Go to: Godless Billboard Moved After Threats

ImagineAZ's Avatar Jump to comment 16 by ImagineAZ

1. Imagine atheists making multiple and serious threats until the nearest church takes down their sign.

2. If these God buffs really want to make a point, why not fly a few planes into our meeting places?

Go to: Are Dog Breeds Actually Different Species?

ImagineAZ's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by ImagineAZ

As to why we all recognize a "dog" when we see one: I think it's because they're all domesticated. If we see a dog-like animal inside a home or on a leash, we assume it's a "dog." When we see a dog-like animal in the wild, we are not always sure if it's a coyote or some other wild dog, or an escaped pet, or the gone-wild descendant of an escaped pet.

Go to: Unknown 'Structures' Tugging at Universe, Study Says

ImagineAZ's Avatar Jump to comment 28 by ImagineAZ

I think it's fair to say that "the visible universe" and "the universe" are the same thing. The universe is basically the blast radius of the Big Bang, which also is all we can see. The word "universe" is unfortunate, but it's the word we use, so that's that. "Dark matter," "dark energy," "dark flow" and "black hole" are all pretty misleading as well.

It doesn't sound that farfetched that a massive body outside our visible range has created a gravity flow that started bending/displacing space even before the big bang, and that displacement of space is causing our universe to fall into that massive body. I mean, it sounds crazy, but no crazier than anything else.

Ya know what this kinda sounds like? A future singularity.

Go to: The Joke's on Him: Bill Maher could use a lesson in civility from Michael Moore

ImagineAZ's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by ImagineAZ

Ya know, I hear this argument after every single theist/atheist debate or conversation, and I'm hearing it now with this movie.

The believers always shriek "Well, THAT representative of my faith is a moron; everybody knows that! Why didn't the atheist debate/converse with THIS OTHER believer?" Or they shriek "Why are you atheists only picking on the idiots?"

Well, apparently only idiots are willing to speak up in favor of their faith.

I mean, Maher interviewed a Vatican priest and a senator. If there is some greater advocate of Christian faith, bring him/her forward. Have the brilliant believers confront the Bill Mahers of the world. From what I've seen and heard so far, I can only conclude one of two things: either the intelligent, level-headed believers refuse to debate/converse on what they believe, or the intelligent, level-headed believer is a myth.
