"Ruth, I like the idea of creating stories based in science that we can tell our children. My dad told me the story of creation when I was about 6 years old, and I loved it! It was about a big bang, and swirling masses of gas, and fish swimming up…"

"Alice, you said, "There is no ultimate meaning to why we are here - there is only the meaning we weave out of our own lives.  Our lives are ultimately meaningless - but because we like to feel that we matter and are significant in some way…"

"Whew, I just realized how long my previous response had been, so its no wonder it took you a while to respond! Anyway, I'd love to hear more about your upbringing and personal history, it sounds fascinating if not entirely pleasant. My own…"

"I am not one of those that thinks that there is nothing at all redeeming about any religion. Religions can be a force for good, if only a weak force. Religions bind people together and get them to believe in their self-worth and in the value of…"

"The word desires for me has connotations of sex – and this historically has been negative for me – I was told as a child celibacy was pure and good and clean. How about passions? You must have really had a rough go of it with those…"

Jedi Wanderer replied to Brian Wilson's discussion It's all emotion in the group Reforming Counter-Apologetics
"You may of course relinquish meaning which isn’t meaningful. We experience meaning when something motivates us. If you find yourself completely unmotivated by something, then it likely has no meaning for you, or even negative meaning. It…"
