80% of the people here are here to indoctrinate. Its a matter of how polite or amusing they are to the rest of us.

Years ago I posted some off-color (anti-Italian) jokes to the Ret-Cop in South Carolina and for a while only I could see my posts.

Can't recall how long it lasted.

My advice to whoever is currently banned:

Try changing your "Name." That has worked for others in the past.

I think there is a perfectly naturalistic explanation for the missing posts.

There is no such thing as a "missing link". All beings are in constant transition.

Typical Buddhistic reasoning. A flawed one. I'll show why considering everything to be in a constant state of change is wrong. Later.

Jesus represents a new trend in reasoning and inner experience among the Semites that're more in tune with the expositions of Vedanta and Buddhism and so what need for believers in Jesus to continue with the old or archaic laws of Judaism? Christians, don't remain stuck with his teachings, go ahead and put them into practice and above all aim for the mystical experiences leading to a certain intermediate degree of being and becoming that he referred to...

I suppose I consider catholics and othe rchristians different. Overall, they are similar, but different in my observations. Both are very much flawed in preparing for that which they can never understand.

So, as stated previously, my choice to believe in what you call God is not a need for existance. I simply like to think there is something of a higher power. Is it like the ants and us and is it an infinite pattern? Hard to tell, I don't understand to that level. Kind of like the following: protons, atoms, cells, grains of sand, planets, suns, galaxies, universe, multi-verses, mega-verse, ulti-verse, etc. Our perview is limited to everything below a partial universe, everything beyond that doesn't exist to many. That we don't know it is there does not mean it does not exist. That we are ignorant to existance of something doesn't make it not exist. My point is that I believe in something that is based on a feeling. You can certainly try to put me in a box, but that box doesn't exist. I don't fall intot he same box as you do. I don't dfall into that box defined by a textbook. I do however refuse to believe the stories that you read. Is it all science? No. If you believe this, explain 1000s of things that science has no answer for. Surely leaving you with the same question.

So, many people nEed tobelieve. Some people choose to believe something. How they believe and what are the keys.

My higher power is based on simple things like: hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, lightning, etx. Those are higher powers or results of higher powers. They may be the results of thing coming to equalibrium, but a much greater power than I or you, regardless of our combined knowledges. Think about all of the things in nature that are more powerful thjan us? Does this bring to mind what the American Indians believed in or others?:)-

Cor:Unless I misunderstood, you seem to acknowledge that god is unknowable.
Idgaf: I stand by this comment and challenge anyone to counter it with other thoughts. I reitierate that God is something that we cannot possibly understand, like the ants don't understand us.

Cor: You also seem to agree that a person can have meaning and purpose in life without god.

Idgaf: I live for me ever single day of my life, so I can tell u that I'm not living for God or Heaven. My actions while I live will speak for my life. My begging forgiveness or praying will only waste precious time.

Cor: So what drives you to believe that a higher power exists?

Idgaf: a feeling ... Dreams ... Choice ...
