    I'm sure there are many depressed people out there who thought they were happy just prior to the fall as well. Thought does have power, but thinking you are happy, and being happy are not the same entity.

    And again we have the matter of happiness being subjective.. what a Tibetan monk considers happiness is not the same as what a wall street exec. considers happiness, which is not the same as what preacher considers happiness, which is not the same as what a jungle dwelling Amazon native considers happiness.

    So what is happiness, and why isnt this thread in the religion and philosophy forum

    Why is it that you love to selectively pick a single lunatic from the fringe and then make broad generalizations for all Christians which cannot be supported by any facts?

    Many times, I find it hard to tell your comments from the typical conspiracy lunatics out there.

    Emotions are far more complex. What makes a person feel various emotions is subjective. Like I said, you can't compare physical pain and emotional pain because they are two very very different things.
    I can and I did... so you are wrong again

    As I said earlier, I try to stay away from group identities, I'm my own person. You can bash conservatives all you want, I assure you I won't take it personally.
    I never bashed conservatives. You're the one making outrageous generalizations about a group of people.

    Before this conversation gets too philosophical, perhaps in the future, Taylor, you could just be more articulate so that we can discern the difference in your posts from what you are stating as fact and what you are stating as opinion.

    Sorry, I'm debating half a dozen people at once and am sick of repeating myself. If you're really interested you can go back through the thread and read it.

    So now you are asserting that all amputees feel this way?

    I can and I did... so you are wrong again
    So essentially your retort is "nuh huh!"

    Yeah, thanks but I think I'd rather have a discussion with someone who actually has stuff of substance to back up their assertions.

    I've read through the thread. The fact that you have to repeat yourself should tell you that you haven't adequately explained your position.
