Oh man. Oh man. The following equation:

Paris Hilton + Jail (Socorro Church) = Religion.

... is just blowing my mind. Does....not...compute! Not.... sure.... why.... not....!

Those words have never before existed together in a sentence! Ever! Paris Hilton... Jail (Socorro Church)... Religion... it's never been done! You could give a million zillion monkeys a million zillion typewriters and let them type for a million zillion years and you'd get Shakespeare, sure, but not THAT!!

Gaaaa! Worlds colliding! You've melted my brain!

I think that sounds interesting. Wonder if Britney Spears can join her somehow. Maybe it can be their new shrine. At least the church will get an increase in young male visitors, anyway.

I think Ms. Perky should be changed to Ms. Pissy, because of her overreaction.

CoolCat: No, I have not taken that course or workshop or whatever it is.

You are obsessed with scripts and chess. What an interesting speciality!


changeagent: Well you answered one question out of four. You have not taken the course or workshop or whatever it is. (That makes you an expert on this thread.) For some reason you do not want to answer the others. You berate Perky but dodge these harmless questions.

1) Have you taken the 100 Days to Greatness class? No, (You answered)

2) When you get in informal "debates" concerning religion (in light of the fact that you studied world religions at the graduate level) do you find yourself or the other party resorting to using the same dialog or "scripts"?Yes or No

3) Have you watched What tHe BLeep!? "Down The Rabbit Hole" or The Secret? No Response

4) Do you play chess? Yes or No

---------------------
Now taking on whether Catholics are Christians and the debate between Changeagent and Prodigy, I'll leave them to play that game themselves. I am like Perky in several ways, I am a "born again believer" but have problems with organized religion and mans doctrines.

"born again believer" Did I say "SAVED"

It just says something about group psychology and weakness of character when members of a religious sect summarily declare
its followers to be "saved".

Don't you think?

If the "house painter" referenced God or claimed he got his abilities from The Lord God Almighty would that negate everything you learned from "the painter" making you unable to or even want to paint a house using his techniques, shortcuts, type of paint brush, and the same brand of paint?

Will you have an open mind to the basic fundamentals of working your sphere of influence taught by Brian Buffini?


I think you may be missing the point...I never qustioned whether the class was valueable, nor did I ever say that the presence of religious content would prevent me from benefitting from the class. thats not the issue....

could I learn from someone who is religous? of course, I have, and do. let me ask you- can the religious learn from an atheist?

for those of you who are religious...If you were told you HAD to take a class, and pay $400 for it, and then you were to stand up and say "there is no god" in that class, how would you feel?

all of you should think about that for a second....think about that while you are telling me that its no big deal....

I think we can tell, by how wound up everyone has been in this thread, that it IS a big deal to everyone....no matter which side you are on....


1) I can learn from atheists.
2) If I was taking a class that was $400, I would learn what I could but would have no trouble not saying or repeating something I did not want to. (In church I rarely sing when every one else does, if I don't like the words.)
3) If I was an atheists, which I used to be an agnostic prior to becoming a "born again believer". I would say it was no big deal. I certainly would not fret over the subject and start this post. That is why it took me so long to even join in this thread because I agree with the second response in this long thread. (See Below)
4) I truly feel this topic is "No Big Deal". You (seattlemetal) are feeling insecure for some reason? To quote my aloof friend changeagent "You're kidding,right?"

Originally Posted By: REODayton

Just curious though. Why would you ask such a question?



This is my final three questions in this post:

seattlemetal are you doing the Buffini program, if so can you see where it is $400. well spent?
seattlemetal Have you watched What tHe BLeep!? "Down The Rabbit Hole" or The Secret
Perky are you drinking blackberry wine and getting pissy?

Well according to the typewriting monkey's who do work out of a back room in a church in Socorro Britney Spears has given up religion. But according to my new math:
Britney Spears(Paris Hilton + Jail) + Socorro Church = HOT New Reality TV Show.

Sadly, Cool Cat, I am not drinking any wine. I forgot that I drank it all yesterday and had to content myself with too much iced tea and thoughts of the Pirate Code and commandeering an annoying thread.

As to being pissy...well, I'll let you be the judge. wink

Come out and see the latest reality TV show in the hot desert of Socorro NM. It will be getting hotter as we see these two celebrities show us just why "Lust = Sin" when we take:
Paris + Britney + Church (typewriting monkeys)= rating through the roof for MTV!

Perky I am feeling your pain I am being gently reminded that I have a blog to post, well he isn't looking to nice about it at the moment. I even have the photos. I might even have some sneak peek photos of the newest reality show out of NM. This new math is really confusing!

Well folks, I know you hate to hear this but I am going to back away from the keyboard and put myself to sleep, hopefully, by reading the next chapter of my favorite bedtime story: Obsession, An FBI Profiler's Journey into the Psyche of Killers, and stuff like that.

My other hobby, besides all things pirate, is reading true crime stories. I loaned out Realty Blogging so I can't review that, so a bit if reading up on the BTK and Ted Bundy and the like is just the thing I need to send me off into la la land.

G'night! It's been fun!

Good morning, all!

If you really wanted to have an intelligent, adult conversation/discussion about religious belief and the reasons for it, you might try a new approach. Howzabout something like "I don't believe there is a God and I have good reasons for my belief; however, I understand that many disagree and they have equally good reasons for their belief" ... instead of (to paraphrase) "There is no God and people who believe in God are non-thinkers and stupid."

For all of you who flat out declare that "There is no God," you sound kind of silly. You have no more "proof" of that "fact" than you perceive believers have that there is a God. Showing a little respect for other viewpoints will take you farther than your flippant disregard for them.

As a former atheist, raised in a family that was "too intelligent to believe in God," I can easily see your side and can relate to the perceived silliness of it all. I used to read the Children's Bible with my mother and make fun of it because it was so obviously WRONG. I DO see how you can believe (or don't believe as the case may be) the way you do; try to show the same respect. When you don't, you're just as bad as the ridiculous evangelists and militant religious folks you criticize.
