A friend of mine, somebody I used to work with at ‘Case Communications‘ (when I first came here in 1986), sent these to me. We share the same views that there should be more interfaith collegiality. I am very grateful. These were from Baltimore, Md — once bastion of Catholicism (and one could even claim the original cradle of U.S. Catholicism, the ‘Baron of Baltimore‘ a British Roman Catholic.

This year, i.e., 2016, as you now know is rather special in that the first night of Chanukah/Hanukkah falls on Christmas Eve.

But, the more I think about it the ‘Star of David‘ is the MOST apropos of Christmas tree toppings given that Jesus was born a Jew and was extremely proud of his ‘House of David’ heritage (though this has always confused me since her has, by definition, no bloodline connection with that House).

They are, by the way, available on Amazon.

Think – Today: Do Christians, Jews & Muslims Share The Same Heaven?

by Anura Guruge

heavensgrocerystoretopWorth a thought? I am NEVER going there and have no desire, whatsoever, of going there. I actually do NOT believe in an afterlife. Nada. But, that does NOT stop me from thinking on behalf of those that do? Mean if you are planning on going to heaven don’t you want to know who else will be there? And then there is the question of the martyrs from the various religions. They, per tradition, automatically go to heaven. NOW think about that. Wow, there could be people up there that might cause you to raise an eyebrow. {SMILE}


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “How Long After The ‘Big Bang’ Did Light Come To Be” — the ‘Big Bang’, per the theory, was far from a conventional explosion, despite the name. There was NO sound, and there was NO flash. That much we can deduce. Why? The ‘stuff’, the ‘material’, the ‘particles’ needed for complex ‘things’ like light just had not come to be! Yes, it is all theory and conjecture BUT they [i.e., scientists who work on this stuff] reckon that it was at least 400,000 years — and possibly MUCH, MUCH, MUCH later (like a few hundred MILLION years) — before there was any light in the Universe. Google it. Read more. THINK. {SMILE}

No question. Compared to the nightmare of 2013 it is like night and day.

But you still run into issues like this. This was at 12:30am (i.e., just past midnight) on Tuesday, December 6, 2016.

Not good. Very frustrating. I can’t proceed any further! Have to call the Help Center — later.
