I prefer to be attentive to existing voices and leave the dead to chat amongst themselves.
Quote:

2......Blameless and harmless. Phil 2:15.

Like the babies that die every day by the thousands through no fault of their own?

If it makes sense to be.

Nope. I have character and I like having character. It's people with no spirit that are dull as used dishwater.

Nope. Gods never took an interest in me so I don't of them. I am mostly self-taught.
Quote:

30...True. 2 Cor 6:8.

, false. Up, down. Black, white. On, off.
Accurate. Correct. Precise.
I can think of lots of antonyms and synonyms.

Lotta people have disbelieved me about lots of things. Their loss, not mine.
