Re: make of this what you will

There are positives and negatives to everyone... including Obama and Trump. If you can't see that, you are being an extremist. What are the positives of Trump? He breaks the rules and stirs up a system that needs to be stirred if not completely overhauled. This in no way excuses him from all of the...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

Lacewing, how might human cultures of belief get up to speed? Religions as they are are useless or worse than useless. This first sentence represents my most direct response to your question: I'm guessing it is happening naturally as more people continually question their beliefs (their own and oth...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

The benefit from our collective brains and our collaborative effort can be realized if we are clearer and stronger than any particular agendas. Agendas and stories can OWN us and distort our thinking. Then we are like mice running through a maze for the cheese – and fighting each other for the chees...

Re: make of this what you will

Obamanites credit the savior they worship... Wow, just noticed this. Fascinating that you would say this, and then say all that you said (in the FOUR HORSEMEN topic) to paint Trump as the savior you worship! Don't you see it, Walker? You're projecting your own extremist mentality... and not seeing ...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Only a fool would think that there is just one true right way. Agreed. Now if only you could remember that when you're arrogantly spouting what you think the truth is. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt Sounds good, doesn't it? Of ...

Re: As usual

Sure, I’ll tell you and everyone what I think of President Trump. Okay, hold on while I get a barf bag. :D He is great warrior, of the mind. Obama weaponized public institutions to take him down. Oh look, you couldn't go two sentences without bringing up Obama. You're so spazzed out about Obama, yo...

Dear Lacewing, baby... Listen wiener boy... that was pretty funny! :lol: No, I haven't done acid for a very long time...but I enjoyed your story. Perhaps there are some of you here who really have no clue of what I'm talking about or referring to. Or maybe you DON'T WANT to acknowledge certain diff...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Do you really NEED to be so resistant and argumentative? What the fuck is your problem? Trying to communicate with those who are poor at it. You think YOU'RE BETTER AT IT??? With all of your emotional wingnut ideas that you frequently spew? Right...blame your ineptitude on other people and situatio...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Please give some examples of what I said that you see as unexplainable and leading nowhere. Otherwise, you're not explaining anything and it leads nowhere. "I'm using the word divine to mean sacred, heavenly, celestial (love, light, and expansion)" What does diviner have to do with love when a divi...

Throwing one unexplainable word into a discussion, most can work around.
To throw as many as you did and the way you did leads nowhere.

Motive and opportunity

I'm not sure we ever own much of anything. Our lives and characters are a result of all kinds of influences that mold us and/or distort us -- and "our thinking" may not even be our own as much as a collective of one influence or another. Our liberty is also based on all kinds of influence and circum...

Re: "A cause is a good way to keep us young and feeling that we are a part of a greater whole."

Sure, it can be. A "cause" can also be the reason that people do horrible or misguided things. Right? It's also true that we can be young and feeling that we are part of a greater whole WITHOUT some kind of specific cause. Simply because that's how we feel/choose. Agreed? I don't think there are any...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Does your truth also remove God from "heavenly," just as it does for "divine?" Why does a concept of heaven require a god? Heaven is in your mind. You need to expand beyond your small ideas, Walker. You're trying to limit communication and understanding by defining words very narrowly based on arch...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I'll try to clarify... This paragraph of prose is nothing more than utterly meaningless jibberish. There is nothing more tedious than reading pop mysticism. There was nothing wrong with my paragraph. Your lack of comprehension and interest is your own trip. Have fun with that. ...an irrational dog'...
