we need to stop living in ignorance and ask questions such as who created us and what for?

Thanks for proving me right, Rodge.

I hope your bad case of senile dementia doesn't stop you doing it again...

Tom C,

'You should get out more.'

Well I also think he is, so that's twice in one day!

If you can't appreciate the beauty of nature, or a walk in the woods somewhere, or just a nice glass of wine or a few beers and just be glad to be alive, what can you do?

Very astute point, and so very true.

RED claims to have 'an ordered, disciplined mind'.

Did they give him a delivery date?

Throughout this argument Darwin is called an atheist when in fact for most of his life he was an agnostic, he actually stated that "I have never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God." The church didn't have a problem with evolution/natural selection to the extent that he was buried in Westminster Abbey. Like most thinking people he struggled with his belief in God, a true scientist he constantly weighed up the evidence.

As for a comment above somewhere connecting atheism to the atrocities in WW2, what about all the atrocicities including torture carried out in the name of God?

People can spend far too much time searching for a meaning to life that they forget to actually live.

Well, you have now (been accused of being small minded) - so that is one claim you can no longer make - at least on this thread.

I've never even been to Egypt.

I have, however, been to France and seen the Paris sites. I did not fall in the river so I'm not in Seine.

I have never been accused of being small minded. I have been accused of having an ordered and disciplined mind and to that I enter a plea of guilty as charged.

"Your derisive and small minded comments have just confirmed my black and white thinking"

Black and white thinking does indicate a small mind, yes.

"Perhaps Roger is a bit of a Communist? "

It's odd you should say that. I've often thought that his royalist, fascist rants may be a front; a displacement activity to disguise secret feelings of admiration for beliefs he can't possibly admit to.

It's very similar to the way some individuals make such strident protests against gays, while the rest of us just shrug and say "so what"? You have to wonder what they're suppressing and denying within their own psyche.

RED,

**Ecc 9:5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them c is forgotten. NIV Bible**
Translated: We know that we will die and have no knowledge of the experience when it happens, and have no further place here, and eventually will be forgotten in the physical world.

How is this relevant to my previous posts?
Forget that. I don't need an answer.
I feel that you are on a completely different plane to me, one which I travelled as a child before my awakening, and as such is would be virtually impossible to debate with you, without causing you distress, because you obviously know what you know and feel it to be right at any cost...for you...
I am sorry that your eyes have not yet opened, but that is where you are on your journey, and no one else has the right to hurry you.
This is your Karma being played out, and no one else's. Be kind to yourself, and one another. Judge not, lest you be judged. Keep your mind and your heart open and forgive. Trust as a child, and seek and you will eventually find..

When you hear that dogma, ritual and money are involved in your spiritual education, then you should be very, very suspicious.
Peace and Love is all there is to be desired.
Regards
Margaret

I spent a few weeks in the USSR in 1988 (Moscow & Leningrad). The trains ran on time and the streets were very safe indeed. Perhaps Roger is a bit of a Communist?

Sorry, but there is no re-incarnation. It is a theory born of man's imagining that he can control his destiny and if he can be be re-born that means he never need fear death.
