I would like to take this opportunity to remind folks of the discussion parameters of this board:
"This board is for people of any faith or wisdom tradition to discuss what various faith and wisdom traditions have to say about the end of the world. Please note that people of ALL faiths and wisdom traditions are welcome here.
You are invited to explain what your faith or wisdom tradition teaches on this topic, quote sacred texts for illustration, ask questions and comment on the apocalyptic teachings of other faiths, and discuss the influence of end times beliefs in society. Make your case, defend your position, but be prepared that some members will disagree with you, and they have a right to their opinions.
Please do not attempt to convert anyone's religious beliefs here, or ridicule others for their beliefs. Respect the rights of others to hold whatever beliefs they choose, even those that you find objectionable. And please refrain from making negative remarks about other members here."
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind folks of the following from the Rules of Conduct for the forums, here:
Rules of Conduct: Beliefnet Forums
I recognize the very real fact that some may find the beliefs of others objectionable. I ask that in your review of the above, please remember this is a Multifaith forum and we appreciate the Beliefnet spirit of tolerance for any and all beliefs that are expressed within these Rules of Conduct.
Thank you for your kind attention.

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason, my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, for to go against conscience would be neither right nor safe. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.

Hee! I thought things had been postively civil of late, Adelphe.
Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.
