This was posted on my page from a girl I went to high school with....She said. "I have struggled to understand this for a long time...A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God......Well said Ravi Zacharias..." How would YOU respond to this? Would you respond to this?

Much ado about nothing.

Ruby Wax expresses it: 

"First thing on the road to wisdom is to face ourselves honestly.  People used to call it baring your soul, I call it looking in the mirror and cutting the bullshit." 

@Simon - Ruby Wax was talking about her depression, and is the poster girl, and wants more celebrities to come out of the closet, to show just how many people suffer with it. Winston Churchill, Stephen Fry, Richard Drayfuss, Jim Carrey, loads of very productive people. That is what she was talking about - honesty.

He's just being his usual snitty self, ignore him, and hopefully he willl go away.

Suzanne - I love Ruby Wax.  She seems to have reinvented herself as a mindfulness-based cognitive therapist - have you seen her new book?  It's very chatty, but has a lot of good insights.  This quote is taken from a section headed "The Road to Wisdom". 

She says that practicing compassion gives us pleasure because it raises the levels of oxytocin - and that's what I was looking for. 

I would tell her" " I'll pray for you "
turn around, and walk away.
