Thanks, cleared that up for me.
I stand by that. The gays I know don't want you to be gay, mostly because you're not.
The story you gave about the sailor...that's rape, plain and simple. I'd hardly call that rapist a normal, well adjusted gay man. I'd in fact call him a rapist.
You're missing the point though. Law is largely about enforcement. If you're just a sailor without legal means, the norm is about what you can get away with. Taking chances is the norm.

This might be true...but I have found there's really no need to "induce"
it in any way...It's a completely natural phenomenon.

It's more of a question of unbias awareness eliminating preconceived filters that limit perception.

not that I'm no expert on the subject...I'm strictly speaking from my own experience.

here's a Synchronicity experience for ya...I was thinking about Edgar Allan Poe The Raven, and had just brought up a picture of a crow on my computer...and almost immediately a crow, not ten feet from my window called out five times and flew away...I kid you not...just how it happened.

I might hear a crow call where I live about once a month or so, if I'm lucky...but this was way to much to be a coincidence.

The God of the Bible is THE one who brought ALL things into existence in THE beginning. He could see the end from the beginning when it all started. We may not have the reasoning capacity to understand this.

According to the Bible mankind was made in the image and likeness of the Creator and given dominion over all the earth. Humans are very special to the Creator and we are not just another wild animal creature.

The idea behind that is that God is infinite...without beginning or end. Being infinite he would not be subject to time.

as far as worshiping goes...have you even seen someone who's plane had almost crashed, and they get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground after they land?... At that moment... they realize what a great gift life is.

In essence worshiping God is just like that...getting down on your knees and bowing your head, to show your your deep appreciation for the gift of life.

The Bible foretold what the end will be and the plan of salvation for whosoever would take it was foretold as well.

DId you read that the angels were created to serve God and they look like men. I believe God was speaking to the angels when he first created man.

I used the word 'induce' because we make the conscious decision to go to sleep. lol

Anyways, funny how you brought up the 'crow.' I used the term 'when the crow flies' on one of my poetry called "Temptation."
I know there's a connection here somehow. lol. Resist!

can we be friends? ;-)

Humility and Humiliation...Words so close......If god was even real I would not bow down to a god as vile and filled with hate and violence as the god of the buybull. Your god is a mean nasty bully who if doesnt get his way will stomp you into a pit of fire for eternity...Yea keep that crap ....NOT FOR ME.
