Oh and speaking of liturgy, if you hate kids communicating, you must REALLY dislike Liturgy.  

I haven't written that.

Do you really think that you don't experience life fuller now, than you did as a 0.5-year-old?

And, from the start: what is "age" in this context?

I'm really not sure how to answer that first question.  Obviously my UNDERSTANDING is greater, but is my experience fuller?  Depends on what you mean by fuller.  I know I wish I had the exuberance and the faithful trust that children do, or the complete hope they have.  Their experience of life is Extremely complete.  Every day is a full adventure.  

Is it the Same thing or "as complete" as an adult, I'm not sure.  We'd have to agree on terms to decide that, and probably deserves its own thread

Oh, and Christ commanded us to be like them...so they can't be all that bad.  He never told us to be like adults...that I can remember

Axios!  Axios!  Axios!!!!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
