(Revelation 2:22-23


Perhaps the proper meaning of the above text can only be known to those who are not trying to quanitify life with a broken mind. How big is your subconscious mind? You know, the part of your mind you are not listening to consciously, ya that part.




So I guess either way, its pretty grim.


That is in the eye of the beholder.


What if your own truth needs to utilize 400,000,000,000 pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, and your fears prevent you from looking at no more than 2,000 pieces at a time?

Self preservation introduces a neccesity for fear.

Fear of the unknown is fear.

Fear the unknown enough leads to being too afraid to know the unknown.

One message. That is it. Your Fear breaks your mind, compartmentalizes your fears.

All unknown is naturally feared. If it is naturally feared, then it is suppressed subconsciously. How much can your subconscious suppress? Everyone finds out, or dies trying.

Whenever Im am confronted with something like this, which I will never find an answer to, that will have people arguing for generations, I remember the quote in the film "Devils Advocate" starring Al Pacino...

Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it.

He gives man INSTINCTS! He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusment, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition.
It's the goof of all time.

Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste! Taste, don't swallow. Ahaha! And when you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, f**kin' a$$ off. He's a tight-a$$! He's a sadist! He's an absentee landlord. Worship THAT? NEVER!"

yeah that movie is great >...LOL

but another funny thing is ...sooner or later EVERYONE who is so proud to refuse to worship God, eventually comes to a bad situation will think "why God ? Help me God..."... so typical...

even after 9/11 i dealt with many atheists and followers of other religions, and the common question was "why did God let this happen ?"...to Atheists I asked back : " God, what God ? How can someone ho doesnt exhist be blamed ?" and to the followers of the other religions I asked : " Ask your Own God...he's suppose to be the real one."

Whenthe "mud" hits the fans, everyone calls out for God. In fact ... over 60% of inmates are either converst to Christianity ... When they locked up they all want Jesus...

My personal thougths after 9/11 were "Evil B*s*ards".

I believe that peoples faith or lack of it is tested at tough times.

I dont believe in the god that mainstream religions believe in but I do believe in a God and Goddess. If something bad happens to me in my life then I dont go and ask them why. I ask them to help me fix it, or feel better, or have courage, or give me strength.

I think it is down to how strong your faith is, or how strong your lack of faith is when confronted by something terrible. If youre doing the opposite to what you thought you believed then you need to look at your beliefs again.

and thats waht Christianity is all about ... note I said Christianity ...not protestanism... the doifference is they pary to God in the name of Jesus, and in your case you pray to the God and the Goddess.

now, does your religion say anything about what happens to non-beleivers ?
