Jimmy McCann replied to Scott Bidstrup's discussion Did Jesus Save the Klingons? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"You've got a point fictional escapism, no need to think or understand the world. Entertaining but not a classic , the plot is a bit thin and a rehash of earlier publications."

"Yeah, close but no cigar on Adventists either. Ellen White had visions of aliens living on Jupiter. My girlfriend likes to call them Jupitaliens. She also saw the rolling green hills of Saturn, but that was where Enoch (or was it Elijah) was living…"

""In Klingon religion, the original gods who created the first Klingons were slain by their own creations, because they were "more trouble than they were worth". Sound advice for sentient beings regardless of their planet."

"Religion and religious people will find a way to keep their illogical beliefs going. That's the upside of an unfalsiable hypothesis, you can always rescue it regardless of any and all contradictory evidence..God, being an unfalsifiable…"

Did Jesus Save the Klingons?

An interesting article in Scientific American about the challenges that would be posed to religion if and when extraterrestrials are discovered:http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/religion-extraterrestrials-jesus-save-klingons/In the section on Mormonism, the author got it wrong, when she said that in Mormon theology, Earth is the only place on which you can become exalted.  That is…See More

Scott Bidstrup replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Why Does Prince George Have Brown Eyes? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"So...Where did those brown-eye genes come from to begin with?  That's the sixty-four dollar question implied but not stated by this thread. I have this suspicion that somewhere in the deep dark past, someone from southern climes…"

Scott Bidstrup commented on Kevin Morgan's group Amateur Radio Atheists
"There's more at play than just right or wrong or smug presumptions of some metaphysical way of knowing. There is a sense of moral superiority that leads the believer to feel morally superior to non-believers, and the desire to have another…"

Scott Bidstrup commented on Kevin Morgan's group Amateur Radio Atheists
"Emmett, write to me off-list for a cure for your dipole coax problem. As for the damned Christians pushing the prejudices and superstitions of the cult priests of ancient, tribal sky-gods, there's not much to be said there.  Though I have…"

Scott Bidstrup replied to Galen Thurber's discussion Which band is less religious 20m or 17m ? in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"I don't much care for 20, simply because it is a lot more cliquish, and there are no contests on 17m.  As for the religiosity component, it's bad everywhere.  I don't think there's much difference in that regard, but…"

I'm not sure how it happened but the discussion posted twice. Your answer is very interesting but as you can see from Dr. Meaden's answer in the other post he disagrees with you. (My position is that science does not know enough about the nature of life energy to say whether it can exist in the absence of a physical realm and that Atheism means only a lack of belief in gods.) I was wondering if you would post your answer to the latest discussion to see what other opinions it might generate.

Hello Scott, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that gods are phoney and religion is nothing but a great fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Maybe the village accepts your atheism because you are an outsider, and an American one at that?
