Is being in an open relationship, in an intimate relationship, practicing open mindedness? How?
I have had a relationship that ended because it was disfunctional even though she "loved me always and will always love me" the relationship had a problem from the beginning somewhere that I found the last issue breaking us up was not having sex before marriage because of a religions view. Even though in the beginning I was primed or groomed as a toyboy as my mum put it but she always had insecurity issues and intimacy issues that only drew me nearer and to fall in love with her. So I committed my part and got close... which brings me to think that if you love someone you only should share that sacredness with them and you should know this from the beginning of the relationship! why would anyone in their right mind be with someone just to gain at an advantage of another human that would be greatly happy and bennifit from being in love with the right person and having someone rightly love them. We went through many experiences that made us see the importance of not hurting the other person and it took us through to being engaged but this wasnt enough for this person to see I was committed even though this was the degree of the relationship religion still interfered with our selves and the potence of how we came together!!! so I tried many thing to try to conform to this person and still it ended up breaking up something that begun special and beautiful when we were together... I even went down the path of why condoms were invented and was it a catholic thing that god didnt want people to be together unless they were matramonally married (in which I still havent been convinced and have read my bible every day looking for that answer from God) cannot share what happens when to people have shared and are intimately involved in a relationship which is special and committed to stay together.

Jenna McCarthy: What you don't know about marriage
Hi Sheila, Im damien, I have been married 9 yrs and i have alot of experiences good and bad from my marriage, also I have been in absolutely deluded and disfunctional relationship/s. one thing I have learned was what marriage is all about and divorce from my parents and mine as well. one thing I want to say is my ex wife and I are great friends now and have a beautiful son from our marriage. Im sure i would have more experiences that people would love to share and from looking at the responses from most of the dissappointed readers on hereabout this talk; whether people are from the commercialism or from TED getting so popular they are manipulating the profits and information to benifit their interest and not the subscibers (not to hold anything against TED as there are other ways of accessing information!). I just hope people keep doing this and making contacts as i would love to share this and other knowlegde in the future.damien mcminn facebook

Why do we let this happen in the world?
You tell me who was the first human to begin the human race simply the product of the bible is handed down story of what initially has controlled and caused our understanding of someone greater than the universe or a God. Just think that you mentioned a mixture of protons, electrons, atoms forming different beings and animals. The latest section of this book (Genesis an Enigma) that is written by a scientist and well travelled man with great references to great historical and palaeontology. He speaks of the first eyeball being born (who would of thought of this?) and how it resembles a jellyfish and how that is one of the oldest and first animals that whether you think God or just science created. But my argument in support of Christianity and living a good life by simply being a Christian follower. The story is quite uncanny how science, archaeology, history and scholars and the famous people (like say Moses) I’ve spoken about all get their inspiration get their knowledge and genius and abilities to tell a story or open the rulers of this worlds minds about Faith and Belief explain what affects us. IS proven and to predict the events so accurately as they the scientists unravel their discoveries. The life of Jesus, Adam and Eve was all evident to these books in the Old Testament. I’m just saying this book I've read has been such an inspiration because of the wonder of science for me to believe more in how good my Christian walk is back to my Bible.

science is exactlly proven that history and people existed and science today modern or not has shown that light , matter and human evolution/ecology came from one big source and devinity and power but grace lives with simply being like jesus. I have nothing against scientists and no need to rebuke them. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- THE WORD BECAME FLESH.

Can you tell stewart also that as much as the Muslims have alot of covenants and secret scrolls and secrets to be protected. these famous scientists in thier days had to avoid having an opinion and dicoveries as the CHURCHES and Kings and Queens would of had the put to death. So let olone them having a a religion they didnt know the love of Godly and Spiritual people. But I can garentee People like Einstein in there last moments and it is written and witnessed cried out for forgivenes and the love of Jesus. "Genesis Enigma" he asked me about the book and maybe both Gerard and Stewart should read it. I didnt learn much at school and I certainly have not been an academic and only started to read the Bible 17 years ago and learnt to read. I really enjoy reading books like this now and sorry you are so angry stuart. I dont need the criticism and turn me off ther books I have been able to fill in alot of gaps. Geology and Science mean alot more to me now the book it was given to me by and beautiful old man at my work; doesnt talk anything religion or speak much just thought after I was telling him about the Bible. I might like to read!

the author endeavours to explain THE BIG BANG THEORY and how biblical txt has been proven to alighn with the word of God and todays knowledge. An interesting look at how the universe was created. The Bible is about power and the covenant of life and beauty of a greater man than Newton.

How does bilingualism make you feel?
Married 9 years to a Lebanese girl and friend now have tried to learn the language; and chinese. I absorbed myself in the culture! from an aboriginal australian background i found it hard to switch my mind into the pace and spirit that they experience. if you study thier words the images and pictures they would experience in thier minds help language to flow. for instance my ex wifs name was Salam meaning "peace" and Ive been told my name Damien mean "Diamond" pronounced Almas. as my english language is expressed and my interpretation of comprehension I formulate sentences and I produce little scenorios (scuse my spelling i just want to express myself here quickly to get this clear... :-).) anyway so I couldnt do it in the end. My son hes 7 but i watch him when I have friends and work collegues talk to him in arabic and his mum speaks to him although he doesnt; I notice his body language and hes adhears to the spiritual and cultural side and his demeana changes... I listen to the language and even when people speak to me in english and i dont hear some thing clearly i still 5-6 years later after stopped trying to learn arabic and involving myself in the culture. i hear sounds like... and can interpret the words i learned in arabic. so i understand arabic just cant speak fluently by switching- my english is too strong! thanks for your question :-) i liked trying to explain my experience.

sorry Stewart just on before politics/science Yahweh It is discovered that the book of genesis wasn’t written by Moses alone. With my lack of knowledge of this book and I believe in I'm going to find it hard to explain to you, but ill try. It is supposed that genesis has been written by a number of sources as it is called in this book. these sources (4 or 5 of them) d, e, f, g say; when the research that has been done on the book Genesis and through archaeological references and history that the scribers are from different areas and tribes that they can tell that analytically and psychological reference that the scribers or individual writers were influenced and had geological, economical pressures and influences in their writing at that time which is why they know that Moses didn’t write it on his own. also they were all related and are say priests or scholars entrusted by Moses and it goes on in the book Genesis Enigma in the appendix; of the book because I started reading there at the back. when it goes into details and it is written in the Bible too that these respected sources have to write and are entrusted in writing the scripts have to re right, was them selves if using the words Yahweh for example; and if they make one letter mistake when writing the Torah that whole chapter has to be re written and approved by the high priests or who ever. The Jewish writers of these text's still practice this method today but you would have to read up on that for the details. what I've found is the front of the book which you would of properly read as I have put on this conversation interesting is that the Jehovah’s that came to my house with the similar question that has been raised in this topic here is that I was motivated to read further into the relevance of how important it was for politics and art and how scientific this book is that I love the story and how the big bang theory and Michelangelo has escalated my courage to continue to love bible study more.
