Buzz was a force to be reckoned with on EvC as much as many of us disagreed with his views and even reasoning. For his tenacity, many of us of respected him.
The barbs and jabs we give and take here at EvC remind me of the back and forth ribbing of coworkers and friends in my work in the armed services. Even though we may not always get along with people at work or even in our own families, in time of crisis we are there for each other. I feel the same with acquaintances on EvC.
We are all in a struggle as a human race whether religious or not and life is too short to get mad at each other for too long.
Buzz, I am saddened you will no longer be with us. May your soul find peace.

Thanks for posting this DA, (my ole arch nemesis) that is a beautiful and neutral quote that kinda bridges the gap between the opposing forces here at this website
Thanks Dawn (I like the arch nemesis part). I don't consider anyone here my enemy, ideological and philosophical adversaries maybe, enemies definately not . Life is too short to have enemies (except mass murderers, terrorist and hard core criminals). I only see people like Buz and others of like minds; souls fervently dedicated to their religious beliefs. Discussions, debates and the like on this forum are just ways for us to dig into the reality around us and to explore deep and ageless questions of humanity of why we are here and what caused the universe that exists around us. I believe we are all part of a brotherhood (and if you prefer sisterhood) of humanity seeking these answers; Buzz included. Just my thoughts.
BTW, I am not anti-religion, just pro-rationality. In honesty, I think religion and science can coexist as long as it is done logically and rationally. Take care.
