Well, drainboy and stenchpuppy are my brothers, but neither of them has updated in ages, so I'm not sure they count.

Which would leave kpollock (12 years), wordofblake (11 years or so), broin (8 years), octopoid_horror (7 years), johnbobshaun (7 years) and spaj (7 years).

Well, it's an unusual day when I don't chat to mab and rainstorm. I catch up with dapperscavenger one day in two, and tisme on a fairly constant basis (even if she's only on the other side of the room).

3 LJ users you've talked to on the phone:
I don't use the phone much, but
guyinahat and I call to arrange things.
tisme at least twice a day, if not 6 times.
dapperscavenger to make sure she's turning up to things.

2 LJ users you adore:,
tisme
I don't think there's anyone else I adore, although I like an awful lot of them an awful lot.

1 LJ user you wished you talked to more:
garthmyl because I always enjoy it whenever I do, but usually find myself stuck for ways to begin conversations.

519 arguments for God

The List of Arguments


10. ARGUMENT FROM CREATION

(1) If evolution is false, then creationism is true, and therefore God
exists.
(2) Evolution can't be true, since I lack the mental capacity to
understand it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be
uncomfortable
(3) Therefore, God exists.


11. ARGUMENT FROM FEAR

(1) If there is no God then we're all going to die.
(2) Therefore, God exists.

13. ARGUMENT FROM INTELLIGENCE
(1) Look, there's really no point in me trying to explain the whole
thing to you stupid atheists -- it's too complicated for you to
understand. God exists whether you like it or not.
(2) Therefore, God exists.

17. PARENTAL ARGUMENT

(1) My mommy and daddy told me that God exists.
(2) Therefore, God exists.


18. ARGUMENT FROM NUMBERS

(1) Millions and millions of people believe in God.
(2) They can't all be wrong, can they?
(3) Therefore, God exists.

The cynical part of me wants to put up a poll regarding the news piece just below, so that people can then tick boxes marked "I'm sorry to hear that.", "If you need to talk you know where to find me.", "*hug*" and suchlike.

Thankfully, the more reasonable part of me knows that these words, while common and expected, are merely the conveyors of actual emotion.

And really, I do appreciate it.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn

Back from dinner (was lovely - Khi/Bekka hadn't heard the news, so me and Erin didn't say anything and played nice all evening). Rather nice, and I must eat at Frankensteins again, if only for the desserts. The decor is fabulous, and the tv showing the original movie on loop was a nice touch.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words. Love you all.

Night!
