    It's no surprise. It's what we've come to expect from you.

    He's just figured out religion. We have a new non-believer.

    Wait! Your buddy Q posted this.

    That's why we've been quarreling.

    interpreting the dog's activity as "faithfulness", and "kindness", is faith in the unknown, based on what exactly? Why not interpret it as purely biological response to a pack leader providing food? Why not call it healthy fear of a more powerful pack member, instead of kindness? I find that an arbitrary choice, made by pet lovers, influenced by culture, perfectly non-universal, personal, and unproven... i.e. faith.


    edit - faith that he will behave as previously is not faith, it is just inference. Faith that the dog is "kind" is faith.

    You can end that kind of rudeness by not responding rather than responding in kind.

    Of course you would say that; because Q is on your side. How disingenuous!

    Q isn't on my "side". I don't condone rudeness.

    Do you condone the rude things that Q says about believers? Calling them idiotic and stupid?

    No. That was my point.

    Could you please stop quoting the idiotic pictures? I have the troll on ignore, and you're kind of defeating the purpose.

    When I see Mazulu's posted pictures I rarely laugh. I don't cringe either. I generally just think that there's a disturbed person behind it. I could be wrong however but I don't generally see a "prankster" behind them. If that was the case he wouldn't have been banned so often I wouldn't think.

    When I see the more recent pictures I can't help but think about the pictures and comments that got him banned in the past.

    You see them differently?
