To all this is not a place to chuck insults small or big to each other. Feel free to put forward thoughts and opinions but not take small jabs at each other.

My apologies. I try not to do such things, but nobody's perfect. I'll try to control myself. :oops:

Well, that's what forums are for. Debate, to an extent, is fine. It'll help people understand the views of others and perhaps even open their mind a little. What Peter is talking about is the little feud between me and rdc-something. It got a little out of hand, but it won't happen again.

I did see it and i was only thanking Ty8200 and accepting his apology. Now for your discussion topic...sure i'm full of them. How's euthanasia for a topic and how it applies to religion? I'm a believer that the hippocratic oath has taken over our lives. Since most religion will not allow someone to end their own life, the doctors choose to prolong it. My belief is that they honestly mean well, but who wants to find grandpa with his head on the wall because he didn't want to go to hospice. I think voluntary euthanasia should be allowed, but should be regulated. Sometimes people live too long. My grandmother has alzheimers and has had it for 15 years. Rarely is she seen by any family b/c she just doesn't know anyone. Does anybody here believe the soul is still there? I wonder sometimes if those types of people are more like animals at that point. Enjoy the new thread. 8-)

It's my opinion that one should determine the outcome of their life, so if they want to end it thats fine with me.
