Yabut, it's in crayon.

Nooooooooo! I'm expecting a package to arrive on Friday. Weeping

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

No worries. They don't even know if they're modeling the right universe. Fucking math. Big Grin

Because if they didn't have a god they wouldn't be theists.

RE: Why do theists need God?
I'd say people always want to belong somewhere, they want to feel safe, that there's someone to stand up for them when they are down. Who could be better than an all powerful, awesome, it-will-all- be-ok-at-the-end parents figure. They even call him "father".
And have you noticed how people usually turn to god, when they are in a difficult situation...
But yes, life sucks sometimes, it's shit and horrible sometimes, but get the fuk up and get going. No one's gonna pick you up and carry you there. but then again, we all cope with hard things differently, and some of those people really need something to believe in, even if it's untrue, to get by.

Somehow, it was comforting to believe they 'lived on'. But it's all an illusion.

I'm with you, I miss my grandma terriblySad
