    Let's not forget to recognize what really saved Joe's life; modern medicine, knowledge & technology thanks to the hard work of science in the last few hundred years, especially the last few decades. As the average life span of humans just 100 years ago was something like 30, we all have that, and modern Dentistry to thank for our longer lives.

    It may be that people really think that their prayers do good, and it may be that frogs imagine that their croaking brings spring.

    Take care Joe.

    it may be that Colin is the single most insensitive phuqwit that we all managed not to insult 2 weeks ago when his asinine comments could not be addressed without further degrading a moment of more important emotions... now i will say take your phuqing high horse importance to some other phuqin thread Colin... you're pissing off a lot of folks being such a god damn a$$hat!!

    The fact is... Collin...

    Finding out that others are doing what they can when there is not much hope relieves stress. When circumstances appear grim and there seems to be little good on the horizon a little compassion and personal support in a word and deed from others goes a long way.

    Releasing this stress will allow the body and mind and spirit to heal. Call it whatever one may whether it be Karma, Prayer, or JuJu. I know its affects first hand it works.

    When he got to St. Peters gate, he found out Pete was a republican and afetr looking over his past he was told he was not ready yet and thrown back into the pool with the rest of us.
    :Welcome:back Flatlander :):):):):):):)

    After all our tears and prayers, are you going to be nice to all of us?

    Nice. I encourage you to actually read any and all comments I made on those older threads Doug. I suggest that you will find that they are sensitive to Joe & his partner at this difficult time, and if you........all of you..... had any idea of just how much restraint I've exercised on this matter in the last week or so in the face of the continuous, irrational, superstitious and overt claims of how "prayer works", you'd be presenting me with an award right now. I've bitten my tongue so much it's freekin' bloodied.

    If people choose to get pissed off and "claim offence" like a wound spring, all because one or two individuals happen to point out the obvious thing (medical help) that helped Joe survive as opposed to the totem pole that they prayed to, that's their problem.

    Once he gets back he can tell us what it's like on the other side.
    Should be a good tale.

    Whatever works for individuals is alright by me.

    I just hope that all and sundry will respect Colin's non belief and resist the offering of prayer in a time of need. This goes for Colin's family and friends. Hopefully they will respect his belief and simply rely on modern medicine and modern medicine only.

    Colin I respect your position. I don't agree with it - but respect it.

    I can only assume you have not had any reason to seek faith in the power of prayer. Maybe you have had reason and that path failed you?

    Good Lord ( no pun intended) we all need a little faith in something in this crazy old world.

    My prayers are certainly openly on offer for those that beieve in all avenues for a positive outcome.

    Cheers - G

    Colin, you were & are a degradation to your surroundings for ONE very important reason, and it is NOT your spiritual beliefs or lack thereof... not for you rightful claim to freedom to express your beliefs (in the proper place and time) ...nor you rightful wish to be free from forceful expression of other beliefs thrust upon you, around you, or in any unreasonably oppressive manner intending to convert berate, or judge you...

    No, you are not guilty again of degrading an auspicious moment in time, among a significant community of conscientious and tolerant diversity, aligning themselves for this rare moment, to overlook differences, rise above semantics, and work around ego, pride and righteousness to find harmony, power, unity and if any so desire, even hope or understanding, through sharing the emotional maze of our short presence on this planet... simply because you do not choose to align yourself with the concept of prayer...

    You are an insensitive phuqwit because you don't have enough sense to recognize that unless someone tells you THEIR Christ, died for YOUR evil sinning ways... and to badger YOU to believe, repent & surrender... then a few simple references to the word or the concept of random, nondenominational prayer does NOT invite you to **** all over everyone else's largely unspoken beliefs with your tired old weakass victim pleas of unfortunate and intolerant claims to religious freedom from the mere mention of an innocent word like "pray"

    I had to put this creep (Colin) on my ignor list, because he was sending me PMs.

    The best way to deal with him, is to ignor him!

    So shouldn't that mean any discussion of prayer should be removed??

    yeah, and no more polls, never say "vote" and I guess "win" would be out, and hmmm... no more use of "majority" or "minority opinion" and no counting posts, cause that's like counting votes... oops... said vote again..

    geezus buttons (note, merely a use of a derivative of geeze, or gee whiz) I PRAY TO DOG we don't get so f'n politically correct we cater to extremism like this :frustrated:

    if i pray to my dog that hyper sensitive people grow a set of balls, believe me, that ain't religious... that is the same simple antagonistic mockery of whiny crybabies that made this site famous! :rock-n-roll:
