  • Re: Meditation and Chronic Fatigue

    I definitely think most cases of CFS are viral, rather than adrenal, as about 75% of CFS sufferers can trace their onset back to an acute viral illness. ME is the same thing as CFS, although I prefer to say CFS as "myalgic encephalomyelitis" does sound rather cryptic. I don't think there's any proof that CFS is caused by inflammation of the brain, it's just one of many theories. I personally strongly believe in Dr John Chia's research showing that many cases of CFS are linked to persistent infections with a group of viruses called enteroviruses, that the immune system cannot irradiate. Although I know glandular fever/mono can also trigger it.

    For every nice thing in the bible you can find something horrible. Especially in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. They could always say that they are taking their inspiration from there.

  • Re: Richard Dawkins v. Deepak Chopra

    I admire anyone like Dawkins who takes part in the task of driving away the beast of religion and superstition from the civilized world and thwarts anyone who attempts to use Science for a religious or superstitious agenda.

  • Re: Enemies

    Unfortunately I have like a dozen at least. They are all from my school and most of the time it is mainly because they are objectionable yobs and many of them are very homophobic and ignorant. Also school kids can be so bitchy these days. I try to have a compassion for them but it really can be challenging.

  • Re: Atheism and the original teachings

    You can still be an Atheist and believe in rebirth. People forget the only thing necessary to qualify as an Atheist is to not believe there is a God or gods, not to disbelieve in anything other than the material.
