Re: European journey

OK...it's a bit premature, but this is where the photos are going to go. If one is interested I suggest checking back in about a week (and maybe weekly thereafter). I would think I will have uploaded everything I would want to upload within about 3 [more]

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

Is that agnostic enough for you?

It's not that. I was just trying to figure out where you were coming from. I know where Bryan's coming from, and that's fine. I thought I knew where you were coming from, but then began to question it [more]

Re: Atheists can't serve

I wonder if such a statute would exempt me from jury duty or paying local taxes.

These are the only states I can find anything on. I was hoping for one in Arizona so the next time I am called for jury duty I can exempt myself, but no [more]

Re: European journey

1poorlady fell in love with the jamon. Very thinly sliced pig leg. It was everywhere in Madrid. I've never seen it here in the US (and certainly not Phoenix). She's sad now. :-(

And she really liked the sangria. She's already bought a bottle [more]

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

Why do you think the rules and laws of this universe apply before it began?

I don't believe I said that anywhere, nor implied it. If I did, it was an error. If there are other universes (the math says there likely are, but we can't [more]

Re: European journey

Lets just say they lived well.

Yes, that seemed clear. It wasn't a town of towering edifices and grand coliseums, but it was a well-engineered and from what I could see well decorated town.

Unlike Pompeii, they had sewers. [more]

If something came from nothing,...

C'mon, Nigel! You know better than this! The only ones who claim something came from nothing are theists. (Not slamming anyone, just stating a fact.)

While bloggers, Congress, and other delusional self-appointed "experts" continue to dispute the real experts, the US military does not. They are planning for it as the rising sea levels create several problems and an increased number of [more]

Re: Austrailian Solar plant

Very cool (no pun intended!). Solar thermal is the future, I'm quite convinced. At least until (and "if") we ever get fusion to work.

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

Is the existence of a creator plausible? Sure, origin is an all bets are off field.

Not following here. I know I disagree with this (i.e. it's not even remotely plausible, IMO), but I'm not sure what your point is regarding [more]

Re: European journey

I really, really hope that you had some experiences like that on your trip.

Fair comment. A lot of it was logistics. If I missed something, we have problems. Train schedules, fixing glasses, buying stuff we needed but didn’t have. You [more]

Re: Charlie

I don't FB much, and have very few FB friends. But I hope he is on the road to a full (and lasting) recovery. Please feel free to relate that to him, and I hope to read him on the boards again soon.

Re: Natural gas

First bit of advice: unless you are competent with such work, hire a pro to do the hook-up. Gas is not something you want to mess with. In some places I think it's even illegal unless you are licensed to do so. When we had ours done they used a [more]

Re: Sulu nails it

I don't know this Papantonio guy from Adam. It is asserted he's a lawyer. Evidently he believes the HL decision is going to open up owners to direct liability (i.e. they can be sued).

Also, there is a not-insignificant segment of the medical profession that believes nothing should be OTC. Not even aspirin. They have a valid point in that people are all different, and on occasion something will affect someone differently (or not [more]

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

Do you find a creator implausible?

I didn't used to, just unlikely. But the more I think about it the more I have to say "yes, it is entirely implausible".

Not that you were talking to me, of course! :-)

Re: Sulu nails it

It may send a scary message regarding the way the Supreme Court is thinking about some of this stuff, but this decision does not, by itself, open up a Pandora's Box of religious exemptions to all laws everywhere.
