He's as anonymous as they come, other than for his compulsivity/impulsivity, and rock-headed stubbornness. Christianity hasn't just ruined him, it's crippled him.

What a waste of human life he has made of himself.

Hi, River :)

Dude, you MUST have some options available to you for spending your personal time, other than whittling it away on a god-forsaken thread about a supposed god that has, apparently, complete forsaken you..........but addictions to substances as well as pastimes/behaviors are hard to overcome, certainly not things one might expect a yellow-bellied, wife-beating curmudgeon such as you to successfully negotiate.
Two reasons.

1. I'm addicted to debate.

I agree with you re: pot. I have zip/zilch/nada/no consideration for dealers of any sort. It's a rather sad state when people resort to illegal means to make money, and sadder still when they must feed an addiction of their own.
On that, you & I agree.

LOL , Can you let the Vatican know that their observatory is not used for science and maybe they should close all their hospitals and research organizations searching for ways to heal the sick. The Catholic Church remains the single greatest private provider of medical care and research facilities in the WORLD.

Strawman.....When did the cathaholic church and vatican become the creationist science community.
Even at that, if they do not or will not provide their monetary stats they are lying con artists.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. How could she have existed in the 14th century when she was only first written about in 1899?

Okay, so it can't reveal **all** of its mysteries, you're implying that it has revealed some.

What mysteries has "Nature" revealed to you?

<quoted text> I'll supply a meaning of the word, contained within the definition that applies to every single person on the face of the earth.
It won't require misuse of the word at all, however, it will require clarification of the word,*spiritual*, and what its definition encompasses.
Adjective: spiritual spi-ri-choo-ul
1. Concerned with sacred matters, religion or the church
"lords temporal and spiritual"; "spiritual leaders";
- religious
2. Concerned with or affecting the spirit or soul
"a spiritual approach to life"; "spiritual fulfilment";
- unearthly
3. Lacking material body, form or substance
"spiritual beings"; "the vital transcendental soul belonging to the spiritual realm"
4. Resembling or characteristic of a phantom
"spiritual tappings at a seance";
- apparitional, ghostlike, ghostly, phantasmal, spectral
http://www.wordwebonline.com/search.pl ...
We can look at the #1 definition given, and it states that the word *spiritual* isn't a concept exclusive to religion. It uses the word *sacred* and that's before "religion or the church" is mentioned.
Are you ready to learn?
Lets look at the word *sacred*.
Adjective: sacred sey-krid
1.Concerned with religion or religious purposes
"sacred texts"; "sacred rites"; "sacred music"
2.Worthy of respect or dedication
"saw motherhood as woman's sacred calling"
3.Made or declared or believed to be holy; devoted to a deity or some religious ceremony or use
"the sacred mosque"; "sacred elephants"; "sacred bread and wine";
- consecrated, sanctified
4.Worthy of religious veneration
"the sacred name of Jesus";
- hallowed
5.(often followed by 'to') devoted exclusively to a single use, purpose or person
"a fund sacred to charity"; "a morning hour sacred to study"; "a private office sacred to the President"
http://www.wordwebonline.com/search.pl ...
The #2 and #5 definition of *sacred* applies here, relates directly to spiritual, and also, again, does not imply or mandate an exclusive religious/deity - soul/spirit specific use.
So, when we look at *spiritual* and understand what that definition utilizes as descriptors in defining the word,*spiritual*, it's easy to see it encompasses a wide range of meaning, and is not a word that - only - those of religious/deity - soul/spirit beliefs can claim to possess.
The word *spiritual* and its usage belongs to all humans, regardless if they have a religious/deity - soul/spirit belief, or not. Nontheist or theist.
Notice, I didn't have to redefine the word at all - and I could go more in depth - but what I've pointed out is sufficient.
There are other descriptors that further enhance and point to the fact that *spiritual* is not confined to a religious or supernatural context. I only clarified, and there are other uses of the word *spiritual* that I didn't cover here.
The word *spiritual* is narrowly restricted in religious tradition and claimed to be sole property of those with religious/deity or soul/spirit beliefs.
I'll say it again.
Religion has attempted to hijack the word and will assert that *spiritual* can only be utilized or experienced by people with religious/deity or soul/spirit beliefs.
As if *spiritual* is categorically and absolutely denied to people who don't have religious/deity - soul/spirit beliefs.
That's not the case.
Oh, and, by the way, while you pray for me... I'll think for you.

You don't believe in thinking? It shows. You're *proud* of your willflul ignorance and stupidity, aren't you? You are *exactly* the kind of mentally malleable person that christianity attracts.

You do not deserve the freedoms that other people died for.

Be coy yourself, Redneck, but now's not the time to practice yet further dishonesty.

I haven't tried to figure anything out.

I've made no "warnings"; I've made tongue-in-cheek "Public Service Announcements" about an entirely anonymous person claiming to be in the general area which you allege to live in about your admitted time-theft from your employer, whoever it may or may not be.(I'm more inclined lately to think it's "not be".....)

As is typical with you, you malign the words of others to suit your personal needs and dictates. You're a class "W12,457b.1" lowlife liar and drunk.
