Many years ago, i learned somwhere that if someome wanted to replicate the brain, machine wise, the computer would be the size of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, and cost a miilion dollars a day in electricity to run it.

Science.....what a concept.

    Pac, don't you know that God works in mysterious ways? Don't you wish people would happily fall for BS like that when you don't have a good answer for other things?

      I didn't want to turn this topic into a religous debate.

      I'll answer you. The first thing I'll do if he's up there is to ask if one question. I'll apologize after he provides an answer. I'll ask him which God is he. That'll be my first question.

       Is he the god of christians? Is he the god of the jews? Is the god of the buddahs? Is he the god of the muslims? ...Thor? Posieden?

      If he can answer to me which one of those I should've known to pick, then I'll ask him why did he not show his face for such a very long time, and whether he did that on purpose or is that the way he wanted it to look?

      If he can answer all those questions, then he's got my vote, and I will bow to him. But that'll never happen, because all those questions I proposed can't possibly be answered. He would have to change the laws of logic and common sense to answer convincingly.

      No god would create 37 different religions and let the world sort it all out, each claiming they have the secret. Give me a break already.

      No god would allow 50 million people to die during a war like WWII, and allow one third of the population of the earth to be wiped out because of some rats that created the bubonic plague in the 1600s.

      No god would allow the rest of humanity suffer because one man and a woman messed up in a so called garden of eden. It's all fairytales my friend.

      I can say this though. If I ever get a chance to meet him, if he indeed exists, I'll be waiting behind a very very long line of people who used their brains to sort out life's mysteries by what they've been given to them, not because someone told them so. They'll have many questions that god could have had answers to and made them public a long time ago. But he didn't. He left his kids in the dark wondering who they should believe in. If that's not a red flag to you, then maybe you should answer some of those questions I posed. Maybe if you understand the questions better, a red flag might pop into your head, among many other red flags. Miracles can happen you know.....

      Oh ....BTW, why do men have nipples? Does god make mistakes? Oh yes he does....Hmmm...I forgot about Noah, where he says that he'll never ever do this again, as if having human qualities concerning emotions....It's laughable. An omnipotent being not sure if he did the right thing, but after he does it, he gets a guilty complex...ROFL

        So you are saying you are going up there?  And you are going to start interrogating God before you apologise?  I think your level of humbleness approaches that of someone who has a God complex.  And as far as starting a religious debate, the techniques you use to disqualify people as being as "BRILLIANT" as yourself are pathetic, unrelated, and off topic.

        Your rant on questioning God (someone who doesn't exist) is just that , another rant leaving out the inifinite good that comes from God.  You see, one of the life's challenges is taking the good along with the bad.

            How do I know my clients live there? I know because these people are regular customers. I should have clarified earlier, that I was complaining about the people I used to randomly pick up at the airport a year or so ago. People who I didn't know, using our service for the first time. Since then, I have been working in a company who has regularrs who've been with my boss for up to 10 years now. I know they aren't the maids because these are people whom I've had many conversations, and they know me as pacman.

            Who is assuming what? Maybe you?

            You ask what percentage should be given? Well it seems to me that you have no idea about the general rules of thumb for tipping, and ASSume you know better, when in fact you don't even know the fundamentals.

            But if you must know, it's customary to give 15-20%. And I always give great service. Which you also ASSumed, once agin.

            The rugalars know the deal, it's people from Germany, Iowa, Canada, and others who have to be shown what the customs are. The germans think that the tip is included with the fare because that's how they do it over there. And the rest just don't have a clue, just like you.

            But if you must know, it's customary to give 15-20%. And I always give great service. Which you also ASSumed, once agin.

            I agree.   Less than 20% is an insult.

              So you are saying you are going up there? 

              Folks read this. Here is an exampe of a deranged mind. A few posts ago he accuses me of eluding his question, and then when I respond, he replies by saying that I think I'm really going to meet him. He proposed a hypothetical question and I answered. I never said that I would definitely meet him. DUH!

              Jarasan, nevermind the facts, just stay brain washed if it makes you content. Afterall, you must be used to not using your brain, since you believe everything people tell you. You and your faster than light Tachyons, or whatever BS.

              Santa personally told me your wrong. He said that if you don't belive in him, he'll send you to the north pole....naked. So you better repent.

              Buy a clue, they're cheap at walmart. Oh BTW...the earth is flat, and the earth is the center of the universe too I guess.

              And the moon, it hangeth upon nothing.

                Pac Your memory banks are what I call volatile, unstable and definiteley have  corruption, they may need replacement,  show me (us) where I said that. You must be thinking of some other person who believes in God.  I have never made that statement. 

                I have discussed religion with you before, but you won't answer and ignore the question I have asked you several times, because the answer is inconvienient to your arguments.

                I will ask it again:  When you die, will you find out whether or not there is a God?

                And if there is a God, will you apologise?

                It's funny how the bible thumpers put science down, and then use science to prove their theory. It just boggles my mind.

                When I ask a christians if they believe the universe is only 6,000 years old, most say yes. However, I find the christians who don't believe it more interesting. They are at a cross road. How? I'll tell ya.

                1. If they do belive it's true, then they have made their mind up through trust.

                2. If they don't, then they have some explaining to do. How can I believe the universe is billions of years old and believe in the bible at the same time?.

                Well....those galaxies that you see, well....God changed the laws of physics concerning the speed of light when he created the universe. And that's why we can see the light of galaxies billions of light years away....SEE? That's why ! Another problem solved. I'll just twist the laws of physics to prove my point. I'll do anything to overcome common sense. I'm desparate.

                  Pac, don't you know that God works in mysterious ways? Don't you wish people would happily fall for BS like that when you don't have a good answer for other things?

                  You're right. He'd be the best mystery writer of all. You have to read the end to find out if it was the butler or not. The only difference between a good mystery novel, and christianity is that with christianity it's too late when you find out at the end. After I read a good book, i still wake up the next day.

                  Don't you wish people would happily fall for BS like that when you don't have a good answer for other things

                  You make an excellent point. I wish that they were just as confident about how to cure the common cold....lol

                  They can't cure the most basic cold, but they know the secrets of the universe. They not only know the name of this entity, but know what his plans are with what price and what everyone needs to do to pass this test. They know the rules and regulations, and curse everyone else who has a different belief system. This is the true way, and all else are just mislead by satan and need to repent. Blah Blah Blah...

                  I guess there's never a dull moment with god. He likes to live on the edge, and expects everyone else to do the same. I don't ever remember to agreeing to these terms. Do You?

                      You are incapable of a simple yes or no. You are arguing with yourself.  The reason you go on and on and on is clear, you are not convinced completely that there is no God.  There is doubt somewhere in that vast brain of yours (or your heart)  that you may be wrong. If you have "no doubt" you won't be meeting your maker, you would simply say:

                      "NO!,  I am not apologising to a non-existent being".

                      But you keep trying to convince yourself, no way, He ain't there, He hasn't shown Himself to me the way I wan't Him to.  The answer you gave is a contingency plan, another argument with yourself.

                      Trust, is the wrong word, the word is faith.

                      You don't have to twist the laws of physics, physicists do that every day, leave it to the professionals.

                      P.S. You need to re-read psycomos post, the fine print, and I don't thump bibles.

                        Of course we don't have the answers, but we don't make them up.

                        There will always be doubt. That's the beauty of science. It's an ever morphing learning process. Doubting in this case is a healthy one. It's not soley of the doubt in my brain, but more of a generic common sense that tells me something just ain't kosher. Religion is like a fixed rate. 4.7% flat rate.

                        I like the adjustable rates. I measure the market depending on how many idiots i meet that day and bet accordingly. I have a knack for picking the winners....lol

                          So if your "no God" postulate is wrong,  it's OK, it was just an experiment,  no biggie,  God forgives, you're covered, thank God!  I am a good person, just very curious about the speed of light thing......................and......and.......

                            So if your "no God" postulate is wrong,  it's OK, it was just an experiment,  no biggie,  God forgives, you're covered, thank God!  I am a good person, just very curious about the speed of light thing......................and......and.......

                            It ain't the lottery.  You have only one shot at this one Pac! There is no day no night draw tommorrow.

                            Nobody has the answers, of course, but there is the inevitable end, you'll get your answer there,  100% guaranteed, no doubt, no more unanswered questions, that is my point, one shot, heads or tails, one time. 

                            You raise an excellent point. I learned this while i was working at the bookstore in Baruch college. I obviously fancied the theology 101 section...lol

                            I have to agree with jarasan on this point. There is an old axiom that states how to cover your butt at the end. Here goes....very simple....

                            1. If you believe and you're right, then you have succeeed in achieving the right goal.

                            2. If you don't believe, there is a possibility that you could be wrong.

                            So the best choice would be number 1. But that's misleading. Again...lol

                            Most people choose number one because it's an easy way out. It's misleading. It's a cop out.

                              I believe it was St. Vincent.

                              Of course, for "YOU", choice #1 is a cop out.  So, the idiots in Pacs world (everybody) that believe there is a God are misled, are cop outs, and take the easy way out. Your superlative logic and reasoning is undeniably genius.

                              As you said earlier you have a hunch that there is a problem with the "God" thing,  good for you, and thanks for trying to convince the faithful to reject their God. 

                              Well, believe it or not, there are billions of people that have the hunch that there is a God, a higher power,  and CHOOSE to believe (faith), and to live their lives as they feel they should, in His hands.
