And no one expects the Spanish Inquisition!

I don't know why, but your wording reminded me of that. I couldn't resist, sorry.

Totally intentional - glad someone got it!

Hey! I got it too. And am still giggling. And I don't think it's just the drink.

Also, I love posting songs, so there!

Just realised that this is what they're singing and I'm stunned at how appropriate it actually is in this thread. Maybe Johnny ain't the only prophet around Consider

Great. Do you have a point?

That's not a precognitive dream then, is it? And as for confirmation bias: You're right, it could be--but then it might not be.

That's what a soft masters degree gets you? That's what you think I think synchronicity is? Surely you know the term for this, there has to be one, when you oversimplify something in order to shoot it down. Whatever that's called, that's what you're doing. I'm not asking you to believe in astrology. You can believe whatever you want.

Quote:I present you with a challenge: make up a mock chart for yourself adding 6 months to your birthdate. Forget all the descriptions from your "actual" chart. I'd be willing to make a small wager that you'll find the mock chart will describe you perfectly! We see what we want to see.

There's a way of calculating houses. I have used several different methods, which end up doing what you say. The only one that really fits is the one I use, the Placidean method, which is the method I use for all of them. But astrology is just a tool for the psychic arts. I don't think it's a science.

When I interpret a dream and then apply the transiting planets at the time of the dream to the natal chart of the dreamer, I get a way of helping me decide what the symbols in the dream mean, especially when they could mean different things. I have had great success with that.

I don't really like using astrology on its own to predict the future, because the alignment of the planets and stars serve only as an indicator of the fatalistic winds that are blowing on us. But we're driving the sailboat. We have the rudder and the mainsheet on our hands.

I don't care what the Bible says about it. And is that what your MSW and M.Div. get you? You still have to come online and mock people for their beliefs? What a great social worker you're going to make. What a difference tens of thousands of dollars of education can make. Dodgy

My point is you made yourself look foolish again by accusing me of having taken only freshman psychology. Drinking Beverage

And...

Have I made fun of your beliefs or simply pointed out deluded thinking? Consider

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

RE: A Different Wind is Blowing
Only difference in the direction of the wind is the different noxious stenches as far as I can tell, from the south I smell sweaty ballsack, from the west I smell asshole, from the north I smell prick, and from the east I smell a particularly toxic mixture of all 3. Dude's hygiene is questionable.
...
And dude still thinks the map to Honah Lee is real and and shit and he just gotta keep looking for it (fuckin' Vera sending Girly down the reminiscence rabbit hole and shit Tongue).



As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

This bullshit from the nurse who threatens people, and the church founder who is the master of insults. Look who's talkin. The guy who knows that all atheists are atheists because they want to sin. Yes indeed. Look who's talkin. The best advertisement for atheism yet. Edward J. Gordon RN, Insulting, Presumptuous Psycho Nurse, at your service. He's so Jebus-like, it'll blind ya. Weeping
