Well the transit union today got a offer from the Halifax Regional Municipality the offer looks good. The transit union in my opinion is just greedy wanting more and more money. Its not fair to the people of Halifax to rely on transit buses to get from place to place. Here in Pictou County we used to have transit here but that was taken away. Now, the same thing is happening in Halifax.
Halifax Mayor Peter Kelly again rejected any idea of sending the contract dispute to binding arbitration. Here's what he said:
"Taxpayers can't bear much more than we've already offered them. No more than we already offered. We thought what we offered was more than fair," Kelly told reporters Friday afternoon.
Does the Transit Union care about the taxpayers of Halifax it certainly doesn't look like it. It's sad really it had to go like this. I know their are some people in Halifax who support the Transit Union's decision I really don't know how they could.
Questions racing around my head for awhile now one is Is the Afterlife to good to be true?. I mean as you know a lot of things we as kids that we used to believe in turned out to be to good to be true. Now I would say this is a strong argument even though the evidence I think for an afterlife is very strong I still got that feeling it maybe to good to be true as well. I don't know, even though also had many experiences too with the paranormal I still go back and forth and that echo comes in that it maybe to good to be true.
Another strong argument it seems the skeptics have is why do we think along with all other life forms that we deserve to continue forever in an afterlife? I mean we humans along with other life forms use resources such as water etc. We are given this planet to live on, why do we expect more?. I know the evidence is very strong for an afterlife but these questions wrestle me a lot.
So your wondering why are these challenging questions, well for the reasons I gave above for example the fact that many of things when we were kids turned out to be false. We clearly obviously need to keep an open mind and no jump the gun. Rather, its fully thinking death is the end without investigating the apparent evidence for an afterlife first. Because, if you don't then you obviously can't make a fair judgement on the matter.
So can these questions be answered I would say yes of course they can. Can the overwhelming evidence for an afterlife overrun these questions? By showing that the questions themselves are answered by the evidence itself?. For sure their were some psychical researchers who remained on the fence about the survival of consciousness after death but one by one they came to concede to the evidence. That is the evidence is very strong for an afterlife and we must follow where the evidence leads us.
Anyways, I like to end this post by wishing everyone a happy Valentine's day.
Heard the sad news like everyone else that the singer Whitney Houston passed away recently. Will see you on the otherside, it's sad to had to leave so soon. I remember many of your songs like I will always love you and I wanna dance with somebody. You will be be forever remembered for all you done in the music industry and all the lives you have touched with your music.
Well good news at least I think it is.The downtown book exchange is located in downtown New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. I have been in that store before and the prices for their movies and books is outrageous. Everything in the store is overpriced, and I am happy that they are being sold.
