Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

A woman of the Christian faith (according to what she says) just can't wait to die and be with Jesus.

Other people of the world are too evil for her to accept.

Yet for every ache and pain, she rushes off to the doctors for assistance with problems concerning her health.

She is aware of the fact that I'm not a Christian ... so my guess is, I am also perceived by her as "evil."

And that's just fine with me.

The only thing religion has done for her, is make her want to die. I refer to her mindset of wanting to die, as the "Mother Teresa syndrome."

I don't believe any divine or evil voice of a god or a devil is guiding me, if that's what you mean.

I talk to myself and am guided by what I answer back to myself.

If you were raised by dogs, as was Oxana Malaya for the first six years of her life ... you would have memories only of dog-language.

Apparently it was eight years altogether.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

Oxana is a feral child, one of only about 100 known in the world. The story goes that, when she was three, her indifferent, alcoholic parents left her outside one night and she crawled into a hovel where they kept dogs.

No one came to look for her or even seemed to notice she was gone, so she stayed where there was warmth and food - raw meat and scraps - forgetting what it was to be human, losing what toddler's language she had and learning to survive as a member of the pack.

A shameful five years later, a neighbour reported a child living with animals. When she was found, at the age of eight in 1991, Oxana could hardly speak and ran around on all fours barking, mimicking her carers.

Though she must have seen humans at a distance, and seems occasionally to have entered the family house like a stray, they were no longer her species: all meaningful life was contained in a kennel.

From the book The True Believer Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements by Eric Hoffer. Published 1951.

The fiercest fanatics are often selfish people who were forced, by innate shortcomings or external circumstances, to lose faith in their own selves. They separate the excellent instrument of selfishness from their ineffectual selves and attach it to the service of some holy cause. And though it be a faith of love and humility they adopt, they can be neither loving nor humble.

Are the brain cells programmed to do our thinking for us??? If they are then the power is theirs ... not ours.
When the brain cells in humans completely die, the power will be gone, as is what occurs with other animals.
If there is more to live, of that I am not aware, and neither are others, except for what they created in their imaginations.
That is my perception.
June, about 2-3 weeks ago I went into insulin shock (dangerously low blood sugar). I can't go below 75 w/o feeling very ill, and somehow my sugar dropped to 20. My husband literally saved my life; I have one of those "help I've fallen" machines and he quickly pressed the button. He said I was unconscious for about a half hour. I always wondered how being unconscious felt - it was nothing more than a dreamless sleep. I can't help but wonder if death is like that - simply nothingness. Why would a god want to keep trillions of souls in some type of afterlife anyway? What could possibly be the purpose?

You believe that death is the end. That there is no hope for anything but the bugs chewing on you. That may not be hatred but it sure is hopelessness. I won't go there with you. For me life is a journey toward a more perfect existance forever.

Being unconscientious and death are two different things.

Sorry for your suffering Sherlayne.

When you slipped into unconsciousness, your heart was still pumping and in turn giving the brain-cells all the necessary life-sustaining elements. It's a different issue than when the heart stops pumping blood and the brain-cells go into states of shocked-hibernation. It is those occasions when people have what is termed now as death experiences where they "see the light." My guess is, in such cases, the cells are simply traumatized and are sending off electrical signals in their distress.

As for you wondering why a god would want to keep souls in some type of afterlife ... my guess is a god wouldn't even want to keep souls alive in THIS life, and that's why I no longer believe in a god or religion of any brain-"brand."

From my perspective, all religion is a trick of the mind, and the tricks were played on us by theologians that didn't know anything more than their fantasy allowed.

There was a reason and is a reason that preachers of religion teach followers to "keep the faith."

If people ask questions, religion falls apart comparable to a house created from playing cards.

"Keep the faith" means "Don't ask questions, and we won't find it necessary to tell you that we don't have answers ... we just have beliefs, and our beliefs are based on nothing but fantasy."

They are teaching you to keep faith in THEIR fantasies.

I hope that death is the end of suffering.

You lust for eternal bliss for yourself and are content to believe that others DESERVE suffering in a hell and that Jehovah has every right to punish those other evil souls.

You are a despicable self-ingratiating creature.

Ink figures people have a choice. I agree.

Ink chooses to believe that I am a fool, and she is wise.

I choose to believe that humans are all fools and that includes me.

Belief is all about choice.

I don't want any more babies to be born into life on earth to starve to death.

Apparently the gods are comfortable with that issue.

I don't want to visit or be in any long-term care facility, where people are begging to die, are suffering hour after hour, day after day, year after year.

Apparently the gods are comfortable with that issue.

Yes, I want suffering to end, but it won't end until death, and then I hope that death will end the suffering.

If that is evil ... then so be it. I don't mind being evil.

Ink believes I am terrible and morbid for not wanting life to continue after death as her religion teaches is truth.

But guess WHERE Ink believes her precious self is going???

You only get ONE guess ... YES ... you are right. She's going to eternal bliss.

I wonder how she would like the thought of her "righteous" self burning in hell, or being deprived of Jehovah's love for eternity.

She doesn't want to go there in her thoughts.

Religion is sickening!

The words on the cover of the bible are deceptive.

They teach that there is a loving god and a devil. But on the cover of the bible it states only the word "holy."

If hell exists, hell and evil should have equal rights.

The cover on the bible should state "The holy AND evil bible."

That would be fair PLAY!

That way Ink could choose holiness and heaven, and I could choose evil and hell.

Wouldn't THAT be fun for you Ink???

Silly fool!!!
