Your ignorance is very obvious, as soon as you say shit like a S L O W explosion, we know you are completely scientifically illiterate.
Stop embarrassing yourself and read a science book, anyone will do!!
Guess what......i know the time it takes Pluto to go around the sun, and I know that the moon is not made of green cheese. Ask me how I know such things!!!!! It must real suck to be so completely and utterly ignorant. I often wonder why one of the ten commandments doesn't include something about being willfully ignorant......"Thou shalt not remain willfully ignorant."
No thanks. I swore off 900 numbers.

So love cannot be an invention of man.
Why not?
Because it exists not only with man, but outside of and independently of man, and has no terms or calculations recognizable to man. Man has no negotiating or bargaining power with it; he cannot manipulate it. Man can experience it, and that's all.

That's wrong, and not even science.

An organism reproducing does not tell us where the organism came from, i.e., its genesis. Evolution "alters" a thing, it doesn't "produce" it.

Nobody should ask you to explain something.

Yes it is!

I would say religion = organized superstition

Have you noticed - It is the most disturbed and brainwashed pseudo Christians that post in these forums. Weak minded, frightened and delusional, they seek imagined redemption via endless circular arguments using their Bible as 'evidence'.

I have yet to encounter one true believer that has read this silly book.

They imagine they 'Know the unknowable', adopt a holier than thou attitude, and provide laughter for atheists.

Pascal's wager doesn't even work for Christians.

There are thousands of denominations each with unique soteriologies and eschatologies. So that your choice is much less than 1 in 10000, it's 1 in 10000 times the number of denominations or ... possibly God wants people who are not in any denomination or perhaps his name is Allah.

That an adult human being would find Pascal's wager in any way compelling speaks volumes about that person but little about the validity of the argument.

That gray mushy thing sitting on your desk? The one you use as Playdough and as a sex toy?

That is supposed to go into your skull. That is what it was designed for.

I would suggest giving it a good washing before installing it correctly, though.

Not logical, BlackBuffoon.
As you are not all-knowing, you cannot conclude that allowing suffering for a wisp of time on this little planet is more or less "loving" than not allowing it. You may have an opinion, but you do not "know".
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." -Hamlet to Horatio
Hamlet is pointing out how little even the most educated people can explain.
Your argument falls even shorter than "not explaining", as your premise is illogical and, thus, invalid.
Welcome to Buck School.
Hamlet ~ "Alas, poor YorBuck! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy."

Hamlet is pointing out that the King's Jester, YorBuck, is now just a moldering skull held by a clown.

I have taken a new job in a part of SA that can accurately be described as "rural". Getting access to ADSL is quite a mission. Furthermore, moving here cost quite a pretty penny, and I have not summoned the ADSL guys yet, I have too many other expenses.

Double Fine is infinitely humbled by all of your concern. Hope you all are doing well. I will check back some time.

See, we're waiting for the facts, you are the one who has speculated and accepted a non-answer based on an assumption that's not only impossible to test, it's impossible to define. Thus, we'll wait until the people a lot smarter than you figure something out, then we'll learn it, study it, and see if we can poke holes in the actual ... data.

When things produce, they evolve ... a little bit at a time. So yes, the fact that they evolve is what produced the diversity of organisms.
