Jim Guest asked "So does that mean that underage sex is ok?"

That's a bit of a non sequitur! I can't really see why, saying our understanding of death has improved over time, suggests that under age sex is okay?

To answer your question, I think there is a huge difference between two, mature for their age, teenagers having sex and a case where there is a large age difference. But, in general no, our improved understanding of death doesn't mean that under age sex is okay.

It's a tough choice, but "Moving Pictures" probably just pips "Wyrd Sisters" to the post, followed by any other story that features either Granny Weatherwax or Rincewind!

I thought you'd eventually say that.

Did you know I would also claim that a happy yak needs no string? Or that the F of the S is more D than the M? Thought so!

I think the Church of the SubGenius would suit you quite nicely.

I'm sure you know that people who would prefer under-age sex to be acceptable also prefer Jesus to bugger off out of their lives. Very sequitur, that. One must take care who one associates with.

'There are more things in heaven and on earth that were ever dreamt of in your philosophy' (and mine), C. A. Small. Is it really superstitious drivel to suppose that there might be a being who is greater than death.

I find the Jesus Mysteries by Timothy Freke a good read on the subject!

"Is it really superstitious drivel to suppose that there might be a being who is greater than death. "

Yes. It's just a crutch for an ego that can't accept the fact of death, or cope with reality in general.

By the way, if you're going to quote Shakespeare, kindly credit your source.

NF- I have recommended this frequently, but theists do not like it for some reason.

RW: I did use quotation marks to show that the words were not mine. Maybe I didn't know it was Shakespeare; or maybe I just assumed that anyone who knows owt would know that the prince of Denmark spoke these words.

CAS: It's just an abbreviation of my name.

I have known God speak to me in ways which were sufficiently objective to be other than fanciful imaginings, but not so objective that I could prove it to a third party. I do not know why God whispers then sometimes seems to hide; but he does promise that if we seek him we will find him. And sometimes he finds us even when we're not looking - as he did when he revealed himself to Saul (Paul) of Tarsus, that zealous persecutor of Christians.

DR: I personally am not concerned with wheter a prophet died or not. It is his message, the ideology he advocates that is of importance. As a student of Buddhism, I do not care less whether a Buddha actually existed, died or achieved Nirvana. It is the truth of the doctrine that is of import to me. not who said it or whether they promise me anything. In a thousand years will people ask if Martin Luther King actually lived and died? Do people now ask that question? No. It is your trust in the ideology, the principle, not in the the man or woman, that makes the difference.

Spin: I think you have a very good point. If people truly sought to live by the teachings and principles of the Buddha, Zoroaster, Jesus and the like, the world would be a much better place.

Yet a famous Christian once said, 'If it is for this life only we hope, then we are of all fools most to be pitied.' I hope for more. Pathetic and egocentric maybe... but perhaps we all have just a little hope within us...

Spin says:
DR; "Hope" is no more than the dream of actualising ones life. This life is short, so try to turn your dreams into reality. To hell with arguing with me about moral, religious and political issues...Get out and change the world. Then, and only then, can you end your life in peace and fulfillment regardless of what favours you were promised by politicians, prophets or gods.

Again - you're right about doing good stuff. Maybe I do what I can - and maybe you do to.

I'll continue to put more trust in God (or my vain imaginings if you like) than I would in politicians though... Don't trust any of them!

DR: In all honesty, put your faith and trust in anything that makes you a better person and enhances your life and the life of those you love. It is your life, and the lives of your loved ones that matter, not purile posts on an anonymous thread. ><((((>. =)
