  1. So sad that so many cultures have already been corrupted this way
  2. Hey, SB...glad to know you're doing well
  3. As I walked from my pickup to my workshop this morning, I prayed that I wouldn't get trampled by a herd of elephants. Guess what....not an elephant to be seen. Isn't gawd great?

    Hi and welcome ...you're among friends here
  6. I've also noticed that 1 or 2 veterans of this site haven't been posting much lately...such as my fellow eastern canadian Margee...but like DestinyTurtle said, life does get in the way sometimes.
  7. I was wondering about that too...seems like it's been happening quite a bit.
  8. I'm still trying to figure out why Abraham is revered as he is...I mean, he was ready to kill his only child because he heard a voice. Yup...let's all follow that dude But seriously, monotheism is certainly one of the biggest roadblocks to progress. As long as islam and christianity keeps spreading, human advancements will be hampered.
  9. He didn't exactly seem the type to "turn the other cheek", that's for sure.
  10. Yet another christian has failed to convince me...
  11. What I'm about to say is from my own experience and I have no data to back it up...over the past 30-40 years around here, the annual temperature curve seems to have flattened a little. The winters aren't as cold as they were back in the 70s and 80s, but then the summers aren't as warm either. On top of that, there are more intense storms here than there used to be. Back in the old days, a single rain event with 100+ mm of rain was pretty much unheard of. Now it's almost an annual event. Things have changed...whether it's natural or human-made...Idk. I find myself hoping that it's part of the natural ebb and flow of the global climate...but there's a part of me that thinks that maybe we (humans) f*cked up.

    Funerals

    I've seen a little of that here too...around here it's more typical of a religious family to have a long, drawn-out, expensive funeral while secular families sometimes don't do the ceremony. The secular approach was virtually unheard of a few years ago, but it does seem to be happening a little more these days.
  13. I'd leave it alone, too. But leave the floor open for discussion about it, if they so desire.
