When you say, without research on your part, that other peoples‘ statements are Un-evidenced, you are being bossy or attacking the person.
First - I have been reading and learning all my life about life, the universe and everything, both from the mystical and the practical and also via the humour of those I came to know were atheists.
Second, I have also looked for actual evidence on both sides. The realistic, scientific, biological, geographical, etc etc sort has plenty, of the objective kind, and the mystical, faith beliefs have none.
Third, I personally do not make any claims about something in order to be a source of reference, but unless the faith believers can come up with one fact about their beliefs, then they are the ones who need to do the research, not me.
Fourth, the word 'bossy' is just a tad too pejorative. I am firm and confident, yes, and know what I am doing when I was a teacher and needed to organise a project, and when, for the last ten years, I have been organising the tap group, but have always been prepared to correct mistakes, and encourage suggestions and requests for changes.
Fifth, if people on a message board, a place for discussion, feel they are being attacked personally by me, then that is an imagined problem and theirs to deal with. For me it is an assumption that those who wish to discuss are prepared to face challenges and back up their, at times somewhat 'precious', subjective ideas.
Quote

People’s beliefs are the closest aspects of their person, so to pretend that we can split them without attacking or offense is pretty naive.
Naïve I am not. If people do not wish their ideas to be discussed from a variety of points of view, then they should not be here, but posting on a personal blog.
Quote

On a discussion board, we are supposed to discuss not simply rule other people’s beliefs un-evidenced without proof.
If you think I dismiss them without reason etc, then that is your personal interpretation. As far as I'm concerned, I look for the return challenge.
Quote

That being bossy is positive to you is what I am saying. So we agree on that. That positive, active bossiness, I call your will to power, or perhaps your will to be bossy.
Call it what you like, it won't actually make me personally any different!!
Quote

And I assume you get a kick out of it!
That phrasing could imply a slightly derogatory nuance, but, yes, I enjoy the discussion because it is something I have found interesting and stimulating all my life. As I have occasionally, said, find me something else as interesting to occupy my time, and I'll be here less often!

Susan
