"I was recently rereading the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and right smack at the top is this drivel: "Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law". (Well the god part is…"

"In this particular case, at least, it worked without the periods (SB said to leave them out immediately following the code, above). Being clueless in this area, I was certain to read very carefully! :)"

"There's also a short piece titled: Life as an Agent of Energy Dispersal written by Scott D. Sampson that appears in the book What Is Your Dangerous Idea?. For what my humble opinion is worth, I found the whole book very stimulating. (Wish I…"

John Secular Smith replied to Johnny's discussion Absolute morality based in self-healing self-organizing systems in the group Atheist Morality
"So, for this argument, let us boil morality down to the kernel of the selfless-selfish distinction. (If you do not agree, please respond.) Are you trying to say that selfless equates to moral and that selfish equates to immoral? If so, I…"

"I always saw life as a mechanism that attempts to create order out of entropy. ATP, the energy of the cell, is created by breaking down complex molecules and using the energy from that process to construct new molecules, which are in turn broken…"

Johnny commented on Sylvain Duford's group Environmental Atheists
"I think natural gas (and biofuel for that matter) are at best transitory sources of energy. Ultimately, it will have to be geo-thermal, wind, solar, low-impact hydro."

Max Polun replied to Johnny's discussion Theory of Evolution derives from Second Law of Thermodynamics ? in the group Atheists who love Science!
"Yeah, one interesting somewhat-related idea that I've heard is that some structures (for example some types of crystals) tend to form because they increase entropy most quickly globally (even if they decrease it locally), and that life may be…"

"I have suspected that life is really "just" negative entropy (negentropy, syntropy). It could be seen that way, but only if you don't take into account the energy input necessary to sustain life. No living organism is a closed…"

Theory of Evolution == Second Law of Thermodynamics ?

I have suspected that life is really "just" negative entropy (negentropy, syntropy). The Theory of Evolution is supported by the Second Law of Thermodynamics, but apparently the Theory might even be derivable directly from the Law!"...the process of natural selection responsible for such local increase in order may be mathematically derived from the expression of the second law equation for non-equilibrium connected open systems, arguably making the Theory of Evolution itself an expression of…See More

Thank-you! Been searching for somewhere to speak openly about my belief-system - free-speaking if you will.
