GOD vs NO GOD - And the Winner Is? If you don't believe in God, you need to watch this! If you do believe in God, you need to watch this! Possibilianism by Dr. David Eagleman - Talk given at ...

I think Dr. Eagleman, a neuroscientist has given this topic some serious thought. He comes to "conclusions" I can live with, which is rather rare for me on this particular topic. Great speaker, easy listening as podcast. I find nothing I can argue with, and looking for such is my usual modus operandi.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

I've watched this three times before you posted it. Everyone should think about what he has to say. Arrogance is the product of little knowing how little we know.

From my Rocking Down angels from above awakening back in 1994, at same time my social conscience was cut open by a beautiful barmaid who left me stranded as driftwood on the shore, have come to figure life always existed and something went wrong. Quite a few Rock lyrics have led me to think that since.

Here are a few lines from Arlo Guthrie's Stairs song that keeps me think that.

"Back before the world began, back before that too.

You took me in your confidence told me I was you.

It just seems kind of funny now as I walk along the shore

I can't help but laugh.

If I thought that I knew that the way to get across to you was this high and winding stairs, I'd be there."

I love his bring your own god church he got his name by cleaning trash out of before celebrating Thanks Giving Dinners that couldn't be beat. Think that's a great idea for more churches to clean out the legalistic trash and just feed the poor, heal the sick and set prisoners free...working towards a brotherhood of mankind learning to share this melting pot we have been thrown down too and are riding back home on.

Think this Native Quote is great direction to head our thinking towards of on thoughts of what is up above.

Daniel, I enjoyed the talk by David Eagleman a lot. Thanks.

I now declare that I am not an agnostic. I proudly declare I am now a possibilian! Don't try to argue with me.

The ultra deep field experiment looked at just one small point in the night sky. I cheated and did an internet search to find out that of course other points in the night sky revealed the same thing -- many far distant galaxies from shortly after the Big Bang. I found out also they have done deep field searches in the infrared; lots more stuff has been discovered. It is impossible to imagine all the possibilities imagined by probabillian possibilians!

Note: my brother when he was alive, used to say -- when the internet was young -- that the internet allowed even least bright and most uninformed to cheat; the internet was like a cheatsheet. Even the stupidest and least informed grade school dropout could cheat and search the internet on any topic and then go out and talk about something that was impressive to make it look like he was smart and had studied hard in school. Anyway, I cheated when I looked up the ultra- deep field experiment. But that's ok, for a long time now everybody has known that its not cheating if everybody does it. :)

That picture was my screen saver for many years--the original picture.

If I heard right, astrophysicists are saying there are likely trillions of galaxies, with 400 billion stars in one like ours, I think a typical one.

Each star is likely to have a planetary system.

A crying shame we can't do a little better with our home planet, to say it mildly. Corrections welcome on the numbers...

Which picture?

Trillions of galaxies? I will up the bet to quadrillion galaxies. Do you think the astrophysicists will fold or will they up it to septillion galaxies? If they up it to septillion or even octillion galaxies, I will go all in with google galaxies. I would up it to infinite galaxies, but I don't have that many.

What is your bet?

:)

Kurt Vonnegut was right, "If god were a man today he would be an atheist."

You think he would be an atheist? I don't know. I think maybe he would be an agnostic. :)

You may be familiar with this song. I am not religious and never have been. But, I like this song. "What if god was one of us."

So one of these nights and about twelve o'clock
This old world's going to reel and rock
Saints will tremble and cry for pain
For the Lord's gonna come in his heavenly airplane

If God had a name, what would it be?
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with Him in all His glory?
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us?
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home?

If God had a face, what would it look like?
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like Heaven and in Jesus and the saints
And all the prophets? And...

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home?

Tryin' to make His way home
Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope, maybe, in Rome

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home?

Just tryin' to make His way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to Heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make His way home
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope, maybe, in Rome

I was just making a joke about Kurt. My first comment of the Natives calling all the Great Spirits up above our father explains where I come from.

I love "One of Us" song very much.

This Rocking Down angels blog will end up true. If it can't ever help build a brotherhood of mankind learning to share this melting pot,,,it means nothing to me but being a pain in the butt, or rather constant head aches. What I also thought the term Michael meant was "that is like him" as a statement not a question. Hope you give it a little of a chance. It ties together if can look complicated. Being either 9th or 11th in the family and other 911 coincidences back in late 90s 911 as an exclamation point!!!

Here is my pick for Ancient of Days who takes his seat in that world court of Daniel 7 and gives the kingdoms to the Rock and Rollers of sixties-70s whose power is just about shattered in Daniel 12:7. Them with insight in the lost jewel of Daniel 12:3 who will shine brightly like the stars forever and ever when given control of the TV-the powers of heaven to be shaken in Matthew 24. Been lettering in his spirit of littering trash out of a church for Thanks Giving Dinners that couldn't be beat.
