Being the third child that wasn't expected or wanted, I would not be alive today if it wasnít for him and a judgmental creator. Some women seem to think they are the only one who should have an opinion about choice. Maybe the ones who never had a name might have had one if they had a chance to express it. After all they were the one sacrificed for convenience, shame or maybe for their own good. Can death really be good? I hear people say they wish they were dead or had never lived but do they really mean it? Is it just an emotion they are feeling at the moment.?

Then there is the question of whether or not there is a creator and the retribution one would face for these decisions. I have my own doubts of the existence of the creator but can one really be sure? It is a question for each individual to decide and even the scripture says that we have free choice no matter the consequences you may face for it. You not only face punishment in the after life but also here and now because of other peopleís belief. Isnít that what the Islamists are doing? Trying to destroy us because they believe they are doing the creators work? Many people think we should destroy them for their beliefs and they doing the creators work. I think we should be leaving the decisions to him if you believe and not the evolved worms that believe we are in charge. Isnít that what we are, evolved worms with specialized parts to inhance our ability to survive? A large brain to out think our enemies. An enhanced digestive system to process food better and muscles and bone to catch or escape as may be needed. I donít have the answers, just an opinion and these are just thoughts that have occurred to me over time.


Every day is a blessing to me and I am thankful that Iím alive even though I didnít have an easy childhood and growing up wasnít a picnic. Iím satisfied with how things have ended up. Iíve married, raised a family that wasnít subjected to the abuse that I suffered and I still have the same wife I started out with so I made a good decision about that. We worked hard for the things we have and now weíre looking forward to retirement in the coming years and the children and grandchildren have already been a joy in our life, so what I say is ďThank You JesusĒ!

Hi Profiler,

I'm a little confused by you saying you're not sure if you believe in a Creator, but then you're thanking Jesus.

Maybe you could elaborate??

I'm thanking Jesus as a man who was born into this corporal world just like the rest of us. Does that compute?

I suspect Ilene reads a different message underlying his words. He does not believe . . . but he is grateful that his mother did because she did not abort him. Either way . . . it seems to be a troll with a twist.
