So. A panicked scramble as you all distance yourself from the heretic. The embrace of materialism/scientism - the flat out rejection of spiritual or metaphysical reality, leads to a dead end. 

No.....

 

Im hanging onto the slim chance that you are a gold star wind up merchant - it tickles me to maintain that belief, however slim the probability 😂

Not sure what the relevance of one billion people who shit on the streets and worship cows is on the subject though?

 

That Andrew, is a champion retort 😂

Stick to writing fiction hairy.
That story about the tree surgeon and the cult was quite good.
I read the whole thing, really enjoyed it.
Got any others?

It's not that simple, Uranus must be inline with the outer ring of Saturn on a full moon and with the shimmering star of bovinus excrementus to the North. 

 

It's as ridiculous as thinking a virgin gave birth to a baby from some dude in the sky who was then happy to have him mercilessly murdered only to save him afterwards. Its all horseshit imo. 

Ffs we don't even really fully understand how a tree pumps it's water and nutrients. 90% of our oceans are unexplored yet we think we know where we go when we die?! Madness! 

Statistically speaking the vast majority of all religions are 100% wrong as you can only believe in one, therefore excluding all others. 

As a species I guess we take more comfort in these funked up bedtime stories than we can from accepting the somewhat horrifying truth that we don't actually know what, if anything, happens after death. I mean, what happens to all the animals we eat, is there a steak and eggs heaven or are we that different because of our rapid evolution that we don't simply die and rot like every other thing that lives? 

Far far too much time, money and energy is expended by people searching for the unobtainable when we should be enjoying this brief spark of consciousness we are so privileged (somehow) to have. On that note, I'm off for a walk with the dog!

...No! On the subject of religion I can't respect anyones opinion save Atheism.

 

Its everyones right to believe whatever they want (as demonstrated by plenty on here) but the idea that I have to respect the viewpoint of the misguided or hard of thinking is laughable. 

That's fine, Joe. But you would agree that their opinions on matters other than the subjects you find ridiculous, are potentially worthy of your respect, no? Like the Muslim surgeon who has an opinion about your injured knee, let's say? A person in their entirely, is more than their religious beliefs. I don't respect the socialist ideology of certain politicians, for instance, but I respect their political nous as individual, if they demonstrate it.

 

You mentioned I had "jabbered on" about homoeopathic preparations being the cure for certain of my ailments. Now, the use of the word "jabbered" shows you utterly rejected my report, which was a straightforward description of the various experiments I made to treat my ailments, which resulted in success. Hardly jabbering. Its like you had an emotional reaction to a matter-of-fact personal story. I suppose you would reply "Well, but it can't be true, because it's impossible"... Yet the experiences of millions prove it to be possible.

 

I'm not trying to push a religion on you, far from it. Just stating the truth. And it is the truth. Homoeopathy did cure my problems. Might cure yours, might not, won't know if you never give it a chance. And one can entertain astrology and see potentialities before they occur. Only by putting aside prejudice and experimenting can you discover if it has any value - for you. This isn't religion, it's experimentation. I would suggest your commitment to atheism is actually closer to a religion then my penchant for experimenting.

 

Ridiculing a person as a whole, for their experiences, is akin to religious intolerance. Denying observable reality if it doesn't conform to the doctrine. By reflexively shutting out the potential that some things you don't understand could still be real, you're only diminishing yourselves.

 

Now, if it makes you feel better to roundly dismiss me as a "complete looper" or similar, I'll understand (though obviously not agree). My clients wouldn't agree either. They have trusted me for decades with their house keys, care of their propery, several sleep soundly in homes I have built, and nothing has fallen down or blown away, yet. Point being, my life choices have been informed by my relationship with reality, based on my actual experiences. A model, if you will, of which I have leaked just a few aspects, which you consider insane. Yet, the outcome of my choices have been positive. I have no debt, own property, have money in the bank, a clean license, no criminal record, reliable motor, abundant leasure time, good health, no serious enemies, a devoted wife and not much baggage. I find enjoyment in my work and am no man's slave. Even this Covid stuff hasn't really effected my life, based on wise decisions made long ago. Rural, physical, self sufficient, diverse modes of income and hence resilience...in brief, my reality model, which is somewhat fluid, has served me well.

 

We cannot know a man or woman by what they contribute to an internet forum. But we can gain knowledge of ourselves by observing how we react to the very unimportant stuff they write. Every phone is a mirror.....be well.

Nowhere did I say that just because a person was religious all of their opinions were null and void. Don't twist my words, it's boring.

 

Do you know what they call alternative medicine that's been proven to work?

Ill jump on that one!

Whatever time you choose. It's your life after all. 

Not that all our choices are choices as such, so many others make their choices at the same time that these choices not only affect your options from which to choose, they affect the choices themselves and the implementation and outcomes of these choices. Not really much of a choice then, is it?! 

 

Hope that helped!
