Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Yes as a matter of fact I think Charlie was an atheist. Wrong. From My Father, Charlie Chaplin: "I’m not an atheist. I’m definitely an agnostic. Some scientists say that if the world were to stop revolving we’d all disintegrate. But the world keeps on going. Something must be holding us all in...

Ezra Lb. wrote:Belief without evidence, i.e., "faith", is always bad.



You do realize that's the equivalent of me saying the complete absence of faith invariably leads to oppressive totalitarian regimes and rampant sociopathic deviancy that would put Stalin and Jeffrey Dahmer to shame, right?

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

This article is pure bile. But it's also well-articulated, very very scary bile. http://www.filmsforaction.org/news/elites_will_make_gazans_of_us_all/ "Gaza is a window on our coming dystopia. The growing divide between the world’s elite and its miserable masses of humanity is maintained throug...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Care to discuss why Roman Catholicism rather than one of its myriad of competitors? It made the most sense to me. Not so much the less-than-ethical practices of its past (and sometimes its present), which are inevitable in almost every religion, but the core ideology. That's all I'd prefer to say a...

I already have. But the time came when I still had to make a choice.

Besides, the man asked. So I told him.

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

May I respectfully ask if Ben and Frank will tell what kind of god they do believe in?


I've placed my personal faith in the God of the Roman Catholic Church, if you really want to know where I stand.

Re: THE DOCTOR...is in

I *AM* looking forward to the explanation as to how The Mistress escaped Gallifrey's fall and Rassilon's undoubtedly stern talking-to after being banished from Earth. I wouldn't hold my breath. The Master has made an inexplicable return before without any sort of explanation as to how the hell he s...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Mark, why don't you call yourself an agnostic? To be an atheist you have to prove God cannot exist. That is impossible since we are dealing in different realms of reality. . No, you don't. You simply have to believe that god doesn't. Can't prove a negative and all. But atheism is just that---a nona...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

I have every right. You are begging the question sir. You are taking it for granted that can be no good without god, which most of the good people here have denied from the beginning. You may define "good and evil" as "God vs. Devil" - the rest of us have very different definiti...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Now, the physics alone destroyed the illusion. This person was not photographing anyone's aura. But the wish to believe was strong enough in her customers that they were willing to deny reality in order to be convinced. I think you're getting a little closer to the heart of the matter. I don't volu...

Hey, if Moffat cast Helena Bonham Carter as Capaldi's successor, I'd be down with with a female Doc.

I bet DOCTOR WHO's more conservative fans are wailing in terror about the possibilities about Time Lords opened up by "Missy" in the latest episode.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of the most perfect "Halloween movies" ever made, right up there with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE MONSTER SQUAD. It's also the rare film that gets the balance between horror and comedy just right. Most flicks dealing with zombies either tend to treat thei...
