    Had some rabid atheist trolling a hobby forum, so I worked up a meme in reply. But I don't think anyone in the whole thread got the joke. Oh well, here's the offending image. Funny, or not?

    I like the meme, but I have the thought that I am missing a subtle point after you wrote that others did not understand it.

    Is the man pictured significant?

    The list of proposed topics for the research paper in my Survey of Theology course consisted of dudes like Kierkegaard, Tillich, and Bultmann, and schools like Process Theology and Liberation Theology. I figured they were trying to get me out of my comfort zone, so I tackled Altizer.

    Well I guess I'm as dumb as a post (no pun intended) went over my head too!... Now if that old dude was in a bass boat... trolling would have meant something... Back in the day!... Brother Glen

    The definition of trolling is this... Fish by trailing a baited line behind a boat... Now being Christians we are in the ship of Zion and every time we post are we not according to Matthew 4:19 trolling?... Brother Glen

    Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
