    @NoOneIKnow
    I don’t stop by the comments section too often, as it seems a lot of vile things are stated. That being said, what you said was wonderful – it shows a side of humanity too often forgotten in days where we no longer have to look each other in the eye. I fully agree with you and thanks for that message. Today I found myself ruminating on a number of things and to hear a message such as yours… well, thank you again. It means more than you could know.

    No and no, I had no idea. I thought it was fairly red. Unfortunately, I heard the State itself has had some issues with cronyism, which is red, correct?

    Not a fan a Socialism by any stretch, but those countries wouldn’t be having an issue with Socialism were they still culturally and ethnically homogenous. The immigration in those countries has resulted in throwing off the populous via different cultures, work ethics, etc. and thus the effectivity of the system.

    When I was that age, I can’t argue I wasn’t the same. Now, I’m merely disillusioned.

    Idiots. These people vote. Hooray!

    The shocker is that the press was actually doing it’s job, though I wouldn’t be surprised if it weren’t merely because Tennessee is a notorious red state.

    Thank you for the recommendations. I will look into both.

    Interesting article. This keeps returning to my mind again and again. I’m agnostic, but I do want to know. I’m currently reading a book by Edward Feser titled, “The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism.” It’s an interesting read thus far. Feser seems to know a great deal more than most and in an in-depth fashion, as it were. I wouldn’t mind looking into a few of Dawkins books – I hear many atheists who lend much credence to his thoughts on the matter.

    I think he did implicitly state that which you mentioned in the first sentence. I would agree with your assessment, by the way.

    This is amazing. It definitely shows intelligence in communication, (or through communication,) among dolphins, and it also could be a stepping stone for technology used by humans. Great article!

    I agree with your first sentence. However, couldn’t Christianity, like any belief system, be held as indoctrination? We’re all indoctrinated with some paradigm, though the choice remains ours, (on a conscious or unconscious level,) to accept, reject, or choose the “salad bar” method with what we are presented. For most, (and this is conjecture,) I think they accept on an unconscious level via “salad bar” method, as there are many conflicting worldviews out there. I’d also say that the resulting worldview is a “Frankenstein” held together by logical fallacies and cognitive dissonance. I really don’t know for sure, however.

    The devil didn’t ruin his life – he ruined his own life. This smacks of one trying to dodge responsibility for past transgressions.

    Not only do I agree with your comments on this thread, but I logged on to tell you I absolutely love your avatar. That’s dark… read: perfect!

    I can’t really hope for an eternity of unending pain for him, as I don’t believe it to be, but I will agree with you that the description was awful. I think now I know why he was content with his own method of demise – he knew firsthand of other possibilities.

    @SocialismSux.

    In response:

    1) You never answered the question, justy offered a counter based on what you think I am. That could be a red herring.
    2) “If you no longer believe in Christ, then I doubt you ever did…” That’s called rationalizing, nothing more. “…people can convince themselves of most anything…” Yes, the same could be said of you.
    3) “but being ‘yoked equally in Christ’ is an ultimatum?” Yes, if it involves just THAT – an ultimatum.

    Bonus #1: “Lastly, 12 people walked with Jesus for a 3 year ministry, watched him die and come back to life, then carried his gospel to their deaths by torture. 2000 years later he still has followers.” THis proves nothing. Another logical fallacy to believe that something is true because other people believe it to be.

    Bonus #2: “… it’s called election. God seeks out, not the other way around. If God doesn’t draw you, you are not the elect.” Then the rest of us are damned by your count? It’s no wonder I think God’s an *******. Fortunately, if it does exist, I really don’t think it is what you think it is. Have a great day!

    Actually, American libertarianism is what you are thinking as far as the name, but in Europe, libertarianism takes on a different meaning in many circles. I’m an American libertarian, but I make no mistake with nomenclature.

    @LibertarianSocialist

    That is correct. There are certain neurotransmitters at work when the brain begins to shut down, a particular one of which is called DMT.

    @SocialismSux,

    Interesting responses.
    “I think that Connie wrestled with her conscience and told Ken what she believes. She holds her beliefs in her heart…”
    You know her heart? I suppose it’s imposition of your own views, so you must either be the optimist or merely have a good heart. Either way is fine by me.
    “…the truth is that only the Holy Spirit moves someone to Christ.”
    By that count, if I no longer believe in Christ or never have, then has the Holy Spirit been ineffectual? Has God turned it’s back? Is there really such a chance for the occurrences or would it be more logical to say two people met and didn’t jibe until he made some “adjustments” at her behest? By your count, I could easily hold the Holy Spirit, (read: not myself, but someone or something else,) accountable for my lack of “faith.”

    Lol! Motivations connote sincerity, which suggests integrity as opposed to vice. Motivations mean much for an individual. The fact that you toss it aside like an errant thought is illuminating.

    Great story, but how sound is operating on an ultimatum? In certain circles that’s referred to as “missionary dating.” Hell, if it worked for me, I’d jump on. The only problem is that if God even exists, I don’t find any virtue in it at all and no amount of ultimatums could tell me otherwise – they’d merely reinforce my beliefs. After all, what is an ultimatum but a coercive technique aimed at an end goal rather than addressing the issues at hand? I wonder if there isn’t more to it than what he’s stating?
