  1. Past hour
  2. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    People need to be smarter than believing in everything social media propaganda throws at you, from all sides of the spectrum.
  3. Some of my "ghost" stories

    Thanks for sharing. That makes the list of allegedly real ghost stories up to 10,001 and 10,002 that I have heard in my decades. I think the odds favor the existence of genuine paranormal phenomena in the human experience as opposed to all of them having a normal explanation.
  4. US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape

    That's funny as heck the UN passing a resolution against rape. lol So what are they going to do ban the peace keepers from entering a country. https://www.*** blocked ***/news/world/920390/Sexual-abuse-UN-peacekeeper-accused-612-cases
  5. Doing God's will.

    Thats facile xeno. Surely you're capable of a bit deeper thought than that? Actions have consequences, whether there is free will or not. Why wouldn't people be held accountable? If your car has faulty brakes, you take it off the road because it is dangerous. You wouldn't continue driving it because you feel sorry for it, as it has no free will. If it has enough wrong and can't be repaired, maybe you scrap it. Similar principle. What you wouldn't do, is hate it or consider it evil. You might even spend lots of time trying to understand the fault for future reference. All it will change is the retributive nature of the systems we now have. It will remove the need for moral condemnation and render the "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" sentiment as baseless. It removes justification for further suffering and hatred. It will open up the possibility of learning in ways that are now not usually considered. It will never mean no one is accountable.
  6. Who's to say fictional or real regarding characters or even places for that matter, wasn't it Plato that wrote everything for or of Socrates? I mean if some things were not found, notes etc. et cetera-- that philosophy character could have been known only as myth in the future.
  7. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    LOL. Your bubble will pop one day.........maybe.
  8. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    You seem to confuse inappropriate or ill-advised with criminal. Criminal can be prosecuted. Lord knows, Trump and his minions are far from angelic in demeanor and behavior. Neither Left or Right holds a monopoly on being criminally stupid, something people in high places, of all stripes, seem to always get a pass on (Except Martha Stuart). That Mueller, of all people, after two years of investigation, indicted no Americans for criminal conspiracy to collude with foreign nationals to tamper with the election, pretty much says it all. Game over. They'll never have the votes for a successful Impeachment. Sorry it's not the result you wanted; God knows you're not alone in that. From this point on, all Trump haters can do is impotently flog a dead horse, sounding shriller, looking angrier while egg drips from their faces. Ain't Politics wonderful?

  10. US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape

    Come on, drama queen.
  11. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    I don't understand what the big deal is. The terrorists targeted Christians and westerners in response to Christchurch. They even proclaimed so. Trying to dissect what someone says when the obvious is known is a waste of time. Anyone intelligent understands that not all Christians were responsible for Christchurch and the same, not all Muslims are responsible for this attack. Above all, these are just sick people and don't represent any ideology.
  12. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    Yeah, why didn't the Republicans look at Hillary's taxes when they controlled the house? Ah, never mind- she released them during the election.
  13. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    Eeeeh I'll pipe in, the Trumpet had plenty of opportunity in various places. Even if he doesn't start an action or whatever it will be named, as they do that you know, he won't receive a nobel peace prize, which by the way probably says something about the people handing those out.
  14. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    Tell me Wistman… because it was revealed that Hilary Clinton received $145 million from Vlad Putin (essentially) for her role in selling 20% of US uranium stock to Russia (presumably),, was it part of Democrat's duties to look closely into Hilary's financial records...? No.....? Repeat after me, "Democrat - good... Republican - BAD!!!"
  15. Doing God's will.

    Guess no one should be held accountable for anything. No free will, no choice, no responsibility.
  16. Doing God's will.

    That's true for most people. Free will or not, you still have to wipe your backside lol. It does have implications in areas of jurisprudence and ethics though. Not necessarily the way people fear, as it won't change things too much and it won't bypass responsibility, but some of our systems do need to be more aligned with reality. ps. One of the main problems with it seems to be in areas of research into what "consciousness" itself is. There are lots of assumptions accepted about it (that it has free will for instance) that are holding us back. Lots of time and effort has been wasted looking something consistent with these assumptions, rather than trying to objectively study and understand what is.
  17. Dyeus Pater ( Zeus/ Jupiter) could possibly be the ancestor of 99 percent of Indo-European/ Indo-Aryan speakers. He was a deified ancestor. Cronos on the other hand is "Time" personified and completely fictional.
  18. I have to give them points for their brazen courage. The squeaky wheel gets the grease after all. A little moderation in their requests probably would have made their chances of getting free loot a lot better though.....
  19. Is this cthulhu?

    you can find it in Google earth with coordinates 77°10´10"S 126°54´59"W 2861 m mountain.
  20. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    Your right there`s nothing will stopped the radicals Islamic ideology of ending Christians, and Jews, At least trump is trying to stop it and not a world war.
  21. I don't believe you

    And this be yours.
  22. YEP! Same with the net, there's so much there that can't be found and its just sitting there. OR! the data is right there in their systems and they don't even use it or display it or if they do somehow come up with the idea to display it for the public they don't because they can't come up with a way to charge HA! On the other extreme, one types in a search, and some of the sites that come up are not even relative/relevant, its so bad sometimes it might be about news and you click read to bottom ? about what shampoo or some nonsense , well I just don't even use AOL anymore something happened to it AND IN A BAD WAY a couple years ago, its just horrid now.
  23. Doing God's will.

    The reason why free will itself can't be demonstrated, is for obvious reasons. It can't logically be reconciled with reality to begin with, it's a paranormal concept that defies logic and requires a paranormal origin (a soul?). A universe where it exists is difficult to imagine (but not impossible), as it would require one particular biological structure that has a naturalistic cause like everything else, to not be subject to naturalistic cause and effect in the way it operates, and able to give contra causal outcomes. That's why we see philosophers trying to redefine it in hopes of rescuing it, rather than accept the obvious. It's becoming popularly accepted amongst neuroscientists that it doesn't exist, which is only going to be further demonstrated as technology increases. Eventually it will be considered a fact, just like evolution. Neuroscience is already being considered more and more in certain areas of society, though the implications are not what people might think. The general public aren't letting go of the little homunculus idea any time soon though. For similar reasons the ancients were sure the sun revolved around the earth...it sure looks/feels that way. It should be easy to demonstrate free will. Libet type experiments showing that will precedes the brains decisions would at least be evidence that it exists. If that happened I would be open to the possibility that both free will and the "soul" could exist. "Conscious free will" and the "soul" seem synonymous, they amount to the same thing. It's curious that even atheists who decry the paranormal are usually sure they have a thing called a "consciousness" that somehow possesses this "free will" as this seems quite a paranormal claim in itself. What they really seem to have is a physical structure (brain) that runs on cause and effect and is prone to illusions. In a universe where it really did exist and the "will" wasn't simply an extension of biology, why wouldn't we see tourettes sufferers simply use there "free will" to stop having tourettes? Or long term depression, multiple personality disorder, ocd, schizophrenia? Simply stopping these things should be easy, if the mind is not reliant on cause and effect and dictated by biology? How believers reconcile this, who knows. Perhaps it's only some people who have free will, some of the time lol? A man can do as he wills, but not will what he wills.
  24. I've always thought that free will is an illusion. If you are religious then you were created by an omnipotent being that knew your every choice when he made you and made you that way. If you are non-religious then you are a product of your upbringing, environment, and biology. A biological machine. When I see stuff like this it just reinforces that belief.
  25. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    Can't deny the fact the only ones beating war drums are the US and its sidekick.
