  • More About Me
    I grew up Christian. I was a fundamentalist Bible thumper for over thirty years. At the peak of my narrow mindedness I was on par with Pat Robertson, who I once admired. In the last few years I mellowed. I became a liberal Christian. I realized the Bible was just a man made mess. And finally I gave up Christianity because I realized it's harmful and leads to bad behavior - some of which I participated in.

    Some people say that atheists do not have enough evidence to conclude that there are no gods. Interesting. I wish I could ask these people if they are unwilling to declare comic book characters to be fictional. What if there really is a Superman who lives in secret? What if there really is a Wonder Woman and we just don't know about her because she is in her invisible plane? I'm willing to take the plunge and say that we know beyond a reasonable doubt that comic book characters are fiction. We have far more evidence that God is fiction.

    "What gods are there, what gods have there ever been, that were not from man's imagination?"

    And here are hundreds of arguments that God exists.

    Are any of them compelling? Hmmm . . . don't think so.

  1. I keep asking. So far, no answers. I guess posting bigotry is fine here but criticizing bigotry isn't.
  2. Sorry but the very first post in this thread says "I guess the disease must spread somehow, huh?". Addressing that is on topic. This is the bullcrap I've been putting up with for weeks. Fwee starts a thread bashing women. I express my opinion that the ideas in the OP are incorrect. Then I am told that addressing the ideas in the OP is off topic. Then Fwee starts a thread bashing black people. I address the content of the OP and get told that I am off topic. Then Fwee starts a thread bashing gay people. And I'm told that I am off topic. Except I keep getting warned that I need to knock it off. I keep being threatened with being confined to a single thread that nobody will be able to see. I ask "what rule I broke" and never get an answer. Seems like my crime is that certain people hate me. Not yet. Two people are not the moderating team. I love the moderating team as a whole but I don't see why two moderators are imposing their personal whim as if that is a rule. Did they use red ink? No. When they use black ink they supposedly are not acting as moderators. Rules are suppose to be available for people to read so that we can know what is expected of us. Not make-it-up-as-you-go and then get mad at people randomly. I keep being told that I am breaking rules but nobody will show me the rule. Is this too much to ask?
  3. Okay I admit I didn't watch either video because they are way longer than 15 mins but are you saying they are claiming that the pyramids are much older than the traditional timeline?
  4. I have read the guidelines multiple times. I read them careful when I joined and again the two times they were updated. You say I have liberty but when I try to express my views I am told that I am breaking a rule. The rule is not identified but somehow I am breaking it anyway. Are you saying that when moderators use black ink they are laying down new rules that must be followed? The Terms of service are anything Fwee says in any post? I have not tried to enforce any of my desires. What I have done is try to persuade people by talking to them. Free expression should cut both ways. It shouldn't mean only one side has to follow rules and the other side gets to make new rules. Fwee makes political "gotcha" threads every week. If I critique the ideas in those threads than I am the bad guy rule breaker who must be silenced. Fwee did not use red ink but I have to do what he says when he uses black ink? Can you really not see that what you are doing sucks?
  5. Conspiracy theories and science shouldn't be in the same conversation. Apples and oranges and all that. As for the Egyptologists, I don't see why they would be upset. If it turns out this is right then they will simply be the curator of a second ancient culture. It still happened in the area that is now Egypt so they would still be in charge of whatever is found.
  6. Could you please tell me which rule(s) did I break? The TOT section is clearly marked so this is the only section for politics. It's also marked "almost anything goes". Yet I am told that I am breaking the rules. Which rule(s) did I break?
  7. Not the pyramids. Just the sphinx. And by "much bigger" we are talking about maybe 10% to 30% bigger than the present day sphinx. Perhaps "much" was a poor word choice on my part. And mostly thousands of years of rain are what chipped away at it.
  8. Wow, that is a really long video. I won't be getting into that but isn't the basic hypothesis that a much older culture made a much (slightly) bigger monument? Then the Egyptian culture grew up around that old monument and reshaped it to their own purpose? (Edited for clarity.)
  9. Yes you can! The Lock Ness Monster has appointed me as his spokesman and the Lock Ness Monster will be happy to have a relationship with you as long as you are willing to pay me. Oh plus the Lock Ness Monster has this list of rules he wants you to obey. Let me just write down the finishing touches on that list and you can start reading it right away.
  10. Yes of course, but what I means is that at a genetic bottleneck most of a species can't adapt and die out. A small fraction of a species have the required DNA to adapt and survive. For example people are creating a genetic bottleneck right now for weeds and insects. Humans spray to control weeds and bugs. Our herbicides and pesticides are over 99% effective. But there is that occasional organism that had just the right DNA to survive the spraying. And slowly we find more and more of new generations of weeds and bugs are immune to our spray. I think something similar happened for humans like 60k years ago and perhaps 200k years ago where volcanos (or something) almost wiped us out. Just wondering if other species developed a genetic bottleneck from the same event.
  11. It is dishonest when Christians call interaction with a spirit "not religion". Calling it a relationship is also dishonest unless you have objective evidence that said spirit is real. You can't commune with a spirit or memory. You have your own memories that you can visit any time you wish. Those memories can be about other people but they were memories you formed in your brain. Visiting memories is not what commune nor what relationship means. Same thing as the Midi-Chlorians that make Darth Vader powerful in the Force. Just a wild imagination.
  12. Can anybody figure out how no-good, poisonous Canada managed to double cross the United States and become a threat to national security? I've skimmed the G7 joint message. There doesn't seem to be anything offensive there so I don't get it. CNN has been warning us for months now about what happens during a trade war so that can't be a surprise to anybody, could it? But this "threat" is all talk right? We haven't changed our mutual defense strategy with Canada, right? I can't tell anymore. Did somebody think that only the US has the power to impose trade tariffs? At times like this I wish Rosie O'Donnell would take one for the team and draw some attention to herself. Could Canada ask ambassador Dennis Rodman to intervene? If I have fallen through a worm hole into another universe does anybody know how I can get back? "The past was alterable.
