While MOS has all the logical reason in the world to leave, I'm even thinking of dropping this place, MOS provides that beacon of morals and an angle of thinking from the believer, and Lord knows this place could use some morals regardless of the origin. We have butted heads and on almost every point disagree, but the discussions are always for the most part respectful and inquiring. While I wouldn't blame him one iota for packing up and leaving.. what place could possibly need him more than a board filled with bigotry  and hatred?

Agree
He should stay - I disagree with his beliefs,
He is a good poster - It would be a loss for getbig

Like wise yourself - Jeez we are nearly always at odds
With each other.

Would I like to see you leave NO - You also bring ideas
& views that make us think & you’re intelligent & articulate ( Sometimes  Grin Ha ha )

Hope you both decided to stay.

Maybe he's just busy for a little while, and he'll come back.  He knows we love him on GB.

In his defense... (this hurts a little) MOS took or takes his job here serious. He feels he has been called to spread the word and in his mind he believes he is doing good work for the Lord. He probably has a close relationship with his wife, and shared some of his exchanges here with her. Being an observer, she might have felt and rightly so, that he was spinning his wheels and the benefit wasn't outweighing the cost. 99% of the posters here don't mention a word of this forum to anyone at anytime outside of the forum, but apparently he felt and I'm not trying to make fun of him, he felt he was making headway for a good cause and would talk about it with his wife.

Agnostic007, you're alright.  I've always thought so, even if we disagree on religion and politics...and probably on sports too.   Grin

Maybe she didn't like how it affected MOS.  IMO, if a female believes you (as her spouse, mate, whatever) are being negatively drawn into something without clear benefit, then she's going to want to put a stop to it.  She doesn't want you to be destroyed, under any circumstances, much less by your own energy.

I'll say this, though: MOS has made me stop and trip hard in my mind more than once.  I love it when that happens and IME life doesn't provide nearly enough of those moments.  It'll only get worse as communication is reduced to very short one-way (usually meaningless) exclamations, in an "I like!" and "I don't like!" stupefaction.

We're becoming dumb, man.  Tragically stupid, and not by our own inclination.

But give MOS time to work it out.  If he's meant to come back for more rounds, then it'll happen.

Smiley

The nature of internet message boards means that it's gonna remain unclear, at least somewhat, as to actual consequences with a true measure of connection to what's been said.  That's what I meant.  It goes for all of us, so it follows to say that MOS (being quite sincere, as he is) may gauge himself more than those who don't invest much in their thoughts.

The smiley face was unclear, there is no "like" button, I liked what you said in your post

Just wanted to clear it up, because rereading that it looked a little snarky.  Definitely not as it seems.  He's a gentleman, doing what we'd expect him to do: keeping peace in his castle.

MOS is our boy on GB and we wish him well.  Guaranteed everyone here respects him, while the rest of us probably can't claim for ourselves.

You two were usually very respectful in your discussions, yeah.  Meaning you each did your part in that for one another.  Right there, it shows very strong agreement on one of the most important things in life.

But if you could imagine yourself in his shoes, so to speak, based upon what you know about him from what he's said: At which point in his experience would you say he went in a way you find disagreeable?

What I meant is, I like him, he seems like a good guy, puts a lot of thought in responses that deserve some thought. He can debate a point without immediately turning it into an exchange of insults and name calling. So in that regard, I found nothing much disagreeable. What I mean by disagreeing with him is his religious belief. We probably agree on a great many things, just not that and that's ok

Ag, referring to his experience which caused him to become the person he is, and how it came about, that is.  To the point you'd find a clear split in agreeability comes into existence for you -- again, based on the things he's said regarding that time.

Btw, not trying to troll you, as I'm sure you know.  I'm genuinely interested, simply to get a better idea of the world.  Zero preconceived ideas are involved in this, for me.

To be honest, my memory is very vague about his life story. I remember one time reading he had a near death experience and after that found god, but I could be wrong on that.

Is that possibly because you'd already dismissed it, even before knowing it?  Not through lack of respect for MOS, but more through disbelief of the idea as a whole.
