Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

All too many people read the bible. I would say that those who need it the most, the religious, do not read it much at all. If they did, they would leave their vile mainstream homophobic and misogynous religions and reject the genocidal son murdering p**** of a god that they have inherited from the...

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...

Which is as it should be, yeah?

We lay a foundation and hope they build true.
Yep.

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

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. 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 us...

Re: I done infested his thinkin'.

"You are a little late as his peers have now taken over most of his teaching." Nah, I've had 'em for thirteen years: I'm in his bones, in his head. ## "That's a good point, actually." Yep. I agree and see myself as in their essence, but I saw my influence decrease over time in all of my 4 boys. I a...

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 an...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

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 archaic concepts. Let go...and see how much more there is. :lol: I see unearned smu...

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

For me, right now, it's my thirteen year old. Makin' him into a self-responsible, self-directing, human being is just about a full-time job. You are a little late as his peers have now taken over most of his teaching. That does not mean you have lost all influence of course, you always have some wi...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I hear you buddy. A cause is a good way to keep us young and feeling that we are a part of a greater whole. If we are to live on spaceship earth, we should work to protect and purify it. Protectors are cranky as we hate all that would jeopardize that which we love. I would be upset with myself a lot...

Re: "What do you use to prove your point?"

When I can be bothered to: I make appeals to reason, to common sense. That most folks don't wanna reason, and have almost no common sense, is why, nowadays, I mostly can't be bothered. I hear you and that is why I focus on getting better and keep the lurkers in mind more than the obtuse and immune ...

Re: yes: natural law & natural rights exist, are intrinsic to the individual, are not subject to shifty cultural redefin

"There is a moral dimension to reality" Yes, there is. That's what I've been sayin' in threads all over the forum. Some have to be shown how that works. It is all in the delivery. I wish mine was better. I often use a baby experiment link to prove my point. What do you use to prove your point? Rega...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

This paragraph of prose is nothing more than utterly meaningless jibberish. There is nothing more tedious than reading pop mysticism. Dachshund Oh, there is, Dachshund, there is. The pulp truly religious people write. Now that's absolute crap if you ever want to see any. Pop mysticism at least has ...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I'll try to clarify. I'm using the word divine to mean sacred, heavenly, celestial (love, light, and expansion) ... 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...
