Atheism vs. Scientific Method
Moravian comments on Mar 21, 2019:
Interesting question. Using the scientific method 1.Q. is there a god ? 2.Collect data, there is none to prove the existence of a god. 3.Test the hypothesis, How ?
What do you think? Will you join? [facebook.com]
Moravian comments on Mar 21, 2019:
Very interesting. One thing I find totally bizarre about US politics is why do you have to register as a member of a political party when at elections votes are cast in a secret ballot
Can you be atheist and agnostic?
Moravian comments on Mar 21, 2019:
I base my atheism purely on the non existence of the Judeo/christian/muslim god .Having read the first few books of the old testament in some detail it is obvious (to me) that Jewish monotheism was adopted ,possibly taken from Zoroastrianism, as a control measure and justification for their warlike aquisitive behaviour. Some other gods which are little more than belief in some sort of life force may have more validity but since we in the west are normally referring to "yaweh" when we say "god" I think those who call ourselves atheists are quite entitled to do so.

An interesting question..

151 - Will We Destroy the Future?
Moravian comments on Mar 20, 2019:

Jesus take the wheel...
Moravian comments on Mar 20, 2019:
Happened to me once. After working on my car I took it for a test run but forgot to tighten the wheel nuts. The front nearside wheel came of and rolled down the road in front of the car. A woman sitting in her car in a layby got quite a surprise as the wheel rolled past her. Jesus had no input.

Is the world getting better or worse? A look at the numbers | Steven Pinker - YouTube
Moravian comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I have been a fan of Steven Pinker since I read his book "How the mind works" years ago. I think he is right to be optimistic rather then pessimistic and I wholeheartedly agree that the The European enlightenment was the greatest intellectual achievement ever. Overall the population is better off than they were but there have been some losers eg the Aboriginals in Australia and the San people in the Kalahari who have seen their way of life totally destroyed. As for the future ?, Well that is entirely up to us isn't it.
My mom is threatening not to come to my wedding because it's not a religious ceremony. sigh

That's very sad, but not uncommon. I attended my partner's nephew's wedding in Connecticut last year and the brides parents didn't attend the wedding because it was a humanist wedding.
The 12 Signs That Show We're in The Middle of a 6th Mass Extinction
Moravian comments on Mar 18, 2019:
Probably true but it is a pity he started with inaccurate information on the last great extinction when the dinosaurs went extinct. It is now widely accepted that the asteroid strike was only a contributory factor and the main cause was massive volcanic activity in India which pumped massive amounts of CO2 in to the atmosphere resulting in a rise in temperature

Moravian comments on Mar 18, 2019:
Good luck with the petition.There have been talks about reintroducing some species such as the Iberian Lynx to the UK but I doubt if the wolf will ever be reintroduced.. The last one was killed in Scotland in the late 17th century. There has been at least two reintroductions of the European beaver both official and unofficial with mixed success.

Moravian comments on Mar 17, 2019:
One question, where do ghosts get their energy from ?. Animals, including humans get their energy from the food they eat and the air they breathe, so do ghosts eat and drink or do they just plug themselves into an electric socket for a recharge.

Moravian comments on Mar 12, 2019:
The early Christians were persecuted not for worshiping their god but for refusing to worship the official Roman gods. When Christianity became the official religion they returned the favour, tenfold. For a brilliant summary of those times read "The darkening age (the christian destruction of the classical world)" by Catherine Nixey. Shows "the religion of love and tolerance" in a new light.

Moravian comments on Mar 11, 2019:
This is a guy who married a six year old girl but to give him credit he did not have sex with her until she was nine. In this day and age he would be serving a long stretch at HMP. I have a habit of watching the BBC's "Big Question" on sunday mornings although it does nothing for my elevated blood pressure. Yesterday the question was "Is islam united or divided". All the usual (Muslim) suspects were hauled out including that obnoxious English convert Yvonne Riddley. They genuinely scared me apart from the English Sufi who was pacifist and seems to spend most of his life meditating. A Welsh scholar of Islam proclaimed that every word of the Koran is open to multiple interpretation and another stated that it was the pure and perfect word of god. Now they can't both be right or was god just playing tricks ?

There is an amusing piece in The Times today about autosexuality. or the love of ones self. An obvious candidate for this affliction is Donald Trump.

Cohen paid two people to bid on the painting and it sold for $60000. This sum was paid anonymously by Trump and he then gloated about how much his painting was worth.

If the dividing up of the continent by European colonists had not happened and countries had evolved on tribal boundaries it may be a more peaceful place.
