Too bad you're slinging the really crazy shit, and not one of the standard theologies of which I can eviscerate with little effort. Tell us again about your argument from personal experience...so there you were...embracing the chakras....and as one....watched someone physically levitate. I don't even need to dismantle your worldview...it so off the chart nuts you are undermining yourself without any assistance required. Carry on, you are doing swell. Thumbsup

I could give you a mirror for your birthday and you'd be set for life talking to yourself and entertaining yourself. I of course understand your point of view as it belies a common mind given to snap assertions. You must confuse me for a younger person devoid of reason, experience, and an educational background that might include a degree from Stanford, Yale, or Notre Dame. I've been at this a long while. I am not insulted nor rendered off balance by the vitriol here. I always consider the source. Not that I necessarily know the source, but then, the source also does not know me, yet it continues its ad hominem ways, free of filtering. I realize that none of you has sat in full lotus in a domed structure with 1500 other sidhas and practiced the levitation sutra. It lies well outside your common experience. What separates you, one from the other, are those who might take someone at their word and ask for more information, and then those who summarize, discount, marginalize,and dismiss in one motion. I figure its a given that most here have an IQ in the top .01% (percentile). But many of you are doing your best to hide that fact.

The vitriol so far seems to have started from you in reference to me anyway. You had the audacity to imply I am ignorant....which is far from the reality, trust me. You will learn in due course my ability to intellectually eviscerate religion, philosophy and magic. If I walked into your little corner of the world, and asserted that I sat in a domed room with 150 other people, and witnessed our leader rise into the air, fire lightning out of his fingertips, and raise the dead with a glance...I would hope you would be skeptical. Whenever people purport things that go outside the laws of known and observable science, they should expect skeptics to be derisive. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.....heck I will take ordinary evidence....and eyewitness testimony doesn't count. People think they see all sorts of crazy shit. When one posits magic, one should expect disbelief.

Oh great and wise master! won't you please teach me in your ways?


No seriously. I thought I was full of myself and had an ego.... You seriously put me to shame. How you manage to pack such an enormous ego into such a tiny head and not have crossed the schwarzchild radius is amazing.

OOOH! Gasp Is THAT what that website you linked to talking about? Your consciousness really IS a black hole stuffed inside your head?

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Right now I'm trying to divine who among you are on serious meds. Whose meds need tweaking. And who should be on a leash every time they leave their house.

As you can see from my original comment, I try to treat everyone that comes here, who doesn't seem like an ass right off the bat, with respect, and give them the benefit of the doubt. Like, "maybe they have something that can at least make for good debate?". For instance, the Kalam cosmological argument is false, but I've seen some apologists at least present it in a way that made for good debate. Well, now I can see you are a self-righteous, presumptuous ass, whose only "evidence" is "watch these YouTube vids, bro". Come on, man. :/

And acting like a petulant brat when people want you to back your shit up is no way to go about it. Surely, you can do better than that, my friend.

My best guess is:

Psycho Meds: Wellbutrin, Trazadone, Seroquel, Lexapro
Diabetes Meds: Metformin, Januvia, Invokana
AntiNausea Meds: Zofran, Meclizine

At least that's what I take. Big Grin

Never heard that phrase before.

Does Wellbutrin still come as a little pill where the writing looks like a smiley face? I haven't been on that particular drug in years, but you're not far off.

That smiley face on my anti-depressant used to crack me up.

Maybe you should share your Seroquel with Obie... I think he might need some.

I think you're confusing Wellbutrin with blotter. Easy mistake to make Big Grin
