              even the sweetest kindest women i've known can be jerks occasionally

              i think it's the default setting for humans

              God thinks so too

              Gen 6:5

              thank God for our Savior, eh?

                  Must have been a transgender.

                    Part of that's the difference between men and women, though. We think differently, and we perceive differently. It's good for each of us to go with our instincts for what each idea requires. Are you talking about something in a scientific way or a philosophical way? Are you talking about behavior, or personality? A BIG IDEA or the minutiae of daily life? What's big can be made little and what's little can be made big. I've learned a lot from watching the interactions here. A real education in human nature.

                    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

                      Oh, women can be jerks too. I've encountered a few.

                      But I did try to remember that they were a real person with real joys and real sorrows. Depending on the person though, that exercise usually ended in failure. I can only do so much with myself. I know what I'm capable of and how many times I've had to hold myself back and sometimes I didn't. We're all human.

                        The way this place works now, I'm not sure the report button even works.

                        • I miss how you used to talk about what you had for lunch. It showed the human everyday side of you, it was relatable, and endearing.

                            I am talking big, absolute, objective, like the killing of babies.

                              I also miss all that but there are those who encouraged me to look elsewhere and for that I am grateful. The blog has been a real challenge but I have reached 50 countries. People who are connected and searching for answers. Kenya is one of my latest. Why would anyone in Kenya pay attention to me? Somehow they found me thanks to WordPress. Think about it.

                                You can talk about that of course - but you don't have to exclude talking about anything else. It doesn't make that particular big subject any less important, chrys. If you believe in a hell, you're going to believe people get there for a lot of different reasons, not just that one.
