Nice setting hiker. Kind of Zen-like.

Thanks, Djuna.

It was very nice to see Walden Pond maintained so beautifully. Thoreau choose a very good location for his cabin. I have always said the most famous house in America cost $28.12 to build.

We can be real pests and I can not fault an atheist for wanting to get away from us at times. An evangelical theist is a very strong incentive for a person to become an Atheist. We our selves have given atheists reason to want to get away from God.

You hit the nail on the head, Woodrow, no pun intended. hee-hee. I'm surprised no one else has commented about your comment. Truth hurts, huhn? Evangelicals are akin to JWs, you hate to see them coming and get defensive the moment you encounter them. I've become downright rude to them now. I like your way of seeing things.

Couldn't have said it any better myself - and I'm a theist.

That is a breathtaking view, Hiker45.

And why all the alcohol in the thread? LOL, the last drop of liquor I had was around 10 years ago when I was still going to mass.

Default This discovery is astounding!

Say... Wowzers! Now that I enlarged the picture and studied it, I'm sure I can now see God lurking out on that far point of land, just under that overhanging tree. Looks like He's got a walking stick in His hand, the better to direct lightning bolts with, huh?

Yup: I'm sure of it now. There IS a God out in nature after all!
