  1. He's the product of his environment. He was mistreated and abused as a child. He gained fame at a young age, made enough money to lock himself into his own childhood world (hence never land). He probably surrounded himself with people who never told him to seek help for his psychological issues (yes men). I'm not defending his actions, but it is what it is. He was a genius, iconic musician, but a screwed up individual.
  2. I'm glad you're back, and doing better. Here's to a speedy recovery.
  3. stumble I didn't even see this new thread... the other one went a ways, eh?
  4. Well, if you believe there is a god, I think it would stem into other things. God is outside of our logic. We cannot imagine infinite, or timeless. "Time" is something humans interpret in their own way. A god wouldn't think in "time", it would just "be", and have "been".
  5. I plan on someday reading all of the holy texts I can. This way, I can have valid insight on many religions. If you have only read one text, opinions are pretty mute in my eyes. I'd be even more interested in hearing stories of people who have converted, or have gone from atheist to religious (I know, rare).
  6. There are good responses in this thread. I am not looking for direction or life advice. I believe a question like this could be beneficial to everyone. I wanted this to be more of a "look inside yourself and share your beliefs" topic. I feel it is easier to ask on a forum, because in real if people usually get uncomfortable (for some very weird reason), or sometimes are even offended by questions on their religion. Personally, I believe organized religion has caused almost all of the greatest evils throughout history. I also believe some morales that come with religions can be damaging
  7. What makes you believe in Christianity, specifically your church over other churches, or another religion all together?
  8. Because religion makes a lot of people happy, why wouldn't I want to get into it?
  9. I do not think any religion is more valid than another, otherwise I would practice one. I am just asking why people personally believe their practice is more valid than the others. Logically, people should only practice a religion with faith if they have reason to have faith in it.
  10. Serious questions, if someone could provide some insight. What religion do you practice? Why do you practice that certain religion? What inspires you to practice that certain religion over the countless other religions? E.g. If you are Christian, why do you believe in Jesus as the son of God rather than another prophet? I ask this because, while I am not atheist, I was never brought up into a certain religion. I have always been into getting into religion, but have no idea how to even get a clue how to get into any religion. Islam and Christianity seem to b
  11. With parental consent, it is legal for someone under 21 to drink in private locations here. The national drinking age act that was passed in the early 1980's doesn't really deal with consumption. It doesn't matter though, we just have different opinions. I personally believe people under legal age are fine drinking under adult supervision. It's a stupid argument though! I'm sorry I got involved at all. We can all agree on one thing. Drinking and driving is an no-no, no matter what age. It is very sad that this kind of stuff happens to innocent people.
  12. I am trying to see, really. Please explain to me in dumbed down terms. I'm not even arguing, I just fail to see what the problem is with me. In many situations, it isn't even illegal for me to drink in NJ at my age. Therefore, if I am responsible, as well as lawful, what problem do I fail to see?
  13. How have I turned from a good kid to a person dependent on alcohol and drugs? Why are you portraying me as someone who is falling apart? I don't understand at all.
  14. I dont understand. How are you connecting this to killing people and wreckless drinking? ^referring to post about mutilated woman who was hit by drunk driver. You came onto badbinary like he was an jackass for no reason. His post was in good taste. I'm unfit for a keyboard?
  15. Because I am responsible. Actually, I don't even get the point. Beer drinking can be a hobby in itself. You don't need to get drunk to enjoy the taste of beer, or even spirits for that matter. Don't even begin to use me as an example of wrong-doing on my part, or people at the forum. People answer me like it's no big deal because it isn't a big deal. You're the one who came into this topic like drinking/driving isn't something to be bothered about, and felt the need to be sarcastic about someone who now, because of the fault of someone else, has had their life destroyed. That see ms pretty irr
  16. This forum is going in the wrong direction for sure.
  17. My virgin eyes bled after seeing that one.
  18. If it's legit, why would it matter how many posts?
  19. What has happened to this forum?
