@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!

Back when you gave indication of viewing my various posts, I referred you back to something that clearly could have lead you to investigate my previous employment as a chemist, but, what was your come back? You said that you'd chose to believe that I was impersonating someone else; and, take a step back, you claimed that I was not a chemist so resolutely, except you lacked the facts or evidence to support your assertion (e.g. even a semblance of facts presented); this was one of several uncoordinated swings at a retort for being shown your failure to recognize a scientific fact after making a broad generalization that a video that I'd posted was scientific nonsense; again, starting out, my only point was that you look before you leap, and you still haven't taken that advice; a display of obstinate, if there ever were such a display; you made the claim that I wasn't a chemist and that I was Googling my responses; as the accuser, the burden of proof is on you; while I could upload something, I feel that I don't have to, since you were on the losing end of an exchange involving recognizing a scientific fact and since you displayed that you were aware of my various posts, meaning that you can go and find your indirect evidence of my chemistry employment; and, I wasn't a failed chemist, but, the burden of proof is upon you to prove otherwise; and I've already revealed rather personal information in relation to my employment (e.g. a docket number for a court case at the specific court in question which reveals my prior duty station and previous addresses and phone number and name).

"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."

I'm not being a jerk, I'm defending myself against your personal attacks which were offensive in nature (offense met by defense); and, baseless personal attacks, at that.

"Finally, a truly good person doesn't hope that someone they disagree with makes a mistake.

I didn't say good or bad, I said an opponent. I can be both good and an opponent.

Oh, and back than, I was more of a Netscape and Yahoo user than a Google user, just for your information.

If I get few hours of sleep, I made a rule that I would talk as little as possible, because in that moment, I am a really big jerk. Really I can't think of a nice thought during those periods of times.

@dshipp17: Thanks for proving everything I wanted you to prove for me. You were given an opportunity to prove that you are not lying about your job history, you refuse to do so. You were given an opportunity to show truly 'good' behavior that people would call 'Christian'. Instead you chose to show everyone that being Christian does not mean you are a good person or that you even strive for good. I honestly never have to put too much effort into any exchange with you to get you to do exactly what I want you to do and considering how much work I have with my research and graduate school, I see this as your unintentional gift to me.

It's not defending yourself to continually try and use the one time you caught me misspeaking on a scientific topic, before I was able to edit in the correct information, as a means to discredit my posts. That is retaliation, especially the manner in which you use it. That's hardly Christian of you unless you are saying that all Christians are childish and lacking any kind of self-control. If you were defending yourself and were actually a good person, you would A) provide evidence that you actually are a failure of a chemist and B) apologize to everyone you have abused on this site. You do neither.

Anyway, back to work for me. Thanks for the cheap laughs.

Citing back to a post before we ever engaged in our prior round of exchanges should have been proof enough; I truthfully cited my case number; if your position and claims had substance, I would have altered my prior stance before you ever engaged me. An employment case is certainly proof enough of my employment background. Again, I've been defending God and Christianity, so, I don't get your point; through the looking glass one more time? You've sure crafted a fantasy for yourself to help you feel comfortable.

Again, we dealt with this at the time; you had more than adequate time to edit your post and your correction claim came only after you were corrected; thus, I'm unconvinced; while I provided actual evidence against you with this exchange, you've only provided your unsupported assertions that I was never a chemist and keep pretending that you actually established something with them outside of your own wonderland and in this reality; and you're the one who owes lots of people an apology with your personal attacks. Hopefully your wonderland isn't including an imaged job, as there's your cheap laughs.

@dshipp17: Never change, Dshipp. Hey, what work did you do, specifically, as a chemist?

Ok, I'll tell you what I did with another round of proofs; I worked for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Health and Human Services, as a chemist. I started there on December 17, 2001, although my official start day was December 16, 2007, which was a Sunday; I was first assigned to the Food Chemistry group; my first supervisor was James Alrep, who currently serves as a Consumer Safety Officer at the Seattle District Office; my branch director was G. William Chase, and, at the time of my hire until my EEO activity first started in early 2004, we were friends; Mr. Chase, who knew both me and Mr. Alrep very well, protected me against an attempt by Mr. Alrep to get me fire for insubordination, which lead to Mr. Alrep's departure from the Food Chemistry group into his current position at the Seattle District office (e.g. your first year in the Federal Government is known as your probationary year, where it's very easy to be fired without recourse); Mr. Alrep's start day at the Seattle District Office was in June 2002, about a day or two after he approached my then friend, Mr. Chase with his crafted scheme; oh, the Director of the Pacific Regional Laboratory Northwest at the time was Austin Long, who was also my friend at the time; Alyson Tanner than became my supervisor and the new supervisor of the Food Chemistry group. My duties involved applying various laboratory analysis methods to the screening of domestic and imported foods before they could enter into the American food chain; while the USDA deals mostly with meat and dairy products, the FDA mostly deals with various vegetables and grains, although we handle meats on a limited basis in the form of (some) seafoods; one testing method that we employed was testing for a food toxin known abbreviated CAP; can't go into much detail, because this was a government job and things are classified; but, this method required the use of a Mass Spectrometer, after various preparation methods using a few types of solvents; another method that we usually used was referred to as water phase salt, where we employed tirations; the method was usually used on salmon; another method used mostly on apple juice to screen for a toxin known as Patulin, and, in the end, it involved the use of high pressure chromatography (HPLC) for short; for analyzing our results, we usually used spreadsheets and entered our date into an electronic system known as FACTS; from there, the investigator who assigned the lab the sample would pick up where they left off.

I than transferred to the Drug Chemistry group and my supervisor there was James Timper; there, we employed various methods from the USP, a big volume of lab methods; there, the lab procedures were much more random in nature; usually, we were confirming the amount of an active drug ingredient, as stated on the label; generally, although various random methods were used to analyze for an active ingredient, we used the dissolution method, but, we would use a various assortment of laboratory instruments from that point.

Over the objections of Mr. Timper, I was transferred back to the Food Chemistry group, because we had a surge in samples requiring an emergency use of the CAP analysis; but, this transfer is what proved to be the ill-fated transaction for me that lead to my current situation; when I went back, my supervisor was still Alyson Tanner; but, roughly four months later, about a month into the start of my EEO activity, Ms. Tanner took a hardship resignation, as she was putting up with a lot of rift raft from Mr. Chase in the background, apparently, and Melvin Kaufman was made the acting supervisor of the Food Chemistry group, while he was the supervisor of the Pesticides Chemistry group, and this guy was, from the start, my most intractable adversary, being a willing pawn for Mr. Chase, when he became an adversary from being a friend.

I was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Everett, WA up until about 2005, from 2002 and my Pastor was Rex Furman; in 2005, I transferred to another Baptist Church or a large, more of a non-denominational church in Redmond, WA, Grace Christian Church; I was introduced to Grace Christian Church by one of my airport shuttle drivers.

Ask him for specifics on his job, he will tell you about his church history and how everyone at his previous place of employment was 'out to get him'.

I may say some sarcastic or sardonic line, but those are usually too lame to even be registered as seriously.

I'm usually a dick/sarcastic to my freinds. Ninety-five percent of the time I'm usually joking with them though. Towards random people I meet however I'm very nice to them.

It used to be very frequent, but I think I've mellowed out in recent years. I wouldn't say it's very often, although it's likely too often that I do.
