Don't worry Rrex, there is a purpose behind what happened to you. Already you noticed a change and are seeking answers. That is step one to finding the TRUTH..

Good luck getting a solid conversation out of Rrex - he's bolted.

That is ok as I listen to everyone.. I had an experience of the sort back in 1994 and still have trouble explaining it. But nothing compared to the one I had in 2007, that is the one that woke me up.. Been researching ever since..

Errors ? You should elaborate. If you are speaking of so called "contradictions" then your stance not on solid ground.

Interesting how people revert to "name calling" when they don't agree with another.. just goes to show what kind of society we live in. If it make you feel better, feel free to continue with the name calling.. just goes to make my point

Someone has a psychotic 'break" and becomes convinced there's a "Supreme Being?"

Well, shit, that tears it! MUST be true!! Sign me up!!!

There is no "I" in "team" but there is a broken and mixed up "me."

The "A" team don't get involved with the conversation until the new members have stuck around long enough to say something interesting.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Atheist to Believer
Too bad I'm a nice person, because I could start a religion and make millions--the gullibility kills me.

And makes me sad.

While I now suffer residual negative effects from this experience I still believe our lives are directed by something much bigger than ourselves and that everyone would benefit from a week of living in the psychotic state. I imagine it may be likened to alternate realities experienced through illegal drugs, although I, in no way, advocate their use.

That being said, I encourage those who don't believe to look past the rigid dogma of organized religion to see the bigger picture. This experience we're having isn't random. Proof of a creator is all around us. Look at the design of your hand. This in itself is proof that we are subjects of a consummate engineer.

I did, and suffered no such delusion. EVERYTHING you "experience" is completely in your brain, and explained by Neuro-science. The "design" of my hand is 100% secondary to Evolution. You are the victim of "confirmation bias". The "voice in your head" is COMPLETELY *in* your head. Go learn some Neuro-science.

The funny thing is, the hand is pretty damn inefficient; certainly not the work of a 'consummate engineer'.

Also throw some Hydroxyzine Pamoate in there. Helps get it moving.

Hey, Morgan, how's about we just throw in some Hydrogen Peroxide in there too.
That should make his troubles go away pretty damn quick if ingested at the right dosage.
