Every now and then I can belch out a bumper sticker. Confused

How do you manage to write with such an effeminate lisp?

Ah, reduced you to insults. Excellent. I win, you lose.

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

I hadda stop reading for a minute I got such a good laugh. Could totally imagine you with a straight face, moderately interested tone, and a little smirk at the end. Best damn part of the thread! Bowing

I don't know why these things can't be duplicated. I have never been able to control when I will have a precognitive dream. I don't like them at all, so I don't try to have them.

But here's the thing. I have reported the dreams accurately to you. Yes, I could be lying to you. But they might be lying to us about global warming, or landing on Mars, or weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
I don't think that you're lying, I think that your reports are unreliable.

I might give it a second thought if it occured more than five out of about 10.000 times. The statistical significance of your precognition dreams is low enough to call it a mere coincidence. That and you probably don't remember all the times when you had precognition dreams and the predictions didn't came true due to your (possible) cognitive bias.

RE: God Exists: An Open Debate
There's also the fact that most "precognitive" dreams are really just deja vu, which is really just a glitch in your brain's memory system.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

If you don't know if there is such an omnipotent being or not and don't take a side, you're probably an Agnostic.

If you believe that there is such an omnipotent being that created the universe, but don't think he interferes in human affairs, you're a Deist.

If you believe that there is a god that created the universe, and that he has a plan for the human race, and rules, then you are a Theist.

If you believe in two or more "gods" or "beings" of great, but not necessarily omnipotent power that may or may not have created the universe, then you are a Polytheist.

If you believe that all human beings and (optionally) animals and (optionally) matter is part of one giant universal consciousness, then you are a Pantheist.



*(optionally an "Agnostic Atheist" if you're a pedant)

I'm an acosmic monist, actually.

Don't you think you should subsidise T.T.A. for helping you with ideas for your ghost stories, while at times insulting its members in the process?

You can call yourself that, but as long as you call atheism a religion, I'm going to call you a pantheist, mkay?
