Why do theists and atheists insist that if there is a God that it created the universe?
Is this intended as a sociological, psychological, theological, ontological, or history of ideas question?

Re: Living High on the Hog

It's good to point the finger at evil. However it's not true to say small frugal people are wrong because some of our allies are wrong. It's true that power corrupts, but it's not a good enough reason to give up. Each religion has specific, action-based observances to activate virtuous feelings in ...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

Walker, you are not good at estimating risks. I'd not be advised by you if I wanted to put a bet on a horse. Fact is, never had a car wreck and spent a good chunk of time working in literal high places where a misstep could cause serious injury and death. Early on went for years without health insu...

Lacewing, how might human cultures of belief get up to speed? Religions as they are are useless or worse than useless.

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

Yes, the problem is man made climate change. So? Climate is a thing that changes. The question is to what degree human activity contributes to that. But we are never going to have a static climate. And I often think that this would be the only thing that would satisfy the Green movement. I am not t...

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

The term “climate denier” is simply a bastardization of the language.
It’s a bumper sticker.
I suppose it is. What do people like you want to be called?

I'd control climate change deniers if I could but I cannot. I can do nothing but my own little mitigation, and that I can control.

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

What might " negative emotions" be? Talk of negative emotions makes no more sense than talk of negative heart beats.
The only comment I could make is that if the doctor pronounced "emotions negative" the patient would be either dead or moribund.
