    Actually no; beyond that you believe there is nothing...big difference.


    Btw, so you don't love your 'life partner'...assuming you have one?

    Nope, nor does she "love" me. We're planning our wedding for this July. We udnerstand that our relationship is built on mutual compatibility of physical and social needs, philosophy, and ideology.

    Fair enough.

    Though I think 'leads me to believe' would be more accurate to 'show me'.

    Since you only know a tiny fraction of the world's population, you cannot know there is no love, you can only believe it.

    I am not saying you are wrong about love, I am just sayin'...

    Well my experience tells me "love" not only exists, but is real.

    I love my wife. She loves me. I love my daughters, and they love me.

    Life is not always "fair", and sometimes it can be quiet harsh, but that doesn't mean "love does not exist".

    That's just stupid.

    Guys, don't let Tigger get you down. He thrives on threads like this. Loves to stir up sand with his outrageous look on life. I don't feel sorry for his fiancé, because she allows him to treat her this way.

    I find it quite hypocritical for liberals to complain about conservatives placing a value on money, when money is the primary tool that liberals use to affect their agenda upon society.

    I don't understand your opposition to that.

    That is not a woman's place in the world. Never has been and never will be.
