The moon's formation

Saying such is a cop out when one does not want to accept that maybe... just MAYBE, the the moon (along with the stars in the sky) was hand crafted by God as a symbol to us of "light in darkness." Think about it.

I have... and dismissed it for utter bullshit.... when I was 10.

Nothing I can do for those, such as yourself, who refuse to see reason.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

I'm gonna drop my moon on you right now! Don't worry. It's waxing, so it will be nice and shiny.

Referring to someone's bare butt as a "fool moon" or "mooning" is racist. Not everyone's butt is white, you know.


So you prefer the dark side of the moon?  Does your husband know?
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.

I think she's trying to make a case for bleaching. From what I understand that does not help the surface, only the deep impact crater.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick
