  1. Is gendao worth having on this forum?

    Anyone who may be more advanced may not care what you think. You make so many blanket assertions. There are many people here that do not believe in immortals and most, if not all of the stuff you are railing against. The position you are taking, is one, most of us have heard over a hundred times before. It is invariably a rant by someone who is relatively new to TDB. When you stop knowing so much, you will know so much more.
  2. Is gendao worth having on this forum?

    No, I freely admit that I do not know the answer to any of those assertions you made above. Again, my question is how do you know?

    How do you know?
  4. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    “There is darkness inside all of us, though mine is more dangerous than most. Still, we all have it—that part of our soul that is irreparably damaged by the very trials and tribulations of life. We are what we are because of it, or perhaps in spite of it. Some use it as a shield to hide behind, others as an excuse to do unconscionable things. But, truly, the darkness is simply a piece of the whole, neither good nor evil unless you make it so. It took a witch, a war, and a voodoo queen to teach me that.” ― Jenna Maclaine

    More nuanced than that, but I think you are mostly right. Ever feel like one of the few adults in the room?
  9. What are you listening to?

    All of pop and rock and roll owe a great deal to Charlie Christain. --John Lennon had a Charlie Christian pickup fitted on his Les Paul in tribute to him.

    Your message is a very important one that all should be aware of. The problem is that when it is constantly brought up, especially in other peoples threads, you devalue the message and instead of it getting its' due, people tune it out or even discredit it. Then when you jump to other people's bait and turn it into a he said, he said, you devalue your very important message even further. This puts you into the position of being an antagonist to your own message. I do not want to see that for you or your message. Re-analyze yourself and your strategies if you truly are an advocate of your beliefs and not a troll.

    In surgery for a heart attack, a middle-aged woman has a vision of God by her bedside. “Will I die?” she asks. God says, “No. You have 30 more years to live.” With 30 years to look forward to, she decides to make the best of it. So since she’s in the hospital, she gets breast implants, liposuction, a tummy tuck, hair transplants, and collagen injections in her lips. She looks great! The day she’s discharged, she exits the hospital with a swagger, crosses the street, and is immediately hit by an ambulance and killed. Up in heaven, she sees God. “You said I had 30 more years to live,” she complains. “That’s true,” says God. “So what happened?” she asks. God shrugs, “I didn’t recognize you
