But how can you find a happiness that will stay with you regardless, whether you have money, friends, good health or not?

Must be boring.

I find happiness in nature, but I don't want to watch nature 24 hours a day.

I like earth pleasures, bring me all kind of happiness's.

OK, sometimes these earth pleasures bring me unhappiness later on.

I learned to live with it.

Yes, that's my understanding as well, and one of the reasons I don't hold that book in a high regard.

The new testament ? Well, being more recent, I think it's less corrupted than the old testament. Some Christian scholars have done a  great work anyway, trying to decipher some quite obscure passages of both books, which being metaphors of spiritual reality, should not be taken too literally imho.

Its lovely to see you do not believe in afterlife? 
 

Recycling is no absolute death, and if you spread your genes? Even this planet will finely be recycled, the dnas from this planet will be spread with cosmic winds, travel on comets far out in the universe and finely infest  a new planet. We are all one remember?

Where did I say I don't believe in the afterlife? Death is only of this animal body, not the soul.

 

The universe dies when the last star runs out of fuel.

No, I am fixing the back door water ingress, never a dull moment here for me, I just nip back to see what's going on here now and again...😊

Why, are you bored...?

Sorry, but this is just nonsense.
What do you know about what people "waste their time" upon? Is trying to grow as an individual a waste of time? Is trying to know what you truly are a waste of time? Is trying to do good and help others a waste of time?
Even if there's nothing after death, the time you spent doing those things will have been the best time you've spent in your life.

It is a fair and honorable thing to do.
However it becomes less respectable, once one find the need to constantly brag about it.

That's about right, that s why what we read in the books should always be compared with real life experience.

But saying that the Bible is completely wrong is not better than saying that the Bible is completely right.

If I'm allowed a metaphor, it's like seeing a tree full of delicious fruits, and wasting time criticising the colour of the bark or the shape of the trunk.

We are not given a brain for nothing.

Thats to sure sir! Just admit you do not know, you think, and you believe, and the unsurten part of you, do not give you peace, because you still trying to convince your self by telling others how sure you are.

SCIENCE V's RELIGION

 

MAC:          Now I could stand here and present some egg-head scientific argument based on fact,  I'm just a regular dude I like to drink beer and i love my family, rock flag and                     eagle right Charlie? 

CHARLIE:   He's got a point.

DENNIS:     No he doesn't.

MAC:          You see Charlie, these liberals are trying to assassinate my character.  Now i can't change their mind, I won't change my mind because I don't have to because I'm an                     American.  I won't change my mind on anything regardless of the facts of the facts that are set out before me. I'm dug in and I'l never change.

DENNIS:     Mac look your wasting our time, your not going to get us to not believe in evolution.

MAC:          And why is that?

DENNIS:     Because the smartest scientists in the entire world all agree that its real.

MAC:          I'm glad you bought that up, because Mr. Reynolds, Science is a liar sometimes!

DEE:          Oh boy.

MAC:          This is Aristotle thought to be the smartest man on the planet he believed that the earth was the center of the universe and everybody believed him because he was                   so smart until another smartest guy came around, Galileo, and he disproved that theory making Aristotle and everybody else on earth look like a BITCH.

                 Of course Galileo then thought comets were an optical illusion and there is no way the moon could cause the ocean's tides. Everybody believed that because he was 

                 so smart, he was also wrong, making him and everyone else on earth look like a BITCH again.  And then, best of all, Sir Isaac Newton gets born and blows everybody's

                 nips off with his big brains of course he also thought he could turn metal into gold and died eating mercury, making him yet another stupid BITCH. Are you seeing a                       pattern?

DENNIS:     NO

MAC:          Mr. Reynolds these were all the smartest scientists on the planet, only problem is they kept being wrong, sometimes.

DENNIS:      Oh this is insane you fool.

MAC:          I'm a fool because I have more faith in the Saints that wrote the Bible?

DENNIS:      Yeah, because you just read the words of a bunch of guys you never met and you just take it on "faith" that everything they wrote is true.

MAC:          hmmm.... and what makes you think that what your scientists are writing is anymore truer then my Saints?

DENNIS:      Because there are volumes of proven data .....  numbers...   figures....  th......th.....there are fossil records 

MAC:          Oh fossil records..... Ahgg.....  I didn't even think about the fossil records I guess I'l concede.......Oh ah.. one more thing before I do Mr. Reynolds, have you seen these 

                  fossil records? 

DENNIS:      Have I see...... Ugh...?  

MAC:           Have you poored through the data yourself the numbers the figures?

DENNIS:      Well.... No...  I mean..... No....

MAC:           Oh interesting. So let me get this straight Mr. Reynolds, you get your information from a book written by men you've never met and you take their words as truth                        based on a willingness to believe, a desire to accept, a leap of.... Oof....... dare I say it....  FAITH?

DENNIS:       Oh... come on look, I mean.... I don't even know how I'm supposed to respond to that like...... Oh come that is... thats a..... false....... e...e...equivalency 

MAC:           Just answer the question Mr. Reynolds.

DENNIS:      S...sure Yeah Ok....

MAC:           I rest my case.
