I am certainly glad not to be Mr. Fish. By now I’d be choking to death from all of the speculative words everyone is shoving into my mouth.
Please stop with the over-wrought metaphysics. WE ARE A GUN CULTURE. It has become our religion. And in the eyes of the world, we have been voted most likely to shoot the hand that feeds us.

Good one! All that popped up in my mind was “enough already”. No idea why.
Like the cartoon though!

I mean, there’s hope for you.

Meet single arabs on line, “Arab Lounge”? Make fun of god and incite the Bee Keeper suit crowd at the same time? A real twofer I I would say!

With regard to an exchange between expat and me on another thread, I’d like to restate my comment earlier on this thread:
Mr. Scheer, I for one feel a waning interest in some topics on TD, like gays, sex, guns and the like and wish you’d dispense with them, and,
troublesum, my BS comment about your comment was totally out of line, unconstructive and rude and, for that, I apologize to you. You deserve far better.

Like Mark Twain, who said reports of his death are too early, Nietzsche was also a bit early in reporting the death of “God”! I sure wish Adam would finally pull that trigger, and kill the whole bloody myth.

Michaelangelo painted naked men because he liked to look at naked men. Honcho magazine wasn’t delivered to his neighborhood so it was the best he could get. In this picture I think he may be compensating for something.

Michaelangelo painted man as being naked I think to show our nothingness before God. I think Mr Fish means that today we prefer our nothingness; we wallow in it; we make a religion of it. We can’t abide the thought that there might be something greater than ourselves in the universe. The very thought of it must be gotten rid of.
