A perfect Segway into my favorite C.S. Lewis quote!<quoted text>
You can't. That was my source of my confusion. Believe me, I've tried. You can't pretend something into nonexistence. You can deflect it, but it always circles back around. You insinuated that refusing it somehow kept it from being so. I'm willing to admit that I haven't studied it enough to determine what kind of filters may exist, if any, but I feel fairly confident that one person doesn't have the ability to do it.
(Your Mike Myers/Chopra/Tofy thing, sorry I have no idea what that meant...more evidence for your theory, I guess.)
"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word,'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
Where does religion come from? We all yearn to believe in love, undeniable, unqualified love...for each other for our own existence, and for a creator who loves us without condition or pretext.
Peace out my brothers and sisters.
Wow, the rain has stopped and a giant rainbow is over the top of my mountain! Do you believe in Karma?
