I'm reading the book "A Universe From Nothing" by Lawrence Krauss.  There's a YouTube video lecture summary of the book if you want to take a look.  It's a perfect fit for the end of my "Philosophy of Religion" course.  Is there an uncaused cause?  Lawrence says the universe can come from nothing.

I also bought Kerygma and Myth which is out-of-print.  I take these courses for some reason.  I'm running out of ones to take.  I could watch courses from Dallas Theological Seminary on iTunes U for free next.  I'm such a weird atheist.

If humans were actually smart, they wouldn't need religion.

Quoting MissMonteCarlo:

I always think when they say in the beginning there was nothing that the nothing is a nothing which is something- ha. If you understand what I am saying.

I'm sure there was something recently suggesting that there wasn't a big bang. I'm sure it was something to do with the universe  not expanding.  Would need to look it up.. I tend to believe in Scientific theories though. More plausible to be than the world was created in 7 days.

I love watching programmes about the universe and those star gazing live programmes. I even have sky app on my iphone so if I see a star or planet I hold my phone up towards it and find out what it is called.

 

Sarah :-)



I have to check that app out.  I just bought my *first* smartphone.  I'm behind the times even though I'm a techie.

Quoting tivo_fiend:

Newton studied alchemy and astrology.  Galileo was under house arrest for the rest of his life for heresy for believing the Sun was the center instead of the earth.  So your quotes make no sense whatsoever.  Sorry about that.

Oh, and math is found in Nature? I don't understand how that requires anything other than math.



Are these the miscellaneous ramblings of a troubled mind or the Machiavellian musings of an evil fiend?

Not gonna jump down that rabbit hole.  No, no...I didn't just fall off the cronut truck... I been around the blog a few times before.  Did you really think that posting the most outrageously stupid and ridiculously idiotic response that I might be lulled into thinking you suffered some sort of cranial/anal inversion and then you'd slash me to pieces with your rapier like wit and enormous intellect?  I know you read a book or two but so did I.  I've always thought " a mind is a terrible thing to waste" but I do take solace in knowing one was not wasted on you

 

Beware ladies, while it may look as though he's been drained of blood, he's a lamb in cheap cothing.  His charm and sense of humor will have your panties dropping much like Newton's apple.

Quoting 3345roc:

So sorry for insulting your sensibilities.

When out on a date...

1.  If your date makes a mistake be sure to correct her immediately.  Make certain that she understands why she's wrong.  Test her repeatedly to make sure she understands.  Women love this!!!

2.  Talk 90% of the time and let her talk 10% of the time.  Talk mostly about yourself and make sure she knows that what you have to say is so much more important than what she has to say.  It'll make things much easier as the relationship progresses.  Women love to be with a smart, egocentric narcissist... they just love it.

3.  Before the date ends be sure to explain to her how she feels about you and why.  She might not know and will be grateful for the information.

 

as an aside, you might want to familiarize yourself with the NuStar telescope and the technology that merges color and x-ray images.

"God is known... by Nature in his work and by doctrine is His revealed word".  Galileo

‘The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.’ Pasteur

‘When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.’”
Sir Isaac Newton

The many occurences of the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio in Nature.... I don't think that happened by chance.

You really can't see a faint X-ray of a hand?  Many others have seen it but no one has mentioned the face of Jesus with a crown of thorns that I see.  Spatial relations, progressions and pattern recognition are components of most standardized IQ tests and even more in the less popular Creativity Quotient.

Once again sorry ... hope I didn't interrupt any reading you might be doing

Quoting tivo_fiend:

photos like that are called patternicity.  There's a Nov 2008 article in Scientific American called "Patternicity" by Michael Shermer.  Basically people see things they are primed to see.  With these NASA photos, partly this is ridiculous because the coloring is arbitrary.  What is the real color of X-rays in this photo?  Think about it.

Quoting 3345roc:

A recent photo of a dying star, entitled the hand of God.  Many claim it looks like an X=Ray of a hand but I think it looks like the head of Jesus.  Note the bright reddish orange at the top and imagine the crown of thorns... the face should appear.

A hypocrite is an atheist who writes a book and prays to God it'll be a success.

A higher power than I ....That I can not deny. Be it Ancient Alien influences or the power of our own enlightened spirits.
