If you're doing it tough, please hang in there. It gets funkier...

Quote of the Day:

I'm a guy that lives with a lot of questions. I say "What's out there?", and I try to resolve that. And I never can...and so I live with a lot of questions.

And I find that entertaining... If my life were to end tomorrow, it would be fulfilled in that manner. I would say, "The questions have been terrific."

I've gotten sunscreen in my eye and it burns like the dickens! How the actual F did these people do this and think it was ok? I mean logic would tell you that people wouldn't need sunglasses if this was possible. Darwin Award winners.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

It's clear that monotheism is just an abstract and "sanitized" form of the original pantheism practiced by the ancients. And that original pantheism was derived directly from a knowledge of cosmology. In fact, the "worship of the gods" was simply a mnemonic to help preserve the knowledge of cosmology! However, what our creators actually believe in could be an entirely different thing. We probably weren't considered worthy of receiving that perspective.

Even ancient peoples had a highly developed sense of the wink and the nod.
