"Not the motion of the plates themselves, but the formation of subduction zones and volcanoes. The reason why plate tectonics was brought up was because subduction zones are a way of releasing carbon into the atmosphere, and that's what I…"
"The reason that Venus has no plate tectonics is precisely because of the greenhouse effect. Because all the water's been boiled off, the viscosity of the crust is far too low to allow subduction to happen. So the two questions are…"
"Not likely. Venus' current state is likely the result of a runaway greenhouse effect caused by the boiling off of its oceans. The Earth is not likely to suffer the same fate, even with the current climate change trend, because the…"
"Yeah, I used to follow this guy's vlog. He says a lot of interesting things, but unfortunately he doesn't have any more support than other such ideas. He also doesn't seem to understand the science he uses quite as much as…"
"I'm something of an igtheist, or ignostic. I find the concept of a deity to be incredibly ill-defined, and that most believers in such a deity don't actually have a coherent idea of what precisely they believe. Indeed, I know…"
"Atheism isn't really the absence of religions, it's just the absence of any belief in God. Buddhists and Raelians, for example, are examples of religious atheists, since they follow a religion, but don't believe in any kind of…"
"I have one. I got my most recent one just a couple of days ago, but I've been programming with Arduino for quite some time. Having prior experience with C++ really helped me with learning the Arduino language."
"As a Minnesotan, I am completely embarrassed. Sure, marriage has always been used to refer to the union of man and woman. So what? Meanings of words change all the time. Even if marriage had previously meant "hot…"

One thing that those who are both anarchist and transhumanist find out fairly quickly is that there aren't many such people. Not only are both philosophies on the fringe to start with, but a minority of transhumanists are anarchists, and an even smaller minority of anarchists are transhumanists. This seems completely counter-intuitive to those who think that the two philosophies not only blend together seamlessly, but in a sense require each other.The purpose of this group is to bring…See More

"Yes, not everyone thanks a deity for their survival and nobody should thank their god for a vicious tornado that wiped out so much of what people owned and even took lives, especially the lives of innocent children.

"Tony, I love that clip! "Wolf Gets Blitzed"...tee-hee.
Did anyone read the comments below the You Tube version? they were almost all like, "Yeah, thank the lard for sending a ghastly tornado to kill more than 50…"
"And then, just to confuse things, there's polymath, which is from the Greek poly = much and manthanein = to learn. So, someone who knows a lot. Or at least enough to know that you can get a second crop from that field! Sorry, couldn't…"
