PUBLIC VIEWPOINT: Debate Over God Will Never End

Posted: January 17, 2013 at 2:05 a.m.

I loved your article on Fayetteville Freethinker Doug Krueger, who applies his “wit and intellect with obvious glee” in debates with Christians. Good for him. Apply away!

I love cell phones on planes and at airports. They present wonderful opportunities to interact with your fellow travellers.

I was reading a novel waiting in a terminal in Chicago. A lady sitting across from me was having a antimated, loud, annoying, meaningless conversation about trivial nothing with someone. Finally distracted to the point she was impossible to ignore I put my book down and simply cupped my ear and statred at her sitting there on the bench about 6 feet across from me. She noticed almost immediately and loudly announced, "Sir, this is a private conversation!" I replied to polite applause nearby, "Private hell, lady. They can hear you in San Francisco!".

Then there was the tough big shot guy loudly and a bit "proudly" berating what sounded like his secretary on a cell phone from the terminal. As I walked passed him I said loudly and clearly enough I hoped the poor person on the other end heard too, "Yo, dude. Lighten up. If I was her I'd pee in your coffee when you got back.". The lady behind me added, "I would!".

Ain't people just grand? They can certainlly be entertaining.

About Brother Doug, (aka FFT)

Like you, Mr. Murray, I sure would like to set in on debate and even more than setting in, I would like to have money on the outcome. But, you see, it will never occur, because Prof Doug will be debating with Satan as the actual existance of Hell.

And since FFT Krueger admits that his position is constantly evolving since he is still learning, he has no problem advising others how they should believe.
