Well, it is something that people do to cleanse their body. I know of woman who spent two weeks drinking water only, whilst lying down all the time. If it was my guess, I would suppose that she came out of this pretty feeble, but for her body, it must have been a very cleansing experience.
But, it can also be applied to someone's mind. One technique that is socially acceptable is relaxation. First, you have to be completely relaxed and this is done by relaxing your muscles from…Continue
There once was a god fearing righteous father who sat around a dinner table with his family when a strange came knocking. The stranger was clearly in need of food and drink and the father being a kind man let this stranger in.
What a kind thing do, clearly the religious are very good descent people.
A group of evil gay men from the city, who saw the stranger enter the religious mans home, walked up beat upon the door, practically knocking it off its henge. The…Continue

This is an exchange I had with a Christian in another forum, who was attempting to explain the meaning of Faith. It seems faith in God is nothing special - it's the same kind of trust that I would put in Amazon delivering on time. Or something like that... Christian view is black italics. My responses in blue italics...
What Is Faith? HOW would you define faith? Some equate it with blind belief.…Continue

Okay.. This will sound like a silly story for kids.. It's the Islamic version of the story of Adam..

Just me and my Dad driving around. Just a bit of warning there's a bit of crude childish humor.

Empowerment is a new, alternative trend concerning mental health issues. It seems to go against the usual or old-fashioned methods and views of the medical community towards healing people who have mental health problems (is it really still named disease ?).
I attended a lecture by Amy Lang on "empowerment". She had been a mental health patient and had been hospitalized. When she came back as an active member in society, she trained and became a nurse; now, she dedicates herself…Continue
I've been watching videos of the happily few instances of police brutality against the OWS protesters. Most of what I see shows law enforcement maintaining their cool, but when they lose it, bad things happen. In all but one of the instances that I've seen, the children of this country are the ones that are taking the brunt of the isolated instances of…Continue
Clouds break asunder introducing us to wonder
hidden by day by the sun’s bright…
Killing the innocents
Streams fill with their blood,
Crying out from the depth of intolerance
But it's okay because
the enemy was among them,
It’s okay because they’re different
and probably deserved anyway.
She washed up on shore
Her clothing ripped from her
Signs she was raped
Probably provoked it, the filthy slut.
She was a woman of respect
But who cares what she had to say
She was a whore anyway.
This has been true for all times; for example, women have always tend to hang with each other and the same goes for men.
But it goes much further than that: neighbours get friendly and eventually become friends; people at jobs or "careers " also get friendly and often become close to one another; people of the same social background tend to hang out with each other. Well, people seem to have a tendency to want to belong.
They, have social chats, they have discussions, they…Continue

I watched, in bits and pieces, the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. He's the one heading to jail because of his involvement with the drugs Michael Jackson was taking. I'm not sure what illness or problem he was treating, but recently it seems to be having an effect on others in the field.
This week I had some dental work done. For several days after the work was done, I…Continue
Today the caretaker at my school asked about my christmas plans. I'm going scuba diving in Mexico. "Do I put up a tree?" (etc.) he asks me. I say no. He must know.... why? I hesitate, I don't want to start a fight. Well partly laziness (I admit I love the tree with all the lights and sparkly things) and also because I am an atheist. Can he say, "Ok got it!"? NO I have to endure an extra 30 minutes of a christian diatribe. Now what really gets me is that I like our caretaker and really…Continue
