Re: How To Tell Right From Wrong

Gustav, there were no "trigger words" that brought about my questions... and I think they're reasonable questions to ask of someone who presents himself as you appear to, and who says the things you have. You've assessed other people... so won't you show the courtesy of answering these questions abo...

Re: The Most Ridiculous Headline of the Day

having the balls to speak his own mind, to say what he means and to mean what he says. I'm not so sure it's "balls"... rather than some sort of mental dysfunction. A lot of raving maniacs speak their minds and have little self-control. Most of them don't have the means to ascend to having a worldwi...

Re: Before The Flood

Thanks Lacewing! That sounds way cool! I wish I could find a shape like that! Garage sale Friday, Sat and Sun...maybe something cool like that will turn up! I'm glad it doesn't sound too hokey. I figured your "style" would be able to raise anything to a higher level! :D And I was thinking that you ...

Re: How To Tell Right From Wrong

Gustav, your statements seem to indicate that you think you have figured things out, in general, to a more accurate degree than those who see differently than you do. Correct? That you think you are somehow able to assess other people better than they know themselves. Correct? That you perceive that...

Re: Before The Flood

Wow... some awesome artwork/claywork here!! AS: You mentioned wanting a different shape on which to paint. Perhaps you've already thought of this one... but the idea of a large keyhole popped into my head. It would provide a fairly significant area for the image... while giving the sense of looking ...

Re: How To Tell Right From Wrong

Again, there is only one way to tell right from wrong, Revelation 17:17: "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled." Blah, blah, blah, Revelation 17:17, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Let's see...

Re: Energy: Its characteristics and boundaries

You are not very bright, that's why you come here to ask subfundemental questions, that any child could answer, ergo you are mentally under a child's mentallity, in certain areas. Oh boy... an "assessment" from the one person on this site who makes the most ignorant attacks I've ever seen. It's not...

Re: Energy: Its characteristics and boundaries

You have a very foolish view of life You don't know what my view of life is... so you're an arrogant fool to suggest that you do. what you learn in school are from the best and brightest of minds's words that are written in books, Learning patterns and repetition and what is supposedly "known" and ...

Re: Evidence of God.

Just asking that if someone is going to state that its my own fantasy that they would front up and state the parts they believe i have 'fantasised'. I explained rather at length as to why I don't think there are specific meanings to anything (that it's ALL made-up by us)... and why I don't think an...

Re: How To Tell Right From Wrong

Patience, patience: in time many interesting things will be brought out. Oh no... another Great One bringing messages from afar... that we must wait for the revelation of. I've heard it before, Gustav... (God, how many times?)... and it's too melodramatic... and always empty. I don't know who you t...

Re: Evidence of God.

Is it any less cruel to deprive people their livelihood because of their religious beliefs? Indeed, the pendulum has swung the other way. I can see that... and I do think things are getting a bit tough for theists. Again, I go back to, we have to stop telling each other how to be. It's just too dis...

Re: Evidence of God.

I agree, your response was thoughtful respectful and honest. However it was very safe as most of your posts are, Safe? Hardly. I put myself out there for all kinds of snickering and ridicule. And if you could see some of the threats that have come my way for simply speaking of how I see things... i...

Re: Evidence of God.

Nothing gives me greater comfort than knowing God's presence in my life is my life. I think that's beautiful. Truly. When critics compare God to fairies or a flying spaghetti monster, there is little I can do but laugh at their ignorance. I think they simply do not use the same framework that you d...

Re: Energy: Its characteristics and boundaries

What kind of hole of a country do you live in, if you did not have physics in school, which I very much doubt, so I say you lie! It's the truth that I don't remember having physics, but I honestly don't think I was even signed up for anything like that. I was getting shuffled around a bit and I was...
