I'm not defending Catcher. He got the wrong idea too. If Catcher wants to argue with me about it, he can.

But building a grand and wondrous Heaven , filled with joy, comfort, happiness, and delight for those who are directly the opposite of you is LOVE. Those who love God , and those who warn others about disobeying God end up in Heaven eternally, never to suffer, never to be pestered with the fury you carry with you on a daily basis.
You and your hatred gets cast into an eternal lake of fire because your mind and heart is steaming with hatred of God and Christians.
Those who hate themselves and others ( like you) end up in Hell. So it all makes sense when you think about it. You just want to disobey and defy God's commands and this forum allows you to rant and rave about it all. You know I'm right and that you have CHOSEN to go to Hell of your own will, and this makes you very mad.
You lose in a big way, not only now, but forever.
I know this question has been asked to death, but I'd like to hear (see) your version. If heaven is a perfect realm, as you suggest, why would Lucifer and one third of the angels rebel? How does one become a malcontent in heaven?

Actually you would have to choose to argue with him as you did with me. I apologized and in response to that apology you were snide and insulting. The apology should have been the end of it, but that is normally when two men of character are dealing with each other. I am dealing with you

Like i told you REPEATEDLY last time, I am not discussing the Bible with you. You already demonstrating your ignorance and your refusal to change positions even when presented facts to the contrary the first time we had a biblical discussion. There won't be another.

You just want my attention. You probably figure this is your best way of getting it for a prolonged time. That's pretty sad you are still trying.

Hey Skom, been following the last few pages of posts. You seem pretty off today (well, you seem to be in a pissy mood, to be honest). From my interactions with you, that's unusual. Are you ok?

I hope everything is going well for you.

Hey! I'm glad to hear Van is still doing well - I was worried. I've spent a lot of time in Van, but this was sort of the first trip I've made to San Fran, and it was kind of yucky. Beautiful buildings, lovely vistas, but the streets were dirty, lots of unfortunate homeless, lots of scary people.

I'm in Hong Kong now - the city is booming! It reminds me of Hawaii - well, the plants anyways. It's so insanely crowded here, though! Waaaaaaaaay more than Tokyo. Not a place I want to live.

I'm trying to up the ante here. I can give you more options for things to talk about.

1) Faith as a methodology
2) Defining gods
3) Belief in the conscious versus subconscious mind

Or you could answer those three questions I had about the Bible.

Vancouver was clean, the people upbeat, informed, tolerant. I know, SF (I'm going there twice next month), but I LOVE it with all its warts. It's for real, if you know what I mean. Just look at the major recent issue: public nudity. They enacted a ban on it (the wrong people were going nude, if you know what I mean), by the margin of one vote, 6-5 or something like that.

And---it's stunningly beautiful.

Nah I'm cool Hiding

I actually am laughing while typing most of these

The dynamic on Topix can be quite entertaining as people just can't seem to resist set roles

Catcher just has to jump in any chance he can but can't handle the lead. And Tide still is trying to get me to have a Biblical debate with him despite me making it so clear I am not going to that a child could understand. What else can someone do but laugh?

Sometimes you just play down to the level of your competition. Probably why you and I have meaningful exchanges

Have a good one

I sat in a plane from Toronto at the Vancouver airport for an hour or so on a stopover on a flight to Hawaii in December 1983. Does that count as having been in BC. Since we were above clouds all the way across Canada the Vancouver airport tarmac was the only land I saw on the trip.

Oh, yes, I did get a 5 second glimpse of a mountain peak somewhere as we passed over the Rockies.

The 5 second glimpse does not rise to the level for having been there.

Within a few weeks of being separated from your first wife you started dating your eventual second and then within a few weeks of that ending met and ending up dating your eventual third wife? Wow. Now granted some people do not like to be alone and will instantly go from one relationship to the next. I dated a girl that when she was dating you you would die for you and always needed to be attached at the hip but the second the relationship was over she would be dating someone else within a week or two and making the same declarations and it would be as if the last guy never existed. I saw this happen at least ten times. But obviously a crazy girl dating just so she can be dating is not the recipe for a long relationship Given the very long period of time you have been with each woman, I would say not only they were obviously solid relationships built on love but that the odds must be beyond calculable for someone to meet the person they are going to marry TWICE within weeks of another marriage ending.
I bring this up only because I am a big believer that God puts people in our lives. Maybe you just got really, really lucky. But maybe some food for thought?
(T) Peace
Well if one wants to draw some sort of a meaning or a plan out of the whole thing, perhaps the first two relationships were just stepping stones to bring me to my current wife. I recall back in the 60s or 70s, perhaps in the book Future Shock, it was predicted that people of the future (based on that time) would go through several marriages during their lives as their circumstances changed. Perhaps I subconsciously absorbed that info, and somehow programmed myself to make it happen.

I would however tend to suggest it was just the lack of maturity at the time of the first marriage with no prior history of relationships with women, as my first wife was my first real girlfriend, other than taking a couple girls to dances in high school. I am a sticker personally, as both of my first two relationships broke off initiated by the woman, and had they not done that, I would likely have stayed. Kind of the effect of being raised in a family of long successful marriages, with my parents reaching a couple months short of 58 years when my father died, and both sets of grandparents married well over 50 years.

I think I look at it as my life has been a very turbulent flight but the landing seems to have gone smoothly and it is looking good that we will arrive safely at the terminal with no further misfortunes (actually I just made that up now off the top of my head, but it is probably close to what might make some sort of sense).

I don't know whether the ban was the groin area or what.

Maybe our default is now the naked breasts.

I think it's an appropriate (and aesthetically considerate) compromise.
