    The fact that a believer may be happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than that a drunken man may be happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality. George Bernard Shaw

    What if I were to tell you these four individuals were from the day 1 of their existence already prepared to return to the Lord on High?

    That their intellect, and strength of how they have built their lives and those who trust them, were preCisely why these specific individuals had such a "wake up call"?

    This is fact whether you accept it or not.

    Nice post, J
