Conscious energy forming the brain vibrates at a frequency that comes under the purview of quantum processes. Higher dimensions of conscious energy exceed quantum mechanics.

rabbee: so you are calling TheG-D of Only TheTorah a liar. with your being the liar, saying that. so that everything you say, must be false when compared to G-D. in a world of about 7 billion liars, considering themselves truer than G-D. i wonder from whom, they all got that from? cause it sure did not come from G-D, here in TheTorah.

A religious fanatic - a prisoner of scripture!
Christians call themselves "prisoners". II Tim. 2:26 "And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will". Isaiah 14:17 also predicts this "...that opened not the house of his prisoners?" The Truth will set you free.

Moral values don't stem from religion but from the from the emergent properties of human consciousness under evolutionary urges. The greater the degree of consciousness manifested in a sentient system, the higher will be the emergent moral values that accompany it.

But seriously, it is like any good parent, the object is to make the kids able to stand on their own. Hence the rise in atheism, as humans outgrow the need for Divine handholding.

The morality that springs from religion is awful and is invariably conditional and based on the carrot and stick policy.

Incorrect on most counts.

Your Math, Physics and Chem suck but so does your English.

Here is the list of questions:

CHOOSE THE CORRECT VERB FORM GIVING REASONS:

1) Gold as well as silver is/are expensive.

2) Bread and butter is/are eaten at breakfast.

3) The news is/are being read on TV.

4) Jack with his dog is/are walking in the garden.

5) Either the boys or the girl is/are crying.

ANSWERS WITH EXPLANATIONS:

1) The subjects joined by the conjunctional phrase "as well as" is taken in the singular and so the correct verb form would be IS:

Gold as well as silver is expensive.

2) Bread and butter form a single subject (one without the other is incomplete) and so a singular subject takes a singular verb. The correct verb would be IS:

Bread and butter is eaten at breakfast.

3) Here, news is taken to mean one news capsule and so the subject is singular and the accompanying verb will also be singular (IS).

The news is being read on TV.

4) Jack with his dog is taken as a singular subject and so the singular subject would take a singular verb which would be IS.

On the other hand, if the sentence were to include Jack and his dog...then the subject would be plural - Jack and dog - and as such the verb would be plural as ARE:

Jack with his dog is walking in the garden.

5) When a sentence includes either/or there has to exist 2 subjects but the verb form would depend on the subject next to the second conjunction or. In the given sentence, the second subject girl next to or is singular and so even though the first subject in the same sentence which is boys is plural yet the verb would be singular (since the second subject girl is singular and lies next to the second conjunction or).

Either the boys or the girl is crying.

On the other hand,

If the second subject were to be plural - "girls" - then the verb would take a plural form:

Either the boy or the girls are crying.

QM vacuum is "nothing" since in it there're no real particles, no space, no time, no laws of physics (as we know them in 4-dimensional space-time which is our universe). This qm "nothing" is a concentrate of em waves and virtual particles in a state of.

Nondualism is the exclusive preserve of the highest intellectuals in a mental way and the rarest of individuals experience some degree or the fullest nondualism via the union in conscious-energy of the subject with the object.

Maybe the same can happen with the religion called government.

People who form the government can be dishonest. Government, at the national level, is administrators using infrastructure and/or laws to run a nation. So, some form of governing body has always existed and will always exist. Wishful thinking cannot do away with the need for government.

Religion has steadily been destroyed by advances in quantum physics, cosmology, genetics, evolution, neuroscience and noetic science/mind-matter studies. What's left for religion, now? Nothing, except blind faith and fanaticism! ROFL.

Yes, cattle class pretty much sums up the experience. However, it is still better than driving, and for that, I appreciate it, moo or no moo.

Welcome back,(papa).

I missed you.

Hope you had a nice hunting trip - how many birds/animals/worms/insects/re ptiles did you shoot?

Did you "hunt" handsome young boys as well?(smiles)

Yesterday, during a medical checkup, your name spontaneously arose in my mind and I used that as a support to deflect attention from the painful injections and yes I barely felt any discomfort...

In the past, I would think of my loving Mom during times of difficulty and then later it was that evil sorcerer. Yesterday, it was you. Thank you.
