Go to: The Gruen Transfer - The Pitch: Banning All Religion

MekoninBrisbane's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by MekoninBrisbane

To give this some context guys, The Gruen Transfer is a TV show about advertising. Each episode two agencies are given an impossible sell, kill everyone over 80, bring back child labour, invade New Zealand, that sort of thing. The agencies change every week as do the challenges. Those agencies that refused to play the game missed out on the only chance an agency gets to nationally advertise themselves. Amazing. Versions of the holy game of cricket can be played everywhere. I have played at the beach, in offices and warehouses, in back yards and even on designated cricket pitches! To assuage your heresy please turn toward the Gabba and bow.

Go to: Catholic church gives blessing to iPhone app

I suppose all Catholics would have to tick the box about superstitious practices! They are expecting this ridiculous charade to have some effect, after all. I bet they don't have a box to tick if they have raped any more children.

Go to: Gift suggestions

How about thinking outside of the square... Give her a learn to dive gift voucher. Diving is great fun, educational and challenging. I have given this a number of times and it has always worked out well.

Go to: Does Science Prove God Exists? This guy thinks so.

MekoninBrisbane's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by MekoninBrisbane

What the fellow is saying is that the singularity at the beginning of the universe is God. I have been reading about this for a while now and have lots of problems with what he is saying.

All we really know about this singularity is more about what it wasn't than what it was. E.G. It wasn't in time nor in space as both were created at that point. It had no before as there was no time. It had no size as there was no space for size to exist in. At the Big Bang suddenly all the mass in the universe was concentrated at that one point, then came the time of inflation when space/time grew. There isn't any room for a cosmic intelligence, no outside for a god to exist in, no before for a god to think it up. Basically he's talking wishful thinking crap.

However there IS a way to prove through quantum physics that God does not exist. The most famous QP experiment of all time (and the most weird ) is the double slit experiment. Here is a cartoon that goes through it and explains how it works.

Now IF there is a god and that god sees all as they all do. Surely s/he is looking through that slit and 'collapsing the wave' so that the interference doesn't happen?

But there aint is there?

I wonder where the energy came from to turn his body into neutrinos? And what reassembled it again - was it like they do in in Star Trek?

Well, I just designed and printed a set of bumper stickers that I hope to distribute amongst local atheists.
I also posted a cool wordle on their gallery - check it out :
