Yes, it's fine by me. I don't give a shit what people do.
I still consider it a sin, though.
But that's their choice.
They can have it.
Whenever a Christian quotes Leviticus to say that homosexuality is wrong or forbidden or whatever they say, know that they're biblically and historically ignorant.
When I first made a post yesterday, you ignored it, probably because you didn't have the confidence to continue with me attacking you, and you backed down, thinking that perhaps I was going to post only for a small amount of time, going in and out again.

But no, were you wrong, I'm here to stay, BOY!

It's no fallacy, it's the truth. Convicts like to make people think they've "found God" in prison. They do this because they think it'll help them in court, with an early release, etc.
I find it off that you "rational" people believe the convicts when they try to say that they're Christian.
They'll spew any lie that they think will support their argument. So much for rational thought, using lies.

Actually, I was born again at a very calm and peaceful time in my life.

You should stop generalizing and stereotyping, it's not healthy.

I see- so you are saying that Benjamin Franklin spoke "psychobabble" bullshit, huh?

Sorry, RR- but TRULY knowing oneself is difficult IF one is not daunted by being HONEST with themselves.

Of course, you have proven here countless times over that you are not only mentally challenged, but emotionally challenged and intellectually challenged as well, in addition to not being anywhere near 100% honest with yourself.

I believe that God created every person for a purpose, and until we begin to live Christ like and to really learn about ourselves then we may have difficulty finding that purpose or in some cases never find it. This includes loving people, forgiving people, not judging others, not being full of pride, helping others less fortunate, showing compassion and often having to put other's needs before our own. This is hard to do when someone has wronged you, or taken advantage of you, lied to you, etc., but I do believe that it's God's way.
Whether there is "God" or not, that should be our way, atheist and theist alike. I hear there are atheist churches popping up everywhere. They may not talk about God there but I bet that, minus "God", they have a similar message. Whether there is "God" or not, the "commandment", wait, let's call it a virtue or value, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" should hold true. It really blows my mind how easily it is for humans throughout the ages to have put aside the thought of "what if it were me in that position?" as they take pleasure in causing or observing someone else's pain. That seems the biggest tragedy.

That one virtue alone could maybe change the world if everyone would stick to it.

These jerks are the worst kind of hypocrites.
Oh ya, they love opinions. They love people that have opinions. And they love the expression of opinion.

As long as you have the same opinion as them.

Then you ca freethink with them all day long.

Hey STUPID- it was another poster who quoted Neitzsche but who didn't know who wrote what was quoted- I simply did a google search to come up with the author.

Though in ANOTHER post, I did quote Neitzsche- who what you say notwithstanding, was a brilliant philosopher in many respects.

Umm.....that you attempt to mock that he suffered a mental breakdown is in keeping with what a "charitable" person you truly are.....after all, you are the same person who mocks those who are senile and/or have to wear diapers.

You so suck that it's really disgustingly pathetic, you silly lil CUNNY.

<quoted text>Again, where there is brain, there is also a quantum reality. Those "hundreds of experiments" have no way of differentiating between a molecular or a quantum mechanism for consciousness. Non whatsoever.
If consciousness is quantum then the molecular brain is just the "hardware", and when a person falls into a coma, they are then "braindead" but not without consciousness; and what this means is that if this case were true then we do not understand consciousness. Heck even if consciousness is molecular we still don't have the faintest idea as to the mechanism. "A bunch of molecules get together" is not a theory.
Another point; if consciousness is quantum and the hardware shuts down, then "consciousness" can only respond to a quantum stimulus.
You really think Roger Penrose and colleagues are that stupid? Top physicists we're talking about here. Why would they entertain micro-tubule quantum hypotheses of consciousness if consciousness is as clear as you say? Seriously. We're not talking about "God" here, we're talking about science.
What you are talking about is pure speculation, without a single point of evidence to back it up. Of course theoretical physicists do this , and some of them speculate about totally worthless endeavors.

Big effin deal. That ain't hard to do and that sure ain't a life long journey....
Before one can do any of that, one must know themselves FIRST.

Leave it to you to put the cart before the horse.

Sorry but you're wrong- AGAIN. One's entire life is a journey of self-discovery from start to finish.

At least for those who aren't one-dimensional cardboard cutouts such as you obviously are.

An oak tree never stops growing. It is a continual and lifelon process.

And the most fortunate of people continue to grow and evolve until death and always recognize that life is a continuous and non-ending growth process with part of that being self-discovery.

Plenty of evidence the brain creates consciousness.
But better still is there is zero evidence it exists without one.
Furthermore, there is a hypothesis as to a quantum mechanism of consciousness and it is VERY detailed. What mechanism do you have for molecular/brain consciousness and how detailed is it? Like I said, effectively all you have is "a bunch of molecules get together". That's not much of a hypothesis.

http://www.quantumconsciousness.org/penrose-h...
You have something like that to support molecular consciousness?

Thank you for your astute elucidation.

Your posts are always so refreshing and enlightening.

In addition, you might also be interested to know that the "con" in "con man" is short for "confidence". It is the process of gaining one's confidence in order to swindle them.

So a con man can well become a con, man.

Please don't hurt me.

If that is true then what you are talking about is pure speculation too. Again, where there are molecules there is quantum reality. Show me something that resembles evidence of consciousness being molecular vs quantum.
