Wow great and big thread with lots to chew on.

I find it interesting that people want to believe in something beyond themselves spiritually.  It's one of the enigmas of being human.  I think we as humans don't want to recognize that there is in fact nothing controlling our lives.  We want to be controlled to a degree because the control eliminates fear of the unknown.

Extremism in most forms is bad. Fundamentalist Christians might becoming more common place as a reaction to the liberal media pushing the envelope further and further regarding sexuality and behavior.  I agree fundamentalist movement promote hate and division more than anything.  The "you are with us or against us" attitude doesn't fly well with my personal outlook. 


The things we touch have no permanence.

Nah. I'm not so brilliant (I wish I could be - but reality proves the contrary). I think - and I may be wrong - but I think it was Stendhal who said it.


Or Popeye.

Either way: I share their opinion.
