I just wish you would share your feelings instead of closing all your threads...
Most of them were very good too!

I agree with the above sentiment. I started to add to this post (I'm ashamed to say how long I put it off) several weeks ago. I was not going to make a nasty comment. Perhaps it was controversial but not mean or nasty. When it comes to anything having to do with religion it amazes me how intolerant people can still be, especially toward others who are still looking toward the stars for the biggest answers. Why? Because, we, who are looking toward the stars find there are still no answers that will satisfy everyones' system of beliefs.

This controversy is toward the beliefs people have, but not toward the people who hold these beliefs. What is the fear? I don't understand how we can be scientifically oriented and, at the same time, we can be frighteded about what we might find out!

Maybe we are all schizophrenic or, at the very least, maybe what we find out to be scientific truths just don't back up the beliefs we have held for most of our lives that were based on "faith" alone.

That's a fine sentiment, Shari, and I applaud it. And it would be nice to see it come together, especially if it turns out that these are "The Last Days of Disco." ;)

We're all trying, Shari. It may not look that way, sometimes, but it's true. And from time to time we slip, (two steps forward, one backward, two steps forward), but at least we're slowly making progress. I see that in all kinds of little ways, and given time, these will accumulate into something meaningful. It just takes the time it takes, is all.
