"The religious mental model is like a computer simulation. I can play Mech Warrior but I would really be deluded if I thought I could actually steal a Madcat & go rampaging through a city. It's only software which is the product of the all…"

"Social support for a reality paradigm. Hadn't thought about it this way. It makes good sense. One could say that Christians & Muslims are feeling threatened because their consensus realities are being eroded through exposure to different…"

"Trying to think & act consistently using a mental model inconsistent with realty. That's a big of a challenge. I'm not up to it. I'll stick with reality. "

"People make up fictional characters; mental models of non-existent people. Matter in our brains is rearranged to encode information about our models. This matter exists. Remove the part of the brain in which the encoded matter is found &…"

"I define "god" as an imaginary friend. Please define what you mean by the term "god". I would call myself an Atomic Realist. Our day to day world is really made up of atoms. "God" is an arrangement of atoms in…"

"I live in an apartment complex that is kind of a way station for people coming into Canada. My neighbours are Hindu, Catholic, Muslim, Zoroastrians, Evangelical Christian, Buddhist, anything you can imagine. Some worship gods & goddesses that I…"

"I saw it spelled "Gawd" on some post. Now, when I use this form I always hear some preacher with a southern drawl who takes about 3 seconds to actually say the whole word. For example: G…a…w…d! Wants you to be…"

Jay Stride replied to Rick Springfield's discussion If the probability of evolution is zero the sun will not shine in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Interesting post. Perhaps quantum biology is the next frontier in life sciences. Personally, I think self replicating proteins are the place to start in the investigation of abiogenesis. Finally, when creation apologists conflate evolution with…"

""Good enough for government work." was one of my engg. prof's favourite expressions. I think we have a practical measure of certainty here that we can work with. Actually, there are enough inconsistencies within both the New & Old…"

"From what I've read it appears that after 150 yrs of "Biblical Archaeology", textual criticism & philosophical wrangling advanced theologians have given up on the God of the Bible. They have not even come up with a completely…"

"I like to take these poll results with a grain of salt. I've met a number of people who identify as Christian & yet have never read the Bible. They have only the most nebulous idea of what it's all about. The same goes for science. I…"

"I've heard Ken Ham use this same liturgy on several occasions. Very similar to some of the poetic books of the bible. Essentially rhetorical questions in poetic form. In response I offer my own poem: What is Going Through Ken Ham's…"

"The YEC people I've met were in deep denial. A woman I worked with claimed that the earth was created old & that fossils, sediment layering, radioactive elements etc. were just put there, by the Christian God, to test our faith. She…"

Jay Stride replied to Sven Andersson's discussion Strange Science in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"HI Sven. Not to worry. Anyone who counts up the generations etc. in Genesis comes up with the same answer: approx. 6000 years. When this was first done in 100 - 200 BCE the date of creation was 5800 BCE. In 1000 CE the date = 4800 BCE. Today YECers…"
