    Many times, I find it hard to tell your comments from the typical conspiracy lunatics out there.
    Come on TD. People quite often use an extreme example from the fringe of the side that they don't agree with. This certainly isn't new territory.

    So you didn't even bother to read and comprehend my post other than to notice that I changed opinion to theory.

    Again, you are confusing verifiable data with opinion, things that are subjective. Gravity is objective. Happiness is subjective. An apple falls downwards no matter what. Eating an apple makes some folks happy, and others not. Do you see the difference, yet?

    You're confusing theory with verifiable data. An apple falls from the tree, but why that happens is "opinion" as you all are defining it.

    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
    When the water is right up to your chin, you think it's best to dig a little deeper?

    So if I'm not happy in the way you think I should be, I'm not really happy even though I think I'm happy?

    (here, use my shovel... it's called logic, maybe you can fill in that hole a bit)

    Not at all. Folks have been very clear on the difference. What seems to be happening is that you do not like the fact that folks have shown that your position is OPINION. There is a difference. I've shown it. Others have shown it. There is a difference between objective facts and subjective perception.
