Go to: Who invented the idea that man made God?

Didaktylos's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by Didaktylos

"Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child" - Robert A. Heinlein (Excerpts from the Notebooks of Lazarus Long)

'nuff said.

Go to: Atheism on the upswing in America

Didaktylos's Avatar Jump to comment 45 by Didaktylos

The analogy that I like to think of concerning religion in the USA is that of the Germans defending Omaha Beach on D-Day. They're in a strong position, well-equpped and supplied - but all their strength is deployed, no reserves for reinforcement or counter-attack and re-supply looks distinctly dubious.

Go to: Thylacine Hunted into Extinction for No Reason, Study Reveals

Comment 3 by ridelo :

How much he looks like a wolf or a dog. How long ago lived their common ancestor? A splendid example of convergent evolution. That common ancestor probably looked neither like a thylacine nor a dog. He could also be our ancestor, I guess.

Considering that thylacines are marsupials and canids are placentals, a very long time ago.
