Re: 60 percent believe in Noah's Ark

It's when it's tied to religion that all common sense goes out the window. Dinosaurs aboard the ark? 250,000 species of moths?

I have it on good authority that the ark was actually the second attempt at building a big boat to carry [more]

Re: I could change my mind

there are more than five centuries before reaching the 3°C increase after an instantaneous doubling of CO2 and an increase in CO2 of 1%/yr thereafter.

Re: I could change my mind

Being "generally honest" is often not good enough. There is a reason medical research is often done with double blind studies.

Re: I could change my mind

If we use the 1.5°C figure, then if CO2 reaches 600ppm in 2067 (as in the A1B scenario) we would have a temp increase over the next half century of something like 0.7°C which is hardly catastrophic and gives the human race 50 years to [more]

Re: Discussing extreme weather:most common falla

Re: OT: Clock for math geeks

Log (55) for 4? Log (55) is >1 and <2. Ln (55) is 4.

Technically, log(x) is meaningless because the logarithm isn't specified. Convention usually has it as log base 10 but one could argue that it refers to an [more]

Re: New minus IQ Pill

Interestingly, an IQ less than 0 is technically possible. Mensa defines IQ as a normal distribution centred around 100 with a standard deviation of 16. An IQ of 0 is 6.25 standard deviations below the mean and would represent one person with a lower [more]

You can construct a "moral code", but I'd argue that it would be merely a list of your personal preferences, with no authority or "ought" attached to them.

The problem is that those starting assumptions are arbitrary and come in a near infinity number of varieties and combinations.

Re: Does the bible add value

It's a loaded question based on an incorrect assumption.

Which assumption was incorrect? I don't see that there are any assumptions in the question other than assuming that you do communicate which you believe to be fact or fiction. [more]

I don't see any reason to reject the good stories just because they are in the Bible.

I agree. It's a good story and probably better written than many that came before it which is why it stood the test of time.
