  1. I'm enjoying it! I've been LMAO!!
  2. Yeah, I saw that stupid segment as well and it was so damn ignorant. And then it made me irritated when they were saying the part about the morals. Yep, the dinasours are only 6000 years old and we all just roamed the earth in peace with each other for a while. Its very frustrating to me that people buy into this. Too bad they made such a beautiful museum with crap for information in it...
  3. I guess their theory is the more obnoxious it is, the more likely you are to remember it. Great theory, huh? I have a tv with volume control and then I have another small one without. Whenever the stupid taco bell commercial comes on (and it's the only one that does it), it is SOOO freaking loud that I cringe and frantically reach for the remote whenever it comes on.
  4. You know what really gets me mad? When Xtians say we can't possibly have any morals because we have no god. I shrug off a lot of things they say, but that one really strikes a nerve with me. It's so ridiculous. As if we are just some droids walking around...
  5. Oh my god, this is funny if it wasn't for the fact that she lives next to you! Talk about a nightmare neighbor! She may have never been a danger to herself/anyone before, but these kind of folks are unpredictable.. Years ago when I was married and pregnant, we got a knock on our door in the middle of the night from our local crazy neighbor down the street who was drunk out of her mind. When my husband answered the door, she asked him to help her find her purse as it seemed she had lost it somewhere! He told HER to get lost. She never bothered us again like that, but she was constantly causing noise and chaos at her house all the time which we could hear from our house. Eventually, one night she decided to hold the people in her house hostage. (don't remember her crazy reasoning, but I remember all the police cars lining the street. Of course this was in the middle of the night.) Now, we knew she was nuts, but no one expected her to do something that extreme. These kinda folks are a wild card, you know? I'd say based on the kinds of stuff she is ranting about, she needs to be supervised somewhere where her and everyone else's safety can be assured. Having mental problems and managing it with meds is one thing, but she sounds a couple sandwiches too short for a picnic. Besides, you should be able to live at your home without all that drama. That's ridiculous. Keep us updated!
  6. I'm happy for you Mick! Good going!!
  7. Hey that's awesome!!! Thank you!!
  8. I was more or less wondering if there was a text containing the philosophies of Buddhism, not necessarily about Buddhism. I hope I don't sound confusing.
  9. Yes!! I hate this one! It's so damn annoying. The next commercial they put out that SAID it was annoying was even MORE annoying!! And this is funny. I am a migraine sufferer so a friend of mine "suprised" me and bought me a tube of that junk. I tried it and NO IT DOES NOT WORK! You may as well just rub chapstick on your forehead....it would be the same result!
  10. Jun, it was asked several posts ago if you can recommend any books on this subject. If you answered, I apologize, but I did not see it. Since you mentioned there are four types of buddhism, I am curious as to the correct texts. Thanks!
  11. Well it sounds like a tough situation...but I have to agree with some of the responses. I would say since it involves your job, I would just avoid the subject and they can assume whatever they want. Sometimes the tension and argument would not be worth it especially if it involves employment. There's always a time and place to talk about your beliefs, I would try to keep it out of work the best you can.
  12. Jun, this is how I feel about it too. (Evolution, nice way to sum it up!) I respect Buddhism because of the reasons above and enjoy the philosophies very much. They really make you think and examine yourself. Interesting discussion Jun!
  13. Thanks! Yes, I think there are many people who just don't realize that their thoughts affect their emotions and outlook. Granted, it's impossible to always feel positive, heck, I wish I could all the time! But when I am feeling down, I at least am aware of what I need to do to change it, even if it takes awhile. I think anything is possible in our lives. If we truly want to achieve something, we can make it happen as long as we are not reaching too high where it is unreasonable. We decide our fate and have control over what happens to us even if at times we don't think we do. When I let go of xtianity, it felt good for me to realize that I was in charge of my life and I didn't have to depend on "prayer" and if God felt like answering it or not, it was all up to ME.
