Re: Detecting Intelligent Agency Where There Is None
Chess champs make poor war generals.
That was very Zen.

Apparently not.
Are there jitterbugging quarks which accidently create universes, computers and pineapples?
Apparently some PHDs think so and now they will explain it to you and show you why you are stupid.

Electrons are also required. Especially for the pineapples. You can't have pineapples without electrons, they just wouldn't taste the same.

why on earth would they endure such suffering to the point of death?
Indeed. That's up there with nineteen men hijacking four airplanes and flying them into buildings (and the ground) and their own firey deaths. There is no way they would have done that if Mohammed had made up any of the Quran.

Re: Too many competing experiences

It's not actually a song, which is kinda where the metaphor breaks down.
If we are speaking metaphorically, however, I am fairly certain that the "song" was not "written" by an imaginary invisible genocidal lunatic with a grudge against people who eat lobsters, wear socks made out of a cotton-nylon blend, and pick up sticks on Saturday.

Re: Flood Thread

It was written by genocidal diety called 'NATURE'.
You ain't sinning by eating pork. But be cautioned: pigs eat anything, even their own crap and their offspring, and their digestive system processes in 4 hours - not 24 hours as cud chewing animals which consume only grass and herbs by their multi-process stomachs.
Lobsters, like all scavengers, clean the planet eating dead debri - even the toxic stuff. Such are the biological wonders of the Hebrew bible. This book also declared the pig to be the only creature among trillionsof ithers which displays one unique trait: it has split hooves - but does not chew its cud. Wow - is that a lucky guess or what!?

Re: Flood Thread
You also bumped the verse which says it was a regional flood, applicable only to Noah and his household. I think you also bumped the first recording of Mount Ararat - listed in its correct location. Is that great aerial photography or what!
Judge not only what one says - judge also of what they do not say! A lie-by-omission is - syrprise, surprise - a lie.
