    I'm not buying that. Sorry.

    I don't want to get to deep into religion, but I can't buy that our actions are meaningless in some grand scheme. Sorry.

      believe. I don't believe it either, but then, I don't believe in salvation.

      The best is when you talk with someone that believes in predestination. Now that's really of interest.

        I hope you mean that as a snark.  From what I remember from my Calvinist upbringing, predestination comes essentially down to all life being run by some etheric computer program.

          of interest. I was talking to one guys and he said yes, in fact the socks he ws going to wear tomorrow had been selected. I tried to explain that if this is true, then logically I can go out and do anything, since it already has been determined that I will do so. He didn't seem to get it.

          I will add that many Muslims belieive in this too. The Mujhadeen fighters wouldn't seek cover from the Soviets because it was God's will if they were going to live or not.
