Just a test to see what "Quick Reply" does.

 

 

 

OK. I got some if it figured out. Now I can't delete some of these test posts.

To the board administrator:

 

Is there any way to make a reply to another post and have it (the reply) posted directly attached to the subject post? Fore instance, I replyied to "johninnevada" but my post is no where near his post.

 

While we're at it, is there any way to read the posts in chronological order rather than in reverse (newest first)? It makes no sense when reading a reply to a post before reading the subject post first.

"This means that a decision should not be made to keep us alive with machines." Does this also include no antibiotics for infections? How about tourniquets or pressure bandages for bleeding? Artificial respiration for drowning? Any lifesaving techniques in any situation or disease?

 

Did "God" not also give us a brain? Does "He" not expect us to use it?

 

I believe that we should use our brains to make living and dying decisions whenever we are able.

Yes. 

Each person should have a Right to Choose.  It is part of our basic freedoms.

I truly believe this should not be a person"s decicision. Nor should it be anyome's elses. It is GOD's decision when our life should end.

 

This means that a decision should not be made to keep us alive with machines. No one except for God, has any right to make this decision and least of all it is a Doctors right to decide. 

 

In case you are wondering I am 84 years old and having a great Marriage and a Great life. I am very active and in fact I still work 2 8 hour shifts every week and I an not ready to die but whern the time comes I feel I will be ready,

 

If you Believe in God, you are ready to enter into your futire life in Heaven.
