Morning folks, why aren't we all getting ready for the church this morning I wonder? ;-)
Comment: Unsolicited advise: try to check out our members' profile first before we make any reaction. It can save you your time and your breath.
Relationship Loss
Comment: Going by your story, you seem to have lost nothing at all. You even gained the respect of your two kids - what else matters?

Did I hear you say, "Good riddance?"
I want a path to follow though I don't believe how to find meaning w out a god?
Comment: This is definitely the place for you, this is your community, a community of intellectuals and well-meaning persons. We’re all here to learn from each other become better persons. Nobody’s got a monopoly of wisdom. Learn from us. Learn with us.

Be patient and be tolerant and be open-minded. The questions you want to ask are here and have been answered by the members. Just go through them.

We can only give you our opinions, comments and suggestions.

We cannot tell you how to live your life. Only you can do that - if you believe in yourself.
Do you believe in ghosts or similar paranormal entities?
Comment: Scientific research is still going on to disprove and debunk the numerous reports or even theories on this pseudoscience. Using methodical science against pseudoscience cloaked in scientific lingo.

Well, they use to say "where there's smoke there's fire." Kinda fiery entertainment, so, who you gonna call?"
Reconciling "belief" systems with people on the "agnostic-atheist" spectrum. I have found that many of my friends who identify as agnostic or atheist, have an ongoing conflict regarding their "belief" system. Either/or seem to debate each other to asset who is or may be correct. This banter exists beyond these individual's belief systems. Is it a natural or genuine trait of people who are not traditional delivers to argue, at a baseline personality level, to try and assert their points of views with others? Even when you don't really believe, is there still an inherent need to proselytize and bring people around to your way of thinking? ...
Comment: It is a natural and genuine trait of people regardless which side of the belief fence you are in. That's human nature.
So where do our members live? Check out these maps that show the average locations. It's interesting to see that we're popular in Morocco. Thought the bible belt is home only to bible thumpers?
Comment: I live in Manila (Mla), Philippines (PH) I'm around 10 to 12 hours ahead of most of you guys in international standard time.

. . . soooooooooooo, where's the map of Southeast Asia, huh? LOL
A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. “I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you.” “Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?” “I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said. The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.” Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful ...
Comment: That was a wonderful story, bro, I just sent it to my two sons, 19 and 8 years old.

Let's have more of those stories, please. Just keep 'em coming!
Hot button question! Do you agree or disagree with sex outside marriage?
Comment: Sex education is part of grade school curriculum, howd you think they'll apply their knowledge - by singing "I have two hands" or "Mary had a little lamb?" . . . how on earth did Mary had a little lamb?
How can we test pre-life selection by souls?
Comment: First of all the information from that book with regards our souls is somewhat skewed. Could you please give us, or me, the title and the author of that book? I'd like to play in their turf. Thank you.

One way to test pre-life selection is if we could safely cross over and come back the same person that we are.

Your thoughts on Hyperianism?
Comment: If you make enough research you certainly can cull some "tidbits of logic" on anything.

There was an article with regards that "mirage theory" posted some days ago.

As I've always said, religion is the most successful business enterprise in the world.
Any conspiracy theorists here?
Comment: To quote Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro): "You talkin' to me?"

The Illuminati Conspiracies will touch on JFK's assasination, the WWII gold and "the wealth of nations", the creature from that resort island in Glynn County, and practically every "wonderful" event in the last 200 years of human history.

=====================================================================

By "wonderful" I mean it leaves you wondering and asking a lot of questions, he-he! Here in the Philippines we're fond of playing around ( or maybe fooling around ) the english grammar, like: "Hey don't do that, that's dangerful!" - meaning it's dangerous or full of danger. That's strictly Filipino humor. My apologies.
When does hope become delusion?
Comment: When we keep hoping and praying for something that defies logic we delude ourselves into believing.

From Cher:

What am I supposed to do?
Sit around and wait for you?
And I can't do that
There's no turning back
I need time to move on
Cause I've had time to think it through
And maybe I'm too good for you

From Survivor:

Hope still burns eternal
We're the keeper of the flame.
Is it a "Wonderful Life?
Comment: For my dad, 89, it's the best Christmas movie he's ever watched and has been watching for the past 70 years.

I'm not a fan of Frank Capra and I see a lot of me in Jimmy Stewart and his character George.

Maybe I'll just watch Bruce Willis' 1986 Die Hard film for the nth time this Christmas.
My dog says that humans are crazy! Is she right or just barking up the wrong tree?
Comment: Dogs came down here from that very bright star Canis Major and they're just waiting for the command from their leader, the powerful Greater Dane, to interchange the first and last letters of their name. And she maybe right to say that humans are crazy - I in particular.
Are you still able to appreciate religious art, or does the religious message prevent you from appreciating it? For example, would you still like a Christian band that plays really good music, or a religious film that you think is beautifully shot? ...
Comment: I'd like to borrow a line from kiramea: "As for art/music...... art transcends religion . . ."
Should forgiveness always be given?
Comment: Not always . . . I may forgive but I certainly will not forget. I've got a big storehouse for that so it's not a burden. I have stiff neck and find it hard for me to turn the other cheek.
