    I'm kind of old and tech-rusty. Was wondering how to put a picture under my name. Thanks
  4. I went to a Jesuit university for one year. The president of the university came to my dorm's beer bash. My physics professor (not a priest) would lead us in a hail Mary at the beginning of class. One time he said he went to confession after he'd graded the midterms.

    You go, freethinker, for standing your ground

    I usually don't feel like doing the tearing apart and putting back together. But in the end it's totally worth it.

    That could be dangerous. After 30 years of 'getting on with my life', I ended up completely miserable in my retirement. Eventually I concluded that a remnant of my (former) belief in hell destined me to come to a horrendous end. Feeling much better now! Even after rejecting original sin, I still tended to think of myself as a terrible person...etc. I find it's important to dredge up the unspoken underlying assumptions of it all.

    Don't think it's ever cured, even by Jesus. For me, Jesus causes a relapse (chicken/egg?)

    Does Math REALLY Exist?

    I've always been intrigued by the contrasting statements Math is the Queen of the sciences. Math is the Handmaiden of the Sciences. Guess it depends on whether you're a mathematician or engineer. Mathematicians dream up esoteric theories. Part of their motivation is an esthetic pursuit.. Sometimes decades later scientists discover it applies perfectly to some physical phenomenon. Group theory is an example. WTF?

    Q: Why are soldiers so tired on April Fool's Day? A: They just finished a 31 day march.

    Shared Experiences and Hello

    Welcome! Hope you find a lot of things you can relate to here. I'd take one of your statements a step further and say guts are emotions (viscera&visceral) (sp?) Tom
