    I suppose I did have one guy friend in college who I would hang out with a lot….we never fucked or even kissed. He got a girlfriend and married her. I never once thought about sleeping with him. No matter how drunk I got.

    True love is to be found only in a healthy parent/child relationship and in the relationship between true friends.

    But can men and women ever truly be “just friends?”…

    @Reg but even moreso, it has an air of entitlement attached to it, with the presumption that “If god existed he should do ___________(insert your Christmas list here) sort of mentality. As if we know exactly what God SHOULD do….No? Well then he mustn’t exist. I find that sort of argument full of entitlements and ultimately flawed.

    @Reg

    We would be interested to know what  you think the main errors are with the argument and why you deem it vacuous?

    It’s the equivalent of a two year old pitching a fit because they didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas. It begins with the presumption that I (single human) know what the best thing is for myself and the universe and if (said) outcome is not orchestrated to my liking then God must be an evil asshole. That’s really what that whole argument boils down to in brass tax imho. It begins with too many presumptions that just are not based in reality.

    No Ivy the problem of evil was not part of the deconstruction of your premonition.  I brought it up late because you said we will be extinct in 30 years.

    Yes because we are stupid idiots and are ruining the planet beyond reparable recognition!

    @Reg they are planning to return him to his old position but he’ll always be back up for mine and likely he will still do early morning shift at least until I get there or until the other girl comes in…..

    @robert I like your philosophy. I was told to just keep my mouth shut and do my job by a mentor of mine and that’s probably best. If I report him it will backfire on me

    I already did bring it up and my manager had a word with him. Nothing improved and in many ways it’s gotten worse. He isn’t teaching me anything new or helping me in any way. He doesn’t talk to me. The political rants are in front of me towards other people. I’m afraid if I raise a fuss about it it will only come back on me.

    Hmm. I know there are some possibilities lying in between there but, in all honestly is anyone taking this seriously anyways?

    The premise of that ENTIRE argument that has been rehashed several times in several different ways something to the effect of, “If God is so loving then why does he condone any sort of suffering….” argument, I personally have found that argument to be empty and full of error. That’s why that particular stance just wasn’t sufficient to even begin to answer the actual question I was asking. It was more of a duck and evade sort of response IMHO.

    It’s a HUGE company, but my area is small and isolated (3 people)….they have had talks with him about these things but it doesn’t seem to phase him at all.

    Yes because the function of this discussion was to get, maybe even just one person, to help you confirm your biases and to roll the eyes at all the rational comments coming in.

    No, The function of this discussion was to see if there would be an alternative point of view that made sense to me. I did not find any that I could take seriously based on my own situation. That’s all. You make a lot of assumptions about me and they’re wrong.

    Do you really want the dick’s position, and are you confident you’re being groomed for it and not just being played?

    I almost quit. And the manager told me I was intended to be his replacement. But the problem is I think they are going to have him come in still early mornings til I get there since I can’t come in that early. Being played? I don’t know honestly…..it’s hard to tell.

    In any case it sounds like you’re assuming he’s on his way out?

    They plan to move him to a different position within the company….Problem is my son has been sick, I’ve had to miss work, who knows. I may be the one on the way out….we’ll see….
