As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Don't need to. You portray yourself that way. We all see the constant whining and bellyaching about what the God of the Bible says and does. and your "how can I hate something I don't believe in" crap is wearing thin. The only mystery is why you spend so much time hatefully blabbing about someone who allegedly doesn't exist.

      I'm not expressing 'hatred' to God
      God doesn't exist

      I'm expressing 'hatred' of God to you
      You are under the delusion that God exists and that He is good and loving and just and perfect despite the many immoral things He does

      Do you really not understand the difference between hating Christ and hating Christianity?
      Can you not comprehend that in order to communicate with a believer like you one must approach God on the level of a believer?

      You believe in God
      I'm just here to point out that the being you believe in is evil and that excusing His evil because He is God is stupid - that I know He does not exist is beside the point

      I hate Christianity
      I hate that it warps the minds of people like you
      I hate that it mangles the morality of people like you

      You might even say that my 'hatred' of God is really a great love for humanity!

        Your evidence is?

        Oh you forgot evidence for this one as well - treeplanter claims: I am vastly superior to God when it comes to morality....

          I'm not an academian, but it seems to me an academian would not make a statement like that, unless he could first analyze every cubic centimeter of the universe simultaneously.

          Even then, he should consider other dimensions of existence, as well as other universes.

          Until then, saying X doesn't exist ... in my opinion ... is speaking outside of the scientific method.

          Does Humpty Dumpty exist?

          No?

          Only a figment of George L. Fox's imagination?

          Are you sure?

            Fair enough!

            Anything is possible and I cannot possibly state with absolute certainty that God does not exist

            However, by this same token, nor can a Christian possibly state with absolute certainty that He does exist - and yet most every Christian holds the existence of God as an absolute certainty

            For all intents and purposes, justified or not, seems both sides are confident enough in their convictions to make their claims categorically...

              Alrighty, sir.

              Your preference is noted and will be respected.

                Yeah, I know. I summarized it this way (two can play the rerun game.:

                You hate 'em both. Your hatred is strong.

                You believe in God
                Thanks. I didn't know that.


                God is stupid
                Well, since He created an entire universe from nothing, while you can't even create a neighborhood subdivision, that would make you retarded.

                I hate Christianity
                You hate. PERIOD. You are an angry hater and denying it just deepens your wrath. Do you beat your dog?

                      How do you know? You haven't tried, nor have I seen a clear explanation from any Christian. Perhaps you can't communicate said ideas because in the end you just feel it rather than think it. Whatever, it sounds like you're making an excuse not to try. There's nothing wrong with trying.

                        Much like I laugh when I tell you that faith in God is nothing more than a feeling?

                        My morality is predicated upon a measurable formula - to consciously and purposefully visit unnecessary harm upon another human being is immoral while that which visits no harm upon another human being is morally allowable
                        Harm is a measurable factor
                        We can see it

                        Now, what was that measurable formula as regarding faith again?

                        Don't have one?

                        Hmm... could it possibly be that faith is nothing more than a feeling?
                        Nah!
                        Can't be!!
                        We know that you demand evidence
                        Feelings are never enough for ferengi!!

                              The lack of a measurable formula by which to assert that faith in God is justified IS good evidence that God does not exist

                                Feelings are not morality.

                                Stop shifting the burden!

                                Faith is nothing more than a feeling and we know that you reject feelings

                                According to what objective standard do you maintain that God exists?
                                Again, your feelings are NOT sufficient evidence that a faith in God is justified
                                Your feelings do not prove that God is real

                                Support your claim!
