just figured I would toss some info about myself, I am a new user to Theoryland, although I am a long time reader. I will throw out a few tidbits about myself and then say hey, its done!

I am twenty-two years old, married since may of this year (2010) and am currently employed at BMW where I do not use any form of the information I learned during college...at all.

My College major was Biology, I went to NGU in South Carolina, it is a Christian college. I have done debates against evolutionist professors and their students in front of my piers and judges, and done better than well in them ^^.

I chose Biology in order to try and disprove the Bible in the first place, didn't work so well, and found myself a Believer...but thats another story.

I have always loved reading and writing, although I have had a problem with finishing my works. That combined with a practicality aspect "who would hire someone with a Literature degree nowadays?" was part of the reason I went with Biology as well, a man has to make some money.

I have read The Wheel of Time series for a very, very long time. I was a young man at the age of 7 when my father bought the first book for me. At that time I had already devoured The Lord of the Rings, the Elric Saga, Nine Princes in Amber series, and anything else I could get my hands on.

The one thing that has troubled me about the fantasy genre is that it is always an "ending of an age" type deal. It was with that purpose that I started writing my first book, no working title yet, but with the purpose of having a Beginning. I have been designing my own magic system, and having it spring up from the ruins of modern day Earth. It is far harder than I expected, but also far more enjoyable than following a linear pathway with my book.

Thats me, thats my tidbits lol. no more secrets. Mat is clearly my favorite character, thus did I choose this screen name.:D

Hey Sixpips.

Or you have startling new evidence showing that bats are birds (Leviticus|11:19) after all.
Then there's all the references to the heart where the brain would have been far more sensible. As far as I could determine, the brain is not mentioned at all in the Bible.

Of course, studying geography or astronomy might've worked better, as the Bible assumes a flat Earth, and definitely a geocentric universe. But that's really just quibbling.

Now you're just nit-picking.

Reread it my friend, said I was a reader of fifteen years = )

As for the Anti-Biblical shots...was just telling my story; although I am willing to discuss theology, science, and worldview with you Gonzo if you want to send me a private message.:D

Fishy. You appear to be completely without scripture knowledge.

Welcome to TL! (Nearly a hundred posts in this is perhaps a touch redundant, but whatever)

Because I'm curious, what does the capital-B Believer in your OP refer to? I wasn't really clear

That's an easy ony one uno. Thingummy, the father of Whosit, was the SECOND son of Whatchamacallum.

Whatchamacallum, of course, was the first cousin of John, Not the Baptist.

Quite. Well-known fact. Yet Gonzo was clueless.

What's brisket?

It's a boneless cut of beef from the breast portion. It can be really tough, but with slow cooking and the right BBQ seasonings, it can be heaven on a bun. (I like my brisket in sandwich form). I prefer brisket to ribs when I eat barbecue, since I have this weird aversion to meat with bones.

Great. Now I'm hungry! :)

I did this a little late because I decided to participate in all the various forums if I could as per Terez's suggestion that we all explore the site more.

As for the "B" in Believer, it is because I made a profession of Faith in Jesus Christ and repented for my sins. I Believe the Bible whole-heartedly after trying so hard to disprove it, and my wife is our preacher's daughter :)

That's what I thought you meant. Thank you for clarifying:)

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Six!!! (Like on Blossom!! Oh wait... are you too young for Blossom..oh god don't tell me if you are LOL/ Sorry I'm so late, got caught up in holday crap the past week. Welcome, enjoy, I'd love to see you debate some of the people on this board ;)))As I'm sure you've noticed, we have a pretty decent community of WoT fanatics over here. One of the ways that we keep it all friendly is a short list of courtesies we ask people to follow and, once in a while, actually do get followed. Imagine that! Insane people following some sort of order!


1) Don't flood the board with multiple THREADS all at once.
Allow us the time to absorb, evaluate, and discuss, OR LAUGH at one or two ideas, OR JOKES at a time. Some of us like to do a little research before responding and that can take a little time. Of course, we also have those others who are just a bit slow. Read that as "just can't handle more than one thought in their heads at once" or "dial-up modem". Your choice. I'd suggest "have a real life", but not likely. Does anyone still have dial up? Wow...it's getting hard to give the slow people an excuse

Addendum to 1) Try to stay on topic.
Going off on tangents can be super fun and is something we are all guilty of your's truly included but try and keep threads on topic unless, 1) the thread is dead or 2) the thread naturally moves over to another topic. This rule is much more lax for joke threads, pop culture threads...etc.

2) Try to back up your opinions & theories.
You'll get a lot more respect if you can. Quotes from the books (of which you CANNOT read too much) are your best weapon. Quotes from interviews are semi-acceptable. Gut feelings are pseudo-acceptable. Whitecloak blind-faith is best submitted while wearing asbestos panties.

3) Feel free to get as emotionally involved as you'd like.
Discussions can get very heated. But try not to take things personally. Remember: we only insult the ones we love. Or the ones we eventually hand over to the Trollocs.

4) Be respectful.
A lot of people have been around Theoryland for a long time. Being a Youngling means you're new around here. We do understand that you may have been reading WoT forever, but if you're gonna pick a fight regarding a WoT theory with someone who's an Elder, Ancient or Hero, understand that they've been around for a while now, and probably have posting friends. And Tamyrlin is Lord of the Board for a reason: this whole place is his brainchild. Keep that in mind. They also have posting enemies.... a good little bit of information to tuck away.

Addendum to 4: This is an international community.
In regards to the Non-WoT discussion groups, please respect the opinions of people from nations and cultures other than your own, even if you disagree with them or the policies of their leaders and politicians. Try to remember that not everyone here has the same outlook or life experience that you might. If you want to send a letter or e-mail to anyone in particular to indicate any specific moral, educational, intellectual, or genetic deficiencies they may have, feel free. Just please don't do it here.


Addendum 1 to Addendum 4: Please no angry profanity.
If you really need to tell someone off, be creative. And replacing characters with @$$ does NOT constitute creativity. I like tend to like the Shakespearean approach myself. The smarter and more subtle you are with it, just makes the person look that much more an idiot.


Addendum 2 to Addendum 4: Please be nice to Newbies.
We were all new at one time you are one right now and there is no need to come down on anyone for asking questions that to the elder community may be basic knowledge. This is for you to remember after you've been here awhile.


Addendum 3 to Addendum 4: Please TRY not to feed the Trolls.
Trust me, it ain't easy at times, but ignore the obvious instigators. Just sit yourself down between the Heroes and Ancients sharpening the WTF Couch sticks. There are many on the board who know how to deal with this breed, leave them to it. It can be quite entertaining. If things get too offensive to the population in general, Mods will intervene. We like to try and use enough wit to neutralize the trollies without help...

5) Please don't use the New Users Forum to recruit.
We have plenty of room in the other forums for begging for support for factions, theories, and the TCA. Please let the newbies look around for a while before taking sides in any pseudo-battles. ~do not feel you MUST click on Lordy's sig links and join just cause he's Lordy... it's not mandatory, butt shhhh! I did not tell you that!

6) Most important: Have Fun!
We do this because we love it and like to think that we are, at least, reasonably intelligent. Hell, some of us have deluded ourselves into believing that we've evolved into supremely intelligent beings! Half the posters here believe that divine supremacy has already come to them! My vote is for Frenzy, and myself, of course. You know the Truth when you see it. Don't let T and her massive bag o' quotes fool you there are always ways to fight back! With your on bag o'quotes of course!

We will assume some intelligence on your part. You found us, didn't you? Until you prove otherwise…and there are many who have, you'll be safe. If you get hurt if you do prove otherwise, I will offer my one free Healing…but just that once. After that you get to meet a special pair of chains, Mwahahahaa

Remember, you EARN your respect here, it's not given out freely and some may never know the pleasure.

Welcome to our little rounded corner! It’s a great time!

Enjoy!
