General Religious Discussion / Re: I don't have enough faith to be an atheist

Honestly, I do feel like there's a difference—the difference is that now that I am conscious, I don't want to lose that and return to a state of nothingness and unconsciousness.  The thought of being here, and then experiencing nothing, is something that I find really really unnerving.

Do you have problems sleeping?  Or do you get through it by just assuming you're going to wake up?

Finders keepers

A guy buys a grill at an auction and finds an amputated leg in it.  Shortly thereafter, the legs owner asks for it back and a tug of war over the limb ensues.  This was a documentary.  It was very well done and in the end, I felt empathy for both guys.

anything can be decent breaded and fried.   ;)

I've never tried "British bacon" or that vegetarian becan before, but I have to say British bacon doesn't look near as crispy to me.

I never got why bacon was supposedly a bad thing in the Bible (if I recall correctly something about pigs being unclean?), I've loved bacon since I was a kid.  I guess it's primarily enforced by Judaism.

CD,, are you any further in reading the bible?

Wrap it in bacon before you cook it  :P

I've tried that, tried making a roll out of it stuffed with cheese mixture, etc.  still one of the most pointless meats on the planet.   The only useful thing I've made out of it is schnitzel because anything can be decent breaded and fried.   ;)

it would be entertaining if we could see these "satanic rituals".    Now, there can be rituals that claims to be satanic, but unless we get the big guy to come, how can we know?


I think I've mentioned this before but I had a internship at the National Air and Space Museum.  I worked with the spacesuit collection, and I had my hands on Apollo suits, Mercury suits (which are turning orange from the degradation of their silver layer), and Gemini suits, along with the experimental hard suits.   The Apollo suits are filthy, looks like the guys were rolling around up there.  Poor ol' skep has not one scrap of evidence to support his false claims and there are piles of evidence that the landings happened.  And he keeps making more and more false claims and failing again and again to support them.   It's like watching a three year old trying to get attention.

Old Huck got that wrong on so many levels.  Surprised he has not jumped on the transgender bathroom issue (maybe he has and I missed it).

PS - Has he got his gig back on FOX News yet?

You're wrong, eh!

Fiction taught me English. When I moved to America in 2007 (or somewhere near that time), I knew very little English. Yes, I could write it, kind of. But I hardly spoke it.

I got hooked on so many books in the library. Sure, sometimes it would be cool astronomy books and science things. But most times, it was a good fiction book. The main ones that come to mind are "Magic Treehouse", "Charlie Bone", "Percy Jackson", and so many more that I've forgotten over the years. Without English, I would be literally super far behind in everything.

Right now, I'm reading a book about Faraday and Maxwell, and how they came to do what they did. Sometimes I just need a break from it. However, I still have the desire to acquire the knowledge that this book provides.

There is an enjoyment you get from creating fiction, as well. For me, it's about conveying embarrassing personal lessons in cathartic yet anonymous ways.

I would read the Bible more if it were as interesting as stories about Greek gods. Too bad it's fucking boring most of the time.
