    Do you think it was more of a beefy fart, or an sulfurous eggy fart?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    So space is delicious? I can't say I'm surprised.

    Ahhh so that's where all the pirates have gone off to. There must be another Pirates of the Caribbean movie in order to explain their sudden advancement in the spacecraft industry.

    Sometimes piracy is the best course.

    • 7. Strong atheist. "I know there is no God, with the same conviction as Jung knows there is one."
    I would say a 6 on this scale. I have less of a problem with the god question and far more of a problem with religion. Not one of them has gotten it right, not even close and they've all had plenty of time to work on it.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I USED to practice, but not any more, simply because it no longer resonated with the path I wanted to be on. Religion is a tricky thing: it can be unifying or divisive, politically motivated or spiritually empowering, and loving or punishing, and often, it's ALL of that ALL at the same time. So I stepped out.

    There are ways to feel included, to feel love and be loved, to have a sense of purpose, and to become fearless, without religion. The path I'm on is one of refining. I'm constantly taking out what no longer serves my growth and putting in what does, and sometimes what serves me might be a teaching from a particular religion, and sometimes it might mean letting something that was once important to me go.

    If you need religion in your life, and it helps, then that is the path you need to be on. If it's beginning to feel a little constrictive and tight around the throat, and you're stuck in a perpetual cycle of fear, then maybe it's not serving you. There are things beyond culture, and beyond structures, and there is YOU, and YOUR truth, which you need to find.

    Religion as a consumer choice in a buyers market.

    Heaven forbid people have a choice. You know, I really would like to have been alive during the 30 years' war. It would have been a blast.
