To see is to believe. Go ahead and be skeptical about it. It's not my problem that you can't make it work. Our brain is hardwired to the environment. You are just not aware.

So you're saying that authoritarian claims are ok if they are accompanied by long, pointless rambles?
<quoted text>
Funny, but you didn't demonstrate any "meaningless statistics" nor any "prejudices".
But it's good to know that your opinions aren't "judgmental".
<quoted text>
Let us know when you add something of value to this discussion.
Let me know when you've read what I posted and see the meaning. It's not like I haven't already explained the the method, it's just that apparently you're not what you think you are. Oh, well. I try to show respect but you don't understand it when it's offered. It seems you belong with the suicide bombers, because you think there are rules when there are none. You're.... YOU!

You would have been a fundamentalist but you gamble as if you have nothing to lose. Someday, you'll be used up. Perhaps dying of AIDS in a dark room, perhaps getting killed in some petulant act of defiance, and all without learning that simple truth. No rules, yet not to be trusted to show any kind of personal honor, because you don't understand.

You're a deviant and whether or not you find shame in that, you are and will always be looked upon as one. You step into a punch rather than block it. You respect immorality and not morality. You need medicine but don't make medicines. You're all messed up on the inside, and if it weren't for the anonymity of this forum, you'd be in a straitjacket by now.

Until you see meaning, whether or not you agree;

Authoritarian claims, judgmental behavior and so on and so on.....

No you are just out of the 'loop'
Yeah! Any weenie can play "I've got a secret". Why shouldn't I just assume that you're defending attention starved children?

Let's say that I'm "sort of" in the loop. At a certain psychological level I imagine paranoia, but block it out emotionally. Why shouldn't I just assume that you're just looking in the mirror, and calling it empathy when it only an echo chamber of your own ego and experiences?

God is a nice word to give a face to your fear of your own trivial, helplessness in a very large universe.

Skepticism has prevented me from being duped by "psychics," honesty and integrity has kept me from being one of those psychics.

Since they serve me well, there is no need to buy another person's delusion.

Wow. what an evil joke. Your strokes are in humane. Perhaps you're an example of the necessary evil in this society. The pure capitalistic freedom of the invisible hand that has been proven to be dysfunctional in an economy when encouraged in almost full swing because it causes collective dementia and senility. That's when the age of pure innocence ends. Way to ruin the fountain of youth.

I started with the bible, then I started doing other books. It's almost like magic. I swear it works all the time for me whether it was a fiction or history book then it became anything. Try it it's fun.
It's called 'stichomancy' or what I like to say the magic touch.
very very interesting...even outside of books...some Native Americans are able to hear the Earth speak...not in words, but more in the way of intuitions and symbols... I have experienced this directly, and I must say it is the most amazing thing that I have ever experienced. Believe it or not.

It's okay you don't need to be part of the circuit. When you learn to get rid of that micro-chip on your shoulder, maybe you'll become the mother board like.

I'm not that big of a capitalist. As I remember it, Soviet Communism wasn't killed by us capitalists, and China isn't too pure in its Communism anymore. That leaves a few looney farms like North Korea and Cuba.

What I see is closer to a decision between self-policing Democracy, or a rule by an aristocracy. If the Soviets were a Communist ideal, it would have succeeded or failed based on the ability to self-police. It seems that China is putting us and our democracy to the same test now, and we are spending ourselves into collapse, just as the we did to the Soviets.

Is it all part of a plan? I can't say, but I do know that people are far more interested in instant gratification so I see the aristocrats winning the chess game, but they may pay for it with eventual revolutions.

With that in mind, I'd like to think that the youth should have something to believe in, but expect hard times. They're a'coming!

US is enslaving China and their commie government is okay with that because it gives them power but lately it seems they have come to the realization that labor force is the most valuable asset by giving them more pay. Pay up or shut up.

You have fear of tapping into the unknown.

A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.

Split personality (or even multiple personalities) is a pathology when the person isn't aware of it. During its initial stages it's unhealthy I must admit. But with increased awareness, it can become useful. I constantly ask myself "Did I do that?" lol

Apparently, you're angry at something, but whatever it is, it doesn't have anything to do with evolution or same-sex marriage or anything that people here have been posting about. So what *is* your problem, exactly?

Let's see. The suicide bombers think that their god told them to do something involving killing innocent people. I lack any theistic belief, so I can't use any such justification to do immoral things.

Nope, I don't belong with them.

Because, as all homophobes know, gay people always die of AIDS. Or is just the ones that advocate in favor of same-sex marriage?

Right, that's why I use my real name and city while you post as "anonymous". Which of us appears to be more fearful of being placed in a straitjacket because of their ramblings?

Blah! Blah! Blah!

You don't see fit to defend your lifestyle. You're judging my posts as homophobic and worthy of being having me placed in a straightjacket. No sense of honor among peers. Never will be.

I remain anonymous for many reasons, but I am perfectly aware that the people I fear could trace things through network logs, if it was that important. Other than that, the occasional stalker does concern me but more than anything, I worry about H.R. people profiling me and stifling my political voice.

You may like the choice to use your name, but you may find yourself losing opportunities because of it. That's a friendly warning. H.R. people don't like political fanatics, and maybe other things.

...and of course, I've already stated that I consider the Gay agenda to be about pushing Affirmative Action for Gays. Everything has come full circle, but you think that it's all about rules and you deny your own sense of legal vigilantism, so there we are.

No meaning.

The fear that defines most inner feelings, intuition, etc.

Pleasure is something people don't put much planning into, so I don't think it plays much of a part, other than with people who have nothing left but kinky fantasies. If a person is that far gone, they're a bit unstable. Otherwise, Freudian slips may happen, but I think most people tend to bluff and pretend those are deliberate when they happen. It's all about fear.
