People wonder where they come from?

And where they are going?



I came from West Vancouver to my other home in the sky.

faith, believing something for no good reason

Sorry, but how depressing. We don't fully understand the good reasons why humans developed the belief forming processes that we have, but we're so addicted to believing in our own omniscience, that we're forced to believe that there's no good reason why humans form the beliefs that we do, instead of accepting that we just don't understand the good reasons :-(

 Right... I say that the whole thing is made up, and is unnecessary for life...

i.e. invented...

i.e. ... you can make up the rest

i.e. 'humans developed the belief forming processes that we have'

Thanks Jingy! Perfect example. I make up the belief that there must be some good reason that we make up beliefs, possibly transcending the awesome omnipotence of my own intellect. That whole sciency thing that thee are reasons why we've evolved our capabilities is a bunch of nonsense!

I've climbed on cliffs that look remarkably like those in the painting...

Here we go again, lol!

I am not sure if I want to engage in this discussion again. So, to summarize my beliefs:

1. Even if god/gods exists, nobody has any idea what that entity wants from us. (Can a dog understand the mind of his master?)

2. Organized religions are dangerous to nonbelievers.

That,s it.

Sorry, y'all...

a new one will not replace the old one in a million years...

I got a breath of fresh air today when I found the old thread...

second repubs thread said something to the tune of...

You will have to pry this thread from my cold dead hands to make me nuke it.



It can be said this has proven to be untrue.

It's whatever you want it to be if you want one in your mind.

For some, maybe a break from school or something. Or maybe you went to Sunday school on a weekend and thought you had something to look forward to. I don't know.

Views into Glacier National Park. Lots of people call that God's country but to me it's always been just as much mine, or ours.

That is What the secret places still look like in high summer
some where I Bet that spot exists
to slip back is the place Devine ?
Divinely riven? What about
The quality of the light
The painters eye his perspective
Is skill and talent God given
Or with the increase in translucent
pigments the chemicals that make up
Paint just the forward progress of science ?.....


I should not hit save but some thoughts are fleeting
truth

Ed thank you what is that painting's title
Who is the Hudson valley school artist who
painted it?
Will I see This on the art thread?
I have never opened that.

of course jGill reads and writes and climbs better than me/I that needs grammar check

it is either Real Time w/ Bill Maher or here
I'll be back after some TV

there is no net

he's THE MAN
when I started I was
Thinking Edgar ?
