Re: The Decline of Violence

Post by Smith1776 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 8:09 pm

I really hate violence.

I used to be quite into boxing and kickboxing as a teenager. A large part of why I stopped was because I didn't like the idea of harming someone else, even if it's just part of a sport.

Martial arts training? Sure, I'll still do that. But no real fights for me.

The religion thread is at 365 pages. Gold scream room at 219. Then there are a few in the 50-70 range: Trump as tragicomedy, nowhere to hide, stock scream room, will Trump be re-elected, Youtube Junkie, Proving Morality.

Decline of violence is here at 49.

Interesting. Appears people are a lot more interested in what happens after death than gold, Trump, stocks, YouTube and morality (unless you are a 'religion is for your best life now' adherent). Most people are smart. Will it be 8) or >:D for you?

I would be curious to know what % of the posts in the Religion thread are yours. Is the forum concerned or are you? ;)

According to a quick scan of forum stats, I've posted 1099 times (many/most answering questions or responding to comments of others - feel free to do the exact math if you wish to determine accuracy of my parenthetical statement; I don't have the time nor the will to do so) in the "Figuring Out Religion (FOR)" thread and 3411 times in all forum threads including this post. There are 4370 total posts in the FOR thread and a total of 473,035 views in the FOR thread. I can assure you that not anywhere close to all of those 473,035 views are mine. ;D I report, you decide on the answer to your last question above. ;) :)

I'll have to take your word for it that less than 3000 of the 4370 are yours. I'll have to do some soul searching on the other question.
