I still think I'm in my early 20's, but I'm not. Maybe it has to do with not having any children. Maybe it is because I've always been into horse racing. Maybe it is because I haven't done much interacting with friends in person the last 4 years. Maybe it is the internet. Maybe it has to do with riding a bike.
I still have dreams that I'm in my 20's. I've dated a lot of chicks the last few months in my dreams. I have hair on the top of my head in those dreams too, and I'm sometimes married and sometimes separated and sometimes single.
Sometimes I'm in high school or university. It is like a Twilight Zone episode. When I go to sleep, I usually travel back in time.
Getting back to being 44. I may look it, but I don't feel it, until I actually do something too physical that is.

Wasn't it the Mormons who God (portrayed as some kind of amphibian) said was the right religion on Southpark. In fact God was a Buddhist in that show. That is such a funny concept.
The reason I'm even mentioning this is that whenever I see really religious people on TV (mostly Christians) they seem to have this gleam in their eyes and have complete faith in Christ and God. I'm still not sure if Christ is God or the son of God or both, or sometimes he's the son of God and sometimes he is the Lord. It is very confusing, even for someone as unbelievably intelligent as myself.
I'm not picking on Christians here. Many religious Jews believe the Chosen stuff. Many will say they don't, many don't. Many do. In fact, many unreligious Jews think Jews are the one, but not for relgious reasons obviously but because of survival, a commitment to family and education, etc.
The point is every religious person think they are right. Of course, this is impossible. And it usually boils down to ones birthright. If someone is born to Mormon parents, they will tend to believe Mormonism is 100% right, if they have Jewish parents, then it is Judaism baby, Muslim parents: Allah is number one, and so on.
Think about it, this is just craziness when it comes down to it.
Of course there are those who convert into a religion. Many do so not so much because they think that the religion they are converting to is the right one, most of the time it is due to social factors. There are exceptions of course. But because people sincerely pick Islam, Judaism, Catholicism, Mormonism, OK not Mormonism, how could anyone not born to Mormon parents possibly choose that one for fundamental reasons?
Anyways, even I think I'm right. No god, and religion is just a way to try to make sense of life while hoping desperately for an afterlife, while the leaders try to brainwash and control their flock.
I guess I'm just as guilty as a Mormon, who thinks he has the right beliefs. Although I became an Atheist very honestly and it was a rational choice in my Never Humble Opinion.

Either the Devil really has perfected the art of diabolical mimicry or there is a mystery to solve here. Let's review the evidence:

- Jesus is the saviour of mankind, God made man, the Son of God equal with the Father; so is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is born of a mortal virgin who after her death ascends to heaven and is honoured as a divine being; so is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is born in a cave on 25 December or 6 January, as is Osiris-Dionysus.

- The birth of Jesus is prophesied by a star; so is the birth of Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is born in Bethlehem, which was shaded by a grove sacred to Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is visited by the Magi, who are followers of Osiris-Dionysus.

- The Magi bring Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, which a sixth-century BCE Pagan tells us is the way to worship God.

- Jesus is baptized, a ritual practised for centuries in the Mysteries.

- The holy man who baptizes Jesus with water has the same name as a Pagan god of water and is born on the summer solstice celebrated as a Pagan water festival.

- Jesus offers his followers elemental baptisms of water, air and fire, as did the Pagan Mysteries.

- Jesus is portrayed as a quiet man with long hair and a beard; so is Osiris-Bionysus.

- Jesus turns water into wine at a marriage on the same day that Osiris-Dionysus was previously believed to have turned water into wine at a marriage.

- Jesus heals the sick, exorcises demons, provides miraculous meals, helps fishermen make miraculous catches of fish and calms the water for his disciples; all of these marvels had previously been performed by Pagan sages.

- Like the sages of the Mysteries, Jesus is a wandering wonder-worker who is not honoured in his home town.

- Jesus is accused of licentious behaviour, as were the followers of Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is not at first recognized as a divinity by his disciples, but then is transfigured before them in att his gIory; the same is true of Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is surrounded by 12 disciples; so is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus rides triumphantly into town on a donkey while crowds wave branches, as does Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is a just man unjustly accused of heresy and bringing a new religion, as is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus attacks hypocrites, stands up to tyranny and willingly goes to his death predicting he will rise again in three days, as do Pagan sages.

- Jesus is betrayed for 30 pieces of silver, a motif found in the story of Socrates.

- Jesus is equated with bread and wine, as is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus' disciples symbolically eat bread and drink wine to commune with him, as do the followers of Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus is hung on a tree or crucified, as is Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus dies as a sacrifice to redeem the sins of the world; so does Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus' corpse is wrapped in linen and anointed with myrrh, as is the corpse of Osiris-Dionysus.

- After his death Jesus descends to hell, then on the third day resurrects before his disciples and ascends into heaven, where he is enthroned by God and waits to reappear at the end of time as a divine judge, as does Osiris-Dionysus.

- Jesus was said to have died and resurrected on exactly the same dates that the death and resurrection of Osiris-Dionysus were celebrated.

- Jesus' empty tomb is visited by three women followers; Osiris-Dionysus also has three women followers who visit an empty cave.

- Through sharing in his passion Jesus offers his disciples the chance to be born again, as does Osiris-Dionysus.

Discounting the 'diabolical mimicry' argument, as all sane people must, how are we to explain these extraordinary similarities between Pagan myth and the story of Jesus?

What If The Arabs Accepted The Partition

I guess it isn't discussed much because it is like wondering what if we had money trees in our backyards. Anyways, back to the point.
Jews were given 55% of the Holy Land, the Arabs were to get around 40%. Under that plan, the Jews would rule the Jewish land and the Arabs would rule the Arab land.
Fact is, Arabs have higher birth rates than Jews. Pretty soon, the Arab population would have greatly outnumbered the Jewish population.
Of course, for this to happen, there would have to be complete peace, and tensions would have to have been immediately resolved.
Honestly, I don't think the Jews would mind, as long as Jews could immigrate to Israel and there was peace with no chance of genocide.
Jews don't mind it in the USA, and we only make up 2% of the population. We only need 1.4% in order to control things anyways.

Galileo was right. The universe is not earth centered, either is our solar system.
I'm pretty sure that no major religion still believes that the sun revolves around the earth anymore. Yet it took a lot to accept fact.
The time is right to accept evolution as fact. All you have to do is watch a science show on TV or even a nature show and it is always a fact that this and that goes back millions or billions of years. Its accepted on TV. And most of all it makes complete sense. Do creationalists just mock the shows? Do they scream "blashphemy" ? Do they quickly turn the channel? Do they block the channels that show science stuff?
Now, I'm not gonna say that evolution has to mean that creation didn't take place. Although I don't believe that there is a god, I'll respect the fact that the majority does. God could have created the universe, and god could have waited to talk to intelligent beings.....once they evolved into intelligent beings.
It is time for religion to open up to this idea, especially as more and more facts come out. Do creationalists realize how stupid they look? Its one thing to have faith, but faith can't negate facts.
The Unitarian Universalists have the right idea. They even let agnostics in.
