You funny girl, LOL!
Nothing to save and less to lose around here.
;-D
I like what you said...
Love the ones your with and hope that if it is the end of it all, then it will be quick and while sleeping.
I do kind of feel sorry, for all those waiting in eager anticipation, of seeing their "sinful and unrepentant" loved ones, burning in a lake of fiery "I told you so".
Somehow spending eternity in joy and bliss, seems a contradiction to the knowledge of others writhing in eternal torture and pain....
Oh hell, slap my hands and shut up my fingers!
Opening a can o worms right there....
LOL.
<3's -n- O's -n- ;-)'s
the older i get the more im unsure of whats before us and whats after. somehow the idea of eternal bliss and eternal torture just seems kinda silly to me now, it just doesnt make sense to me, yeah i know its called faith. but at this point im wondering if its mankind just thinking of ways to make himself feel better. he invents these ideas to put some kind of meaning to the life "he" is living, makes him think hes more important than he really is and that he will go on in this life or the next - "he" will survive.
frankly i wont mind if theres nothing after this life, what i dont know i wont miss. lol

the worse part of feeling the way i do now - is that i really do want to go back to those days of thinking in religion terms, i want to believe again, but im just not sure anymore. yet i like that warm blanket feeling, unfortunately lately im feeling cold and cant seem to find it anymore. too many things in life lately have been making me feel its wishful thinking, like ur pretty much out there in this big ol world by urself, aint nobody gonna save u but urself..
oh well thats life. lol

Yes, yes, yes!
Sweetheart, I feel exactly the same way.

When first discovered Topix , was feeling that I had found a gold mine.
And in a way did.
(Didn't we all?)

So much personal life experience and education being shared freely along with amazing unsung talent and skills....
This was a bibliophiles dream come true.

At that time seeking answers to "The Truth" and insight to others pure, brave and uncensored thoughts.

I've come to the conclusion and would like to think that if there is an omnipotence in this universe;
that it is at the most,
benevolent,
and at the least,
ambivalent.

That works for this little soul/ spirit/ spark.

The events in our world unfolding these days are magnificent.

My hope that if it is the end of times as we know them...

That somehow we can leave behind a richer record of our times on this planet than our ancestors were able to.

That somehow future generations will have the ability to find answers to "our mysteries" easier and helpful to their lifetimes.

Incredible! This is not in the news as a whole. I just happened upon this dangerous situation. I live in Florida and no one has even heard about it. Is there any link between this sinkhole and the Lake Peignoir sinkhole and some woman named Linda Newkirk.

Thanks and yes it's been a nice weekend.
I honestly don't know where I stand on appreciating this information or not.
Hum?
Not to be disrespectful in any way...but I don't see what any one can do to advert disaster of the magnitude you're describing.
There is no where safe to go or hide to stay safe from the apparent inevitable results or end of these happenings.
Why subject ourselves to that kind of fear or panic?
Everyday life is stressful enough without the shadow of absolute helplessness hovering like the sword of Damocles.
JMHO.
Babbling to the room here on OB.
Wishing everyone a good night and nice week ahead.
<3's -n-:-)'s
P.S.
BTW, I've noticed a grey troll trying to mimic my sig in a few other threads.
Please know it's not this girl acting a fool out there.
I get you, and it's a reaction I get from a fair amount of folks. Others want to know everything, and others don't even want to hear the first word. And I have to respect folks wishes, not everyone wants to take the blue pill...
Anyway, my take on keeping abreast on the developments in the world at large; the devil I know is always better than the one I don't. As long as I can remember, whenever I've been chased or scared, or running from something; I couldn't resist the urge to stop and turn around. The panic was in the running, for me.
Another angle for me is this; I haven't watched TV in about 4 years. No Law and Order, no Twilight or Walking Dead, lol. Nothing on TV drama can even come close to what the hale is happening globally on the geological, political, environmental, and tyrannical arenas! I'm riveted, I'm fascinated! I can't look away! lol
As far as being helpless, I don't buy that. I'm a 'do something' type, and have organized a network of folks who once alerted, join folks across the country in calling and emailing elected officials et al, signing petitions, demonstrate, join boycotts, and spread information and awareness. Waking folks up is the largest part of this battle.
I'm also not helpless to know that I should cherish all that is good in my life, to love and live like it is the last day. That's why I've tried to make peace even here with those I haven't gotten along with past. And won't take seriously any 'enemies' I have here now. Hopefully, in 50 years I'll still be living this way.
Most of all, I believe a great deception is coming soon, and the Bible even speaks of it, and says most of the world is fooled.
There are commands to watch, and be aware. I take that seriously.
And I don't want those who would want to know, deceived. If even one person is paying attention to these posts and others I've made on other subjects (like the tyranny represented by the TSA), and does their own research and begins to see behind the veil, then that makes it worth it. I could care less for those who 'laugh at me', as if! My motto is hear me now, believe me later.
It's been CRAZY busy here lately, a lot going on and being built.
I hope you've had a good week.

This is being seen by many professionals as a symptom of Post Glacial Rebound Effect, which has been set in motion by the melting ice, which was set in motion by stupid-ass Dep of Energy (killers) testing nukes in our stratosphere in the early 70s....crazy huh?

Scott sounds like a psychic, listening to this two years after he said it. Links to the raw data under the vids.
This year, an area larger than the size of the U.S melted....4.57 million square miles...this is a snowballing event. The Greenland ice sheet melted in four days in July...

Hello! Nice to 'meet' you! I like the way you think. Exactly. If they tell us the truth the agenda (as in UN Agenda 21, which the U.S signed in '91), is moot, BILLIONS of carbon taxes and LAND GRABS worldwide will all become moot, eh? Yes they're co-opting this geological upheaval alright, but every tyrannical regime has used bad science of it's day, as propoganda, including ours.

You are not alone in wanting a reason to believe, to know a faith is anchored in solid ground. I too, was questioning these things, for a couple of years. I looked into both sides of the dilemma. Then I found this book,
The Case for Faith
Lee Stroebel
The book is chaptered around these questions;

Objection 1: Since Evil and Suffering Exist, A Loving God Cannot
Objection 2: Since Miracles Contradict Science, They Cannot be True
Objection 3: Evolution Explains Life, So God Isn't Needed
Objection 4: God Isn't Worthy if He Kills Innocent Children
Objection 5: It's Offensive to Claim Jesus is the Only Way to God
Objection 6: A Loving God Would Never Torture People in Hell
Objection 7: Church History is Littered with Oppression and Violence
Objection 8: I Still Have Doubts, So I Can't be a Christian

"Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty books and has been interviewed on numerous national TV programs, including ABC, Fox, PBS, and CNN.

Described in the Washington Post as "one of the evangelical community's most popular apologists," Lee shared the Christian Book of the Year award in 2005 for a curriculum he co-authored with Garry Poole about the movie The Passion of the Christ. He also won Gold Medallions for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, and the The Case for a Creator, all of which have been made into documentaries distributed by Lionsgate."

You may want to include it in your considerations. I wish you peace.:-)

Crimony!
http://www.examiner.com/article/sinkhole-52-0...
"Officials have confirmed that the crude oil that had been covering the giant sinkhole in Assumption Parish, LA was from a massive underground formation(s) of crude oil and gas that officials have said they do not know how to stop.

The 1-mile by 3-mile Napoleonville Salt Dome below the sinkhole contains caverns leased by seven oil and gas industry companies that have injected an estimated 500 billion cubic feet of gas and 200 million gallons of crude oil into the dome's caverns."

'...500 billion cubic feet of gas and 200 million gallons of crude oil...'

...and they have now six flaming wells burning off methane now in the area. 1.5 million barrels of this 'gas' is butane. That alone in detonation would be akin to 100 Hiroshima bombs going off. This thing sits at the southern end of the New Madrid, too.

And if all that aint enough, in Napoleonville, 4 miles from the sinkhole, the news is reporting that this guy's tapwater is flammable and burns!

Watch: Man ignites tap water 4 miles from Louisiana sinkhole — It started bubbling after giant hole formed (VIDEO)
http://enenews.com/tv-man-lights-tap-water-fi...

"Pate says after hearing the test results he doesn’t know what to believe, because gas in the water shouldn’t happen..."

"...Chris Piehler with the Department of Environmental Quality says,'Methane producing micro biological activity occurs near shallow aquifers that may not be suitable for drinking water use”
“He just happened to have stuck a well into the water and is pulling water out of the ground in a very natural state and it has methane gas in it'..."

To which Pate replies, "I noticed more bubbles in the water… I mean it wasn’t like that before [the sinkhole]"

Good morning Tink! Thank you, blessings for you and your loved ones as well. I didn't get 'unappreciative' from your post at all.
I believe that we are for the most part, helpless in these events, I mean, who has the money to abandon their home, community, and livelihood to relocate? Who would leave their families, children and grandchildren behind? I think that in the coming economic catastrophe we may well be in much more danger in this big city; and we actually do have the means to relocate out to a rural area, but my grown kids and their families are firmly settled and work here in the city. That means I'm not going anywhere.
But I don't think we're helpless to address how we feel, our everyday peace of mind. I'm finding that being loving, demonstrative, extremely generous, and kind; both to my loved ones, friends and strangers is the strongest position I could take. The more I do it, the better I feel, even in the face of terrifying events. Somehow, in a way I can't explain, it is a 'defense' and I don't feel afraid, at least not in any overwhelming or lasting fashion.
You may have more insight into that than I do, for your life is in care-giving and self-sacrifice.
