    the particles known as muons

    Life and existence will be explained---and not by any church or spiritual dogma.

    Bad news believers. :lol:

    I think Joe is seeing the toe of an Angel wearing a Red Shod Muon, not god. :eek:

    the presumption that science and spirituality are mutually exclusive is very limiting, imo.

    I agree. I think the descriptions given in A Brief History of Time can easily be reconciled with scripture if one doesn't believe that the earth is 6,000 years old.

    nothing really wrong with science and spirituality per se...but imnsho it becomes a problem when that good old time religion enters the picture. :lol:


    there is religion and then there is religion.

    well, we agree there. there isn't much spirituality in many religions after the people running them get finished.

    yeah, there's a maker who is worried about how human beings behave. It's a man and he's waiting to punish bad little boys and girls for acting like---uhm---human beings.

    ---

    seriously, there have been religious scientists who did not allow their faith to interfere with scientific observations, and then there were those who held mankind back. there are scientists who have been non believers and IO have yet to hear a case of one who held back science because it challenged his/her beliefs.

    A designer, a creator, a mortal sin maker...

    ...not very probable.

    I have become a non believer who believes (LOL) in maybe inventing my own symbols and myths to feed my human condition. The condition is fatal, but I am at peace with IT. :eusa_whistle:

    note: too much Joseph Campbell

    i think a designer and a creator is as probable as anything else- a mortal sin maker? not so much

    I think both are possible, but not probable...and that is what separates us.
