"The greatest part of mankind want leisure or capacity for demonstration, nor can carry a train of proofs, which in that way they must always depend upon for conviction, and cannot be required to assent to till they see the demonstration. Wherever they stick, the teachers are always put upon proof, and must clear the doubt by a thread of coherent deductions from the first principle, how long or how intricate soever that be. And you may as soon hope to leave all the day labourers and tradesmen, the spinsters and dairy-maids, perfect mathematicians, as to have them perfect in ethics this way: having plain commands is the sure and only course to bring them to obedience and practice: the greatest part cannot know, and therefore they must believe. And I ask, whether one coming from heaven in the power of God, in full and clear evidence and demonstration of miracles, giving plain and direct rules of morality and obedience, be not likelier to enlighten the bulk of mankind, and set them right in their duties, and bring them to do them, than by reasoning with them from general notions and principles of human reason? And were all the Duties of Humane Life clearly demonstrated; yet I conclude, when well considered, that Method of teaching men their Duties, would be thought proper only for a few, who had much Leisure, improved Understandings, and were used to abstract Reasonings. But the Instruction of the People were best still to be left to the Precepts and Principles of the Gospel."
"O you possessed of sturdy intellects, observe the teaching that is hidden here
beneath the veil of verses so obscure".

Hello I'm John and I live in Florida and work in the technology/online education environment. My main interests are in the Psychology, Technology, and Education areas. I am somewhat of a Unix/Linux nerd who also enjoys all areas of problem solving. I often involve myself in extraordinary projects that sometimes do not interest others. My creative side has a genuine appreciation for all disciplines of art and music. Most types of humor I can appreciate and I am not easily offended. My wit can be sharp as well given the right opportunity.

je suis coupable
et ce n'est pas ce que j'ai dit
c'est l'interprétation qu'ils en ont fait
ils se protègent en se projetant
ils ne sont responsables de rien
incapables de se reconnaître
ils agissent comme des traîtres
la solution n'est pas la pendaison
ils changeront simplement de nom
au pouvoir des impuissants
les fruits amers des fausses constitutions
bâtissant de magnifiques châteaux de cartes
qu'ils appellent pays et nations
ce qu'ils disent et ce qu'ils font
il n'y a là que des contradictions
ils se croient importants
mais qu'en est-il vraiment
la violence se répand
les sages se cachent rien d'étonnant
un système d'éducation plus que suspect
rond rond petit patapon
les gouvernements s'applaudissent
les jeunes savent maintenant comment gagner leur pain
en volant les fruits du travail de leurs prochains
nul ne peut ignorer la loi
mais que nous enseigne-t-on
ils ne savent rien
et ne veulent rien écouter
ils sont devenus des atomes
fruit de l'ignorance et des suppositions
l'aboutissement de la pensée grecque
l'aboutissement d'une approximation
ils portent de beaux habits
avec leurs souliers de cuir tout polis
ils cherchent la gloire
les honneurs et l'argent
avec leur blanc sourire
plus noir que noir
des paroles remplies de vide
une image parfaite
un intérieur sans vie
j'aime et je respecte mon prochain
c'est leur refrain
je vole mon prochain
voilà comment ils gagnent réellement leur pain
ils disent croire
mais ne croient en rien
les cochons ont tué le fermier
liberté égalité fraternité
que pour eux
pour nous absolument rien
une nouvelle société d'injustices
un système de justice pour les riches
un système monétaire pour les riches
un système politique pour les riches
à quand la fin des gras cochons
à quand la fin de cette honte
cette société n'est que mensonges
nous y vivons comme des étrangers

Nancy Louise Gustafson Barker
Hello Fellow Ilians,
All of you here look like interesting people, and I'm sure those who don't have photos here are equally so. if we have things in common, it would be nice to discover that. To do so, I'll tell a little about myself. For me, The most important quality in others is a good sense of humor. Mine has been tarnished from over two years of fighting brokerage fraud, which has taken lots of time, and involved the IRS -- not fun.
I worked a lot of jobs before retiring early to run a home business. These included fashion salesclerk (at 15), bridal consultant, car hop, seventh-grade teacher, editorial cartoonist and staff writer for a weekly newspaper, free-lance writer, writing tutor. GED teacher, college academic adviser and now a writer/editor and graphic designer for my business, Expresso DTP (Desktop Publishing).
No matter what else is going on and even if I have no spare time, I listen to jazz (sometimes classical too) almost all the time, on KMHD FM, Gresham, Oregon or on my CDs or vinyl. When I have time, I like to read almost anything, especially mysteries, do Sudoku and crossword puzzles, go dancing, do yoga, watch movies, listen to live music -- mostly jazz, blues and classical and watch interesting films. I'm a Portland Trail Blazer fan and a loyal UW Huskies alum. This year it really is "Bow Down to Washington!" in football. I hope it'll be the same in basketball.
Besides Intertel, I belong to Mensa and Triple Nine. I'm interested in investing, old books, fashion, bargain shopping, my Swedish heritage (I've had my DNA done at 23andme). I am curious about almost everything. I have a Ragdoll, Vinnie, who is far too bossy. I would like to learn how to play Scrabble online, how to start a blog and/or how to be a better investor. -- and maybe how to fish. I REALLY want a piano to play again, but have no room, so need to move.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have similar interests: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nancy Louise Gustafson Barker (I kept my ex's name for our son's sake, but may drop it -- meantime, it's my legal name.)
James Paul Beaulieu
Vic is a blue collar kind of guy. Retired Postal Letter Carrier, and US Navy veteran, currently living in Florida with my high school sweetheart and wife of 40 years. Interests include reading, exercise and nutrition, motorcycling, RVing, Ham Radio, radios, jukeboxes and more. I've recently given up my motorcycle riding of 50 years.

Albin Nino Beharovic
Tony (A.K.A. Antonio) Belarmino
I was born in Biddeford, Maine on 21 August 1943 and moved to Sacramento when I was three months old. I have been married to Judy since 25 May 1968, and our daughter, Michelle, was born in 1971. We now live in Turlock, CA.
I have been out of a job since June of 2011 and life is good. I have been an Assemblies of God minister since 1973 and am an on-call crisis chaplain with our denomination's Disaster Response Task Force.
I was separated from the Navy, after 4 ½ years, as a Radarman Second Class.
Some people have paid me for stringing a few words together and I currently have a contract to provide op/ed pieces to the Modesto Bee as a Community Columnist. I like to take pictures and some are displayed around my house and after I die, they might be worth something. I have several tools in my garage that I use to create wood shavings for the smoker tray in my grill. Some of my retirement money goes to finance short term mission trips. I like baseball and have been an Oakland A's fan since 1968.
In 1986 I realized I was smart and joined Mensa. I also qualified for Intertel and 28 years later finally followed up on that qualification because of some low key encouragement from a fellow Mensan. I am the coordinator of the Clergy SIG.

One of my degrees was in music, which I still love. I volunteer each month for the local animal shelter's 2-day free and low cost spay and neuter clinic. I have been Regent of the local chapter of the DAR three times, along with holding some other local offices. I'm District Calendar Editor for the Smoky Mountain Mensa monthly bulletin. I live in the country, after having grown up in towns and cities, but I really do like it!

Cassandra 'Casey' Collier
I love to hear life stories of all the people out there. And learn about the reasons they don't live the way they really want to. The result of this passion is a foundation named millionways that wants to bring "potentialism" to the world - everyone should do what he or she really loves. In my heart I'm a drummer and I wrote a book about "potentialism", unfortunately only in German so far. Everyone who's interested can contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org - my curiosity is endless :-)

The GLID: To Thirst for Truth is to Hunger for Knowledge
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--William Ernest Henley
