Re: Gustav's farewell

French no-go zones are not populated by Europeans, or rather, any Europeans who may populate the zones are not the reason why the zones are no-go. "What is new, is that no-go zones are no longer relegated to the suburbs, where migrants and Muslims have usually been concentrated. "No-go zones, throu...

Re: Should there be marriage secrets?

Would marriages be better or worse due to secrets? I've read that some secrets should remain secrets to help preserve a marriage. What do you think? PhilX Marriage is a partnership, not a merger. You get to continue being a person in your in your right, an individual. If you have secrets, it's your...

But what's it got to do with Gustav?
The topic of unchecked European invasion falls under the umbrella of Gustav’s bailiwick.

Re: British Open

You may not care, but to answer the question, the British Open is a major golf tournament and Spieth is probably the best player since Tiger Woods to play the game (who are both Americans). PhilX Yes but if it was the British Open then surely the victory belongs to Britain. :wink: Then again, maybe...

Re: British Open

When Spieth wins the only remaining major tournament that he has not won, he will be a golfing god. Another god! Wheee! He has the capacity to achieve the real Grand Slam. If he does that, he will be king of the golfing gods in mortal form. Oh wait... KING of the gods! Spiritually, in our lives her...

To be honest, I thought a bit more was required of gods than being good at knocking balls into holes.
There's still time to change the cosmology to correlate with the evidence.

Re: Love, joy, humour, creativity, optimism and gratitude

A beautiful, creative woman, bought me a bottle of wine today, for all my "help" and "inspiration" for assisting her to create some beautiful sculptural creations over the last 6 months. I am easily able to say this because I have been absent from this Forum for most of that time. Maybe if I had co...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

So, Jesus was instructing people to live in the NOW? :lol: Wonderful. It's fascinating to watch theist interpretations of God and Jesus and theism shift to align with current enlightenment. Over the past few weeks, I've seen this reflected in theist postings in ways that it has not been before. Eve...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

Subsumed under what, Walker? (Snapshot to hold: rhythm of bongos and a flute following a voice, dark pants and black turtleneck, smokey room.) Memory is subsumed into the present. Knowledge of the present means what it says, but this knowledge can be all encompassing, or it can be enslaved to what ...

Re: British Open

Philosophical point relating to the influence of political correctness upon linguistics: In competitive golf, which includes amateurs, the Grand Slam is winning all four major tournaments in a single season. Each tournament has its own character, its own history and tradition, and its own difficulti...

Re: Secularism versus the Demonization of Atheists

That interests me, Walker. I had not thought of the eternal now as a synonym for the present time as experienced. I have two problems with this explanation . One is that I cannot learn anything unless I retain memories of the past for comparison. And the other is that I cannot see how 'the present'...
