    I think especially in the West people have become bored and disenchanted with the word God.

    It doesn't matter how one describes the One. It can be called God, Creator, Tao, Brahman.

    i agree, it really doesn't matter as long as one has a pure heart regarding their belief, but at the same time i shouldn't conflate and thereby confuse the difference between belief and faith.

    One can always default to Mead, Sid...though the Americans Gods believe that Mead is crap and that Kentucky Bourbon will get you higher than Odin himself.

    We used to go dancing regularly at The Horse you Came in On in Fells Point. It's a Jack Daniels bar and you can have your own numbered bottle there which you drink from when you come. They also have a bunch of infusions.

    They bought the space next door and opened a tequila bar, but it doesn't do nearly as well as the original bar.


    God is love. That is one of my favorite phrases. I always taught my son that love is the most powerful thing.

    Jack Daniels = good
    Tequila = airstrikes on your premises

    Jack Daniels, hmm...I apologize for my earlier suggestion, Sid...I should have remembered that 'Whisky' is well, whisky and the afficianado draws a strict line. The thing is i did a quick search of 'whisky' to ensure that I wasn't being offensive when i was so bold as to suggest Kentucky Bourbon 'Whisky', but rest assured it will never happen again...I'm bowing low as I back away...
