Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Instead of helping me with the 'Tide' thing, i mean the poem he wrote, u kept taking the mickey! u know the answer, I know u know it and U know u know it.
What the hell does "sick" mean? I never heard anyone use it in that context!
Sick was a misspelling of sic while moderately intoxicated.

It means to incite a dog to attack, basically.

And no, I don't know the answer any more than you do, Clementine.

U called Eagle a dog? ummmm...I'm tellin'!

How the hell would u have gotten Eagle to attack me? He might be a fanatic but i don't think he's that bad, that he would attack me, would he?

Well, that makes me feel better. Now that I know I'm not alone, I don't feel lonely!

No, it was metaphorical.

And, of course if he does attack I will protect you.

My poem was about risk, inspired by the recent gun debates. If you have a lot to lose, personal property and children, it's not going to matter what the laws are, you have more to lose than someone with nothing. It is also about priorities, what one person is willing to risk in order to secure something else.

I held on until the end ~ followed my gut feeling and received a $197 credit plus a $10 a month loyalty credit!! Sort of like a gift from GOD in my eyes; believing in GOD and writing about GOD while I was waiting gave me $10 a month.. maybe not much in $ value, but a whole heap valuable in 'mean' time :)

I guess my command will be to somebody else to do the protecting.

Now don't go changing the facts to have her wish that I personally protect her with a gun.

I'll be stumped.

<quoted text>Ahhh.... I just realised that you do hear people say "Oh God" where as in your other posting I sort of got the impression you didn't hear it said. Oh Dear God is often said in times of tragedy and in a different way than Oh God in times of excitement and happiness :)
I do hear it, just not frequently.

I hear it from people who I already know are Christians, but to be fair, atheists aren't very common in my area. Interestingly, "God dammit" or some variation is more common than "Oh God" or anything along those lines, which is why I stand by what I said earlier: it has to do with society, not people internally admitting that God is real. A few hundred years ago, many people would actually find mentioning God out of context offensive.

I believe also that tears are a way of expressing our feelings when mere words will not suffice; which is why we can cry for so many different reasons. I also love the emotions of our emotions..
I'm not sure what you mean by the "emotions of our emotions," but besides that, agreed. Emotions are quite amazing. I feel bad for those who shroud their emotions with... anything.

Mmh, I hear god dammit too, and obviously it is a curse, as in asking GOD to damn something, and in respect feels differently than Oh GOD or Oh Dear GOD... do we need to ask GOD to damn something or someone? I don't think so, I at least am happy leaving it in the hands of GOD,'cause HE surely sees and knows that which I surely can't :D)

I spent some time in a psychiatric ward of a hospital, and have already written much about it. It was during the period in Adelaide when one of our news readers Son disappeared. Rob (new reader) kept on with his job, night after night, as Adelaide speculated as to where his Son disappeared to. Some stuff that was written was not nice at all; but he kept on, night after night, putting on a brave face.

It was before home computers, and I searched and searched Encyclopedias to try and work out why some held within evil and others shunned it. There was much on the 3rd ear, the spot where our Baby spot is, and how it could not tolerate fleuro lighting etc etc. They found Richard, his son, 2 weeks after he disappeared, dead after being drugged and raped and tortured ~ and Rob kept on reading the news. I lost a lot of weight, finding this all too much, and ended up in the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Their findings ~ I was very sane, but too caring! They wanted me to harden my heart, so that I could handle that which man(kind) dished out on a daily basis, and of course, had drugs that would dull the senses.

I chose to continue to care, and although I no longer stop eating due to lack of time, it still hurts enough to take away the appetite. We all have emotions, but we have different levels of emotion, and I love my emotion of my emotion!! I guess I mean the level we can take that feeling of exhilaration to, we can have a dull thud to the heart, or we can have the brick whacking it.

I love the whack of a brick to the heart ~ it hurts, no doubts about that, but I also feel the feeling of why it hurts :)

I said "precious" instead of "previous." One letter difference, and they're right next to each other on the keyboard, and since they're both real words there as no spellcheck highlighting. I said "my precious post!" ROFLMAO
