It's not wrong. Not all coins are imbalanced, and the imbalance is so minor as to have a totally negligible impact on the outcome unless you're rolling thousands of times in a row.. and it depends on how the "toss" is done (spinning versus flipping, etc.).

That's why I compared it to the matter/antimatter balance. 99.9999999999999999...% of the time, they annihilate one another, but that tiniest of imbalances appears to have been enough to make us have a universe scattered throughout with matter.

Which is what he alluded to so I was wrong just not about the fact they are imbalanced. Then I was petulant and ungracious so quite understandably I'm now on ignore, I don't blame him but it does mean I can't apologise unfortunately.

I admire someone who can admit they are wrong, and who owns and apologizes for behavior Smile

I'll pass on your message to him.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

On a more serious note, if you do decide to move away from religion, you should know that there are sources of help for you that will not try to push "woo-woo" mysticism or religion as a means of solving your psychological troubles or worries.

Oh, I cannot PM him. So either he has them turned off, or I'm on ignore too.

Maybe someone else could try?

That's kind of you to say so, unfortunately one of my biggest personal faults is a hair-trigger temper it never lasts long but it does mean I frequently say shit without thinking which is frequently unreasonable. I'm a lot better than when I was younger but it still slips out at times. Owning my mistakes and rudeness and apologising is the next best thing todo for a behaviour I cannot seem to fully control. Its a pity because I'm generally quite a gentle person otherwise.

I can't relate to this in any way.

Because I want to know why atheists are atheists and if I should be one

You're thinking about becoming an atheist? Usually becoming an atheist is the result of critical thinking. It's not like wanting to become a hipster. And you are woefully lacking in critical thinking skills.

Is it possible to know many personal things about a person through their credit card?

Almost anything can be found about you with a small amount of info.

Wouldn't you want to meet the one that created you? He's your Father.
