Quote# 97167

God can give you a high that no chemical substance can hope to match. Try it, just give it a go you'll see. You may want to take your materialist assumption blinkers off first, try to bear in mind there is no "no evidence" for it and it isn't "more rational" to assume a universe of this complexity wasn't engineered given the level of natural balance on which this complexity depends. All that has been got out of the way now and you can harness the power. You don't shut off your brain you make use of all of it including, the parts you have been shutting off or ignoring. The Force will flow through you.

No chemical substance? Really you're blathering like a pothead who's sucked down a half dozen Redbulls.

Or, you could just have an orgasm. It's called an endorphin high. It can be induced through hypnotism too, with a lot less induction/indoctrination. Hare Krishnas can tell you all about it too. Same bullshit, different day.

Does it work for all gods or just yours?

Yeah, the Bible was great until Lucas wrote those awful prequels. I mean, Leviticus, what was he thinking?

I have heard this BS from EVERY theist under the sun: ever religion has its ecstatic branch, from folks who talk in tongues to dervishes to people who chant the same words over and over.

Want to get the same feeling without the Big Sky Daddy? Run, and keep running until you get a sudden burst of well-being and perfection. It's called runner's high and it's all legal, natural and you don't have to shut your brain off.

I'm sorry but, if there's no evidence, I do not want to bother with it.

Remember kids, say no to Bibles.

Bullshit. Or in the words of Rick James "Cocaine's a hell of a drug"

Try it, just give it a go you'll see.

I did. I still preferred heroin.

Speaking as someone who has never taken anything stronger than what my physician has prescribed me, Jean-Michel Jarre's complex aural landscapes and sonic warps into the imagination are the only drug I need, thanks.

I can certainly see - via "Magnetic Fields Part II" in the above 'Paris La Defense' gig in 1990 - how this live version is better than that on the original album.

The Force is with him. Lightsabres? He has a Laser Harp.

Oh trust me, I'm fully ready to believe that you're getting high on this God thing. It's kind of how I view it working. Getting high isn't even that bad a thing, can be good to relax sometimes.

The Force? Through me? Naawww.

"Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense." ~Han Solo

So, by inference, belief in God is more damaging than any chemical substance as well.

I've tried the God thing. Not so good. Have you tried all the available chemical substances?

I find your conviction of faith disturbing.

Self-hypnosis really does work. But according to brain scans, the greatest self-induced happiness is in the Buddhists.

Running. Music. Incense. Yoga.

I don't need your god to get a good high.
