I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being... The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism...

- John Dunphy

Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man. - Albert Einstein

90% of you (here) just jumped on his sh*t. Real smooth of you all to witlessly
make frostedman's (John Calvin's) point...even if you did miss his meaning....
:mrgreen: .

...mention G-d here....and tell us who won't respond with critical remarks?
These are the ones that hide well from the blunted fingers that poke, mock,
chide, criticize and doubt. We are the courageous meek. One never
knows how many do accept the phenomenon of G-d...it's a massive army...did
you not figure this? Your a minority and like it...pity, but you do teach us well. Those
that claim to believe and pervert that claim with self-righteous devastation get
to join you.

Moral equivalence and social relativity dose not an ethical benchmark make.
There are no "physics" in philosophy if a truth (an absolute) isn't alluded too.
To some here it may not be G-d, but damned if you won't try for a simple
truth...Your built for it. Handle it...even if it's to prove that color has a
substance...good luck.

...and hey...to realize your really right about anything is to subvert the
perfection of your imperfections. One leaves onesself open to not being teachable,
which is ignorant. How else are you to know what to improve...and improve...and improve...etc..(it's fun)....?

You could declare atheism and resolve a lot of this growth agony and anxiety
by merely accepting death as the final "click" and that there is a complete end
to all this, thus giving yourselves all the room to rationalize and justify any
which way you choose...it is your freedom.

That would diminish a lot of fear; won't engender much courage, but sure as
hell satisfies worrying about the unknown...I mean why bother...but then if there is
no G-d you don't need to bother, then again maybe you think you do need to bother
with it just 'cause.................................................................................
you feel like it...why?...90 per-center lookin' outfits.

It's your brain that makes you happy, not your feelings; feelings are only signals.
It's the Governance of our minds that vex us to be curious, not our egos.......
how nice it would be to play with It sans arrogance.

oh.. .Dunphy...got yourself a genious there huh?... what an imagination.... like
that's the first time that's ever been mentioned. Totally rad dude.... 🙄
There's more thoughtful compassion in a Buddha statue's little finger.
Whatever happened to Providence?

Phucking quit equivocating and stand your ground . You gonna let little
old arrogant atheists turn your head? Humanism is relativism...justification
and rationalization to suite one's ends as he / she wishes; not as he/ she must act.
The only way atheists see G-d is as death.

Go ahead...death is a lie...energy isn't lost. It's absorbed. RE: Christ, Buddha;
Hindu and three other classic religions as well as Plato's logical conclusion that there
is a G-d. Islam's self-purporting violence negates itself - the Six real realigions convince
their arguments w/ peaceful argument, but for the misguided zealots that screw the
message up. Welcome to the other side of the coin. Being humble does not negate
backbone...

"genious"?! Really?
Isn't that how Travis spelled it in his thread about Mensa?

It's real pleasant that you let us know how intelligent you are. That's how
idiots spell the word, isn't it? Genius.

You and Dunphy have a lot in common
Mr. Perfection...Mensa's ass.

...as if G-d comes from somewhere. Really....

It's hard to tell with all your stream-of-stupidity type babbling, but I think you just called Travis an idiot, which is really sort of uncalled for. What did he ever do to you?!
