    Hmmm, indeed. The Israelis (while I perfectly understand their situation) have not been model world citizens in the last 40 years ... especially if you happen to be Palestinian.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    This is true, but I still feel sympathy for them.

    Has any Country been a model of goodness, the job of the Israeli government now is to protect its citizens, if provoked it will retaliate and who can argue with that.

    As to has any country been a model of goodness, yours seems to fit the bill pretty much.

    OK, I should have said major Countries, we (NZ) really do not have any impact at all in the world in that sense, we don't even have a workable air force any more

    You do have impact - the world certainly took notice when you told the Yanks to NOT bring their nuclear powered warships into Auckland Harbour, and, the Japs will know better when dealing with Greenpeace! LOL

    David,
    Greenpeace is a pussy cat, Paul Watson speaks the only language the Japs understand.
    It was David Lange that gave it to the Americans he was a good guy but buckled in to Roger the lodger in the end, Bloody Roger Douglas Grrrrrrr

    We had a 5 aftershock at 8 ish this morning but only about 5-6k deep, caused a lot more damage, I live near to 2 active Volcanoes and have been through 2 good eruptions and a few minor ones, so Volcanoes and Earthquakes make you realise how weak we are compared to the forces of nature, global warming yes but man made no no no

    Bless you for the update, Dear Colin........
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
