Yes, it is. Sorry. That's what I see.

Besides, what's the alternative? Move to Mexico like you did? No thanks.
Your alternative appear to be to fight it, accept it, or leave it.

I think fighting is in vain.

I chose not to accept it for a variety of reasons that might not pertain to you. Perhaps staying put would be better for you. America might not be too bad if you're conservative. You might get what you want, although if you do, I'll bet you won't want it after you get it.

And if you choose to leave, Mexico is only one option. I'm well satisfied with it, but you might not be.

I hear that Ecuador, Thailand and Chile are decent places to live as well, although I have no first hand knowledge. I've also heard good things about Belize and Costa Rica. Europe is pricier than any of these.

Keep waiting.
Why would she get involved? The Dimwit has begged for the insults. He has done everything in his power to start them and perpetuate them. He works overtime to keep them coming.
Did he not see what happened between me and G_O_ng about his head up his girlfriend's ass. That was contrition enough for me, wasn't it? On that basis of that alone, and nothing else at all, I chose to bury the hatchee tiniest hint of contrition, he has actually escalated his offensive.
How should I deal with that? And why should Happy Lesbo object?
Nobody needs to feel sorry for that piece of garbage. He deserves every single word of abuse he gets.
LoL...ppl know you are losing...and badly Taint. His point was HLs hypocrisy not that I need the guy i am making as ass out of to take it easy on me! just tell me if now "doctor" if you understand prolonged opiate use leads to Physical Addiction?

<quoted text>And I definitely believe you. I mean the God whom you made certain ppl know you dont believe in and that you called nasty and a SOB suddenly is the source of genuine curiosity for you. What did you say you did again for a living? oops.....:)
Again, you are being agressive and certainly not friendly.

But that's ok, I'll try to explain.

Yes. The god I have been hearing about, especially in the OT, is indeed depicted as nasty and a SOB. Some try to explain that one way, some another way. But my conclusion is that this being, who Christians (and Jews) believes is real, is not nice. Again, I don't think he/she exists, I'm saying that the supposed being is not nice.

Jesus on the other hand is a different story. I can't say definitively whether the man Jesus, the person, existed or not. Maybe he did. If he did, there's no question he was a very, very good person and serves as a model, or a guide, for goodness in others. I tip my hat to Jesus' teachings, as I understand them.(But again, I am a nonbeliever in anything supernatural, so I reject the notion of Jesus as a god, the resurrection, any of that.)

And by the way, I am no more a nonbeliever in the OT or the Christian god than I am of the gods of other cultures and religions. I'm no expert on Greek and Roman gods, or the Mayan or Inca or Toltec or Scandinavian gods, but I reject those too while having a curiosity about the myths and the theories of the believers.

What I don't understand is why you object when I say I have a curiosity about religious beliefs. I kick myself to this day that I didn't take Philosophy of Religion, which was offered in my undergraduate school.

What I do for a living is one thing. My venture into Topix has nothing to do with it--it satisfies a whole different part of my intellect and curiosity. I try to separate the two, except when the legal field comes into the discussion; then, I can't help reverting to my professional side.

I hope this makes some sense to you.

<quoted text>Yeah we would probably not be aware it happened. But since right now you can think and act for yourself, is that something you would want? You are capable of considering it now since your mind is free. would the tradeoff be worth it? Would you prefer to be a mindless robot? The question isnt could God do it or would we know after but rather would it be worth taking all the real meaning and individuality and personalities that makes us unique out of life? What would be the point? Dont you prefer to be able to make your own choices?
I'm not sure we'd become "mindless robots". This is a concept that really defies conceptualizing in some aspects. For instance, those people we discussed that are compelled to do something, either by an obsession, or those that have no restraint of conscience(uninhibited free will?), are often found to be relatively normal people in many respects(they don't all become killers, rapists, arsonists etc...). Oft times they live in society with relatively few problems.

I think the point, is that to talk about an absence of freewill, and then make declarations about what that would mean or imply as far as affecting the lives of humans is all conjecture, from both you and myself.

Sure, it can be discussed, but I don't think it can be fully explored since we are in possession of a will.

As limited or unfettered in whatever circumstance it may be.

Edit Scaritual...put it this way. What if someone were to come up behind you and shoot you in the head? You would just be dead. You wouldnt know you were dead or that someone took everything of meaning from you. Would that be all right since you wouldnt know it happened?
Is that what you perceive or conceptualize no free will to be manifested as?

Interesting.
