Yes I've had that. I wake up from a dream, and go back to sleep and make up a plot.
I've also had the same dreams re-occur exactly. It was a dream about that I was looking out the window and saw the planets orbit around me through that window. I think if I remember correctly, it was Uranus. lol
true story (except for the Uranus part)
I was just about to say...better not ask Freud about that one...lol

How do you know Washington isn't watching you, huh?
Me personally? Can't answer that. But you, you hold no interest in the government. You have nothing that catches their eye, so there is no reason to waste the massive resources that are required for tracking you. It's basic economics and logistics, there are 400 million people in the US, we have maybe a few hundred thousand operatives, but most of them are in other countries tracking dangerous threats. You are akin to the ant in an anti hill.

She will never agree to that. She controls her own dreams by playing REM in her head over and over "losing my religion"

No, mythology is filling in the gaps of knowledge with fantasies and imaginary creatures.

These men were direct disciples of Christ, while Mark and Luke were not.
Hearsay for Tacitus and Pliny the young(son or relatives of Pliny the elder), how?
Where you there?
I only agree with Bart Ehrman's works on archaelogy, not on the gospel.
Dr. Ehrman is not the only one saying this, I don't think he is even the first.

Keep denying the fact that we use symbols everyday. It just evolved into LOGOS.

Iconography is using symbols for recognition of real world objects, places, people, and things. Mythology is filling in gaps of knowledge. Two different things entirely. Do you have just one braincell that isn't high on drugs?

But we weren't sailing ships back then .... well, we weren't doing much but climbing trees and flinging pooh at things we didn't like back then either.
