Why Can't We See God - A scientific explanation Frank Lee Easter, 2005 Physicists have ...
anglophone comments on Sep 15, 2020:
The God of the Bible cannot exist. The phrase "the Kingdom of God" is a nonsense thereby. To call that piece "a scientific explanation" is absurd. It is at best a wild and unsupported conjecture.
Is the end of the world happening this week?
anglophone comments on Sep 15, 2020:
If coincidences never happened then a lot of statisticians would be out of work. My own world will end when I die. Are you telling me something about my own death that I don't know about?

anglophone comments on Sep 10, 2020:
I have no beliefs. It is trivial to show that both the God of the Bible and the God of the Torah cannot exist. Nobody has ever produced any falsifiable evidence of the existence of any other gods, so I regard them as fictional. The same goes leprechauns and fairies. BTW: The word "belief" has at least four different meanings which depend on context. P.S. My world view is evidence-based. No belief (in the religious sense) is required.

A case for nudity?

No, I am not prepared to go nude. I'll get too fricking cold in winter! (And I'd get sunburned in summer.)
Could the Big Bang be wrong?
anglophone comments on Sep 9, 2020:
Um, I feel quite comfortable with the notion of the Big Bang. I am also quite comfortable with the notion that the concept of time before Big Bang is a mirage and that the concept of time before the Big Bang is also a nonsense. The question of "Why did the Big Bang happen?" begs all sorts of questions about the nature of time and the nature of causality which question (as I understand it) has yet to be satisfactorily addressed by cosmologists.
I need some help. Is anyone here an astrophysicist or an astrobiologist?

Hello all.
anglophone comments on Sep 4, 2020:
For starters, I have no beliefs. This is because my world view is entirely evidence-based, and renders belief superfluous. Nobody has ever demonstrated the existence of ghosts and spirits, the latter with the exception of spirits that come out of bottles of cognac, whisky, whiskey, gin and armagnac (etc). Aliens may well exist or have existed. The current explorations of Mars may provide an answer in the next decade or so. Intelligent aliens would have more nous than to make contact with the warlike microcephalic goons (a.k.a. homo sapiens) that currently infest the planet Earth (a.k.a Sol III).

Here’s a question.
anglophone comments on Aug 30, 2020:
Here's an answer. As an atheist, I do not "do dogma", nor do I have any "beliefs". One solution to "the meaninglessness of life" is to your own meaning to your own life. The nearest thing you will get to a "core philosophy" is the asking of the question "Where is your falsifiable evidence to support your existence claim of your particular god?", and not all atheists subscribe to that view. I regard *all* dogma as dangerous. "Belief" is an ambiguous word, which ambiguity is exploited by Bible thumpers. My world view is entirely evidence-based. Groucho Marx: "I wouldn't be a member of any club that would have me."
This from my fundie sister .
anglophone comments on Aug 28, 2020:
Her thinking processes are a cognitive disaster area. She fails to think analytically. She fails to think critically. She fails to think rationally. She fails to think dispassionately. I would see no point in trying to engage her power of cognition, as she "cannot think straight".
Why do Atheist like to talk about God so much?
anglophone comments on Aug 28, 2020:
Perhaps for exactly the same reason that God Mobsters try to convert atheists, Muslims, Jews, Pastafarians, Shinto, Confucians, Dreamtimers, Hindus and Mayans to their own particular flavour of Christianity.

anglophone comments on Aug 27, 2020:

Honest Question
anglophone comments on Aug 9, 2020:
I am atheist about both the God of the Bible and the God of the Torah because it is trivial to show that neither god can exist. In the strictest sense of the word, I am agnostic about all other gods because nobody has ever produced any falsifiable evidence to support the existence claims thereof.

anglophone comments on Aug 3, 2020:
It can get even harder in some cases. In my own case, I have the symptoms of idiopathic reactive hypoglycemia, which symptoms have been verified by no less than four independent doctors. The issue comes with the current state of medical research, in that there is as yet no common agreement between researchers about the time delays between food consumption and any subsequent hypoglycemia, and the levels of blood glucose to be used as a definition of hypoglycemia. Even two trained endocrinologists scratched their heads at what my body is doing. Essentially, I am on my own with this condition, and I need to train all relevant medical and ancillary staff that I encounter in any hospital.

anglophone comments on Jul 19, 2020:
First up: the way you share all your feelings here I find to be wonderful. But to return to the matter of memes (and I will also add clichés to that): There are times a well worn theme, be it a meme or a cliché, adds a necessary nuance to my words precisely because it is hackneyed, so I have no hesitation in using them.

anglophone comments on Jul 18, 2020:
I do not suffer fools gladly, and I have no time for conspiracy theorists. By way example, I regard anybody who claims that 5G causes coronavirus as being willfully delinquent when comes to scientific matters: they are quite unable to explain how the former causes the latter and refuse to challenge their own assumptions.
