre-tense of reasoning and knowledge in their conclusions. It's why I see value in Dudeism.

Where have I thumped a Bible regarding anyone else? I don't carry enough pearls for that :P And it would be contrary to... (frik'n dead horse again... able to read anyone?)

The pattern in this forum is clearly people like you... (Dead Horse content... try to comprehend it maybe)

Quote
There's lots of other faiths represented by various Dudeists, but the ones that get along aren't zealots.

You mean the ones who are afraid to be ostracized for not agreeing with you? I've been messaged by some of those. And again (more dead horse meat)... where have I ever pushed my 'faith'? You got nothing... My observations of anti-theist trolling and bigotry are however without question. My responses have always been narrowly addressing yours.

Is the fact that I am addressing them "Undude" maybe in the strictest sense (I am not a do nothing kind of Dude)... But so is the fact you posted them in the first place. I am just making sure that your posts are not the only voice of Dudeism on its views of other religions (particularly Christianity) and whether or not your commentary and manner are representative or condoned by Dudeism or at the very least according to the publicly released views it espouses in its materials. Don't worry... I'll be sure to share the overall tone of how that plays out among its members here to the public. You'll get lots more anti-theists looking for haven and most faith oriented people will at least be forewarned of the false representation of Dudeism's philosophy regarding other religions and whether or not their adherents are welcome by the community. Which they apparently are if they keep their mouths shut when you attack them.

It's funny how people think they can just say and do whatever they want in today's world... where what they say and do can gain a global audience in an instant. Does Dudeism have a PR guy?

Abiding (I cannot care less what you believe... just don't ridicule others for theirs)

 8)

BTW I apologize... Atheists don't hate God... they don't believe... Anti-Theists do... in their regard to religions.

Go ahead Hominid. You've lost most credibility with me regarding your practice of Dudeism and have shown your inability to acknowledge basic reasoning regarding my complaints... Basic courtesy really.

Don't launch unprovoked campaigns against other peoples beliefs in a place dedicated to taking it easy and pondering their positive influence or potential contributions to Dudeism. Too simple... To reasonable... Too Dudely to argue with.

But 21 out of 24 threads can't abide that... dead to rights... plain unbiased observation. I am more Dude than you in at least this.

Well it seems clear that Christian dude has come here to educate us all in the ways of dudeism. Personally I missed the star that announced his coming.
But of course in typical Christian fashion he is just a humble servant who happens to be in possession of the absolute undeniable truth.
He means it damn it. What is wrong with all you people?!
Don't you understand?! He has people skills!

BD!  I was wondering when we'd hear from you.  Personally, I'm done. (For now anyway).  You have the torch now.

I was waiting for it too...

Since you operate like a pack of wolves (imagery a BikerDude (and from your site Hominid) would appreciate).

"There are Wolves. There are Sheep. I am the Sheepdog."

In typical 'Anti-Theist' fashion... you're still nipping at my heals and attempting to continue dragging faith into your trolling. I am stating the 'absolute undeniable truth' regarding your forum activities and the fact that they constitute the very unwanted actions you fear from Christians (as previously noted by others among this community in 'Icon'ic times past). And yes... I am re-educating you in some basic concepts regarding Dudeism and it's relation and/or non-concern with certain aspects other religions concern themselves with and the fact that that allows those having other core faiths to Abide in Dudeism. <Bring in the new horse please...>

Quote
A: Like Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, Dudeism is a non-theistic religion. That isn?t to say Dudeists necessarily don?t believe in God or a godlike power in the universe, only that passing judgment on this issue is not one of Dudeism?s goals. Like the Eastern religions just mentioned, Dudeism is interested in the here and now, not the there and then. The Dudeist objective is to make our lives more pleasant and meaningful to ourselves and each other.

Quote
We invite other people to tell us what they think is 'dude' or 'undude.'

I have not engaged in the promotion or even the defense of the Christian faith... merely the freedom and opportunity for it to be allowed to have representation in its contributions to Dudeism free of trolling attacks from other faiths and Anti-Theists. I guess this is frustrating for you guys hoping to attack a belief system. By all means keep up the heel nipping... it continues to give credibility to my sensible criticism.

Maybe we should ask The Dudely Lama to alter the definition of Dudeism... Something like:

To be more in keeping with the tendencies of its 'Priesthood'

You are always lurking nearby.
They say that trolls (the mythological creatures that live under bridges. Not the forum variety) are drawn by the smell of Christian blood. Gotta love them ugly bastards. They are like Lemme.
You always show when the Christians start ranting. Funny that. Ha?

No blood here... Not likely to be. You're hitting wind. Your posts are starting to look like you've imbibed too much... for posting anyway:)

It would be interesting to see what two obviously intelligent people might contribute if they didn't waste their time and efforts putting others down... and trying to score anti-theist brownie points for the afterlife :)

Well you've gotten to a point that you are difficult to understand but I'll say that nobody that I can see has put anybody down except you.
This is the reaction that we have seen before from Christians. Conflating the criticism of beliefs with a personal injury. Playing the hurt card.

So what makes you so intelligent compared to the rest of us? Is there some form of Dudeist theology that we can take?

Well dude, it's been boring here for a while other than chatter about primaries, which I don't understand other than watching Trump being a circus clown.  ChristianDude has been the best one yet, no?
