Triphid comments on Oct 30, 2019:
It is only logical that modern humans, i.e. Homo Sapiens, would have evolved and remained where the sources of nutrients were easily available and plentiful just as any animals tend to do. And then, as the pressures of population growth and climatic changes occurred then groups would have spread out to find and follow these greener corridors, slowly but surely colonizing and populating newer regions as they went.
Winter hiking survival. Your ideas?
Triphid comments on Oct 29, 2019:
Mine for hiking = a Swag, a cup, a billy for boiling water or making a meal in, a good sharp knife and a spoon, a decent hat that offers plenty of shade to the head and neck, 2 boxes of matches and a pair of decent solid soled boots and some strong but light string to make snares to catch a meal.
Is hope realistic?
Triphid comments on Oct 29, 2019:
When it comes to the " In the sure and certain Hope of Resurrection, etc, etc," as spouted by Priests etc, at a graveside of a person being buried, I would say that it IS 100% UNREALISTIC in that NO hope can EVER be Sure and Certain. But, when something goes wrong around the house, i.e. there is an unexpected power failure, and we often hope to ourselves that it IS not something like a massive problem like the electrical wiring circuits of the whole house have suddenly failed, then, Yes, hoping that it IS not just your problem can be realistic, or, even buying a Used car and hoping that the mechanic inspecting it on your behalf finds not faults, major or minor, for example, can also be realistic. But Hey, that's my thoughts and opinions on Hope.

Triphid comments on Oct 29, 2019:
Though some may stayed adherent to their "adopted" ( forced even) Roman like ways, others, less romanized would have merely continued on as usual. As for the so-called Anglo-Saxon Invasion, well there's been quite a few well known and well respected Historians and Archaeologists who have both found evidence and shown fairly clearly that the Invasion was more like an intermingling of migrants rather than an all out invasion/Conquest scenario.
The agnostic crowd is much more intelligent than the rest!! Sorry, but it is the truth.
Triphid comments on Oct 29, 2019:
I'd suppose that in some ways we are since we are NOT governed by religious edicts and Church Canons, etc, instead we think for ourselves, decide what IS right and what IS wrong WITHOUT having to be told by some self-appointed, self-proclaimed representative of an Imaginary, Invisible and Totally Non-existent Entity supposedly living above the clouds somewhere.

What is agnosticism?
Triphid comments on Oct 28, 2019:
There is an absolute certainty that Human Intelligence WILL expand exponentially as our understanding of the things around us continues to grow. as to religion and belief that there is a God/Sky Daddy Being,then I, for one, AM absolutely 100% certain that none has ever existed NOR ever will truly exist since ALL religions, in my opinion, are MERELY the INVENTIONS created in the minds of Humans and EXPLOITED by those who see those INVENTIONS as a means to enhance their lives and living standards. I have had almost 60 years of life to ponder and consider the 'Is there a God question,' I have done it by using logic, reasoning and often intensive studying and the result has ALWAYS been exactly the same, i.e. THERE IS no God/Sky Daddy.
No gods/no kings?
Triphid comments on Oct 28, 2019:
Since it is said that Kings (and Queens) are anointed by God thus came into being the ideology of "Ruling over the People of a Land/Country is the Divine Right of Kings," then, logically, since NO Divinity/God or Supremely Omnipotent Entity, etc, has ever been proven 100% to have existed that ideology MUST be as much a FALLACY as is the Ideology that the self-same Divinity/God/Supremely Omnipotent Entity is. Ergo, I bow to no Man nor Woman since NONE should be expected to bow to me either nor shall I ever genuflect before any person claiming to be a Representative of this totally Unproven Supremely Omnipotent Entity either.
There is no good thing that a church/religion does that cannot be achieved through secular ways.

Is anyone else a reptile lover?
Triphid comments on Oct 27, 2019:
I think you'd like my house then, well my yard and gardens at least. It's a kind of unofficial refuge for native reptiles and birds, I have 1 Sand Goanna who wanders the yard ( and those of a few neighbors from time to time as well) in search of meals usually consisting of garden snail, mice, etc, and during mating season, she climbs the trees and raids the sparrow nests as well, about a 20 Bearded Dragons at last count, somewhere around 100+ Geckos that roam free, often inside the house and outside as well, they do a wonderful job of keeping flies and other insect pests under control, plus a garden pond that frogs visit regularly as well. When Anna the goanna first arrived, she was very thin, about 14 inches long and had a badly crippled right side paw/foot, she was visibly starving and so I fed her with some beef mince, the next morning she was laying at my front door as if expecting to be fed again ( which she got btw), ever since then she seems to have adopted my house and yard as her own private territory and refuge.

What was your worst Halloween costume fail?
Triphid comments on Oct 26, 2019:
I still remember when we had what was called our "End of High School Break up Day" and everyone from our grade went to school in fancy dress. One boy managed to get hold of gigantic, full length, advertising condom, wore it and a sign that said, " Prime Minister of Australia," while one of the girls covered herself from head to toes with cotton wool dyed black, painted ( rather explicitly I might add) from top to bottom as set of pink labia and went around telling everyone, " I have one and the Prime Minister IS one." In Australia we don't celebrate Halloween as much as you do in America BUT until the Education Department put a TOTAL Ban on " End of High School Break up Days" there WERE so pretty awesome costumes that were made and worn. P.S. A big part of " Break Up Day" was also to raise money for a charity upon which ALL students agreed, so our Money Raising idea was to "borrow' the statue of Colonel Sanders from the top of the local KFC outlet and hold it for ransom. We managed to raise about 1,000 dollars for that effort BUT our costumes were somewhat NOT appreciated by the very conservative School Principal, maybe it was because our costumes made a political statement or perhaps he was upset that I went as the Grim Reaper with a badge that proclaimed me as the School Principal, guess I'll never know which...LOL.

To the attached article, etc, I'd say " Wake up Amerikka, at least 80% of your troubles are deeply rooted in the mires of intolerances, bigotry, divisivenesses, etc, born and bred by Religions/religious ideologies and the sooner your nation comes to realize this the better it will be." In my opinion, just like religions, wherever Amerikkka goes it creates a conflict, makes a desert and calls it Progress. The time is nigh to stop Amerikkkan Democratic Imperialism, re-think, re-shape and become a Nation that this world WILL accept rather than shun.

North Carolina, the State where one can find Patrol Cars with legalized Peeping Toms driving them. Scenario in Nth. Carolina: Sheriff answers phone in office, woman screams into phone, " Help, someone is trying to murder me and my family, we're locked in the bathroom, send a Deputy please." Sheriff answers, " Sorry Ma'am but all my Deputies are out on patrol checking that no-one is Cohabiting before Marriage, they be be a few hours before anyone can respond to your call." And here was me thinking that President Humpty tRumpty was a huge joke, Nth. Carolina has just taken the cake.

Sadly, we Atheists, etc, have ALWAYS copped the brunt of the Faithfools ridicule, discrimination and persecution because, in my opinion, we DO NOT fit neatly into their Sheeple flock. We DO differ from time to time, We do bicker amongst ourselves from time to time, We are 100% Human AND We are Individuals and, to borrow a line from the movie ' Independence Day,' "We will not vanish quietly into the night, We will not disappear without a fight, " WE ARE Independent.

WTF, BLEACH IS TOXIC and can be poisonous even in small doses, that MUST be tantamount to Attempted Murder at least. There IS NO cure for Autism, there ARE treatments for it that MAY alleviate it but they MAY not always work. Technically speaking, everyone of us has some small degree of Autistic behaviour in us somewhere and often it is merely put down as something like O.C.D.,etc. People with Autism are People none-the -less, it is just that, perhaps, their brains are wired slightly different to how ours are wired AND drinking frigging BLEACH will NOT fix that.

And, as hard as life has tried to 'break' me, I've always managed to bounce back and face it again somehow.

Love that song, even though my Dad was born in 1905, he used to like it as well and would often sing it, using his own words substituted for girl, etc, to instill into ME to stay away from working in the local mines as he had done for ALL his working life. Yes, I took his words to heart, stayed well clear of those man-made Hell holes and tried my best to make something better of myself, Thanks Dad for your most welcome advice. Though, as they say, "You CAN take the boy out of the Bush, but you CAN"T take the Bush out of the boy," and I'm still living here though not as a battered, worn down, tired out miner though.
[thevintagenews.com] I guess, but wouldn't evolution have addressed this?
Triphid comments on Oct 22, 2019:
Well, that makes about as much sense, evolutionary and anatomically speaking, as does pissing on raging Bushfire in the hope of putting it out. For example, IF that were the case for their extinction, then would not the same be so for such other primates as well, Chimps being our closest genetic relatives, for one, should also be 100% extinct due to these ear infections, as should at least 90% of other primate species as well? And WHAT exactly caused the other earlier Hominid species to go extinct, was it also rampant ear infections? Eustachian tube defects occur quite often in Homo Sapien infants and adults as well, AND, have been occurring , more than likely, since the first Homo Sapiens evolved, ergo, Homo Sapiens SHOULD be extinct by now as well according to this 'research' article. Almost ALL primate young are born with smaller head sizes than they will have as adults and that is simply because of the birth and pelvic canal size that the infant head has to pass through at the moment of birth. Medically speaking, at least 80-90% of ear infections/inflammations in human infants, for example, ARE the result of the development and constant repositioning that the teeth go through BEFORE they eventually erupt from the gums, the rest being, most usually, due to a narrowing somewhere in the Eustachian tube that was present long before the actual birth occurred which causes an accumulation of ear wax and mucus to 'block' the tube just as it does when we get a 'head-cold', etc, etc.
One of the posts I read indicated that being an atheist or an agnostic is a choice we make.

Triphid comments on Oct 21, 2019:
Well, considering THAT the god entity depicted in the 3 major Abrahamic Religions is, in my opinion, a very Ego-centric, self-righteous entity, to say the least, would explain, to a larger extent, WHY the Believers, themselves, are so often also ego-centric and self-righteous. For example, I have heard many say that " God is in me, I am the hands, feet, mouth, voice, eyes, ears, etc, etc, of God, I am an Instrument of God, God has chosen me personally for precisely that reason." is that NOT being ego-centric?
Why so many posts about God?
Triphid comments on Oct 21, 2019:
I tend to think that, we, Atheists and Agnostics, seem to post/debate about this completely Invisible and Totally Imaginary god thing simply for, A) a bit of amusement, B) to elicit the thoughts, etc, others like ourselves, C) perhaps we either suspect or know that there are Faithfools hiding amongst us and are trying to either draw them out or, better yet, plant the seeds of doubt into their minds.
THE CONCEPT OF NOTHING.
Triphid comments on Oct 21, 2019:
Well, the scientific theory is that, " In the beginning there was a Singularity so compressed was the matter it contained that it eventually exploded and, VOILA, the universe came into being in a HUGE Bang, i.e. the Big Bang Theory was postulated. However, ask any Faithfool and they will ardently tell that " In the beginning there was nothing, only god, and from that 'nothing' god created EVERYTHING." What makes me curious about the Creation Myth is this, How can something that is, according to Theist reasoning (???), for arguments sake, a shapeless, ethereal Entity, A) suddenly realize that it it exists in the first place, B) suddenly realize that IT must create ANYTHING at all simply to prove (???) that it exists AND IS Omnipotent, Omnipresent, etc, etc, WITHOUT there being ANYTHING around it, and, last but DEFINITELY, by no means LEAST of ALL, C) actually CREATE everything and ANYTHING from ABSOLUTELY nothing simply by the uttered word? I mean, that IS about as logical as saying " If Elephants had wings then they'd be birds or bees," is it not? I suppose that, technically speaking, NOTHING is the absence of Something, ergo the vice versa applies as well.
Treat them like mushrooms - keep them in the dark and feed them bullshit.
Triphid comments on Oct 21, 2019:
That has been the motto of Governments, Kings and Queens, Despots, most Religions, etc, etc, since the very beginning,. In ancient Rome the Senate, and later the Emperors, would tell the people that "Everything they were doing was for the good of the people and the Empire because IF they didn't then there were ALWAYS Barbarians waiting in the darkness to storm the gates." I tend to think that politicians and, in some cases, religious Leaders have just taken the old Roman 'fear stories' to the next level simply to keep us in a state of fear so we won't question them and their actions.

Now, as I read yesterday, some bloody Anglican Arch-Bishop has come out in TOTAL agreement with Folau and his filthy, discriminator, deluded tirade as well. Bloody Sportspeople, some of them, in my opinion, seem to think that they are be all, end all of everything, little Demi-gods and are bloody pampered little bratish Heroes to the entire nation. Time Australia ceased worshipping Sports and Sportspeople like Demi-gods and got stuck into the REAL things that make a Nation into a Nation instead in my opinion, we spend far too much on Sports and nearly S.F.A. on improving the country and the people who make it a Nation.

WTF, just 2 'roos and 1 goanna, he's got to be kidding given that everything out in the bush these days is literally starving to death or dying from thirst you'd be pushing shit up hill to even scrape up enough for a McDonalds Children's meal these days. Hey, did you hear the one about the Catholic Missionary and the Aboriginal tribe? It goes like this, Way back in the early days, a Catholic Missionary, traveling and preaching through the bush, comes upon a tribe sitting by a billabong. He gets invited to sit, eat and talk with them and then asks if he can convert them to Christianity. The tribal leader agrees and is taken into the billabong, dunked into the water and the Missionary says, " Go in Heathen, come out Christian." After converting and baptising the whole tribe the Missionary tells them that they " Must not EAT red meat on a Friday from now on." A few weels go by and the Missionary comes across the same tribe, same billabong and there they sit, dining happily on a 'roo cooked in the campfire. The Missionary goes into a rage at the tribal leader about breaking the church ruling about eating red meat on friday, etc, when they are now Christians. The wise old Tribal Leader mere ly gets up and says to the Missionary, " No problem there boss, me just take 'roo into billabong, dunk him in water and say, Go in meat, come out fish."

I'd lay odds on that there'd be uproar such as this country has never heard nor seen before. You could be certain that Josh Frydenburg would DEFINITELY travel a whole LOT further than his mere short trip to Inverell then I reckon.

Triphid comments on Oct 16, 2019:
It would nice, in my opinion, IF we could gather up ALL the politicians who allowed this disgusting thing to happen AND the Overseas Owners of Cubbie Station, etc, and do a similar scene as is in the movie "300" where the Spartan King kicks the mongrels into a pit. But instead take the lot to Sydney Heads and boot the bastards out of OUR country for once and for ALL time. This country and ALL its resources SHOULD belong to ALL of its people, ALL of its people SHOULD have an EQUAL say in how this country is run and governed, how its resources are allocated/used and to whom they are allocated to on an EQUAL basis. Australia ONCE went from a Colony mentality to become a great Nation after the 2 World Wars thanks to the sacrifices made by our soldiers, sailors and airmen and women BUT complacency and apathy replaced the Pride we once had in our National Identity and now, in my opinion, it IS HIGH time for us ALL to Stand Up, be Counted, rethink our system of Government, Proclaim our Independence from under the British Thumb and the Heels of the American Pseudo-Empire and DECLARE with ONE loud and STRONG voice, " We ARE Australia, We ARE Australians."

NASA engineer's 'helical engine' may violate the laws of physics [newscientist.com]
Triphid comments on Oct 15, 2019:
Here we go yet again. One scientist starts to think OUTSIDE of the box and some less than brave fool suddenly screams " You'll be void the Laws of Physics." In my opinion ALL the so-called 'Laws' ARE merely man-made devised/man-made to say the very least and are based solely upon the limited observations and understandings of humans that need everything to be 'fitted' neatly into specific boxes. Gravity, for example, is NOT a Law, it is an attraction/reaction between two or more objects just as is magnetism, so who is to truly say for ABSOLUTE certainty that ANY or ALL of these so-called 'Laws' we make actually apply beyond our minute part of this, as yet, unfathomed, Universe? Thinking outside of the box/es is exactly what got humans to the technological stages we are at now, it was once stated clearly that " Should a human travel faster than a horse could run the human would be crushed to a pulp or torn apart," George Stevenson invented the Steam Locomotive and, voila, humans went faster than a horse can run and still survived," some much for that 'Law.' Our dependency upon thrust driven engines for rockets is merely due to our inherent fear of breaching antiquated and arcane 'Laws,' these thrust engines are inefficient, costly and very expensive as well as extremely limiting just as merely thinking INSIDE the box/es has always been. To truly explore space we NEED to step away, completely, from that which we know that works and is limited by these so-called 'Laws' and discover and create new drive systems that WILL allow craft to travel faster, further and cheaper into the unknown or else just sit back and and scratch our collective arse and say " We are way too afraid to bend/break these 'Laws' we made so that's an end to it all."

Climate Change IS NO fairy story, it IS Real and is happening as we sit and do S.F.A. but listen to the nay-sayers. The climate of Earthy, OUR only home, IS a very delicate thing, it has changed numerous times over the last Millions and Millions over years for reasons that are part of the cycles of both this planet and the Universe BUT this time WE are the root cause, WE must react and do EVERYTHING possible to reserve the harm WE have done and ARE still doing, WE must CLEAN UP our act because the ONLY alternative IS far too terrible to consider.

Excellent version, I have the Don Fardon or Fandon version on CD as well. The Americans locked the Cherokee peoples on a 'Reservation' BUT not until after they forced them to walk from their native lands along the Trial OF Tears to Oklahoma and of the 7,000+ who started the forced walk, 4,000+ men, women, children, babies and elderly people had DIED from Cold, diseases, hunger and starvation.

In my honest opinion your 'Orange Crested Drongo ( Drongo = Australian slang terminology meaning " someone with the intellect, etc, less than a complete half-wit) of a President is leading not only your country, but possibly the world, down the path to yet another ruination of another global conflict. Why, in the name of All Fuck, amerikkkans voted him into office eludes me and why, in the same name of All Fuck, your system does NOT have some legitimate ruling available to remove him from office and power eludes me as well. You claim to be a democracy but, as it stands, it seem very much like your democracy has become little more than a screwed up version of a Dictatorship.

I'd dispute that strongly on numerous accounts. In my experiences, religions have brought with them divisiveness, segregation, discrimination, racism, ignorance, dependencies upon an external power (god being), suppressions and repressions of freedoms both personal and social, etc, etc.

Worshiping, adoring, loving, etc, a Mass Murdering, Genocidal, Misogynistic, Homophobic, Slavery Condoning Egomaniac who, etc, etc, presumably, is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, etc, etc, BUT merely sits back and watches and does NOTHING when there is diseases, cancers, starvation, warfare, etc, etc, happening everywhere WHEN, with a simple wave of a hand, he/she/it could prevent it ALL makes absolutely NO sense to me. I suppose that the Faithfools everywhere do all this and more JUST in case their Sky Daddy has yet another 'bad hair day' and decides, yet again, to enact his rage upon them, one and all.

That IS when I came to realize also that is a " Crack of Dawn (LOL)" since her name was actually Dawn.

Bloody hell, I WAS only expecting to get the wood from the cross dumped in my driveway BUT the council crew decided, so it seems that after my coffee and the lady with her sandwiches, we both deserved a little extra and now we both have a share of a 2 and a half ton truck load of not only the cross plus the dead trees that they have been either removing from around town and the branches they have trimming from the living trees as well, all nicely and neatly stacked along side the driveways. Btw, just did a quick measure of the timber he used, 8" width, 6" thickness and those great council workers have cut it into nice, neat lengths of 12" perfect for the fire place.

Ah, the old wood and corrugated iron dunnies, aka the long drop, blowfly central, squat and swat, pee and flee, parliament house, etc, etc, they had innumerable names to describe them. I can still remember when actual toilet paper was a luxury and we used squares cut from newspapers to do the necessary 'paper work' after the motions were passed, and the flies in summer, the Red-back Spiders, walking up to it when it was pouring rain or freezing cold or hotter than a lizard on a tin roof in a heat wave.

Triphid comments on Oct 9, 2019:
Oh FFS, sharks have lived and ruled in the oceans since the dinosaurs were extinct, before then they had to contend with bigger enemies like the Mosasaurs, when humans discovered that swimming/bathing in the oceans was great fun and an easy way to get clean, etc, humans INVADED the territories of the sharks and placed themselves on the 'possibly' edible snack menu for the sharks. Thanks to Hollywood and their over dramatisations of shark 'attacks' in movies like 'Jaws' almost everyone believes that sharks, the Great Whites in particular, go out of their way just to dine on humans. In fact that is not actually the case since most sharks, except the Bull Shark, actually dislike the taste of human beings intensely they merely see and sense swimmers, surfers, etc, as being the shadowy shapes resembling their favourite snack item, seals, and will naturally go in for a quick snack. As for the Australian Green Party, well in my opinion they're about as much use as a chocolate teapot and as trustworthy as a tissue paper nappy on a baby with chronic diarrhoea. Perhaps they should be looking at how many people have died through the rampant mismanagement of government services and fundings instead and consider culling useless politicians?

Triphid comments on Oct 7, 2019:
As has been the usual ideology with the Liberal Parties over the decades first instilled into them by their 'Messiah' and Cult Idol, Pig Iron Bob Menzies, " The Plebians (common peoples) should NEVER be permitted to rise above their station in life, therefore it Is imperative that their earnings MUSt remain so low that they can only just afford to pay rent, buy the very basics of foods, etc, and NEVER be able to afford the luxuries of owning homes and land for this WOULD threaten the Status Quo by which we, the Upper Classes, can rule and prosper over them." - Robert Menzies, circa 1947 to the Liberal Party of Australia. Hence, that is WHY under ANY Liberal or Liberal/National Coalition Government this country quickly goes down the tubes.

They pretty much shrank away when I calmly asked them what, exactly, were their educational qualifications to be teaching others about religious beliefs and calmly told them that I had a ThD ( Doctorate in Theology and Comparative Modern Religions) and had studied for it AS a life-long Atheist and STILL remain an Atheist.

Personally speaking here, I do NOT think there is much of difference between religion and cultism at all, since they BOTH have a central figure of worship, rely and depend solely upon their followers having blind faith in what they preach and teach, offer up, for the most part, that which can ONLY be attained AFTER Death and NOT before, etc, etc.

Triphid comments on Oct 5, 2019:
Considering that through archaeological studies, etc, the average height of humans from around the time when Homo Sapiens first evolved until around the late Middle Ages was between 5' 3" and 5' 10" and persons taller than that WERE consider to be 'giants' the possibility of anything REMOTELY human being over 10' in height would be more remote than the very edge of the Universe is to this planet. Scientifically and Medically speaking here, Yes, we do find the very RARE and ODD human being these days growing to heights of 6'5" and up to and including 7' 4" but they are A RARITY, it IS only because of the readily availability of more nutritious foods, etc, that the average human height has gone above the 5'10" average of older times since better care and nutrition = larger body sizes and heights. Ergo, these 'giants' of which the Faithfools regularly cite as having lived in biblical times and 'claimed (?)' to have unearthed the skeletal remains of are about as plausible as are their tales of talking snakes and a whale swallowing a human whole and regurgitating him ALIVE and undamaged 3 days or so later.
An aquaintence I know is 100% for declawing cats.
Triphid comments on Oct 4, 2019:
Though I AM not a person who likes cats there is a way, a very simple and easy way, to stop cats from using their claws on furniture, etc. Buy a pair of clippers used for trimming the nails of dogs, use them to trim the claws of cats in the same manner as they are used for dogs regularly then there IS no need for de-clawing.
I often find it extremely mind-boggling just how many "Christians" have never read the Bible.
Triphid comments on Oct 3, 2019:
I have learned and found that 90% of Xrstians ONLY read the parts of their holy book that either, A) their priest/minister has told them to read, or, B) ONLY the parts that suit them them and their beliefs best. I tend to think that this little meme attached says it all quite succinctly.
Just a second.
Triphid comments on Oct 3, 2019:
I often wonder to myself what would actually happen IF I went to one these 'churches' and suddenly jumped and pretend to ' speak in tongues' ( aka babble on like dribbling idiot). Would it have a similar result to when, back in the 70's, I was dared to stand on a street corner in Adelaide, Sth. Australia and pretend to be a new Christian Prophet, we raked in nearly $1,500 in less than an hour with that one?

Triphid comments on Oct 2, 2019:
Though I AM a 100% Atheist I still respect the Earth as being the Mother to all life upon it and the Cosmos being a kind of Father to everything within it, though going as far as worshipping either of those ideas is, most definitelty not for me since " Worshipping" anything/anyone is merely a religious ideology in my way of thinking and that is 1 thing, among many, I refuse to do.
