A sailor goes to the medical officer asking for a discharge based on the fact that he was gay. The medical officer asked, "How do you know you're gay?" The sailor replied, "Well ... I've had sex with another man" The MO responded with, "Can you tell me how many times you've had sex with men?" The sailor said, "Five times".
The MO said, "Don't worry about it. I did it at least fifty times before I figured out I didn't like it"
Apropro, I got rid of a very pesky recruiter in High School but telling him I was "tending towards" gay.(I even had a girlfriend at the time - not that the recruiters were bright enough to realize that). It worked, no more phone calls. I dont recollect which service branch it was though - probably air force.(Should of told him I was Jewish - in retrospect that is even worse for the Air Force).

JOEL----HUGH, I didn't EAT that.

Hugh--- Half of your life is gone as a result of not eating fish. The same for the fellows but their reasons for not eating it are different from yours. I believe that they are allergic to the fish and so would not eat. They specialize in eating crab backs.

Hugh,
You said that the God that you worship is all good.
So, what is the source of evil?
Is there anything beyond good and evil?
How did this God of yours create energy, matter and consciousness from nothing so as to create the cosmos?
How will this energy, natter and consciousness be dissolved back into nothing at the end?
Joel---You said that the God that you worship is all good.

Hugh---- Correct and in Him is NO unrighteousness.

Joel----So, what is the source of evil?

Hugh---- The answer is not black and white. It also depends on your definition of evil. Tell me what is your definition of evil and I shall be in a better position to answer your question. Note, I shall answer it.

You're a pervert, my dear Hugh.

You're obsessed with sex.

JOEL: Good and bad are not 2 different things since then the valid question can be asked what is the causal connection between good and bad.

So, bad is just a deformation of good.

To pervert the truth (good), the capacity for perverting the truth has to exist as an innate aspect of the self-existent system, otherwise good cannot be twisted and made bad nor will bad be capable of getting converted into good.

The self-existent system referred to above is holistic.

Good? Anything that helps in the growth of consciousness and concomitantly it could also mean karma by which harm (in the form of injustice, persecution, murder, theft, slander, jealousy, hatred, fanaticism, greed, rage and other ills) is not inflicted on any one, not even on animals, plants and birds or soil, water and air.

Good is just an aspect of a duality of good and bad and so like light and shadow it is evident that where there is good there also exists bad as the deformation of good.

Thus, if your God is all good then the nature of your God remains incomplete and his existence is one of perpetual struggle with the forces of bad that're causally separate from the system which is illogical.

The transcendent is above the dual aspects of good and bad which then places the transcendental realms above the station of your good God.

So, what is the source of evil (bad) in your belief system?

Good, bad and transcendent are the triple interconvertible aspects of one self-existent system.

I've been a fan of his since the "Win Ben Stein's Money" show.

Google these two clips.

"I'm fxckng Matt Damon"
and

"I'm fxcnking Ben Affleck"

How do we know Jimmy didn't dump Sarah Silverman??

She's pretty funny too, most of the time.

At an event the night before Paris Hilton was to go to jail - with Paris in attendance - Sarah says:

"They were going to paint the jail bars to look like penises to make Paris feel at home but they didn't want her to break or teeth on them."

I don't know about that. There are many politicians I see on TV that would qualify as funny.

Still, as far as professional comedians currently on TV go, I think Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are tops, though much credit also goes to their writing staffs.

Assume you mean Jimmy Fallen vs Kimmel,

I don't enjoy his whole show but agree he is very talented.

Overall, I still like Letterman and Feruguson. Co.nan at times too.

I have my doubts that Seth Myers will be able to carry the show

Ben Stein. What a tool. Lost all respect for him after he came out with his intelligent design "documentary" "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed".

Hugh--- It seems to me that you have crossed over onto the wrong side.

Joel---You're obsessed with sex.

Hugh--- I KNOW but it is the normal type. Previously, I asked you how were things at your end and in my mind I did not get a response. Do so now, please.

Science cannot answer questions on right, wrong, transcendent, love, sadness, compassion, cruelty, selfishness, selflessness, jealousy, cunning, will, nostalgia, intent, hatred and injustice since all these qualities can only be explained through the consciousness as they're related to consciousness in action and as known science hasn't a clue about consciousness despite its demonstration of the death of mind with the death of neurons....
