On this day of worship.........

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Head and Shoulders. When you want to rise above the rest.
Na, I'll think you'll find that Head and Shoulders was Stephen Hawking's favourite.

Mary used Edmonds baking powder in the scones she baked for the last supper.

joke Poker,

The original message is one thing and how it is practiced is another.

Organized religion opiate of the masses. I always liked that line.

I love that reasoning that the message is great, but men pervert it.

Uuh, but how would an omniscient God know that would happen?

Save it for the uneducated.

I know you're not looking for a theological discussion, but that's the whole point.

I'm happy to wear that.

Vlad, you've got to get over your 3 obsessions.

God, the rich and that teacher you despise.

I know you in real life and it's the same stuff too, at least you're consistent.

Something I learned long ago (related to divorce) - the opposite of love is NOT hate, it's indifference. My experience is that people who are most vocal about God are not expressing unbelief, but how much they think God has failed them. Most often, it's the Christian church or it's individual members that have failed them - and that I can relate to.

If someone doesn't believe in a god's existence, isn't it absurd to consider they could be angry with him?

How can you be angry at something you don't believe in? It's like someone being angry at fairies.
