    I KNOW that it won't be the uberest most happiest ending every but J.K. really REALLY seems to be excited about writing this last book so I am almost positive that the ending will be good. And I agree that 'he' will somehow return.

    There is nothing wrong with fantasy, sci-fi, magic or the imagination. It's when people try to take it up as a lifestyle (New-Agers) that it becomes a problem. I find it funny that certain people can't resist throwing a jab when it is not needed. You need to truley examine yourself and weed out your hate.

    Ummm... Ozzy wasn't making jokes. There is lots of magic in the bible. Did you mean to quote me instead? I'm the only jab-taker here.


    Most "new-agers" don't practice witchcraft. You're thinking of Wiccans. "new-age" Is a hodgepodge of spiritualism. Yoga, astrology, meditation, Chakras, Astral Projection, crystals, etc. etc. Pretty unorganized. I've met many and to me they are all harmless hippies really. Even my friend mother runs a magic store (she's Wiccan). They are all very nice, honest people. Wicca even has a "rule of three" that discourages malicious magic.

    I don't believe in magic. I think it's imaginary and if there are any results I'd like to see them, but It's harmless.

    No there won't be any debate. I will close this with the following. The "magic" in the Bible is not magic but God's doing.


    The "magic" you are talking about can be found here:

    If the "hate" comment was meant for me, then I have to say that I hates very few people. I don't like closed minded people, but I don't hate them. And you have to admit that there are quite a few closed minded Christians. Almost any group has closed minded people. And I'm not calling you closed minded either. You seem very open to discussions. You state your side, and then go on your way. I respect that.
    What I said was a joke. It was a joke on the closed minded Christians that tell people how evil Harry potter is without ever reading a book or seeing the movie.

    Hey I'll be up your way Feb 20th, that offer still stands for lunch.

    Outsiders, same here. Lol, lots of Christians love the HP books and don't give a hoot about what other people do. Then some Christians think the books are evil for simply having magic in them. I wasn't making fun of anyone but the second group.

    We all know the bible says magic is bad, but please remember that if you're not a Christian then you don't have to follow those rules. You can be a good person and believe in "magic" if you want, no matter how dumb it is( to me ,but may be very real to the next person and power to them!)

    And you can say something about it being god's laws and you'll go to hell or something like that, and it's totally cool that you think that-no problems here, but what does it really matter? I mean... no disrespect intended, but so what? If someone wants to believe in magic spells and sorcery and all that, they aren't hurting me or you are they? They are a small minority.



    Outsiders, we may disagree on... everything, and sure you ruffle my feathers but I do believe that you are a good person and you do/say/vote for what you think it the best. All you can do is do what you want and what you think you should, and as long as you're happy with your religion and you decide to live for your God then that's coolio. Believe it or not, I don't hate you lol. Nor do I dislike you. I just dislike your ideology but I won't try to change it if you don't try to change mine. We both want everyone to be happy, but we have different ideas on how people should be happy. You want people to follow God and live "righteously" and I want people to do whatever they want as long as it doesn't directly harm another. I put the word righteously into quotes, not to intend disrespect, but to instead put emphases on how our ideas of that differ. You may think one thing about my lifestyle. You may think that it is one of sin and hedonism and excess, but that's fine with me. I've learned through much persecution by so-called Christians to not care what others think, and to just be. If I make another joke and it bothers or offends you, Pm me and we can talk and if you are still offended then I'll gladly remove it. Would you like be to remove it now? Just say the word.


    Whew. Lol. I must be in a particularly good mood today. Maybe because Obama and Hilary have decided to run in '08? JUST pushing your buttons lol
