Yeah, I've seen $cientologists like this in action, and for the life
of me can't tell any difference between them and Richard, Ann, Jimbo,
and She Whose Holy Work They Are Continuing In Her Absence.
Uber-cultists, the whole lot of them. :-)
I admit to causing part of it by withdrawing my attention from them,
and depriving them of what they really want -- a captive audience at
whom to spew their shit. They're reacting as expected, like junkies
deprived of their fix.
Ann is predictable because this seems to be what she *always* does
when someone dumps her -- she's just substituted me as the object of
her revenge-stalking this time instead of Robin. Richard's the same
troll he's always been, so no surprise there. There has really never
*been* a time during his tenure on a.m.t. and FFL in which he was
sane, so IMO it's kinda silly to expect anything approaching sanity
from him now.
But Jimbo is really the strangest of the lot lately. He's managed to
take the money he inherited, turn that in his mind into some kind of
"success," and then move out into the country, effectively cutting
himself off from all human contact and causing him to make more and
more and more of his lunatic rants. He probably gets up in the middle
of the night and goes out to yell the same thing at the skunks on his
property -- "I'm BETTER than you are! I'm enlightened, and you're NOT.
So there!" :-)
I am reading these posts today in chronological order so I haven't yet
seen anyone's response to this. I would be curious to see Curtis
respond point by point to this post. What do you think about what
bawee has said here Curtis? Maybe by the time I have read everything
up to 7:49 pm my time I will see you have done this already.
/Apparently Curtis does not want to talk about Barry's personal beliefs,
such as a belief in Buddhas, karma, and reincarnation. Obviously Barry
only wants to talk about personalities, not important questions such as
does the universe have a beginning and is there an intelligent agent
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events. Small minds
just like to talk about people. Go figure./
/A belief in Buddhas is not a mental illness - it's just an opinion or a
point of view. Unless Barry is experiencing cognitive dissonance.
//Apparently Barry did not read any of the messages posted by
masked_zebra, so why would Barry be bringing this subject up again when
everyone knows that Barry got his nose bloodied by Judy and Robin a few
months ago on this same subject - St Thomas Aquinas and the prime mover
or first cause.
Sometimes, it is difficult to reconcile a personal belief with logic,
common sense or science. At times it's helpful to read a book, take a
community college course, or consult with your friends about what you
believe. Get another point of view from someone like Sam Harris. So,
Harris is a neuroscientist and a Buddhist - that's interesting.
After reading Harris' books, you'd think that Barry could use some of
that information to make an intelligent point about believing in
reincarnation and karma. Go figure./
