Yes, there are good scientists on Nexus, and absolutely everybody on Nexus has a high level of commonsense. That's what it takes to be an atheist: deep commonsense.
Hi, thanks for the comment. I read physics at St Catz some years ago :-)
And I never believed a word of my Catholic upbringing from since I can recall - and this must be some achievement as I lived in Rome right next to the Vatican. But my grandfather was a devout communist who hated priests, so I guess there was a balance. Sundays were devoted to black and white movies in the local cinema, rather like the film Cinema Paradiso. By he age of about 8 I'd invented my own meditations... but that's another story :-D
Howdy from Texas. Thank you for the greetings and welcome. I'm a graduate of Texas A&M University, located in College Station, Texas. I received my degree in History and minored in Business. I was fortunate in that with an undergraduate degree in History you essentially choose half the classes yourself to receive your degree.
I took a variety of classes. From science to engineering. I even saw Mrs O'Hare speak once. I had heard she was a colorful speaker and it was true. She was also very well educated. I honestly believe that she spoke that way just to get the "other side" all up in arms. If that was the case, it worked.
But I also realized that, "in the tween the two shall never meet." At least not in our lifetime.
Ah number 666, this is one of my favourite numbers.
It displays an attractive symmetry.
Each 6 is an elementary one-turn spiral, and the triple spiral was the mark (inferentially, when I have my archaeological hat on) of pre-christian Neolithic-Age female deities. viz. the triple goddess.
Christians of course hated the pre-existing female divinities, and resolved to eliminate them by empowering their patriarchal church system to do so.
A godbot told me recently that he would never buy an auto with 666 on it. He was terrified at the superstitious thought, and told me that by accident a friend of his, some years ago, had, without noticing, bought such a vehicle--and very quickly got rid of it again. Delete Comment
Thank you very much. I will find it and read about it.
I do admit that I have a lot to learn... I also know that it will always be that way with math and science.
If you don't mind, will it be alright to ask you questions and bounce ideas off of you when I have them?
