HughBe---I see, your science is based on evolution and not on verifiable, replicable and objective things.
It seems to me that it is sheer FAITH.
Frijoles---I must have missed this post.
HughBe--- Not only the post but the point.
Frijoles---I have a hard time believing at times that you went to college.
HughBe--- I am a UNIVERSITY graduate and not a college graduate.
Still have a hard time believing you had an advanced education. Did you ever take a science class?

They are converts for whatever reason but it is certaily NOT scientific.
So, now that you have defined religion, your next project is to redefine science?

I'm not buying it. No more than I buy into your other definitions.

What comes to mind is a tiny minnow trying to swim upstream. Noble thought. But utterly useless, futile, and waste of all time.

Not according to mental health professionals.
I tend to hold their opinion on the issue in higher regard than one who speaks in tongues and]

Former, These same type of"mental health professionals" determined that slaves running away from their masters was do to a mental illness, what scientific methods do you think they used to conclude that?

For what it's worth -- I'm a firm believer in the process of evolution. It makes sense that G-d would create a universe where his organisms are able to improve themselves on a molecular level.

G-d works smart, not hard.

It just seems, that in the case of places like Topix, the process G-d implemented at the creation might not be working so well.

Evolution works in mysterious ways.

Good observation.
Though I have sat through many a sermon over the Jewish High Holidays (when traditionally these passages are examined) where the speaker discusses how troubled they are over that one.
Myself, I was more troubled by that story BEFORE I became a parent.
LOL...I hear you.

A profession of quacks should not be trusted, so i have heard that psychiatrists have extremely high suicide rates, one would expect as much with quacks.

rabbee: well i believe in, mental evolution only - for or against G-D. and topix is proof of it, going in the other way.

physical evolution, is just an unproven and improvable myth so far. the attempts at scientific observation of this in a laboratory environment, have all miserably failed to support the myth. yet they teach it as a scientific fact, when it is no where near fact.

and most people forgot that fact, that G-D only loves those who love THEM. and all the rest, can go to non-GanEden hell. and well here we, all are again. no different than the last two times, the whole world and their grandmother all went to hell.

cause there is no way, any of you can convince me. we are, all in GanEden today. and that does not leave, a hell of a lot of other choices left.

Apparently, so do dentists. Do you also eschew the practice of dental hygiene?

Well, Abraham set the bar pretty high for obeying "God".
Well, you said that in jest but it's a misleading statement. that can create wrong ideas in the minds of the gullible where this monster called Abraham is concerned.

Abraham lowered the bar with his perverted behavior.

He practiced incest, was a liar, indulged in blood rituals like animal sacrifices and circumcision, was willing to enact a human sacrifice at the behest of his god, served as a pimp and so on.

There's not a single word or action of his that can be called averagely enlightened.

He's a poor role model and will attract perverts into his fold.

Think before you post.

IRONY ABOUT GENES:

1) Ironically, the science of genetics that's hailed as an end all and a be all to explain every facet of a living system by scientists is highly incomplete as it offers no clear-cut genetic mechanisms where emotional and psychological traits are concerned.

2) Physical traits can be explained using genes as the causative factors.

3) Logically speaking, the psychological, emotional and physical traits of ancestors via our immediate parents get transmitted into zygote but while physical characteristics can be traced to chemical units called genes no one has any idea about emotional and psychological transferences from parents to offspring.

4) Where are the genes for intelligence, hatred, love, nurturing instinct, sense of responsibility and other sentient traits?

5) Besides, science has no clue regarding the impact of sentient factors like emotional and mental states on matter (body) though emotions/mind states can be altered within limits by drugs and em fields. This is on account of the close interactions between emotional and mental states with matter.

So, we can logically surmise that emotional and psychologicalL traits exceed chemical configurations but are causally linked to the genes as inhering and at times influencing factors in view of the close nexus between mind-matter.

LOL.

Cops also have high rates of substance abuse, divorce, suicide.

Probably more the nature of the job.

Psychiatrists? I thought we were talking about the mental health profession?

A mental health professional is a health care practitioner who offers services for the purpose of improving an individual's mental health or to treat mental illness. This broad category includes psychiatrists (D.O. or M.D.), clinical psychologists (Psy.D or Ph.D.), clinical social workers (MSW or MSSW), psychiatric nurses, mental health counselors, professional counselors, pharmacists, as well as many other professionals. These professionals often deal with the same illnesses, disorders, conditions, and issues; however, their scope of practice differs. The most significant difference between mental health professionals are the laws regarding required education and training across the various professions.[1]https://en.wiki pedia.org/wiki/Mental_health_p rofessional

RIDDLE OF COLLECTIVE DEATH:

A) Karma is work done by the consciousness-energy in an individualized system of a living being.

B) Destiny is the effect on the system of the workings of the individualized field of consciousness-energy.

..........

1) Death is brought about by senescence, accidents, poisoning, suicide and undue stress when the body can no longer support the indwelling consciousness and energy fields.

2) What is the reason behind collective death when a number of people die at the same time, in the same place and due to the same cause which say could be an earthquake or an air crash? Neither science nor religion has a logical answer.

3) Obviously, a causative factor based on the law of affinity with its roots in consciousness-energy and karma brings about collective death.

4) Could it be that the force fields of these people who died together in say an air crash vibrated at the same frequency whose effect translated as collective death with others in whose force fields were manifested the same frequency inviting physical destruction and the subsequent disembodiment of their respective indwelling consciousness and energy?



5) Or could it be that one or two individuals of the group set off perverse (destabilizing) vibes that infected the others in the group leading to their collective deaths? While those in the same group of people whose force fields and body were resilient enough survived the accident.

Well, well, well.

LOW QUALITY OF AMERICAN GRADS:

FRIJOLES, COR, FORMER, RABBEE and other Americans here can hardly be called intelligent nor do they have a sound grasp on the fundamentals of math/science which is expected with these posters evidently having achieved advanced degrees in scientific disciplines from third rate colleges or universities.

Leaving these born dunces aside, I am always amazed to discover that most American students even from their best universities fail to understand basic concepts in math and science and are mere talkers than problem solvers - using language they try to explain math/science questions but when it comes to pinning down the problem in equations and formula they're at a dead end and even where their verbal explanations are concerned they show a terrible lack of understanding of fundamental concepts accompanied by the supported math.
Most of their professors are the same.

I've met several such low quality American students/profs during my student days at IIT and during trips abroad and am always shocked at their pathetic understanding of key concepts and poor math skills.
