Yeah it's fucking "different."

One shows a lower level of skill, ability and learning than the other which shows a higher level of skill, ability and learning .

Re: Knowing how versus Knowing that

Unconscious motor responses don't seem to require any higher level cognitive abilities. There is no high or low, only different. To attribute high or low, is always self serving. So 'the' asteroid is coming, you can either sit there and play a symphony for it's arrival, requiem, of course, or you c...

Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

It was my impression (from watching the video) that the Pope was directing his remarks to his own people in the Catholic church as well as those of other religions. I didn't see him as excusing Catholics from being disrespectful of other religions. Of course not. Showing that they are no better tha...

Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

How about spreading the lie that condoms increase the risk of AIDS? You'll have to link this one. I've never seen an official statement from the Vatican (or lesser RCC organization) to this effect. What about the proscription of family planning in a world bursting with population and poverty? This ...

Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

All religions lie, they are filtered through the perceptions of a born liar, ie man. They are not filtered; they are generated, invented and reproduced my humans. The worst of it is that belief overcomes intentional lies, and turns falsehood into acceptance. The real danger is that those purveying ...

Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

True but if they recognized all their guilt for all their ongoing crimes and constant lying to us, they would stop. They continue and show that they have no social conscience and are evil. This is a matter of opinion. We can point to a good deal of what the RCC does that is demonstrably good and in...

Re: The Unconvertibility of Islam

Not that any of it matters, because Christians become Muslim more readily than Muslims become Christian, which is the only thing RELEVANT to the thread. Most "Christians" are only vaguely connected with observing religion; being statistically christian by default; never going to church except weddi...

Re: Ask an atheist..?

There is no viable argument for the existence of god. In fact, there are several viable ("capable of working successfully; feasible") arguments, even if they do not convince you. The mistake you're making here is to confuse arguments for the existence of god with demonstration thereof. It is perhap...

Re: Knowing how versus Knowing that

Unconscious motor responses don't seem to require any higher level cognitive abilities. That is not the case with examples of excellence. Drumming and piano playing require unconscious viceral knowledge of the instruments; the score, and a deep emotional commitment to the music. People without high...

Science knows the universe exists as any scientifically qualified\or not, theist is also aware. Don't get on your high horse with your ill conceived idea that atheism is the only bastion of logic and reason.

Re: The French Question

To be pedantic that is question. Lead by example unless you are all Greek to me. ;) Some people just aren't hearing listening or at home to themselves. Those who don't learn from history are doomed to eat at Macdonals or Moobie or Sysiphus. ;) If can sum up: don't go somewhere where you have no ide...

Re: Morality the objective Crime; Ethics the subjective solu

The roots of morality do not reside in the rational Not sure you know what you are talking about. Some nations have had a very harsh and unforgiving approach to POWs, torturing and random killings has been every day business, even not taking any prisoners at all. Then in modern times we impose our ...

Re: Ask an atheist..?

Science does not believe in the universe. It is a method by which different models are used to describe it. The god method has been long abandoned except by those with no respect for reason and evidence. Science knows the universe exists as any scientifically qualified\or not, theist is also aware....

Re: The French Question

Most people are happy enough being able to say what they think. and few want the right to shout "FIRE" in a crowded cinema, or exhort people to murder. If you want the real deal fuck off and look at Saudi Arabia. This is pure nonsense and babble, caught right in the middle of your lies, then you ju...
