Atheist Islamophobia... Again

There are 3766 comments on the Religion Dispatched story from Apr 9, 2013, titled Atheist Islamophobia... Again. In it, Religion Dispatched reports that:

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

Depends on exactly what you mean here. I am inclined to the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics and I acknowledge the possibility of causally closed pieces budding off of a deSitter spacetime via quantum fluctuations.

[QUOTE]Are electrons particles or waves?"

Wrong question. They are neither classical particles nor classical waves. They *are* quantum particles, which have a wave structure.

You are wrong!
Quantum Theory says that observation creates reality.
Only in out-dated, popularized treatments. In actuality, the quantum world *is* real. It just doesn't follow the philosophical doctrine of realism.

Second, the 'collapse of the wave function', that under the Copenhagen interpretation is achieved by consciousness is now known to be caused by interaction with the environment. The term now is decoherence. Also, the decoherence is closely related to the increase in entropy and the second law of thermodynamics.
That meant that if no one is observing then realtor died not exist!!!
Consciousness is not required, only interaction. And anything macroscopic will be interacting with its environment in the ways required for decoherence.

Even physicists that believe in God know what I said is correct. Classical ideas are simply wrong. Electrons, photons, protons, etc are *quantum* particles and quantum particles have a wave characteristic (actually, a probability wave characteristic). That is *reality*.

God hasn't been in any equations, ever. Adding deities to explanations is the ultimate mumbo-jumbo.

<quoted text>Typical propagandistic speech to boost morale.

Why do you think it has ANYTHING to do with the creation of Israel?

Let me give you an example of a *real* prediction of the future.

On August 21, 2017 there will be a total eclipse of the sun. The path of totality will sweep across the continental US, starting in Oregon and ending in South Carolina. It will have a maximum duration of 2 minutes, 40 seconds in western Kentucky, where it totality starts at 18:25:29 UT.

Do you see the difference? The 'prediction' in your Bible has no specifics, is very vague, could potentially apply to *any* conflict and is typical of morale boosting speeches. The scientific one is specific in details, including time, location, duration, etc. There is no room to 'interpret' via your personal delusions.

So, as far as predictions go, your Bible loses badly.
Actually it predicts the exact date, day and year!!!

But you had chosen darkness over light so I will not bother to show you the truth!

The problem, of course, is that the calculations of string theory have not been tested in the real world. The overall theory is very pretty, but whether it describes reality is another question. And, even *if* string thoery is correct, those extra dimensions are *small*.

Einstein was specifically talking about acceleration due to gravity. Acceleration due to other forces is quite easy to distinguish from gravity. And, how exactly is that relevant here?

Do you see how you are fighting God?

When science proves God you RATIONALIZE the explanation l!

We can prove God on many fronts. It is you and the likes of you that fight a real God.

God can be proven philosophically, geographically, archeologically, astronomically, historically, economically, legally, sociologically, etc.

For example:(yes I has been proven tons of examples you refuse to accept, here is another one for you to reject)

I can show you how the Bible predicted the birth of Israel several thousand years ago, to the EXACT day: May 15, 1948.

Grant Jeffrey - Mathematical Prophecy
Grant Jeffrey explains through Leviticus 26:18 the mathematics in Bible Prophecy of how Israel would be Born as a nation again on May 15th 1948. Interesting.

Starting with the first video below (Part 4) through Part 6. If you're looking for the immediate Prophecy that's proven through the Matematics of the Bible, which also stunned Atheists, please position your mouse 7.03 Mins into the first video (Part 4), and watch the rest of the videos from there. If you're crunched for time.

Ezekiel was given an astonishingly accurate prophetic vision about the rebirth of the nation of Israel that would occur in the spring of 1948, as detailed in chapter 3. He foretold that Israel would arise miraculously from the graveyard of the nations, where she was buried with the ruins of Jerusalem in a.d. 70 by the Roman army led by Titus. Incredibly, God promised that the Jews, after almost two thousand years of exile, would return to the Promised Land. The ancient prophets also foretold that the Jewish exiles would become "a mighty army" in her ancient homeland. In 1948, Israel triumphed against an invasion by six well-armed Arab armies. Israel's military forces consisted of a small, voluntary citizen army composed of unskilled farmers and scholars who were equipped with inadequate weapons, a few jeeps, and two small airplanes. Israel's armored force consisted of several vehicles captured from her enemies, including trucks with improvised steel plates. Yet, like David's miraculous victory over Goliath, God supernaturally intervened to allow a weak Israel to survive and prosper, defeating her Arab enemies against incredible odds.

And *this* is your standard of evidence? Vague prophesies that are twisted to say what people want? No wonder you have trouble understanding actual science.

Three-Dimensional printers.

The first step in a technology that one day may change manufacturing forever-- right now, these things are fragile and mostly used to prototype stuff, or to create intricate moldings that is later replaced with metal in a "lost wax" casting method.

But 3D printing has some really interesting promise-- imagine replacing the plastic matrix with biological-active collagen, and active stem-cells...

... you could potentially "print" a new liver or heart or kidney for someone, using their own stem cells and biologically-inert but active collagen (no rejection at all).

Then zap the thing with ERV's to make the stem cells "turn into" the appropriate tissue-cells....

... "instant" replacement organs-- exact match to the person's DNA-- zero chance of rejection.

.....!!!

I wonder: could you make a replacement brain that way?

You know... to fix these brain-damaged godbots?
