"Thank you for your thoughtful response James. I think there actually is a “normal” life span for each species as determined by the genetic code that regulates their existence. However, that said, I think that a the potential biological…"

"Well said. When you put number 7 together with number 10 you get a picture of a balanced life cycle. Note that god believers want to dismiss or eliminate number 10. If that was possible our earth and environment would be a very scary place indeed."

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens

The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens 1/ Oxygen (air). The element oxygen is imperative for almost all life on Earth. Our atmosphere is 21% oxygen with the rest made up almost entirely of nitrogen along with other gases at pretty much trace levels. Oxygen is the element in air that allows animals, including humans, to conduct the chemistry of life. The 21% is critical because below 17% not enough oxygen is present to allow for comfortable breathing and oxygen levels…See More

"God controls the lottery just like he controls everything else. That's why everything in our world is random chance."

Does God control who wins the lottery?

Does God control who wins the lottery? The answer is, OF COURSE, providing that He/She/It actually exists in form and function as described and defined by any of the current religions that are based on the belief that a God with the supernatural powers, human behavioral orientation, and intense interest in the conduct and outcome of individual and collective human affairs actually exists. After all, god is reputed to know and care about every sparrow that falls to the ground. So if that is the…See More

So, you want to defeat ISIS...

In order to defeat ISIS, it is necessary, very necessary, to destroy the foundation of extremist, fundamentalist Islamic religious belief. It is possible to do this by attacking the ISIS stronghold of the city of Dabiq in northern Syria, decisively defeating protecting ISIS forces, and…

Perception and Religion

Posted on November 20, 2015 at 9:43am 3 Comments

Something we seldom realize or consider when we take a position on, well, pretty much everything, but especially on matters of politics, culture, and religion is that, to use an old and hackneyed phrase, ‘Perception is Reality”. And human perception depends on many things, including the culture that formed the human mind, the environment we occupy, the current state of human knowledge (that changes over…

Quit claiming to be a man of science and an atheist if you're going to post about how you had a vivid dream about gawd. Why would you do that? There are better sites to troll, and really you guys are seriously annoying, and you give a bad name to theists everywhere.

Hi Martin. I hear you--both on learning to navigate this site and on your dismissal of religion and leanings toward science. About the same time (actually 1954), when I was 11, I saw Saturn through a telescope and it blew me away. Leonardo da Vinci became my idol. Eventually, I became a science teacher which gave me a grand opportunity to impress the subject on young minds and indirectly diminish religion. I had to walk a fine line there!

Anyway, continue to explore the site and jump in any time.
