The Map vs. The Search

The previous owners of this house left me a map that shows in my back yard is a large box piled full of golden bricks. In this box is supposed wealth of worlds. I have security and peace in my great blessing of the box. There are those among us who would frame that map and place it above our mantles and blaspheme those who would question its esoteric clues that lead to the security and balance of our dear world. I am not one of those people. I am a skeptic by nature and the map only has value in so much as it leads to the box. In order to decipher the clues to find the box I have to question the creation of the map. Who are the authors? Why would they bury this? I have to question and search because my faith in the map does not equal the gold actually being real. I search not to defend or disprove the map but to find the truth of the box. I believe in the search for the truth because if I am not actively seeking the truth I maybe passively be accepting a lie. I tell you honestly that the search has value that turning over the stones is so rewarding that it drowns out the cries of your neighbors yelling, "what the hell are you doing out there."

Anyone else have a shovel, some gloves and a desire to get dirty with me?

If I only had time and a plane ticket. Might want to try a metal detector first. Don't forget to call before you dig, wouldn't want to hear " Young man searching for treasure in backyard electricuted. Found burned, naked holding a shovel and work gloves". Good Luck ( even though I don't believe in luck, but what can I say?)

U busy Sunday? (lol) Nice job with this one - I'm assuming there's no map and box, just a lil something you cooked up to make the minds ponder. If my assumption makes an ass out of you and me nevermind that and I'll be right over with my shovel. I love Gooooold!

You are a skeptic by nature? But are you sufficiently secure to be skeptical about your own skepticism?

Being a bit skeptical myself, I have to wonder why the owner's left you the map. Why didn't they just dig up the gold themselves? Or, maybe they did dig up the gold themselves and the map will lead you to an empty box with a note in it that reads: SUCKA! :)

NICE entry man. I love the religious over tones.

Keep searching for the box, I will help you all I can, but I am afraid to tell you (aas you well know) there is currently NO evidence that the box exists.
