i'm 63 years of age, separated since 2005, would happily get a divorce IF I had any idea where my estranged wife was living.
I have been married twice, had a son who was stillborn and a daughter who passed away aged 16 from cancer in January 2001, I live alone except for my fish in an aquarium, I enjoy gardening, reading, 60s -80s music, art, poetry, good documentaries, English crime shows and decent movies including history based ones, cook for myself, mostly healthy foods but the occasional 'fast foods'' as a kind of 'treat' once or twice a fortnight, grow my vegies when I can.
I'm a very laid back, easy going type of person so what you see is pretty much what you get.

This is an absolutely amazing lecture given by a brilliant man.
Triphid comments on Sep 26, 2020:
In , my honest and somewhat well educated opinion, anything remotely resembling 'spiritual, religious mystical, etc, is little more than wishful thinking and unadulterated cat piddle at it's very best. You hear, ever so tediously I might add, how he/she has "gotten into the 'spirit' of one thing or another, is a very spirited person, etc, etc." Or even as far as "he/she/they have the spirit of God/Jesus, etc, in them," Absolute Crapola to the max, since absolutely NO-ONE has ever truly defined, proven and exhibited empirically what this woo-woo magical 'spirit' is. The ONLY true and real, tangible SPIRITS are those contained in alcohol based chemical forms such as Methylated Spirits, Beer, Rum, Whiskey and the like.

Triphid comments on Sep 26, 2020:
Once had cat, one of the only 3 cats that I've ever liked btw, Lorrae and I called him Horse after the cartoon cat from "Footrot Flats.' I tend to think 'Horse' truly believed he was a re-incarnated Sabre -Toothed Cat/Tiger, he literally terrorised every dog in the neighbourhood to the point, and I'm not joking, the dogs would deliberately cross to the other side of the street rather go past our house including the dog from 4 houses down the street, a massive Rottweiler aptly name "Wrecking-ball." Horse would always sit in the driveway, just millimetres from the tyre tracks as I drove the 4x4 Toyota in to the drive and he was so 'cock-sure' of himself and his 'invincibility' that he'd just slightly move back his head as the wheels went past it. Sadly, Horse met his end when he decided, one day to tackle an 18 wheeler as it drove up the street by doing his I'm invincible bit. For anyone interested in it the animate movie "Footrot Flats" is available on DVD and darned well worth the watching btw.

Triphid comments on Sep 25, 2020:
Oh shit, sounds very much to me like there's going be yet another child born with F.A.D.D.S. ( Foetal Alcohol and Drug Dependency Syndrome), the poor little kid's chances of getting anywhere in life are looking bloody slim if that's the case. 9 times out of 10 the baby/s are born either suffering from withdrawal symptoms or they start with them in the first few days after birth IF they survive at all that is. IF they survive then their physical and Mental development is, more often than not, severely retarded, they do very badly at school, usually they are very late in learning to walk, talk, etc, etc, have very intense and possibly violent mood swings, can be very introverted, sociological backwards to the extreme, lack the powers of concentration, have either very short attention spans or none at all and even worse for them, some even end up as little than living in a 'vegetative' state because of the irreversible brain damage caused by the Drugs/Alcohol taken in by the mother during pregnancy. That poor child is looking down the barrel of a life of 'pushing shit up-hill' thanks to his mother and her drinking, the child has a probably shorten than the normal life span to live with not much more than a hard struggle every minute of every day for that entire life.

If something causes psychological harm, it's not harmless.
Triphid comments on Sep 23, 2020:
Unfortunately, unlike physical wounds, psychological ones do not always 'heal' over time. Psychical wounds scab over, the skin closes over and perhaps a small scar remains, but that too fades a bit with time. Psychological wounds, on the other hand, have no such healing processes and are often prone to merely 'festering away and then erupting out over and over again. I'd rather suffer a thousand psychical wounds every day than 1 psychological one.
Americans Who Identify As 'Spiritual' More Likely To Engage In Politics, New Study Finds
Triphid comments on Sep 23, 2020:
Ergo, If one is considering oneself to both 'spiritual' and religious then one should first remember where in the bible it says plainly " Render unto Caesar ONLY that which is Caesar's, Render unto God that which is God's," and "No man can serve two Masters." I.e. and imo, IF you want to be spiritual or religious or BOTH then be so but stay out of politician, IF you want to a politician then stay well out of religion/s.

Triphid comments on Sep 22, 2020:
Me thinks I smell the very familiar odours on religious self-righteousness exuding many-fold from the piece of completely undiluted religiotard bull droppings. Plus the frequent usages of Halos and religious symbolisms gives one a sense of self-righteousness as well imo. Maybe, just maybe, someone should remind the producer of that show of unmitigated self-righteousness of the biblical passage that states, " Judge ye not, lest ye too shall be judged." Imo, being 'good' is as one does and as one thinks NOT as one believes. I.e. ANYONE can be a good, decent and caring person when given the same during their up-bringing, No-one needs to believe in a Higher, Omnipotent, Magical Entity to be a good, decent and caring person all it takes is the will and fortitude to do so.

Triphid comments on Sep 21, 2020:
Best of Luck in your battle with cancer and as my daughter always said " Never stop fighting until the fighting is done," I think she 'borrowed' that line from the movie, "The Untouchables " btw. As to the "I'll pray for you " rhetoric I always remember what Lorrae, a often outspoken 15 year old, said to the 'wandering' Chaplian when he spouted out those words to her during the first Chemo session. " i'd rather have a Get Well card and a bunch of artificial flowers thanks, they last a whole lot longer."
Christian Science Healing??? [abc.net.au]
Triphid comments on Sep 21, 2020:
" Christian, Science and Healing" all blended together, what a massive oxymoron. Just ask my Evangeloon neighbour how well that worked with his 'Moron A' virus infection. It has so far cost him over $500 Australian for Prayers and Hands on Healing sessions and he still believes, emphatically, that he has. A viral infection that btw, does NOT exist because as a rather dubious joke of sorts I diagnosed for him and a local doctor, jokingly, confirmed when he, the neighbour, rushed himself to the A & E Department of out local hospital. The gullible of this world are, imo, somewhat akin to Mushrooms, i.e. keep them in the dark, feed them on bullshit and watch the crop grow exponentially.

What precise difference does it truly make, both are filled with violence, hatred, misogyny, racism, slavery, rape, pillaging, oppression, subjugation, blood-lust, etc, etc, the list is almost endless. ergo, IF that is what being 'Holy' means then I'll stay exactly what I am thank you, a Heathen, Pagan, Non-believing Devil's Pawn.

Triphid comments on Sep 19, 2020:

Look at the rest of the world as well, the U.S. has had and done far more than its fair share of promoting violence both on its home soil and abroad, Britain, Europe, Asia, South and Central Americas, Africa even Australia are so squeaky clean as the want us to believe. As the old saying goes, "People who live in glasshouses SHOULD NEVER throw stones."

Triphid comments on Sep 19, 2020:
Yes and No, since, imo, one can be completely certain that any and all Gods/Goddesses, etc, for example, are the products of the human mind and nothing else. However in the realms of the Sciences such as Physics, etc, things can and do change as further researches and more evidences come to light. However, stating that any person who has absolutes in their mind must, therefore, have joined the ranks of the religious is incorrect since religions cannot any will not change ever. They scrape and scrabble through the dusts of centuries passed to eke out evidence that will prove them correct and yet scream like scalded cats the very second their 'evidence/s' are put under the microscope and examined in detail. There are absolutes in life, etc, one being that everyone will die at some time in their span of life, whether it be from natural causes, etc, etc, no-one knows for certain, BUT, it will happen and that is ABSOLUTE.

We were invited to the 'unwrapping', saw this huge bundle, which he careful cut open ONLY to reveal the contents, a retractable tape measure, a Pick, Shovel, a long Crow-bar and 5 pages of instructions, all that for a mere insane price of $1,999 Australian.

Does God want Christians to be a ‘good guy with a gun’?
Triphid comments on Sep 16, 2020:
In my honest opinion, there are NO such thing as "Good" and "Bad" murders, there ARE only murders and murderers and as such, the taking of the life of a living, sentient human being for whatever reason is 1,000.000+ % WRONG no matter how you choose to paint it. How many more times must we be forced to bear with hearing that piss -poor excuse of " God told me to do it" when some scum-bag takes a life away from someone else? "God told me to do it," is nothing more than a feeble attempt to circumvent the Law by offering a "Get Out Life in Prison in the hope of only doing 10 - 20 years" card with a religious bias added in for extra measure. IF they were, as they claim, Christians then they would know that the Commandments state clearly " Thou shalt NOT Kill." Ergo, imo, this negates completely any and all excuses for Christians carrying fire-arms, imo.

The Trump mechanic "Hey, dipshit, what the fuck did you do to my car?
Triphid comments on Sep 16, 2020:
Sounds a whole lot like the 'mechanic ???' that recently 'serviced' my Stihl Chainsaw. I took it in for good and thorough CLEAN, before it went in it was working A.O.K., no problems, could cut up to a ton of firewood, hard Aussie Red Gum btw, in about 2-3 hours, the only slight problem it had was that the Chain Oil pump leaked from time to time. When I got it back, after 2 weeks btw, it has a prolonged acceleration 'flat spot' when I press the trigger, a regular mis-fire and a back-fire, it stops and starts with tiresome regularity when being used and all this because he CLAIMED that he over-hauled the whole chainsaw, cleaned and re-set the carburetor plus fitted a NEW Oil pumps as well. I asked him, over the phone, IF he re-tuned my chainsaw when it had had time to warm up or whilst it was still cold. His reply was " I did it while it was still cold because I was due for my lunch break." Shit, any mechanic knows that when you re-tune an internal combustion engine, big or small, it IS customary to allow the engine to reach running temperature first. Thanks to the stars I have the brains to, 1) remember my years of working on 2-stroke motorcycle engines and can undo, hopefully, that idiots screw ups, and, 2) I had the sense to have a spare chainsaw on hand. $176 for him to be paid to 'screw' my chainsaw, I hope he has better ' talents ' when it comes to satisfying his life partner.

Triphid comments on Sep 15, 2020:
Maybe, just maybe, this God which you seem to be proclaiming here exists but is undetectable simply because he/she/it has undergone a 'Star Trek style 'Phase Shift' OR merely IS totally undetectable simply because he/she/it DOES NOT actually exist at all and NEVER has. Btw, the latter is a far better and far more logical explanation than the former and the positted explanation put forward by those Phsyicists. Btw, IF I'm correct in what I think you are saying, i.e. "braneworld," the actual spelling would be Brain-world and emissions such electromagnetic waves and the like are NOT confined ONLY in our 'brain-world/' and thus only detectable by our brains, our brains operate using micro-electrical impulses traveling through the interconnecting links similar to how electricity travels from Power Stations to homes, etc, etc. Logically, God is but a dream conceived in the minds of human kind, and can only be seen in such dreams WHEN the Dreamer is asleep and NOTHING contained in dreams is either real or tangible in any way, shape or form.
Disbelieve it or not, ancient history suggests that atheism is as natural to humans as religion | ...
Triphid comments on Sep 14, 2020:
Well considering that humans evolved from a much earlier Primate ancestor similar to the rest of the Apes, and apes do not have religions/religious beliefs of any real shape or form then it is ONLY logical that the early humans were Atheists at the onset of their evolution. Imo, ANY religious belief system/s comes about when someone sees the opportunity to to enhance their social standing, etc, by 'persuading' the rest of the group/clan that they are able to contact the invisible 'higher power' that 'controls' the world around them thus they begin to get the best of everything their group/clan has to offer, etc, etc. From then on it becomes in-grained into the minds of the peoples that they MUST care for and appease both the so-called 'Agent' of this Higher Power and the Higher Power itself or they will suffer the consequences at, possibly, so later undetermined time. As the old Political saying goes, " feed the people Fear, keep the people afraid and you CAN do anything you want them and they, usually, will NOT object."

Homeschool religion
Triphid comments on Sep 10, 2020:
Sounds like you are doing the job 110% the right way. Even though my daughter went to Primary School, I also taught her at home as well. By the time she was old enough to go to Preschool and then Kindergarten she was well and truly able to read, write, could do the basics of Mathematics and was, to the extent of her comprehensive abilities to distinguish between what was real and what was fantasy as in religions, etc. A child's mind is a very hungry thing, it thirsts for knowledge and the more you feed it the truths and realities the better it will grow and expand. Remember as well that they are still children so foster their natural curious natures, answer their questions, no matter how embarrassing they may be at times, with honesty and in words and terms that they can easily comprehend and understand.

"Forgive and Forget," to this I say twaddle. Should I forgive and forget ANY of the following, I ask you, A) the years and years of mental, physical torment that my 'mother ??' put me through, B) and the worst of all btw, the treatment the 'mother ???' of my daughter, Lorrae, got when she was going through Chemotherapy aged a mere 15 years old and this 'woman' ONLY came the 300+ miles ONCE to see her and then ONLY because it fitted in with HER scheduled Appointment with an Eye Specialist in the same City, C) the same woman who, when informed that her child had between 7 and 10 days to live stated quite empathically that "tell that selfish little bitch that she'll have to wait because MY friends need me more than she does," that same child who passed away 24 hours later with me by her side as I had been 24/7 for the last 12 months, D) the self-same woman who immediately, upon hearing that her ONLY child had died, went directly to the local Credit Union where my daughter had her bank account and DEMANDED that she be permitted to withdraw ALL Lorrae's funds and close the account, got very irrate when informed that " Only the Custodial Parent can be allowed to do so upon presenting the Death Certificate and ALL monies MUST be used to cover as much as possible the Funeral Expenses, E) the self-same woman, who, less than a week AFTER her child was cremated, DEMANDED that the grieving father 'pack up and return ALL Xmas gifts No matter from whom they were received), etc, etc, of her late daughter to her and her alone and that SHE would be collecting them in person within the next 3 hours.

What is the source of non-religious prudishness or disgust at nudity or sexuality?
Triphid comments on Sep 8, 2020:
I tend to think that the human disgust/prudishness towards nudity stems directly from the bible itself. That being derived from the Book of Genesis where the entirely mythological Adam and Eve suddenly learned and discovered that they were completely naked and hence decided to wear leaves to cover up their 'private parts.' Early humans would have used animal skins as a kind of covering to keep warm in the cold months and climes most likely and probably gone at least naked or partial naked in the warmer months/climes but when Christianity and earlier belief systems began to take hold on societies then came about the necessity for clothing the body. It was not until Europeans invaded ( settled) in Australia, for example, the the Indigenous natives began wearing any types of clothing nor felt shame, etc, in being completely naked except for on and during ceremonial occasions. After all, are we NOT all born completely naked?

Triphid comments on Sep 7, 2020:
Sorry if I sound a bit on the 'cold and uncaring side' here but who the f'ck wrote that script? Someone nominate her for an Oscar please. I've been an Atheist since childhood, my fellow siblings all went and became religious, i.e. 1 went Catholic, 1 went Lutheran, 1 went full on J.W. and the other turned into being a Hare Krishna (hairy Crushed-nuts in Aussie parlance LOL), I never went through the things she's describing, I even brought my late daughter up as an Atheist and she never copped any flack as she's describing. Geez, I've known many a person who has dumped religion and found that life is far far better without it so what the blazes is she on about, Atheism, imo, IS the Good life bar none.

How nice! Or not.
Triphid comments on Sep 7, 2020:
With my rather acerbic and sarcastic sense of humour I'd be immediately be seeking out something just a little risque and slightly explicit looking in the way of a smallish statue to place on the desk as an ornament. When I was working on the N.S.W. State Railways back in the mid-1980's we were cursed, so to speak, with having a very devout Catholic Trainee Loco Driver join our ranks. In his words, it was "HIS God given task to bring God and Jesus to we, the Heathens, working there," so every day shift, afternoon shift, night shift he would place post it notes with bible passages on our Crib tins, Locker doors and all over the walls as well as demanding that we pray BEFORE the start of each shift, during Smoko or meal breaks and at the end of each shift. He also made incessant complaints that " there was nowhere for him to hang up his coat/jacket." So, after a snap conference, we decided to accede to his demands for his OWN individual Coat hook. We set about carving from wood the said coat hook in the shape of an African Idol complete with a very large erect penis, etc, and set on to the wall behind HIS self-proclaimed seat in the Meal room, where every day one or more of us would leave cryptic style messages on post it notes stuck to the coat hook. 3 weeks later he literally begged the District Manager for a transfer.
Weirdest Passages You've Read?
Triphid comments on Sep 7, 2020:
If you're wanting weird bible passages then, imo, all you need do is start at Line 1, page 1 and work your way through the whole bible. There are, quite literally, thousands of them to be found like, for example, 1) God makes Adam from the dust of the Earth but needs to take a bone from Adam to make woman, 2) God creates everything with just a mere word and yet the Believers will tell you that god does not exist in a corporeal form, therefore God could NOT utter a single word even a sound since God was without Vocal Chords, lungs, tongue, mouth, etc, etc, 3) the Great and Mythical Jesus came upon a fig tree, Jesus was hungry but the Fig tree bore no fruit so he cursed it, 4) Moses raised his staff and the waters of the Red Sea parted until the Hebrews had ALL crossed via the wet and very soggy sea bed, then God caused the waters to flood back in and drowned the pursuing Egyptians, horses and all, really nice, cruel, sadistic move there God imo.

Default to Atheism - The Catholic Thing
Triphid comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Atheism is NOT simply a 'default' position, imo it IS a position that some choose/elect to assume ONCE they have come to the realisation that the dogma they have been fed is nothing more than pure fiction, fantasy, etc, etc.
I went shopping today (Sunday)! To several places.
Triphid comments on Sep 6, 2020:
Back in the days when religion held 'sway' here in Australia I remember there being what was colloquially known as the "6 o'clock Swill" at hotels where the patrons where required by Law to cease drinking at 6 pm sharp because of a similar reason. Plus ALL Hotels and Clubs where closed tight shut on Sunday mornings everywhere within the town/city limits UNTIL after 1.00pm on Sundays. Many a local family would have the usual 'Sunday Lunch' then get in to the family car and head out for a 'Sunday Drive' to the nearest hotel that was well and truly outside the town/city limits. The kids would get a 'Pub Raspberry' or 'Pub Squash' to drink and a packet of potato chips and the parents would all sit back and enjoy a beer or two. Happily, for now at least, things here have changed for the better and Pubs and Clubs are open on Sundays. There used to be a similar thing with Supermarkets here as well but now that too has gone by the wayside.

" Do Not Question Authority," Why not? If we don't question then, A) We never learn anything, B) Sheep never question, they merely follow along with the rest of the flock, C) Believers NEVER dare question the Authority of the Church/Priest, etc, hence they are so often nicknamed as being "Sheeple." i'd much rather be labelled as being "a Wolf' than a "Sheeple" any day, hence I shall always question no matter what.

I think IF you look deep enough and with unclouded eyes you may well find that Atheists and Agnostic, for the greater part, are the "Silent ones" working in the backgrounds simply because they desire NO publicity, etc, etc, they do it because it IS the right thing to do.

religion is answers that can not be questioned.
Triphid comments on Sep 3, 2020:
I tend to disagree with some points made here. Religions REFUSE to be questioned and purport, incorrectly I might add, that they have all the answers which SHOULD NEVER be either doubted or questioned. Philosophy offers up questions, ideas, thoughts, etc, etc, that, should someone wish to answer, then they are most welcome to do and ,basically, that is how Human understanding and the Sciences came into being.

It seems like I saw this sign for 30 years when I was driving to work.
Triphid comments on Sep 2, 2020:
LOL, love it. Our City Council has a lot of similar signs but they used to use one in particular that read, "End of Work Ahead" until some local wag (comedian) decided to add to it by painting the words " How can it end when Council Workers never seem to actually have started work around here in the first place." He/she may have a bit wordy but 100% correct because our Council has a policy, so it seems, that it takes 3 people to decide IF there hole in the road is actually a hole, one person to spray the perimeter of the offending hole with their 'magic' white paint in the hope that it vanishes and if the 'magic paint' fails to work then it takes a total of approx. 10-15 workers, 4-6 pieces of heavy machinery ( trucks, diggers and road-graders, etc,), 6-12+ weeks to rip up the tarmac, level out the ground surface, replace the tarmac and during all that time the section of street/road is completely closed off to usage. And, btw, I am NOT joking.
Here’s a question.
Triphid comments on Sep 2, 2020:
Sorry but you lost me at the " something to believe in" bit and again when you commented that " I know a lot of Atheists have problems with the meaninglessness of life.....," Imho, you are either attempting to be a Troll here OR are somewhat misled on what Atheists think, need and understand. Atheists, many of us btw, once followed the religious dogmas UNTIl we actually read the bible and discovered it to be 100% meaningless, irrelevant and utterly useless. That is when we shed the dogmas that abound aplenty, became true Free-Thinking Human Beings and discovered for ourselves that LIFE is not meaningless, it is wonderful, varied, sometimes dull, uninteresting, boring BUT it IS Life and it IS as good or bad as YOU choose to make it for yourself. Most religions, the 3 main Abrahamic derived ones especially, seek only to teach that Life is something that has to endured until Death comes along and relieves you from its drudgery and takes you the 'After-life' where you will finally gain eternal happiness BUT that is ONLY on the Proviso that YOU believe in their God/s and worship them/him/her/it in both life and the After-Life. Whereas we worship No God/s, we live the life we are born to live we because we know that at some time we will die, cease to exist completely except in those memories we have left in the minds of others and that IS the Be All and End All of it. So, WHY I ask, would we need a 'New Dogma' in the first place when we have had more than enough of the old Religious dogmas force-fed to us before and rejected them?

" Religious Rights, Religious Freedoms," we hear it almost screamed out day after day non-stop BUT what about the Rights and Freedoms due to everyone else or are they of little or no concern since they do NOT fit neatly into the Faithfool Folds? Why is it that the 'religious' can discriminate freely and the rest of society can not? Are we, the non-believers, not being subjected to discrimination? Are we, the non-believers, the LGBT communities, those hoping and planning for 'inter-racial' marriages, etc, etc, just lesser humans to those Faithfools and thus deserve to be discriminated against and persecuted so? Where, exactly, do these Anti-discrimination Laws draw the line on WHO may or may NOT be discriminated against?

Triphid comments on Sep 2, 2020:
Oh boy, oh boy, just listened to that 'Preacher' rabbit on about his preferences, etc, in women, is it any wonder that no Educated woman would touch him with a 40' pole. He IS a full on Misogynistic, self-centred, self-righteous, arrogant, self-absorbed Arse-hole of the First Order bar none. His so-called opinions/comments come direct from his beloved buybull which states that ALL women shall be subservient to the men, silent unless spoken to and GIVEN permission to reply, must NEVER be permitted to become educated or to educate the MALE children of the household, may NEVER be permitted to speak out loud in Church, must worship SEPARATELY from men and ARE the Property of their Husband plus a few hundred or so other rules and gender restrictions. But then again, based upon listening to him speak, I'd doubt that his level of education and abilities of oration, etc, are only surpassed by a) his shoe size, and, b) the length of his penis.

Well even though Tony, (Budgie-smugglers, Raw-Onion Muncher, Rabbit Turd ) Abbot was as mad as cut snake I do agree with his comparison in some respect BECAUSE there ARE many of us who are NOT whinging and Moaning about the Covid-19 Restrictions, etc, for the sake of saving others. Ergo, I'd say that that comparison MAY BE the very first ever intelligent thing ScaBBot has uttered in his entire life thus far.

The best we can all do atm is to be patient, observe the rules and TRY to save as many lives as possible.

Trumpeting loudly with thunderous laughter, its ears flapping crazily and its whole great body shaking madly, Adam confronts the elephant and asks, " Okay, so now you've had a good laugh would you mind telling me what's so funny?" The elephant replies, " Well I don't know about all the other animals BUT it makes me laugh to think of just how you're going to be able to gather enough grass to feed yourself with such puny little trunk as that hanging from a place so far away from your mouth."

7 Things that PROVE God is Real is an article written six years ago by J.
Triphid comments on Aug 30, 2020:
Oh dear, yet another 'piss weak' attempt at proving a complete and utter negative. When, oh when will they learn I ask. Firstly, ANY claim made WITHOUT empirically tried and tested supportive evidence is therefore nothing more than a FALSE claim at best. Now let us discuss a few salient points offered by this 'piss weak' claim, 1) God, their Invisible, Imaginary Sky Daddy 'creates/weaves' every single baby in the womb of a woman. Well, that does NOT ring true either biologically or biblically, etc, etc, GIVEN that it WAS this self-same God who, itself, CURSED the women to suffer the pains of birth, a monthly menstrual cycle and to damned in its sight for ALL Eternity for simply tasting the fruit of a Tree. Now, how many of these miraculous woven creations, i.e. babies, are miscarried each and every year, are they just cases of Gods imperfect weaving skills, how many babies/children, the Created Weavings of God, die every day worldwide from hunger, diseases, etc, etc, that this God created also? Are they just merely a kind of God's collateral 'damage?' 2) 'A personal relationship with God,' How does one have a 'personal relationship' with something/someone that is, a) described as being Non-corporeal, beyond ALL Time, Space and Physicality, can neither be seen, touched, heard, etc, etc? 3) This God of which the article ATTEMPTS to prove of its existence also creates and cause Weather, Storms, Thunder, Rain, etc, etc, then why does it/she/him, a) cause droughts, famines, floods etc, etc, to ravage the lands and peoples it/she/him has also created? Yep, makes a whole lot sense to me, NOT. When compared to the myriad of Gods, Goddesses, Deities, etc, etc, that were assumed to precede it/her/him in Human history. For example, the Gods, etc, of the Ancient Greeks were almost as human as those who worshiped them, they 'toyed' with humans and human affairs at every opportunity that became available BUT they also aided humans in their quests and attempted achievements, not just sat back and did Sweet Fuck All. Give me a relationship with someone who is tangible, visible, provable and 100% REAL any time over something that is the ENTIRE opposite.
