    Sometimes I throw fish at cars. It gives me a sense of accomplishment.

    morality, in my opinion, is defined by the individual. what i consider immoral, you may consider moral, and vice-versa.

    i don't believe in any set definition.

    Well, according to my dictionary Morality means:
    Degree of conformity to moral principles; moral conduct; moralizing.

    Nope, don't see anything about religion.

    According to you Jesus4U, anyone who isn't a Christian, isn't moral. I'm no Christian, does that mean I do bad things? I know right from wrong, which is more than I can say for a lot of so called Christians. I've never hurt or abused a child, can you say the same for a lot of priests.

    I'm glad to see that this "no religious threads" concept is working out so well.

    "Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)"
    Morality Mo*ral"i*ty, n.; pl. Moralities. L. moralitas: cf.
    F. moralit'e.
    1. The relation of conformity or nonconformity to the moral
    standard or rule; quality of an intention, a character, an
    action, a principle, or a sentiment, when tried by the
    standard of right.

    The morality of an action is founded in the freedom
    of that principle, by virtue of which it is in the
    agent's power, having all things ready and requisite
    to the performance of an action, either to perform
    or not perform it. --South.

    2. The quality of an action which renders it good; the
    conformity of an act to the accepted standard of right.

    Of moralitee he was the flower. --Chaucer.

    I am bold to think that morality is capable of
    demonstration. --Locke.

    3. The doctrines or rules of moral duties, or the duties of
    men in their social character; ethics.

    The end of morality is to procure the affections to
    obey reason, and not to invade it. --Bacon.

    The system of morality to be gathered out of . . .
    ancient sages falls very short of that delivered in
    the gospel. --Swift.

    4. The practice of the moral duties; rectitude of life;
    conformity to the standard of right; virtue; as, we often
    admire the politeness of men whose morality we question.

    5. A kind of allegorical play, so termed because it consisted
    of discourses in praise of morality between actors
    representing such characters as Charity, Faith, Death,
    Vice, etc. Such plays were occasionally exhibited as late
    as the reign of Henry VIII. --Strutt.

    6. Intent; meaning; moral. Obs.

    Taketh the morality thereof, good men. --Chaucer.
    I refuse to tie my hands behind my back and hear somebody say "Bend Over, Boy, Because You Have It Coming To You".

    Takes some doing, I know

    Been acting like a 3-year-old all morning, actually We were using PSpice this morning and for some reason I was absolutely delighted that holding down Ctrl-R on certain components made them spin round in amusing ways :shrug:

    Not for their beliefs. He was banned for causing trouble on the forums, which *is* morally right.

    he wasn't banned for his beliefs, he was banned for trying to force his beliefs on us, after we made it quite clear we weren't interested. Telling us we were all going to hell because we didn't believe in his god.

    Imagine J4U was the administrator of this forum. What he decides is law (he can close threads, ban users, etc).

    I think no one would have even bothered to post.

    Let the guy post his threads (whatever they may be). Live and let live.

    Think on this: BradJones is the superuser, administrator, god, big_chief_sitting_bull here. He has the power and authority to do anything he wants. The rules he lays down is law. Whether I like it or not, believe it or not.

    Now imagine this life as a thread, and GOD in charge.


    Go forth and post!

    The Bible tells him to do this.

    A warning should be placed of the front page of this site saying that you may have to neglect your religious principles whilst using this site.

    well.. I do believe brad should have warned him. Marty would have probably been able to handle this better. I gotta admit, I greatly enjoyed reading those religious debates and seeing his views being thrashed by others. I certainly dont think they caused an uproar.... well.. i guess we'll be hearing no more from J4U and will never be able to fight with him again

    other religous people come here without bothering people though.

    although i laughed, i think it is a bit severe to ban him.
