Okay, you know what??
Here is what it is:
We do not effectively communicate with each other. Perhaps it is a language barrier, but there is certainly a complete inability to 'hear' me, and/or
a stubborn refusal to acknowledge that your 'picture' of "my place" is based on hype and exaggeration.
You've been trashing the West since you arrived here on ATS. I have repeatedly explained to you the reality of how it is in "my place," but you
simply don't listen. You don't adjust your bias to reflect what you've learned from people who actually LIVE here...
you simply keep blaming a 'stereotype' and painting our entire nation as a bunch of drunken heathens.
You know what I was just doing? I was JUST NOW, outside, talking to a police officer who came to my house AT MY REQUEST to discuss with her some of
my concerns with this neighborhood...with my NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS, and their unstable, suspicious activities which include intermittent gunfire and
comings and goings at all hours of the day and night. We CARE. We don't WANT that sort of lawless, ignorant, criminal element - can you not fathom
YES - there is "ghetto behavior" in the USA, in the ghettos. Drugs, rape, homicide, robbery, carjacking, truancy, etc....
it GENERALLY stays in the ghetto - when it starts oozing into the nice, quiet, respectable neighborhoods WE CALL THE POLICE.
It's a partnership between police and the community where I live - not everywhere in the US, but in my small city, yes.
Yet you persist in condemning everyone who is not Muslim or in "your place."
Will those next door adults get 'karma' at some point, and be held accountable for their actions and the harm they're doing? Yes, I'm certain they
As for what the soul "is" - you saying it's not "part" of the universe is completely bizarre, and makes you look like you have a learning disorder. I
was raised with religion, pal. I was taught morals. As I got older and educated, I realized that organized Abrahamic religions are based on very
sketchy, questionable sources, and that they have the potential to escalate disagreement into slaughter and hatred.
Thats a product of being raised in material oriented and observation based reality believing culture.
I don't know what a soul is, I however notice a lot of problems if its assumed to be a part of Universe.
See, this makes no sense. It's word salad. We, and everything seen and unseen are PART of the universe. Every one of us here who give actual
thoughts and participate in lucid discussions is a REAL PERSON. With a SOUL. We are PART of the universe.Unless, of course, YOU are a figment of my
imagination or a paid shill, YOU and YOUR SOUL are also part of the universe. The filthy allegations that you continue to drape all over 'the West'
WILL catch up with you, and that will be fine with me. Your logic is supremely faulty - it is as unreal as Ken Ham the Young Earth Creationist's
assertion that the Earth is 6,000 years old.
I doubt you even knew about the 'debate' between him and Bill Nye, an award-winning "Science Guy," but if you'd watch it, you'd see a nearly
charicature example of extreme fundamentalists who take NOTHING but the Bible as 'evidence'.
Anyway, it is clear that there is no hope to continue trying with you. I've felt that for months now - but kept trying, in the interest of open
communication and mutual 'learning' about each other. I give up.
There is evidence and it's very possible that there is an afterlife without a "God."
Your weird logic and grasping for 'refutations' makes me tired. Your religion makes me nervous. And your ignorant ranting against the West makes me
Way to go.....a total breakdown in 'peace talks', compliments of logical7, for the benefit of all of us who are free-thinkers. Thanks for that; for
providing irrefutable evidence that you have no intention of 'building a bridge'. If we were in a meeting I would have walked out by now. Your ideas
are preposterous - your sense of 'self' is warped, and your perception of "reality" is beyond neurotic.
Souls are our very essence. They are real. They are part of the universe.
And my discussion with you is over.
