<quoted text>Different extinction events have different causes. The Mesozoic/Cenozoic boundary was caused by a massive meteor hit. We even know where the crater is.
But how can you verify this absolutely?
There may have been a massive meteor hit, there may have been many meteor hits of similar size. They may have caused extinctions at various times or may not have any part or a primary role in them.
But if there were extinctions then what did/were the new advanced life forms based on or 'evolved' from?
Example....
Windows 8 is the latest version of the operating system which was based on Windows 7, XP, 2000, ME, 98 etc. If one or two of those versions were done away with as if they never existed, codes, libraries and all. Then what would the current system be based on if not the previous ones?
It would have to be coded and programmed by someone who could fortell the result of new operating systems with libraries etc.
It would take a designer who had an overview of the future, its results and the interaction of all components.

<quoted text>Good stories to hold a group of people together. No actual Exodus ever happened.
There is the story of the Exodus which is not disputed by anyone but the atheists, up until this time there never has been an 'anti exodus' story and never has actually been done because there is no evidence to say that the Exodus never happened.

<quoted text>Belief in a golden age in the past?
The Greeks and Italians will refer to Alexander the Great and the Roman empire as a historical golden age, but those golden ages were based on physical achievements such as empire building not the metaphysical practices as done by the ancient jews.

<quoted text>
Because our brain models ourselves in its analysis of the world.
This implies that the brain is independent of any judgmental process one currently adheres to. If the brain constantly changes then so too will the personality of the one who acts according to the brain.
The sense of right and wrong would change without any previous reference to the sense once held by the persona. In this sense that would be saying that a person who commits an evil act would not be responsible for that act, which is enough to be declared insane. But as shown by trials of criminals they chose to act in such a manner even though they knew there would be repercussions and knew that their acts would be regarded as evil but they were motivated by material gain whether in monetarial or sexual satisfaction sense.

I am not sure what 'free will' actually means, but it is probably an illusion from having so many different projected futures.
<quoted text>
Referring to the above post, take the example of where adults murder children and then claim they were 'crazy'. If they were truly crazy they would do something like try and kill an entire football team armed only with a carrot, but they chose children because they knew it was an easy target.
In other words they made a conscious decision to attack someone they knew was utterly defenceless against them, they had foresaw the result of that attack against that victim.

Activities have value depending on how they promote the well-being and self-fulfillment of people.

Humans are the ones making the value judgments, so yes.

The well-being and fulfillment of humans. The basic rules are: think and care.

Partly. It is also partly because I have studied that time period and know it was an incredibly superstitious time where people believed in many different 'mystery religions', often with baptisms, gods as people, and personal redemption. Christianity was only one of many such religions at that time.
All your responses contain the fallacy of blending a fundamental concept of a creating force with the strictures of religion.

These are different concepts. You use easy arguments against the latter concept as proxies for argument against the more difficult former.

It's a common sign of a lazy intellect.

There is no "fundamental concept of a creating force" you idiotic moron.

Did you copy and paste that out of some creationist's website?

For it's obvious you are clueless as to the meaning of the words.

It looks like you really can't get over the fact that you have no proof of god and are a lying sack of sh*t.

There are many things Siro cannot get over.

Mainly because he'd need a working brain, to begin the effort at all...

We are a social species, so compassion is an emotion most of us share.
Compassion is not an emotion per se, it is a judgment that has come about as a result of ones moral and logical decisions and choices. People will risk their own lives and financial gain is they can help someone else if they can relate to that person in that situation. A believer will help a person because they view human life as the highest value on this earth, it is a moral belief that is black and white.
Whereas an atheist who has moral relativism/amorality would most likely let someone drown rather than ruin an expensive suit or watch because to them the value of their physical possessions are of more value than a physical human life.
As for the social species bit?
People relate to people on a personality/intellectual/spiri tual level - not purely physical. People are more likely to get involved in violent confrontations with people of the same race and social class they are in as the inmates of prisons show.
