    Feb 5 2013: My ole granny was wise beyond her years. She said .... the truth is in the pudding".

    According to engineers a bumble bee cannot ... or should not ... be able to fly ... yet it does.

    There is one fact that you cannot "disapprove" to me. My grand children are perfect. In this case thinking it so makes it so. Ah .. Ah .. not arguable. LOL

      Feb 5 2013: So its belief and faith that make it real? Whether that be this "material" world or "spiritual" world?


      Yeah thing like that exist every where, thats why I love mythbusters so much.

      Like the bull in a china shop. Actually a bull is quite graceful in a china shop

        Feb 5 2013: In the final analysis ... yes. We make a decision to buy .. believe ... or invest our faith .. in a product .. theory ... or person. The final decision is ours ... and we own it.

        I live in an area where there are tons of elk .. I am always amazed at how they can traverse through the thick forest so quietly with giant racks.

        Mythbusters are a hoot.

        Thanks for the reply.

        I wish you well. Bob.

        Feb 6 2013: Casey, I do not think we "have" to chose a "God" to worship. We are a social animal .. we travel in packs / tribes / and are part of a culture. We join with those who we are most comfortable with or those who share our wants and desires.

        If you had no religion and Joe was your best buddy and you trusted him you would probally attend his church if asked or because you want to "share" in his environment the same as going out to games, dances, etc ... Hunters get along with hunters ... fishermen ... car enthusiasts ... etc...

        No one can make you chose or join ... we do it because we are social animals.

        That may not all be true ... but it is how I see it.

        Bob.
