A dialogue between Studious, Curious Abner and his pessimistic , occasionally caustic, more-or-less-a-friend,  The Psychedelic Toad.

 

Psycho: Good morning Abba-dabba; whatcha reading?

Abner: Dude, I’m trying to learn something new here if ya don’t mind.

Psycho: Learnin’ how to tie yer shoelaces, are ya?

Abner: Cute. Leave me to my studies, please.

Psycho: Curious, studious, modulus Abner.

Abner: Modolus, shmodolus. That’s new; what’s modulus?

Psycho: Mathematical elasticity.

Abner: Such as…

Psycho: Such as…How long it takes you to think up a lie as related to the perceived gullibility of the person or persons being deceived, compared to similar data in place for the modus operandi governing auto-deception.

Abner: Such as  knowing how many warts you have on that ugly mug of yours and insisting that you must have many more of these toadly beauty marks than you believe you have?

Psycho: My, you are a grin-less grump today; I think I’d better find a toadstool to sit upon and amuse my confused memory muscles.

Abner: Later, Warthog.

Psycho: Back atcha, Studly.

HUMAN TRAITS AND ATTRIBUTES

 Family2010002

Why do we describe God with human traits and attributes?

If God is limited to doing what humans do, only better, how is this helpful?

If we describe God in terms that do not apply to mankind, what would they be?

What are the missing attributes which would complete us?

Do you often wish you possessed the ability to Love at will? Or to stop? At will?

Are there moments in your life when you wish that you possessed total knowledge of past and future as well as current events?

Has there ever been a time in your life when you did not feel powerless when confronted with problems?

Are you troubled when you lose your car keys? Your glasses? The name of a friend or perhaps even a beloved family member?

When you ask for help what new trait or attribute that you feel you lack do you suppose will be present when a solution to a given problem becomes apparent

Gambel's Quail

The journey towards superiority reveals no truth.

The search for proof serves only the seeker.

Those who teach, learn little.

Those who encourage others to learn have taken steps toward peace, knowledge and self-respect.

Those who seek power over others enslave themselves.

In order to experience love one must love one’s self.

In order to love one’s self one must know self-respect.

In order to respect one’s self one must be willing to serve others with no expectation of reward.

“I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.” -Gerry Spence

 

 

Buddha (563 B.C.- 483 B.C)

Do not believe what you have heard.

Do not believe in tradition just because it is handed down from many generations.

Do not believe in anything just because it has been spoken of many times.

Do not believe simply because the words come from some old sage.

Do not believe in conjecture.

Do not believe in authority or teachers or elders.

But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it.
