    I had a creationist classmate,

    she just asked me if I believed in god and I said that I'm an atheist. Then she just started calling me a devil supporter and that I believe in god but just want to sin. ''If you don't believe in god why do you talk about him?''. Ugh, so stupid.

    I see so many vacuous posts on this website,

    people who think "I'm not perfect, so I don't judge" is a reasonable argument that holds merit. If you can't defend a belief, you shouldn't have it, or at the very least, you shouldn't display it.

    Personal Attacks

    Seems when people get into conversations instead of being intellectual they personally attack one another. It's stupid as ****. Why not teach and learn from one another instead of being hateful and hurtful?

    Waste of Time

    Trying to argue with someone who is stuborn and ignorant is not worth it. They will never get it. They won't let you get a word in, they make excuses for their lack of knowledge on the subject. They make you out to be the bad guy. Like you just want to argue and that you just won...

    An Argument Please?

    I have a friend who's views differ from mine drastically. I like having discussions but whenever I try to have one with her she get's angry when I disagree with her.  It's gotten to the point where she will no longer talk about certain subjects. That's why I'm here now. I'm...

    I Can't Even Claim To Be Any Better.

    I suck at arguing. All I do is fight instead of discussing.Why?Because it takes me ages to calm down. It takes me hours to shut down my defenses so I can just *talk* instead of defending myself, or turning it into "a good offense" (everyone knows that's the best defense, right...

    Nothing Sadder To Witness Than Ignorance In Action

    I have found that there are those I just prefer not to argue with, that it's truly pointless. I have found the best way to handle these individuals is to simply NOT argue.  I am talking of the sort that no matter what you say and in a nice tone, they will take it to a level...

    I just need to vent. People honest just make me

    want slap myself. The fact that you're going to sit there judging my life of how it's "a cake" because you think you went through what I'm going through when you have no idea about me nor you're ever around? Like seriously? I had my stories too. Good and bad ones, just like you...
