    I am in total agreement with all of you that it is ridiculously selfish.
    Let me repeat myself. I am apathetic. Maybe you missed that part.

    Regardless of your apathy, it's still selfish.

    Do you have kids? Why are you apathetic about this?

    Just in case you don't understand why people are saying it's selfish, I highlighted the selfish part in red.

    Thanks, chap, but I totally know what I said, and I was not oblivious to how selfish it was when I wrote it.
    Furthermore, if you really want to know, I'm Christian for much the same reason.
    What, do you think it's love for my fellow man that inspired me to jump on the free-ride-to-eternal-life wagon?
    No. If I was into the well being of others, I'd being pushing the lot of you onto that wagon, and I'd be like the brave sea captain that goes down with his ship.
    So, I've really had to ask myself: What am I really doing?
    I'm only recycling for myself.
    I'm only driving a hybrid for myself.
    I'm only eating healthy for myself.
    I'm only supporting business that take a global sustainability mindset for myself.
    And, perhaps the icing on the cake, is that my being a Christian only benefits me...
    So, thank you all for not being oblivious to my selfishness.
    It is choking me to death, it's so obvious to me!
    The way I've chosen to hide my self-disgust from the world is to harden myself in apathy.
    To go on being recklessly selfish, but to just not feel it anymore.
    Shame, isn't it?

    What a healthy outlook on life you have. I love the conflicting beliefs though. Last time I checked, Jesus scorned the greedy and selfish.

    Well, your self-servingness (??) just got completely overshadowed by your honesty.

    If I thought for one second god was real, I'd worship him for exactly the same reason you claim to. :thumbsup:

    You are only fooling yourself no one else, but if it makes you happy [and it obviously does] carry on.

    I think you're getting confused about which side of the argument you're defending.

    You need to be more specific.
    Science has a Creation story....and if your minds accepts that matter is constantly blinking in and out of existence and that matter won the battle over anti-matter and that the expansion of space is accelerating, I don't see why you have problems with a little water acting oddly.

    You are right, everything needs to be more specific except religion, religion can be unspecific or just downright crazy and that's OK, why? because only sad needy people believe it anyway so it doesn't really matter because they will believe anything.

    While there is a mild negative correlation with higher education, the hard sciences as well as most "higher Education" is focused on earthly values, and away from spiritual Truth. So the correlation is to be expected.

    If you can get them to believe in fairy tales they won't need an education and the lack of education will in turn keep them believing in fairy tales for a lot longer.

    The good thing about creationism is that it keeps them close to home and the church, it's the only places people don't laugh at them.

    I'm curious, do you think Mormons, JW's and Scientologists are misguided?

    Global Warming may be an actual analysis. Here in Milwaukee the Glacial ice sheet thickness during the last Ice Age was estimated at about 10 stories and in places about 2/3 the height of the sears tower in Chicago.


    [​IMG]

    Many of us believe that change happens.
    But to think that we could counteract the kind of forces that melted that ice
    (long before we started making ice cubes of our own)
    may well be a fantasy of man's ego.

    Our contribution to global warming might be like that of a bonfire built on the surface of a glacier.

    And then there is the evidence that CO2 increases FOLLOW global warming trends in the past, rather than precede them.

    Plus there is evidence that huge temperature swings are part of the "Normal" global weather patterns and that humans have only been around in most mild conditions.


    We expose our bodies to the pathogen to build up
    a natural immunity to it. We are SO clever.

    Can you IMAGINE how Neanderthal that will look after we actually
    figure out how to selectively stop a pathogen BEFORE we get infected?



    From a human viewpoint, the world is as flat as can be.

    Nobody uses sphere shaped maps to accomplish anything. Not even NASA. I don't think there are such things as curved vectors. I'm not sure there is even a language for curved vectors. "Flat" is 99.9 percent accurate and 100% useful for human communication.


    <snip>

    This topic is not allowed in most discussion forums.

    There is no evidence of life off our planet.

    I've not looked too far into this topic.

    Their creation story is called evolution. It all created itself with no intelligence involved. It just sort of happened all by itself.

    Mormons are not guided at all. They are pretty much on their own to figure it out for themselves. The Jw's work more at a high school level, but I think they do their best to teach people the Bible. I do no not know anything about scientology.

    OK. The complaint is usually about the language used in scripture as not be correct. My response was wrong.
