I've been here for so long I have begun to feel like this site is a substitute for the real world.
I read everything and anything until I wear out my eyesight and my wife's patience and I lately have noticed that there are but two types of people posting here:
Those who will believe in spite of evidence and those who believe that belief itself is suspect.
Biologists are coming up everyday with the notion that virtually all behavior and all disease is somehow related to a gene inherent in the human body; sometimes it is treated as a proclivity and other times it is treated as a proscript.
Is all of Science no more than the search for the essential?
If there is no God then there is nothing beyond waking, breathing, doing, sleeping and dying; the doing ranges from the works of genius inventions to the tedium of service to the sluggishness of the congenitally impaired.
All the while, the search for reason leads back to first things.
Does unrequited passion drive us all? The genius looks forward to the future and what could be; the sluggard looks not at all; that leaves the rest.
Do we search because we want to or because we have no choice?
hmmmmmmmm, could be.....
Is this genius?
That sounds like my last date.
Maybe our desires and our feelings drive us.
If there is no God then there is nothing beyond waking, breathing, doing, sleeping and dying;...
That's a giant leap that makes no sense at all.
Of course it does.....amongst a myriad of other options.
Don't go there, I will never give her the remote control!
Sure there is. All of them.
Even the smallest amounts return large rewards. Those that have had faith have seen. I have been blessed many times in my life; some circumstances were beyond belief. Yet, I still struggle with faith at times.
Sure there is. All of them
I take it you've never seen Match Game.......
