Make a Proud Stand for your Beliefs

#1 Post by John Jones » November 5th, 2010, 3:38 pm

Our modern world offers us (that's you and me) many strange superstitions, ideas and beliefs:

We believe that giving birth is better lying on your back.

We believe that genes can survive death by replicating.

We believe that there are parallel universes created by quantum events.

We believe, with a religious passion, that life is driven by intrinsic selfishness.

We believe that light of wavelength 650nm really IS, itself, red.

We believe in the existence of psychological forces like "disorder" and "imbalance" that move around and affect the brain.

We believe that, in evolution, thoughts can directly move matter.

We believe that we can tell if material is conscious just by looking at it.

We believe that we can advance as a species but we don't consider ourselves as apes, sea squirts or single celled.

We believe that a TV has a unique identity that makes it a TV.

We believe in animism - robots and Artificial Intelligence.

.......But you see, I don't flirt with these superstitions. How about you?

What part of the world do you come from, where they give birth on their backs? No one has supported that here for decades.

The rest of what you said was rubbish too, but I can't be bothe.....................................:sleep:

John, for pity's sake, read through some of the discussions on this forum and see if it helps you learn to put an argument together. Your posts are getting embarrassing.
