Re: Ain't what it used to be

What I mean is, pull a 22-year-old from the suburbs who's been told what to do all his life, put him in a situation where he can do whatever he wants, and hand him a gun, and a few of them are going to wonder "hey, what's it like to kill someone?" and then act on it. You don't need a gun to kill so...

That would have been polluting the playa, and would have eliminated the chance of developing solar and wind power in the area. Good riddance. Well yah, but currently solar and wind aren't all they are cracked up to be. When I lived in Ridgecrest, CA- I had buddies that worked at the Kramer Junction...

Re: Ain't what it used to be

I say that guns are not compatible with a community where people do as they please and learn what it is to act on their first instincts, shedding the albatross of societal rules. Uhm. Right. I don't recall there ever being any problems when guns were around. Some of the people that first helped cre...

I forgot to say that this line of reasoning is not my own. I just encountered it. My raising the point is essentially an attack on religious fundamentalism. S'okay. I thought you were looking for some kind of logical analysis. I used to like the classes I took way back when. I really need to break ...

God is One and All and therefore God has no parts. Therefore, God cannot be described. Discuss. [Note: this thread exists in response to the Seattle shootings.

How would you respond to a person walking up to you on the Real playa and asking "Where can I find the sex camps?"
Point them to First Camp. Tell them that they play 'hard to get'.

I had written and (I thought) submitted a post, but apparently it fell into an abyss somewhere. I won't rewrite the whole thing, just answer the question.

Hey, some people are very beautiful on the inside.

Unfortunately, you have to skin them to find this out and most people tend to be pretty ugly when you skin them.

My $.02 The only time in the 5 years I'd attended that I got laid was when I was in a relationship and we went toghether. Even then, we only did it one night as the others we were too busy partying or doing stuff. I kind of feel where the guy is coming from- I can't seem to get laid to save my life ...

god-belief is a thought virus; one of which not even the best-educated have completely rid themselves yet. See: cognitive dissonance.

So, if God (to me) is love, and love is measureable on a brain scan, then the existence of God is measurable and therefore proven. You cannot suggest that God needs to be the same in the minds of everyone claiming to believe in his existence. Love is not the same to everyone experiencing it. I thin...

Can you prove or disprove the existence of love? Love is a feeling. My atheism relies more on measurable facts (or the lack of them). Besides, love can be shown in brain scans. It can be disproven. You can point to where its supposed to be and see if its there. Love is also a subjective term. Diffe...
