Well the "starving third-world country" test is one of the easiest ways to question (or deny) the existance of a loving God...




Who here is discussing the existance of a loving God? :wtf:

We are discussing how one's actions within reality inevitably lead to the results of those interactions. One presses a door bell, and it rings. Cause and effect. Simple. Now, what's the problem?

I maintain that my grammaticism is rich and affluent. Unless you can demonstrate exactly how it is that my usage of the English language is  objectively confusing, and that said confusion isn't simply the result of your own inability to understand my usage of the English language, then your point has no merit. 

Quote:


, stopped using such big words and trying to appear smarter than you are,




:lol:

I express myself as I naturally express myself. My understanding of the English language is what it is, and my application of that understanding occurs as a result. I do not concern myself with my intellectual appearance, as I am merely interested in openly discussing and exchanging ideas for the advancement of my own and others understanding of reality.

Would you take my word for it? How the fuck would you know who and what I am? Because I used this word or said that statement? Please consider becoming a psychologist, as your analysis of my character is priceless.

Quote:


and just got your point across without all the posing and quasi-intellectual bullshit then maybe we could have a more coherent discussion.




My point could not be conveyed if I restricted my expressions as they are naturally formed in order to dumb them down to a level whereat the lowest common denominator can understand. "Like, dude, whatever". How profound!

You tell me that I need to simplify my communications, well, I tell you that you need to advance yours.

Quote:


"If one was actually devoted to not starving, then one wouldn't starve.
"
And take yourself seriously? That's one of the least intelligent things I've heard for ages.




As I have already stated, devoting oneself to a certain act is to perform and engage in that act. If one was devoted to not starving, then, obviously, one would be consuming food.

If one consumes an adequate amount of food necessary to survive, then one doesn't starve!

Oh. my. fucking. god. Cause and effect. Where is the intelligence in that? :rolleyes:

Quote:


I await your reply dotted with smiling smileys and self-satisfied smugness

Ahh yes, the age old commentary on the usage of emoticons. :lol:

Honestly, anyone with a sense of humor doesn't have a problem with them. :smirk:

Exactly, as it is the act of getting your hands on it that defines that one deserves it, as one has devoted oneself towards getting one's hand on it!

But I've been informed that such is the least intelligent comment ever. :frown:

What Do You Deserve?

I deserve nothing....    Simply put....

I spend time working towards things I need and want in life, sometimes I get those things, sometimes I don't.... 
Sometimes I spend time (working) on hobbies that can   bring me self satisfaction, sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't.... 

Do I deserve what I get...?  No.... 
I do however appreciate it when I work for something and get a desired result.... 
Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't.... 

Somehow I see it as separate from deserving   anything....  :shrug:

The idea of "deserving" anything is flawed. You don't deserve shit. Neither do I. Make your reality...don't feel that you must be worthy.

Yes, I agree with you on the standard definition of "deserve." What I found interesting was that the etymology indicated that "worthy" is not an accurate definition.

What do you think of the idea that what we SERVE is what we "deserve"? That it is really not about whether we are worthy or not, but about our focus and action being aligned with our stated goals and values?

On Tuesday I will give two weeks notice at my current job. I have arranged to work part-time as a nanny while I build my client base for my bookkeeping business. The consequences of these choices will be exactly what I deserve.


Tuesday afternoon. Did you give notice, did you get what you deserve?

I think that this is less cut and dried than one might suppose. I agree that when ones focus and action are in line with their "stated goals and values" that they will more easily acheive their end. BUT I have a problem with "deserve". http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=deserve
It implies either reward or punishment is being meted out in a moral sense. It is possible that one can become prosperous "serving" up many unsavory things. Many military commanders order men to their deaths and go to bed at night .....even eventually to their grave....comvinced that they had served mankind in a positive sense. These people may be convinced that they are morally enlightened people. They may never suffer one negative consequence for their action. On the contrary many forgotten people have died in the moral service of others having recieved little or no reward.

In the end there is only intent or lack of it. Those possesing intent will acheive their goals, while those who do not will fail. If you have intent your actions will be naturally in line with your goals. I do get your point, but I have a hard time getting past "deserve".

My last day is May 3! 

I'll have 1.5 weeks vacation between old job & self-employment.  (Exactly what I "deserve." :grin:)

Vacation? Vacation? Vacation?

Good news you are already self employed the bad news is the work starts today.

Well duh, you are both on vacation!  :tongue:

When I became self-employed my boss was great at first and then he turned into a real slave driving asshole!  :thumbdown:  After I threatened to quit and he knew I was serious he lightened up a little.  We take more breaks now.  :grin:
