    Dragons everywhere you look!

    This is so interesting! I was just watching Peter Jackson's rendition of King Kong this weekend, it got me thinking about the possibility of our ancestors and dinosaurs inhabiting the earth at the same time. If by some miracle ancient human ancestors and dinosaurs encountered one another or...

    Future Memory

    I've often had strong feelings of deja-vu but I can't recall ever experiencing something quite like that. I do remember my last year of high school when all of the nearby (and some not to nearby) universities came and set up tables to show the soon to be graduates what they had to offer, I knew...

    Advice for travelling to Mexico

    Hi everybody, I haven't posted anything in a long long time! I couldn't think of a more eclectic, well-educated group of people to ask for travel advice from. I'm REALLY hoping to be able to travel to Mexico in February with my husband. While we'll enjoy relaxing some of the time we'd really...

    The Science of Kabbalah

    I don't know much about Kabbalah except what I see on TV and what little I've been able to find on the internet. I do find mysticism very intriguing. However this concept of increasing your desire to receive but turning it into receiving for altruistic instead of egotistic reasons seems a...

    What music are you listening to?

    I grew up listening to what my mom listened to which I still enjoy - The Eagles, Phil Collins, Lobo, Elton John, Air Supply, anything that'd make you wanna cry, lol. As a teenager I went off on a rock tangent (yikes here comes the age revealing part) - Metallica, Guns-N-Roses, Megadeth...

    Three Marys

    I'm sorry I nearly forgot that I started this thread! Thank-you all so much for your input, I've learned a lot (and best of all that I'm not alone on my train of thought, lol), it's so nice to be able to ask questions and get a informative non-judgemental response. :) -R

    The Power of Words

    I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this in, please forgive me and feel free to move it if not. I was just thinking about how in the Bible in Genesis it says something along the lines of 'In the beginning there was the word and the word was G-d and it was good'. I know that's...

    Bestiality vs Child Sex vs Homosexuality vs Incest

    I haven't been around much lately, ironically I'm busy planning my wedding which is now less than four months away so life is a little chaotic (re: total anarchy, lol). I'd have to say that I agree with Lunamoth hole-heartedly. I also believe that this has to do with the ability of the parties...

    I agree with Brian in that I think that Bandit started this thread in regards to the plot in the bible (he did get my quote from the Abrahamic Religions board on the Liberal vs. Literal Christian thread). Personally I feel that it is naive to consider the Bible totally a black & white literal...

    liberal vs. literal Christian

    I don't think that it's fair to say that someone has missed the plot because they interpretted things differently. my 2c -R

    Religion and humour

    "Lord, I have a problem." says Eve. "What's the problem, Eve?" "I know that you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, as well as that hilarious comedic snake, but I'm just not happy." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man...

    Anyone else have a hard time losing pets?

    Thanks Lunamoth. I'm sorry to hear of your loss as well.

    Anyone else have a hard time losing pets?

    I always thought that I wouldn't be one of those crazy people that mourns pets like they were family members but one of my cats had a stroke and had to be put down this morning and I feel as though I've lost my right arm. He was the most dependable creature in my life the last 5 years or so...

    The decline of Religious influence and the increase of Police

    I couldn't agree more. I think that looking to religion to fix our current societal problems is looking for a simple answer to a very complex problem. I do see how religion can bring people together and create a feeling of community but it can also pull people apart and cause wars (my religion...

    Atheism and AA

    I hadn't heard that one before. I have known of people that have had a hard time working the AA program because they refused to believe in any type of higher power. That cliche may be of use to them. One of my favourites is 'where there's a will, there's a way' and I believe that if a person...

    What are the women rights like under Islam??

    This is precisely where equal rights comes into play, for their rights to be equal neither would have rights over the other. From what I can gather this means that women have more say over living expenses but they must obey and respect men. How could a woman possibly have any right over a man...

    from my heart honestly>>but blz tell me ((am I right or not??))

    You ask us not to judge you before we know you yet you judge us before you know us, is that fair? All the same I do not judge you, I just don't want to be judged by you or anyone. It is not for us to judge another human being, we cannot know how it is to be them. All the same I do not think...
