Thanks. I always rely on convicted felons for my theology.

An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and places and to ultimate causes, we would have to know a great deal more about the universe than we do now to be sure that no such God exists. To be certain of the existence of God and to be certain of the nonexistence of God seem to me to be the confident extremes in a subject so riddled with doubt and uncertainty as to inspire very little confidence indeed

And there are several billion stars that have planets, many Earth like planets, just by definition of probability. Where does that fit into the big picture? No-one can really say.. not here, not now...
And to think that I am the lucky one, that was the product of my mother and father, out of millions of other possibilities.. Its incomprehensible.. I believe that when the time is right, mankind will acquire the knowledge of these unknowns...
In the mean time, be nice to each other, its a short ride, and we are all privileged to be a part of it...

Time to change that location and avatar!
That's a good dream Kev! Rush at the old grange hall, how cool would that be! I love it that you can say swing down here in the "south" for once in our lives!

I'm an avid RUSH fan, it kinda reminds me of the song "Caravan"
I can't stop thinking big
In a world where I feel so small
