“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”

INSTINCT

Now my idea of the meaningless term "instinct" is, that it is merely petrified thought; solidified and made inanimate by habit; thought which was once alive and awake but it become unconscious--walks in its sleep, so to speak.

I believe the term instinct had and has different meanings for different people.

Some people associate the word with intuition, which also applies to humans.

Some people take the word to mean that non-human animals act ONLY by instinct as they are not capable of "rational" thought as are humans.

Words don't have specific meanings. They have the meanings that the individuals apply to the words.

It's possible that the bible myth of Sodom and gomorrah started because a meteor landed on neighboring communities.

It didn't take much to start another myth going when people believed in evil and in turn retribution of a god.

Whenever there was an upheaval in nature, the people were primed and ready to believe that a god or gods were displaying anger for some type of bad behavior.

And theologians were busy making sure the myths not only existed, but that they took on new and even more frightening mental proportions.

That a god would destroy portions of the earth because of homosexuality, is one of the most ludicrous tales of stupidity that still lingers in imaginative minds to this day.

Ridiculous blather!

IRREVERENCE

When a thing is sacred to me it is impossible for me to be irreverent toward it. I cannot call to mind a single instance where I have ever been irreverent, except toward the things which were sacred to other people.

JACKASS

Concerning the difference between man and the jackass: some observers hold that there isn't any. But this wrongs the jackass.

Even the new Jesus, who claims there is no more sin, no more devil, no more hell ... is not fair to the religion itself, as he changed the god of Christianity into a real nice guy, when the original Jehovah was a cruel S.O.B. in thought and deed.
Religion grew out of its original nutshell into new diversified nutshells that chances are better than not are no more based on truth than was the first instigated original nutshell created by ignorant ape-like humans with the intelligence of a door knob.

Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt- that region is famous for its salt pillars; they're natural there. How convenient that a fairy tale like that develops, huh?

And you know, when I was a kid, I truly believed a rainbow was a miracle - God's promise to us to never flood the earth again; a rainbow is as natural as a salt pillar.

That a pillar of salt was once a woman should have alerted people that the story was ridiculous ... but many seemed to take it in stride that it was based on truth.

The myth-makers also managed to mess with the rainbow.

Rainbow Legends

In some North Carolina folklore, rainbows were considered a sign of impending calamity. One old tradition holds that a house overarched by a rainbow would experience a disaster in the near future.

People either learned their superstitions from others, or they veered off from others to create a new batch of superstitions.

The Egyptians deified cats as holy, and the Christians vilified the same animal as evil.

Humans are not at all wise, but there are those who keep pretending that wisdom specifically chose to come their way.

During the Persian invasion of 529 B.C.E., the Egyptians' deification of the cat proved their undoing. Knowing of the obsession of the Egyptian people with the divinity of felines, Cambyses II, king of the Persians, made a cat part of the standard issue to each of his soldiers. The Nile-dwellers led by King Psamtik III laid down their spears and bows for fear of harming the cat that each enemy soldier carried, and the Persians conquered the city of Pelusium without shedding a drop of blood.

For the sake of freedom of speech I hope William wins his court case.

I believe that the more he makes a fool of himself with his silly words, the more he works inadvertently in the favor of homosexuals.

How former ‘street kid’ William Whatcott became the ‘deliberately provocative’ spark behind Supreme Court hate-speech ruling

A sexual purist and Christian fundamentalist who regrets his own homosexual conduct during a youthful period of drug use and criminality, Mr. Whatcott’s top court hearing focused on his claim that, in fact, he loves homosexuals, in the Christian sense, and it is only their conduct he denounces as filthy and corrupt.

He does so vigorously, despite many citations and charges, and was even stopped by police the night before his 2011 Supreme Court hearing in Ottawa.

On Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court will announce its decision on whether this zeal reflects a constitutionally protected religious imperative, or a flimsy excuse for hate speech. The ruling, which is expected to revisit a 20-year-old legal definition of hate, could decide the fate of not only Saskatchewan’s human rights law against hate speech, but others around the country, including the federal ban on internet hate speech, known as Section 13.

William puts himself up to be a proficient and KNOWABLE speaker on what offends his god and what his god deems is holy behavior.

To William, no doubt his own behavior is based on the holiest of holy causes.

He's no different than Ink, who now claims that her god allows Atheists to simply die without any penalty.

All theologians such as William and Ink believe they know what pleases and displeases a god.

That type of ridiculous behavior has gone on since the beginning of religion, with no end in sight!

You don't have to go to a university to be a theologian.

A theologian is a person who claims to know what mental state the gods are in ... who they love ... who they hate ... who they will take to bliss in an afterlife ... and who they will disown as evil or just plain rubbish.

Welcome to the club of theologians world-wide who can see the gods with their inner eyes and know the minds of the gods with their intuitions.

How blessed are they that KNOW!!! Sarcasm intended.
