  • As an aside since we're already there, I thought that the use of "tu" without proper cause was deemed overly familiar, awkward, rude, and potentially an  invite to getting either a right proper stabbing or possibly the number of a burly truck driver, no?
    Yes, but I think we've all gotten to know eachother pretty well here in "The Ghetto", so being such good friends we should all be able to affectionately use "Tu". Due to some posts one would think one knows a lot about another and vice-versa, so we should be able to be informal at this point! :)
    Plus, it's fine for people who are the same age to use it also, and for adults towards those who are younger. Some even find it strange when older folks refer to them as "vous", of couse that may vary according to region.

    I find it more honest and less predisposing to guile to deliberately and clearly indicate who my friends are, and draw warmly near to others more in prudence and preparation. 

    Also, to say that I've even mastered my native tongue could induce hysterics in some. 

    The point was the point, with respects to the one making it in that form and to maintain a theme, I abused French in a bumbling attempt to tip the hat.

    Also, since we're "such good friends" and still digressing, the whole "student of Qi" thing troubles me. I worse than wasted most of my life as such and related and I may still suffer from some demonic attachments consequently.

    No, that isn't open to discussion; you can take it as the friendly warning intended, or leave it.

    You're warned; that's it. I hope that it's just some harmless idiosyncrasy.

  • You must have missed the part where there are no corners on a circle. Even on your pie picture there are 12 corners that I count.
    .
    You count correctly. That's because you're not deceived by the flat-tard devil.

    I did think it was rather odd when he showed his pie picture with 12 corners and tried to convince me that it was only 4 corners. For a person who trust solely in his own perception of things, he has a hard time perceiving something pretty obvious. Is it a circle or does it have 4 sides?
    This is how he tried to show that if you interpret Scripture like they do, there isn't a contradiction. Yet there obviously is if you think yourself wiser than the Holy Ghost.
    That picture is funny.

  • So when they say "quarter" they mean like nine-o'clock?

    I'm starting to see the peril of thinking in crazy...

    Flat-earthers have a lot of trouble with geometry. They don't know how to process information about circles or portions of circles. They can only think in terms of straight lines, and so a piece of pie, for example, is only comprehensible to a flat-earther on the two cut sides of the pie piece, the sides established by the passing through of a knife. The outside curved edge is to them not an "edge" at all but a complete mystery which they choose not to to think abut, so they don't think of it as one edge of the piece of pie.
    .
    They consequently have nothing but utter contempt for anything shaped as a spheroid, such as an orange or an egg or beach ball or a balloon. Ask them to draw a picture of what it would look like to stand on the surface of Jupiter and look out at the horizon. They will immediately proceed to describe Jupiter as a small spot on the "firmament" and much smaller than their "flat" earth. Coming to grips with an enormous planet hundreds of times bigger than the earth is for them an impossibility, like asking an ant to solve for x in an algebraic equation.
    .
    In order to justify their myopic world-view they choose to think of earth as the largest entity in the universe, beyond which is some kind of physical "heaven," the description upon which none of them can agree. Furthermore, any rudimentary exercise used to test their silly notions they will always refuse to participate in in order to protect their myopic world-view. Consequently their myopic world-view becomes for them a "safe space" to where they retreat in fear of facing the stark reality that is everywhere around them. 
    .
    Reality is for them in their mind, and they don't care whether anything of reality exists independently of what they think.
    .
    They take this fearful escape from reality into their interpretation of Scripture where they only see what they want to see, and even endeavor to search all of Scripture looking for ways to superimpose their own flat-tardism into what they find.
