  2. DA: Derailers Anonymous Thread II

    Too bad I need them to get around from place to place.
  3. Atheism and faith

    At least we can agree on something. This is the whole point of this thread. Do atheists have faith? That seems obvious, given the recurent beliefs/assumptions that they propose and that is outlined in the OP. But I have been stoned by a crowd for even bringing that up.
  4. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Ask the Farmer or our Tiggs and I think you'll find there's still tremendous interest. Like this: It starts at 1:30
  5. Don't believe Reisman at all but Jean Lopez is the Harvey Weinstein of TKD. Women have been accusing him of rape since at least the early 2000s and Team USA always swept it under the rug. The whole "Lopez Family" brand was a big thing for them.

    You are forgiven :P. Well, fair enough then. Do you hold yourself in "the highest light" then? Is there anything "greater than you"? Your kids? Your wife? Your mother? A celebrity? Are you willing to bestow this level of "greatness" on anything tangible? Even intangible. You don't sound like you have much "faith" in the abstract that doesn't lend itself to you easily? Fair enough if that's the case, I don't tend to lend myself to things that don't have some intrinsic sense appeal to me. You sound like you operate from an ethic the basis of which you attribute to an innate sense of logical morality. The only reason your morals are skewed the way they are is due to the influence of religions like Christianity on the human psyche over thousands of years. If religions didn't develop do you honestly think that primordial man would think and feel as you? Many atheists operate under a Christian ethic making up a core component of their very personalities. It's not easy to "see" that if you're not comparing yourself to the typical human from 10 000 years ago though. Sort of postulating here. There's nothing particularly "static" about my views. I'm open to refute and I'm open minded. I learn from being wrong. Though I don't think a lot of this is so much about "right and wrong" between many of us. It's more about "the best perspective" than anything.
  8. 1960 Evil Overpass ! Humble, TX

    The old movie theater is beside Pancho's restaurant and is now a Planet Fitness. I think you're describing that weird tractor parts store that looks like a theater and is connected to a church. Anyway, the owners cleared out a lot of the woods and the cemetery isn't really hidden now. There are even houses or businesses across from it. Still wouldn't recommend going. It's trespassing and Humble cops aren't pleasant.

  10. Mind-Body- debate

    Sorry, but I view science and the sciences as tools. Not a faith. Science teaches me stuff so I'm not an idiot. I like learning. Which is why I care little for religion. Nothing to actually learn from it, if I wanted deep thought and insight, I'd read more philosophy. If I wanted to dig more into wishful thinking, I'd go with psychology. If I wanted to go on blind faith, I'd drink draino and hope for the best.

    Ignore them. They're trouble makers.
  12. Russia probes kick into high gear

    Basically he is investigating irregularities within the DoJ and FBI at the highest levels. These irregularities became evident when the when ADM Rogers, head of the NSA noticed massive abuse of the FISA surveillance system about the same time a lot of questions were being asked about how the DoJ and FBI handled the Clinton email scandal, (she was absolutely guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt and anyone who says differently is either lying, biased to the point of being beyond trusting any longer or a moron). This generated many oversight committee investigations (ongoing and creating scandal in their own right). Mueller was turning over a lot of dirt and in that dirt the worms of the present scandal were seen. FISA abuse, corrupt DoJ and FBI leaderships etc. so Inspector General Horowitz has spread his investigation to these further abuses of power. This week he turned over his preliminary report on the Hilary email scandal and it appears to be damning with reported criminal procedures having been recommended (the preliminary report goes to the principals (Wray of the FBI and Sessions of DoJ for their input). The final report, the one that will answer some of our questions decisively, is rumored to be out by the end of May. Horowitz will subsequently issue several other reports concerning this thread's topic and many others and so I consider this thread as relevant to many other topics, especially since the Russia collusion thing is dead except to the hard core lost souls. Much is speculation but answers are now coming and, frankly, it looks to be anything but a waste of time. I believe a soft coup was tried in the USA. Al of the suddenly knowledgeable leftists above who now know all the facts are the same who have stated unequivocally since the beginning of this thread that none of this was going on so take their word with a block of salt. Same thing with the sudden change at the NY Times that knows the truth can no longer be denied and so are spinning it in a most ridiculous fashion.
  13. Sigh... If you actually gave a crap about statistical analysis and facts you'd know that there's hardly any reason to fear illegal immigrants. Should they have come here illegally? No, of course not. But the overwhelming majority of them are here simply to provide a better life for their family. They aren't all hardened drug dealing gang members and rapists like conservatives suggest.

    A sublime weekend of traveling, building bridges, connecting and renewing the mortar of stones...
    Good to hug old bones and new.

    I wouldn't deny ham either, because without it, we wouldn't have BACON.
  16. Mind-Body- debate

    I get where Will is coming from. God can be thought of as "the highest ideal" however that is represented. Be wary of seeing the "good" in the representations of "Satan." Malevolent forces operate under the mechanism of human emotion too. That is, they experience the same level of "greater good" as those who believe in God. They act "for the best of humanity" in the same way those who believe in God "act for the best of humanity". A force of "evil", loosely speaking, operates under the same notions of virtue is a force of "good". It's only one viewing the other where perception causes emotions to skew to the negative side, because that's the emotional layers we use to interpret that which is sometimes different, and certainly opposite, operating to bring the world into perspective. Now, regarding where I view Will coming from thinking of Science as God. Many "non-believer-scientific-types" view Science as "the highest ideal". In this sense Science is "their God". What's "more ideal" than Science? Science doesn't tell a person how to behave. Unless you view all of life as economics and operate by some principles derived from game theory however that sounds like no basis for typical human psychological tendencies. Something else that confuses me is this "I believe in God" or "I don't believe in God." I don't believe or believe. I know. I've seen a couple of people now and again talk about this "knowing". Carl Jung comes to mind. The same "knowing" hit me tripping on DMT. The first time I experienced it was around 4 and then again at 6. I don't think it's innate to everyone.

    And, I wouldn't just deny Ham. But, Nimrod was known as a mighty hunter, who descended from Ham and started the Tower of Babel, and basically started all of human civilization, starting the first major human cities. And Egypt and everything else because Abram was renamed Abraham as he was to dwell with Ham.
  19. Atheism and faith

    Yeah. Just a few weeks ago I saw myself on here. It was a train wreck.

    It's the king of non-answers. If you can't present a valid argument or discussion point you do that.

    That's one weird fetish.
  25. Atheism and faith

    What's the point in quoting gospel?
  26. Atheism and faith

    I'll try and answer one sentence at a time. Are you suggesting that all religions have snippets of truth? Or that all religions are true? I disagree that religion has nothing to do with a person's belief in God, it evidently does. I agree also that for some people their belief in God isn't dependent on religion. Faith is personal, but it doesn't mean people will stop behaving like sheep and following the crowd. True religion will never unite people because there is no such thing as one true Religion. Also like it or not Atheism is based on faith and is also a Faith.

    No doubt God new of the long term consequences of inbreeding and banned it.
