    WHERE DID WE (THE UNIVERSE) COME FROM?

    Not sure what the deal with all the tildas is, but if these are actually things you'd like to discuss, let me know.

    How did you choose your nickname?

    Nothing clever here, it just seemed appropriate.

    @LogicalFallacy ... really?

    Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

    I've never understood people who actually think this is an issue. Say what you want. Celebrate what you want. Who cares?

    Not to my knowledge.
  6. Joking aside, I think it's fairly clear that one can use something without abusing it. Furthermore, to point out obvious abuse of a thing, and its consequences, in no way precludes someone from using the same thing.

    Site mechanics

    When you get to 25 posts, you lose the "new member" tag, and then editing and liking powers are granted.

    @LeKopo, sorry you're going through this. Stop by discord sometime to chat. There's lots of good people there. PM me if you want.

    Are there a lot more men than women here?

    You are not wrong.

    So long and thanks for all the fish

    For the record, I did not intend to give the impression that I feel anyone is claiming "victimhood status". Not my way. I respect that not all forums are for everyone, and that's just fine. There's nothing wrong with electing not to have conversations that are not interesting or not helpful to you. What I meant to say is that, personally, I find it regrettable that an ex-Christian, any ex-Christian, should find that this is not an engaging and supportive space in which to engage in dialogue.

    Solid rant. If this has indeed become a place where only the strong can survive, then that is very regrettable. @VerbosityCat, I'm sorry you felt pushed out. You are not the first. I hope you'll reconsider, but if not, all the best.

    ... who is it who constantly complains about how science is ruined whenever money is involved? I can't seem to remember. It's on the tip of my tongue.

    As a rule, scientists do not proclaim things top be irrefutable facts. This is a gross misconstrual. They do proclaim things to be facts, but in science, all facts are refutable in principle. And, if they are shown to be incorrect, they cease to be viewed as facts. That's how science works.
  14. Yup, this is a major problem. But it won't be fixed, because too many people take BO's approach. We're driving a mass extinction event. We're driving climate change. We're driving ocean acidification. We're depleting resources. These are just facts. But those aren't really things anymore, so we'll just carry on.

    A brand new de-convert. It's a bumpy road.

    Hi Steven, and welcome! Many of us can remember the feeling of being lost. It does get easier in time. Looking forward to reading your extimony.
