> Adam, could you please just relax! This is the third time in a little over a week you've reacted this way to one of my posts. I'm not out to flame you every time you write something ... I don't object to what you've been writing, and I truly do have better things to do than pick on people at random from this board. I'm sorry for whatever I'm saying that makes you keep reacting this way -- so if you have some problem with what I've been posting, just email me ... if I objected to the mail, I wouldn't post my address.
> With the black and white nature of etext and its complete lack of inflection or any other non-verbal cuing, plus the fact that this mode of communication is asynchronous and that can screw any sense of context as well, it's really easy to misconstrue the connotation of people's posts. So try not to assume the worst from the start ... it's often the opposite of what the author intends.

I'm not sure I know how this chat works. I don't think God made any mistakes. In Genesis he gave "man" free-will. "Man" choose to rebel and got kicked out of the "Garden". I have had long bouts of depression in the past. I wonder whats at the root of it? Does your depression revolve around any particular issue? For me it did. I had to resolve this issue the best I could over a long period of time, and it is still with me to an extent. I think depression involves a certain amount of narcissism, or inflated ego, or unhealthy self-importance. I messed with fringe spirituality and cannot recommend it. I think it is self destructive in the end. Christianity for me gave mechanisms for and helped to make sense of experiences that scientific rationalism doesn't. One man's id impulse is another man's demon. The labeling doesn't change the nature of the beast. I can't say for sure that anyone else's depression had the same root cause as mine, no one can really know the experience of another, but if it revolves around
one central issue, come to terms with it the best you can, and move on. Grieving over spilled milk will not fill the cup back up.
