Again you are comparing existent creatures to undiscovered alien
abilities, and there is no reason to assume any limitations to anything. There is no reason to think a collective couldn't exist in a advanced intelligent species. In a way the internet allows humans to form a collective. There is the possibility that if telepathic abilities could exist, then so could the collective mind. The fact we don't see it here is not a reason it can't exist.
I think it's certainly possible that a wide array of body plans are possible, but I also think it's reasonable to put some very general limitations on the most likely ones. For instance, any sufficiently intelligent creature would most likely have evolved to be a meat eater/omnivore, as large amounts of energy are necessary for a high functioning brain. Manipulating appendages are also probably a necessary requirement.

I can't, really. I didn't read any nasty comments to you from Skeptic. I only read yours to him. I guess, from your point of view, they were in return.
I have read some nasty comments to you - that's true. But they weren't from Skeptic.
Keep lying. None of my comments were nasty. I posted the thread so everybody can see what a fkg loony ass liar you are.

As far as I see, you give what you get. I've tried to be nice to you, you're just nasty back. So why bother. And I don't know your history with Kaitlin, so definitely not going to comment on it. Clearly asking someone to suicide isn't moral - again, I didn't observe this (and it's worth noting that lots of 'Christians' on here asked me the same, Bongo included - quite vehemently and repetitively there for while). But I do like the continued use of Junior High School girl logic in your above post with the whole us/them approach. I truly believe you're fixated on that age's level of maturity.
Anyways, I don't know who Lilith is. Never read a single post by that person - you used to claim I was her. And if she threatened to kill you, I'd report it. That's totally unacceptable and repulsive all in one go. In fact, given your descriptions of Lilith, she seemed pretty repugnant to me, despite that I don't completely trust your word.

Well that is what is taught in the Bible!
Matt. 4:8, "Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor."
What with the earth being globe shaped no, matter how tall this mountain was you can not see the kingdoms on the other side of the earth. Even if the earth was flat, from the tallest mountain one can not see "all" the kingdoms of the world.
The Bible is just a collection of silly ancient Jewish Puppet plays. How much more evidence do the pew warmers need?
You must understand, whenever the bible makes a demonstrably wrong statement, it's not meant to be taken literally.

The Universe is nothing but energy.
So if you want to call energy "God" than so be it.

Now if the Universe gives us energy than that energy can be used to help others.

So really the Universal energy "God" is helping us, we just need to direct that energy to a good cause.

It's a pity that we don't.

Thanks for posting it :)
It's great how you think I'm evil when you created an entire thread to attack one person, invited others who didn't like him to it, so you could engage in cyber bullying all because you couldn't deal with his comments in the original thread you two were posting in.
That's right, I'm the bad person for daring to mention how immature it is to engage in group cyberbullying. Silly me. Why, I should have sided with you, Nano! After all, you're the one who arranged the thread - I'm such an evil, low person for not seeing this earlier.
I didn't invite anybody to that thread you delusional freak. If I had it would have been flooded with posters. Most people don't even know that forum exists.
You've got a lot of nerve mentioning bullying considering how many of your crew have stalked me, online AND off.

I have and had nothing to do with anyone stalking you, you paranoid, crazed thing.

And you invited one of the topix stalkers into your house so you could sleep with him - is this my fault, too?

Oh, how cute....you're taking after IANS and reposting your old posts. It looks as if you've caught his admiration of seeing his own words, over and over again. Who knew narcissism could be spread with brainwashing.

I never claimed you were lilith, loon that you are. And you're still lying about being oblivious to Kaitlyn's bullshyt.

Here you go thinking in the same terms as life on Earth in our biosphere, the same as DF. If life is strictly dependent on the set criteria as we are and if "life as we know it" exists.
I would say life anywhere in the universe will be very similar,
but we simply cannot make that decision with only a single example in the known universe.

My contention is that alien chemistry could be so radically different that extraterrestrial life may hold nothing in common with life on Earth. It could turn out that life simply works with the material at hand, and need not evolve strictly in a liquid water environment. There has been much speculation investing into "life as we do not know it" and it maybe possible other mediums exist that could have spawned life in different organic chemistry's in ways we do not know .

Notice I didn't say that "strange" body forms are impossible, I said that I think it's safe to say that, given what we know, there may be some very general guidelines that apply to most life. This isn't to say that exotic lifeforms are impossible, just that it's reasonable to say that most life, in general, will follow a very general set of rules.

So in truth - you only parrot what others have stated to you and you really don't know if there will be any judgment at all.
This is why Christianity is losing its followers, it can't keep the lies straight, and the heirarchy likes to dangle the "hope" and "faith" carrots in fornt of you, so you focuss on those instead of the real truth.
Why don't you believe Jesus?
Christianity isn't losing its followers, we're gaining 25 million new members every year.

I do believe Jesus.
