  4. LOl

    you have great wit :D
     
  5. There is a huge difference in the belief that a higher power than man (a.k.a. god) provides order in the universe and a belief in a god that will provide salvation.

    I think you are referring to the latter here.

    Moreover, you don't have to know the "meaning of life" to enjoy it. I can vouch for that.:D
     
  6. I'm not talking about the meaning OF life. I refer to finding meaning IN life. There is a difference. Someone who finds life meaningful need not have all the answers.
     
  7. I don't think you know what you are talking about. You just made my ignore list.
     
  8. I get a lot of that.
     
  9. higher power? more wattage??

    put ME on ignore too :D
