That was a while ago.

I did a two-year stretch behind bars since then.

You know what an insult is?

When your boy drops your last name.

.. hi ya Big Brother. How was your vacation ??..
It was on a hunting trip of sorts, Li'l Sis - in search of the gold master points needed to become a life master at bridge - my latest goal - and available only at sectional bridge tournaments like the one I just attended in Puerto Vallarta. I was successful: I got a little over half of the number I needed (25) this trip, meaning I only need to do this one more time. I went without the Mrs, which made it a bit of a drag.

.. yes, ego is part of self and serves a vital purpose. At times, philosophers refer to the ego as the false self so I understand what Buck is trying to say .. sometimes the ego can be a monster of madness (think Skom). When you walk in understanding, compassion and gentleness, ego is absent .. like organized religion, the painful need to always be right, the words of hate, the desire for vengeance and the proclivity to divide and separate is part and parcel of Topix .. if there's a better way, we must find it through each other ..
The better way will follow the decline of organized religion. It's a sure thing.

Oh,...then I'm sorry. Obviously, the mistake is mine.

Or,...

If you read half-way down the page:

"Haas, the son of hulking former Alabama lineman Joe King, is already 276 pounds."

Is that why climate scientists lied about their global warming data and skewed reports? Is that what they considered as evidence being "evaluated and properly regarded"? Because to some, it was more like evidence being stuffed down a dust crack so they could get more funding by being on the politically-correct side of science. I'm just saying - some would take hiding one's data and lying about it that way. Have scientists found out if eggs are good for me or not yet? They've been around a long time.(both eggs and scientists)
If fraud were genuinely a deal killer for you, you would have been an atheist long ago.

Your kind seek to replace organized religion with organized unreligion.

Why is that better?

Scroll down to the bottom, and the name is once again Jim King. Well written article. Anyway, I don't buy that you're really Joe King, so I not going to pursue this.

If it were deduction, others would be able to follow your argument and agree. I suspect something else.

My ego has served me well thus far, so I trust it.
Dave Nelson wrote:
In my experiments I found I could draw that force out of the ground and wrap it up. It became an invisible entity. I also disassembled it, and it didn't go with out a fight. This was the same technology employed by the megalith builders and their religion. They just had a different perspective and term of what the energy was.
OK.

If you get within the influence of those devices on the macro scale you can get a religious experience.

Alabama has never had an offensive lineman named Jim King.

That's because only one member of Dave's present audience is as smart as Dave.

Dave's post to which I referred displays more insight into the nature of humanity than everything you learned in medical school, or even if you throw in all your humanist propaganda literature.

His ability to experience and express it is the most impressive thing I've seen on Topix,...other than myself.
