Yet another day you are proclaiming a blind guess...to be knowledge!

Hey...it brings laughter...and laughter helps makes a day more and more delightful.

Hope all is well with you, Onevoice.

Yeah, you have. You have twice asserted that you do KNOW if any gods exist or not.

Glad you see it that way, Onevoice.

Makes this a win/win discussion.

Just because it appears to YOU to be a blind guess, does not in fact MAKE it a blind guess. Knowledge expands far beyond ones personal thoughts and ideals.

@Frank Apisa,
Another day when due to the power of advertising I still see cigarettes when I look at pyramids.

That reminds me of the old joke:

Wife: Does this dress make my butt look fat?

Husband: No...your fat butt makes your butt look fat.

A blind guess is a blind guess...because it is a blind guess.

If you want to pretend it is knowledge...go for it.

The notion is good for laughs.

Really!

Well...sometimes when a person does not want to acknowledge that he/she is making a blind guess...

...that person will say stuff like, "Knowledge expands far beyond ones personal thoughts and ideals. "

Knowledge is knowledge, Onevoice...a blind guess is a blind guess.

And no amount of drivel will change that.

@Frank Apisa,
Maybe you should start a dictionary of Frankisms, because words and phrases mean something different to you than everyone else.

@Frank Apisa,
Good Morning Frank. Smile

Well said. Unfortunately just because it is "knowledge" doesn't make it correct. For example: A child is born into abusive household. Eventually removed from home and placed in foster care, who in return only uses them for an extra paycheck every month to support their habits, and abuses them as well. Finally they are old enough to go out in their own. What happens next? Most of the time a string of abusive relationships.

Why? Because they are following the only string of "knowledge" they have been shown. An abusive lifestyle. All their life those abuses have told them and then reconfirmed over and over they are somehow of less value than everyone else in this world, among many other things. Perhaps even that they deserve to be treated in such a way, since that is all they have ever known.

The only way for them to walk away from such things is to start believing something different about themselves and the world they live in. If they choose to just plop down, cross their arms, and say, "This world sucks. People suck. I hate it here." Their life will never change. However, if they stand up and decide, "Well something's not right here, this doesn't seem to be happening to everyone else."

And then take some steps, like counselling, to try and peer through that tiny little crack in their faulty knowledge and see things differently, their life can change. But only when they are willing to seek a higher knowledge than they have previously been believing. So yes Frank, knowledge does expand far beyond ones personal thoughts or ideals. If not we wouldn't need books, counselors, school, google or even each other.

I believe Izzy proved my point exactly. The mind is an easily manipulated thing when it is weak. So, once again...

Yet another day I do know. Smile Hope you have a good one!

Frankly, Izzy, you may have ferreted out Frank's foremost feature, his phrenetic Frankisms.
But fear not.
I find Frank to be a fine fellow

Really? That's what you thought I meant when I wrote this?

Two countries divided by a shared language doesn't even scratch the surface of that one.

I don't think they do.

And if there are subtleties involved, I explain the subtlety to which I am referencing.

Not sure what that has to do with Machu Picchu, but you do drift off at times.

Yet another day where you do not know, Onevoice, but just refuse to acknowledge you do not know.

But...you are free to stick with your blind guess about whether gods exist or not...and you are free to pretend it is knowledge.

No ****, Neo.


Hey, Glum Puss.

Still at it, huh?

Aching to come back to get bloodied again?
