Annie, do you mind if I ask what WINLAC is? I looked it up on google one other day when it was mentioned here, and I got a lot of hits but none of the ones I looked at seem to fit with the comments I see here about it. I am assuming it is to do with some other discussion site.
Here ya go Boots...

And what about the phone calls that never come when you need one .
As for the other two "examples" I really don't see how they're proof of the existence of God.
See if I take a different road from normally it's because I'm bored of having a routine.
As for songs reminding me of peace , it's somewhat a pavlov effect. You heard that song play once during a peaceful time of your life and repeated playing it to make yourself feel good . it's normal that hearing this song afterwards will bring up peaceful feelings. It's pretty similar to the researches that showed that FORCING YOURSELF to smile actually makes you feel happier.
My wife actually was asked to present a "Laughter Yoga" class to a group at a hospice last week, which she did, and she reports that it went over very well. This is the second time in a couple years that she has been asked to do that at that particular hospice. She has been thinking of starting regular classes, for quite some time, but as yet has not found where and how to do that. Before we married she was conducting a class in "Laughter Yoga" at her Unitarian church that she was attending at that time. People who wanted to participate just arrived a while before the service.

She first got involved in that when she went to classes held by a man who had learned about it, because his wife had cancer and he was trying to find some way of helping her. Whether laughter was involved or not his wife eventually recovered, but a few years later he became ill and died.

However, having participated a couple times when my wife was doing the classes at her church, I found that it is very effective to change your moods and how you generally feel by laughing, even if you have to force yourself to laugh at the beginning.

I even suspect that some of the people on Topix who never have a pleasant thing to say to certain others here, if we were all sitting in a group in a room somewhere and we all started laughing that we would find it very difficult to continue insulting each other, every time the other said something, as happens for many here.

Honestly , to the people who say that people would choose to be gay. Why would someone , in this day and age CHOOSE to be gay?!
Oh yay! I get to NOT have the same rights as the rest of the population , being compared by republitards to pedophiles and dog-humpers , I get to be judged everytime I walk in the street by nasty old biddies and their ilk who NEED to tell me I'll go to hell. And if I'm REAL lucky , I get to be beaten up by guys who are too bloody insecure in their sexuality and need to prove their "virility" by beating a few fags up!
Well said, and I just noticed that you are a fellow Canadian. A person's sexuality should not be an issue to anyone but himself, and whatever person he/she was having a sexual relationship with.

I am reading backwards this morning...that way when all the "stuff" bores me I can quit and still feel as if I caught up.
hugs back atcha...
You know...Deb...despite our differences...I would still walk beside you...because differences do not define us. It is what we have in common that forms friendships.
We forget that sometimes...we let those differences overwhelm us...shape out words...forget that there are warm hearts and caring souls that lie beneath the exterior.
One person's belief should never override that of another. We should seek balance between the two...only through that balance will we find understanding...compassion...e mpathy for each other.
It is only then...at least IMO (I know...I know...not worth the paper that it is written on...at least to no one else)...
...that we can truly love our neighbor...
As you can "see"...I am having one of those "zen" moments! LOL
Okay...

IANS doesn't have any arguements. He even admitted he is only harrassing me because I confronted him for bullying Lucy.
G_O_D, no offense intended, but I am, likely because I have been posting with both you and IANS for quite a long time, though possibly longer with IANS, but I have not particularly followed both of your posts, as my time was taken up by a few particularly unpleasant posters on a few other threads, have not quite figured out what is the issue with you and IANS. I have noticed that you both seem to be pretty much reading from the same book but perhaps are on different pages (bad analogy, I guess, but the best I can come up with without extra brain strain).

I see both of you taking quite a beating at times from some of the rabid fundamentalists here, yet you seem to be arguing with each other too. Of course, your differences do not necessarily have to have anything to do with the topics which you both disagree with believers about.

I am just expressing my curiosity, as I have found IANS has been pretty honest in what he says, and he stated what he thinks, though perhaps a bit harshly at time. I would say the same for you.

Again, you're just in denial of the fact that your bible condones slavery, stoning many different individuals to death, forcing victims to marry their rapists, and so on.

Standing on?
You seem to be squishing it.
Love isn't telling people that you believe they're evil.

If that's what you think love is, no wonder you're alone.

You'd fit right in with the WBC, as I've said before.

Here is a very interesting discussion that I saw a few years back on the 'truth of God' telecast between Pastor Gino Jennings of 'the First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ' in Philadelphia, PA. and Harry Knox of a organization calling themselves 'the right to marry', I would recommend that any who will to take time to listen and view these links as Jennings really bring out the Word of God on homosexuality in a fairly heated debate.

<quoted text>But Billy Graham was not chosen to author any books of the Bible. So your analogy does not compute.
Mother Theresa is Mother Theresa. Her belief is personal and subjective. I can't compare the belief of Mother Theresa with the beliefs of anyone else.
The soul of Mother Theresa will have to answer to YHWH God for the life she lived in her body on earth. So will I, So will everyone, including You.
Does not matter if you believe that or not.
Maybe you mis-interpreted my use of the word "astounded". I'm not surprise at your unbelief. I'm astounded at the level of your hopelessness seeing you were once a Christian.
But then again, that is [you].
I see it as a little sad, that you perceive someone that doesn't believe there is a God as having levels of hopelessness. I do not feel hopeless at all. In fact I am relatively very hopeful perhaps more so than I was any other time in my life including the time that I was a believer and thought that there was life after death, etc.

Perhaps you see hopelessness in me because you are seeing through a veil of hopelessness yourself. I am not saying that is the case, just throwing it out as a possibility, but I do tend to get kind of a negative vibes coming from some of the 'believers' on Topix. It appears by what they say and how they relate to others that they are not happy campers.

You may not have been involved but some of us on this thread were involved with another poster on several other threads, up to 4 years - in my case about 2 1/2 - and that person though expressing how wonderful their life is, on a daily basis, is very obviously a very sad, conflicted person, and that person has really deteriorated in the past several weeks, partly as a result of the interaction that that person has had with others, both on Topix, and with some, off Topix, in real life.

Basically that person went through a long drawn out melt down, which lasted 4 years, but eventually has led to that person has been posting only a handful of posts, and not ever day, whereas before they had posted thousands more posts than any other poster in the same threads, and posted many times a day, almost every day.
