Cognition of everything is in the brain.

Physiology tells us about sadness and its symptoms? This is news to me.(smiles)

So, what is sadness according to physiology?

Why do we feel a dullness, constriction and painful sensation in the middle of the chest region (and not in any other part of the body) when we're sad, depressed or sorrowful?

Huh?

christianity is a failed moral system. You are correct I reject the christian moral set.

You have filthy morals, even less ethical than the christian set. I certainly do reject your morals.

now about my question?

explain why it is that a god would reveal himself to an empty vessel such as yourself, and not to moral persons?

Ya, I know. Christmas is celebrated around the world. Yup, the whole world has accepted that we celebrate Jesus' birthday on Dec 25th.
Most of the world doesn't care about Jesus.

You should come to see it in Mexico, but you'd better hurry if you do. It's still a Christian holiday here, although not for long. When I got here 3+ years ago, there were no signs of the pagan ice gods yet - no trees, no Christmas lights, and no Santa. That's been changing ever since they opened up a Wal-Mart. Besides lights and trees, they also sell wreaths, tinsel, flocking, reindeer, snowmen - the whole pagan show.

I hadn't realized to what degree Wal-Mart can affect a culture, especially one like this that is thirsty for things American. If it's happening in the States, the style conscious Mexican is all over it.

Wassssup! You know I love you man. I've never said otherwise. Your honesty towards me strengthens my appreciation of you. Thank you.
If I appear wishy washy, then so be it. It is what it is. I genuinely love people. All people. I genuinely love God. But somewhere in the middle is the struggle. I am being asked to choose sides. Keep one and discard the other. I'm being asked to place value on half my brothers and sisters and damn the others. I firmly believe that -we must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools. There is a right way to live together rather than dwell on adversity.
Now going back to my "Wishy washy ways lol" I believe that God has endowed each and every one of us with very special and unique gifts to serve others. One breaks the hard ground and plants a seed. Another waters. Another cultivates and eliminates weeds and so on. We all do what we were made to do. You simply will need to see where your gift is and use it to your full potential.
I am not offended by your honesty in the least. It's appreciated and welcomed.:)
what can i say to this, Al, but yes and amen!

if i may, i would like to point out where you may not be seeing things exactly as they are; you said "I'm being asked to place value on half my brothers and sisters and damn the others"

i don't "damn" anyone when i take a stand for biblical morality and i wouldn't ask you to either. however, i would ask you as a brother to declare biblical morality and not deny it.

you've heard the saying; 'hate the sin, but love the sinner'. i would say that by not declaring sin as sinnful, you're enabling the sinner and doing nothing to proclaim freedom and deliverance from it if/when they're ready to be free. THIS IS NOT LOVE; it's the fear of man and fear of rejection, IMO.

it's all good tho, my brother. like you said; we all have our gifts and talents, strengths and weaknesess and yours are every bit as valid as mine.

love, love and more love!:)

The celebration of Jesus' birth isn't Christian?
lol, you athitards really stretch the truth.
When you provide evidence that he was actually born as depicted in the babble then you can justly claim his birthday but only when you can actually provide evidence to substantiate a date that the son of Pantera was born then you can claim that day as his birthday

Until then you are celebrating a pagan tradition in disguise, a myth, celebrating a hoax, celebrating a lie for your religion

So christian of you.

Absolute or relative morality, which is it?

Moral essence allows one to distinguish between right and wrong. My conduct or character, will produce the absolute of morality, be it good or bad.

Absolute morality can be determined by what I do, even if it is not what I want to do.

Absolute morality tells me to do a thing just because ... Speaking of good morals, no matter what the situation, "absolute" will cause me to take the "relative" facts of morality and respond without reservation.

"I find a law, that, when I would do good, evil is always present with me." Romans 7:21, Apostle Paul.

Desiring to do good is relative. Performing the good or right is absolute.

they celebrate the same pagan day as do we, they merely lie about the reason to celebrate.

most of them have no idea, at all, that their god was born in the image of a sun god.

My hope isn't for immortality.
<quoted text>
I don't think I can beyond saying the obvious: It's a feeling and I have it.
i'm sincerely happy for all people when they say that their life is going well; i believe that it is God's general will that we are all blessed & succeed in life.

however, He also wants to take us from being content with our mortality to being only content with His plan for immortality. if that means shaking us lose from temporal comforts to get us there, so be it:)

HA!

I mention Jesus & you bring up Santa & Wal-Mart....

You really are indoctrinated, aren't you?

*hint* Christmas is the day we celebrate Jesus' birth, not the day we celebrate Wal-Mart...

As early as the year 225, Hippolytus wrote of the celebration of Jesus' birth being on 12-25. Constantine may have made it official, but it was already occurring.

Pagans never celebrated Christmas prior to the establishment of Christmas as a feast day in the church year. Whatever they celebrated, it was NOT Christmas.

For all you athitards who are stating what pagans did as though it is a fact -- where, exactly, is your evidence? Are you just going on what you think is so because you heard it somewhere?
