Re: True Nature of Evolution

Hmmm, this mixing in of replies doesn't really help much, we've gone through bold and italics, I guess my replies here will have to be in blue . This quoting makes constructing replies hazardous, hope I don't mangle things too much! TEEHEE. No I find your understanding of TD mystical nonsense. You ...

Re: True Nature of Evolution

This quoting makes constructing replies hazardous, hope I don't mangle things too much! TEEHEE. No I find your understanding of TD mystical nonsense. You have mystified a materialist concept - that is a misunderstanding. What is heat? What for that matter, is matter? Is there any definition that ca...

Re: True Nature of Evolution

@Mike Strand Thank you :o). It's a nice way to think about things I find, and it definitely is a larger perspective. Energy is still, and probably always will be, a very misunderstood concept. You can think about pretty much anything in terms of it, without ever knowing what the 'it' actually is. I...

Re: True Nature of Evolution

Mystical idiotic nonsense, devoid of an understanding of NS and evolution. Energy does not change in nature, it does not mutate, it does not reproduce, it cannot evolve. There is no such thing as an energy structure. Energy does not compete. The short version is, as nameless states, both. Here's th...

Re: Who won the Vietnam war?

It's interesting that we speak about war using the language of competitive sport. I think that we need to find other ways to talk about it (or, if those ways exist - and they probably do - we need to use them instead). Either this or we include 'war' as simply a type of sport. When a war is 'won' i...

Re: A Challenge to Richard Dawkins and the Atheists

I only answer shortly until then. I have this to write: In a way this whole argument "atheist no morals vs religious morals" is a non-argument. There is no such thing as an atheist who cannot also be identified with many other things: wife, husband, son, conservative, liberal, painter, gardener, ju...

Re: A Challenge to Richard Dawkins and the Atheists

Thanks, Wootah , it's a fine series of answers! :) However, ...that Hitler and Stalin have not been primarily motivated by Christian beliefs! I don't get your following sentence in the context of this. It says: Which Christian teaching motivated their beliefs? Let's speculate that Hitler has been m...

Re: A Challenge to Richard Dawkins and the Atheists

Just to make a quick answer, without acknowledging it and without having the alleged positivity and love of human kind, there's one devious black strand of Atheism that goes the absolutely wrong way and it is basically and only this that I want to address! As opposed to logical, rational thinking, ...

Re: What causes porn addiction???

I don't have that addiction myself, but have seen it before. Is it the act of seeing others genitals go in and out of eachother that is so addicting, or is it that they pretend that person they are seeing is their partner? Both? None of them...please explain! It is probably all to do with the link ...

Re: A Challenge to Richard Dawkins and the Atheists

No, atheism give me the freedom of thought to commit to a moral and ethical code of my own choice. I am free to reject the stoning of women for adultery. I am free of God, Queen and Country. I am free to make the choice in my life of who I want to sleep with. I am free of worshiping a jealous and u...

Re: On Time and Archaeology

Hi mrblue, Welcome to the forum, I have enjoyed your posts. How short do you think 'now' can be and still sustain consciousness? Or, to put it another way, what is the smallest perceivable overlap, in seconds, between 'past' and 'future'? Surely "now" is the eternal moment of immanence? Time is ana...
