    Instant coffee cosmology?

    I avidly avoid instant coffee. Drinking that stuff will make people imagine a coffee rim universe. If it ain't brewed coffee then it ain't coffee.

    Stalin has been credited as remarking, "The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

    Haven't heard it especially, but the rhetoric here in Seattle is one of war.

  6. I have yet to see any evidence given for some...

    How can you be asking “how” we believe what we do
    and
    at the same time assert that no NEW evidence has been provided?

    Because that infers that evidence and reason has been provided to you. The...

    More than unlikely. Pure logic dictates that most are definitely false since different faiths are mutually exclusive so if one were true then the others must be false. The question is if any one of...

    More special pleading? Or maybe, as you would put...

    "Evidence from the time" is that the Caesars were gods, testified to be so by the educated, literate, and known members of the Roman senate.

    Aha, got it. So you are subscribing to last Tuesdayism. I guess it makes as much sense as the YEC belief.

    I think you got that bass-ackward.

    The universe reliably acts the way it does. The 'laws of physics' only faithfully describes what the universe does. The 'laws of physics' does not dictate to...

    True. The only sciences I am aware of that even address the question of gods would be the 'soft sciences' of phycology and sociology. Even then, they wouldn't be addressing the existence of the...

    can you name three examples? Where a hypothesis made it all the way to theory, and you can show the LOGIC errors that indicate it's in error?

    I believe you misinterpreted. It's not about finding men who can support them, it's about men who are more successful than them. There's a big difference. The reasoning behind this is that women are...

    So you disagree with the jury system. You'd have the City Council, or State Legislature, hear all the cases and decide guilt/innocence, because having the average people (juries) decide it is worse...
