So glad I have a living will to dictate what happens in these situations.
Not so glad I made my twin brother the 'man in charge' of the living will.

borg: ...the things your great-grandparents biatched about 100 years ago is the same things your great grand children will be biatching about in 2112.


Not if the priests of the Temple of Syrinx have anything to say about it.

On Grey's Anatomy, there was a patient who had terminal brain cancer and was trying to refuse treatment. Her family stepped in and finally convinced her that treatment was her only hope.

She made a full recovery and went on to see her daughter get married and have grandchildren.

That woman's name was Gladys Knight and the Pips.

And now you know the rest of the story.

Bonzo_1116: I guess all those saints and other assorted martyrs are burning in Hell, then. Good to know.


According to every baptist I've ever met, they most certainly are.

borg: The euthanasia fight is a lot older than you think here's an Aug 31, story about a woman going to court for the right to die. That's August 31, 1912 Hell people were fighting for abortion rights in the 1830. Nothing is new and nothing ever changes the things your great-grandparents biatched about 100 years ago is the same things your great grand children will be biatching about in 2112.


All lies! Things are terrible now for the first time ever, and the battles we fight today are the most important ones that have ever been fought!

natazha: I'm baffled why people who are convinced that they are going to this "heaven" place, are uniformly afraid to die. Is it possible that they aren't truly certain?

It really is true.

We will never, as a species, achieve our great potential until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.

So in this thread i've learned:

- Man has more power than ChristGod because they can use a Man made machine to stop ChristGod from taking what he wants thereby interrupting his Plan or breaking his Will

- Even though Man has more power than ChristGod, man will still pray to ChristGod to heal the sick and dying hooked up to the machine that is currently breaking ChristGod's will or plan

- Man presumes that once Man has interrupted ChristGod's will, that ChristGod will still listen to Man's prayers

Getting into Heaven relies on playing by the rules, and apparently you can only get in if you fight and scratch and cling to every second of life here on earth. Which makes sense, when you don't really think about it.

Bonzo_1116: FTFA:

Dr Powell said that there are some practices that could help Ms Lee's parents come to terms with their daughter's illness. 'These are religious people, and they know we are all mortal,' she said. 'Being clear about that can maybe help decrease their suffering.'


I dunno, it seems to me that many religions are based around the idea that people (or their spirit or soul or whatever the f*ck) are not mortal, and when we shuffle off this earthly coil we go on to heaven, hell, ghosthood or reincarnation or whatever. Pretty much every religion I can think of absolutely relies on the idea of some sort of afterlife.

If these parents want to come to terms with it in a Christian way, can't they realize Jesus is "calling her home" or similar bullsh*t?

Damn. I can't handle all these "Stupid Events in Religion" posts in such quick succession.

Your religion is bad and you should feel bad.
