This is the impression that keeps a glimmer of hopeful faith in some people as ambassadors of all of humanity, while I sense that most people are consciously jerks, as one way of putting it (e.g. but, actually, the word evil and demonic is more the word word that comes to mind).

For me, completely against me nature, spirit, and essence to ever be a jerk (or evil and demonic) to anyone. My connection to God, through His Holy Spirit just prevents me from being a jerk to anyone one; the concept is just literally foreign to me; if I did, it's literally like just a simulation or pretense for me, and most people can naturally tell, when I'm in contact with people in real life.

However, what I try to do and learn is to never let someone manipulate my emotions. Because of my essence, actually trying to figure out how to prevent someone from manipulating my emotions is my struggle, because I have a very forgiving nature, where I only tend to want to connect with basically all people, when that may just be something that is literally not possible. So, when I treat certain people a certain way who have wronged me or spited me in some way in the past, it's this struggle with trying not to let someone manipulate and take advantage of my naturally forgiving nature for jokes or whatever other reason behind their motivations.

In defending God and Christianity, how is that a demonstration of an evil and demonic nature? You seem to be looking through the looking glass, from a wonderland perspective, if defending God and Christianity is actually evil and demonic to you. Sometimes, I guess I can retort against a hostile comment, just like this one, except it's actually mild compared to somethings you're said (e.g. when I spotted a scientific mistake in your comments, you than proceeded to both imply and expressly claim that I'm a liar for claiming my educational and professional background as a scientist and chemist; as a fellow scientist, as you claim, you'd clearly know that that is like the most harsh and brutal attack that can be made against someone in science; I think (suggest) maybe you should go back and look at your own actions, as well); and this is literally as gentle as anyone can be expected to be under the circumstance, as I'm sure most people would agree, given this statement and past statements of a personal attack nature by you; look at most of your responses to anyone who has disagreed with you and how you proceed to attack them on a personal level, usually, implicitly; it's not just me; only someone who hasn't posted in quit a while (e.g. from back in 2014) or MrHamWallet are nearly the same or worse.

We aren't talking about me or other users. I am not the one who is self-deluded into thinking I am some awesome person, neither is the user you are referring to. I am aware of my own faults, you are not. The OP requested that you answer honestly. You seem to do whatever it takes to lie to yourself. You either are naturally a horrible person or you allowed someone to manipulate you into behaving like a horrible person, take your pick. Both options show that your previous post was riddled with untruths. If God was real, he would be extremely disappointed in some of the things you have posted on this site. Also, you clearly are lying about your chemist job.

...

Not to mention some of the things you spend your time Googling. Shame on you.

Well, you bring yourself into it by making a personal attack that lacks any rational basis. And, your two options are clearly not applicable. I'm not the one who goes around making personal attacks on people because of any slight disagreement, you are (e.g. self-deluded?). Well, if you're aware of your own faults, why try to judge anyone else for conduct that is clearly far short of your own conduct? Jesus says, look at the boulder of your own before looking at the pebble of someone else; resolve your issues first, than come try to make personal attacks, except the attacks should have some basis in reality. I didn't do anything to lie to myself, because you presented nothing in specific that I could target to make adjustments; in defending God and Christianity, I'm not a horrible person; in defending God and Christianity, I'm not behaving like a horrible person; there are loads of examples of my more than 3500 posts showing me defending God and Christianity, so there are no untruths to what I said (e.g. and, again, you say this without any specifics to back your assertions); as said, have something with a basis in reality and specifics, as I'd pointed out before, after your personal attacks against me for pointing out your scientific inaccuracies (inadequacies); and, I quoted a passage from Numbers showing that God is approval of people defending Him, as well as a video, although it was a debate about Christianity versus Islam.

What specifics are you pointing to that gives you such confidence that I've never held a job in chemistry? See, just a baseless personal attack just to sound good or whatever you're trying to achieve; you got pummeled like three times on your failure to recognize scientific facts, when presented with one, so, I can't see how you're so obstinately holding on to your hope that I was never a chemist or who I claim to be, but, just let it go; spent time Googling? That was your fantasy that you concocted for yourself after being cited for your scientific failures in that example; my only point was for you not to make blanket claims against the scientific and evidentiary foundations supporting God and Christianity, really just providing a helpful suggestion to look before you leap, when, as an opponent, I really want you to make the mistakes; but, that was just one helpful suggestion out of many that I could provide you. Note, I didn't make a personal attack before, during, or after my comments about myself until after you intervened, accept I did my best to refrain.

@dshipp17: Look, if you really want to put the chemistry job lie to bed (because it clearly bothers you that no one believes you), provide evidence for it. It isn't hard to do. There are a myriad of ways that you can show clear evidence that you are a failed chemist without revealing your personal identity.

You are confused on who pummeled whom and that is exactly the behavior that I wanted everyone to see here; you claim to be some paragon of good but it doesn't take much at all to get you to show everyone who you really are. Again, you said that no one can manipulate you into being a jerk but your post only shows us that you lack self-awareness (which is what I believe) and/or you have not been manipulated and your horrible behavior is just who you are as a person (which I also believe). Either way, the end result is the same; your original post here is lacking any basis in reality.

As for the manner in which you defend your religious beliefs, I don't think your god cares for people who act like dirtbags in his name. At least not the modern interpretation of biblical teachings. So no, I don't think you can justify it by saying it's okay to be a jerk because you are doing it for the lord.

As far as your Google history, well you are the one who admitted to looking up sinful and violent porn sites in another thread.

Finally, a truly good person doesn't hope that someone they disagree with makes a mistake. Instead, they hope to find common ground, bury the hatchet, and move forward together in mutual pursuit of good. You don't even try to pretend that is the goal. You relish in this adversity. It doesn't matter who started it (what are you, 6?!), a good person strives to end it without conflict. You do no such thing!
