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.

Now our Dave lies down to sleep
And prays the church his money to keep
if He should die before He's awake
We know the money his Church shall take.

A solemn evening prayer...

My Vibrator, which brings me to heaven!
Rabbit be thy name!
Till kingdom come!
Thy make me cum!
On earth!
Oh it is heaven!
Give me this daily thrill!
And forgive me my screams!
As I forgive those who sold me dud batteries!
Lead me straight into temptation!
But deliver me from frustration!
For thine is the vibration!
The power and the rotation!
For ever and ever!
Amen or No men!

Yours in Christ
Allah willing
Hare Krishna

Hey God you got a minute?
Oh sure Imhotep wassup?
I have ridiculed you again today
That's okay I'm used to it my son
I knew you'd feel that way
I can only trust atheist you know
Yeah I'm sorry for that
They won't lie to me
I know, if you could work up a prayer that actually did something maybe we could change that
You know , I've told before you that I simply do not have the time. Between Professional sports and gambling I have not a chance. The slot machines alone are killing me
Perhaps you should check with Allah, maybe he could assist
You got to be kidding he just found a new nine-year-old wife yesterday
Cheer up I'll talk to you in a couple of days
Thank God err me Imhotep You know I love you

I'm never gonna understand it if nobody can explain it to me.
Go ahead, take a whirl.
I could sit here for days quoting and explaing scriptures, but, it would be a waste of time, like talking to a brick wall. You already have your mind set on your religion of science or whatever, and your atheist ways. Absolutely nothing I could say would change your mind. God gifted us a book of life, and you don't believe that, so... go on with your trip down the path of conscience confusion constipation and speculation.

You see, all lint is something unique to each person, in that it happens to some people and they are aware, and some are not so aware of it, not in any major way.

Well, don't wait for me to show, as I probably will be occupied with other things.
I am just as ignorant of what comes next as you. A lot less ignorant on other things, granted, but as to what is over the distant horizon I glimpsed, I can't say what is and what ain't, except for the fact the termination of my existence as a conscious entity will not occur. It would nice just drifting off to eternal nothing, but it don't work that way. As I pointed out before, I checked out of this existence, and the physical likelihood of death was very, very high, but not once did it occur to me that the consciousness I was, and which changed a couple of times as I went further from this place, was about to end. As I pointed out before, I was atheist, very material and technically oriented, but such thoughts never crossed my consciousnesses. Was quite the surprise after coming back and my physical brain reviewed the experience. That physical brain is not what really runs you, or in control of you. It is a hazy filter you peer out and work with in this particular environment.
Or something like that.
The possession? That was a huge surprise and most troubling for a while. I've always had this thing ingrained in me about each of us having a right to exist here on our own. I felt I was a threat to my progeny. But this was afterwards. In my desperation to continue materially after realizing this ended, I knew I could share existence here with others. I scanned those around me, but had to make a qualitative decision. Luckily none of them had a life I wanted to get involved in. Except for a bonded couple. I couldn't do it. That was the only time when a bright light appeared. That is when I headed for the spiritual recycling bin.
Timmy, me boy, you are working on false assumptions with your physical brain. In this manifestation it is like a light bulb projecting for you to see, and it reacts to what bounces back. All you will see with it is here. You won't see the greater reality. Don't assume too much with it.
Existence is feeling and emotion more than cold hard logic. Enjoy it.
Do you know why they're called near death experiences?

Failure is hard to deal with.
As expected there was no forum laughter -the silence was literally deafening.
Maybe you'll have better luck in the forum that appreciates you and you're personal clown god.
Have you haunted

There is exciting godlike humor in there- angel approved!

It happened again yesterday, the mysterious deflection of weather from this little town.
For a half hour I watched a severe T-storm approach with lots of hail in it on radar. But instead of it diverting about 5 miles out, this time it just kind of fizzled out while it passed over and started again after it did. I watched the radar and it was still organized up to a mile away, very red and violet. Then we just got a few drops as it passed over, where it resumed its intensity. It was a large storm.
Is it my deodorant?
I do appreciate not having the wicked hail storms, though.
It's you dave. Accept your calling as the rainman.

Hey God you remember our last conversation about purgatory
Of course Imhotep, you are my favorite son
What are my chances
Zero
What about hell
Satan flatly refused to accept you
Why didn't I live up to his standards
I told you Her not His
it was that damned pot you created, My ears are ringing
I knew you would love me for that It's one of my favorite creations
It's too bad only the wise use it
I plan to change that a few years
Anything you can share with me
Allah has claimed his hashish territory
Wow Anything else for yer bud
Buddha is trying to take the hard stuff heroin morphine territory from Allah
That's a shame
It saddens me Imhotep
Cheer up have a beer
How would that look in heaven I do have my image you know
Right, forgive me
It's a done deal U R my BFF
What about these posters, I know they embarrassed you
I must forgive them
Why you're a nice guy there's no need
It was my fault. I had a little problem with the DNA one day. My teams working on the final solution
That is good news
Aisle seven, slot machine number three, Cleopatra, wait for the third spin bet Max . I love you Imhotep
You have made my evening thanks
