Creative destruction? I think your economy's problem is literal destruction, KF. And isn't Schumpeter an evil socialist?

This morning my wife found a YouTube video of a parrot reading UD.

There's a lizard in South East Asia that has a call that sounds VERY much like, "Fuck you!" †I ran into one once in Thailand when I walked past a bush one night and it cursed at me. †Very clear and understandable, too. †I was glad I was sober and had a witness with me.

But I wish I had saved a little filler piece I found in "Stars and Stripes" circa sometime in 1970. †It told how an "Infamous Vietnamese Insulting Lizard" had taken up residence in the walls of a church!

Man, I wish I'd been there. †

Preacher (lifting up arms): "Oh Lord, give us a sign!"

I wonder if KF is in the market for a pet lizard?

bY the way this YEC speculates that Thor, the Germanic god, is actually a memory of a real man who was the first leader of the Germans according to genesis.
i think Gomer is the first german and torgamah , his son, was a leader of a division in the german peoples and lived long and when died they turned his memory into a God. it lasted easily 2500 years.

I shudder at the thought of an irrational speculating mind like that in a position of power, Lysenko comes to mind.

He must have read Thor Heyerdahl's speculation about Odin as a real person. But this Thor had some research to back it up.

As for Thor, he looks more like the thunder god Zevs.

According to the source material I've read, Odin was the leader. Thor was just a big guy with a boomerang for a hammer.

Strict Materialism as Pornography Addiction

As pointed out in the Dawkins post, Iím currently working on a thesis that proposes atheism is one of a class of neurodegenerative pathologies, hall-marked by substantial downregulation and possible total ischemia of dopaminergic receptors and opiate receptors.

Initial mechanism proposals and meta-analyses are promising. Trying to find a proper control is the elusive variable. My instinct tells me this will sweep discussions like Coyneís completely aside in the future.

I can think of at least one control.

JWTruthInLove, a Jehovah's Witness, offers his take on God:
Quote
@Coyne:
All the questions are pretty easy to answer.
Quote
Why would the Abrahamic God, all-loving and all-powerful, allow natural evils to torment and kill people?

Thereís no evidence that god is all-loving or all-powerful. And he probably likes to torture and kill things. Maybe thatís one of the reasons he designed us.
Quote
Why canít he keep kids from getting cancer?

Why should he??
Quote
How did the Holocaust fit into Godís scheme?

Perfectly.
Quote
Why, if God wants us to know and accept him so much, does he hide himself from humanity?

He only hides from atheists. The other billions of religionists are too blind to see the truth of god.
Quote
Why would an omnibenevolent God consign sinners to an eternity of horrible torment for crimes that donít warrant that?

Hell is a trinitarian invention. Thereís no evidence, that god designed any hell.
Quote
Why is God in the Old Testament such a jerk, toying with people for his amusement, ordering genocides in which women and children are killed en masse, and allowing she-bears to kill a pack of kids just for making fun of a prophetís baldness?

I donít know. Maybe he was born a jerk.
