I don't remember the full conversation, and not going to dig it up but...

This "faith is a harmful, or at least non-beneficial meme" is not a provable or even a viable assertion.
You would have to be alot more specific. Ergo...
I have faith I will succeed at the task in front of me.
Faith is beneficial to many, even in false beliefs.
Many need this to drive them, but some of us are past this.
Example..

Children have faith in Santa and try to be good, so he will come to their house and leave their wishes. This is a false doctrine, but a healthy one that is a part of growing up. This is not harmful and is beneficial. We outgrow this faith in Santa , but realize the lesson and learn as it helps us become the "Santa" later in life.

Poor little Myron. With my superior intellect, I've reduced her to a simpering and quivering pile of penguin shit, incapable of original thought. She now is forced to imitate me in a lame-ass and failed attempt at revenge.

Another chew toy has bitten the dust. I guess I'll have to find another.

Hey, RR? If you can find the goodness in your heart, maybe you can sew her little button eyes back on?

Mylan. Penquin shit. Sometimes I just crack myself up.

There's faith, and there's faith. Reasonable, and unreasonable. I have faith that my Cherokee will start when I'm at Costco in the rain, for example. Do I have faith that a god of *any* kind is going to fix all of our problems? Nnnnnope.

I also have faith that Myron will come back at me with another lame attempt at insulting me, but who really cares what that pile of penguin shit believes?

As for me, I happen to believe in self-defense. I am very pro-choice, and people have a right to choose for themselves whether or not to own a firearm and I don't believe the government has a right to take away that choice. Especially if it's Constitutionally guaranteed.
so you don't care what god thinks and you call scaring people with guns "self defence"

We should just stop arguing its never going to end because people with religious beliefs can never be changed as they grew up with it

I know this commercial is about texting, but it's also about taking your eyes off of the road while driving. Just ONE second could make all the difference. It's very realistic. Watch it and try to remember it while you're driving and PLEASE be safe!

Hey sweetheart!!:-)
The world is exactly the same as it was before. Evil just takes on another form, that's all!
Nice to be called sweetheart even if at 66 it means that the 'sweetheart' is all the sweetness I would get from a woman who could be my granddaughter. The heartbreak of getting old and still having a young mind.

There are lots of evil people in the world, hon, and humans have much better technology today than ever before so we could easily reduce the world population very quickly if some maniac got in control of that technology, but aside from that, really the only place in North America that is having a huge amount of killing is Mexico.

Canada hasn't had to beat up on the USA since the war of 1812, which was finally settled as a draw rather than Britain bringing in more forces and taking over the whole country - what would Canada want with the USA anyway, other than getting to the sunny beaches in winter without having to go through customs?

Canada is a wonderful country only a tiny part of which I have actually seen. Most of Europe has been at peace since WWII, whereas throughout past history the various countries were always at war with one another. We just need to get Asia and
Africa to get their act together, which I admit is a difficult task, since they contain the majority of the world population, and many of their countries don't seem to want peace.

Perhaps by now you see that I don't have a clue what I am talking about. But I do like to ramble, and the attention of a pretty young woman, or pretty older woman for that matter.

Is that all America is to you, sunny beaches?

On the serious side, could you imagine how you would feel if you texted a loved one and found out that the text was the reason that people died in a car accident? I think more new laws went into effect this month regarding texting while driving. They should have a commercial like the UK has here in the states. For biological reasons I don't think anyone under 21 should be allowed to drive. Because of that biological reason car accidents are the leading cause of teen deaths.

I commend Ford for coming up with the SYNC system whose primary reason is to help keep the drivers eyes on the road. They have won so many awards and now other car companies are following them. The new SYNC system is really amazing. I just wish they'd make it more user upgradable.

This is a topic I absolutely agree wiht you on.

Texting & driving is so stupid, I can't believe they even had to think about making it a law. I don't text n drive, ever. Hell, I don't even text, except to my wife & my brother...

You can spot them texters real easy, they swerve on the road much like a drunk driver. I always just back off.

I don't think these new cars should have that stupid tv screen on the dash, it's a major distraction - whether it be a map, music, a text, or even sometimes it's a real tv...

Right. Poor, picked on China had to tell those self-immolators to stop embarrassing them by dying like that. After all, China only out numbers them by about 2 billion to 1.
