The leadership needs followers. If the people you lead are too smart they can’t be fooled anymore. To this end leaders seem to be giving the kids an easy ride in school. They mandate tests that funding and careers are based on ensuring that teachers basically teach the tests and no more. In most colleges the standards are lower than ever and you find graduates having to get jobs they could have gotten out of high school. Education in the United States rates Continue reading
Please do not present your guesses as unalterable truths. If you have two partial bones you cannot a whole creature make. It would me the height of luck for your guess(a sin against science) to avoid the effects of chaos. I know you cannot predict every variation possible in nature and thus eliminate chaos.
I can except a result based on all current information presented as such, but when additional information becomes available a true scientist does not ignore it. These results must stay in flux as new information comes along and new results incorporating the new information must be made public. Otherwise you are like those who burned Giordano Bruno and eventually history will judge you accordingly.
The public bases its understanding of the world heavily on the results of scientific investigations performed by individuals who are trained and equipped for the job. It should be a criminal act for a person revered as a scientist to mislead the public by lying or guessing. Guessing is lying. An ‘educated guess’ or ‘hypothesis’ needs to be proven before it is presented as fact.
So…because the universe exists and science has yet to prove how it came into existence down to the first millisecond that clearly indicates that a kind of magic was used by a supreme being in that first millisecond to get things started.
OK…so the creator what has ze done since to deserve worship? (this is where religious cowards will quit reading!) If indeed the hand of the creator was in that first millisecond perhaps recognition is deserved but is worship as a deity deserved?
Now then, where did this supposed creator come from? Logically nothing comes from nothing for if that were the case one might accept that the energy for that first millisecond came from nothing and have an end to it. No, nothing comes from nothing everything must have an origin therefore where did the creator come from? Did the creator have a creator and if so shouldn’t one be better off worshiping our creator’s creator? What of our creator’s creator’s creator…?
Now we find ourselves in a repeating quandary…whatever shall we do?
Now then if a creator exists perhaps someone can let me know what ze has done to deserve deity status? Science has shown that since that first aforementioned millisecond the creation of the universe is pretty well understood.
Ok, so let us assume there is a creator. Now then what is our actual relationship with ze? Are we as subjects to a good king who actively takes care of us? If you think so ask the poor, the starving, the terminally ill, the enslaved, the persecuted, those subject to all manner of prejudice, and the list goes on and on. Even perhaps those who asked for help at one point and wound up holding their dead child in their arms. Perhaps we are looked on more as pets, and not well looked after either.
I challenge anyone, human or otherwise, to disprove anything here written. I do have an open mind and will consider any information presented.
