Reviewing the most recent threads, I see an overwhelming increase of preachy god-bollox, so in an attempt to balance the scales a little, here’s what it means to be Agnostic (to me, anyway!):

> Not being so blinded by my ego to believe that my imaginary friend is bigger and better than your imaginary friend- because I don’t I have one.

> Open-minded as to the possibilities of what happens after death, so I don’t live in fear that anything I do or say will send me to hell.

> No one is watching me masturbate and judging me for doing it.

> I don’t feel the need to label everything ‘evil’, when I simply don’t like or agree with it.

> I never feel compelled to waste my time passing off man-written scripts as the word of a supernatural being instead of seeing them for what they actually are- words….written…by…a…human…!

> I never find myself wondering if I’m actually schizophrenic, believing in big men in the sky, imaginary voices and ‘messiahs’.

> Nor do I live with the destitute feeling of ‘This is all I bloody got!’, because maybe it isn’t! Maybe I’ll pop my clogs and live in paradise with 12 cats (this could be hell too, as I’d have to clean their trays); maybe I’ll come back and become the first humanoid to visit Saturn; maybe I’ll be unplugged; maybe I’ll step out of the shower and find out it was all a dream….who knows?! I don’t and that’s fine!

Please share what it means to you to not give a flying duck whether there’s a god or not.

There is every possibility that cats are really gods or aliens sent to observe us and report back. After years of being enslaved by these animals, I hold that possibility as much as the rest of them. After all, there was a reason the Egyptians worshiped them and then there's that freaky little thing they do- the imitation of a baby crying to attract human sympathy and attention. We, as humans, are neurologically wired to pay them attention.
All hail Fluffy!

A cat will happily destroy your home and kill you while you are sleeping.

A DOG will guard you...... and your possessions forever.

This was really an agnostic's excuse, wasn't it?
On the contrary, it simply gave you the opportunity to waffle on about how wonderful cats are.

We've had debates about cats and dogs before and the outcome was, predictably: that cats do **** all for humanity, but dogs do.
Actually, in spite of 'The Mummy's' representation of cats scaring away evil, ancient Egyptian wrongdoers, several animals were given God status.
Sobek, crocodile-headed god of the Nile; Sekhmet, leonine goddess of war; Anubis, jackal god of the underworld; and Hathor, mother goddess with a cow's horns
.
Among other notable anthropomorphic deities highly-regarded by the ancient Egyptians were baboons, ibises, lynxes, pigs, hippopotami, frogs and even beetles.
So, the ancient Egyptians weren't that fussy when they deified animals, in all honesty.
If it could be mummified, they were certainly game to give it a go.

:rolleyes:

P.S. You're only step away from the reality: Atheism.

I'm reminded of the artist Gough. He set off with his dog walking the Lake District. He was never seen alive again. A few months later his body, well, skeletal remains were found. Next to him was his dog, fit and healthy. What did the dog eat to survive? Hmmmmmmmm! :rolleyes:

Full disclosure* I'm a cat lover :)

Well fucking said. Life is what you see and experience,. not what someone tells you it is and not something you read in a book. Life is a personal experience unique to the individual but love and compassion should be common to all.
Live long and prosper

In death, Mr Dog of course stays loyally by its master's side, and according to paramedics I know, will often not even take a nibble until they too succumb to death.

Mrs Cat, however, will start nibbling master's face after his heart has just stopped beating, and his corpse is still warm, and unlike the loyal Mr Dog, will fu/ck off, at the first available opportunity, to find another face to chew on.

If my pooch ate an arm or even a leg, after I pop my clogs, I would congratulate her for her will to survive, because flesh is just that, simply flesh. :rolleyes:

Perhaps you shouldn't advance to Einstein, until at least after you have discovered, a way to block adverts on your computer screen.

are you saying that I can't comprehend or understand Einstein. Please educate me. Or at least try your best. Now that you've called med an imbecile.

Maybe you should consider your IQ before opening your mouth
