Spent yesterday taking the top end of a V8 appart.... 15 minutes working then an hour sitting in the AC. Hope to get the heads off today and the new stuff back on before the rain starts tonight.
It bring back memories of my dad. I miss him.
My Dad drove steam engines out in the bush ~

https://www.google.com.au/search... (a link to a few pics)

and died about 8 years ago. I still miss hearing him whistle and calling me princess, and that takes me back nearly 50 years in the blink of an eye. I still have the old doll he gave me sitting on my bedside cupboard, and every now and then I lift the little bonnet and smell her hair. That is a real trip down memory lane; I remember still opening the box that she came in, but being a bit of a tom boy, she didn't get played with much.

In fact, I called her 'Yellow Hair' and she was known that for the first 40 years of her life, and I changed it to Angel Hair. It took me a few years to write my journals, G, but they are like running up and down the memories of life and now, will not be forgotten.

Missing someone is a good feeling ~ let your heart grab hold of that feeling and feel the hurt of love, and that feeling heals the hurt of our own. Well, in my experience, anyway :)

The arguement was over your claim that secular organizations do not donate to the sick and hungry.

A simple, "OH! My mistake!" would have worked.

Instead you once again changed the goal post to avoid admitting your error.

Where in your Bible are the commandments "Thou shalt never admit you're wrong" and "Thou shalt change the subject when proven wrong." ?

If followed their training, then nothing could be done. There is no "who" to blame (unless of course building managers lied or their boss stupidly told them to charge in or some other kind of human error).
The thing is, I don't believe in an all-powerful creator deity. If someone does believe in an all-powerful creator deity, then in the face of human death and misery, they have these options:
1. ignore the obvious impossibilities and never think deeply about what omnipotent + creator means. This is what most religious people do
2. believe in some unknowable divine plan that can't make sense to the non-omniscient; a sort of "who can know the will of Allah?" In this case, the omnipotent creator deity chooses the time and state of everyone's death - in advance, at the creation of the universe.
3. choose to believe in a contradiction as in "I have an all-powerful deity, who created all and knows everything, but ridiculously doesn't have anything to do with misery and suffering."
My point, and the point of view of atheists, isn't that anyone's god is responsible for any person's death and suffering. It's that theists have impossible and unresolved beliefs in their heads that they seem incapable of acknowledging.
We find that quite funny, and childish.
The wind blew the crap flew and I couldn't see for a moment or two.

What a bunch of atheistic garbage you've posted. And the sad thing is you actually believe it and have bought into it hook, line and sinker.

GOoD Day dear sister -- Ahh FB has been a pleasure to get to know so many on a personal level and put faces to names.
To see people join together in love thru any situation whether it be offering prayers or good thoughts without retribution for their personal beliefs.
Truly a huge difference from their to here - although most of us met thru here --
My daughter and I had a touch of a scare last night. We have in a nearby town an outdoor 4 screen movie theatre -- I happen to have a sunroof on my car and near the end of the first movie this huge flash lit the sky and all 4 screens went dark.
Of course my first thought was terrorism, and there were hundreds of cars packed in one area with limited exit points.
Turns out a driver hit a transformer down the road so each vehicle was given free passes -- but when I first saw the flash it was frightening -- my heart truly goes out to war torn countries that live with that constant fear.
TLC - Judy
Glad to hear you are safe and sound ~ I remember seeing a kindergarten in one of those war turn countries, and as the planes roared over the top of the kids in their classes, they were raising their arms up and yelling, as if in defiance of what was going on around them. Perhaps a defiant stance is preferable to being scared to the point of not being able to act to defend one's family..... war is definitely not a pretty sight, and they are planning bigger and better wars, as we know, and there's not much we can do about it.

Off to the movies with my Sister today to see the Lone Ranger, didn't make it yesterday but hoping it's a good movie :)

See your words soon, Cyber Sister Granny, and it is always a pleasure running into your words!! xx

"The Economist estimates that 57% of the church's U.S. spending went to Catholic health care networks, with an additional 28% to colleges, 6% to day-to-day operations at local parishes and dioceses, and 2.7% to national charities.
......
So;

57% went to health care for the Pope, Cardinals, priests and other employees...no charity there.

28% to support Bible Colleges that they rake in money from... no charity there.

6% to pay for the local catholic church exspenses (not much compared to the Vatican and again NOT charity.

Which leave 2.7% to national charities.

Christ! I donate more than that! 2.7% isn't even tithing!

The RCC is the biggest organized crime syndicate on the planet. A 1700 year old con game for the mindless masses.

What does your god do with all of the money that it collects each week? You don't suppose that the loot isn't all getting to it, do you?
If we stipulate that it exists for a moment, then we have to say that your god does let children starve. And get leukemia, And accidentally shoot themselves with handguns. It doesn't lift a divine finger to help.
My GOD has money? That's surprising to read.

Hi Jute.

Yep I've been keeping up with the Tigers. I switched from cable to directv so I can see all of their games. They won again today against Cleveland. Don't see anyone catching them in their division.

That truly was very sad to see those firefighters lost. My heart goes out to the families.

Aw, we all have somebody we miss. After the death of her mom (and neatest friend in the whole wife world), Mrs RR had an epiphany, she said "I'll never get over this, all I can do is learn how to get used to it."
She is 100% correct.
If you feel like crying, here ya go.....
http://youtu.be/TuE1XJ_uqOs
Mrs RR was so right!
… and that was a nice thought you passed on to Duane. Life has taught me too much about losing loved ones, and I just think of what Jesus said...“let the dead bury the dead”- my translation ='keep walking, don't look back, and follow me'.
... this was my to my dad's memory.

" You made me laugh you made me cry
and you were cruel and also kind
a paradox of arms outstretched
to hold a world you longed to reach
a man who loved mum like an angel
a warrior true from every angle
your discipline was in the plan
of raising me as best you can
an orphan from the depths of hell
you grew so tall and strong as well
practicing every word you preached
playing with children in the street
you exceeded all the odds
the birth which gave you none to hold,
we laughed we cried we carried on
touched by each others love so strong
you made me what I am today
a warrior true in every way
no mirrors to build ego's pride
you saw yourself within my eyes.
too much alike so much the same
you molded me within the flame
Projected by... a Father's Love."

I think Jesus existed and that the Gospel of Mark gives a reasonably accurate idea of his life and teaching.
I see no reason to believe in all the magic and 'pomp and circumstance' added later.
IMHO, if one needs all the magical crap of religion to follow the teachings of Jesus (a rarity in and of itself) then they are missing the whole point of what Jesus taught in Mark.
*** The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have verses 9–20. NIV
Mark 16:9-11
[ they needed Mary's account to prove it.]

" When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it."

Believe it or not... I have seen him! You my dear friend know the rest. I might just spook you too if you remember me?
~~ hugs ~~ and no... they were not married then. They only kissed.

Oh, ok. I have no issues with that, and I respect your well thought out and well researched views on spirituality.
Thank you.

I will be the first to admit I could be wrong.
Until I build a time machine, I won't say "I know." Nor will i let anyone else get away with such a claim....unless they let me use their time machine.
