Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

And that's all I have to say about that.

RE: Genetic testing
Vandalising your posts is the kind of thing that can get you in trouble around here, the-thinking-theist.

Edit: Added reference

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I did sign up for 23andme, and did send a saliva sample in. While they only look at a small portion of your DNA, the information is pretty fascinating. Found out I had a very high risk of having deep vein pulmonary thrombosis. Scary sounding affliction, but I was then able to look up some information on this---including the symptoms and prevention.

The ancestry stuff is interesting, just pretty basic. The 'cool' factor for me was the percent of Neanderthal DNA I had.

What is your fucking problem? Consider

This is a new thread, not a necro.


Sorry - What is a "Necro"? I understand in the concept of death - but I'm not understanding how its related to this thread?

2.8%...a little more than the average of around 2.7%


An estimated 2.8% of your DNA is from Neanderthals. (74th percentile)


Average European user 2.7%
