"This is IT ... !!! Make no Mistake where you are ... You're going no further ... This is It ... !!! Until it's over-and-done ... The Waiting is over ... !!!"

I'm not here often enough to participate in a thread like this.  My guess is while others around here could do it, they probably won't.  I'm pretty blunt, so I'll just come out & say this:  even though I'm an atheist, I don't abide dogmatic party-line groupthink, but imo that's what a lot of atheists do on Bnet.  It's not just the religionists, though obviously the religionists & theists are almost defined by their inability to do anything but groupthink.  But imo what's going on here so far with Teilhard's attempt to start a social chat thread, is that, because it's Teilhard, none of those who frequent this board, posting upwards of 10 to 100 posts a day overall on Beliefnet, will bother to participate.  Maybe I'm wrong.

Bringing comfort to those that suffer is draining.  It's not easy to see such human suffering.  I know that you have a BIG compassionate heart.  Bless you.

Acting with compassion is something that is done by both believers and non-believers. It doesn't matter who does it. acting in a moral and compassionate way to the benefit of others is just the right thing to do. Believers like me think that's the way God wants us to act. non--believers think it's just the moral way to act. both are right!


well done Teilhard.

I'm sure you will miss her, I miss those that have touched my life that have died, but they live on in my heart.

What is really confusing, and disturbing, is when we see self-professed "believers" who speak and act in very non-compassionate, intolerant, and hurtful ways.


And anyone who says they don't see that is either lying, or playing blind.

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

Ah CL, we all have our shadow and as we have seen most would like to deny it.  I assume you are speaking of the "fundies"?

Not necessarily.  And, most importantly, I am not saying that I personnally never fall short of the mark.
