It’s moving night, They’ve packed their things and spread their wings. Time to go where the cool waters flow, the flowers bloom, and all things are green. If you see a flicker out of the corner of your eye, or think you here a gentle sigh. Remember it’s moving night the Fay have taken flight.

What You don’t believe in Faeries ? Well I do, after all I am a TROLL

  1. Oh! Faeries! ….all is forgiven, then.

    …carry on with your advocation for secret death squads a la Stalin….killing people without trial to “send a message.”

  2. There ain’t no fairies, no leprechauns, no gnomes and no Father Christmas either.
    So there.

  3. There ain’t no fairies, no leprechauns, no gnomes and no Father Christmas either

    And no God?

  4. The God I believe in Mr Paul McMahon, is no cuddly old figure with a white beard. My God is outside of time and space, He created the universe. He is the First Cause and has always been and will always be. He is way beyond our human comprehension. He revealed Himself to us through the Scriptures and finally through Jesus Christ. He loves me and even you.
    When I die,
    (which won’t be long if you keep on posting your incredibly boring and repetitious stuff)
    there will either be nothing, in which case none of it matters; or I will be meeting my God and my Saviour.
    Which will totally blow my mind…
    I’m not keen on dying, but inside me is an excitement about what happens next.

  5. My God is outside of time and space

    So all are those other ‘beings’ you listed above.

  6. That is your position of faith Paul,
    Cos you DON’T KNOW, you only believe.
    Neither of us will KNOW ’til we die.
    I can happily live with that.

  7. Agi, we’ve had this conversation before. I’ve told you that I hope that there is something after this life. I suspect that there isn’t but I would dearly love to have my suspicions proved incorrect.

    You’re right I don’t know, no one does, so it’s not my ‘position of faith’ and to have faith in an unknown is to have blind faith and is illogical.

    The only point that I was trying to make regarding my original comment was to ask how you can absolutely dismiss out of hand the figures you mention above don’t exist yet believe so fervently in something that you can’t prove exists?

  8. I’ve told you that I hope that there is something after this life. I suspect that there isn’t but I would dearly love to have my suspicions proved incorrect. You’re right I don’t know, no one does

    Really? Has anyone ever come back from the grave to confirm the afterlife? Not that I know of.

  9. “You’re right I don’t know, no one does, so it’s not my ‘position of faith’ and to have faith in an unknown is to have blind faith and is illogical.”

    It is a position of faith Paul, in that from the all the evidence your mind has evaluated you have decided that there is nothing “out there”. And of course there are many people like you. But none of us were there at the beginning to observe.
    Then there is the problem of the millions like me, who have also evaluated the evidence and some believe in Intelligent Design, and many more like me accept that the evidence of nature, the universe and even our own human nature shows that there is design and evil in the world. You should bear in mind that there are many intelligent scientists who believe in Creation and Christianity. I don’t know if you have ever read about even one of these people, but to be scientific and thorough, you should. I know people who with the utmost sincerity have asked God to reveal Himself to them.
    Finally let’s suppose we could communicate with a caterpillar. We explain to him/it that one day he will stop munching on leaves, and his little legs will disappear, he will change colour, stop moving and turn into something called a chrysalis.
    Not only that, but one day he will burst out of that hard casing and emerge as a beautiful butterfly and his wings will unfurl, pump themselves up with fluid and he will fly away.
    You think he might laugh at us?
    I know we have been down this route before, but I think it is such an important issue it is always worth re examining. Just for the fact that the Bible says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…

  10. Tongue in cheek or not Phantom is right.
    Jesus did.
    Not only that His body had changed. He had the ability to eat and drink yet materialise and dematerialise in front of many witnesses.
    Now if you dodos are going to argue that they were all colliding together, why would they do that when they faced persecution and crucifixion? You don’t think someone would have blown the whistle and exposed it as a hoax? Or they were all victims of hallucinations?
    Jesus is God who became man and died on the Cross for our sins. He rose again from the dead and ascended into Heaven and changed the world, and two thousand years later people still believe and live their lives accordingly.

  11. Really? Has anyone ever come back from the grave to confirm the afterlife? Not that I know of

    Peter, if that question is directed at me I don’t know why you asked it.

    If you read my comment again you’ll see that I’m sceptical to the idea and have never suggested that anyone has come back from the grave (except maybe Vincent Price)

  12. It is a position of faith Paul, in that from the all the evidence your mind has evaluated you have decided that there is nothing “out there”

    That’s untrue. I have decided that I don’t know if there’s anything ‘out there’and am open to persusasion on something which is an unkown. Therefore, it’s not a position of faith for me.

  13. ahh the typical fun of a Friday night at ATW I’m sorry I missed it, but I wasn’t passing up the combination of that moon, the nice temp, and maybe a chance to see a fay… So I went fishing at nice pond I like to go to at night and caught some largemouth bass. Now I have a few things to say.

    First of this post was done for fun and as typical most were nasty.

    Kateyo: What the hell is your problem? Every post I do you come on drop one comment of nastiness and then leave. It is obvious you have no desire to contribute to anything I have to say, so why don’t you just ignore my stuff, or you such a nasty ole shrew that you can’t help yourself?

    A8: My friend, You know I am a Catholic and a believer Lighten up. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. and in mine.

    The one god comes and silences all the others.

    I do not badger people on their religion or lack of religion (unless their religion instructs them to kill people).

    Are their faeries ? Every culture on earth has legends of them. If you believe in heaven you have to believe in hell. Even if you have no deity you are still surrounded by mystery that you will never be able to explain.

    Why do we humans think the Universe revolves around us? There is no more arrogant creature than man.

  14. Are their faeries ? Every culture on earth has legends of them. If you believe in heaven you have to believe in hell. Even if you have no deity you are still surrounded by mystery that you will never be able to explain

    My point exactly Troll. Why is it okay to believe in one unproven phenomena and not in another?

  15. It’s all a matter of choice, free will. Your an Agnostic and there is nothing wrong with that.

  16. “That’s untrue. I have decided that I don’t know if there’s anything ‘out there’and am open to persusasion on something which is an unkown. Therefore, it’s not a position of faith for me.”

    Okay, whatever Paul.
    I found this a pretty interesting website for agnostics and atheists..
    All the arguments against the existence of God you could wish for.

  17. ” Why do we humans think the Universe revolves around us? There is no more arrogant creature than man.”

    Question.
    Do you think Jesus Christ who claimed to be the Son of God who considered it necessary to take the form of man and die on the cross so that sinful man might be reconciled to a Holy God and rose again from the dead, believed in faeries?
    I like thinking about all sorts of things, but when it comes to my faith there can be no compromises. It’s either true or it’s a faery story.

  18. You shouldn’t confuse agnostics with atheists Agi. They are two different beasts.

    There is much evidence to suggest that a God doesn’t exist it’s the arguments for a God’s existence and the counter arguments against it that I’m interested in. That’s how conclusions are reached.

  19. I ain’t confusing anything Pauly.
    I believe it’s important to consider all the arguments for and against. That’s why I read books that argue against God or where people just don’t know. If my faith can’t cope with that it’s not much use.

  20. A8
    A belief in faeries or aliens or bigfoot does not change or threaten my Christianity. Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ shall come again. Both of our faiths are stronger than to be swayed by a mystery. It is being confronted by such things and still believing that gives the strength to faith.

    When we finally discover life on another planet will it destroy your faith? It won’t hurt mine.

    I don’t believe god put all his eggs in one basket.

  21. Then you’ll know that agnosticism & athehiesm are two different concepts.

    As I said; there are multitudes of evidence based arguments to prove the non existence of a God it’s the ones with try to prove an existence and their counter – arguments which interest me.

    And, why is it acceptable to believe in one mythical being yet dismiss the existence of others out of hand?

  22. I don’t mind an agnostic, atheists however rub me the wrong way. Atheism is a religion, one that demands the destruction of all others…. sounds familiar doesn’t it?

  23. Troll and Agi, let me ask you a question which I hope that you will try to examine objectively and answer truthfully.

    If you were born in a country where a different faith from Christianity was dominant would you follow that belief system?

  24. “And, why is it acceptable to believe in one mythical being yet dismiss the existence of others out of hand?”

    It isn’t a case of dismissing them out of hand.
    I have books on all the world’s major religions, their origins and developments. I have books on Islam, books on Christianity, I have books on theology and the problem of evil. Books on Atlantis and other legends, UFOs and abductions etc.

    But let’s pose this question: if there was a chance that there really is a God, not a sky God, or a Sky Pixie, but a real being who is far beyond our comprehension, and he is as Jesus says he is, then doesn’t it make good sense to examine all the evidence and even in the quietness and sincerity of our own heart to ask him to reveal himself to us? The Bible says God loves us, he sent his son to die so that we could have a relationship with God himself and be changed from within.

    Regarding
    ” If you were born in a country where a different faith from Christianity was dominant would you follow that belief system?”
    Well unless someone told me about Christianity I wouldn’t know any different, but the Bible says that God will judge each non Christian according to their own moral value system. He will look into their hearts and judge them on the basis of their own morality.

    Have a look at these two links..

  25. Oops,
    Just re read your question!
    You mean if I was a Christian living in say a Muslim country or a Hindu country?

  26. No, I mean if you were born into the other faith and it was the dominant faith in the country.

  27. It isn’t a case of dismissing them out of hand

    Which is precisely what you did.

    There ain’t no fairies, no leprechauns, no gnomes and no Father Christmas either

  28. Paul,
    When you’re talking about really serious stuff like the meaning of life and the origins of the universe, find me any serious philosopher or scientist who actually believes in ANY of those things and their place in the scheme of things..

    “No, I mean if you were born into the other faith and it was the dominant faith in the country.”
    Ah, so my original understanding was right.
    ?
    !

  29. Paul who can know with what ifs.

    I was raised catholic. I have studied other religions and I am still a Catholic. That is the reference point that I have.

  30. That’s a fair enough answer Troll at least you’re not rejecting the possibility.

    When you’re talking about really serious stuff like the meaning of life and the origins of the universe, find me any serious philosopher or scientist who actually believes in ANY of those things and their place in the scheme of things..

    It’s all relevant Agi, all of it is unexplained phenomona. If an unproven superior being exists then why can’t other mythical beings?

    I’d wager that the majority of secular philosophy argues against the existence of a God and for a scientist to believe in a God is contradictory to science logic.Does that mean that because they are ‘serious’ you accept their POV on such things?

  31. Paul,
    I enjoy discussing goblins, fairies, leprechauns and uFOs, but if we’re talking first causes and ultimate meaning, they just don’t qualify.

  32. But if we’re talking first causes and ultimate meaning, they just don’t qualify.

    We’re not we’re speaking about belief in unproven entities.
