This was originally posted in reply to a blogger who felt that lack of belief in the Creator leads to immorality.

Rene Benthien replied to Karl's discussion Are all religions equally bad?

I spent a lot of time studying mustache theory. The correlation is uncanny. For example, Hitler. And, umm... Joseph Stalin. And Mario.

Whereas you may remember, say, Susan B. Anthony? No mustache. Coincidence? I think not. >:[

Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.

Try joining groups like the busy science-based discussion group ORIGINS (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ).

I have been running a long discussion (over 50 posts) there about being "Proud to be Atheist" because we all should be,
seeing that atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground over the nonsense of the irrational, superstitious god believers.

Science: The Random Adaptive Machine

Posted on May 4, 2009 at 12:00am 0 Comments

The machine in this hilarious video reminded me of a passage in Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann's entertaining book The Quark and the Jaguar.

The first section is on Complex Adaptive Systems. These systems seek out rules and patterns in the information that is presented to them. They are then able to make useful predictions (more...)
