"I argue that she didn't have a name, but we had eggs long before chickens. ;)
Originally things were asexual, but nature found that there was not enough randomness there, and for more complicated life, that randomness was needed, and is why we…"
"I agree, it could have been that I was designating another pattern, like .999999699999969999996 or whatever, that is exactly part of my point. Who are you to say what I meant by my use of that '.999'? I do understand what you two are…"
"One is giving, and one is receiving... Although, in another moment or so, the reverse could be true...
Maybe if that boy was licking the 'savior's purple behind and not standing on his injured hands, he might not be in jail! It's all…"
"No, agnostic means you believe in something being out there, just not sure what it is, you haven't picked yet. I am just saying that it does us no service to say that something that cannot be proven, a negative without qualifiers, is…"
"Hopefully this time replying won't crash the browser... lol 'something is telling me something' ...Muahaha!
If it is not simply, 'you have a kid, now you get sterilized, period, end of story' (until we reach a more…"
"Yes, I get what you are saying, even if the purple boxes didn't explain much, simple concept, but it is a matter of semantics, and technicalities. Because while that is true, there is also also the difference of 0.000...1, you will never find…"
"Ah then yes, then there is that, but I wouldn't call it 'dropping like a rock', and until the population is actually going down, by a lot, we are still in deep, deep trouble. It's still growing at an exponential rate, it's…"
"Exactly, as for the number, it just depends on how exact you wish to be, and what you are representing by the '...'. If you mean the irrational number, with an infinite .999's, then it's basically 100, but not quite. effectively,…"
"Well, 99.99999999999...% I can't, in all honesty, say 100% on any topic. But no, as fun as supernatural things are in fiction, that is the only place I believe they exist, but I am always open to new evidence. On the other hand, every religion…"
"Only in a few places, most of the world is still increasing in population, including here, and it is mostly the less educated who are having them. It has slowed some, but it is still going up by a lot. One birth every eight seconds, and one death…"
"Well, even if you count that as a 'gender swap', it doesn't change anything for the argument, for two reasons that I can think of off the top of my head.
1) They will just say that "Adam" still came first, even if he were…"
"@Richard, Then what you are saying is that according to Hamm, if we wish to ever meet alien life, then we must be sinners and go to hell?
Well, that's just one more reason, as if not wanting to spend eternity with people like Ken Hamm…"
"Well, it's not so much religion itself, as there are a lot of other topics that can work people into that same fervor (politics for example, though that is almost the same thing in many people's case). If you challenge anyone's…"
"If your ideas are so pathetically bad, that they do not hold up to scrutiny, then they deserve to be criticized and mocked. If your beliefs were in fact, the perfect word of an all knowing, and all powerful god, then it would not matter who said…"
