Re: do people choose their religion?

Yes, anyone who thinks god can chose is risible. You are actually right, whether gods or god exist or not. If they don't exist, obviously. If they exist, with the qualities associated with him in western culture, then it's also impossible for god to have a free will and an ability to choose. There ...

Laugh of the week
So... you are saying, Sculptor, that Jews are the laughing stock of humanity.
Yes, anyone who thinks god can chose is risible.
And there is one Jew that would agree with me; Baruch Spinoza.
here's another agreeable Jew to join the laughing chorus: Jesus the Christ.

Re: What accounts for Western high death rates?

Going back to topic, after a healthy helping of thrashing Sculptor: I remember early reports (February? March?) which said that the virus dies in hot air. They did not specify the temperature. All countries in the article listed with high mortality rates are in the so-called temperate climate zone. ...

Re: What accounts for Western high death rates?

I can only suggest you post on another thread. What's wrong? Feeling challenged - Y don't you go blind with Veg also like you stated you did with Skepdick - oooh put people on ignore because your sculpted mind might fracture. Off topic talk about off topic -- it's your ego that is off topic, Sculpt...

Re: What accounts for Western high death rates?

is demographical distribution given with the death rate statistics? Because in my country (Western country, highly developed) most of the dead to date occurred in old folk homes where the conditions were deplorable, inhumane, horrible. I don't think there are many old people (of age 85 and above) in...

Some countries with low death rates. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/05/curious-case-south-asia-coronavirus-deaths-200518090320358.html I wonder if the elephant in the room is Western countries have poor quality, high calory diet, and poor health propped up with good healthcare? True, but in so...

Re: do people choose their religion?

It's not people who choose god. it's gods who choose their people. But weren't gods created by man? Yes, they were. So in fact... it's people who choose people. And whom people choose is always the self, or the tribe or nation they live in. In fact, it would be ludicruous to say, "Hey, I believe in ...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

I think you are mixing things. An indeterminate system is a system that its state is not known. That doesn't mean that the system doesn't have any state. Well... to reply to the above, please refer to these quotes from my large quote: We can't know both an electron's position and momentum, therefor...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

I found a really good (and very old) article that tackles the subject. https://hilo.hawaii.edu/~ronald/310/Quanta.htm I quote it below. The significance of it is that quantum world is indeterminate, and its effect on the macro world (the world we live in and experience via our senses and apparatuses...

How do you reconcile Schroedinger's Determinist Equation with Heidegger's equation of indeterminism? If it was Heidegger. ....

How can you forget, Henry? You made the piont for six pages

What point am I tryin' to make? Indeed. If you are so forgetful or stupid that 1. you make a point and 2. in about five minutes you forget your own point, they you are not only stupid, but forgetful as well. Why do you put yourself out for the whole world (of those who can think) to laugh at you? N...

Not really. We read the paper, cluck disapprovingly at the crime section, and go about our business. We don't insist our towns, cities, nations, lockdown . We don't . You doofus.

Stupid until proven otherwise

The thing is, if someone has cancer, heart disease and diabetes and is living, even if poorly, and then this someone has cancer, heart disease, diabetes and COVID 19 and dies, then COVID becomes a little suspicious. There are clear and very well defined indicators to tell who dies from what. Henry,...
