"Good try."

The teacher has a double standard. It’s ok for him to use improper grammar but it’s not ok for me.

How did your friend figure the strength of a supposed 26,000 year old woman?
PUUHHH-LEASE
You honestly know next to nothing about this stuff, hey?

It's easy: you look at the bone density, muscle attachment sites and joint sizes.

Strong muscles compress bones, increasing the density (you see this not only in the mass of the bone, but in the cellular structure). Muscle attachment sites are either large (powerful muscles) or small (weak). Joints are mechanical in nature; there are mathematical relationships between the size of the parts and how much force they can take.

The above is how we know that neanderthals were so strong, they could crush the bones of your hand with a handshake. They were stronger than contemporaneous humans - but the woman my friend dug up was a human.

Near death experience. Doesn't count. Nothing even vaguely supernatural happens in reality, but upon dying -yahoo!- the metaphysical carnival begins. Hope you reincarnate in Camden, New Jersey.

Yup. Naive... That's all you've got? Because I'm for from naive, young man. I look at things objectively, I don't blindly follow like you people do.
You're pretty naive about science and religion. Look at your comments - you actually believe that your inability to imagine something and your lack of knowledge of something are arguments against that thing.

They're not. It just means you don't know what you're talking about (defining features of ignorant and naive).

But seriously please forgive my rudeness and insensitivity.
I'm really much more chivalrous than that. I feel as though I bruised my honor though unintentionally.
It's all good, don't worry about it. I've already forgotten about it.

MartinaSirDoc would be pretty happy then!

It's really quite simple. Death scares the shit out of you, so you'll cling to anything that will ameliorate the fear. Nothing new here.

The mussies what to make an international law, that I cannot blaspheme their mythology! The same people who flew planes into our buildings, killing over 3,000 innocent people, what to make a fu[king law! KMA!

A group who thinks that they have the right to shoot a little girl, to force rape victims to marry their rapists, to stone little girls to death for wearing makeup! KMA!

They may have the freedom to speak, but they cannot and will not get their way.

How does the man know that what he experienced was while his cortex was shut down?

He doesn't.

For him to claim that his observation was medically or scientifically supported is a joke.

You have to know that one man's personal experience means nothing.

It's funny that his journey through the afterlife did not depart too far from the common christian conception of the afterlife. Clouds, angels, answers, love, etc...

I believe the argument was that rap music is used to control the populace. So no.
