Being is acting. The first act of a being is existence.

When a being acts it cannot be otherwise than self-promotion.
Present company is not exempted from this metaphysical necessity.
However, there is self-promotion and self-promotion.
I am here to promote my ideas about religions and other issues brought up here. And I try to have something to say in any and all threads, that I think to be of interest however slight to any posters here.
There are posters here promoting a religion, or defending one, or promoting also their own thinking about religions and other matters -- just like me.
But I believe that all of us here as we promote ourselves we all keep an open mind to see the logic and sense in each others' postings.
On my part, I have no religion to promote or to defend. Sometimes being a postgraduate Catholic I try to explain what exactly the Catholic Church teaches as I knew from my own background in Catholic educational institutions; just like as I know something about car troubleshooting, I try to tell people what is the trouble in a car stalling on the roads, according to my own knowledge and experience.
Thanks, Brian, for this reminder.
