    No, it's my powers of observation. I see how certain people act, and the claims they make. You do know what 'observation' is, correct? You also have heard of 'reasoning' and 'logic' I hope.. and properly applied rather that bad arguments and poor logic. I am sure you can provide samples of the later.

    Lol. Your so called "powers of observation" are wrong more often than they are right, that is, if they ever are right. Speaking of that, how about "backing up" your claim that I am a drug addict? I'd really like to hear it.

    What's the point here?

    Is your suggestion that since we can just barely see past our own noses that we are unquestionably the single most advanced life-form to have ever existed, and therefore god?

    Who here claims to be omniscient, omnipresent, all seeing, and all powerful? Please provide some quote where such things have been stated.

    As for the all knowing part, yes there are absolutely a few here who think they know it all, and those would be the folks who claim the bible is literal, and the absolute and undeniable "word of god" as well as the only path to eternal salvation.

    We've got people who claim to know all about your personal life, your business, your thoughts, one of them "liked" your post. He couldn't pick me out of a crowd but he claims to know what my vocation is. Others want to tell me what I think. Still others have claimed that I have substance abuse issues, that I never served in the military, one even claimed to know that I can't play an instrument.

    So don't talk to me about arrogance, there is plenty of it on your side of the field.

    Playing the victim are we?

    The fact that people question the validity and/or integrity of the stuff you post here probably says more about what and how you're posting than it does about the people calling you out.

    You might want to think about that a bit.

    You were saying something about arrogance?

    As far as what people say about me, they are usually ad hominem attacks from insecure people, nothing substantial, These people most likely have no lives of their own, you can tell by their post counts.

    At the end of the day I know who I am and have no problem facing myself in the mirror. If these insecure people need to feel like they are better than I am for whatever reason, I can't help that.

    Did you just make assumptions about people online who you don't know, after faulting them for making assumptions about you?
