I wish these people were still posting
« on: July 31, 2015, 03:02:20 PM »
I've been on this board for 9 1/2 years and I know lots of people come and go.  But I wish a few people would still post here either because I thought their posts were illuminating or just fun.  I don't know where these people are, but here are a few I miss:

OzGeorge--Always good.  Great theological insights.
Heorhij--Mr. Ukraine.  Disagreed with him a lot.
Greek is Christian (GiC)--our resident mathematician and agnostic/atheist?
Matthew777--our JamesR before JamesR
Shiny--do I really need to say anything?

Whom do you miss?

When GiC lived in Reading, CA and I was up in the area (and he was still at least nominally Orthodox), I met up with him for beers a couple times.  Nice guy to have a beer with.

I miss Romaios too.

I also miss Ismiliora, not because I chatted with her, but because she posted a bunch while I was lurking and she was always so nice.
Punch - because he is awesome even when I disagreed with him
Yeshuaisiam - because there ain't no party like a Yesh party cause a Yesh party don't stop!
Shanghaiski - I felt he was serious minded and added thoughtfulness to the forum.
Theistgal - she was very cool as well

I wish that I had been around during Rosehip's time... She's someone I would really like to have known.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

yeshuaisiam - what a trip he was, did the wcc get to him lol
punch - always made great points even if I didn't agree
Porter O donnor - he was actually very brilliant very sad what led to him leaving he was also good at defending Orthodoxy
Happy Lutheran - he makes occasional apperances still but not like he use too
Shiny- Im still trying fo figure out Shiny and that magazine cover, another one I can say what a trip
CIG - I guess he was like the resident atheist by the time I was lurking, I'd love to hear his story how he lost his faith, I guess after Orthodoxy there nothing left so I can't blame even If I disagree
kerdy- still makes appearances, I felt bad for this person exit has he/she she became catholic? I think many of you will know from the last few posts of this person

ok that is it for now boy even as a lurker & now member this site has changed

I am a inverted person


'Being inverted' is British English for being gay. Is that what it means in American English as well?

I've never heard of a person being inverted other than the meaning of someone being hung upside down.  I'm guessing he meant introverted.

1.  Rosehip.  I was around during her latter days and wish, like many others, that she was still with us.
2.  Punch.  Sometimes I disagreed with, but I always knew where he stood.
3.  Ismiliora.  She was fun.
4.  Theisgal.  She has a sense of humor.
5.  Porter.  He is more theologically liberal than I am, which led to some disagreements, but it was good to read his posts.

I forgot deusveritasest...a very interest and unique person.  He was VERY anti-Chalcedon and yet seemed to believed that gay marriage should be okay within an Orthodox construct.  He was by far one of the most interesting posters I have seen.  Before he left, he seemed to been interested in Zoroastrianism.

I definitely miss OzGeorge - He is a very brilliant.
As for Shiny, he still posts here. We all know it to be true.

Maybe he was into Mencius Moldbug or Hans-Herman Hoppe. There have been some political philosophers of a quasi-libertarian or Austrian School bent who argue (paradoxically) that the political system which allows for the most freedom overall is in fact an absolute monarchy. I find the idea fascinating although I don't buy it. Those guys are generally not all that devout or friendly towards organized religion, since they blame it for a lot of the things that they see as social ills, although some of them might believe in a deist-style "God". I think some of them are fascists in libertarian's clothing.

thanks for reminding me about hans hermann hoppe i went through phase of giving Libertarianism of the Austrian School a chance but they are the most darwinian survival of the fittest, anarchist,indivdualist(at all costs), anti-religious, feudalistic malthusian bunch of Libertarians who if was in power would replaced ancient religious morals with enlightenment style "Liberty", the law of the jungle, and a total unrestrained market. Im ashamed I once like these folks but they talk slick and are as just as "utopian like" as a Communist or Socialist.

Who was the fellow who argued for a flat earth? I loved that guy.

HopefulFaithful?
Not, not him. Is he a flat earther too? There can't possibly be two of them here, that would just be too crazy!

God bless!

Isn't that the old believer guy who was saying there a mystical lost city or somthing? I remember lurking and people went nuts on that.

No. That one had a Russian name.
