IANS, I am waiting at the side of the road waiting for something to go anywhere. You don't pay much attention to what people say because you live in your own little fantasy world.<quoted text>
What makes your world so bitter and pessimistic? Do you ever wonder? Psychology determines philosophy, which in turn feeds back to modify or reinforce the psychology. You may have abandoned a few of the precepts of Christian theology and changed gods, but you still bear the scars of your Christian education, which principle message includes a sense of detachment from our common world, a general disrespect for humanity, and a redirection of your focus from the here and now to pie in the sky there and then. You're living your life waiting at a bus stop to heaven while cursing at the happiest pedestrians passing by.
Why don't you try constructive comments to the unbelievers? You might feel better about yourself, and we probably will feel better about you as well.
Oh, I am Mr. Happy. I'm as happy as a pig in shit if I'm out of cigarettes and I find a butt still burning on the side of the road. Would hate to find one with no lighter.
My humility didn't come from my religious training as a child. It came from marching within a group of thousands under the direction of some redneck with no education. With a PhD candidate marching right next to me. Plus my limited math skills understands the relative value of one among billions, and billions, and billions. A lot of people have lived and died.
Your diagnosis is incorrect, Doctor.
Your dreams of your worth and achievements will go "Poof!", Doctor. Then they will forget who and what you were and just fight over any money you left. That will be your true "worth" in this world.
This is a tiny place in a big universe. You have shot your wad puffing yourself up in it.
