Barry's preferred definition of God appears to be an old man with a beard who resides above, and harshly judges people.
He likes this characterization because he feels it is easier to lampoon. And he's been a roll lately. A target rich environment of his own making. No, it doesn't make a lot of sense. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Ann, Your observation is excellent. It appears that for some people here think that being called a "believer" is uncool and, a worst, an Ebola case. As such, they avoid giving any logical evidence for their assertions in order to be undefined, ambiguous and definitely not known as a "believer". Who would have thought the B word has become pejorative? I know and it is very random. Because every single human being on this planet has hundreds if not thousands of beliefs that they act on every day of their lives. Beliefs are not something you can not change in an instant nor do they necessarily result in death, dismemberment or fatal disease. Often they are very private things that undergo constant revision in the mind of the believer or non believer. It is as easy to change one's mind (belief set) as it is to sneeze. It is not beliefs that are dangerous it is what someone does with the belief just as it is an exercise in futility to go around poo pooing other's beliefs in an effort to do - what? Change them? Mock them? Show the believer how superior you are in your alternate beliefs? Those who claim they don't believe in anything are like those who claim they don't need a solid surface to occasionally stand upright on.
