And people really believes this tripe? I knew that some conspiracy theories were way out there but this one takes the cake.

It's no more stupid than believing 5G causes Covid 19.  But then the idiots will believe almost anything it seems...

Drop bears?

Yeah, but Drop Bears are REAL!!! ::)

Can confirm, Bluenose showed me a picture of one!

Icarus

God plays around with his toys about this time of year.  An annual phenomena is called the Christmas Star.  It is an unusually bright object in the sky. Christians see it as a sign of............whatever they want it to be.

It is not a star at all. It is the conjunction of two planets, Saturn and Jupiter.   This year, on or about December 21 the "star" will be as near a perfect conjunction as has happened in 800 years.  One planet will hide neatly behind the other and together they will produce a brilliant image in the southern sky.  ( southern sky....depending where you are on our pale blue marble)

Astrology types might become flummoxed

Thread split here. For commentary speculating on atheism as an unrecognised disability and responses thereto see the Anteroom board. Or not.  :lol:

Almost all of us feel material dualism or a body/soul reality is what we are living.

We have an ideal or fittest material human in mind,  and it would seem to follow that we would also have an ideal or fittest soul theory n mind.

Do you think in body/soul terms?

Icarus

I am not at all conscious of any sort of body/soul relationship. I submit that there are far more of us than religious people are capable of recognizing.  The body/soul belief is probably a source of comfort to adherents of religious faiths.

That subject could easily become the source of a lengthy philosophic exchange.

Here is a semi-interesting read about people who are pretty sure of the body soul thing.  If nothing else, their village is a quaint and neatly kept place to practice the medium craft.   (Vid dredged from my continuously expanding E mail in box.)

It may depend upon one's perspective of reality, or who's reality one is drawn to or agrees with. This should be taken to the anteroom, I think. For me the anteroom show up only if I'm logged in.

Ditto on the greetings buddy.

I am going by what I see around me as well as the stats.

I see religions using our ways of thinking against us. Especially when the religious get to young minds and corrupt them with supernatural beliefs.
