  1. Stab me in the heart, why doncha! jk You sound young and full of energy. The reddit sub you have sounds helpful. Try to be moderate and enjoy life, even though you have a crusade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Walsh_(television_host) John Walsh was pretty successful in his crusade. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”― There! Hows that?
  2. Leia has denied our most excellent tutelage? Well, shit.
  3. In liberal Christian Hell you get a participation trophy.
  4. God's special plan for your life is the same as his plan for everybody else's life.
  5. I dont like the dentist so I avoid going there. I dont like this prick I worked with so I never think about him. I dont like water so I dont go swimming. I dont like Jesus so I talk about him every fucking day. lol. What's wrong with this picture? (haha)
  6. 522 members! Good for you. Not sure how inviting Christians over to give support to people who left/are leaving another supposedly Christian sect is going to work out though. I assume there is some doctrinal overlap between NIFB and every other Christian denomination. Might want to ban Xians altogether. My 2 cents.
  7. Unless James Randi was there it didnt happen.
  8. "I accept the reality of these intensely felt experiences. They are as authentic as any other subjective feeling or perception. As a scientist, however, I operate under the hypothesis that all our thoughts, memories, percepts and experiences are an ineluctable consequence of the natural causal powers of our brain rather than of any supernatural ones. How sad that he constrains his thinking to a physical reality. Not all scientists are materialists. That premise has served science and its hand-maiden, technology, extremely well over the past few centuries. Unless there is extraordinary, compelling objective evidence to the contrary, I see no reason to abandon this assumption. The challenge, then, is to explain NDEs within a natural framework." Extraordinary and compelling are personal opinion. Someone can present evidence of the paranormal and someone else can just say "Nope, that's not compelling." I guess I could also say that explaining NDEs within a natural framework just isnt compelling to me therefore I will reject it. ........
  9. Is science about proving that Jesus and all religions are false? Is science about learning new stuff? Is science about making damn sure we all think like robots for materialism? Is science about exploration and curiosity?
  10. Everyone is fallible and even people of good conscience who genuinely believe they are telling the truth are still capable of error or of unwitting bias. .... Even atheists are biased? No way! lol
  11. I dont think we really have enough evidence to make any pronouncements about Georgia's education, her job, or her knowledge of science...yet. Science is a pretty big field, anyway. Someone being ignorant about my favorite aspect of science does not mean that person is ignorant of all science. My favorite science thing might be sporadic E or tropospheric ducting but if you dont know what I'm talking about without googling it, I'll cut you a break. Most people dont. What does Richard Dawkins know about the Java programming language or fusion reactors? My wife can tell you all about phlebotomy, plasma, platelets, coagulation , all that nasty shit, but I bet she doesnt know what a scientific theory really means and she worked in the medical field...OMG. There are probably many different specific job positions within the mental health field that nobody here would even know about. I bet there are positions that require a degree and other positions that do not. Did Georgia say she finished her degree or just that she went to college? People, especially young people may have to start at the bottom, and work their way up. She may work in a non-degree position that still works with patients. Maybe she works in a mental hospital , or maybe a nursing home. Maybe she's an office worker. Maybe she's a patient advovate. Maybe she's a chaplain. Maybe she's an accountant. Maybe she hands out pills. Maybe she is security. She might be in access control. Maybe she's a doctor! A Christian doctor. Lot of possibilities exist.
  12. People is people. Some just have letters after their name.
  13. Looking at this from an employer's p.o.v., would you take on someone who writes as poorly as Georgia, who has such a poor grasp of science and who genuinely believes that the government of the UK is being controlled by Satan? If she was my daughter. Or niece.
  14. "Some health and safety interest groups have interpreted certain reports to suggest that wireless device use may be linked to cancer and other illnesses, posing potentially greater risks for children than adults. While these assertions have gained increased public attention, currently no scientific evidence establishes a causal link between wireless device use and cancer or other illnesses. Those evaluating the potential risks of using wireless devices agree that more and longer-term studies should explore whether there is a better basis for RF safety standards than is currently used. The FCC closely monitors all of these study results. However, at this time, there is no basis on which to establish a different safety threshold than our current requirements." https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/wireless-devices-and-health-concerns
