lucas ferguson replied to Joe Sherbourne's discussion What are your favourite atheist quotes?
"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there…"

lucas ferguson replied to A. Noni Moose's discussion Hate crimes..??
"You are saying that the same crime deserves the same penalty, and I don't think I've ever disagreed on that point. A lot of your arguments are against what you think I am implying, and I agree with what you've said about…"

lucas ferguson replied to leveni's discussion Should God be tried, in absentia.
"I agree with Pat. It would be like trying to charge Santa Claus with breaking and entering, or Frankenstein with graverobbing. Real people can be held responsible for their actions though, and not be allowed to hide behind their religion as an…"

lucas ferguson replied to eric stone's discussion Let's all send support for Jessica Ahlquist again - the cretins RI are at her again
"Long term we might improve. There is good reason to believe that many of the younger generation of religious believers follow the rules because the older generation tells them to, but when they become the older generation the same thing happens…"

lucas ferguson replied to Dustin Roy's discussion Religion drives me crazy!
"I definitely have. The various acts of terrorism haven't affected my view because I'm fortunate enough not to have been personally affected by them and it is the sort of thing I expect from powerful religions based on historical…"

lucas ferguson replied to Russell Pangborn's discussion With Religion, man exploits man, without religion?????
"Without religion I would guess less brutal but also less productive. Religion can be a uniting force among its adherents and the ability for a few people to more easily control large groups of people could have given ancient religious man an…"

lucas ferguson replied to A. Noni Moose's discussion Hate crimes..??
"Jay, you are missing my point. I agree with you that in both the cases you described there is a threat of indimitation that should be taken equally seriously regardless of race. However, you have compared 2 different actions which equate to the same…"

lucas ferguson replied to Mathew T.'s discussion A real Kalamity
"I'm surprised you say this as in the video you linked to, Alan Guth says (around 12.10) that the universe can't go infinitely into the past although it can into the future. Therefore I say this means he accepts the 2nd premise. At the very…"

lucas ferguson replied to Mathew T.'s discussion A real Kalamity
"I've previously not commented on whether space and time started at the big bang. From what I've seen of experts interviewed on the subject, we don't know, and the english language starts to have trouble even describing what we…"

lucas ferguson replied to Mathew T.'s discussion A real Kalamity
"I've backed up my claim that the 2nd premise is generally accepted by science. Your argument appears to be that maths is sometimes wrong therefore the big bang theory is wrong if it uses maths. This is very poor reasoning."

lucas ferguson replied to A. Noni Moose's discussion Hate crimes..??
"Which of my comparisons are you objecting to and why? I think you have misunderstood me. I am not saying that we should be more lenient if crimes do not have a "hate motive". I am suggesting that hate crime legislation could provide a…"

lucas ferguson replied to Mathew T.'s discussion A real Kalamity
"According to the article below, and I can find other similar articles, the big band theory is generally accepted within the scientific community, is well tested and explains a range of observed phenomena. I do not think you have any good reason not…"

lucas ferguson replied to Marcus A Pryor's discussion Hyperintelligent ancients.
"Lots of ancient knowledge was lost during disasters such as the burning of the library at Alexandria or when advanced civilisations fell. Much of that was not rediscovered, probably because of different priorities of subsequent cultures or inventors…"

lucas ferguson replied to A. Noni Moose's discussion Hate crimes..??
"The intent behind a crime or action does make a difference. Intent is why murder and manslaughter are different crimes and why there are such things as extenuating circumstances. If I burn a small amount of rubbish on someone else's lawn, it…"

lucas ferguson replied to Amber's discussion Advice on coming out to mom
"I agree with Michael that there is no easy well to tell you mom. Also, my best wishes for her recovery and for you and your family to cope with her illness. Having said that, my advice would depend on the circumstances: - If there is a high risk of…"

Welcome, lucas! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
