Dang you are deceitful.
You and Annie proved that you both learned nothing about candling eggs.
No, neither of us proved that.

But you have to believe it in order to feel superior. That's your whole agenda now.

And no, I didn't just learn more about candling from you than I already knew. You claim it is only for breeding purposes, which goes to show you've never had any life experience whatsoever in that area. But you will continue to think you know more than those who have because you so desperately need to do so.

I admit fully that you know quite a bit more than do I in many areas. However, breastfeeding is not one of them, nor is raising chickens by what you've said here.

Keep thinking that the world will be at a loss if you die. But there are more like you that will come along and take your place. That's the thing about life...it's expendable. All the things you have learned will be around for someone else to learn.

We pass on our knowledge to our children and grandchildren. Like I said, my Dad did not have a lot of education, but he was a brilliant man. He was humble. I never saw him come in the door that he wasn't smiling because he was happy to be with his wife and children. He was happy to share knowledge about things in everyday life in hopes of passing on working knowledge. He didn't have a degree to beat people over the head with, and wouldn't have done that even if he had.

You are missing out on life. While you learn simply so you can tell people how inferior they are, many people learn for other reasons. Some of those reasons are necessity, as in raising farm animals and planting crops. Some people learn because it means their livelihood. Some people learn simply because of their love of learning. Some people learn the spiritual lessons of everyday life, one example is Annie's story. But you will discount her spiritual learning as a way to be better than her.

I'd rather be uneducated and live life to it's fullest with the knowledge of everyday things than to be like you, striving to prove yourself to total strangers.

When you are intelligent, people know it without you having to expound on your wonderfulness. But, as you prove, education does not always equal intelligence.

I still think that someone important in your life once told you that you were stupid and you've been proving them wrong ever since. That's a lesson I learned from observing over 66 years. Also, from working with abused women and children. You'd be surprised how often an abused woman stays with her abuser simply because he reinforces what she was told as a child..that she's not smart, not worthy of love, and not of value.

I think you're suffering from the same syndrome, but of course that's just a guess. I only have two years of college and that was studying psychology. That's what I thought I wanted to do in life until I figured out that mental illness was something of which I am not emotionally equipped to deal with. That may stem from the fact that I had a normal childhood with loving parents who always encouraged me. They never hit us. They used reason and if that didn't work, we got to do all the chores we hated to do for a week.

I can't imagine what it's like to have to struggle to prove yourself to even total strangers. You see, I think you are worthwhile even if you didn't have the education you do. I think you are valued simply because you are another human being. I don't like your behavior lately, but it doesn't take away from the fact that you are a part of our human society and therefore have value.

I'd like that value to be something other than a lesson in how not to be. I've learned a great deal from you and others here over the last 5 years. Some of those lessons are simply,'I never want to be like that person, so what can I do to make sure I'm not?'.

To me, there are more important things than just education. You have to be able to live it.

My apologies, "when you were a child" there was a lady that didn't teach you anything about eggs but imparted some kind of "wisdom" on you.
From that you, and then WN, went to telling me I don;t shit about candling or eggs. Then I proven neither of you know shit about candling or eggs and taught you more about both than either of knew in your entire lives.
So, instead of saying thank you, you continue to badger and insult me.
If that is "wisdom", it is nothing but worthless shit.
Once again...you are inserting words into my post that were not there.

1. I never said that she did not teach me the art of candling eggs. She did in fact also teach that. There was just more...

2. No where did I say that you did not know anything about candling eggs. I have not discussed the science behind the egg candling at all.

3. How could you have proved that I know nothing about candling eggs when I did not share in that discussion.

4. What I know about candling eggs I learned from those that candled their eggs for resale...long before I ever knew that you existed. If you are honest...you have no idea what I know and don't know.

5. Okay...I erased #5...

And it seems you still aren't going to be truthful with me or others.

Where does "God" state that any religion is heresy?

Why don't you beleive Jesus?

Why do you think "Paul" was more enlightened than Jesus or any of the remaining 7 original Apostles that didn't make it into the canon?

You are lying again. I never said such a thing.
Yes, you did. You said that in this day and age it is unnecessary for a woman to breast feed. Same thing, G.

You call me a liar because either you don't remember what you said or because you can't admit being thoroughly beaten in that conversation. By mere women. Women who breast fed their babies on a doctor's advice. And..because they are women who wanted the best for their babies. You can't bond with a bottle. Natural immunization doesn't take place with bottle feeding. Babies sleep better when breast fed. They feel more secure when they are breast fed. As a result of that, they grow to adulthood feeling more secure. But all that flew right over your head because you read up on breast feeding, found an article that proved (to you) that you knew more about breast feeding than mothers do, and made you feel superior.

Why not, instead of trying to prove that an education is worth more than life, prove that you're a compassionate, well-adjusted human being with the ability to communicate with us heathen idiots?

At the expense of others ? You are the one making a fool of yourself. I am just pointing it out and laughing.
Quite the contrary, G. How many people will look at what Annie said about learning a spiritual lesson and laugh at her? No one other than you has stepped up to that plate.

I'm not laughing at you. I really feel sorry for you that you feel the need to go to the extremes you have lately in order to prove yourself to people you don't even know. I feel sorry that you can't see the value in the experiences of others without having to try to one-up them just to prove yourself. You're not proving yourself to be superior here, D. You're proving yourself to be an insecure, desperate man. That is really the saddest part of all.

Compliments of It ain't Necessarily so, from a few doors down:
From Pat Condell:
"Faith-peddlers like to put themselves beyond question by claiming that their faith transcends reason, the very thing that calls it to account. How convenient. Yes, faith transcends reason the way a criminal transcends the law.
"The word "transcendent" is very popular with religious hustlers because they never have to explain precisely what they mean by it, other than some vague superior state of understanding more profound than mere reason, which is crude and simplistic next to the subtleties and profundities of belief without evidence.
"If you hear a senior clergyman (and you will) using the word “transcendent" to explain the nonsense he claims to believe, then you know two things: one: he doesn't know what he's talking about, and two: he doesn't want you to know what he's talking about either."
*snarf*
so don't peddle your faith/faithlesness to me and i won't peddle to you!

you start pushing your eternal extinction and 'they say' antichrist nonsense tho & i'm up in your grill faster than you can say "i got devils"!;)

dude - the Bible states what's true and needs not cover every conceivable falsehood that antichrist new agers can possibly come up with. you know, the whole 'best defense is a good offense' kinda idea? how could anyone anticipate the depths of depravity and falsehood that the kingdom of darkness can come up with? we just leave you to your own destructive devices and move on to people who may love the light:)

He loves to tear down people who refuse to validate him and his stupid beliefs, and his alleged education. He grows more like viking every day.

No it doesn't; your 'father of creation' does not exist. Therefore, I have no sin. You don't get to impose your religion on me. I deny your god, and you cannot prove your god.

Wrong. There is nothing wrong with eating fertilized eggs. They aren't poisonous.
So much for your "wise woman" status ,too.
It tells you whether or not there's a chick inside of it, you stupid sh*thead. Or maybe you'd prefer to eat half-developed chicks.
