Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Only thing I pray for is acceptance of 'God's will'. Nothing more is needed.

It may seem that I get angry here. I'm not. Just frustrated by closed minds and disgusted by the dishonesty.

<quoted text>failure to adapt.... one could wonder what gave the bird the intelligence to not only fly, but to lay and hatch eggs, gather food for their young and teach them to fly. I watch the magpies every year, and am amazed at how Papa Magpie takes on the same caring role as Mama Magpie, and how the little ones stare at the ground, waiting for a bit of movement to pounce on. When they get old enough, if they keep squawking and squealing for their food, they sort of get pushed around, making them grow up and fend for themselves. Wouldn't a Penguin like to be able to fly out of trouble as much as a bird did and does? Given all these millions of years to 'evolve' into much more clever beings, why have they chosen to stay the same, when they have obvious weaknesses?
Will the Polar bears adapt to the global warming, or will they just become extinct? Why can't they adapt, or go back to being a brown bear?
***What is happening to our polar bear population?
As you can see in this picture, these polar bears are stranded on a melting glacier. They are probably already dead. This is no joke. Because of Global warming, the ice is melting, spring comes earlier, and winter later, the polar bears have less time to hunt to store food in their bodys.- madie August 24, 2007 SOURCE
Endangered species status of the polar bear to be decided May 15
April 29, 2008
Mongabay.com
A federal judge has ordered the Bush administration to stop delaying its decision on whether to list the polar bear as an endangered species. Environmentalists say the bear is threatened by melting sea ice in its Arctic habitat.
Judge Claudia Wilken of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled Monday that the Department of the Interior has violated the law by missing the deadline for filing a decision on the status of the polar bear by four months. She said the agency would have to arrive at a decision by May 15, 2008.
The Department of the Interior had sought to delay the decision until June 30, 2008. It had already missed a January 2008 deadline.

Yeah ~ GOD gave us anger for a purpose, just like HE gave us adrenalin...

***Adrenaline and Strength

When we feel fear or are faced with a sudden dangerous situation, the human body undergoes an amazing change. The stressor -- for example, the sight of your son pinned beneath a car -- stimulates the hypothalamus. This region of the brain is responsible for maintaining the balance between stress and relaxation in your body. When it's alerted to danger, it sends out a chemical signal to your adrenal glands, activating the sympathetic system, which sends the body into an excited state. These glands release adrenaline (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine), hormones that create the state of readiness that helps a human confront danger. Together, these hormones raise heart rate, increase respiration, dilate the pupils, slow down digestion and -- perhaps most importantly -- allow muscles to contract.

All of these changes in our normal physical state prepare us to face danger head-on. Combined, they make us more agile, allow us to take in more information and help us use more energy. But adrenaline's effect on muscles accounts for amazing strength. Adrenaline acts on muscles, allowing them to contract more than they can when the body is in a calm or neutral state.

You could figure out Her state of decomposition if you really wanted to by some research and hen she died. Don't know why you'd care about your dead sister's decomposing progress though, to each their own I guess.:shrugs:

In burning deaths after a while the nerves and body numb up or you pass out from the pain. I would say she lost consciousness.

Anything else I can help you with?

My leg, while alive, didn't have thoughts. I think we're talking about different things.

I'm very sorry about your sister.

<quoted text>
She was 2.5 years old, and could not lay down in the ambulance, due to the horrid burns she had suffered. Her beautiful little face was not burned though, apart from a little blister on her nose. She did not lapse into unconsciousness for some time, but maybe you are right, and she no longer felt her pain.

My Father was driving a steam train out in the bush country and was told of the news that one of his children had suffered possible fatal injuries, although he was not told which child (I wasn't alive at that time) and they sent out one of those hand carts that ride on train tracks to meet him and out in that arid land and over 100 degree heat, they pumped that cart as hard as they could to get him back to his child.

He didn't make it in time.....

I don't think I like the way you teach, you remind me of a teacher that I left school for, but none the less, I guess you think you know it all

At 57, it wouldn't hurt me to lose a few pounds, as I have gone up a couple of sizes in clothes, but funnily enough, I have learned to understand that my body is my vessel, and that it is my Heart and Soul that count. I am working on them continually, perhaps I could call myself a WIP!

<quoted text>If you do not pray for knowledge and wisdom as to what God's will is, you are simply praying to get your own way.
Because that is not what Jesus taught.

" After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

My point probably was there is someone somewhere who has more than likely done it harder, and we should be careful of others when we joke.

Your leg might not have had thoughts, but it did have feelings, and I have heard that even after one loses a limb or a digit, they can still feel the urge to scratch it....

Quite a few years ago, I went to our Aussie version of John Edwards, and without a doubt, he was telling me that my little sister was here for the duration that she was meant to be here for, and that as such, she is a Master of Ceremonies (in the Spirit world)..

He gave me a few things that I didn't know as verification (normal practice) and one was that there was still one of her dresses around. She had died over 50 years before that, and I knew I would have known of any of her clothing that might still be here, and doubted his word.

I did tell my Mother what he had said though, and she told me that in a way, there was still a dress of hers around today...

Mum had been making her a little dress when the tragedy happened, and she kept that half made dress for 30 years, and then decided to make a dolls dress out of it for my Sisters doll. The doll and the dress are probably sitting on my elder sisters bed as I am writing this.....
