Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Yes, if you can. Also, water before bed. You'll likely be up peeing at night, but that is more due to the diuretic effect of the beer than the water. Remember, the water is there to prevent relative dehydration facilitated by the diuretic effect of the alcohol.
I took your advice yesterday. Not exactly, but pretty close. I'd have a few beers then a glass of water. Did that several times. And I did have a full glass of water before bed. And sure as shit, I got up twice last night to pee. But I feel good this morning, bright & peppy.

Thanks.

Salivary stones are made up of calcuim, phosphate, and carbonate ions among other substances. When their concentration rises above a critical threshold, they precipitate out. Water is intended to dilute them. Water with calcium, phosphate or carbonate will not do this as well. By analogy, if you were trying to dilute saltwater, you would use freshwater, not more saltwater.
Oh. That makes perfect sense.

No juice, just water.

Thanks again.

And FYI - sometimes with me, the best way to get something locked in my brain is with analogy...

Thank you for sharing yet another faith based, unsupported opinion. Most theists share it.
<quoted text>
You're offering your faith based preferences as proven facts. Notice the difference in our demeanors:
You: "Earth is not and was not hospitable to life forming spontaneously"
Me: "It's very possible that life formed on earth repeatedly"
As for the ideal conditions for abiogenesis, these appear to include both the absence of competing life, and the addition of deep time. We do not expect abiogenesis to occur in the presence of other life, which is presumably why all life appears to have derived from a single primordial unicellular species with no extant competing lines, nor in the laboratory over a few years.
The physical environment of earth does not include time. Conditions are not and have never been hospitable to life forming spontaneously.

This is not faith-based; it is a known fact.

All life "derived from a single primordial unicellular species", on the other hand, IS faith-based.

I have no objection to diversity of faiths.

It's when claims of exclusivity of a particular faith rises up that it get off-putting.

Like you and the Christian fundamentalists.

Pretty good little introduction to how magnetic fields interact.

You just have to remember this works down to the atomic level. There is not a monolithic field, it is a combo of the individual atoms working on each other. Those individual atoms get worked on by the cumulative field of others.

Note the chain of paperclips caught in a field and their relative values. This is the stuff you use to make things work. This bipolarity and relative values of it.

There is an interesting phenomenon though in all "magnetized", note that word, objects. That magnetically neutral portion between the poles. If you have two charged poles and a "neutral" in between, then you are tapping into another force to fill the disturbance of its equilibrium. Has to do with conservation of energy, etc.

Really? Can you tell us what excludes Earth from a one of the physical dimensions of the 4-D universe? Space/time is inseparable.

"Conditions are not and have never been hospitable to life forming spontaneously."

The modern abiogenesis hypothesis does not surmise life arose spontaneously.

"All life "derived from a single primordial unicellular species"

Is what the evidence points too.

<quoted text>His cosmological argument is flawed, as are all arguments dealing with this premise. Thats something CAN'T come from nothing is an argument from ignorance. There is NO way to prove that something CANNOT come from nothing. In order to make the claim that something CAN"T come from nothing, you are required to have an example of nothing. We have examples of *something* but NO examples of nothing. Therefore to claim with certainty that SOMETHING CANNOT COME FOR NOTHING, is an unsupported claim, exactly the same as the claim that God exists. So until you can product and example of NOTHING, you have no leg to stand on claiming something cannot come from nothing.
B coming from A requires the existence of A.

A cannot both exist and not exist.

Therefore, something (B) cannot come from nothing (A).

The evidence for abiogenesis is the same as there is for creation.
"Living things", so you defeated your argument from the start.
Evidence for god is zero... Despite centuries of searching for one, and trying to find it, has been 100% unsuccessful.
No provable instance of it has been observed in all of history, not one god, not even once.
But you are free to take it on faith.
God was made possible by shitting a book.
With Greco-Roman text.
I won't argue with your equating belief in abiogenesis with belief in god.

Have you told IAnus, because he believes it.

Sometimes you can remove them by palpation through the sublingual or parotid duct.

They often go unnoticed until engorgement or xerostomia sets in.

Time does not exist until you try to transverse space.

"Space" can exist without time.

Space/time was created as a math means of measuring the energy that was released to set things into motion. Our little bubble of existence.

Motion makes time.

Put little Aura out all by himself in the vastness of "space", outside this bubble we exist in. There is no time but the motion within little Aura. He has nothing else to measure against.

That is what I have referred to in that yearning for manifestation. The real Hell.

You have to be polarized in some fashion to mingle with others. We do that now with gravity as the base and EM as the actuator.
