Re: General Music Thread

I thought this was neat ... especially as it was filmed in the town (City of 7500) where I work. Well the bits with the red roofed stairs. The rest was filmed a little bit further up the hill and in Nelson.

Re: The Science Delusion

My definition of God is something that can create life, destroy life, assist, intervene or not intervene. Yep .. the universe fits that bill too ... in that it seems to have created sentient life. But with conscious intention? I doubt it ... this quote answers your question I think. If the moon, in...

Re: Monism, Dualism and Pluralism

I'm unsure which conclusion I'm supposed to have jumped to here This one immediately comes to mind: truth that human nature is our real enemy but agree getting a sense of 'how the universe actually ticks' working our way up from there is an attractive option. However, the presumption we will ever a...

Re: Monism, Dualism and Pluralism

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Alternatively there always has been something ... a universe, multiverse or whatever? A non interventionist god ... should it exist does not give us any special insights either. It is OK to say I don't know. Having said that ... what next? What next? Maybe facing up to...

Re: The case for a non-interventionist God

The case that non-intervention theism is nonsense has not much stuffing in it. Pointing out that religion is, in the main, stark raving mad is a case against intervention theism.

Re: The case for a non-interventionist God

All interesting but we appear to have wandered from theological speculation into speculative physics. To bring things back from cosmology (?) to the divine I wan't to draw attention to the common notion pushed by many of the religious that this thing called 'God' isn't the God of the spaces but the...

Re: Inherited intelligence.

Watching Jordan Peterson lecture on IQ he said few interesting things: 1) He said if we don't accept psychological studies on intelligence we may as well throw away all psychological studies in that intelligence is the most studied and it has the most rigorous stats. 2) He agreed there is a signific...

Re: Worst US President ever.

This recent Kushner and Donald jr debacle with a Russian Lawyer. Donald shares this email with Kushner and perhaps others but not senior. Kushner apparently pays scant attention to the email. But goes with Donald jr to see the Russian lawyer. They apparently don't get anything worthwhile. When quest...
