Then we should stop teaching evolution as well since it is in reality a religion. It takes inordinate amounts of faith to believe that we spontaneously came into existence from inanimate matter. And no matter how much the scientists tout their evidence promoting evolution, when it is looked upon in the grand scale their evidence is minuscule and pathetically flimsy. Freedom of religion is truly freedom of religion only when it includes all creation theories.
LOL! It only took 27 minutes for somebody to provide an excellent example.

A frailty of the religious argument against a rational universe is that many appear to have no concept of a world view that does not revolve around emotional faith. Is there some structure of the brain that inhibits critical analysis and error checking? Is the very idea that someone does not replace a faith in God with something else literally unthinkable to them? Maybe that group should seek protection through the first amendment AND the ADA.

He, he and him, a bit full of yourself are ya, did not know the spirit world was concerned with male and female labels, does that mean you male christians will be in charge or is the bibles rules invalid in heaven?

You know , I really fear going to He11 but , what I also fear , is that I will be there with so many other stupid people. Know living thru life with them tends to be enough, but spending eternity with those , who are uncaring, or just plain stupid , sort of drives me to try to change. I said stupid, knowing better but will not see different.
"the fearful", did you know the lake of fire awaits.

Actually I see it as a bit more than chance.. It's the product of self assembly of particles with inertial mass that produce em waves through the remainder of the quanta of energy that the particles with inertial mass converted from, through the process of gravitational attraction and em wave form heterodyneing forming ever more complex structures over the period of 16 billion years or more... And it's Not Faith... It's My postulate based on evidence and understanding of the principles involved, subject to change at any point new evidence is found, verified, validated and shown testable... Faith has nothing to do with it..
What drives you to study all this to the point that you have? Do you feel that in some way you may attain immortality through it all? If not why would someone work so hard to understand something as complex as all that is if it's only temperary and only fulfills the very few who have the ability to understand it and the time to study and learn it all in the first place, not to mention being able to afford it. All in the Name of "We have no purpose Here".

Its called education, try some, it will be enlightening.

It just shows how people have changed , since the 60 70s the bible was at School , & the teacher read a verse each morn, but NOW they dont , people get back to God, & things will be much better.

The Lake of Fire awaits those who believe they have no purpose. Those who are educated beyond their capacity to believe that we are no more than evolved pond scum. Those who have convinced themselves that it is better to seek thyself rather than love thy neighbour. Are you one of these people?, that is between you and your creator, and if you do not have one, what can you possibly hope or expect to receive other than a crushing black hole somewhere in the distant future from which nothing can escape.

It's still right where it was... We have been slamming particles together for over half a century.. There were a very few that thought a microscopic black hole could form but I didn't... As you might have figured out if you actually read my postulate I have a different view of the physical universe from consensus... I think it's not what we perceive it to be... It is far simpler... And I can count one prediction I made as being verified and second prediction that was just given a theoretical thumbs up when a paper was produced showing that it may be possible to exceed c without infinite energy as stated in the Einstein solution for inertial mass energy conversion... I contend that exceeding the value of c requires almost no energy, The only energy required is that needed to act in opposition to gravitational well of a quantum connected inertial mass object causing it to become massless relative to all other matter in the universe...

Where does the bible say that?

kjv revelation 21;8
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. O ye with no purpose shall taste not life but death in a crushing black hole.

Lol, reminds me of the story, a man was killed when his woman, rolled onto him in the middle of the night.

By the way good to see you can type and not just copy and paste bible verses.

It's very simple... I like it... I have a desire to learn anything about anything I can.... I want to know how everything in the universe works... And who the heck said we have no purpose here, Not I... Our purpose, in my view, is survival of the species... That can only happen if we gain knowledge and find a way off this tiny ball of rock and water.... Humanity will end if we are forever stuck here... Even moving a small colony to a planet as close as Mars increases the survivability of humanity many fold.. Sooner or later this rock will be smacked by another rock, sooner or later this rock will burb and evolution will reset... It has happened 12 times in the past where from 75% to 90% of all life was wiped and what was left had to go forth and multiply... But a few hundred survivors to re-seed could be a major jump start on keeping Humanity alive...

Individually we set our own individual purposes, Mine is to learn all I can about everything I can for as long as I can and pass it along in case someone in the future might find it useful... And to take some pretty pictures and enjoy my life to it's fullest while doing the right things when no one is looking... As a Species We have the purpose of surviving and evolving to the point that we can spread out and survive a violent universe....

Doing what is best for the vast majority not 4% of the people, majority rules voting, NO ruling class or nobility, NO elite class that have rights that no one else has.
You know, what made America great!
I can agree with most of this, especially the first bits about roads and libraries and education. I would personally add that all healthcare should be funded through tax dollars via a universal system.

But I would be very cautious about advocating a simple majority rules voting system. At any given time the majority of Americans are likely to believe in strange things and have dangerous ideas about how to treat the minority of Americans.

Plus our emotions run us in the short term. The day after 09/11/01 if you took a vote we'd have launched nukes at SOMEBODY.
