Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

It's possible (probable) you mentioned George Price and that it got lost amid TL;DR but it seems relevant to link now anyway.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

I don't find your obsession to engage in online graphimania at all annoying. (That'd be somewhat hypocritical of me now, wouldn't it?)

Enjoy the dialog.

Heh, I can provide a long list of folks more than happy to brand Frances a heretic, but I like the cut of his jib. And coming from me, that means a lot.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

Please note, I'm not seeking to win a debate with you. I only seek to explain my experience as best I can (given the tenuous and ethereal nature of the topic.)

I don't know how well I have succeeded in the attempt.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Let's translate this to a more modern terminology. In the beginning was the Meme, and the Meme was with God, and the Meme was God. And thus was self-reference born allowing for the Meme "I Am" to be. (or not to...

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

Entirely possible (and actual biblical precedent) that it may be the only people in need of salvation were those that believed they were in danger of damnation, and that others, such as yourself, already had the law to love others as yourself already written on their hearts. Some of the most Christi...

Re: I Got Drunk with a Time-Travelling Pirate on Valentine's

First off, great story.

Second, a moderator should immediately move this to the Private forum to avoid legal complications from a Time Lawyer (if you think Time Pirates are a pain on the ass, well...)

At least until there is permission from the original author.

Gorilla warfare isn't monkey business, you know.

If only "horseplay" were exchanged for another simian synonym, this would be perfect.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

I suppose my main heresy is a willingness to question the journalistic infallibility of the bible while understanding why Jesus' sacrifice was a perfect solution to what had previously been an insoluble problem. (Namely that a perfectly just God must condemn all sinners to eternal death. The scriptu...

Something about sending rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike comes to mind.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

I wouldn't say I ever feared God so much as I feared being God. I haven't ever, nor do I now believe in salvation at the barrel of a gun*. But as you have correctly noted, we are all heretics (in someone's eyes) and I'm certainly well certified as being crazy. *it's my personal belief that Jesus wen...

His sword thumped lightly against his leg as he moved further into the dragon's lair. " This overgrown lizard won't know what hit it " he thought confidently as the air grew thick and warm. He'd fantasized about this moment; it was his destiny, and he knew it would make him famous. So wha...
