    "I have read the Torah, the New Testament, and the Qur'an many times over and the overarching impression I get is that while the New Testament presents a kind, loving God, both the Torah and Qur'an present a very, very different God- to the point where I think they're describing a different God altogether. Inasmuch as that may be, I don't believe in the divinity of Jesus for one minute so that pretty much puts me outside the bounds of any brand of Christianity."

    Did you just read them without praying about it? Looks like you did not practice faith.

    Well, according to Wikipedia I should be dead for a while.
    I'm 83, full of life and full of dreams. 4 generations are around me, that keeps me going.
    I go to bed around 11 and get up around 7. Have some light breakfast. Within an hour, the toilet is calling me, that is of utmost importance. Get rid of whatever I ate the day before, don't collect in your body.
    I do not eat industrialized food, now and then I might have some fast food if my wife of 79 decides not to cook. I keep going all day tending a garden full of vegetables and fruit. I hop on my tractor and do some grading here and there. I moved last year to another house in another State in the Countryside, have about 4 acres to take care of. I just finished building a gazebo.
    I'm 5.10 and weigh 115Lbs. I try to gain some weight for years, my doctor says stay the way you are. All my medical test results are within range and I don't take any drugs or supplements.
    So whats wrong with me? My eyesight is controlled with glasses, my weak hearing is fixed with hearing aids, I only wear them in public. My upper teeth fell out one by one past 80, I wear snap/fixed dentures that are perfect, I don't even notice that they are there. I have some back pains in the morning when I get up, they disappear after I start moving. Do I forget where my keys are? Of course, no big deal.
    I set my next goal to 85.
    I believe we are what we eat. I also believe in GOD that gives me hope..........
    Hang in there..........

    "If you don't get it, you must be doing it wrong"? Really?
