Comes from a family with a history of working in horticulture, grew up running wild in the country and hated school. I have a life interest in the natural world a passion for gardening and also enjoy walking, travel, music, natural history and helping with the running of several gardening and natural history groups. I have been lucky enough to be asked to write a number of articles for books and magazines and also find employment as a public speaker. I continue to run the family business, though due to bereavements I am now left running it alone.

'Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." Perhaps George Santayana, though also attributed to many others. And sadly the number one thing that history does teach, is the truth of that. Yet we live in a world which claims to be highly advanced, but scorns history as never before.
Actually, natural is neutral | Nature Human Behaviour
Fernapple comments on Jun 1, 2020:
Yes in whole agreement with that. And don't even get me started on the meaningless organic movement. But in one other sense, not really the one the article is about, nature is not neutral, and that is, in the sense that the study of it, as a learning experience, leads to greater understanding and less misunderstanding than does the study of gods.

Does anyone else wonder how much the Covid-19 situation is factoring into all this rioting?
Fernapple comments on May 31, 2020:
Yes of course you have to wonder about that. Certainly when people are afraid they often turn to violence, even against things and people which have no connection with the source of the fear. Things like racism , nationalism and all the movements of hate, rise and rise when people are fearful and stressed. But even more you may well find that you are up against the greatest factor in human life, which is even more powerful than fear, or hate, which is simply boredom. The speed drunk monkey, creates religions, nations, empires, art and architecture, drains the earth of its resources, poisons land and sea, and then destroys all that it has made equally swiftly, mainly just to feed its need for novelty. And to fulfill its need never to sit still. After weeks of lock down ?

I remember seeing a documentary about a group of Langur Monkeys, whose culture changed almost overnight, when a single bullying leader was overthrown in a coup, and a similar one about chimps. Which makes me wonder if he is not perhaps overstating the case and the uniqueness of his own, special troop, of which no doubt he is very fond.

Murder is meat. If you don't shut up, you could end up as meat, sooner. Marriage is a subjective state, and therefore like anything subjective, exploitable by churches for profit. If you are only a kid, everyone is free to use you. Money is the measure of life. Length = inches, weight = pounds, capacity = pints, the hours I work = dollars. Therefore why are some able to use my life, because they got money for doing nothing. God does not exist, so it can be anything you want to claim it is. Good, evil and happiness are absolutes, and like all absolutes they belong in the same box with things that don't exist. There you are, do you feel better now.

Fernapple comments on May 22, 2020:
I posted this bit about muffins before, but this seems like a good time to bring it out again. And muffins are fun. Suppose for a minute, and for the sake of argument only, that there is a god, and an afterlife, including heaven and a hell; and that the god chooses whether people go to heaven, or if some go to hell, in fact the whole theist deal. Not only that, but the criterion on which the god makes the choice is based on the type of muffins they eat. ( Note: “eat” not prefer, this is not about free will or anything like that.) People who eat lemon muffins go to heaven and people who eat chocolate muffins go to hell, with limbo for those who don't eat muffins at all, naturally. Would that make a difference to your life ? Would you give up your chocolate muffins for an eternity of joy, and all the lemon buns after death you could ever eat ? Perhaps you would. But there is one vital thing that I forgot to mention about this god, which is that; this particular god, does not tell you about the muffins, or how they affect your afterlife, in fact it keeps the whole thing a big secret just to itself, so that you have no way of knowing which muffins you have to eat. Then in that case, of course, you could not make the appropriate changes to your life, or save your soul anyway. In fact muffins, the gods preferences and even that god, would not impact on your life at all. The point is this. That a gods, souls, the afterlife etc. have no effect on anything, unless that god, or someone who knows, tells you about it, and you therefore have some knowledge of god's cake prejudices. Making this the big difference between religion, which pretends to offer knowledge of god the afterlife etc., and none belief which does not. Which is why the difference between atheists, humanists, agnostics and even deists, is so small and unimportant by comparison, because none claim any knowledge of gods preferences, and it is the pretense of fake knowledge, and of god given authority, which makes the big difference. Compared with that the differences between atheist and agnostic, even deist, are trivial to the point of vanishing.

Is there evidence for God?
Fernapple comments on May 19, 2020:
Depends what you mean by 'god', for some gods none. But I would say that there is a lot of evidence for others, such as the biblical god, for example. It is just that in real objective terms, it is entirely really very bad crap evidence. There is for example a large volume called the Bible, which could be called evidence. But it is a book which was assembled by many people over centuries, without a common plan, whose authors are unknown, as are the dates of writing, which often contradicts itself, whose editors are unknown, ditto the dates of editing, we do not have any original copies, or even know how many lost copies there were, how often it was reedited, the true date of first assembly, or even the original language of all of it, etc. etc. In short it is about the worst possible evidence you can have for anything. But if you are to debate with theists, it is much better to concede that there is evidence, and then question what it is worth, than to flatly say that, there is no evidence. Because that is what they expect you to say, and that concession throws them, because they know that if you do say, there is no evidence, then that throws you into the position of trying to prove there is none, which they know is hard, and puts you at a disadvantage, because of course there is, especially in their minds, so it is impossible to prove. It is much easier to prove that the evidence is not, **good** evidence.

Fernapple comments on May 19, 2020:
Hello and welcome. Boy you are big on Noah. Nearly every culture has a flood myth, floods when they occur are big events in peoples lives, and overstatement is an inevitable result. The thing that interests me however is speculating, ( It is only for fun speculation, not evidence based. ) how the overstatement first occurred. What story teller sat by the fire, and first answered the question. "How big was it?" With raised arms, and. "It was the whole world OK !" And when perhaps did. 'He put on board two of all his domestic animals.' First become. 'He put on board two of all the animals.' It is fun to think about how, so easily, the omission of just a tiny and easy to forget small qualification, 'all his domestic', could instantly create a whole new story, quite different from what may have been originally every day sensible tale. Worth thinking about other things too. Like how easily a sentence such as. "He was not frightened, (Being the hero of the story . ) but stood up and walked about while they were still in the boat on the water." Could so easily become something like. " Stood up and walked about on the water, while they were in the boat."

It is often just an admission that they know they can not win the argument. In which case you can ask yourself if you are wrong, or admit that you lack the skills needed to argue at that level even if not wrong, but some people find those things hard to do, perhaps because they were taught that there is no forgiveness for falling short. At which point they can either run or resort to weapons, insults included.
Recognition merited.
