Call me kooky all you guys want, but there was a demonic entity that would extend its presence when I used to log on here. I don't know how that works I just felt it. But I believe it was centered around all the intense negativity and links to downright evil stuff some of you guys post so often. At first when I'd get on the site I thought it would be all fun and games and some nonsense ribbing and "tough love" from Bullshido with some inappropriate humor here and there... then I understood things quickly as they were. Then I noticed after a while that every time I'd log on I'd feel an immensely oppressive spirit around. Feelings of fear of being judged and misunderstood, anger at being misunderstood or the state of the world/attitudes/how terribly you guys treat people, envy of situations since at the time I was hurting so bad financially, lust (no thanks to the amount of hot women porn you guys post all over randomly, no thread is really "safe for work" here), et cetera would hit me all at once overwhelmingly... usually when I was trying to gather my thoughts and make coherent posts about God/christianity/etc.

I took some time off from the net and prayed and God revealed to me what was going on and simply said to me "be brave". I logged back on to confront it and I heard what sounded like damp footsteps and evil laughter in my kitchen and my dog ran off and started barking maniacally... at a corner (I lived in the basement)... completely unlike anything he's ever done before or since. I then got angry and took on my birthright as an adopted son of God and commanded the thing to leave my house, that it wasn't welcome there and the air became fresh and clear like springtime after rain. I then logged on here and posted that command for whatever malignant spirit was residing over this "domain" (whatever that entails) to leave.

There's still a lot of negativity and cruelty here as well as unnaturally strong desires to dominate one another through that, but I noticed a marked difference in the nature of it since that moment. For instance a lot of the arguments have been less accusatory in nature and more towards highlighting certain moral standards.

However, I don't think this has much to do with that as it does with Phrost abandoning the site for long stretches after making drastic code changes and not testing them properly (cross browser and at least on a Mac and PC if not Mac/PC/Linux).

That's such a strange narrative.

I simply reacted to what I perceived. No more, no less. Of course, since it does not line up with your worldview/sensor grid/whathaveyou you need to find a rationalization for it that makes sense to you. That's fine.

I hang out here because there's good conversation sometimes and I feel the need to dispel some misconceptions every now and then and hope that I am able to take my foot out of my mouth for a moment to do so (in fact I feel like I have been very sharpened by posting here over the years). That's it. Many times when I took a break from this place was because I couldn't stand the way you guys were acting... "sociocide persona" or not. It can be abysmal and I didn't need it in my life at the time.

I don't see where guilt would arise or the need for it? That's why your/wife's statement just really came out of left field for me when I read it.

If you are saying that the basis of Christianity is that all mankind is unregenerate towards God in sinful nature and that Jesus was the sacrifice to restore the relationship to God then yes I will agree with that.

I detect a motte and bailey argument. You retreat to the motte of claiming that you are only discussing your perceptions and reactions, and when this mostly unassailable position has been effective, you go dancing out into the bailey of claiming demonic influences on Sociocide.

What I find most interesting though in this forum alone of all the forums I've frequented in my internets...

Is that the most common tactic is to proclaim something over someone (You're arrogant, you're deluded, you're angry, you're this, you're that) and then push it to the point where any rebuttal or retaliation by the person being accused is then seen or spun into being a reiteration of the initial claim.

There may be a grain of truth in any of the original claims, but the desire to shut the other person up and dominate them in some kind of bizarre hellhole where the only person getting relief is on the top, is truly disturbing.

It's not normal at the very least and does nothing for actual discussion or truth-getting. The only thing it seems to serve is the whims of cruelty as it washes from one poster to the next.

A psychotic break has many other factors which did not present themselves and many other consequences which I did not suffer from at the time or now or any time in between.

If I can sum up the arguments presented before me they come down to as:

"I don't believe in demons, so I'm going to force this event that happened into my current worldview because it matches nothing inside of it. I will pick the most convenient corollary and go from there. If it happens to make me look good at someone else's expense, causing that person to be seen as more unstable and unreasonable than myself, than so be it."


I'll just leave this here:

"Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation." -

So let me get this straight: I forced you to be a pedantic, pusillanimous ass? Way to own your shit.

My point is not that you suffered a psychotic break, but rather that the smug stupidity of that duck remark can cut more than one way. To you it is self-evident that your feelings of fear, unease, etc., were evidence of a demon. That is an interpretation, and many other interpretations are possible. Yours is the most plausible to you, but it's not a first order observation, and your attempts to pretend it was grow tiresome.

Stop pretending to summarize others' arguments. You're very bad at it. For someone who cries out that others misrepresent him and play tricks on him, you are a regular purveyor of some of the lowest, most meretricious trickery on this forum.

Have you ever considered that you were, quite possibly, having a moment of doubt in your beliefs?
It's not uncommon and it's nothing to be ashamed of and, many would say, it's actually quite good.
It's easier on the ego to blame it on some unseen malevolent force, mocking and tempting your faith, than it would be to have a moment where you question years and years of, essentially, everything that you 'are'.

Honestly, nobody really cares that you are a Christian, anymore than anyone cares what any of us are. Until it becomes ALL that you are. It's part of the caricature of Sociocide and the lightning rod of insult.

Unfortunately, you always seem to see this as an attack and another opportunity to proselytize. Which leads to endless scripture quoting and butthurt.

I think there is an overwhelming air of arrogance possessed by many whom consider themselves "saved". It's a mixture of false humility and mock indignation that 'you' aren't as clear-eyed and enlightened as them, tempered with a taste of paternal/maternal 'instinct' that "you just don't know any better".

PARTICULARLY those whom were such insufferable shitbags until all else failed and they fell bassackwards into the church, using Jesus as their replacement for drugs or booze.

You, I don't think know any better, it's the environment you were raised in.

Let me let you in on a secret: It's not like Jesus is a secret. Everyone KNOWS there is Christianity available to them. There is practically a church on every corner and a bible in every hotel room drawer. Ads on TV. Billboards. Entire TV shows.

I only take cheap shots when something is just plain illogical... or it's going to be funny. You guys used to appreciate my humor :/.

There's nothing funny about a cult member who can't logic and who runs away from debate.
It's like a chick who lets you finger her but won't put out or reciprocate.

Then why employ them in cases where he's being met more directly and reasonably? I get it with people who are merely baiting him, but his desperate use of them in other cases points to another reason altogether.

Which brings us back to our original agreement:

He doesn't seem to have an ability to genuinely connect with people.

Yes, and I admit I have no way to know why he's that way. I just find it difficult to deal with.
