Once, I opened the door to my bathroom and nearly walked into a metaphysical continuum.



Hours later, my toilet was back where it belonged.

I don't follow religion, remember?
Thought I made that clear.

Hebrews 11:1 (and the whole chapter touches on it)
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Don't lecture me on faith, as that is where you're intellect deviates from mine.
I think, however, I have researched the subject further than you care to.
You hope the sun comes up, and it is not seen until it does. Most likely it will.

(Yup sp error. Comes from reading mostly tech stuff. Techies are terrible writers. Thanks!)

When you had surgery, were there complications with the anaesthesia?

Good Lord.... That's It!
You've solved my problem.
Now I can reject my faith!!!!

Thank you Dope! I can now convert to your world view of nothing.

Erm, I'm a techie and I have no such issues with spelling or grammar...another ignorant, broad-brushed generality of yours down the tube. The world isn't nearly as simple as the anteater would wish it.

Good, Q.
Most techies are not the best at literary prowess if you read their writings.
