Introductions / Re: Hello!

Well, Sister Agatha, if you are genuine, you seem to be, like many "true believers," unwilling to challenge slights on your religion. Is this because, say, it is so indoctrinated into your mindset that you are honestly unable to find any adequate response? "Oh, dear, how can you say such things?" being the gist of your thoughts?

Not being able to even begin to understand the basis of the "attack", lacking that insight into either your own or another's mindset, your main defence is to either ignore or reply with the "standard",  phraseology. This, of course, does nothing to advance the discussion or the understanding of anyone's stance and, inevitably, makes all such discussions pointless, repetitive loops.

So, why, in your personal understanding of such things, does your god allow some good people to die young, often in terrible pain and distress, whilst saving others who, maybe, have never done a good thing in their lives?

If you have no answer you probably have no true understanding, are blindly following a fantasy taught to you at an impressionable age or impressed on you during a time of mental illness. Thus you suffer a cognitive and  intellectual disability not necessarily of your own making. What a pity, I feel sorry for you.

There is a large spider running around on the floor. I can cope with the spider it's just my lazy dog (Katie) woofing at it that's pissing me off.

My friend's dog would have eaten it.

I honestly have great respect for devout Jews, and feel they should be supported but also at least told about the Catholic Church.

 :doh: The Jews have the better part of two millennia's worth acquaintance with the Catholic church, SisterAgatha. As those years rolled by they were intermittently getting the crap kicked out of them, and this was incited and encouraged by the Catholic church.

Maybe they are working on something sinister.  :suspicious: It is a Catholic university hospital after all...

No it's just God fucking with you because you're an atheist.

Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur could easily pass as Catholic feast days, or days of fasting. The mourners Kaddish is really sort of a jewish version of Catholic prayers for the dead. Spend some time in a  traditional synagogue. It honestly looks like a hebrew version of a luxurious Catholic Church.

I honestly have great respect for devout Jews, and feel they should be supported but also at least told about the Catholic Church
Given that Catholicism came after Judaism Catholic feast days could well pass for their predecessor Jewish celebrations.

I've been anxious myself. Posted quite a bit too, here and elsewhere.
Well the world didn't end (again) so we can also relax.

:sad sigh: I've been feeling anxious all day.
But I don't want to talk about it.
I've been excessively posting all day.
Sorry about that.  :run!:
There is no such thing as excessive posting  :snooty:
