When I am on my death bed, I still won't seriously consider that "God" assumes a name (like "Jehovah" or "Allah"), but I bet most atheists will break down and consider that there might be some sort of higher power/consciousness, and will quickly humble themselves. But maybe too late to make a difference.....in the "direction" their conscious energy is allowed to take, after the transition of "death".
So, now your "eternal consciousness" nonsense shows it's true colors. It is ego worship and the desire to see others "judged" for their arrogance hidden behind pseudo science. "Direction their consciousness will take..." I wonder what that could be a euphemism for.

Einstein explained gravity with GR , which does explain the cause and mechanism of gravity.
Well, it models the effects of gravity/distortions in spacetime very well, but we still don't know exactly how gravity is "communicated."

So you have a 6 month old baby that's decided to throw a meaningless temper tantrum because you're trying to have dinner with your man and the baby's not getting enough attention...
What do you do?
Woah. RR, do you think that babies like, think in the same way that adults do?

You ever watch Star Wars? Here's a tongue in cheek example of something that is "logically impossible" consider the dramatic revelation in Star Wars: Episode V (The Empire Strikes Back). Luke's reaction to the revelation that Darth Vader is his father is disbelief: that it is impossible. Whatever emotions drove this reaction, it is likely that this was his reaction to the fact that the assertion contradicted his mental model of Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker being seperate individuals, one of whom literally killed the other, as Ben Kenobi described in Episode IV. Relative to this model of reality, it was logically impossible for Darth Vader to be Anakin Skywalker, because it violated an assumption used in constructing the model. But if we accept what is asserted or demonstrated by the later Star Wars films, it was in fact actually possible, and indeed true.
Yes I know that it's just a movie, but it does show that something can be logical and yet impossible.
No. It was not "logically impossible" for darth vader to be lukes father. That is not what is meant by "logically impossible."

Spanking a child as discipline is not violence, IMO.
Striking a child, or anyone, out of anger is akin to raid rage.
I have never and will never spank my kids out of anger.
For a lawyer, you have a skewed vision of domestic violence. You sound like the typical Californian liberal.
A 6 month old does not understand the concept of "discipline." If you hit a 6 month old baby, all you are teaching them is that if they do what they were doing immediately preceding the beating, they will get hit. In this way, you will condition your child to fear crying. It will not understand "oh, I shouldn't cry unless something is *really* wrong," it will just connect the crying with the hitting.

<quoted text>That's the dipsh*t quote of the day. You don't even realize how stupid that makes you look. You obviously don't understand the material that you google. The quantum world is eternally active. So much so that 'absolute zero' may not be attainable, that is if it is defined as a total absence of any motion. And it's not even possible to determine a total lack of motion because detection has limits; we have no idea what the limits of reality are.
I think he meant that the macro world does not follow the same rules as the quantum world. As in, things do not pop in and out of existence and my couch is not a wavefunction, as far as I can tell.

I'm not sure what in your past has happened to piss you off, hurt you or turn you away from God and to harden that "pump" of yours but that's for a later time.
Ughhh. Goodness I hate that. "People who don't believe the same thing I do must be that way because they were 'hurt,' and therefore their objections can be written off as if they are over emotional children." No.

Yes, that is apparently what RR thinks.

He thinks that 6 month old babies reason like adults, he thinks that 6 month old babies are capable of plotting and planning, he thinks that 6 month old babies will know why they are being spanked, he thinks that 6 month old babies have any concept of right and wrong, he thinks that 6 month old babies know what discipline is, he thinks that 6 month old babies know they are being punished....

Um....I think RR likes to bully anyone and everyone- including 6 month old babies.

Oh yes- I forgot- RR also thinks that 6 month old babies are capable of understanding that Mommy and Daddy want to have a nice quiet dinner together.

Then again, RR thinks that keeping a loaded gun in his teenage son's bedroom is also a very good thing to do and RR thinks that makes him a good parent.

Also, RR thinks that if a person doesn't have children, they have no right to an opinion about child-rearing.

And because RR is a parent, he thinks that means he knows everything about how children should be disciplined, taught and raised.

What RR doesn't understand is that one need not be a parent to recognize what is child abuse and striking a 6 month old baby is child abuse and keeping a loaded gun in the bedroom of minors is also child abuse.

And given the inordinate amount of time RR spends here- and that does include the weekends- RR is also guilty of child neglect in that he neglects his teenage sons to spend as much time as he possibly can here on Topix.

Gym a little later. I've had to lay off the legs for a while as I've been struggling to heal a strained MCL. Still go 5 to 7 days a week.

Unfortunately, I started smoking again after I lost my job. Got to quit again. Too much time on my hands.

They made an offer to bring me back to work, but it was totally unacceptable to me, so I am appealing to the MSPB.

<quoted text>Well, first of all, it's not banned, and second of all, charging people a little extra fee to make sure they *really* want those bags is not "ultra leftist," it is simply an easy way to cut down on waste and pollution. Plastic is not good for the environment, period. But I know the far right wackos think it's their god given right to punish the environment based on that silly ass "dominion" tradition.
Seriously, explain the logic that makes something as simple and self evident as the need to take care of earth "far leftist."
ROFLMAO!!! This is a GREAT post, but seriously- you're asking RR to explain LOGIC when he is totally ILLOGICAL due to having absolutely no concept as to what logic is??

Nah- in RR's mind, it is "logical" to think that actually caring about the planet, the environment, the planet being habitable for future generations to come- which includes not only HIS kids, but any kids they might have and any kids his grandkids might have, and so on....is a "leftist plot" of some sort.

And here's more of RR's "logic"- he has posted that left wingers are more wasteful than right wingers.

Of course, he had no stats or documentation to back that up, but hey- all we need to know is that RR is right because RR is just SOOOO logical....

HA!

Yeah, that was pretty out there, even for RR. He could use a child psych class at the local community college. Or as he would call it, the libetard indoctrination center.

What, does the author think that everybody lives in a house?
What about all the city folks?
You really are an illiterate moron. You're not even familiar with the story "The Night Before Christmas".

The story is about ONE house and ONE family who lived in that ONE house.

The POINT is that if people are going to use a book of FAITH about god to try and prove that the existence of a god is a FACT, then a book about Santa Claus could also stand as proof that the existence of Santa Claus is a fact.

That you don't GET that is simply another sign of just how lacking in LOGIC and critical thinking skills you are.

But that's not news.
