<quoted text>You used one person to exemplify "many" people from a given subset. To be more precise, you used one person from a country of 1.2 billion people, in which 32% fall below the international poverty line of living on US$1.25 a day.
How's that begetting of wealth going for that 828 million (69% of) people in India who live on less than US$2 a day?....
There are numerous success stories out of the slums of India. Banks, telecoms, car companies, recycled plastic. But granted, the majority are still poor. You want to know the difference? Read some news, columns, documentaries, and you'll find that these people don't care to know anything. How many times we hear the story "I work 12 hours a day, I collect plastic garbage for recycling for 8 years, and this is all I know".

"This is all I know"? What nonsense is that? And you are okay with knowing just that for 8 freaking years? Obviously you would remain poor like that. In bangladesh, there are numerous rowing boats to cross their many rivers. One rower to a boat, transporting people. Numerous boat, and the rowers earn $2 a day. But not one of them will think "Let me try to save for a freakin motor for my boat, so I can transport more people and earn more each day".

Let's look at an American success. Warren Buffet was not rich. He went door to door selling sweets. With the profits, he eventually bought a pinball machine and rented it out. With the profits of that he bought another pinball machine and rented it. And another and another. He had one job selling sweets. The pinball machines were doing all his other job. That's the key. Not working two or more jobs. Working one job and then getting your savings to work for you. You don't get rich by working hard and long. You get rich by working smart and investing smart.

I have a crappy job. I hate my career choices. But I just suck it up and plan and look towards a better future. I can pull out a hundred very legitimate excuses of unfairness. But excuses do not help my cause. They are a useless waste. I can't afford excuses. So I plan instead. Success happens when planning meets opportunity. How can anyone plan when they're busy making excuses for themselves? I'm not being harsh on unsympathetic or unempathetic. I pity many. Others can pity you, but you can't afford to pity yourself.

I got nothing against paying tax. I support fair taxation and granted, the current tax laws in the U.S. are unfair. But who is standing and fighting that? People are dancing on wall street instead of in the constitutional court.

<quoted text>There are no "designs built" into anything, Dave.
You are experiencing apophenia.
The first offspring of anything that seeks food to survive has design built into it.

That's not apophenia.

Your belief in the magical assembly of our beings by randomness of pre-existing material is mental laziness feeding ego. It leads to topical thinking.

You spend too much time poopoohing and not feeding your brain. This has allowed your ego to get overinflated with hot air, resulting in your brain relesing smelly farts into the environment. Not a design defect in your case necessarily.

Subjects of Double Fine.

Yes, indeed. Prove there is a god.

Look at the beautiful world aroind you. How perfect everything is. Look at a bee. So delicate, yet so perfect. Engineering on a level mankind does not even begin to comprehend.

Or a flower! The beauty, splendour and magnificence of the Wild Iris or the Mountain Orchid.

Surely, this beauty and integration cannot happen by random chance alone. Something must have created it.

That something is Double Fine. Double Fine has died for each of *your* sins, so that *you* can roam into the everlasting afterlife, and stay there for eternity, where you shall sing praises to His Holiness, Double Fine.

Thank you for reading. May the peace, love and blessings of Double Fine be upon ye.

<quoted text>
A true nothing can not exist in your physical environment. You can't measure it. You could not transverse it, that means you couldn't even see past it or through it. If one portal existed of it the universe would be sucked into it. All energy would have a path of no resistance or limits to fill. This universe is a bubble or a bottle formed around it by a something else.
As I have said before, modern physics made a wrong turn when they turned particles into the gods of creation. All of our physics is derived from the processes of energy moving in a bottle. The working from the inside out of those particles gives the illusion of another dimension we popped out of magically. The BBT may be very accurate overall, but something was ignored in the pursuit of those mathematicl gods of particles.
Energy follows the paths of least resistance. If there was nothing or a true void beyond the boundaries of this universe it would have already escaped into it.
You have seen and misunderstood too many analogies using balloons

Nope particles are particles, gods are in your mind.

What magically? Juts becise it is not understood does not mean goddidt by magic

Something like what?

No. You said top and bottom borders , not north and south borders. If the Bible said top and bottom borders like you did, you'd use that against the Bible to show how wrong it is.
THAT'S the reference here, Christine. I understood what you meant by "top and bottom borders", you pretend like you don't understand "moving a mountain with faith".
It's a sick game you play.
Just because you are does not mean that I am holding the map upside-down

There is a considerable difference between holding a map upside-down and the delusion of moving several trillion tons just by thing of a god

A game, yes but not sick, never sick.

You have circuits in your brain that were subjected to abnormally high voltages caused by the LSD which caught spurious signal generation created by that LSD, and locked it into place.
Your brain got fried into a set pattern instead of the more fluid natural way that makes adjustments and for nuances regarding whatever was transpiring at the time.
You interrupted your natural mental development. Retarded is a better description. Took a trip and never returned.
I would suggest spending long periods staring at the sun to reset that.
I only took Sandoz LSD. Pharmaceutical pure. Your ignorance on this subject is astounding. You should stick with giving out computer advise as you are really good at it.

I think it said there was no form, not a nothing. A void like a vacuum being devoid of any "matter". But the inside of that vacuum vessel is a something.

There is mention of "waters" and darkness. "Waters" is symbolic. JC mentioned something about living waters.

Like I said before. Look into a stagnant bowl of pure water. Transparent. You see nothing. Stir it with your finger. Things will start to take shape. You are creating differences in density by motion.

Thoughts can be likened to "waters" and motion.

Girl, you need some imagination. You need a fire lit up in you that shines light and doesn't just consume you. You are a smouldering ember that needs the breath of life.

"However, those who identified as part of the tea party movement were actually better versed in science than those who didn’t, Kahan found. The findings met the conventional threshold of statistical significance, the professor said."

This comment got over 1,200 thumbs up: "Let's get this straight - this elite professor doesn't know a single tea partier, but he admits to holding a negative view of them. Not very interested in intellectual honesty, I'd say."
