think about this for a minute, aye? If God can exist a priori and have no explaination why can't the universe likewise exist without explaination and also be without any creator whatsoever? I am that I am can apply to both, if you think of both as being an origin. one is as likely as the other to be the truth. so why is it that people can't agree. with or without God we are here right now and we are discussing the very thing. does discussing God not necessarily make him real? by the very fact that we have the idea we have to have gotten the idea from some perception of our senses. and whether or not we do learn from the senses then we would have our conception from our very beginning or whence we found in our perception that we had the idea of God outlined. could it be that God does not exist for the person until they have percieved that he might exist? i know that for me the fact that i have no evidence that any such being exists strongly undermines my belief in his existence. i have found that those with the strongest faith have had the supernatural happen to them when they most needed to see it. it may be in their mind only but in either case it is there for them to form into the idea that there must be some force out there looking out for our well-being. i think that the first religions built upon this protective force and became more elaborate as they went along until you had the codification of laws that were divinely inspired to rule the way a person lives not only here but in the hereafter. thus, according to my argument, religion flows out of the archaic need for organization in a seemingly disorganized world using as its means rules by which life should be led.
that is all.

Hey sweetheart! Are you having a good day? Well, I sure hope so... You deserve to have a good day or two :) ... Kelsie, you are so amazing and so wonderful and so outstandingly beautiful... You're perfect. I love every little thing about you and every moment that you've spent lying in my arms. I'm sooooo glad that I can just simply be sitting here with you and feel safer and more at home than ever before... We sure have a lot of memories, don't we>? Probably more than I can count.. Or more than I have with anyone/anything else.... I wish I had every second I've spent with you on video so that I could go back and watch them whenever I'm missing you..... But I don't... The closest thing I've got are some pictures.... But you know what they say, "A picture says a thousand words".... Follow me up to the treefort so I can show you just what I mean ;)
