Good morning,

A number of threads have suffered posts which seem intent on disrupting them, so this thread is an annex to direct them to.

Based on the scripture in Timothy:

"Turn down foolish and ignorant questionings which only result in fights"

this thread (pronounced "Fake") is a place where you can direct such posters to continue their disruptive posts and where you can reply, if you feel like doing so, leaving the spiritual thread free to progress in a spiritual manner.

Timothy sounds like a right prig.

Actually, this was a letter written to Timothy by an older and more experienced man who had experienced many such wastes of time.

It's not known for sure who wrote the letter though it's likely that it was Paul when he was in prison leading up to his death.

What did he mean by 'the snares of the devil' exactly I wonder?

To me (sorry, see other thread) it's typical of Paul's mindset that he would be jealous of another male with that certain je ne said quoi more than he had.

As Spin has said something that can be said should be said clearly I'll say something that can't be said (but that's never stopped me before). My Labrador as a puppy had a very cute tuft of hair growing from inside his penis. When we finally got him at about ten weeks old it had disappeared, but was that good I wonder? Maybe it should have been tweezered out, or would that be worse? There's a device called a No-No which burns the hair on your legs then turns them to crystal, which maybe was what happened with the urine dissolving the hair.

Hope you've all had your dinner!

I know this isn't very spiritual, but actually a while back there was a spirituality thread where you could discuss Shaman's and so on and other types of crystals.

I chose my dog though, because of the even cuter white star on his chest which he was quite bashful about.

Yes, well. In the Koran, Mohammed spends a lot of time wondering why he generates so much jealousy from others. Is it all to do with how many sons one has? So I'm advancing my own theory based on a certain type of experience.

I'm still not sure where you were going, or where you went, with the puppy story.

Well, in various directions I suppose. Some people here have theorised about what it is about circumcision that motivates some cultures to still do it, and come up with some strange ideas about what the rationale is and whether men look at each other's penises and compare.

So did Paul look at another man and think that man had something better because it was hairier? Dare I say it, were these the 'snares of the devil'?

I tell you what ... this forum gets weirder and weirder.

If you're worried about the dog, he's fine and all grown up now. But I'm a little concerned about the hair and is it healthy for it to disappear like that?

I'm more worried about you, Caroline.

This is definitely one of the more interesting threads (thanks for starting it Acts) and hardly anybody has been rude to anybody. I hope the spiritual threads are going spiritually as a result.

I'm slightly confused Caroline, when you say "I chose my dog though, because of the even cuter white star on his chest". Are you saying this star is even cuter than his hairy penis? That's not a comparison I'd normally make but I suspect I would almost always find a white star on a puppy's chest cuter than its penis.

Hi Acts,

"leaving the spiritual thread free to progress in a spiritual manner."

Spirituality is strengthened through adversity. Adversity is used to test one's faith. Even Jesus had to spend his time in the desert alone, hungry and thirsty, with only the devil to talk to ;o) and scripture to keep him focused. After a time of testing the devil left him alone for a while.
take care light

Acts, you clearly have great faith in human nature (no pun intended. Ok, I'm lying.) if you think that those who you feel are ruining spiritual discussions will choose to post here rather than in the discussions you seek to protect.

Alternatively, you believe these people are stupid and easily distracted. In which case it worked on me. Well done.

Good morning I.N.

I don't think they will actually post here, but we can direct them here with the implication that we will not consider any more of their diversive posts on the spiritual threads.

Acts: Those who get a thrill from disrupting genuine discussion may be directed to this thread but as to whether they will post thier derisions and insults on it is another matter...Thier raison d'etre is to disrupt, not accomodate.

Good evening Spin,

Indeed - but the aim of the thread is to remove such diversions from the spiritul threads. If they do not wish to post here, that is entirely up to them.

spin,

I enjoy challenging questions because it makes me think deeper and usually leads to me learning something new but I really despise the name calling and putting others down, I don't see any benefit in that.

Hi Acts,

I agree, I would really like to see a good spiritual discussion where different faiths can come together and share their beliefs. Is there something that you'd like to discuss? But I've also seen some religious people behave just as crude as those who do not believe in God and religious people are supposed to be practicing spiritual principles in all their affairs.
