I don't know how "you" explain conscience ...(knowing the difference betwixt right and wrong)
You mean Schrodinger's cat Godbot ... has nothing to do with it.

Right = good for the species. Wrong = bad for the species. The basics are programmed into us by evolution, same as most other creatures. Momma Nature's #1 priority is keeping your genes in the pool (yeah, even your unworthy genes). You can't do that if you're dead, killed by a covetous neighbor for your marbles or by an angry, dishonored parent. We, of course, with our amazing brains ... have managed to make it far more complicated. Think about it.

Hey just for the heck of it I looked at your profile and I see you like the outdoors. Fishing is something I enjoy and was wondering what type of fishing you have done. As far as what I posted, it has been a battle with me and Givethemliberty. Not necessarily about you.
I grew up fishing for bass along the edges of weed beds in quiet, still East Texas lakes. It's as close as I'll ever get to anything like Heaven. I live near Galveston Bay which offers a hot, gritty parody of that experience. I use light tackle for both and whether Bass or Speckled Trout ... no matter, it is a battle worth fighting.

I've "followed" the thread for some time and I dunno ... seems you're hitting below the belt. I would expect a little more restraint from someone wearing a "WWJD" bracelet. Kindness and "turning the other cheek" seem fundamental to your ancient magician's philosophy. Atheists, of course, are not so encumbered. When Godbots abandon civility you're really flushing what little "good" there is in your religion down the tubes.

Fishing is amazing and peaceful. I have been to Galveston but never had the chance to do some fishing. I did go to Guaymace Mexico and fished for Marlin. That was quite the experience! I also have a friend that lives in Alaska and he tells me that fishing over there is amazing. I love to fish, it's very peaceful!

I've never done any Big Game fishing. I do enjoy getting out in the "Blue Water" ... a term for getting out 10+ miles in the Gulf where the water clears up. My chances to do so are few and far between. The nature of the experience changes when you get out of sight of land. Becomes more of an adventure and less of a fishing trip.

You are right, when you are out there it is an adventure. Largemouth Bass is also an adventure. Honestly, I sometimes like to just sit, fish, eat beef jerky and have some beer when fishing. So relaxing.

It's arguable rather existence is a gift worthy of thanks. We have an internal dialog roiling constantly inside our heads. It's called "thinking" and it is our curse. With your poor vision and pattern baldness ... nature would have quickly eliminated you from the herd. I think you owe a debt of gratitude to what modern humans call "liberals". I must admit, trapping a powerful mind in a fishes body would be one of the kind of jokes your god-creature would enjoy. Nature is not so capricious.

BTW ... the point of "Schrodinger's Cat" is the indeterminacy of physical states (cat in box) which change as a response to our trying to measure them. Random events are susceptible to statistical analysis which does not change the outcome. Random events are therefore not indeterminate in the strictest sense. Your god-creature, by supposedly possessing omnipotence and having predetermined everything, renders our human endeavors to understand the Universe pointless. All hail his mighty name.

...Nature ...is an UNHOLY BITCH...this is well documented ..!!!!

Nah....Liberals..tend to support abortion ...I'll thank the Jewish moral code given to us by our forefathers ....Thank-you very much..!!

Life is difficult .....for everyone....but, put yourself in a precarious position ....and , watch that "will to live" kick in like a turbo fueled speed trial ..at the Bonneville Salt Flats....

Actually, it's an important point with implications in biology, evolution and human origins. Wouldn't make a bad Mantra.

Sentience is not the point of evolution. Adapting a creature to it's environment so that it can live and pass on it's DNA is the point of evolution. Sentience may be the worst thing Momma Nature's ever come up with. Evolution's successes proliferate, mistakes die out. Where are we on that curve?

...Well, that didn't go as planned ...you went off on your own tangent ...turd maker..

I was describing every nano second of our existences ...is reaffirmed by our Creator ...when, we examine how matter behaves at the sub-atomic level ......

Well you comprehend the power of (God-creator)...He is not a creature ..(semantics)..
The cosmos are created ..plumbing their secrets ..is in no way pointless .....it's boring (and expensive) to be sure ...but, in a existence of "free will" ....it is "not" pointless ...
