Re: Secular Morality

I believe that all societal animals display behaviors which, in humans, we call either morality or altruism, depending on the behavior displayed. Furthermore, humans have an extremely strong sense of empathy: we can put ourselves in the shoes of anyone, and see the world as they see it. This abilit...

Re: The sensation known as Relgious Experience (RE)

I think I agree with you here bill. Sight, Thoughts and these experiences seem real to us. I must say bill, this is very good stuff you posted and is it is the first real evidence against my stance of “the universe talking to us” that I have seen. I have to investigate the brain more, but your analy...

Re: The sensation known as Relgious Experience (RE)

Our personality is not inherited - it is a mix of life time experiences reacting with the underlying reflexes. And in acquiring our personality, we acquire our belief system. There is constant feed back from those we trust as infants (infants who have trust in elders tended to live longer in primiti...

Re: The sensation known as Relgious Experience (RE)

I can/will argue that these experiences are as real as any thought or even eyesight. They are not supernatural for two reasons. 1) By definition supernatural means unknown. Well, as you put it, they are partly known. 2) In my way of thinking god is not outside or separate from this universe. Why wou...

Re: First human settlement outside of Africa

Over simplify you say?

Could you tell me where to look for the original data? Or do you just mean the how the scientific fields such as archeology, biology, meteorology, and such, are working together?

Re: The sensation known as Relgious Experience (RE)

The classic question.

Two different children (different blood lines and family mannerisms). Taken out of their households and raised with the exact same experiences.

Are they the same person?

Re: chicken or the egg.

It may be rom, but it is an important question of both sides to look at. They are looking at the brain mechanism for memory storage. They think that a call for a neuro transmitter has actually changed the DNA. This is a very new Idea and is awaiting further study. The study is on the research channe...

Re: The sensation known as Relgious Experience (RE)

2 points caught my eye so far so I’ll start there. 1) Personality is not preprogrammed. I do not feel this is true, your personality may not be totally programmed but it has a fair amount of predisposition to it. A person who is “calm” versus one that is “excitable” also has to do with the brain’s p...

Re: Arsenic substitution for phosphorus

I didn't look at artc, but P has D orbitals that Ar don't. It reminds me of how people talk about Si in place of C, unless it is in a chip, it is not gona happen. Well, unless other goldilocks zones are found, but at increased temperatures electrons also leave. I don’t see “our chemistry” going on i...
