How the future goes will depend in part on
the ethical treatment of honest advocates.
I think it is likely some persons in the Indian Ocean region attempt to create a Tsunami Warning System and received dismissive responses in the spirit in which Wandaqueen, Ruquist, Harv and Dick Stafford respond to my posts on this web site. The future of your own world hangs in the balance -- will religious and quasi-scientific dialogues always be as idiotic as this one frequently becomes?

"The Socratic method
Mike uses the method of Socrates, except that Socrates also provided the answers.
Mike. Have you ever provided any answers?

Science runs on questions. Lots of questions were asked in the Bible. Is anonyWandaqueen saying Socrates invented questions?

0) Oh, you want that in the form of an "answer."
Okay: "Wandaqueen's" "Socrates" reference is inapt.

To avoid doing the work for both of us, I would ask "Wandaqueen's" question be researched more completely before I take the time to answer.

1) How did Wandaqueen come to be without an answer to that question?
My writing on this forum, possibly with some exceptions, is still here. Go back and see !
The search engine of does not let me find some of my posts such as one where I quoted from the Bhagavad Gita (that should have been easy to find expecially since I tried various spellings in case I had misspelled it!)
2)Is "Wandaqueen" serious? If so:
3) Is "Wandaqueen" stating indirectly that "Wandaqueen" thinks the answer to the question is "no?"
4) Why is "Wandaqueen" anonymous on this forum?

5) While awaiting "Wandaqueen's" rephrasing of the question, let's see a relevant exchange shown below where

Richard Ruquist provided an answer. I provided a question. "Wandaqueen" (not a real name) did not weigh in on this one -- "Wandaqueen" not always being a skeptic about mysticism?

Yanniru wrote: "That's how it works in heaven and on earth."

at, Michael W. Pearson replied:
How, Yanniru, did you come to know this is the way it works in Heaven?"
Neither Wandaqueen nor Richard Ruquist replied yet.
