    Was C.S.Lewis's The Problem of Pain any part of your thesis? He wrote the best discussion and analysis of pain and why it exists that I have ever read.

    he certainly was!!! Clive is my homeboy lol. the problem of pain was the basis for the paper. however, i wanted to obstain from a religious answer, since Lewis did a fine job of that IMO, and ask/answer the question from an ontological and observational prospective rather than religious and descriptive. I also did a lot of reading on William Hasker and John Hick in the process if you're familiar w/ either of them.

    Michael A. Hoffman: No. By the time of Christ, Judaism was based on the "Oral Law." The New Testament speaks of this as the "traditions of the elders." Jesus Christ denounced and condemned the "traditions of the elders" in the Gospel of John Chapter 5 and in the Gospel of Mark Chapter 7.

    ~ After the Jewish leadership crucified Jesus Christ, and their subsequent killings and persecution of Christians throughout the Roman world, the rabbis committed to writing the "traditions of the elders" which formed the first part of the Talmud called the Mishnah... (continued, see below)

    I'd like to hear more about the content of your thesis. it sounds very interesting to me. But I warn you, you may lose me quickly with $50 words because I have been out of the university milieu for quite some time now. So try to keep it simple, but I'll do my part and visit Merriam Webster online as much as need be. lol

    Welcome back Ace. Yeh, this thread seemed to take on a life of its own... I have two pics that may suggest pleasure and pain... to some. The third may include both pleasure and pain.

    What a headache trying to properly dispense with all that money. I already have enough responsibility, thank you, but I guess I could purchase a fresh new uniform like the one pictured here* (nothing nicer than a brand new uniform) but I don't really like belonging to any clubs or organizations, so forgetaboutit, but I could purchase that beautiful snake skin to make into a wrap for my pool cue. Beyond that, I could pay off my bills and give the rest to charity (or to SageFr0g just to see what he would do with it--kind of a private joke).

    Default The Pervert's Guide to the ZenZone

    I find it difficult to comprehend how no one else here seems to follow the work of Slavoj Žižek. Žižek sees ideology as an unconscious fantasy that structures reality (according to the revisionists that edit Wikipedia).[p] Some quotes from "Zizek!" (2005) according to IMBD: "I don't think that philosophers ever provided answers, but I think this was the greatness of philosophy." "My big worry is not to be ignored but to be accepted." A website for his most recent film: http://www.thepervertsguide.com/

    From Wiki: Politically, Žižek advocates communism as the only alternative to the contemporary institutional arrangements. Seeing as he advocates a largely-dead, discredited and unworkable philosophy, perhaps that is why few take him seriously.

    I had mentioned the "revisionist" editors at Wikipedia. They rarely understand subtleties--hey, that might be good third job for you, Mr. Katzweezel.

    If you want see how maligned Zizek is, check this humor rag devoted to making fun of him at: http://zizekstudies.org/index.php/ijzs/index
    Some recent articles include: "Peace of Ass" and "Why That Monkey Washes His Balls in My Whiskey".

    Poppy Bush said he was not there in Dealey Plaza that day, that he was 'somewhere in Texas' but unable to remember exactly where. What a goddamm liar is the Patriarch of the Bush Crime Family. He was there all right, to see the outcome of what he helped to create... as it happened.
