    Hey, that reminds me, I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. No kidding. It's a great remake of a boring classic.

    No.

    I think, therefore I think. This can be proven.


    I am therefore I am. This also can be proven.

    God still cannot.

    You don't exist because you think you are. In order for a proof, someone ELSE has to think you are. Now, I have never seen you, but I still have faith that you exist, Jp.

    I have never seen God, but I have the same level of proof, from a human standpoint, that HE exists.

    I have read your words here, and I have read His words, in the Bible. Both of you say you exist, and I believe that is true.

    Now, your existence is proven by other humans. So, God's existence could only be proven by other gods, but he is the only "God."

    Therefore, he must authenticate himself, via his works and his Word. As humans, we are incapable of providing a proof that satisfies other humans.

    And that's how he wants it.

    It's really quite simple. The requirement that he sets down is "faith."

    This is a direct assault on my Zen Descartesist beliefs and I am offended. At least, I think I am.

    I like this TB. It will be shot down by those who will say that they can visit you and you can physically see them whereas God cannot, which you and I and billions of others know is false because God did allow Himself to be seen in physical form in Jesus Christ.

    Even so, I like this explanation. Thanks

    It really is a book and it really is well done. This guy Seth Graham-Smith is a writer for MTV and he took the original Jane Austin book Pride and Prejudice and added a plague that produced zombies to the story. It flows so well with the zombies added that you really can't tell what is only original.

    The author also wrote another great parody called Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Killer. This one is being made into a movie.

    He's in a bit of a funk dealing with reality and the adjustment of his meds. I spent a week with him last month and it was really a great week.

    His problem now is that he feels guilt, which he has never felt before, and he is able to suppress his anger towards those who mess with him. Since many of his "friends" are those he met before going to jail and those he met in jail, he is now seeing them for the users that they are.

    Since he is no longer thinking and feeling as they do, he is the one they are using. When he realizes that another person he thought was a friend has used him in some way, instead of beating them to a pulp, setting their vehicle on fire or driving a truck into their home as he used to be prone to doing, he is dismissing them and retreating into a funk that he is not used to handling.

    His mom keeps me informed of his well being when he feels too guilty to call me, so things seem to be progressing. Thank you very much for inquiring.
