AlexO! You've put your anti-kool-aid partner (ncdrawl) in a difficult spot. He shares your contempt of the singing bowls, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't buy into evolution as the last word in creation theory.
What makes you say that? Do you know the guy personally? Besides, I said it to illustrate a point.
You've got to get your team into a huddle so you don't call different plays. Makes it hard to keep score.
There's no score to keep. There will always be PT Barnum and suckers will be born every day. That's just the way it goes. I miss DUP. He really kept a lid on the singing bowls. You wouldn't hear a peep out of them.
Not really Alex.
I'd kick DUP's self created and maintained ignorance square in the balls, along with yours.
But I've really decided that I don't have time for your weakness in intellectual contemplation or your physical and mental limits in listening skills -- that you try to pass off as the enforced limits of what exists in this world.
Smart, intelligent, THINKING people understand that their personal limits do >>NOT<< decide what is the limit of the world. Overtly religious fanatics, Neocons, and other boorish inbred types attempt to do that (limit the world) all the time, via trying to slay any part of the world that does not fit their world view, and wiser folks understand their limits and try to keep an open mind. The idiots just get led around by the nose...by smarter people that are more evil than they are.
I'll say this one last time, hoping you'll get it.
Take your black and white world..and fuck right off.
Get the hell off of my chair and - out of my house. Go chase your OWN dog around with a stick, while you try to beat your own sense of what is right - into it, but stay the fuck out of my life.
I apologize for the over the top response, but apparently -- you still don't get it.
If you were smart, you'd ask yourself why these things work--and investigate.
Instead you are complete dumbass..and dismiss them out of hand.
Good. In that moment, I leave you on the ground far behind me..as a crying confused monkey. Humans think. Monkeys get angry and strike out against that which they don't understand-a panicked animal response. Your response to what you do not understand is identical..and with the sheen of civility and communication that the monkey cannot commit to.
If you think I'm calling you a talking monkey and not a human ---You'd be right.
Not far from DUP, you is. But, I think you are far smarter than that -and owe yourself more. So stop showing us and yourself your weaknesses. Instead show yourself some strength. Try to turn that corner.
It's all in your mind.
