    It is just but right that I will be the first one to post here. My very first post in brother eddie’s thread got a lot of response, mostly thumbs down. I have been called kampon ng demonyo, may maladiablong pag-iisip and the ANTICHRIST himself. There were also few encouraging comments like whiffs of fresh air. I never thought my initial view would spawn heated debates.

    So after all is said and done, to all ECV’s supporters, (esp. to jundp, janet, ryca, jason, kler, etc…), please find it in your heart to forgive me for all the troubles, heartache and sometimes biting remarks I posted regarding your beliefs in his candidacy. I was just standing for what I believe should be said of ECV’s running again. We disagree a lot, yes, but I guess it is now time to set our differences apart to usher in a new era in Philippine politics. And what better way than to start it amongst ourselves. Let us all just give our full moral, vigilant, and prayerful support to our new president. (This also goes to all who will read this comment). After all, “there is no authority except that which God established…Rom.13:1.”

    God bless us all. Peace!!!

    Thanks to you, too, wawam.

    WHEN PROPHECY FAILS AND FAITH PERSIST
    (by Lorne L. Dawson of Department of Sociology University of Waterloo)

    I cant help but to “use” this same title to describe what happened; as the result of this historic election continue to shed its lights of reality.
    It seems that the reality was “set-in” against the irrational faith-based, wishful thinking, unscientific, boastful, (even a “mythical” treat of sending people to hell!!! because of not supporting ECV) by the supporters of ECV.

    If any one will have an interest to read the study conducted by the sociologist i have mentioned above…he/she will understand how the “same acts and response” A CERTAIN GROUP or cult will do if a prophecy FAILED. (I AM QUITE sure that the “apologetic response will be the SAME” just as describe by the numerous studies conducted by sociologist and psychologist on the religious groups studied on the title above)

    Its a good thing to study RELIGION’S historicity and avoid its poisonous stings..

    to end my message..

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

    and

    “Religion is regarded by the COMMON people as true, by the WISE as false, and by the rulers as useful”. – Seneca the Younger ( It is quite applicable in the Philippines!!)

    TEMET NOSCE!!!

    from a small voice of mine against the vast religious ocean of my beloved country…

    Thank you Mr.wawam
