Hey Dave, be on the lookout for Stephen. He may be armed with a cue stick. I know he supposedly moved back to Detroit but I’ll pop into Leroy’s from time to time to see if he comes back.

Thank God for sport. Ken challenged me to a Crusade/Jihaad in pool the other night. He didn’t win a single game. Does that mean that my pool god is tougher than his pool god?

Didn’t play pool last night. . . . Maybe I’ll go there to watch the game tonight. My son will be ok for a couple hours with my mom.

    I’ve had the existence of God debate so many times it’s not even fun anymore. Suffice it to say that to believe in God in the absence of solid evidence is a leap of faith. Belief that there is no God in the absence of evidence (how can you prove God does NOT exist?) is ALSO a leap of faith. The truly rational thing to do would be to say that you don’t have enough data to compute. I choose to believe because without God then all values are transient (like a soap bubble) and therefore meaningless.

    God vs. Common Sense

    Okay we all know that throughout history religion has been used to sooth (maintain control), rule, or pacify a particular group. Usually it was done by losing a war and being told this is what you should believe in. The best way to control the masses is to set down rules and guidlines that are not acceptable (call them sins)— that if persude will cast you into the dark world of satan (or cause you to get married).

    Okay now think what type of society we would have if there were no rules or guidelines to teach you how to live your life. ( all religions have them) It would be pure chaos and no society would have a financial base — It would just be groups of for lack of a better word PIRATES taking what they could and running off.

    We need religion and the belief in it to keep order. That is the problem that I have with the question. I truly think that God put us all here to do good deeds for others. Be it the family friends co-workers etc…. You will be judged on how people remember what type of person you were. That is how I see it. I have to because I have sinned so much that I hear voices everytime I get close to any type of religious building. I really do!!!! They usually say stuff like:

    many mistakes in last note —- trying to write without my boss seeing me

    Shawn said when he goes to church the holy water starts to boil.

    Rational Objectivists don’t believe in God but they believe in a higher ethics that put individual freedom as an inaliable right. Therefore they still wouldn’t go along with being pirates. They believe all human interaction should be done through mutual consent. They are the consummate capitalists.

    I’m kind of like when in Rome. . . In my hypothetical kindgom I would apply sharia. In the US, which I acknowledge will never be Islamic, I advocate the Libertarian ideal as it is very government hands off. When in Leroy’s ghetto ethics prevail. When in Rome.

    I was a mean vindictive repoman in my last life………….Hold on that is this life sorry……

  10. Mexigogue says:

    Hey, that picture did kind of look like Stephen, didn’t it? I should call five oh on him!

  11. THE "D" says:

    I looked just like him. I wonder if that is why he fled Lansing?

  12. Phelps says:

    Hey, this guy is an asthmatic. I’m going to start drawing down on anyone brown guy with an inhaler and shouting, “ARE YOU A TERRORIST?!?”

    If they say yes, I’ll shoot them.

  13. THE "D" says:

    Hey somebody needs to find their happy place! How brown do they have to be?????

  14. Mexigogue says:

    Um. . . I think shooting people IS his happy place.

  15. apu says:

    I am being brown too. Please do not be shooting me. Thank you come again

    Mike you did not beat Ken too bad did you? He hates to lose as bad as we do. I just wish I could afford to play with some of those nice pool cues that he has. I will have this Meucci until I die.

  17. Mexigogue says:

    This blog is just like being at the bar. I can’t count the number of times Apu and I have shared pitchers and laughed at the big chicks. And no I didn’t beat Ken that bad. . . but I did beat him every game except one that day. He wasn’t playing in top form and I was playing just well enough to win. Then he went home and got sick (true story, sick from bad food or something he said).

  18. THE "D" says:

    Hey I am going to try to make it down there tonight. I am trying to get the day off tomrw. I will call you in the am about lunch too. I need a break from work for a little while.

    Now everybody can have a wallet like mine

  20. Mexigogue says:

    I must get one of those wallets.

    And hooray! I told Lauri this will be my only night I can go to Leroy’s until Sunday night so she said she might show up too!

  21. THE "D" says:

    Good for you! I would squeeze the puppies since it is going to be a longtime before you see them again.

  22. The Sicilian says:

    Nice wallet. Oh and “hi” today.

  23. Mexigogue says:

    Missed you today Sicilian!! See what you miss when you take a day off of blogging? Zoiks, or shall I say. . jinkies!!!!!

  24. The Sicilian says:

    Blehh..it’s so nice to read what’s going on here! Brain melting from studying.

    Wow, I came in on this post kind of late. I guess that’s what I get for skipping town for the day. Anyway, I agree with your first comment, Mexigogue. However, instead of adopting a belief in God in order to remove the transience from my values, I’ve decided to simply remain agnostic. Besides, even if my values are transient (in an epistemological sense) they still have meaning to me for during my life. But, hey, to each his own.
