In Girly's experience, it's the only thing of practical relevance. Tongue

Until or unless there is any evidence for "transcendence" it has as much relevance as the hypothetical 1957 Chevy orbiting Pluto. I remain open to that too. Weeping
Everyone in human history, (so far) that ever believed in anything trancendent, is dead and moldering in their graves. Is there any reason to excpect that to change ?
No.

No reason to expect it, nor reason to categorically deny potentialities extant but beyond our present cognitive abilities for some possible yet ineffable reason.
57 Cheves make for a strange example......Cool


Pretty sure they're both woo.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That's probably a safe bet. The escape velocity of earth is about 11km/s. Not sure how the 57 Chevy could pull that off Tongue
Perhaps a slingshot.. Eh.. No..

By the way, what is it about the 1957 Chevy? It's my Dad's favourite. I don't see what's so special about it.
