Evidence of Destiny

    *Marriage partners: Some people "recognize" their future partners. It seems they meet by serendipity, luck and chance...
    Is it destiny for them to be together?

    *Friends and relatives: Some feel they have known certain people before and tend to remain friends no matter what, i.e. they can resume their friendships/relationships no matter how much time has gone by; after loosing touch or moving away. One could say these strong connections indicate planning on the "other side."

    How did you meet your husband or wife? Was it somehow magical?

      Alas, nothing ethereal, poor me.

      Met her, told my parents and we were married
      The most uninspiring love story, I bet

        Oh, come on... how did you actually meet her... when you first caught sight of her: That mysterious moment when fate brought you together.

      Perhaps, the incredibly high divorce rate amongst Christians could explain "destiny" lol

    Caught sight in church (Surprise!).  Introduced at the church Thanksgiving dinner a week later.  Married the first of Feb in the JP's office.  37 years ago.

    Guess the destiny will happen when we go back to ashes and dust.

      You turned her into an atheist, (Justice of the Peace instead of Church where you met?)... in matter of months?
      Or the other way around?

        She wasn't much of a church goer, I'm afraid.  The family was, but just like me she had slipped from grace into the evils of the world.

        Maybe that's what we saw in each other; unutterable evil, to remain outside the church walls like that.  But it DID take something over 2 months...

          See? destiny! Two like souls who had planned to enjoy their lives without unproven beliefs. 
          Don't worry, you will not go back to ashes and dust.  smile

            As evidence I provide the contents of a 1,000 year old coffin and the urn on the mantle piece.  Plus the immortal words of every priest at every  burial (should be of extra value, shouldn't it?).  What do you provide?

              Destiny is evidence of spirit. Ashes and dust are evidence of the physical. Which would you prefer to believe in?

                   Don't priests mention some sort of after life? I avoid funerals. I've been to only one: My grandmother's. Open casket. I didn't intend to look, but as I walked by, I peeked at her dead body in curiosity. I saw a body without it's spirit. Where did it go? it was not there!

              But, right after my grandfather died, I heard him on the right (in my mind)  saying,"Keep up the good work…" while I was planting a garden.
                   I have heard (two separate accounts in my own neighborhood) of husbands visiting the wives they had to leave. Both of these women reported seeing their husbands as apparitions for one last time.

                Physical.  There is actual evidence it is real (contents of that urn). 

                Destiny, on the other hand, exists only as a concept in the minds of some people, and even as a concept has no discernible connection to reality.  Kind of rules out being evidence for an imagined spirit or spirit world.

                Of course, if I were to play a game, a Halloween Party perhaps, it would be more fun to pretend to believe in the imaginary.  It always is, for a short time - it's just that games are not very productive in the long run.

                lol Bowling is evidence of unicorns.



                Reality, as opposed to your nonsensical fantasies?

                     

                No, you saw a dead body in which all the physical organs meant to keep the person alive no longer functioned.



                They were obviously lying or delusional.

    SIGH. God is Love. Why fight it? Everything comes from love . Everything goes back to love. Can you touch love? No, but you can feel it.
    Get it?

      Because, that is not true. The God of the Bible is a psychotic despot.



      That is entirely not true, take off your blinders to reality, Kathryn.



      Yes, you are deeply confused. lol
