So, I’ll paraphrase again “I know you are but what am I”.

I don’t think I need to retort that beauty.

same can be said of you, or any of us whose argument against religion is that there is no sensible explanation for it, as in, evidence that appeals to our senses.  Even science in fallible.  That doesn't mean that every time we use our senses we're wrong.

I disagree.  Obviously our senses can be tricked, but it's our use of human senses that make us atheists!

I did not send any articles.  My response came from personal experience using my own body and senses.

Anthony Medel,
The article you sent is published in a journal named "Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine," published by Hindawi Publishing Corporation. Not a reliable peer-reviewed journal. Can you send me its 'impact factor?' Its not difficult to find such articles in the web. But scientific validity requires independent verification and reproducibility among many things. I would be interested to know the 'impact factor' of that journal; a very important number to consider. These kinds of articles smell more like 'water has memory'-kind of articles. In case of 'water memory' it was published in the journal Nature! The authors never could reproduce the data, although the paper was never retracted! Peer-review is an important source but not the only factor.

I think there are far more instances of stress being bad for us than relaxation.  There's some nutty stuff going on in Japanese society, while many European nations give workers far more time off from work and they have far less social strife than we do.

 

Besides, it's the quality of life, not the length of it, that makes it worth living.  I'd rather have a shorter life being happier than a longer life being stressed and anxious!

Truthfully, I think relaxing is what’s bad for us sometimes. Look at Japan: the highest stress levels in the world mixed with the most amphetamine abuse – and they live longer than us.

I don't know if the attachment to my previous message worked; here is the link to the review article I mention. Hope this works.
