Tolerance is gained through understanding. Understanding however does not guarantee tolerance. "Tolerance" itself is a vague term especially if one associates behavior with physical attributes. Acceptance overlooks differences that don't matter. Acceptance means NOT associating behavior with physical attributes. The man robbed the store because hew as homeless and desperate for food. What color his eyes, skin, hair, teeth were has nothing to do with his having robbed the store. Anybody, either gender from any country might have done the

I The worst one yeah. The description after OST up there in the original message referred to an OST episode "Who Mourns for Adonis?" But for both this question was asked elsewhere: "What does god need with a starship?" Cindy

Very. He was the best of 'em.. the worst of 'em... of all time. John Delancy. Cindy

That doesn't sound too promising.

There you go! Not really other then the all the unexplained events I am sure all are familiar with. I wasn't after any evidence. Really? I can't imagine why that is so. Maurice

I have no idea but whatever it was it could type. Maurice

Hardcore evidence is lacking but there are many events that one would be hard pressed to dismiss as pure randomness. I could argue, but won't, that the lack of evidence doesn't prove God's nonexistance. I wasn't planning on proving anything. I only asked a question. I got many responses but few answers. To end this on a good note my memory was tweaked and I now know what I wanted to know. Thank you, Maurice

OHH! You mean God Dan! He hangs in POL_INC (and the SIMPSOMS echo too, I hear) mostly, as Dan Ceppa. I'm sure he will hear your prayers here though. <g>

RE: Belief/Knowledge/Rea
I'm an atheist and I believe no such thing. YOU ARE DEBUNKED! <VBG> I know that belief is subjective. And I know what FAITH means! Many atheists do COUNTER religionist arguments with "prove it!" sure, but that is just an exercise in demonstrating that religionists are simply relying upon FAITH and not science, or anything near it! That's true. His "disbelief is belief" is oxymoronic as well. Actually it means "without..."

RE: HAPPINESS
Being against something IS more "active" than simply not believing in it, though. I'm an atheist, but I believe in everyone's freedom of religion. If I were ANTI-religion...I wouldn't.

Especially since I only said "You go girl!" or something like that. <g>

That's a rather unequal judgement there, Howie. Because I acknowledged receipt of MANY offerings by Ivan. And I read them and then gave my views of them. Ivan, on the other hand, refused to acknowledge receipt of even that ONE document I offering lightly (or, at least, placed conditions on acceptance AFTER the fact). And these actions happened BEFORE I twitted him! He is twitted because he has proven that he will not accept ANYTHING that is counter to his

RE: HAPPINESS
I have just that. But I'd walk if they stopped paying me. <g> But I wasn't speaking of ME...I was talking of this other person's offered hippy shit! Which YOU buy! Sorry, but I think that there are MANY things more important. Like I said...get a grip!

HAPPINESS
I've never heard of such a thing. Should have I? Sorry, kid, but I'm only a commoner. (And I say "kid" in reference to your childish alias only) <g> Huh? Why would I even think to look there? Is there something mystical in the words "Jack B. Nimble" that automatically directs people to search any "nodelist"? What's the clue that tells me I must do such or _I_ am stupid? Again, you're not making any sense.

HAPPINESS
I wasn't serious with that, of course. He sure jumped when I mentioned the seeming commonality between Ivan and Oleg though. Anyway, who's this Jack dude, Cindy? If he's so well known...you should know who he is. Or is his true identity a secret widely known thing? <g>

ATHEISTS DOING GOOD W
I was playing with his ineptness there, Howie! Heck, read the thread up there. The guy can't even offer a question in the right place within a thread!

I already told her. But if you must know, I answered her online on Doc's because one can't reply to NetMails on Doc's via QWKmail. And when I tried to do so online Doc's system routed me to the wrong person. It wasn't a name I know. And I don't recall what name it was. She could have, because she spoke some nice things to me. But even if she didn't I wanted her to know that I didn't ignore

HAPPINESS
It's amazing that it's so well known but STILL unknown to me. I guess it's a well known secret, eh? <g> I didn't think it was. I only offered that in sarcasm.

ATHEISTS DOING GOOD W
NO he can't read my Netmail...thus my point! You see, what he offered was a stupid absolute. He had no basis for same, because Cindy DID comment to me in Netmail.
