to whomever shall read this,
It's nice to see that the creator of the video proffering 10 "fascinating" questions chooses the moral high ground in enlightening us delusional, yet educated Christians with his facile condescension. It says nothing perhaps that most of those questions can be answered by the simple analogy of a disobedient child and his/her parent. We are the scions of the templates for humanity that chose disobedience over the righteousness of obedience to their creator and are now suffering the consequences. I don't think punishment is the right word, but, rather, the effects of the original causal action. Much like a child who selfishly chooses to disobey a parent who warns not to play so close to the street. Unfortunately, it's our legacy.
I have no definitive answer to the first posit concerning the amputee. Oddly, I feel the narrator seems to focus much of his energy on this one (it is the domain name after all) as though anticipating this to be an unsolvable conundrum. To this I merely ask: does the mathematical impossibility of a bumblebee's capacity for flight debunk the rationality of mathematics, or the empirically proven flight of the bumblebee?
And since the narrator also seems to possess a monopoly on answers, perhaps he (or whomever shall speak on his behalf) could fill me on some questions that have plagued me for some time:
1) If one can look at a truck, or pencil, or cake, and conclude that it's origins lay in intelligent design, why is it so hard to fathom the same conclusion for the exponentially more complex universe and everything contained within?
2) If practitioners of religion are delusional, then the precepts borne of such delusion would have to be equally ludicrous, yes? Since, as is claimed, there is no God, why is it generally accepted by humanity that murder, stealing, etc. are all bad when these concepts run contrary to the Survival of the Fittest notion of Charles Darwin. I watched a pack of hyenas blatantly steal a lion's food away from him after he killed it on National Geographic the other day, yet they suffered no moral repercussions from it; the lion didn't either for that matter. So why should I be locked up for stealing another man's belongings?
3) What happened the nanosecond before the big bang? You know, where did all the stuff that makes up the universe come from?
4) What is the mathematical probability--the actual conclusive figure--that the universe, and everything contained within--coalesced from purely random chaos? Did you know that the Tampa Bay Rays were a 200/1 shot at winning the '08 World Series?
5) Why can't we create life from scratch? We can duplicate it, but cannot create it. Why is that?
A delusional nut
P.S. I haven't actually finished my bachelor's degree yet. I'll understand if that precludes my participation from your interesting sociological questionnaire.
