Re: The Game of Life and God

Folks, I think we must attempt to rationalize the viewpoint that, "based on science it is more than likely there is no God". I think such a thought exercise will only help us become more rational. So why not attempt to see if there is any logical grounds to argue from such a viewpoint what can be ar...

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

I don't agree with your analysis of the British Empire, Nirvanam. Not that I'm defending it, mind. Just sayin', that's all. Which part of it? Their imperial colonialism and systematic rape and exploitation of other lands? You mentioned "Mutineers". I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with them. More info, ...

Re: The Game of Life and God

Maybe you would be so kind to answer the question I asked in my previous post: Why does there have to be a "why"? Simply because our sciences tell us that we live in a causal universe. This means that every event (or thing) necessarily has one or more events (or things) causing it to happen. Now th...

Re: The Game of Life and God

What? To me it sounds rather like you have an odd view of what science is/is trying to do. Why does there have to be a "why"? You say: Evading the why to argue that this universe was not intended to be the way it is, is well, how do I say this, incredulous to the notion of being rational and scient...

No, you need not investigate it but just do this for a Human Being you happen to know...the next time you notice your children being taught this crap, question their Teacher. That will be more than enough. I don't have children. But I'll tell you what I'll do. Next time I go into a bookshop when I'...

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

I am proud and feel extremely lucky to be born in this land, as are you people about your lands. I do not feel proud to be born in the UK. I feel lucky about all sorts of things, but I do not feel proud in any way of my nationality. Aryan theory is what led to a Hitler and it was poetic justice in ...

Re: The Game of Life and God

Why do we have an electron, a neutron, a proton? Why? I find the simplest explanation, using Occam's Razor, for these is that "they were intended to be there". That to me doesn't sound like an explanation with the fewest assumptions: as soon as you use a word like "intended", that means there must ...

But Nirvanam, I haven't learned anything. The subject is too big. I don't see you as an authority on this. You are not an expert.

Re: Arguments for the existence of God

Folks, come to the "Game of Life and God" thread to discuss whether a God exists or not. This thread is going in circles about chritianity and jesus' divinity and what not. Since some scientific thought is needed, how about visiting the Game of Life and God thread. It gives a perfect example of how ...

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

I never believed in the concept of a master-race, so I have never given Aryan (which I previously misspelt. Oops!) theories a moment's thought. Nor does my knowledge of history (such as it is) extend to Indian history. Sorry! How do you feel about such racially prejudiced theories being taught to c...

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

Nirvanam, you have completely misunderstood what I was trying to say. Whatever may have been the historical truth of the original idea was, and is, largely irrelevant and unknown to most Nazi's and Neo-Nazi's, who do not generally derive their dreadful ideas from history but from ignorance and prej...

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

I don't think many Neo-Nazi's dignify their prejudice with any theory beyond racial stereotyping. The idea of a master-race was largely German. Most believed that the Ayrians were of German and Scandinavian stock. To claim kinship with any from the present sub-continent of India would have horrifie...

Re: The Illusion of Reality

So, Maya, seems a very good explanation of the "reality" we purportedly experience.

Or do we still cling on to the faith we have put in who, how, and where the understanding of reality comes from?

Re: History of Humanity (Neo Nazis and other theories)

Let me ask the question in a different way - Do you believe that there were a group of people who were superior Humans than the ...

I understand from the replies here that folks here don't think such a race existed or exists, or that it makes no sense to even think about it. So, here comes a killer question that will potentially shake your belief systems. Why, then do you allow your children and society at large to study a Histo...

My reason for starting this thread is to show to you that the logic used in Game Of Life and indeed the argument to dismiss of that there is a sapience that is responsible for the universe the way it is, is not sound. In deed if you understand why it is not sound you would definitely stop usin...

Re: Gravity

The first is that we are subject to the gravitational pull not just of distant celestial bodies but of all sorts of massive objects we happen to be near, as well as the very planet we're living on, as Alan H. pointed out. You seem to think that's irrelevant, but I'm not sure why. I am not sure what...
