    Vote to Keep or Expell China Cat Sunflower

    That's true Brian. Some people are just not going to play by the rules and, unfortunately, they can ruin it for the more reasonable majority. I guess you're right. Tis' a shame though.:(

    will peace ever come?

    It all begins with each of us in our own little, isolated, seemingly-insignificant local world. Ghandi changed the world without lifting a single violent finger. But boy is there more work that needs to be done.

    Vote to Keep or Expell China Cat Sunflower

    First of all I have no problem with you at all. I hardly even know you of course (I hope that can change:) ). Jesus wouldn't expell you from the board....we should all strive to be that accepting. I say post away all brothers and sisters. You know....even if someone were to attack someone on...

    Don't apologize. Your post was poignant but...most of all....correct. Tony

    Is Atheism a religion?

    I've always wondered why so many theists are hell-bent on getting atheists to admit that they are practicing a religion. This makes perfect sense to me.

    Is Atheism a religion?

    I agree V. If atheism is a religion, then baldness is a haircolor. I think it was Voltaire who said that we are all atheists in one form or another. When you really think about it, professed atheists just believe in one less God than the rest of us. On a related note, I once read a response...

    In support of the personal God

    Devadatta, You have just articulated one of THE most important collection of ideas I have ever heard expressed in a comparative religions forum. I won't even try to expand upon what you wrote because it can't be improved upon. Bravo, Tony

    I Don't Support the Troops

    HAHAHA!!! President Smirky McFlightsuit is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. If you came up with that one you need to do some professional stand-up. I would buy a ticket. :)

    I Don't Support the Troops

    We can support the troops and not the war. The troops are not to blame. I agree with Q.

    Post-theistic Christianity "Other view"

    What I love about the members of this forum is that you are all able to discuss things as adults and, even when there are misunderstandings, you are further able to clarify statements, listen intently and respond with respect. This dialogue between peoples of differing faiths, opinions...

    I Don't Support the Troops

    Any President who claims to love his troops wouldn't put them into harm's way by placing them in a conflict based upon faulty, cherry-picked intelligence, no ties to 9/11, no weapons of mass destruction (actually they were there in the past b/c the U.S. gave them the weapons to defeat the...

    Homosexuality and Religion

    This post is NOT directed toward anyone here. I am just ranting. :-) One thing I have to say about homosexuality is that there is a shortage of love on this planet....we need all that we can get. There are many (of course not all) Christians who, because of groupthink, feel they are...

    A Naturalistic Approach to Karma & Rebirth

    Hi Daniel! Thanks for your reply. I definitely agree with your comment on tolerating the mystical and transcendental approaches that other Buddhists have concerning Ultimate Reality. According to my POV, I take more of a pragmatic approach to spirituality...if it works (and is wholesome)...

    Post-theistic Christianity "Other view"

    Re: Post-theistic Christianity Thank you lunamoth, I really enjoy everyone's posts. It is so refreshing to be able to discuss controversial viewpoints and not have to feel defensive in any way. I knew I was making a good decision to come to the CR-forum. I agree with you lunamoth that...

    Post-theistic Christianity "Other view"

    Re: Post-theistic Christianity Hello juantoo3, It is a pleasure to meet you. I appreciate your taking the time to respond to my post. I do want to begin by stating that these are my honest opinions and I am certainly not insisting that others see it my way. I don't know how I could make...

    Re: Post-theistic Christianity Hi luna, Thank you for your post. Please don't take my response below as being antagonistic in any way. You articulate your challenges beautifully and I only hope that my feeble answers will mirror your posts in the best way possible. I wish to throw out the...

    Post-theistic Christianity "Other view"

    Re: Post-theistic Christianity Yes lunamoth we are certainly of one mind and heart on this. I don't want to suggest that I was speaking for you when I said that many of us are "believers in exile". I was raised Catholic and I had to go through a long period of deprogramming and atheism before...

    Post-theistic Christianity "Other view"

    Re: Post-theistic Christianity Hi lunamoth...It is a pleasure to meet you. I really can't find any serious areas of disagreement here. I think we are on the same page. A post-theistic Christianity is for us "believers in exile" who simply cannot subscribe any longer to a patriarchal God...
