And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last, 1:18 and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
John was on some pretty intense shit when he wrote all that.

The very definition of a bad trip.
You could have listened to that little voice who questioned you and your eternity many years ago. Instead you blocked it and now you have become deaf.

I find the scriptures, be it Bible, Taosism, Boudism, Koran, etc...very interesting, especially since they lead to the same point.

The conditions have changed massively since the '70s though. The balls are lighter, the cloth is super fine and makes potting so easy for the pros that the game has become a joke.  You couldn't break build back then the way you can now... pack splits and potting, esp down the rails, was a lot harder.  Additionally, positional play was tougher.  The cue action needed back then to go round the angles was much harder.  Go to your local club and you'll likely find thicker cloth... and you'll quickly see how balls don't pot when they hit any part of the inner jaw - or how hard it is to get action on the cueball.  And your local club will still not come near to the cloth of the '70s.

Part of the reason I largely stopped watching snooker is that it's become a one man sport.

That sound just like tennis before new strings came on the scene.

Now we have a shot variety bigger than ever, but the game itself has become monotonous. (with a few exceptions)

Yeah, there are parallels.  Definitely.  But tennis still has far more going on in it than snooker.  And it still has 3 surfaces that do play at least somewhat differently - even now.  Snooker is one surface... and it;s been severely dumbed down.  Snooker is like checkers; tennis is like chess.

PS  Darts is like tic-tac-toe - even though I am good at it and love playing it.

Yeah, they’re all a load of nonsense. I can agree on that.

Funny how the Book of Revelations corresponds so well to an intense psychedelic experience. Even the title implies some kind of seriously mind blowing episode. It’s pretty obvious that’s what it was - the whole account is complete and utter bollocks with one crazy event morphing into another; trumpets, dragons, weird recurrent numbers. Pity they didn’t set it all down with pictures, they would have been wild..

BB,
I appreciate you trusting in your own ability etc.
But just because you don’t understand something, doesn’t mean it’s a “load of nonsense”.

If everyone thought like you, we’d still be tilling the ground with old tools...which in hindsight is not such a bad thing.

But we are where we are precisely because the Bible said  so many thousands of years ago.

Woah! The Bible told us to invent space rockets and do genetic engineering? Was that in Leviticus?

If everyone thought like me the World would be incredible, full of people taking personal responsibility with no need for oppressive government.

Anyway, sorry for the derail but I just don’t buy the need for fantasy books to tell us to behave. And I certainly don’t think some guys bad acid trip needs to be taken seriously.

Yes, you’ve hot the nail on the head.

That is the only reason people are not interested in following teachings of Christ, it’s simply too tough...and people like you don’t like to see themselves as anything less than perfect.

As a result, we have a chaos, destroyed planet and billions of unhappy people.

You obviously don’t understand the nuance of English. I said I don’t need a fantasy book to tell me, the implication being that grown ups can work this out for themselves.

Disbelief is nothing to do with it being hard, it’s because most of us simply don’t buy superstitious nonsense.

Word “fantasy” has nothing to do woth nuancies in any language, let alone English.
It’s a basic adjective common in any indoeuropean language.

The Bible has nothing to do with superstition, quite the opposite.

If you made an effort to read it, you’d know it.

Again, I repeat, the only reason why masses or “most of you” don’t like it is because it’s tok hard to follow, requires humility. Amd of course not to be confused with the mess men have made out of it trying to suit it to their selfish needs.

Since we are both hapoy to stick by our guns, there is only one way to find out who is right on this one, you or I, when we die.

Religion sucks, only good for those who are insecure in real world. Officially.

When you die you are 2 meters in underground mud, same as anyone else, anyway too much of it from nitb in this forum.

Anyway back to reality, think Fed will take this No1 a bit more seriously then we are talking here, so not just a week and be done, I bet he will play some Clay too.

Happily, you won’t know you’re wrong. Belief is mysticcal nonsense like skyfather creator guff is the very definition of superstition, so that’s what it is pure and simple. I’ve read loads of it, it’s just a load of nonsense with significant parts patched together from other religions. Bloody Middle East has a lot to answer for dumping this crap on the rest of us.

I repeat, I don’t believe it because it’s total bollocks. Nothing to do with a hard way, I know plenty of creeps who believe in God and live sloppy lives. That really is a weak belief, it’s just there to make you feel superior (which is pride isn’t it?)

Maybe but I hope he leaves the clay alone unless he’s completely certain he will be fully fit for Wimbledon. Last year suggests he ran short at the end even with no clay so I hope he skips it.

Monte Carlo is pretty, but a Mickey Mouse tournament.

Rome is the real deal.

Rome is also much closer to Wimbledon.

I like trumpets and I like Trump.  But Revelations takes it to Bob Marley pot smokin' levels.
