  1. Religion lends itself to scientific scrutiny, such as claims about the age of the earth, where lightening comes from, and whether or not Sam Cook understood the beginnings of love: Cupid, draw back your bow And let your arrow go Straight to my lover's heart for me Perception, beliefs, and human behavior are also subject to scientific scrutiny. The supernatural does not lend itself to scientific scrutiny though.
  2. Well said. But like all your other posts it is completely devoid of relevance to the topic at hand or even a relevant response to the post you are commenting on.
  3. What has that got to do with evidence for gods? Waxing poetic is fine on a poetry site but will not get you far on a science site.
  4. You are on a science site. I am talking about scientific evidence, not the evidence of god you find through the love in a mother's eyes, or in the flight of a butterfly on a summer's evening.
  5. You seem to be missing the distinction that Bufofrog made. This thread is titled "What is the Purpose of Life?", not "What is the purpose of YOUR life?" You can find a purpose for yourself, you can make something that has a specific purpose, and you can even give purpose to a rock by using it as a paperweight. But to suggest Life (capital 'L') has a purpose, implies that some forethought went into the creation of life in the universe, which presupposes a god of some sort.

  6. I hate to see someone else blamed for my neg rep. Typically I find it is best to call someone out for trolling AFTER they've trolled, rather than assume they are a troll in disguise. Not everyone has yet come to the firm conclusion that the vaccine for everyone is a no-brainer like most people on this site have. It might be best to let them finish their journey of education rather than insult them because they haven't already arrived. I've recently found myself discussing the vaccine with people in their 20's and 30's who are hesitating because they don't know if the vaccine is
  7. He's 13 and writing his first post.
  8. I think his point was that it might make it somewhat less pertinent.
  9. I'm in no position to evaluate the veracity of this article but it seems to indicate that the MMR vaccine may be responsible for lessening the impact of COVID-19 on people. In part, the more recent the MMR vaccination, the less likely you are to have a severe reaction to the disease. Hence, younger people are impacted by COVID-19 less than older people. https://mbio.asm.org/content/11/6/e02628-20
  10. What electrons? Free electrons in the air between the source and the target?
  11. Today I learned that this year's version of the Brood X cicadas are giving it all they've got! https://www.npr.org/2021/05/18/997998920/the-fungus-thats-making-cicadas-sex-crazy
  12. Can you please provide your evidence for this assertion?
  13. Don't you have anything better to do with your time?
