Hi Coralie,
I've had a tiny twinge of regret about my mean-spirited remarks to x3 and skeptic, but they are so aggrevating.

Skeptic doesn't usually have much to say beyond his emotional reactions to other posters, however, earlier on this thread he did show some ability to analyze, and you gave him the Gotcha about taxes.

But, I see he thought your comment, "insults are not arguments" was meant as commiseration.
Oh, well. I always enjoy your posts.

I just saw your post to my profile.

Once my lovely wife and I get through the travail of organizing our relocated household, we might be interested in an excuse to get to the library more often. She is not a letter-writer, but she likes the library.

Are you on Facebook?

I got only this post:
"Did I just post something or was it lost?"

"If everything must have a creator, who or what created the Creator?
It seems to me this is a problem of infinite regression.
I do not know all the answers and prefer to call the whole thing a Mystery."

Actually Coralie, an infinite regression of caused events is impossible mathematically speaking. We could never traverse an infinite number of caused events to get to this point in time! Picture it this way - an infinite number of railroad cars all the same color, say grey, and one of us is standing next to a car that is unique in color, say red. Now imagine the other one of us begins walking away from the red car and agrees to call the other on the phone once the end is reached. You'd never receive a phone call! If the universe had a beginning as the Big Bang theory suggests, then something that was itself uncaused was the initial 'unmoved mover' which set the universe into motion. Whatever that was, it had to exist eternally and be outside of time, space and matter(i.e., the universe as we know it). The Creator (i.e., God) is the only concept which fits that description - eternal, omnipotent (all powerful), omnipresent, omniscient and the Unmoved Mover or First Cause.

faytown (BOB SHOULDERS) says...

you nailed it coralie. greg, and most people involved in these discussions, have totally missed the point of the whole komen misstep. abortion was never the issue...taking away breast health options for the underserved was the issue.

Coralie, the eye drops if they are like mine, have a top that unscrews to come off. there remains a white ring. take that off. inside the cap you'll see a sharp point. screw the cap back on and the point will now go far enough on to puncture the seal.

ARTrails (D. J. Johnson) says...

Coralie, AlphaCat and Dellman provided all the information I have too. Is there a reason you keep posting to this article? Are you looking for someone in particular? Maybe I can help.

Sorry for your troubles, hope the kinks get worked out soon.

ARTrails (D. J. Johnson) says...

I see. No those don't sound like kinks. I hope if someone is having a similar problem they see your posts.

ARTrails (D. J. Johnson) says...

Maybe rather than posting here which obviously isn't getting to anyone or the audience you need, maybe do an opinion letter. See if that gets published....

fayfreethinker (DARREL HENSCHELL) says...

Coralie, you said:

"Assuming Hitler said those words, what's your point in quoting him, Moneymyst?"

He's not quoting him, he's lying. Moneymyst is a consummate internet troll. He hasn't the slightest interest in whether what he says is true or insightful, accurate or plagiarized. He is here to cause dissension annoy people and get attention. Best to feed a troll as little as possible, their main interest is in lowering the quality of discourse.

Note, he is also the same person who posted as Phillip1955 (remember the long Bigfoot exchange) and got banned and had all of his comments removed (for posting obnoxious material). He then posted as NWAobserver but either got removed or gave that one up because he didn't get enough attention.

My_2_cents (Julia Julia) says...

You CANNOT purchase firearms on line. That is WRONG information, like so much other information being slung around by people who are ignorant about firearms. You can order a firearm on line from a manufacturer or dealer. The firearm is then shipped to a dealer near you that possesses a Federal Firearms License issued by the United States Government. You must go to the FFL dealer, pay his fees, submit to a background check, and then receive your firearm. Check your facts prior to posting.

boyscout357 (CARY MATHEWS) says...

FYI, I am far from ignorant, somewhat highly educated and a higher than average IQ. Combine that with an above average memory, and analytical skills. I do not waste my time referencing biased sources, I do my own research from unbiased sources and draw my own conclusions. Are you sure you want to label me as "ignorant"?

suerichar (SUE RICHARDSON) says...

Since I believe that I am a devine creation of God given the abilities of reason, deduction, choice, sympathy, empathy, and a higher level of thinking than the instinct driven animal kingdom, I have a hard time with analogies to what takes place among beasts. For me, it defies logic to compare behavior resulting from choice and logic with animals who only have instinct that runs amuck when their instinct to do something like multiply is thwarted by a shortage in the numbers of opposite sex or when starving they resort to cannibalism. Puppies and other baby animals practice sexual activity in preparation for coming of age. It is more logical that Geese and other animals seemingly practicing homosexuality are actually just frustrated because their were not enough of the opposite sex to go around. Little spike deer hang out together because they are not strong enough to fight the buck for his herd - there is safety in numbers.. Male cats will kill other males kittens just as zebras kill other males offspring. Such behavior is common in the world of beasts, we can choose, sympathize, empathize, thinks things through to their logical ends and so on - beasts cannot do that so it simply makes no sense to me - it is like comparing apples to horse apples - they both grow on trees, but they have nothing else in common. My comments concerning the norm are based on our progression as a "civilized" society and God's order and ultimate desire to be our God and for us to be His people.

I have never seen myself as some sort of slime or something that accidentally washed up or crawled out of the ocean. Whatever that turned into was not the divinely created Adam and Eve.
