What you believe is of consequence only to your therapist. What you can demonstrate might be of interest to others.

Then you should have no trouble presenting the evidence and designing methods to test your conjecture to see if it is correct.

No, just going to ignore it as unsubstantiated bloviating from a credulous source until evidence to the contrary is presented.

If you mean religious-style faith, that is not a path to knowledge since anything at all can be believed using faith. If you mean trust, that has to be earned.

for those things to be true. YOU do not have to believe something for it to be true!!!
I say, it's about time you grew up to this fact!!

You misunderstand. You do not have to convince anybody of anything for it to be true. Things can be true that nobody believes and things can be false no matter how many believe. Reality is not contingent on belief.

Belief, however, is contingent on evidence (at least for me). What you have to do is convince people for them to have a reason to believe it. Saying "I do not believe X" is not at all the same as "I believe not-X".

I suspect you do not understand that atheism is the result of skepticism and that the two are not the same thing.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Just from reading a few of your posts I think you’re here to TEST THE CAPS button. Consider

Does your meditation involve the use of hallucinogens? Wink

Big Grin

I often have to weigh the evidence against logic and reason. My desire to investigate into holy water came from a belief that holy water was water that was blessed by the Pope. Since I learned that the Pope was found guilty, in Brussels, of child trafficking, rape and torture I suddenly thought about holy water and decided to research into it. How could water be "holy" if it is blessed by a man found guilty of such crimes!!!

POPE FOUND GUILTY:

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=ch...rafficking

IT'S CREEPY, but it seems Catholics around the world are under some sort of ninth circle demonic spell. That's why they completely ignore this information. It would explain why so many Catholic priests have been found guilty of pedophilia. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Ha! So much for your critical thinking and mistrust of the press.

Man IS an ape....

MY RESPONSE:

Do you blindly believe man is an ape? Do you have repeatable, observable scientific experiments demonstrating that man is an ape? He sure looks much different than an ape and acts much different.

Ever hear of genetics?

I accept that the current scientific understanding is correct.

In other words, 'YOU BLINDLY BELIEVE IT'

No No, what you have are 'Assertions'.

You are missing the point I am makjng about your way of thinking being akin to 'Solipsism'.

You attest to what you know with out providing anything of veracity about such.

You're also not doing a bang up job of replying to things people are responding to yourself with.

I KNOW FOR A FACT I enjoy life most when I feel strong, healthy and laugh at the absurdities of life. All YOUR doubt will not change this fact for me.

Who gives a shit? Nobody cares. You're not here to listen, converse or learn. You just want to spew. Go to Facebook. Plenty of your kind there.

Man looks and acts quite different from an ape.

However, if your science heroes say man is an ape you just blindly believe it, right?

"your science"? Do you have your own science now? Laugh out load

Thumbsup

Not a bad reply to myself Jsamuel (Who might be made of wood and has a tail). Bravo.

I am still confused though. Consider

As stated before... you accept viroligy on the one hand..... but disregard evolution on the other?

I am confused as to this 'Double standard' in regards to science.

Consider

You and your friggin fancy words. Okay, I'll play along, but only if you spell them correctly, try again.

Fancy words?! What a dipshit.
