Why do you think there aren't many more validations than just the one you've decided to imaginatively fixate on from 28 years ago?

Re: I need someone to talk to

Thank you. But I am extremely doubtful that I can ever achieve good meaning in my life without my good moods though due to everything I've just explained. I am really thinking here that I absolutely need and will forever need my good moods no matter what in order to find good meaning in this life s...

Re: Why the USA isn't the greatest nation on Earth

HA! Well, I agree with just about everything you said... and my own response is, it's so horrific and outrageous, it's laughable. It's certainly not unreasonable to run screaming into the woods laughing maniacally. I think Obama is doing the dance he must do. A lot of politicians probably had more c...

Re: I need someone to talk to

MozartLink... you've given this a lot of thought. It's admirable to try to be truthful and aware about oneself. I do think people and their thinking can evolve, as new information and experiences are encountered. There may be a steady thread in all of us, all throughout our lives... but there are so...

Re: Atheists are smarter , but it seems also more creative.

How could I possibly BLAH BLAH BLAH BOBLAH BLAH BLAH BOBLAH BLAH without divine guidance, huh? How does anyone (atheist or theist or any other superficial label) do ANY of the amazing things they do, BOB, and have any of the divine insights and strokes of genius seemingly "out of nowhere" that they...

Re: Is God everywhere or not?

Please re-read what I have written, and pay particular attention to the last sentence. Yes, I see... you are saying it can work both ways (right?)... and I started out saying something that sounded the same. But maybe as you can see, I went on to try to communicate that there could be something els...

Re: On love.

Ahhh... nice things being said here! Love feels like a "state" to me -- a state that I can be in -- or a vibration. It's not the kind of love that is based on anything at all, rather it is a euphoric feeling/sense/awareness when judgments and demands and ego are set aside. It is unity and connection...

Re: Is God everywhere or not?

The sage confirmed that night that after we have died we are reincarnated into the family deemed suitable based on how we have conducted ourselves. I guess then if we've been idiots, we are likely to be born within a family not particularly willing or perhaps able instill much further intelligence ...

Re: Is it OK for women to show they're smarter than men?

Why would smart women wish to date men stupider than them? Sometimes that's all there is to choose from. 8) And if the men are at least fun... well... that's worth something. Like a lot of women, I felt like I had to hold back on my full throttle in order not to overwhelm/threaten my male partners....

Re: The Axiom Of Identity *Challenged*

YOUR minds ARE SIMPLE, YOU JUST DONT GET IT. IS THIS THE BEST you CAN DO silence? There could be a lot of reasons people don't respond. Isn't it simple-minded for YOU to think that the ONLY reason is that people have simple minds? THIS IS A PROOF THAT THERE IS A GOD No it's not. That's ridiculous. ...

Re: Who should be denied choice?

Children come under governmental law, and therefore have the right to participate in democratic elections, either directly or through a surrogate committed to their best interests. I don't know what world you're talking about, Bob. Sounds like fantasy la-la-land. Voting is the LAST THING children g...
