Everyone should have a bank account, in fact several.

Investment in the local and international markets can be made through banks.

The added benefit of being a big investor in banks like Chase Manhattan, Goldman Sachs, ICICI, Bank of Tokyo, ANZ, Deutsche Bank and others is easy access to platinum, gold and Forex. I buy substantial amounts of precious metals and all my foreign currency only through banks especially the foreign ones or through ICICI.

I don't trust private brokers who're fronts for underworld for certain reasons. I've had bad experiences with them including blackmail and threats when huge amounts are involved....

A big investor in banks can garner several benefits from the banks that would not have been available otherwise and banks here help big time investors to conceal huge amounts of wealth so that it does not attract undue attention from tax authorities.

At a deeper level, however, there's a mutual understanding between the higher ups in elite banking circles, politicians and IT officials and so the rich clients benefit....

According to the late Francisco Varela, Chilean biologist, philosopher, and neuroscientist, the primary conscious experience, common to all higher vertebrates, is not located in a specific part of the brain, nor can it be identified in terms of specific neural structures. Conscious experience is the manifestation of a particular cognitive process - a transient synchronization of diverse, rhythmically oscillating neural circuits.

I forget you live in a third world country where probably large banks are the best bet to steer clear from corruption. Here, if you want to be "legally" fleeced, then you go through a large bank.

Yes, here, the posh banks, mostly foreign, are almost like 5 star hotels in so many ways.
In your words above I am seeing 3 F's that are important and so let me share my observations.

1. F which stands for FOREIGN, among other things, and P (posh) which underscores its service type.

2. F for FREEDOM from or being relieved of your money via "service charges" when an ATM etc. is used.

3. F for F-ive star hotels where you go to get F-ed or freed from certain conditions via the discharge of stress and anxieties.

Assuming you are rich for the sake of your argument... Are you saying you keep all your money in bank(s)?

Hugh----So pluck out the eyes, stop the ears, plug the nostrils, deaden the senses etc of all yogis.

JOEL COOL DUDE----It would make no difference if the brain and sense organs like nose, ears etc of a yogi were plugged or made inoperational.

Hugh--- Please I am not a believer so make me one by telling the greatest of yogis to confirm your assertion on live television for the entire world to see. The world will have an interest in it. The media would love the revenues generated. The scientists would have an interest. Also, tell the participants to get lawyers to draw up the relevant documents containing all the expectations, declarations including immunity and let all of the yogis sign them, just in case the experiment/confirmation fails.

Much love, Mon.

Joel----This is because when the yogi's energy field with its innate consciousness enters into a state of the higher frequencies of vibration the need for perception or for sensory experience via the physical organs is bypassed and the yogi directly perceives or senses everything in various dimensions through the awakened field that can separate itself rom the organs.
In the ordinary state, the organs like brain, nose, ears, tongue etc serve as the physical instruments of the energy field with its inherent consciousness to act.

HughBe---- Let it be subjected to scientific investigation.

Never mind. I found it.

Stein: "When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. Myers, talking about how great scientists were, I was thinking to myself the last time any of my relatives saw scientists telling them what to do they were telling them to go to the showers to get gassed ... that was horrifying beyond words, and that’s where science—in my opinion, this is just an opinion—that’s where science leads you."

Wow. What a moron.

Scientists were pointing the way to the showers?

I don't get his thinking at all.

Stein is a creationist (of the intelligent design variety). The "documentary" is complaining about how Intelligent Design is not being taught in schools as a viable, alternative scientific theory, alongside evolutionary theory.

From wiki...

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is a 2008 documentary film directed by Nathan Frankowski and hosted by Ben Stein.[2][3] The film contends that the mainstream science establishment suppresses academics who believe they see evidence of intelligent design in nature and who criticize evidence supporting Darwinian evolution and the modern evolutionary synthesis as a "scientific conspiracy to keep God out of the nation's laboratories and classrooms."[4][5] The scientific theory of evolution is portrayed by the film as contributing to fascism, the Holocaust, communism, atheism, and eugenics.[6][7] The film portrays intelligent design as motivated by science, rather than religion, though it does not give a detailed definition of the phrase or attempt to explain it on a scientific level. Other than briefly addressing issues of irreducible complexity, Expelled examines it as a political issue.

3. I challenge your impotent gods to demonstrate their powers.
4.Go quickly and tell them of the challenges.

In fact, your favorite false god claimed that if anyone has even a little bit of faith, they can move mountains. Okay, I have a small rock, given to me by a cute little girl. It used to sit on a bookshelf close to my dinner table until I moved a couple of years ago. Now it is packed away in a box somewhere. If your Jesus was a real God, you could pray and move that stone from the box to my dinner table tonight.
Start praying..

While hares are seen as symbols of fertility, they don't really have a part in the "liturgy" per se. Santa is purely xian, invented for commercial reasons. It was an ad for Coke, IIRC...

Frijoles---Incorrect. Huggy preaches the "Old testament", not torah
HughBe--- Clearly your doctored Torah supports homosexuality. I am here to tell you that the Old Testament does not support it and so I shall cleave to the OT.
Correctly translated, the Torah does not condemn homosexuality. It is only in the erroneous translation used by xians that it appears that the OT says anything against gays.
