Mmm, it must be tough being him right now. Actually didn't you guys start it. We have long memories. Not as bad as those kiwis though, they are still crying about that ball that slipped out of chappel's hand and rolled along the ground.

It's the same as it has been for years on this site. The same people saying "shit, dumbass, turd", etc. , as if those are arguments. The reality is that these people here would not be given the time of day by their heroes Dawkins, Harris, Krauss or the late Mr. Hitchens.

Those people at least, try to deal with the issues in a responsible manner.

If this universe is a simulation as has been postulated, it has profound implications for the religious and atheists alike. Intellectual simplicity and comfort, on this site, always trumps challenge and real debate

Oh no! Poor Francis. If Francis could handle a real debate, I'd probably go for it, but I doubt Rancis can handle it. Likely Francine would just retreat back like Rancid used to and avoid questions, keep bringing up straw men and be all around irrational anancephalic.

Does anyone know when the baseball season starts?

Yet another person who would cause the esteemed Mr. Dawkins to recoil in disdain.

Ahh, good old Mr Larwood - Bodyline really did stir up some shit!
Perhaps murrikan baseball could be spiced up with a similar tactic. ;)

I just sprinkled calcium chloride on my driveway. The snow has made it really icy. I hope calcium chloride won't harm my cement.

Davin 12-05-2014 06:32 AM

I kind of miss having snow.

I had baked beans for dinner tonight with grated parmesan.

My dog had three shits on this morning's walk. I'm so jealous.

And, if the universe is a simulation, there is a creator of sorts, reality is an illusion, nothing is here, including us, and the scientific evidence you rely upon for your atheism does not exist.

There are many simple tests you can do to prove your assertion - even the bible has a couple, like drinking poison or playing with rattlesnakes.
You could drink acid, or turn your stove burner on high, wait until it's glowing cherry red, and then firmly plant your hand on it and hold it there.
None of these things will harm you, since it's all just a simulation!

Yet another commentator who misunderstands the issue. Even if we are sentient entities within a simulation, since pain and disfigurement are part of the program, we would experience those things even if we are digital in our existence.

Your too-quick conclusion that you understand the issues is misplaced and your "tests" would prove nothing.

Nothing but a philosophical exercise, which surely no-one takes seriously other than shitlord #1 (*demoted)'s unnamed scientists.

Francis repeats an ancient headline, in a failed attempt to engage with bright people.

We are an illusion only as far as a necessary vehicle for genes.

I wonder how the Frantard would react to reality if he got his useless shrivelled testicles caught in a bear trap.

Do they actually allow fourteen year old boys to post on this forum?
