Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Dear Compassionist, The competition between religion and atheism today has two main battlefields, eg. evolution vs. creation, and Big Bang vs. creation. The fundamental weakness of the religious camp is that they can't agree on which God did it since Each religion says that only their God is the tr...

Hi Compassionist, Sorry again for the delay again created by certain difficulties. I don't think I can get "viewtopic" on my computer, only "http". I like your quote: "We are prisoners of causality!" This is a very important question. How can highly conscient animals l...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Hi Compassionist, Sorry I'm so late with this reply. I was very busy today. I'm glad you escaped the Fatwa so we can meet on this Forum! Everybody, including jihadists, were created good. It's the indoctrination that makes them a beast. If you consider Boko Haram, ISIS, Taliban, etc. as non-Islam, ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

DearCompassionist, So you are one of the very few who has escaped the shackles of Islam! Have they put out a Fatwa squad to terminate you? Does it worry you so that you have to be on the alert at all times? Tell us about it! You say you are the only one in your religious outlook. Thomas Jefferson s...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Dear Compassionist, Thanks for the comment. Anyone who can join so many religions in one lifetime like you did is amazing. I am a fan of secularism but i will only condone those religions that "live and let live". All those religions that want to conquor the World should be terminated! Ch...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

The power of religion: Why is it that those bronze-age Pagan religions that we see all over the world are still so rampant today in the 21st Century when science and common sense should be ruling the World? Why is it so difficult to wean a person away from worshipping a mythologiical magician? I gi...

Being prisoners of causality

Things I want to do but can't do due to lack of ability: 1. Go back in time and prevent all suffering and death and injustice. 2. Make all living things equally omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent and be the owner of an infinite number of universes each. 3. End all diseases, health problems, d...

Re: The ethics of technological immortality

I'm not sure it's something I'd want for myself. Is it ethical? Who knows, but I'm not sure why it'd be unethical per se. There are already many things that are unethical where money is concerned: people buying multi-million £ yachts while people elsewhere starve but that's not going to change any ...

Re: Atheist summits aim to find community, and power, in networking nonbelievers

Why are entrenched religions so powerful and tenacious, even when the basis of the religion is as silly as Santa-Claus, the Tooth-Fairy, or some other character out of a fairy-tale? Why is it so difficult to wean beleavers away from belief in magic? Isaac Newton was one of the greatest human minds....

I don't think humans need to have a shared doctrine in order to have solidarity. I believe that we can all share my motto: "Live and help live, live and love. Help all, harm none."

Re: How can we possibly have free will?

free will, whatever it is, is a pretty strange and elusive thing. The following speculation is not about determinism in relation to free will, but I think it sort of relates to our decision making and how "free" decisions are conventionally viewed - in the context of a currently popular T...

no, that is a misleading use of "mere experiencers" when applied to words and actions; even over the rest we can have some degree of control Yes, but the degree of control we have is limited. For example, I have been struggling with my mood disorder since 1997. If I could cure myself, I w...
