Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

No evolution is not the cause of extinction. Failure to adapt to change is the cause for extinction. All individual members of a species eventually fail to adapt and consequently die. Most species are already extinct (as much as 99.99% of all species to ever evolve on Earth are already extinct beca...

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

Thanks for telling me about where the speech comes from. We could have nanobots doing the pollinating if the autotrophic bees stop pollinating. I am not talking about wiping out existing living things. I am talking about genetically engineering them so that they can photosynthesise the way plants do...

Compassionist We are on the same page, but your focus might be putting the cart before the horse. Getting political and social will changed to our focus has to come first and people are using their lower animal minds to ignore a problem that they do not feel as it is not right in front of their fac...

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

I think that those who are more fortunate (e.g. with wealth, health, education, intelligence, connections, etc.) should help the less fortunate. I think everyone should receive according to needs and contribute according to abilities.. Quite the wish list, but without the political and social will,...

Gnostic Bishop, earlier I had said that I didn't want anyone to rule the world. By that I don't mean that I want anarchy. I mean that I don't want a dictatorship.

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

I can see where you would be peeved at life and take the view you do. That should not have you ignore that statistically, you are not the norm. I have had my share of hardships as well but what did not kill me made me stronger. You have a second and third wind on that and it has made you strong. Do...

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

[ I want to make life fair for all and the only way to do that is to make every being equally omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent. Do you want the fittest to rule the world or the less fit? The closest you will find in the animal world that has mitigated their penalty for not being the fittes...

All competitions for any resource. You say harm none, yet you will the next time you have to compete.

Are you talking about the harm caused by humans competing for jobs, customers, reproductive partners, resources, etc.? My motto is "Live and help live, live and love. Help all, harm none.

Re: Alex Salmond and atheists

84% of humanity are religious and this is estimated to increase to 87% by 2060. Islam is predicted to overtake Christianity and become the number one religion on Earth by 2060. The fact is secular people have fewer children than the religious. Religious beliefs can be source of comfort but that doe...
