The desire for immortality

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dr. Allan H. Clark Feb 11. 19 Replies

Atheists often wonder at the refusal of theists to face the truth and to their ability to content themselves with a delusion unsupported by credible evidence. One reason is the desire for life after…Continue

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Michael Penn's discussion The Ramifications of Donald Trump
"I believe that's correct, but the message was somewhat blurred by placing its delivery in the hands of Trump, where it could easily be viewed as xenophobia."

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Michael Penn's discussion The Ramifications of Donald Trump
"While the Comey letter played a big part in Trump's victory, the roots of this seismic shift in American politics go way back. All the income gains for the last forty years have gone to the upper class. Middle class families compensated first…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to B.K.'s discussion Can Atheists feel comfortable in a Unitarian Universalist setting?
"That does sound rather more religious than most Unitarians I've known. In the nineteenth century they were among the most liberal of religious organizations. There were a number of distinguished Unitarians in American history—John…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to B.K.'s discussion Can Atheists feel comfortable in a Unitarian Universalist setting?
"I've never  joined a Unitarian Universalist church, but for many years when I was married we went to Star Island every year to a family week organized by Unitarians and I always felt quite comfortable with them. It seemed to me that most…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Captain Red Lebanon's discussion I will vote for Trump over Clinton. Here's why.
"There are any number of reasons to oppose both candidates, but Trump would be a disaster as President: he is inexperienced in government and politics, ignorant of the law and the Constitution, and has a vindictive temperament that obliges him to…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Compelledunbeliever's discussion Atheist, What is your ax to grind?
"There are several reasons for being vocal about disbelief. One is that many people have serious doubts about religion, but find it hard to summon up the courage to abandon it because they think they will be alone in their atheism. Just knowing that…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Jennifer Checki's discussion Are atheists arrogant?

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Jennifer Checki's discussion Are atheists arrogant?
"Theists seem to fear that atheists will destroy the social cohesion which religion provides, but the divisions among believers do far more to fragment society than the actions of atheists, who are after all a relatively small proportion of the…"

Daniel Wachenheim replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Wisdom of Solomon
"To me this looks similar to some parts of Ecclesiastes. I always thought that was existentialist and depressing at the same time."

Compelledunbeliever replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Wisdom of Solomon
"Most scholars believe that Solomon was not the author of the wisdom of Solomon or proverbs as most theist attribute them. There are stylistic differences within both books that suggest multiple authorship."

Michael Penn replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Wisdom of Solomon
"Solomon was a very wise man. Once two women were claiming to be the mother of a child and it was up to Solomon to decide what to do. He decided that the child should be cut in half, then you give each woman a half. Hey, that's logical."

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Michael Penn's discussion The Ramifications of Donald Trump
"Trump is a lot of things, many of them nasty and some of them dangerous, but he is also an amateur at politics, picking fights that win him no votes and often stepping all over his own message with comments that are irrelevant and outrageous. At…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to tom sarbeck's discussion The Voters, In Their Infinite Wisdom, Will Decide The Issue.
"This eighteenth century idea is encapsulated in the Latin motto: Vox populi vox Dei—the voice of the people is the voice of God. It was the title of a British whig tract and is sometimes attributed to Defoe. The notion that what the…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to EhhmmmWha's discussion Has anyone succeed in producing one species of accumulation of micromutataions?
"The statement is confused. One would not expect to 'produce' a new species, but to 'observe' its occurrence in nature, at least if you are speaking of natural selection. Micromutation refers to a small change, a single point…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Michael Penn's discussion The Ramifications of Donald Trump
"Previous experience with two psychopathic personalities leads me to think Trump shares a characteristic they exhibited. They both felt that anything they said was true if it went uncontradicted. Trump gets tremendous feedback fro his rally crowds…"

Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to tom sarbeck's discussion July 4th, A Good Time to See Nationalism as Religion.
"The British author Llewelyn Powys accompanied his brother, novelist John Cowper Powys, to a women's club where he gave a lecture. Here is his reaction to the pledge of allegiance, recited before the lecture: "

According to something I found online, the conversation between the robot and its creator is actually in Penrose's Shadows of the Mind, pgs 179-190.  The creator is "Albert Imperator".
