    Are you a nurse with "alternative" spiritual beliefs?

    My opinions are based on my observation about how we know the universe works (what we know up until now). Religious text have valid teachings about human behaviors and arguably morality (good and bad) but no matter how much anyone tries, much of is not consistent with reality as we know. A god that is supposed to be perfect cannot by definition have written that piece of work. Am I wrong? Well that's irrelevant as it is an opinion and belief on my part.

    [quote=Lev Are you saying there's other eyes aside from man on these matters? If so, what's your evidence?A plausible explanation about people thousands of years ago is that they invented a god/gods to fill gaps in knowledge. I hypothesize that in 2000 years we may see Jehovah the same way we see Zeus and Thor today. Sadly we may have another God, perhaps a character of our current fiction such as Superman or Iron Man. There's no way for us to know the intent by those who wrote the bible but we can confidently say it is fiction if we apply the laws of physics and basic science

    The problem I have is that you can assign arbitrary meaning to any text bible or scientific that's why I tend to favor science and the scientific process. Also, just because billions believe something to be true, it doesn't make it so. I'm open minded but when people cherry pick and assign meaning where there's none I get skeptical. I will remain respectful here as I'm truly looking to engage in conversation rather than insult anyone

    Yes you could say that and I respect your opinion. What's more plausible though? Talking snakes and miracles or natural processes and scientific explanations? :)

    Like the first comment after the article stated: "The clinical diagnosis of schizophrenia and various other psychoses involves a number of salient factors and symptoms that if demonstrated to hold indicate psychopathology. These include delusions of reference (being referred to by or referring to people or conscious beings that do not exist), auditory and visual hallucinations (including the belief in witnessing miracles and heaing the voices of a god or gods in some way), and general paranoia: including being concerned about being watched or believing one is being watched often. Especially if a person believes they are always being watched." I do see valid points on the rest.

    Thanks for sharing the link, It actually made some good points, except for number 1. I specifically like the 1st comment after the article.

    nursing eating young

    Nurses in general do not eat their young, SOME nurses do, but that is more an individual personality trait vs a nursing trait.

    I believe god is a man made concept created out of a human necessity to fill gaps in knowledge. My comments are not meant to insult anyone, they are merely the irrelevant opinion of someone on the Internet so take it for what is worth.

    But Esme what the OP described was a clear personal attack. I'm disappointed you don't acknowledge that.

    My coworker is stealing

    I understand but what the OP described is far from obvious "abuse". Clearly you know the difference between diverting meds for example and someone a little disorganized (at best) causing that person to stay over time. The OP didn't even know that any wrong doing was even happening. All I'm saying is that we do not have enough evidence to advice anyone to disrupt someone's life over her perceived abuse.

    Yet another insult to the OP by the same people who cry foul every time a different opinion is offered. The OP never said her son asked her to post anything. The OP is a mom that is concerned about her son and his academic future. How easy it is for many here to criticize. Seems like the same elitist few, wouldn't be surprised if the reason they flame the OP is because it makes them feel better about themselves.

    Funny to see these "crusty old bats" give their nasty hearted opinions and ill advice while at the same time crying foul when other give theirs and they don't agree.

    Mantra?... Whats yours??...

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish. - Unknown

    Way to kick someone when they are down. OP, the simple answer is, tell your son to try again, go for LPN then bridge to RN. Pay no attention to the elitist comments here.
