Re: Science and Emotions
Of course, I don't believe that God was a creation of humans. I can never imagine letting go that much....because if God did not exist, reality itself is a cruel, uncaring, and harsh mistress...and gives no hope to anyone.

Reality just is. Perhaps it is your perception that needs adjusting, instead of patching up an uncomfortable view of reality with a god mythology.

Update and Plans for 2019 and Beyond...
Perhaps it is your perception that needs adjusting, instead of patching up an uncomfortable view of reality with a god mythology.
Perhaps. When it comes to my health, I dont think about God much...I realize that I am the one responsible for my health and progress. So I weighed in at 217 this week. More exactly, my weight is on a spectrum between 217 and 211...I always use the highest number for my chart. I went and had a Dexa Scan.

My Numbers look better than they would have looked a month ago when I weighed 232, but they are on the high end.
Total Mass: 213.0 lbs.....Lean Mass: 146.5 lbs.......Tissue %Lean: 68.8%.....Fat Mass: 58.5 lbs.....Tissue %Fat 28.5%

So I am continuing this diet until I reach 18% body fat at the most...then continuing to eat basic low carb for the rest of my life, adding only healthy low glycemic vegetables back in to the mix in increasing amounts as I reach my goals...the real number that has to improve is my insulin resistance.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul
