Well then, with all due respect, perhaps gambling with dice may make more sense to you, if you are content to gamble with your soul. To "procrastinate the day" of one's repentance is of course, another way of gambling. I think that it is obvious that many HubPages writers utilize this venue as a humble way to spur themselves on, even more than others, to own up to their own unique and individual needs of repentance. Ironically or not, the others then become the beneficiaries of the benefactors who contribute to the various educating forums of discovery under similar sub-headings made available to us. Many of forums overlap and generate numerous segues and virtual tangential discussions. Religion and Philosophy go hand-in hand; that is one reason HP has grouped them together in the main heading. Of course, you are well within your rights not to care [about] religion, just as I don't care how for instance, how "well-done" some might say ones' meat ought to be eaten in order to gain the most nutritional value from it. O.K., maybe a bit.
That is a doozy! I love spiders! Spiders are way more interesting than many realise. Did you know that they dance and have many human like traits?
That should have been my dream! The best way I found to discover what my dreams mean is to just ask the question as you have. "I wonder what that means?" is the right response according to Jungian therapy at least.
I leave the dream alone and the meaning sort of soaks in over the next day or two after I ask the question of myself.
That is the reason why I would not want to live in Australia, as I have heard that there are poisonous spiders which climb up the loo and bite people. I think they are so ugly, with their eight legs and they move too quickly for my liking. I once danced like a spider, when a huge bugger dropped on my chest and sat there looking at me, when I was at work.
We do have some venomous spiders, but some with the most dangerous venom are harmless as well. They simply don't have enough venom to hurt a human, but you can get infections from the bite. Many of our big spiders such as the huntsman and bird eating spider don't seem to bother biting. The nasty ones are the relatively small redback from the Australian song "Redback on the toilet seat") which flags it as a common problem with outdoor bush toilets and tool sheds etc.
I have been bitten by one, and it's near as bad as snakebite! Bitten on the back of the left hand when I stuck my hand inside the head stem of a motorcycle frame to lift it. My hand went black and the veins in my arm as well. Australia has a lot of nasty insects and a few animals that are not to be argued with as well.
When you live here, you need to know a few things to reach old age!
I agree that religion is false, because it is the creation of man, and I have spent many hours arguing with the religious, who I have assumed are bigots, which some undoubtedly are. However, I have come to believe that I may have been basing my views on the most extreme examples of religious fundamentalism, such as the 9/11 terrorists or the Westboro Baptists. This might be akin to comparing the Nazi party with the Labour party, simply because both are political parties.
Whilst religion may be nonsense, perhaps there is nothing wrong in it, if it gives people hope, and as long as they keep their religion to themselves. Certainly, I was much happier when I had the false hope that religion offers.
As a child, I held that false hope. I also believed in the tooth fairy and Santa Claus.
But for adults to believe in it, is a nightmare!
For many years, I felt that people needed something to believe in, something to give them hope and something to aim for.
There is nothing wrong with that, and if religion does that for you, then you have nothing to fear when it comes down to natural human emotions like love and loss. God will guide you, be with you, no matter what.
But this latest Hubpages religious stuff is in your face, you will believe or rot in Hell stuff.
Sorry I like the word stuff when it comes to religion. You can stuff it!
I'm just wondering... I've only been on HubPages a few short weeks, but I've noticed from the Forums and the Religious section that it seems like the majority of people on here seem to be anti-Christian. I just recently...
I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all...
I don't mind folk debating Theology and the Meaning of Life but there are some people on Hubpages who keep banging on from their electronic pulpit about Jesus and the Bible. I think it's time that Hubpages considered...
There be many religious people here that have threatened us with the world ending. They tell us that we need to repent and some use these as scare tactics. They seem to think that the Bible tells us the...
