Ok I won't send you the source for an "obscure" book then. And obviously I imagine my viewpoint would be in the minority in the local library just as it would be in school books. I already know this is the majority opinion and would obviously make sense to people who are putting the same thought process of biological evolution into the realm of evolution of the ideas of god. Majority opinion isn't my concern and I was never trying to convince anyone of this opinion except for the fact that it existed, orginally all I said was that I disagreed with something, however nice discussion. I'll talk to ya soon.

Good job on the Osama bin laden topic. Probably a lot of wasted effort, given the impossibility of applying reason in there, but nonetheless :)

I've got some work to do on Beyond These Walls. I've received some constructive criticism. I'm going to rework the arrangement and tweak the mix. Thanks for the listen and feedback. When I'm done, I would like to use any song profits to fund DNA testing and other prison issues. We have too many incarcerated people - I think it's over two million and counting. For non-violent crimes, alternatives like drug court should continue being developed. It's ridiculous to spend over $30,000 a year to house non-violent offenders. The stats for drug court are not kind. If you get a chance, check out Song Sprouts, I'm listed under John David Holt. I've got a couple other songs like Crosscut 139. Bye Heather.

Thanks! That means a lot coming from you. I get the game theory angle, but it is being misapplied. He has a general misunderstanding over what laws are designed to do.

Thanks, I'll look forward to the lighter topics, but then of course I seem to instantly gravitate to the hot button issues, but it looks as if I'll be sticking around for a bit.  This is a great site and a welcome resource.  As to something lighter, I noticed the video you posted on complexity and can't wait to get a chance to watch it, perhaps in just a short while.  And until I figure out how to post my own here's a link to an interesting video on How to Dissolve the Problem of Free Will and Determinism from SisyphusRedeemed's YouTube channel.  I try to remember one fact from this lecture when dealing with conflict, which is that our brain forms the decision to initiate a movement 6 seconds before we are aware of consciously making that decision ourselves.  Of course now I'll have to figure out how to post that. Big sigh.  Probably not tonight.  Be well, happy, like that.

Yes I intend to do so at least for a while, but after a bit it becomes fruitless,  as people have their minds set and the change often comes, if it comes, from some internal movement. Unfortunately even with myself I've rarely seen reason move me in a heated debate, but then I leave the conflict, settle down and often realize that I am seeing the issue from a different vantage point, or I see my reaction to the issue in a clearer light.  Or I choose to remain stuck, but at least I know that's what I choose. And of course you're right in that even if one person remains intransigent on an issue still the issue if brought before other members perceptions and gives them some insight that perhaps was lacking previously. I'm not really sure that made any sense, I guess I'll have to break down and start using Word of OpenOffice before posting.  Sigh.  Oh, wait, I just saw that I could enlarge the message box, hallelujah (sorry, couldn't help it), and there's editing tools right at the top.

Hi again Heather, and again thanks for the welcome advise this time. I was at first a bit taken aback by the tone of Sassan's responses, but I knew they were not aimed at me, and then I saw that this is just his style of debate. It really does take all kinds.

I'm glad to add you to my friends. In many ways, this site is a lonely place. It seems hard to get feedback/conversation. Stop on by my page for a cup of coffee sometime. . .

Aw, thanks for the warm welcome!

We live in Wheelock, Vermont, way back in the hills at the end of a dirt road about 40 miles from the border.  We visit Montreal occasionally and love getting up to Quebec City, which is just about 4 1/2 hours from here.  The bike paths through the Townships are a pleasure, too.

Same to you! All I can do when I think of jumping is smile and try my best to go back. Good-day!

Not theists; idiots. There is a difference. :P   But no harm done, I will try to use my opposite world view to contribute to discussion and not to provoke. :)

Seriously, I'm not trying to make anything turn ugly. I'm only here to get a good perspective on atheism and enjoy some thoughtful discussion.
