    A quote

    "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."
    Albert Einstein

    (Think about this before you "shoot someone down" with your "reply" to a future post, comment or reply.)

    Does anyone know where the love of God goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

    Are we supposed to list the three women we'd want to be shipwrecked with now?

    No, I think the OP was trying to say there's no evidence of truth, knowledge, or gods here on BF...

    I'm not against Einstein, or your message. Just wondering--why the word "reply" is in quotes?

    The existence of a quote by Albert Einstein doesn't eliminate the possibility that you are wrong.

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Sorry folks, My post is in reference to those who post or reply to posts/comments that are negatively judgmental to other peoples’ opinions, bike fits and set- ups, ways of doing things etc.

    I don't think I like your tone. Are you mad because you're wrong most of the time?

    Love it when people judge other people for being judgemental. Urging tolerance while doing the opposite.

    Oh, damn, there I go being judgemental again! See what you made me do?!?!?
