A Joke
    #3446598 - 12/04/04 07:14 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

This joke serves as a good analogy with how I feel about all the religion talk and the preaching in S&P recently:


"It's the story of a guy that goes to see his doctor. He is wearing a top hat. He sits down and takes his hat off. The doctor then notices a frog sitting on a bald head. He gets closer and realizes that the frog is bonded to the man's head.
-And you've had this for a long time? the doctor asks surprisingly.
And then the frog answers:
-Oh you know, doctor, at first it was only a wart under my foot.."


To me, this joke illustrates a concept. Sometimes we make mistakes in the analysis of an event because we stay firmly fixed to the only point of view that seems evident/obvious to us.

Let us not forget that this is

SPIRITUALITY AND PHILOSOPHY

not GOD MUST PROVE HIMSELF and A BOARD OF NON-BELIEVERS

This is a community of many.

Some people are going to be a part of this community and fully accept GOD as real.

In fact there may be a huge growth of such people.


Good joke by the way :grin:

you guys should be more like me.. I'm a super genius who never applies himself with a hyper-creative imagination but no artistic outlet hellishly probing his inner self in an overly-romanticized quest for meaning.. it's sweet.

If I were you guys I'd just listen to everything I say and adopt all my thoughts as your own. Seriously. Do it.

We are free to discuss that which we wish to discuss here, with reasonable limits to keep things on the general topic outlined by this forum; discussion involving God is most certainly included in this.

I'm sorry if people of this community wish to discuss things which lie at odds with your own personal beliefs, but we are free to discuss these things. You continue to beckon to us, saying that "This is Spirituality and Philosophy, you shouldn't be discussing this continously!", but your efforts to conform us to your standard appear quite obtusely.

Once again, you have directly opposed the main topic of this thread, as set by the poster, thereby effectively interupting the flow of proper discussion on the intended topic. The fact that there might be members of this forum that might hold a particular belief does nothing to force us to not discuss issues involving those beliefs.

As you said, this is a community, and this forum does not revolve around you or your beliefs. :smirk: Become a part of the community and influence the way it interacts as a dependant member instead of attempting to stand distinctively and seperately as a pillar that we must center ourselves around and involve ourselves with. We do not require the existance of controlling dictators here. :wink:

Peace. :mushroom2:

yup
we are each stars
reflecting and radiating and re-reflecting
maybe inspiring eachother

there is no scooping up of followers
or wrapping up of everyone else's minds
in our individual *thought blankets.*

well maybe a few funny attempts.

then of course there is the entheogens.

Did you even try to understand what I was implicitly trying to communicate through this post before responding? I don't think so.

I think the first thing that happened in your mind when you read this post is that you felt insecurity in the thought that what you believe is true might not really be so, and so you felt that such an idea could be a potential danger to your own mental balance, and therefore you immediately dismissed it by reclaiming your belief; "God is real".

Of course, I'm just guessing here...

A tophat?(see my avatar) Bald?(see me :grin:)well not totally but
if i were a vain egotistical megalomaniac(which some people might accuse me of by virtue of the fact i am a born again Christian),i might have taken that joke as a pointed reference to myself  :wink:
