Thomas the Rhymer BS: One compelling reason for a god? (353* d) RE: BS: One compelling reason for a god? 03 Apr 07


Bill D... then you are going to be 'out of the way' then..?

Mrrzy... Sorry to disappoint... but I actually believe what I wrote.

Amos... Where did I say anything about religion? A fitting metaphor would be to relate a religious sect to an internet browser... and (crosses himself) for the sake of a severely stretched metaphor, take God to be the internet. The various browsers are all in competition for your usage, so they don't 'get along'... and yet they provide somewhat similar services. We take our pick, and try to stay out of the scuffle...

Eventually, it is each person's honest and personal relationship with God that matters, and that is evident in the course of history, as well as in my personal life... I see it as a major step forward for many, many reasons... insofar as it establishes a common and shared discourse on subjects that touch and effect the welfare of all of us... and is based in conscience and kindness. Without this basis in mutual belief in God... It's quite possible that our revolutionary forefathers would have been hard pressed to create such ground breaking testaments to the saga of the quest for human freedom.

Nickhere... Thanks for the great joke! I loved it!
