    What means I don't a life? The fact that I prefer not to serach for people. How to win friends and influence poeple - tell 'em they don't have a life (I do, btw).

    Can't remember the last time I told someone to search. I'm sure you'll do the honours and dredge up some old thread, but you'll have to search to find it. Ironic, huh...!

    Right that's my trolling done, think I'll get back to my life now.

    He may well have been, I've never met him, however the saying was from Confusion not confucious, so to add to your many other faults we will include the inability to read correctly.

    that makes absolutely no sense ...

    so you believe you created all things? wow ... i must shake your hand.

    you know what I think makes people weak? chemical addictions. alchohol ... nicotine ... drugs ... whatever. when you need a chemical to 'calm your nerves' ... or when you have to be under the influence of some chemical in order to 'loosen up' and 'have a good time' ... THAT is weakness.

    believing there's more to this world, more so this universe and all unexplainable things in it, than the active beings living on it does not make one weak. it simply shows you're aware that there are things/beings/whatever that are MUCH more significant than anything our (and yes YOUR) lives will ever amount to.

    seriously ... you sit there and just buy into statements from scientists like "space never ends" ... you're willing to believe something that unexplainable ... but you can't believe there's a greater force that created all? whether it be god, or some higher engergy, or aliens for that matter?

    that's effed up.

    whoa from car computers to the nature of the universe.......maybe we should move this thread to the philosophy section... .....I'm going to bite my tongue on this one except to say....

    A. Berrating someones religion (while fun) isn't very nice, and it usually accomplishes nothing.

    B. Arguing a faith based assumption is an act of futility.

    now back to car computers

    shakes - "Chemical calm's" are sometimes needed. You should consiter yourself very lucky if you never have needed one. I have no weakness for chemicals, but I need my prozac once and a while.

    yourworstmemory - I agree with you on the God thing, and not beliveing in yourself, but you are saying the person is weak because they think there is something higher. I think we will not know until it is too late, so live how you want to, belive what you want to I beleive in no "God" and that is my choice, but I do not put down those that do.

    Now, back to car computers
