It is not clear that Jesus actually existed. There are no records of him while he was alive, not even Roman records. In fact the first stories of Jesus came out 400 years after he supposedly lived. Don't believe me? Google it. Also, there are loads of virgin birth stories, from Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Aztecs, the Mayans, in Tibet, India…

That's an interesting question - what was god doing before humans came along. We have plenty of indirect evidence of god in the form of writings, churches, personal experiences, wars fought in the name of, etc. but only for humans. Before humans arrived, there is not a shred, or even hint of evidence, direct or indirect. In fact, we don't find evidence for god outside of humankind even today. We don't see termite temples in honour of the creator, or dogs that pray. It's so obvious that god is a figment of our imagination, that the question should really be: why do so many people still believe?

Funny but equally disturbing that such a stupid song could be so infectious

If the Supreme Court has changed the 2nd Amendment before, then it can do it again. How about allowing guns for hunting, sport and collectors - and leave civil war to political process and rule of law to prevent.

Would you feel safer in a football stadium with 100,000 people all armed, or 100,000 people where some are legally armed and some illegally armed? Bear in mind that in 100,000 people, there will be nutters.

How do you describe colour to a blind person?

Comment: 3281 days ago
Maybe colour could be compared to sound. The timbre (character of the sound) would be the colour. So a traditional flute might be yellow, a raw and raspy flute might be yellowy beige, the colour of unhealthy shit. The pitch would be the tone, so a piano playing a high A might be pink, a low G might be burnt umber, and middle C, Ferrari red.

In a world of skepticism, is it still possible to believe?

Comment: 3310 days ago
We have no choice but to believe in evolution because that's what the evidence says. If there was evidence for God, we would have no choice but to believe in God. That's how it works, evidence dictates the truth, not an ancient book, a con man's fantasy, or a personal desire for meaning.

Italian judges must be atheist otherwise they'd rule that earthquakes are an act of God, surprising in a country where over 80% of the population are Catholics.

Ten things you didn't know about Mormons

Comment: 3331 days ago
In the fifties, Mormons believed that the only way a black person could get to Heaven was as a slave, presumably to serve the whites already there. In 1978, the Mormon Church received a revelation from God to revise their racist policy. Today blacks are allowed in Heaven. Good to see God is moving with the times.

Is homosexuality unnatural?

Comment: 3353 days ago
For those who don't know or think otherwise, gay animals are common. From Wikipedia: "…homosexual behavior, not necessarily sex, has been observed in close to 1500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them." This is according to research done by Canadian biologist Bruce Bagemihl. If you don't believe me, google it.

Michio Kaku - Brain Net will replace the Internet

Comment: 3355 days ago
I'm surprised that Michio Kaku seems to imply that we'll never make a self-aware computer. Whatever self-awareness/consciousness is, whether it is created inside our brain, or if it's something external that we 'plug' into, or whatever else you care to imagine, it evolved. Humans are self-aware, chimps probably, mice maybe, flies probably not. The point is that at some time in the past, there were no animals that displayed self-awareness, and now there are. Evolution did it in a few billion years, I think we'll do it in a few hundred. Science is like evolution on hyper-steroids; super-efficient proactive selection rather than super-slow natural selection. I think it's only that we don't yet understand the laws of physics deeply enough that prevents us from creating a self-aware machine.

"Science Guys" from Creation Museum challenge Bill Nye

Comment: 3375 days ago
Many scientists in history (more the further you go back) were religious but I think that's a part of the transition from religion to science in providing answers to the big questions. My guess is that the proportion of religious scientists is declining, and that some time in the future, religion as we know it will be relegated to the same league as the Flat Earth Society. Unfortunately, I don't think any of us will live long enough to witness that.
