Rick, im sorry, so sorry
It takes a lot of courage to even contemplate such a confession, much more to actually do it. There is no judgment here Annette, you are among friends. We're so very proud of you.

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

But I do draw the line on the worst personal attacks, the kind that belittle others. There ought to be no room for that in a civil discourse. That's a fair point. I could have simply muted Abe without comment. I reacted the way I did because he made some comments that I found deeply offensive. My r...

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

Abe is carefully and tactfully assassinated in such a way it would appear as foolishness to come to his defense, which is btw Byblos why it is hard to mod the often carefully crafted attacks against him that Ed does. BUT, for all his QAnon and even awkward statements, there are some diamonds in the...

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

For pity's sake, Abe, you'd give an aspirin a headache. I've really tried to be patient with you, but I've reached my limit. You don't know near enough to grasp how little you know and that sad condition is obviously permanent. Oh well. You're going back on my ignore list. Seriously man, I don't ca...

How many things on Earth could be aliens?
There's a bacterium that some think could have originated from Mars. I can't find the link.
Does that mean we may all be martians? :mrgreen:

Re: Aliens?

EVERYTHING in all eternity past originated with God! One of God's characteristics is that He takes delight in being creative. Another is that he never changes. And that would tell me that He has forever been creating something, somewhere - whether in other non-physical dimensions or physical ones. ...

Re: Top Ten Reasons I'm An Atheist

Lol morny, Just like you, I value science a great deal (after all, I am a scientist). Unlike you, however, I know well the limitations and boundaries of science as a tool. Nice to hear of your science background. As per my immediately previous post to Philip, please explain specifically how I don't...

Since material can only come from material ,does the immaterial even exist? of course it does because even you admit that consciousness, intelligence are NOT material BUT they DO exist.
Intelligence and consciousness are human abilities.

Re: Top Ten Reasons I'm An Atheist

In fact, I would venture an educated guess that in most cases, the exact opposite is claimed, i.e. the law of parsimony (Occam's razor) where simpler solutions are more likely to be correct even for complex problems. Not sure how relevant parsimony or Occam's Razor are here. The main issue is how w...

Re: Top Ten Reasons I'm An Atheist

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. That's a rather extraordinary claim. Please provide your extraordinary evidence to support it. It sounds like a typical subjective claim to me; why does it sound extraordinary to you? Ken As opposed to what Kenny, an objective claim? Yes! as oppo...
