Re: Crop Circles

Thank you guys. I appreciate all your comments, makes me feel better. I don't want to argue about crop circles any more. Just one note though, they have been found in trees, ice and wild prairie. I concur, it isn't right for people to go onto private property and damage valuable crops. I heard about...

Re: Isn't the Platinum Rule better than the Golden Rule?

I'm not sure I'm enjoying myself here. I keep getting bashed for being curious about crop circles.

Re: Crop Circles

Thanks Marie, for your reply. I totaly agree. I seem to have won myself some enemies here. I can't seem to pull myself out of this poor image! Believe it or not, I do love the world and the universe for the interesting and fantastic thing that it is. Magic is just a word for things we don't yet unde...

Re: Crop Circles

OK, Complexity co-inciding with the development of computers: Yes. Maybe computers do have something to do with it, like for planning them, laying them out, or something that has yet to be understood. Remote Human creation, no scientific evidence. Yeah, that's what makes it intruiging to me. I wanna...

Re: Crop Circles

Well, I just discovered that the conversation was moved to a new thread. I thought the topic had gone cold! I'm impressed that you went to some effort to look it up, and enjoyed reading your findings. I shall have to be more skeptical in the future. Now to attempt to answer some questions and though...

Re: Can you be a spiritual humanist?!

I didn't realize you were looking for references. I thought a simple list of what I have learned was adquate. I get my information from the book: "Secrets in the fields" by Freddy Silva, the documentary "Star Dreams" (don't watch it you'll hate it, I find it increacingly irksome too) and another boo...

Re: Is time an illusion?

Back on the deja vu thing...all I was saying was that can this Quantum Entanglement thing actually provide any explanation to the deja vu phenomenon. And of course like you pointed out ESP. I am sure you also would've experienced incidents when you KNOW that one of your loved ones is in danger or s...

Re: Is time an illusion?

Sorry my Hawking comment was a bit ridicule-ous. I admitt I was feeling overwhelmed. I appologize. It was impolite. I'm not normally one to jump on people. I guess it takes a little while to get to know each other. I really am interested in all those topics. And Stephen Hawking is one of my personal...

Re: Are you a humanist or what?

OK, I will drop the "secular". Happily. Yes, labels are limiting. That's why my husband insists on not being called anything.

Thanks for the definition.

Deja Vu? I supose so. Perhaps esp as well. I like the everything is connected thought.
