    I've never met the heavenly daddy and they haven't met him either so why not a simple "Good Luck?"

    They have a faith in something, others do not, and it brings them happiness. So let it rock and let it roll; I am happy for them.

    It's nearly over...thank goodness. My brainwashing began by my own family when I was an infant and small child. When I was in grammar school they began the day with the lord's prayer, pledge of allegiance etc. and on Monday's the teacher assigned bible verses to be memorized and recited to the class on Thursdays and Fridays. Let them rear up and try a round of that bullshit now.

    People are getting smart and as they do they realize they are not going to rise up from a grave, meet a ghost floating on a cloud, fly off to paradise to live forever while those who believe something else are burning and screaming in a pit of fire and brimstone.

    Sneezing is a sign of sickness, so we bless those that sneeze in hopes of their wellness. These days, sneezing is used as a reminder for us to tell those around us we care about them and want God to be with them.

    You may have noticed that many people do not say "God Bless You" but say "Bless You". This may be because of the religious differences between people and that it is much more politically correct by not distinguishing who is "blessing" you.

    It a good thing and not a bad thing. It does you no harm what so ever, to wish you to be well and not to become sick.
