Well, I can certainly say that's not what "entropy" means...

It makes as much sense as the "quantum consciousness of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi". Buzzwords, man, buzzwords!

This notion is patently more upsetting and divisive than anything, including assertions for a god.

At best, appeal to consequences (lol at "more upsetting" counting for anything). At worst it's just incoherent.

I was pretty calm and measured, actually. Some others weren't, but that only makes me wonder why you said this in a reply to me as opposed to, you know, them. Asking you to define your terms is by no stretch of the imagination "vitriolic".

Well, that dumbfuck trainwreck fizzled out about as incompetently as we all could have predicted.

Hence why it slid into derision and vitriol so quickly. I knew this guy was full of shit after I read the first few paragraphs of the article he posted. I knew we weren't going to get anything other than mindless drivel and Woo when we asked for evidence.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

You know, I've had dreams where I can levitate. It's really cool. But I can never seem to get that shit to work in real life.

Never heard that phrase before.

I suppose if you fall in with the right crowd, and you try hard enough, you can believe just about anything.

I'm a weak atheist. I would totally fake being religious if I had something to gain from it.

RE: So, tell me, is this place mainly strong atheism?
I can levitate. Laugh out load

I've got to stop laughing or there's gonna be a seizure. I didn't think this guy was that bad, but he should have took his own advice. He should have went slowly. If he couldn't stand the ridicule he should've backed the fuck away to woo another day. Now he's shot his load and nobody is satisfied. Undecided

I'm a lapsed atheist.

That's pretty much like a regular atheist - just without any serious commitment or dogma.....

I'm not elitist or anything -- just too lazy to really give a fuck...

Your hidden premise here is that all motion* constitutes or requires intelligence. You're going to have to do some work to justify that one.
(notwithstanding that you've either just declared non-intelligent life to not be alive, or else you've declared yeast to be intelligent; either would be problematic)

*motion is not a coherently defined physical term. Perhaps you mean interaction, which is.

It doesn't speak to organic life as exclusive. Yes, all motion is subject to intelligent principles that regulate and define it, thus, all that moves, is intelligent. All that exists, moves. All that exists is intelligent.

Evidence please.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
