If u invite me into your home for social reasons
and unknowingly, I step into some foul and loathsome substance on your floor,
if u tell me that u did not INTEND for me to step thereinto, I still have to clean the dirt off of my shoe.

@OmSigDAVID,

i think i rankled OSD by posting some less than flattering (about the american military complex) song lyrics on William's freedom thread, generally we seem to be fairly civilized with each other

As Woody Allen said, "I am not afraid of death... I just don't want to be there when it happens".


I guarantee that he IS NOT there when it happens.

Seriously, I think that you can say "[death] happens" if and only if it is true that there are events before and after the event of death. You really have to believe in the afterlife in order to agree or at least to sympathize with Woody Allen.

The reason for my complaint
was that U knowingly and intentionally deposited the foul and abhorent substance
on the floor of the public place WITH THE INTENTION OF ITS BEING [READ] STEPPED UPON by everyone
who responded to your invitation (i.e., to read your post).
The management is INNOCENT.


I only request better and more decent consideration for
the sensibilities of your fellow users of the site.

The personal freedom enjoyed by each American citizen is directly attributable to the efforts of the military
(i.e., our forefathers, in military guise), as the Founders of this Republic.

Thay did it AGAIN, in 3 world wars.

All of my personal liberty, I owe to them.

I will not scorn them. In gratitude, I will defend their memory.

@OmSigDAVID,
it's a pretty common expression david, lots of people (from all walks of life) use it in everyday conversation, you might be the only person who read that and prescribed an excretory meaning to it, as an expression it simply means not good, less than desirable

would you have been so quick to offend if i'd said

"the moslems deciding to build a mosque near ground zero have made a shitty decision"

Burglary is too common. Robbery and murder r too common.
People getting hit by cars or by heart attacks r common.
If it happens to U, see how much better u like it because it is COMMON.

Yes. U have a better vocabulary.

@OmSigDAVID,
not wanting to derail the thread, but he wasn't referring to a war, he was referring to the covert ops in south america, not my idea of a fine moment in american military history, i believe you can praise (the forces in the 2 world wars get my utmost respect) and mock (the actions in south america get my derision)

all soldiers i hold in high esteem, it's their handlers that i question more often than not

I know what happens at death, I dont know the details. There is life after death.




There is life before death. We know it for sure, because I am alive NOW.
There is life after death. We know it for sure, because otherwise I would not have been born.
This is equivalent to "death is an event in time".

Since we know both facts it follows that death is the point where our state of knowing that we are alive NOW changes to the state of knowing that we were alive THEN. Hence we know that we are alive NOW and were alive THEN.

Observe, that we know that this change will happen in the future. And we know that after that change it will have had happened in the past. Thus death happens in the future and the past. This means that death is not an event, contrary to the assumption.

When dead persons let us know they are conscious, after getting buried or cremated, I will consider there may be life after death. As it stands now, there is no iota of proof of it.
