I have reviewed your responce to my question on how life began, and for creativity, you get an "a". I was also quite amused. May I ask how you came to be a self proclaimed wiccan advisor? What credentials does one need? I am also a coffee drinker, does that count? By the way,peace, love, and joy to you, lessons come at every level, be ever watchful for those that teach humility, as they are the hardest to swallow. I will continue to read your answers,I am very intrigued.
Merry meet to you too, mother goddess of the moon,replies are always welcome.
p.s did you know that life as we know it in regard to evolution is still inexplicable scientifically? ask any educated cellular biologist, there is no link from the organelle (not alive)to the first living cell. For all other life through time, there is evidence of a link that may explain the origin, but with all our breakthrough technology, we still cannot explain the first basic life form. Just thought you would like to know.

DEAR "CURIOUS", MERRY MEET AGAIN!
I WAS HAPPY TO SEE YOU ENJOYED THE BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF MY PERSONAL THEORY OF HOW WE CAME TO BE HERE... AND I MYSELF MUST ADMIT IT IS FAR FETCHED AND SOMEWHAT IMPROBABLE... BUT I WILL ACCEPT YOUR GRADE PURELY FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT VALUE, WITH 'HUMILITY'... (AS SHE CHOKES DOWN THAT TOUGH PILL).
YOU ASKED ABOUT MY 'SELF PROCLAIMED' ADVISORSHIP... I PROCLAIM NOTHING BUT THE FACT THAT I AM WICCAN, AND PEOPLE APPEAR TO LIKE ASKING ME FOR ADVICE...(OR JUST WRITING OUT OF CURIOUSITY)...I DO NOT WANT TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT I AM TRYING TO ELEVATE MYSELF TO SOME LEVEL, WHICH I AM CERTAIN OTHERS ARE MORE QUALIFIED FOR. I AM A PERSON. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.... I WORK, PAY BILLS, DRIVE A CAR POOL...AND HATE TO PAY TAXES LIKE EVERYONE ELSE....
SOME PEOPLE HAVE A TALENT FOR ART, OTHERS MUSIC. I HAPPEN TO BE SOMEONE PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS COME TO FOR A SHOULDER TO LEAN ON, AN EAR TO LISTEN, AND OCCASIONALLY, TO ASK FOR SOME ADVICE....AS FAR AS CREDENTIALS, WELL THE ONLY DIPLOMAS ON MY WALL ARE FOR NURSING SCIENCE AND EUROPEAN HISTORY.
IF COFFEE DRINKING WAS THE WAY TO GET THAT LAURAL WREATH, I'D HAVE ENOUGH TO MAKE A GOOD SIZED GARLAND! :) UNFORTUNATELY, I'LL HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THE EMPTY CANS I END UP WITH TO STORE MY HARDWARE IN...
NOW I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU. WHY DO YOU WRITE YOUR QUESTIONS AND REPLIES AS ANONYMOUS? COULD IT BE THAT YOU ARE ALSO LISTED AS AN EXPERT? IS THIS THE RICE PAPER TEST, THAT YOUNG GRASSHOPPER MUST PASS TO PROVE WORTHINESS? (PLEASE, I SAY THIS NOT AS AN INSULT BY ANY MEANS...I THINK IT WOULD BE QUITE INTERESTING TO CONVERSE WITH SOMEONE ELSE LISTED HERE... AS THE ANSWERS I HAVE READ FROM SOME OF MY FELLOW WICCANS HAVE BEEN VERY WELL WRITTEN AND EXPLAINED...)I LOVE TO VIEW OTHERS OPINIONS AND TEACHINGS, AS I AM ALWAYS SEEKING AND LEARNING MYSELF...
YOU INVITE MY REPLY, BUT GIVE ME NO ONE TO REPLY TO...
AS FOR THE POST SCRIPT: THAT IS TRUE, AND PERHAPS WE ARE JUST DESTINED TO NEVER KNOW THE WHOLE STORY...BUT AS I SAID BEFORE...WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FORWARD FOR OUR ANSWERS, NOT BEHIND.
WHO REALLY WANTS TO GO TO SOMEPLACE THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN, WHEN THERE ARE STILL PLACES WE HAVEN'T SEEN?
BLESSINGS TO YOU FRIEND...AND MERRY MEET AGAIN.
WITH JOY, LOVE AND PEACE,
