• Are people who deny climate change brainwashed or retarded?

    You're absolutely retarded, or brainwashed as well, which is usually the case. You're giving trillions to the Saudis for oil, when you could use electric cars and get power from hydro, wind and solar technology. You're giving money to the people who funded ISIS and 9/11, who already own over ten percent of the USA and national debt,... show more

You're giving money to the people who funded ISIS and 9/11, who already own over ten percent of the USA and national debt, it's causing deaths now, and may destroy the world with pollution and use up all oil that will ever exist on earth, for no reason. And, the same people who sell the oil could sell the renewable technology. It's a ridiculous argument based on nothing more than short term losses, for long term gains, if they do switch over, which they will need to do anyway, as oil is running out.

  • Can you explain why you believe there's no center of the universe?

    Everything is travelling away from everything else, at basically the same speed, the further you are away from something, the faster it is travelling away, going up to faster than the speed of light, depending. However, we are travelling through space at great speed, away from the point at which the big bang happened. Everything is travelling away... show more
    Everything is travelling away from everything else, at basically the same speed, the further you are away from something, the faster it is travelling away, going up to faster than the speed of light, depending. However, we are travelling through space at great speed, away from the point at which the big bang happened. Everything is travelling away from that central point. When it was discovered that the universe wasn't the center of the universe, they almost killed Galileo. They sent death threats to Einstein, and his cycling universe paper was suppressed in English until five years ago. Now, the theory that the universe was expanding from a central point was taken as proof of the literal truth of Genesis, by scientists. Humans generally just repeat and copy everything they see. So, when you say there's no center of the universe, can you explain why, with common sense, or are you just repeating what you were told? Is it that space doesn't exist without the big bang, and so we are still inside it? Because to me, everything travelling away from a central point, means there is a center. This is just one problem I have with your logic. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20...

  • Who here believes the USA is a democracy?

    I heard something about the process required to run for president, the cost of it, and the people who decide who even gets a chance to do it, in any way. I actually been looking into it for a long time now, and there seems to be a pattern, the rich getting richer and more powerful, in a smaller bunch of more powerful people, who form secret societies that have existed for hundreds of years, which basically don't allow anyone else to get power. This is most similar to feudalism, and if you were going to start a democracy, it would have to start by getting rid of the old bunch of people and watching them closely, with a new intelligence agency, totally separate from the old one, wouldn't you? The corruption is endemic, and it's so bad, you can't fix it, without a total revolution.

They generally think, we fought for our right to have what we have, when for the vast majority of them, they don't have what they fought for, the rich elite one percent do, and they don't even really have a concept of how much richer they really are. One guy has a hundred billion to himself. That's like a thousandth of all the money in the world, and there's like ten million times more people in the world who are practically starving if not literally dying of hunger.

I just comment in someone else's answer, or with a longer answer, I make a new question, because you know, if I'm going to put my fingers on the keyboard and leak out my genius online, I expect it to make it online. I never block anyone, I mean I would if they constantly messaged me ridiculous nonsense in personal messages, but you know, anybody who ever messaged me usually gave up after about two or three messages about some ridiculous nonsense, I sometimes replied, but it's not that sort of site where you're meant to do that. If you ask a question, the reasonable thing to do is let everyone answer, so you get a realistic cross section of what people in the real world think. I mean, when I ask questions, I want a small percentage of fundamentalist religious answers, even if I don't agree with them, it's so you get variety.

As for the general religious thing, religion sucks, and if wasn't for religion, it would be a war for thousands of years between slightly different looking middle eastern tribes. Different shades of brown. The whole problem is religion, race is next I guess, but if it wasn't for religion, they'd all breed together, they'd all look similar, you couldn't tell them apart, and the war would end, so the solution to the war in the middle east is education, ending religion.

  • When we get reincarnated, what determines who or what we become?

    I believe the universe moves in an endless cycle, hot energy expands, cold energy contracts, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, what goes up, must come down, everything that can possibly happen has already, and will continue to, forever, due to causality.

    I believe the universe moves in an endless cycle, hot energy expands, cold energy contracts, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, what goes up, must come down, everything that can possibly happen has already, and will continue to, forever, due to causality. No beginning, no end. Same with life, by our perception, there is nothing else but life, but consciousness, because we cannot perceive anything without it. So, hence the eternal life. I fully believe this is scientifically valid, the big bounce theory, still the second most popular big bang theory, neatly explains the cause, rather than leaving a question of why which Christians often use as proof that God had to create the universe and set it in motion, but as for philosophically, I can't work out if you get born as only yourself when the exact same energy forms the exact same brain and body, causing the same consciousness, or if individuality is just an illusion, and we are actually all the same thing right now, the same creature(s), because our identity is eternal energy, the one thing. The only thing separating us is the illusion, and it prevents us from being able to even understand this potential possibility, but it has been debated for thousands of years.

Your reaction to that scientific law is but God is magical and he makes laws not follows them. He made everything. Yeah, from what? From nothing? Did he sit around forever on his golden throne and then one day, which doesn't exist there, just decided to make everything, out of nothing? The extent of the stupidity of these people who believe these things is like children or just about the level of chimpanzees. Sorry if that seems harsh, but if you can't make any distinction between fairy tales and reality, you really are a gullible child, with not much intelligence. This was an answer, but I was blocked, so now it's a question.

There's a bunch of evil people who run the world, not just the most powerful countries in the world, because they control the largest commodities in the world, and this is what the CIA and the Pentagon, the Federal Reserve, the elite rich and powerful are all about. They make wars happen, like by killing presidents, by killing thousands to then kill millions, so they can then make billions, and it's just sick. They obviously lie through their teeth about it, and most people don't see through the carefully fabricated lies that are fed to them through the media, owned by the same people. What I'm really trying to say is, if nothing is done to end the rule of these tyrants, then war and conflict, misery and death will continue to be the largest business on Earth, and will continue to happen, be made to happen, by these people, indefinitely into the future.

    In most countries, they try to stop society from falling apart by providing services like education, health care, welfare for disabled and unemployed people, and especially make sure that people have food and water and shelter. Who does that for the world? Most of the world is poor as dirt and run by tyrannical dictators or corrupt war lords, in fact that describes most of the supposed "civilized" countries as well. If you were going to make a world government to simply maintain order and make sure there was at least a minimum standard of living, like being able to eat food and drink water, not die of scurvy or easily treated diseases, then how would you do that? Obviously it would have to be democratic, or it would be fascist, so would you have world elections to elect a single world leader, or would you have it something like the UN? Obviously it's hard to get people from every country in the world to agree on everything, you can hardly even get people in the same country to agree on anything.

    It isn't a matter of belief exactly, evolution is proven. I've seen an underground cave with no connection to the outside world where bacteria live on sulfuric acid that would burn through skin. There's fairly good evidence that the proteins and amino acid chains that form them can be produced through things like volcanic currents, lightning strikes, and certain types of clay allow these molecules to line up in the right way, but what I think really does it is the size and eternal age of the universe. Eternal variation. I believe in an eternal, cycling universe, the big bounce theory, stars and black holes, hot energy expands, cold energy contracts, an exact opposite to every action, cause and effect, what goes up, must come down, then it goes back up again, through the violent smashing together of the black holes from the last universe. I actually believe that due to this endless variation, I have lived an almost infinite amount of lives, talked in an almost infinite amount of different languages, believed an almost infinite amount of crazy religions, had an almost infinite amount of girlfriends or wives and children, who themselves had an almost infinite amount of children, because that's what comes from the chaos of quantum mechanics. I think it's a thing, but Einstein called it God, and so do I sometimes, it's just that the word comes with a ton of ridiculous preconceptions, and it's best to avoid it, because while you could call the universe God, it's the universe.

Maybe half the people say they're Christian, I called myself Anglican when asked to list my religion until about twelve although I stopped believing in it about six. None of my family believe in it.

    I'm watching a program that says that Chernobyl caused less deaths than die in England falling out of bed every year, that there were less than a hundred deaths, proven to be caused by the accident, and in Hiroshima, there was a lot of deaths initially, and some mutations, but that it would take a much, much larger amount of nuclear fallout to wipe out all life on earth, or all human life on earth, in fact it's probably been exaggerated. There's a woman saying that low dose radiation happens all the time, for example from the sun, and that mutation is responsible for evolution, without which we probably wouldn't have survived. What I'm asking is, if there was a nuclear war, would people outside the immediate area really die, either quickly or slowly? It seems to me that while it's certainly deadly, that the effects of for example the agent orange attack in Vietnam was about a hundred times more deadly, with almost a million still dying slowly from poisoning today.
