Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith, I consider a capacity for it terrifying and absolutely vile. It’s an incredible con job when you think about it, to believe something now in exchange for something after death. Even corporations with their reward systems don’t try to make it posthumous.
Look! I apologize for being ignorant to you earlier. Maybe I do take my beliefs to far like everyone else once in a while. :/ Next time I shouldn't read Ayn Rand before I deiced to reply to a thread.
At least believe in yourself. Sure you can account for your physical state of being in a pragmatic sense, but you don't seem to have any notion or connection with your own "spirit" or hold a belief you are really the miracle you are.
So Israel was created in 1 day? Fine...even if it's debatable. It took days (weeks?) to draw up their constitution, so you could say it took that long to create the country. If you consider signing the constitution the moment the country comes into existence, creating Israel only took around 30sec. In the end, it doesn't matter really...
I never questioned your belief, it's pretty evident your blindly believing. All I'm saying is that this belief is based on pure speculation without any legitimate proof or evidence. If your belief makes you happy, by all means, you have the right to be happy. But the whole "believe like I do, or you'll burn in hell" statements are beyond crazy and certainly don't help to put your belief in a good light.
That's OK Randy. Flood control is in effect, but now it is my turn to do the same with regard to him or her or it whatever. (and now they'll probably remove this post too :lol - those pesky mods.
