louismoreaugottschalk – “I think what you say triggers atheist’s defences. sometimes all they have for an identity is their defenses; forums like this one entrenches group think. You are an invading virus! Nevertheless the truth is a wedge against such vanity!“
This one [adam], I have now learned to leave alone for his own sake.
it’s interesting this “concept” of identity. I’m not a big fan of it. What it usually refers to is the mistaken association of the personality (i.e. ego) with the Self.
The more we cling to, and reinforce THAT, the deeper the hole gets and ignorance runs the show.”
louismoreaugottschalk – “yes ignorance runs the show and playground bullys assume preeminence among those that can bully. oy!
I’m seeing some beauty and wisdom in following you as you engage w the culture though.“
Kevin Osborne responding to Button – “This is something anyone can test easily. If you are feel unhappy, close your eyes and tell yourself to look where your attention is. Something will likely come up. Look it over to the point where you understand it. This takes a little practice but it works. This place is very complex but our personal history is easy to locate, if not educated out of it.“
myeck waters responding to Kevin Osborne – “STOP!
No one but you finds this shit convincing. Just take it somewhere else. This is not the place for you.“

I think the frog has been thoroughly boiled long ago.
Since the precedent has been set, perhaps we can start medicating males who show signs of abnormal interest in guns and explosives.“
louismoreaugottschalk responding to brmckay – “I think your observation is spot on. what is the pattern of dysfunction of USA civilization. is it like the Romans? is it like the 3rd reich? marginalized people are at risk. hideous fact; it’s open season on targeted ppl who cannot escape the slaughter and have no voice that anyone listens to.“
I appreciate your confirmation. Since I don’t want to get into it with this crowd, I can still satisfy my need to follow-up.
As an alternative “solution” to the previous sarcastic one I’ll just say that:
If the dragon has 10,000 heads, my response is to look for the root cause.
That cause has it’s efficient remedy. As you know.
