    The Aura Of Scientific Legitimacy

    Mike, from a couple of posts ago, are you basically saying that the Christian god is the one true god because he says so? I know you communicated it more eloquently but is that the basic idea? Surely a logician like yourself can see the problem with that?

    To be fair though, even that's better than half if instantaneous being still pretty fast.

    Soooo.....is anyone gonna take a stab at how GPS works if the speed of light isn't 299,792,458 m/s? I'm quite curious about this. Edit- In all directions.

    No. Genesis says death came after Adam sinned. I accept it clearly says that. The animals were also eating veggie-burgers at that time. What about those veggies? Does plant death count as death?

    The word "poof" comes to mind. It saddens me that American slang doesn't contain that magical word.

    Why Is This Science?

    Yea, I've read it. It makes for an entertaining read but, they misspell 'physics' and 'physicist' pretty often so make what you will of the science from that.

    Dawkins

    Is the bulk of that post aimed at me or just atheists/atheism in general? Cos I'm not trying to defend the so called atheist "philosophy", I was just commenting on what Dawkins thinks about "Survival of the fittest" as a way to live your life. Plus I think Fjuri and Gilbo currently have the definition of atheism in good hand, I'll leave it to them for now Plus I'm not an atheist Yea Pi, modern medicine definitely is affecting "survival of the fittest " and, as the old joke goes, so is the Health and Safety at Work Act lol

    Dawkins

    Yes....we are agreed that survival of the fittest as a philosophy of how to live your life is wrong. Seriously how many times do I have to say I'm in agreement with you? That's not to say it isn't a naturally occurring process, it just means we, as intelligent humans should rise above it. Di you understand that I'm in agreement with you Mike?

    Dawkins

    I'm not really sure what you're getting at Mike. I totally agree, as does Dawkins, that survival of the fittest as applies to human society and interactions is not the way we should treat each other. The point is that while those that are better suited to their environment will naturally do better by default, we,as humans, should use our intelligence to overcome this and work together for the benefit of all and not exploit those weaker or 'less fit' in order to make it to the top, or to gain from it at the very least. My point is that you, me and Dawkins all agree on this. And every other right minded person in world. Sadly there are far to many who don't agree.

    Dawkins

    Yup you're right Gilbo. Call it competition or survival of the fittest, it still amounts to the same thing. This does happen in the world. Whether or not it can lead to biological evolution is a different story. All I'm saying is in response to Mike's post at the top of this page ( I can't see what post number it us on my phone), particularly the last paragraph which begins "I would like to ask him" ( my phone won't let me copy and paste now....I'm having a shocker this morning with this piece of crap ) The answer is yes, Dawkins does think we should use our intelligence to modify evolution and reduce its negative effects.

    Dawkins

    I basically agree with what you say however humans don't eat humans (at least I never have). Hunger is naturally occurring also and that seems to drive me rather than the "spin" "survival of the fittest". Ummm yea... the "eat" part isn't meant to be taken literally as applied to human society . It's more of a metaphor/idiom. The "hunger" could be any form of competition at all, for instance, if you ever went for a job interview with more than just yourself as an applicant. You must have done that at lest once? If you got the job then that was "survival of the fittest"

    Dawkins

    Dawkins talks at length about the (throw in an 'alleged' here so as not to risk a begging the question fallacy ) evolutionary origin of religion. And how that even though survival of the fittest is a naturally occurring process both in nature and human society, we should use our sapience and rise above such Darwinian dog-eat-dog behavior and, to paraphrase, love thy neighbor.

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    What I wanted you to elaborate on was things like thought,logic and truth not being able to exist within an atheistic worldview, not atheism being a belief system. It was a genuine question, Enoch, not a loaded question, playing dumb or playing devil's advocate. This has happened several times while posting on here now, I'll be sure to go to great lengths to be ultra specific from now on. Kid gloves are needed, I fancy.

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    If it's a "SINCERE" query, I have no problems and will most often give them Hot Chocolate and Rub their feet. It was a sincere query, considering I had never heard any atheist or even theist at that, claim that thoughts and logic cannot exist in an atheist world view. Or that atheists are stealing from the Christian world view to argue against them. And I honestly don't think I've ever heard a more retarded statement. And I used to consider you one of the smarter ones around here. Enjoy deluding yourself.

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    You just yourself. How so? Are you saying that I'm offended so therefore I can't ask that question? Cos I assure you I'm not, it's more that I'm exasperated with most people like you I've communicated with on these forums. Whenever I ask a question you guys seem to think it's an argument against what you believe in and act as it no one has the right to do so.

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    Is this what Jesus had in mind when he said to witness to people? To be a condescending jerk? I suppose it's all you have to fall back on though considering your arguments are ludicrous beyond belief. Why can't any of you people hold a conversation about this stuff without either getting offended or jumping on your holier-than-thou high horse?

    The One Way Speed Of Light

    I'm not trying to argue anything, I'm asking a question. The speed of light being instantaneous in one direction then half of that back the way is central to the video you posted and I don't understand how that can be possible considering the definition of 'instantaneous '
  19. keysi

    The One Way Speed Of Light

    For a numerical value of half of instantaneous? Go on then....

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    When you say "you" do you mean me? I only ask cos I was the last to post and you're using that pronoun. If you do mean me then I'm actually an agnostic not an atheist, I just dont agree with yoyr definition of atheist. If not never mind . You're adopting the CHRISTIAN World View by using IMMATERIAL (Thoughts, Truth et al).... using the very things you CAN'T Believe In, as the vehicle/medium to present evidence for the very thing you don't believe in (lol, btw)....Truth/Logic/Thoughts ect, The Christian World View! Can you elaborate more on this please, why is truth logic etc native to the Christian world view? Are they impossible without Christianity? Were they invented by Christians? What about societies who existed before Christianity?

    The One Way Speed Of Light

    So what is half of zero delay?
  22. keysi

    Half of instantaneous is still pretty fast.....wow. The pride of physicists worldwide you are Enoch.

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    This is why muslim extremists are just as bad as the atheist serial-killers, because they also don't have God in their lives, so they also hate because they only have a false god. Isn't it the same abrahamic god they believe in as you guys tho? Apologies if my replies today will seem short and as if I'm not putting in the same effort as you, since I know you love your long replies, I'm on a train travelling cross country and it's really difficult to write long posts from my mobile phone plus the signal is horrendous. The avatar is pretty cool yea

    Stereotypical Atheism?

    I kinda disagree with the notion of atheism requiring a "spokesperson" or that it needs to be considered any sort of movement or organisation. It's just a lack of belief in the supernatural or deities. But then again, that's because I live in a pretty moderate, liberal country. I suppose the organisation and "escaping religion help groups" (not sure the correct, if any, title they have) would be necessary in countries where religion still plays a large role in government, education and society & daily life. Not sure about a "stereotypical" atheist. People of all walks of life will act like jerks. Especially on the Internet. That's why when you go on an atheist forum and you see a lot of swearing and abuse, I don't think it's a result of their atheism, but of the fact that people will show off and act like the big tough guy when they have annominity and an audience.

    It just sounds a bit like one of these logical fallicies to me. And a tad ridiculous.
