    Nice posting Sam,

    A message <deleted/>, a declaration that it appears to say that I don't actually read you postings and a defense of materials you found useful, the Tim Freke vid.

    That sums up the ideas posted.

    I thought it was pretty clear that my view on Tim was not really a broad "for all" statement (the verbatum was even rather conversational), rather my particular frustrated experience listening to the inarticulate monotone. In fact I can't imagine how someone could suggest that I was commenting on the content being delivered, rather, it seems clear to me I mostly about the delivery method. Maybe there where too many big word. <shrug/>

    I will say, perhaps I do have some difficulty understanding some of the things you write. And while that is a possibility, I often find that I'm in general agreement with your views. They are moderate, down to earth, well thought out and for the most part well articulated, although maybe you were tired when you made the previous post.

    EDIT

    I think I completely misinterpreted the first two paragraphs of you prior posting. Pardon me. Cause for thought. I think I understand your posting better now. I certainly agree with the last part quoted below:

    If I write words that are serious and covering perhaps the most important subjects discussed in a publicly accessed forum, perhaps I should put a great deal of care into how I phrase things?
    Maybe it's time to take on a rule or two... :/ I'll sleep on it. Thanks you all for the extra time to come revisit this.

    Hi Icam88. I read both the original post and the edit. I appreciated the original as there were honest feelings coming through. The second (the edit) is good too. Perhaps there's no "rightest" view of anything. Perhaps the things I call "lessons learned" and the silly rules I make for myself in relation to my thoughts, words and deeds are silly too. I am just living life like you are.

    We are all just sharing opinions, yes?

    One good thing about this thread is that I only see one former member in the list of those who have looked at this thread.

    I was riding into town tonight and can you guess what they brought up on the radio? That 'profound BS' paper.

    Sam:

    Thanks for the reply and the complement. Likewise, if I where to find your posts insincere they probably wouldn't be interesting to reply to.

    There is that "margin of interpretation" perhaps as part of an introduction of "tone" that mostly absent from written materials. I think I introduced more into it than I later liked.

    Rightness views, once you put aside posturing and inflection (like what we've had here with my change of tone) are subjective as in as per each individual, as you say.

    And perhaps not. But is that suggestion you are making?

    I will say that when you can find silliness in "handle-less baggage" that we tend to accumulate, we can be sure we have grown.

    Only, opinions and views only, indeed.

    bsbray:

    Where any new idea worth considering brought up listening to that radio presentation? I really liked the way you resumed that issue.

    No, lcamm. It was one of those short soundbite-type comments made between songs being played, and the guy talking about it seemed to have taken its conclusions for granted already.
