That would be because you missed the last meeting gas.

Zod, CH, rodeo, and I decided to make the cabal stronger by collecting dues on the 15th of the month, rather than at the end.
Too much money spent on beer, not enough on inane message board propaganda to make kurb and rhino mad.


Thats just it.
Doesn't make me mad at all really.
I for one will be the first to tell you religion has been used as a tool by people for centuries. From Crusades to Suicide Bombers. But to say/imply it is simply nothingness, and those who have some kind of faith simply fools is pretty insulting in the worst kind of way.

I honestly don't get the hubbub. If he is/was a believer and didn't pray, who cares? Reminds me of the joke about the guy caught on the roof of a house during a flood.


10-4 on that. Doesn't have to be a maricle/skill/luck/aliens thing. Let it be to each what it is to them.

And for cookingwithgas to say he isnt atheist is a joke. Whta open mindedness, have you ever had for any kind of belief. If so you sure dont express it in your posts. I would have prayed while landing the plane. I pray about everything. I pray while Im on here. I pray while Im driving, I pray while Im working, I pray when I get up, I pray when I go to bed, I pray wehn someone on here who is hurting needs the encouragement that someone is taking the time to care about them and pray. I know prayer works, Ive seen pray work. Pray isnt a magic lamp though and I also believe that Gods ways are bigger than my ways and I will never understand why some live and sonme die until I ask him when I get to where I believe I will be when I die. Prayer whether you believe it works or not gives hope to people that sometimes have none. Is that a bad thing? Is that answer honest enough for you? No Im sure your gonna disect it and tell me how it would be so more itellectual honest to belief that nothing is in control of the universe but to me that doesnt make sense. I dont care if the pilot prayed or not, he did a wonderful job and thats ok.

It still amazes me that people on both sides of the religion debate can claim to have any definitive answer on faith.

To me...

It's based per person.

Your faith in whatever is what you make it. I have tried to make it a point to never force my beliefs on another person. I have had muslim, athiest, wiccan friends all my life. I've tried to learn from each of them.

If they ask me or seek me out, or appear to need something faithbased, I am more than happy to share with them. Sterotype Baptist will tell me I am doing wrong by not seeking out people, I tell him that's not his decision to make.

The similarities in religions are startling when you look into them a little. Some going as far as to reference figures from each other.

Your faith is your own to have. Do what you think is right, believe in what you think is right.

And I would argue that religion has enjoyed a "hands off" clemency for FAR too long, as anything regarded as off limits to discussion, ridicule, scrutiny, etc. is dangerous and has limitless potential for abuse in your above named ways.

Sunlight is a great disinfectant.
