    Barack Hussein Obama's Willfull Violation of the U.S. Constitution: Impeach him?

    Eleven consecutive posts without prompting or response. That has to be a new record. One wonders, since it's clearly capable of entertaining itself, why must the rest of us suffer?

    Are Massive Arcs of High-Energy Photons That Sweep Milky Way From Another Universe?

    Re: Are Massive Arcs of High-Energy Photons That Sweep Milky Way From Another Univers It's a concept in M-Theory, which is one of the major schools of String Theory. Theoretically, a Brane is a String (Not the kind you're cat plays with.) stretched in several dimsensions. According to...

    Are Massive Arcs of High-Energy Photons That Sweep Milky Way From Another Universe?

    Re: Are Massive Arcs of High-Energy Photons That Sweep Milky Way From Another Univers This strikes me as similar in principle to the Big Splat theory, that our universe was formed by two colliding branes.

    The God Squad- Religion obsessives and philosophical types unite!

    Whoops. My bad. I can’t tell from text, I merely assumed. Of course, we all know what happens when one does that. Phrases like this just give me the warm fuzzies.

    Absolutely. However, this project at hand does not require a PHD. I'm merely critically evaluating a public institution. This is really masturbatory nonsense. I'm perfectly aware of the limitations of human knowledge, but I'm pretty sure we exist and are having this conversation, clearly so...

    Non-academic, possibly. I could very well concede that. Otherwise, nonsense. This is absurd. One does not need a theology degree to use and understand the word 'religion.' We're going to have to agree to disagree. This is a total impasse. I think this is so fundamentally wrong. What...

    Bill Maher is a Filthy Racist

    No, he isn't. Moreover, given your political affiliations, and previous statements you've made, this fake outrage about racism is just totally ridiculous. Today, that's probably accurate, or at least more accurate than not. To the extent that racists participate in mainstream politics...

    Yes, words have multiple meaning and interpretations. However, I know what I meany by it, and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, as well. So, it's really irrelevant. First of all, making a moral judgement was part of my whole point. That religion necessitates and perpetuates barbarism...

    Can u smell the burning animal flesh at Moz's fave LA hangout-Cat & Fiddle?

    I can't believe I'm saying this; but for once in his life he's right about something.

    You need to take up meditation, or yoga or something. There's no comparison. I 'believe' in a material universe, governed by the four forces, by the laws of thermodynamics, etc. This 'belief', if you want to call it that, is based on empirical evidence and observation. I am just as passionate...

    WTF Israel?

    I disagree. I was against the war before it even began. I don't see any hypocrisy, here. The central thesis was this recent assault by IDF forces, if there had been some big massacre, or some similar even in Iraq or Afghanistan, it would get it's own thread and we'd discuss it. There have been...

    WTF Israel?

    There's tons more footage we haven't seen, and maybe never will. There were a number of journalists on the boat, Israeli forces seized the cameras and footage and have been disinclined to disclose them. They haven't released any footage of the initial approach, which implicitly supports the...

    Awww.. Why, thank you. I think human nature gets a bad rap. I also think it gets thrown around too carelessly. I think a lot gets attributed to it that shouldn't be, most of it bad. No, it's not the only one, but it's the worst one. Most Chinese citizens can get around the ban, one of...

    WTF Israel?

    What little we've seen of the raid is almost entirely worthless. There are hours worth of footage from multiple cameras and Israel has only released a couple of images that, unsurprisingly, paint them in the best possible light. (Unlike, for example, the American kid who was shot several times...

    Jackie London & Emotional Guide Dog, I'm just going to post one response, because you're oth essentially making the same argument, so I'll just 'kill two birds' as the saying goes... First, as Jackie London asks, what is religion? Religion includes culture, and practices, clothing, rituals...

    No, no, no. I'm not pre-judging, I'm judging. That is a logical conclusion based on the facts. It's absolutely true. Some religions are worse than others, but they're all fundamentally bad.

    It sounds like you're misunderstanding atheism. I can't prove there is no god. However, I also can't prove there are no unicorns. Theres' about as much evidence for one as the other. This does not mean that I should seriously consider the existence of unicorns, or that study or speculation into...
