    Following in one others foosteps I wish to say goodbye in the introduction forum.

    There is no one true reason for my departure but I believe all the reasons, they all are neccesary and so this must occur. I have been here only a short time; well over a year and now see that it has to come to an end. I have enjoyed this forum through times but I believe there is only so far one can tolerate the attitude and behaviour of forum members. I have become very tiresome of this forum, the same debates being waged, the same egocentric opinions and obnoxious responses to the same questions. Filling my mind with worthless junk. Over the past few months, reading threads has bypassed me. I no longer bother to read them because they do no need to be read. It is all now becoming tripe. There are hostilities in most threads and this ruins the room for intelligent debate. I used to enjoy the old days of discussion. Where we would all learn something, or at least I would. But this does not happen anymore. There are no connections or grey matter in dicussions anymore.

    Myself becoming agnostic has shown me that both sides of religious belief (or none) are as vengful and satire as one another. I feel it is important that no matter what, in any form of belief that we keep an open, yet neutral mind. Skeptiscism is a very healthy thing. And it is not just the sole possesion of scientists, and neither should scientists use it as a tool to disprove something, it must be used to see truth. However grim and ugly it may be.

    Enough babbling now I will get to the point. This forum has shown me that no one will ever side with you, or take the middle ground. Even if they do, it is false. The most important lesson that this forum has taught me, ironically goes along with a quote I learned a long time ago, that a man's true wisdom comes with the fact that he realises he is truly alone in this world. I have learned that, mostly from here. But who knows? Whats the real reason people come onto a forum like this? Why sacrafice face to face discussions for the computer forums? Why is anything the way it is? I am now in a pool of constant questioning of everything and in doing that I truly feel free. It is by most describable, as the feeling of 'whatever'. or just simply nothingness. Things are what they are and theres nothing you can do to change them. They are the way they are because they are supposed to be. And my learning here stopped a long time ago. The constant bickering between who is right or wrong or neither, what this says and this. And from all of this I have learned that people such as Janus and WilliamMcCormick are one and the same. As are verzen and dayton. As is KALSTER and myself. (KALSTER being the only one in the middle of many of you).

    All of you whom I have spoken to, you know who you are. And apply yourselves to the categories that Ophiolite has done.

    PS I will leave all typos in here as a memory .

    So I conclude this essay of goodbye to say this last sentence, which I'd like all of you to heed and pay close attention to. This is the last your hear of Stephen.

    There is a terrible storm coming, a terrible one. With death, pain and suffering. This is the warning I have been given. That there is no true way to prepare for it. I can't express exactly what will happen or how it will happen or when it will happen. But it will happen, it is inevitable for every worldline. May God protect you, and if you don't believe in that, then may I protect you but I cannot guarantee it. I will try to but do not hold any guarantees. If I have the power to stop it, I will. I will do my best. But if I find it must be so, then I am sorry. Please take care of yourselves and try to open your minds more, it will help you. And the best help you can get is from yourself...

    Pretty discouraging, I recently left another forum I was on for two years because of similar reasons.

    I guess you're tempted by the opportunity to get some final dig in. But you're moving in a good way. Glad to have had you SVWillmer.

    No you don't!

    This is the internet. So what, things aren't perfect. Well, TOUGH LUCK. That's too bad. But who cares really? If you get tired of topics you've seen before then make NEW ones. Stop whining and get back here. Don't fall for the clichè ending (which is starting to annoy me as much as it's starting to bore me). You're better than this.

    Do like me. Don't make a hasty "goodbye, I will never return", but instead take a break and maybe not post or visit as often.

    And don't complain about not learning. We have very knowledgable people on this forum in which you can learn a lot from as long as you're willing. Continue exploring this world with enthusiasm and ask questions when they emerge.

    No need for this drama. People are leaving left and right, which is in my mind very lame. It's like they're just giving up. "Bah, onto the next thing". Well, I'm going to stay here for a long time. Sometimes active, other times inactive.

    In my personal opinion I think the moderators here may be too passive though. Maybe this is causing all this boring repetition of flaming and inane argumentation.

    I still find this forum quite useful despite of this.

    Sometimes one can be alone together.

    You should stay.
