This little lot of comments serves no better purpose than to reveal the culture of this forum.  I have just abandonded a forum on paganism because I found there a culture that had succumbed to paranoia and whose members were clearly psychologically unstable.  Perhaps the subject of unexplained msyteries attracts the same kind of people, because I find here a culture which is pretty well identical to the pagan forum.  I feel therefore that in your best interests I should leave this forum.
you wont be missed.

So you've decided to call it a day because no one here is stupid enough to buy your "I have better insight than any of you" shpiel? How predictable.

Actually, bad news for some, but I have reconsidered and think, or perhaps it would be more correct to say "hope against hope", that there may be someone on this forum that is saveable.  And for even one, it may be worth my while.

Strange, you sound more like some sort of fundamentalist Christian than a scientist.

Sigh.  After less than a week away I have found myself so lonely for the charm, friendliness and goodwill that is SO much a characteristic of this forum, that I just had to come back!

Lol, that was funny.

Seriously though, you're talking about 'saving' people from science (the devil). This is the way your posts read. You have put forth an opinion, but haven't backed it up with anything substantial. We're being told that we're wrong and your right <full stop> based on nothing more than your opinions.

Yeah, sure sounds similar to a religious fundamentalist.

Well, find a friend (I mean big F) in REAL life, and all of your probs will be solved. Asking for friendliness and goodwill on the forums... thats naïve.

I don't know; I think I've met friends here.  Not such that I would borrow money from them, but still people I can tell things to that I don't say other places, and that is one of the things friends are for.

There are no friends on the net. Friends are only in real life. On the line we all can give fancy speeches, this that - bad, this that - good. In the end of the day it just remain words, hot air, nothing more...

Oh I can see an argument coming.  To bad since it's early morning here and I gotta go soon.  

What is a friend?  Some of the people who say they love me ("love" is a word much more freely used in Vietnam than in the states) do not and if the reward were great enough would betray.  I still think of them as friends because I know no one is perfect and we have to take people as they are; the good and the bad together, and avoid trying to remake them.

As far as I'm concerned one cannot have too many friends, and one takes them where one finds them.  I'm a bit of an invalid now so I'm dependant on people coming to visit me.  I get lots of visitors, but they only stay a few moments and then my room is empty again.  Not that I feel bad about it.  All I gotta do is get on the phone and I could fill the room with people, but I still like thinking that some of the people around the world that I butt heads with are also friends.

I think the important thing here is that a Friend will listen without Judging, unless a Criminal Activity is involved, then it is a False Friend. A friend is someone you may never meet, and will give you support and encouragement, a false friend will be in your face to get something. IMO

And how many friends are of those visitors?

When I say "in your face", I mean a physical presence.

If you dont belive in globalization and new technology.
But in a sense its true what you saying BUT...It could be a wonderful beging of real friendship.
Also I met some realy good friends here. Only difference with them and real friends is that I dont drink coffe with them from time to time, congrats b-day and come on BBQs.
With internet you can easily link with people who think on same level as you.

edit: couldnt resist.
