  1. There have been many frustrated moments in my life when I’ve looked at what I, at that point in time, felt was a bumbling moronic populace. It disgusted me that they could so simply find solace and affirmation in such a far-fetched social construct as God.

    Its there, they accept it, they don’t question it, because to question it would mean facing some really difficult issues and doubts, so they just go with the flow. “God is in control” – so I don’t have to be.”

    It always amazes me how smug atheists just assume that anyone with a modicum of faith has never questioned or confronted their faith or the question of God.

  3. The Artist Formerly Known as Worfeus10:48 PM

    And the concept of God is in many cases anything but a social construct. It usually comes down to a personal concept that is explored and tempered throughout ones life.


    "Where we have reasons/logic for what we believe, we have no need of faith. However, where evidence and logic are scarce we rely on faith and thus we lose our connection to the world and one another."

  5. Here is an illusion-oops I mean God- that many follow.

    And, is this where morality comes from?

    Deuteronomy, chapter 13

    6: If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;

    7: Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;

    8: Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:

    9: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

    10: And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God,

  6. Its a thumb to suck - a skirt to hold - nothing more! And, I know you know it Worf.

    Oh, I almost forgot. Volt and I will be over for turkey tommorow. I,ll bring my best bottle of "Five Star"


  7. Hope Everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!!

  8. Thanks, Mike, hope you had a good Thanksgiving as well.

    However,Canadians typically celebrate their Thanksgiving around mid October.

    I have no idea why Americans celebrate theirs a month later in late November?

  9. The Artist Formerly Known as Worfeus6:55 PM

    Because Americans know how to have fun, and Canadians think fun is sweeping ice with a broom?

  10. The Artist Formerly Known as Worfeus6:55 PM

    Hi Mike! Hi Clif! Long time no see.

  11. I have no idea why Americans celebrate theirs a month later in late November?

    actually that one is easily answered if you know the growing seasons of the two.

    In Canada most growing seasonal activity if finished by the end of Oct, temps dip below freezing and winter starts to set in, further south in the good ole USA that doesn't happen before mid to late Nov, in fact in southern Cali and southern Florida that might never happen.

    Thanksgiving is an end of season harvest celebration.

  12. Thanks for the "Thanksgiving" info Cliff. I can honestly say that I didn't know that.
