So after 50 years you decided to suspend all critical thinking? You decided that skepticism was abad idea? You thought reason and logic were worthless? What happened, did apparition suddenly appear to you one fine night, and convince you that critical thinking was a bad idea? Yeah, right, you were an Atheist for 50 years, righto!!!!<quoted text>
I was an atheist for almost 50 years and I didn't feel the way you do.
You flat have an ego issue.
Hey, my life is not so pathetic. Like I said, I got where I can help an illustrious individual such as yourself expose himself for the egotistical idiot he is. That's something, isn't it? A David and Goliath thingy?
You developed your ego, loony. I developed my brain.
But they will both turn to dust when we leave.
My ego is well developed, it happen very early on when I realized that is how one succeeds in the field I'm in. I've seen the "melvin milk toast" evaporate like the morning fog, from this business. No one gets to succeed without struttin their stuff.
Yes we will both turn to dust, the difference between us is that I will live on in not only the creativity I leave behind, but in the people I have influenced. They in turn will past that on, and on, and on. In some way I do get to live forever, or at least until the sun blows up!!!!
