Well I don't want to ruin this but I believe yours is breaking the forum rules and will undoubtedly upset someone pretty soon!

Edit: Well apparently not. It's just me that gets banned for minor missteps apparently. So:

Nice quote!


But I think they would say the same about us non-religious people. How can you not see the divine when it's right in front of you? ;)

That's nice. But I always wondered how does that go together with "An eye for an eye?"

"Our [Persian/Medean] friend brings us excellent tidings. If [their arrows] darken the sun, we shall have our fight in the shade."

Dieneces, a Spartan general to his troops when an ambassador threatened that the Persians brought thousands of archers to the battlefield.

Don't get me started on religions too much. But I'll say this. Religion is in the first place Culture, Law and Morals; and beliefs second.
Don't mix ancient customary criminal law embedded in religious texts as the moral of peace and respect for each other that is equally embedded in all major religions.

Interpretations can obviously be abused, as they have been, often. But that's another story.

Thank you, and yes my family does seem to be a fountain of inspiration

Your post has nothing in it. Rocks don't say anything. I concluded you were quoting a rock. My logic is infallible.

But yeah somebody is going to complain eventually.
as a non religious person i actually do not consider myself an atheist. Something is out there. And religion? Its okay if you have one. As long as you dont start to attack/insult/kill the ones who dont believe.
This also includes gays, lesbians and bisexuals. I have several lesbians as very close friend and a friend i know is gay.And i shall protect them even tough i am straight.

This brings me to one of house most famous quotes, wich involves every person on this planet=

Quote

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Tennyson, Ulysses.
