Have you ever heard the old song "One Tin Soldier" by Coven? It was the theme song for the movie.
Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend,
Do it in the name of Heaven,
And be justified in the end...


was that the one? I woke up with that stuck in my head one morning last week.

synchronicity.

That's not on the list at Tom's link, but it is an obvious extrapolation of a gedanken experiment in Halliday and Resnik.

A golden oldie: I still love that song. I sent it to you in lieu of the fact that we would be having this discussion. :biggrin:

I am a Christian, but still I match scientist and philosopher.

Say, what were we talking about here ... Billy Jack...no, T-shirts...no, no, the basis of the US judicial system and foreign policy ? No...I get it; the obvious extrapolation of a gedanken experiment in Halliday and Resnik ! :biggrin:

Nothing couldn't - care - less

"one of christianity's worst enemies" {mispelling in original text!}
"utterly untouchable"

Boy, am I gonna burn!

Actually, I disagree with one part of the diagnosis. I DO care what people believe and how it affects the way they think and act.

P.S. I thought "atheist" just meant someone has dedicated onesself to the great god Athe (two-syllables) instead of one of the usual divinities. :smile:

Well I can't imagine why there is any confusion! :biggrin: Billy Jack refers to my bit of native American heritage and my interest in these beliefs. The Jack Mormon works since I am likely excumuinicated from the LDS by now - considering I haven't attended for twenty years. Since I have been born again and was raised catholic...and am a Jack Catholic at least.... In fact it is actually much more complicated than that. I explored a lot of religions while in my early twenties.
So what you're saying is that one of the test results ought to have been "Been-There-Done-That"? :biggrin:

Are you familiar with the essay "God and I" by Teresa Nielsen Hayden, which concerns how she (more or less) forced the LDS to formally excommunicate her?

Why do you think the United States, founded by our Four Fathers based the laws of the United States on the Ten Commandments?
Please see my response to this here.

I didn't want to derail this thread with my rant.

No but thanks. Very interesting.
And darned if the fellow didn't stand up, address the Almighty, and say "We thank Thee, O Lord, for bringing us together on this occasion--." I nearly swallowed my tongue trying to keep from laughing.
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: I can see why.

Two comments: I was told the long underswear is intended to prevent exposing one's self in any way that may be improper. The reason for this is to avoid tempting others. I don't know if this is really the original motive or not.

Edit: If this was really the motive - to prevent tempting others - then I would expect that the underwear would not be required once a person reaches a certain age; say by age....well...I dare not say when. :redface:

As for the curiously placed holes in the long underwear, I think this myth about the Mormons actually comes from the now all but extinct [Traditional] Shakers. It was not allowed for the bodies of a husband and wife to touch except through a hole in a sheet. :surprise:

Boy, that would be fun. :yuck:

Only in the sense that it's an obvious extrapolation of any good book on relativity. :biggrin:

Thx for the quiz. It was nice! Looks like there's plenty of atheists here - I'm one too! Anyway, i think it was the 'question5. Are you afraid of God?' I answered 'I'm not sure he exists'. Isn't that obvious?!

I guess it's a funny quiz, but pretty useless ! I've been flattered by philosopher/scientist, but I wanted that kind of result to get out ! And I would have been mad if they call me nothing !

That is not the answer of an atheïst. An atheïst would have responded "What is there to be afraid of?". Your answer is that of an agnost.
