  1. Iran doesn't do this without Trumpo pulling out...

    More mindless chatter about Trump.

    You guys can spin and dream away if you want. But in the final analysis, nobody has started another crappy and expensive war right now. Not yet. And thats a...

    So when someone claims to believe in a god, goes to church, prays, invokes their god at funerals and weddings, teaches their children about their god, listens to experts who claim to know things...

    This conversation seems to have demonstrated - Thank-you Half-Life - that the actual myth is that persons actually believe in a god. A person may say as much but the reality based upon their...

    How is a belief not a physical arrangement in the brain? How is anything "mental" not a physical arrangement in the brain? Behavior doesn't even need a brain to be behavior.

    I'm nit picking I...

    Trump has gone from despising SA to being their chums. One really has to wonder if he has any idea what he's doing, particularly in light of his revolving-door cabinet.

    My take is that short of...
  6. Poll: Agreed again. The "local" model still stands. ...

    Absolutely correct. Humans will adapt. Rising sea levels and higher global temperatures will cause millions to move or die. What will be the costs? Most likely the same historical pattern will...
  7. Trump is after personal enrichment. The Saudis...

    Trump is after personal enrichment. The Saudis are providing his business brand with lots of money. This conflict of interests is only too obvious, as evidenced by his own campaign rhetoric from...
  8. Nothing I have seen convinces me that Iran did...

    Nothing I have seen convinces me that Iran did this. If Iran did this I want to see evidence that Iran did this. Is that too much to ask? This isn't Pearl Harbor, it's more like the Maine or the...

    This is what most people do not get, I suppose because they cannot comprehend the planet being a single locality like a city or state or the Amazon, only larger but still finite.[/QUOTE]

    This is what most people do not get, I suppose because they cannot comprehend the planet being a single locality like a city or state or the Amazon, only larger but still finite.
  11. If eighteen cruise missiles hit refineries in...

    If eighteen cruise missiles hit refineries in Houston you'd think we'd be able to figure out where they came from and at least see them visually or with radar before they hit. What's different about...
  12. Poll: Not much disagreement. We've certainly done...

    What do you mean here?[/QUOTE]

    It's hard to answer and be concise, but my point is that many of us suffer from the illusion that our history is intentional, and directional, and that there are...
  13. That's all well said, but most of the people on...

    That's all well said, but most of the people on the planet still act as if war and aggression and inequality are all quite reasonable. We kill to stay alive, just like any other animal. Our...

    Maybe at some point we will use brain imaging to know when a person is sincere and when they are fibbing.

    Standard theistic belief is not rational so it's obviously an evolved behavior that had...

    One who does not believe in the existence of any god.
    My observation is that almost no one I have ever met, or read, or heard about, believes in the existence of any god.
    Many people say things or...

  17. Poll: For all of its existence the human species has...

    For all of its existence the human species has simply gone about things as if the planet and its resources were infinite, that if something depleted locally we could get more somewhere else. There...

    The gatherings sound more like cult gatherings than clubs. I didn't see much objectivism.
  19. Maybe I'm missing something but SA would probably...

    Maybe I'm missing something but SA would probably allow Trump and Co. to build towers in the kingdom, and that's good for America. Plus we get to sell them lots of bombs and spend lots of money...

    The Saudis couldn't keep a plane in the air if their lives depended on it. They simply pay western contractors to do all their work while they pretend how important they are. If we quit helping the...

    I read the article. Once the ringleader was convicted people seemed to recover their sanity.

    Also of note was that none of the quotes used to demonize the texts were ever actually in any of the...

    Which demonstrates to me quite convincingly that the only evidence any person has for a god is their emotions. All god claims reduce to personal emotional attachment.
