Hi Jim

I know I said I wouldn't comment of this but......

I do not doubt for one instant just how disturbing such an event
would/can/is be.

When I was a child I used to have a recurring dream about
floating around outside my house at that time. I know about such
a things as Astral travel <can't do it now I'm all grown up :-(

This feeling, could it be as intangible as "faith" but just as
convincing?

I believe that levitation has been proved and to apply it to something I
mentioned earlier, could it _only_ have been a dream?

With no insult intended or suggested.
Did you know that childhood fears can pervade even unto retirement?

That's a shame really, but I can see where you are coming from.

My belief in God has nothing to do with my intellect, only my
"gut feeling". So I am in awe that you can believe by intellect,
again no insult intended or suggested.

Steven Hawking is a genius without a doubt, so if he says God
can exist how can people doubt it :-)

That's for sure :-)

Jim you are only as old as the woman you feel, or you are only
as old as you feel, take your pick :-). Me, on some days I feel
a hundred, not bad considering I'm only a third of that.
