Makes me want to remember this.

"Whenever possible, substitute constructions out of known entities for inferences to unknown entities." - Bertrand the BigAss Bitch Russell, Logical Atomism

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.

RE: Words I want to remember
"There is a science that has for its object only things incomprehensible. Contrary to all other sciences, it treats only of what cannot fall under our senses. Hobbes calls it "the kingdom of darkness". It is a country, where every thing is governed by laws, contrary to those which mankind are permitted to know in the world they inhabit. In this marvellous region, light is only darkness; evidence is doubtful or false; impossibilities are credible: reason is a deceitful guide; and good sense becomes madness. This science is called theology, and this theology is a continual insult to the reason of man."
-Baron D'Holbach, "Good Sense"

Why would any rational person want to be like me or have anything to do with the God I know or the Christ I say I have become?

Well said, Ed, well said. Yes
