In Response to Your Comments   6 comments

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it. George Bernard Shaw 


I would like to thank all who have read and commented on my previous blob. It does appear by all of yer comments that I have touched on a topic of thought provoking interest and of varied views. I do appreciate your consideration and thoughts as it was one which took a considerable amount of thought and time to write. Call it a labor of love if ya will. . LoL

I hope that by replying to your comments in this manner that through touching on each, I have also touched on the most of the issues within all of your comments.


Martha … You actually surprised me. I would for some reason never have expected you to agree quite so non-conditionally. I did equally as well, admire your explanation, “as a parent”. Well put Hon. Of course there are no guarantees but I would have to agree that your recipe stands to give about as good of odds as I could imagine one could hope for.


Kimmi … Yes, we have had a few interesting conversations over coffee and cocoa. LoL . And I’m sure we shall have a few more. You have some interesting thoughts which I look forward to hearing as well. Control does so seem to be the basis of near everything we do, from controlling our own tempers, to controlling the technologies we’ve surrounded ourselves with. One must be careful however, as with control one must also exercise compassion and compromise with equal force.


Up and away … I admire you for your views. And at the same time I am somewhat jealous that I can not see the world in the same manner. I myself am not so sure about the Adam and Eve thing but I do believe that within our universe there are beings (plural. LoL) much more advanced than us. For all I know God could be an Individual of, or indeed an entire civilization. I do believe that we will all find out in due time. As a child I was exposed to the teachings of the united church and must admit that in reflection, I would have to say that religion can certainly be a useful tool in forming a basic understanding of the ways of society and how to live comfortably within it.


Always Happy … It is with good reason you are seeing things the way you do at the moment. I can not go into detail here as it is not my place, but I do understand with a certain amount of clarity the confusion of your thoughts. I suppose I could concede so much as to say that there is indeed the potential for good within all of us at birth but I will still maintain that this is something which must be taught as apposed to something that we come by naturally. As you can see, I have bin a bit on the busy side here for the last while, but not to worry Hon. I will be down to enjoy that roaring fire soon enough. LoL


Snoops … You are exactly right Girl. But one must bear in mind that being the most loving parents in the world does not necessarily put one in stead with the best in the world. Also that kids do, as they grow and mature come to start making they’re own choices. There comes a time when we can no longer teach them, and can only do as best we can to guide them.


Once again, … Thank You all.

Take care and have a great day
