Curse words.  Most people use them as a replacement for a general vocabulary. Have you ever thought what they are though? 

In Christian mysticism, you could lay curse on someone with the right word.  "God damn you" would supposedly cause the Christian god to actively damn the indicated person.  Witches could do it with the devil in place of god.  Such was the laying on of a curse.

So think about it.  When you tell someone "fuck", you are actually CURSING them to have sex.  In Christian theology, sex is the worst thing you could do.  Having sex one time would lead to the realization of the physical pleasure that comes with the act, leading one to a life of enjoying their physical body instead of pining away the days until death gives form and function to the spirit.  So telling someone to "fuck" or "get fucked" was a horrible curse. 

Many might say this isn't true,  of course.  They think that it is contextual.  It wasn't that long ago though that Christian philosophers and priests and preachers were proclaiming that it would be better for one to die then for them to have sex.  Just over a hundred years ago, loudly and ecstatically they proclaimed that it would be better to die and go to heaven then have sex and love the flesh.

Today, of course, we know that simply shouting a word is not going to have any magical effects.  Calling someone an "ass" is not going to turn them into an ass.  The sting might have been taken out of the speech, but the language is still there.

So, in summary, you might want to watch your language a little.  If you are going to use curse words, don't call people an ass or tell them they are damned.  I can encourage the use of "fuck" because many good things are derived from fucking.  The other terms are not so useful though. 

Thank you.

Just so everyone understands, heaven is real. There really are people living in heaven, for six months or more at a time.

The thing is, there is no judgment coming from the heavens. The crew of the international space station, which sits in the heavens, are busy performing experiments and studying the wonders of our universe. They don't have time to watch people on the planet and make judgment calls about things that really don't concern them.

If people on earth could learn to do the same, so much could be accomplished! 

Just got some very disturbing news.

I have two sisters. One works for Chase Bank and the other banks with them. Recently my one sister went to deposit some cash into her account. They refused to allow it. They said they cannot accept cash deposits any longer.

It's apparently a big brother thing. The reason being is they need to know where the money comes from and where it is going.

So they said she should buy a money order in order to deposit the funds. Also, this is to be the standard in all U.S. banks.

Something needs to be done to stop this.

Hey, I am Lord Dissident, the savior of dissent.

Why is it that whenever I am talking to a religious person, they automatically assume that I am an atheist because I haven't read the bible or learned about god.

My dad is a preacher! I grew up with preaching and bible-thumping. When I was in my early teens, I read the bible cover to cover and asked many questions. All my dad could offer was pat answers that amounted to, "yes it says that but it doesn't really say that son.". They were very unsatisfactory to my ever-curious mind. Eventually I came to realise just why that was, and stopped even trying to believe anymore.

So, whenever I am confronted with people who wish to tell me the gospel, that feel the need to "help me understand", my first instinct is to inform them that I know more than they do. Because for some insane reason, they think that I have never read their holy textbook or understood what it says.

Such insanity!

Just got into this series. At first, I wasn't sure about it. Then I found a reason to keep watching. Now I am totally into it.

This looks AWESOME! Something I will dedicatedly have to try.
With Spring Fever sweeping over everyone after another hard winter of bland, preserved foods, it's no suprise that a number of foods have been 'lightened up' to fit in with the themes of fresh foods and lighter meals.

A fine example is the Fruit Pizza linked below, which combines fresh spring fruits with what amounts to a giant cookie crust. It's sure to add a touch of freshness to any outdoor event or picnic.

Here is a question to ponder, is it moral or ethical for a Christian to have a pet?

Think on this for a minute. Our pets depend on us for everything. Without us, they could starve to death. In many cases, they can't leave the house unless someone opens the door. We bathe them and take care of them. They get lonely when we aren't around.

Christians think that they are going to be snatched up any day now, without warning. Here one minute, gone the next.

So what happens to their pets? Are they left to die while these Christians poof off into the sky? Do they even care?

I, for one, think it extremely unethical. When you get a pet, you are obliged to take care of it. If you think that you are going to disappear, then you are planning to abandon them to their fate.

I suppose it might be moral though. That Christian morality construct and all. Perhaps god likes the sounds of suffering animals.

Maybe it's all part of his divine plan.
