There's another book of Bryson's I'm looking forward to...
'A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail'
Hiked some of the AT. I'd like to tackle its whole length one of these days.

Looks good.

RR's been known for citing particular definitions for words, after using them inappropriately, then "correcting" others when they don't use the words inappropriately.

Indeed.

Hey, if you have a direct line to god, how about you get on that little child hunger problem?
I find it interesting that people that see so much wrong with the world ,(as in man made problems) expect a "God" to come and fix their problems.
We made this bed, so we shall sleep in this bed.
Child hunger is man's problem.
We are guilty of turning a blind eye to it , we are aware of the problem yet what do we do ?
We pray to a "God" to fix what he supposedly made, now that is nothing but buck passing.
If we are man enough than we will realize that all of our problems are actually all of our problems.
Deal with them and eventually things will get better.
Tell "God" to deal with them and eventually things will get worse.

Back then it was called "magic". Today, we won't define anything as "magic". We would define it, most likely, as a "break of a physical law".
Now, if some guy was able to conjure up fire sent down from the heavens, and rain it down on a target of his choosing, that would be a big and spectacular way to demonstrate that he has such abilities. If that guy then tells us that he glorifes your deity with it, and that he only did it because the deity allowed him to, then we would all have to take his word - You, me, True Truth, Mythbuster, HFY. Because this man can demonstrate supernatural phenomena.
Now, currently, your god is too weak to kill something as weak as a virus.
Either he is nonexistent, or he is a wimp.
Not worth praying to
Prepare yourself!



Some people never get tired of finding new ways to maim and kill their fellow man. Soon, getting hit by lightning will no longer be a chance occurrence.

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 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.

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

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.
