Do you believe in the God or do you believe in a godBecause it's always up to individuals interpretations. God will help us during this time. So did God decide 2 year old Molly needed to die for some mysterious plan from COVID?
Or did 35 year old housewife Angela need to die during this time because her abusive husband Mark started drinking more due to being unemployed and off work so he decided to shoot her and himself?
I mean come on now. If God is responsible for helping us, he is equally responsible for allowing the situation to occur. It's called balance. It's arrogance to assume there is some master plan to this.
Is that it?I am Agnostic - meaning I do believe there is a higher power. Whether to call it a God or not is up to the individual. I feel my beliefs are most closely to that of Marcus Aurelius, who did believe in God(s) but at the same time acknowledged it was possible that there isn't a God.
Here is an excerpt from his Philosophiae
To the gods I am indebted for having good grandfathers, good parents, a good sister, good teachers, good associates, good kinsmen and friends, nearly everything good. Further, I owe it to the gods that I was not hurried into any offence against any of them, though I had a disposition which, if opportunity had offered, might have led me to do something of this kind; but, through their favour, there never was such a concurrence of circumstances as put me to the trial. Further, I am thankful to the gods that I was not longer brought up with my grandfather's concubine, and that I preserved the flower of my youth, and that I did not make proof of my virility before the proper season, but even deferred the time; that I was subjected to a ruler and a father who was able to take away all pride from me, and to bring me to the knowledge that it is possible for a man to live in a palace without wanting either guards or embroidered dresses, or torches and statues, and such-like show; but that it is in such a man's power to bring himself very near to the fashion of a private person, without being for this reason either meaner in thought, or more remiss in action, with respect to the things which must be done for the public interest in a manner that befits a ruler. I thank the gods for giving me such a brother, who was able by his moral character to rouse me to vigilance over myself, and who, at the same time, pleased me by his respect and affection; that my children have not been stupid nor deformed in body; that I did not make more proficiency in rhetoric, poetry, and the other studies, in which I should perhaps have been completely engaged, if I had seen that I was making progress in them; that I made haste to place those who brought me up in the station of honour, which they seemed to desire, without putting them off with hope of my doing it some time after, because they were then still young; that I knew Apollonius, Rusticus, Maximus; that I received clear and frequent impressions about living according to nature, and what kind of a life that is, so that, so far as depended on the gods, and their gifts, and help, and inspirations, nothing hindered me from forthwith living according to nature, though I still fall short of it through my own fault, and through not observing the admonitions of the gods, and, I may almost say, their direct instructions; that my body has held out so long in such a kind of life; that I never touched either Benedicta or Theodotus, and that, after having fallen into amatory passions, I was cured; and, though I was often out of humour with Rusticus, I never did anything of which I had occasion to repent; that, though it was my mother's fate to die young, she spent the last years of her life with me; that, whenever I wished to help any man in his need, or on any other occasion, I was never told that I had not the means of doing it; and that to myself the same necessity never happened, to receive anything from another; that I have such a wife, so obedient, and so affectionate, and so simple; that I had abundance of good masters for my children; and that remedies have been shown to me by dreams, both others, and against bloodspitting and giddiness...; and that, when I had an inclination to philosophy, I did not fall into the hands of any sophist, and that I did not waste my time on writers of histories, or in the resolution of syllogisms, or occupy myself about the investigation of appearances in the heavens; for all these things require the help of the gods and fortune.
Somebody did lol older Spanish couple. Saw this on one of the envelopes they handed me. Three envelopes but then I saw “tromp” well y’all helped them my a van lolI’m hoping now that people are getting their stimulus money that the phone will start to ring.
Since you brought that up . Was going to say something about that and then thought .......... maybe I shouldn’t .So not such a bumpy ride?
I read the same article ED...You are right,,,,the fact they are ok with letting some companies fold or be sold cheap is very very very telling......Since you brought that up . Was going to say something about that and then thought .......... maybe I shouldn’t .
Read through my news feed Friday morning and then the Wall St. Journal where I came upon an interview with Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway. At 96 Charlie has pretty much seen it all EXCEPT THIS SITUATION. Described it as a typhoon that has swept the world and the worst thing that could happen .
Said that corporations are “ frozen “ and the phones weren’t ringing off the hook looking for money because they can get it from the government cheaper . Said he didn’t see a “depression “ like the 1930 ‘s because the safety net is there ..... unemployment insurance etc. BUT a deep recession .
The question of “ what’s next ? ........ “ I don’t know “ .
That statement and the fact he made mention that Berkshire was ( my words ) “ willing to let some Berkshire companies go “ made me pause . Rob made mention in his video that he and his wife have already sat down and gone through “ the budget “ .
JMHO but that was a very wise thing to do and might be something to consider for you and yours .
All the Best , Ed

We have a major crisis on our hands. Bill Gates is a VERY SERIOUS threat to not just the world economy, but to world peace. He has been using a loophole that allows health organizations to appear to be government agencies but are not independent and have been actually controlled by Gates. You will see that 80% of the funding of WHO is not from governments, but from donations. Then you see that Gates is the largest donor after countries listed on their website. Behind the curtain, the WHO has been bullied and pushed around by Bill Gates according to various sources one who is even writing a book on the domination of the WHO by Gates.
