    It is amazing to me, as I sit here with tearful eyes, how one can so completely miss someone they have never actually met, nor had even as much as a phone conversation with.  Yet, that is exactly how I feel.  My interactions with him were always friendly.  He was like a big brother who loved to tease and will be missed so very much!  sad

    So much i could say but it would be construed as just nasty meanness.
    and you'd probably be right.

      I Don't know where you get this mr nice guy stuff from? My perception is that he lied constantly, printed misinformation willingly, made himself out to be someone who he wasn't. Was blatantly rude beyond what is normal. He spewed crap like it was second nature and the list goes on.
    The only thing i think he knew was cars.
         I am just glad he isn't going to be in torments the rest of eternity, burned by the fires of hell - cuz that don't exist. He went peaceful - so we are told and he will get what he wanted - nothingness after death.
    He could have done so much better but he held onto the anger.
    Lets hope others find God through loss.

        But you turning this into a debate is a disgrace.

        I believe WHOLE HEARTEDLY THAT YOU belong in the boat with the first responder of this branch for using his disgusting words to push your foolish agenda.

        May you be known for your HATRED towards Christians, and the persecution you spread because of a single ill-mannered human being.

        I AM CRYING MY EYES OUT because Earnest is gone though I did not like his views one ounce, I loved him as a person.

        SHAME ON YOU AND ANYONE WHO CHIMED IN ON YOUR AGENDA.

        Christianity has nothing to do with the first disgusting response of the branch, nor does it have anything in common with your words or accusations.

        YOU SHOULD HAVE POSTED KIND WORDS.

        NOT HATEFUL, SELFISH WORDS... YOU DISGUST ME.

      He was truly very kind-hearted. He never blasted me for my beliefs? Why? Because he once told me, I acted like a true Christian. I did not judge others, nor argue and fight. I accepted all for who they are and not what they believe. Jesus did not go among the masses and continually condemn. He embraced, loved and prayed all while preaching the word of God. He was a very good person and he was a great friend. We had a talk once and it wasn't that he did not believe, he questioned. All of us questioned our beliefs, every now and then. He really was a good spirit and not always mean spirited. Just pray for his family and ask for Peace. smile

      I have to say one thing about Earnest. He knew I was a Spiritualist and he always found a humorous way to disagree with me. I loved him dearly and although I knew he was sick I never imagined he'd pass so suddenly. I will be taking a break from HP forums. I've built so many great friendships through this site that I've come to consider many of you as part of my family. His death has changed me as a person. RIP my friend.

    I am at a loss as to what to say about this. I found out about this only around 6 hours before this post & found out through Hubpages.

    A fellow Melbournite that I had not the chance to meet in person. I sure he would have shared some interesting stories, we certainly spread some Aussie cheer and jokes around the forums (especially espousing how good people from Melbourne are, as well as being knock about Australians).

    I will miss his ribbing of others and jokes, and his want to share on here what he knew.

    Earnest is gone. You will be missed. i cannot thank you enough Earnest for what you shared around here.

    It's true, Earnest held on to his anger, and fought injustice every single day, he never traded his humanity in for hatred, like so many do. Of course you think he posted misinformation and lies, Earnest dedicated a good deal of time exposing the lies and ridiculousness of the 'truth' folks like yourself spend so much time peddling! And I reckon it must kinda sting, that your 'book of life' scam was daily refuted by him, who needed no glittering fairy tales of eternity to spread so much joy, happiness and love everywhere he went. Yes, I'm sure your obvious jealousy is natural, for someone in your exalted position. Yep, Earnest needs no commendation from you, and he never needed your imaginary god either.

    Pcunix, I suppose I may as well. You're wrong. Earnest wasn't that rigid. What if a Christian friend died and his family said no one say anything unless you use Christian terminology? Do only atheists get to miss Earnest? Not rational.

    To all, we can thank Earnest for his friendship by supporting his hubs, which will continue to help support his family.

    I think I'll miss him the most in the middle of the night.  I have terrible insomnia from time to time and on nights I couldn't sleep, I would get on HP and Earnest (being from the Land Down Under and all!) would always be on the forums embroiled in some sort of discussion or debate. It felt like a friend I could talk with in the middle of the night and made me feel not so lonely at 2:00 a.m., even from thousands of miles away. He was my champion on several occasions and there aren't too many white knights like that left these days...

        No need to send you an email Brotheryo.

        Your actions speak loudly enough to show how the teachings you supposedly follow has taught you to be.

        Nothing more needs to be vented or ranted or raved about. As you continue, those who see your posts will see you as apparently your ego chooses you to be. You don't apparently rule yourself, your ego does.

        That's the shame and truth of it.

      I agree, that it is a shock.  I always enjoyed his posts.  And even though he had had health problems for years, it is still very sad.  It just shows that none of us knows how long we have and it could just as easily be one of our relations posting the news of our demise far sooner than we think.

    I have only this to say.  This forum thread was created to acknowledge the loss of a fellow hubber who was loved and respected by many.  Unfortunately, brotheryochanan was not one of those who loved him.  While I respect A Troubled Man's attempts to defend Ernest's honor, I think the discussion should now be taken off of this forum thread - discuss it via email or begin another thread, but do not dishonor the memory of a person who was loved and respected by many.

    Let the man (and this forum thread in his honor) rest without the two of you playing verbal tug of war over his grave.  Sheesh.

    Sigh, I haven't checked these forums in ages. Knew there was a reason I did today. My heart sunk when I saw the title of this thread. I was very fond of Earnest and always very much enjoyed my correspondence with him. Made me happy to know he was out there being himself. I'll be sending my warmest thoughts to his family. sad Sad day.
