I've been interested in it for years though its always been discouraged.  My dad's a lawyer and hes worked a few types of law and has always warned me against it.  The problem with that is i grew up with it and i enjoy it.  Right now im acting as a paralegal but i think i might want to go into criminal defense along with some other fields, decided not to think about it too much until lawschool

They have to be taken as separate parts and styles of understanding the same reality.  Taken together they can create a cohesive picture of our reality.  The issue is that the idea of "faith" is thrown around in some odd ways.  The way i look at it all that is needed is faith in the remnants of instinct.  The knowledge that is already within us can be grasped.  The hints we get from it can be likened to the "word of god" or classical thoughts on the inspirational muses.  Art itself tries to convey something beyond the definition of words as the definition limits meaning.  It connects with empathy and the struggle between the two is very right brain left brain for me.  One defines to allow simple and understandable connection (left brain, mathematics and language centers) with the other is more abstract and visual (right brain).  People tend to have a style or inadvertently pick one or the other up.  From that point on it becomes rather difficult to see the other side as anything but irrational.

     I believe that there is knowledge within all of us that is ignored and it requires a certain mount of that faith to look at it.  That knowledge is interpreted in many different ways which is where i think much of religion comes from, especially shamanic tendencies. 

For the TL/DR version and because i have work in a few hours, i think that they have to be understood as balancing forces within the mind and taking either to an extreme is counterproductive.  So its not whether they can or cant work together, but that they have to work together to truly try to understand the world.

Why not try to go beyond even faith and reason?  Different ways of thinking completely.  One searches for truth beyond what is known consciously, while the other looks for solid information to create a known reality.  We use both everyday and the concepts of science and religion are those types of thought process at their most extremes thereby becoming polar opposites. Both have to be taken into account in order to form a clear view on our place in the world.

... at least in my opinion

Sleep deprivation can be entirely amusing. 

I do have to ask though, anything you remember she said about law school?

I'm not totally sure the last time i was actually on.  Had to be like a year ago.  Just remembered the board one day and started paying attention again.

My entire point is to see how many people we have up and viewing the board.  I want to revitalize this place.  The ghost town vibe is getting to me and i see some members quite literally collecting dust and cobwebs.  Other than BC Even!

Exactly the path i chose. Public defenders are a waste of time so i found a good attorney who cut me a deal so now i'm all lawyered up.

Touche Blue, as a common rule of thumb on the internet i respect that.  Though i do have pictures.

EDIT: Damn, i forgot to fully resize those.  And yea, shes great.  Picked my dumb ass up from drunk tank at 5 in the morning.

I like Firefox, though it had problems of its own.  I decided on picking up this slick new browser.  Its fast as hell but it has its quirks.

Yes Yes technicalities.  Though the majority of the American populace has no idea what the difference between Mescal and Tequila is.  Besides, enough of either and i will damn well guarantee that you or anyone surrounding you will care less which one it is.  They'll most likely be asking you to put your pants on while you will become enraged at the very word pants.  It will become the most dire enemy you've ever had.

...Yea, no sleep means great babbling and horrible grammar.

Which makes me think of Frasier. How long do you suppose a human being can go without sleep without permanent damage to their psyche?  Come on Hoopy O' master of knowledge, this is important stuff.

Some odd issues that the open intarnets have no idea how to fix.  I seem to have lost the ability to scroll with a mouse wheel in chrome as well as its inability to show the emoticons for messages in the Village.  Any ideas or personal experiences?

If anyone needs an exorcism or confessional, i am now legally a minister thanks to the wonders of the Universal Life Church.

Don't think about it, Don't dare try it.  Tequila is dangerous, the worms want us dead!  I've heard their whispers!
