I am Nobody
« on: March 04, 2014, 11:39:09 AM »
Who am I? Nobody! (AKA Some Random Dude On The Internet.)

I guess that I would say I am an agnostic atheist. Maybe an ignostic atheist. I simply lack belief and knowledge, and really don't have much use for god/religion. Even though I don't much care for that stuff, the conversation can be interesting.

I am not a college graduate, but I hope to hold my own in such discussions. All I ask is to not get too heavy on the philosophy front. If you do, you might have to dumb it down.

Questions?

Welcome to the forum, Nobody. I am All. :P
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Welcome to the forum!  You may find that subjects that you didn't think you'd find interesting or worthwhile can become interesting once you hear different points of view.  I find this to be a great forum for sharing ideas or just reading posts during your morning coffee (or afternoon cocktail).  Don't worry, I'm not a college grad either, just someone interested in religion or the lack of.

Hello.

A diploma on the wall doesn't make you smart, but the willingness to learn and understand does.

Seconded.  The great thing about knowledge is that you don't need paper (money) or paper (diploma) to reap the rewards.  It's literally the only level playing field in the developed world.  I'm in high school and I can still talk about this stuff (just at a lower level of vocabulary.)

I'm Benny.  Welcome aboard.  Don't take yourself too seriously.

I could name a lot of people with PhDs who are not especially bright. The difference between a stupid person and an intelligent person, and you can quote me, is "an intelligent person says stupid things most of the time, and a stupid person keeps repeating it." If you have any doubt about this I will provide a link to a financial lecturer and advisor at a university who has his own Sumerian website where he states that humans were not able to speak but communicated by "bodily gestures" until the Sumerians invented language. He then gives a fake history of the Sumerian language as interpreted by himself.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Welcome to the forum, JN. Let me know if that's an unacceptable shortening of your name.

Don't be too scared of Nam. He can be acidic, but acid has many useful applications  ;).

JN is fine. I prefer Joe, but whatever leads to less confusion (there most likely being multiple "Joe"s who post here).
