Yes it does. Unless you ignored the part where I said most people aren't scientists & can't understand the complex math behind it.

Those people don't understand the science, they just blindly follow what they've heard to be true.

I started posting on the site about 10 days ago. I now know that what I am going to say will mean nothing to most of you. While I appreciate the effort taken for all the responses, most of the chatter is rather cyclical. Round and round we go, where we stop nobody knows. Entertaining yes, thought provoking occasionally, mundane mostly. Don’t any of you get tired of that? I actually thought I would have debates, thought provoking banter or intellectual simulating conversations. What I found were self-centered narcissistic individuals more concerned about how their words impacted others to think like they do. I guess it is true, never talk about politics, religion or the weather. Humans are a weak and self-serving species.
Interesting and valid points, but toward the end of your post- no....weather is a SAFE topic to talk about- along with what is "unsafe"- politics and religion- is sex as an "unsafe" topic to talk about- LOL!

But as to your last sentence- very astute and all too true.

And yes....the chatter does become quite cyclical; for one thing, this thread is been going for 5 years or so and after well over half a million posts with no one having been successful regarding the topic at hand- Prove there's a god- this thread does tend to veer off topic and with much of what has been said before being repeated over and over again.

I will say that I have learned a lot in my time here if for no other reason than having done a lot of research to not only back up what I already knew, but to learn and discover new facts and new information on any number of issues that are somewhat related to the topic at hand- as well as learning much about other issues when this thread veers off course.

With that in mind, I also keep in mind that at the end of the day, very few people- if any at all- come away with thinking any differently or having any different opinions than when they first came on any of the threads on Topix.

So....taking Topix for what it is- a place to exchange ideas and opinions along with some very heated debates- it is quite amusing and entertaining and for many reasons.

Like Kenny says...know when ta hold 'em...know when ta fold 'em...know when ta walk away...know when ta run.
That's a great point, BT.

Are winning gamblers considered addicts?

The focus always seems to be on those gambling addicts that lose everything to gambling...

Let's change a few words here.....

"......most religious people aren't theologists and can't understand what they claim to believe or the absurdity of what they claim to believe or why what they believe is absurd.

Those people just blindly follow what they believe to be true- whatever book of faith it is that they choose to follow."

It's called blind FAITH for a reason, RR- never heard the expression "blind FACTS", though.....

Science and the new discoveries and expanding on those discoveries doesn't make science "wrong"; it simply means that the study of the sciences is an ongoing learning process as new evidence is discovered and learned.

One of my personal mottoes is: I realize the more I learn, the less I know.

I think that at least to some degree that can be applied to the sciences as well, for as soon as something is learned, the quest for more knowledge increases.

The same cannot be said for the bible or any other book of FAITH.

Point is that with very rare exception, the house always wins.

So are those who are successful in life regarding their relationships and their work but who also imbibe to excess alcoholics or at the very least people with a serious drinking problem? I would say yes- the difference being that they are highly functional alcoholics and I would say the same about gamblers who always win- they are highly functional gamblers.

That doesn't mean they don't have a gambling problem just the same.

Here are some of the ones I wanted to say; you believe the the prophet Lot committed incest.
Loy's daughters got him drunk, he didn't know they wanted children from him. But that was back when "keeping the family line" like that was customary. Lot wasn't the only father to impregnate his daughters.
Also in the bible it is said that the prophet Hud; during times of war he saw the wife of one of his men (sodiers) naked the moment she got out of her bath, throuhg his window.He got infatuated and amorous. The prophet Hud then sent that soldier at war, in order for him to die, thus marrying his wife. How can u permit this?


I did not permit that. But stories like that are one if the reasons God handed down the 10 Commandments.
Also when following the direct description of writings in the bible;about the earth instead of ending up with a spherical shape, we end up with a c-d/dvd shape. Those are some of the falsehood in the bible I remember for now.
Ugh, another flat earth thing? LMAO.

Who, in that time period, thought the earth was a sphere? Look up at the full moon, do you see a disc or a sphere? Look at a photo of Earth taken from space, do you see a disc or a sphere?

Do tell what war has not been caused by a government.

Who do you think starts or declares wars other than government?

BTW, nice how you were quick to criticize one site that Mylan cited while remaining conspicuously silent regarding religioustolerance.com ....

You sure about that?

"(RNS) Religiosity is on the decline in the U.S. and atheism is on the rise, according to a new worldwide poll.

The poll, called "The Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism," found that the number of Americans who say they are "religious" dropped from 73 percent in 2005 (the last time the poll was conducted) to 60 percent.

At the same time, the number of Americans who say they are atheists rose, from 1 percent to 5 percent.

The poll was conducted by WIN-Gallup International and is based on interviews with 50,000 people from 57 countries and five continents. Participants were asked, "Irrespective of whether you attend a place of worship or not, would you say you are a religious person, not a religious person, or a convinced atheist?"

The seven years between the polls is notable because 2005 saw the publication of "The End of Faith" by Sam Harris, the first in a wave of best-selling books on atheism by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett and other so-called "New Atheists."

"The obvious implication is that this is a manifestation of the New Atheism movement," said Ryan Cragun, a University of Tampa sociologist of religion who studies American and global atheism.

Still, Cragun does not believe the poll shows more people are becoming atheists, but rather that more people are willing to identify as atheists.

"For a very long time, religiosity has been a central characteristic of the American identity," he said. "But what this suggests is that is changing and people are feeling less inclined to identify as religious to comply with what it means to be a good person in the U.S."

Other findings from the poll include:

Besides Vietnam, Ireland had the greatest change in religiosity, down from 69 percent to 47 percent.

China has the most "convinced atheists," at 47 percent, followed by Japan (31 percent), Czech Republic (30 percent) and France (29 percent)

The most religious countries are in Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya), South America (Brazil, Peru) and Eastern Europe (Macedonia, Romania, Armenia).

Countries with the same percentage of atheists as the U.S. are Poland, Moldova and Saudi Arabia."

"America becoming less Christian, survey finds
RELIGION
March 09, 2009

Survey finds percentage of of Americans identifying themselves as Christian has fallen over two decades.

America is a less Christian nation than it was 20 years ago, and Christianity is not losing out to other religions, but primarily to a rejection of religion altogether, a survey published Monday found.

Seventy-five percent of Americans call themselves Christian, according to the American Religious Identification Survey from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. In 1990, the figure was 86 percent.

William Donohue, president of the Catholic League said he thinks a radical shift towards individualism over the last quarter-century has a lot to do it."

A perfect example of how you refuse to do your own research.

You admit to not knowing much about Scientology and you ask another poster what's so bad about it.

All you had to do was google "Scientology" to learn at least something about it without having had to ask anyone else about it.
