Hey, maybe that's the solution quit punishing them and they'll go away. I wonder if Jelly would go for that? --Wolfie "It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this." --Bertrand Russell

You're both wrong. Coyote sang the world into being. Look around you it's here, isn't it? And we also have music, don't we? There you go. Which would have required an even more supreme being, and so on and so forth. I'd like to see some evidence that Coyote didn't sing the world into being, too, please, George. Besides, I'd rather have a tuneful god than one who likes to wipe people out for the hell of it, any

Freud Debunked 1/4
I'm kinda skeptical about this. According to the version of Hammurabi's code I have read "" there is nothing in there about demonic posession or it's cures via opium (or Freudian psychoanalysis.) Where might you be getting your information? Eric

Indeed. The United States is a screwy place: we'll let cigarette manufacturers get away with deliberately targeting minors for their products, but we'll deny pain medication to cancer patients because we're afraid they might get addicted. Were the United States to be considered a sentient entity, any psychologist would give a diagnosis of untreatable schizophrenia. --P. G. Simpson

Maybe the tax payers should, they are the ones supporting public education (and getting ripped off in the process). SPITFIRE v3.51 Le Maison De Metal 360-493-0798 Olympia, WA.

Such a change in behaviour need not signify a change in _orientation_. A lesbian who sleeps around with a few men until she gets pregnant because of a desire for children may still find women much more sexually attractive than men, but slept with men because, quite simply, it's cheaper to do so than to pay a doctor with a turkey baster to fertilise her in vitro. The gay man who marries in order to hide his orientation does so

Nah Ed, you'll LIKE Linux. It's a really neat multitaking OS and I'm sure you'll have loads of fun figuring out the syntax. I used to use UNIX itself at work. The documentation looked like Bell Labs interoffice memos and I'm betting they had great fun figuring out the most obscure commands possible. Neat stuff, like CAT, AWK, YACC, things like that. <snicker> I have Visual Basic too. I'd been writing one of my own for DOS but gave it

<Creationist Misquote and Out of Context stuff deleted.> <I left the reference so someone can find the rest of this quote.> Because Out of context quotes are not evidence. Because Creationism should not be taught in Science classes. The reason is because it is Not science. Most of those people thought that "balanced treatment" would be balanced. It isn't. They were mislead. I bet if you took a poll today asking if the people would want creationism taking up half

I once heard that about 1/3 of the money made in the USA is made by lawyers. That seems extremely high. That's okay to me. What I'd be worried about is if she sued for millions of dollars and was awarded it. Yeah. That's another thing I don't understand about the states. You're either a Democrate or a Republican. Here we have Liberal, Reform, Bloc-Quebecquois, Progressive-Conservative(think about this name), New Democratic Party, and some minor parties. That list is in

Re: Freud
even einstien had to work out his speed of light equation, i believe it was over one hundred times, and he still didn't get it right away.

aquatic evolution
Hell everyone, I've started reading this book, The Descent of Woman (anyone want to tell me what to do with a title of a book, I cannot italicize or underline here) bye elaine morgan. It is interesting, and she has some interesting ideas. She got them from A.C. Hardy "Was man more aquatic in the past?" The New Scientist, vol 7, 1960, pp 642-645. basically she is saying that when man began to evolve he went to the sea and

Hell, I just smoke a cigar.

I don't see this as a problem. Most of 'em already walk like they got a telephone pole stuck up there already.

Re: Morals declared
BUT...... Considering the statement above that you make about blind faith, how do you expalin yur belief in god? If you are to believe, you must do so on blind faith. No one has ever been provide any corporeal evidence for a deity of any kind.

Staal's hatred
This shines a whole new light on Jimbo's cross dressing habit.

Ok by me. There is no way to cook a duck to make it palatable. And goose is another stofy. I've heard it described as a flying liver.

A perfect example of typing faster than thinking.

Really? Why? What's so "basically decent" about humoring people who appear to be insane, deluded, or even inordinately foolish? Hec

How about you show evidence that any gods are around right now then we can work on whether they were around previously, and whether they'll be around later. Okay?
