  1. No, the other half is being forced to give your yummy raw deer meat to the bear so it doesn't eat you. Though this one can also be outrunning the guy next to you.
  2. Oh, you got stuck with one of those. They are even if you're from a rural area. The challenge is half the fun.

  4. A bedtime prayer by Kitty Delger Now I lay me down to rest. I pray that all the world be blest. Lady Moon and Sister Star Watch over me from afar. Mother Earth is always there And keeps me safe within her care. The Lord of Dreams will dance and sing And happy dreams will to me bring. And when I wake to greet the day Brother Sun will light my way.
  5. I'm the same way. I did a short hermitage-thingy when I was younger but now being a hubby and daddy make that a bit more difficult. If I ever find myself alone again its back to the woods.

  13. Because it is the simplest most logical interpretation of my life's experiences and has withstood my repeated attempts to debunk. Though any beliefs I have debunked are tossed aside.
  14. I answered yes to both. But this is with the stipulation that harm to those same rights of others is punishable. For example, I think a person should have a right to use pcp. But if they violate the rights of another due to that pcp and become violent and beat the crap out of someone, they are punished. Likewise, if a mother chooses to drink during pregnancy, fine, her choice. But if because of that choice her child is born with FAS, she is held responsible. This way a person is free to do whatever as long as they do not violate your same freedom in that. Not perfect, and could certainly be fine tuned, but I think its good enough to start with.
  15. Mine would focus on the many people who are willingly ignorant and would be punishable by lifelong quarantine or death.
  16. I see no problem with traditions being organized in some manner according to their teachings, which in some cases is the rule even now. But trying to get eclectics, who are currently the majority, to agree on anything will be as successful as an attempt to herd cats. There are perks in either system, really, but I think many Wiccans feel "cool" for not having a form of governing body and that this is the primary reason for the opposition. edit:Thought I'd note the above isn't a snipe at Wicca or Wiccans as I am rather fond of both(indeed, I was suckered in to marrying a Wiccan ) I am just describing much of the opposition I have encountered thus far as they make it seem.
  17. For horror, I'd say my favorite is Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons. Quite a good read and it makes you ponder certain aspects of humanity.
  18. That is a brief history of time I do not want to witness.

  19. in his mind he made them formed them from himself thus the gods came and how they fail and how they fell
  20. I just started re-reads of The Universe in a Single Atom by H.H. the Dalai Lama and the Magician's Companion by Bill Whitcomb. Both make for great reads.
  21. As this area of the forum is on sacred texts, I thought I would link to the invaluable resource of the Sacred-Text Archive. You can find most any sacred text you could hope for in it and if you've never before visited I beg you to spend at least a few moments browsing it. I am not trying to spam the site or any of that, its just a reallllly useful site. Sacred Text Archive
