Chatter / Venus and Jupiter so close, they will look boring.

In a few hours on the US sunset, Venus and Jupiter will be 2-3 arc-minutes apart. They will be pretty close for European veiwers as well.

In Australia, they were 30' apart, which is not so amazing. So I will have to wait for the next one.

Those hands came from a dead child's body.  That's the only sad part for me.  Something in my mind automatically went to seeing those hands as a dead child not necessarily "regrowing" limbs. 

Don't get me wrong I'm glad Zion got the hands but I'm sad they came from a dead child. 

If a god would help out then there does not have to be a dead child.  Sorry so gloomy this morning.  I'm just really sad about the dead child.

What I find amazing are the hand-less artists that paint and play musical instruments despite their handicaps.

Let's just sum this up.  People don't kill in the name of Charlotte's Web because it is not violent.   

You can however get very inspired to kill somebody by reading the bible and thinking this is what a God wants me to do.  History is my evidence.

One thing that always gets me about this BS is that there were less people on the planet, in the past for instance in 1983 bc the was about 250 million people on the planet. there is now 27 times that many. So if past life was true then millions of us all lived the same past life, it makes perfect sense doesn't it. The other thing is nobody seem to be anybody insignificant. they are always someone special or have something eventful.  Total BS anybody believing it is an imbecile.

Maybe you mean year 983 there was 250 million  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population_estimates

If you want to compensate for higher populations, you just reincarnate people faster. Also, you can pull people in from parallel universes, that have had mass extinction events.

yep. Zion seems like a pretty cool kid and I do hope he does very very well.    Again, the gods are failures and humanity has gone ahead and done what their believers constantly make false claims about.

I was thinking of that too.   One can pretty much guarantee that the parents were treated medically when they were children but they want to experiment with their religion by sacrificing their children to it.

You should say "I now know what Eddie was saying".
You clarified what you meant, so further comment by me would have been superfluous.

Religion In The News / Re: Religious Woman Planned to Kill Stephen Hawking
« Last post by jetson on Yesterday at 07:17:05 AM »
What bugs me here is the fact that the woman appears to be Christian, but the article never mentions her faith. What would the reporting be like if she was Muslim? Because it seems to me that when Christians do stupid s**t to hurt others, they're "clearly mentally unstable/ill/insert vaguely appropriate politically correct term here", but when members of certain other faith(s) do it, they're just religious zealots, pure evil that just wants to kill. Maybe it's just me, but I've been noticing this strange disparity for ... well, about a decade and a half now.

Also, a good question would be if people like the woman in the article can, ultimately, be helped. And, more importantly, what that help might imply in how to even define it. Can people like that be deprogrammed and if so, can they be happy in their new, non-religious or at least non-zealous state of mind?

I would agree that the reporting can be frustratingly lopsided in terms of calling out "Christians" who perpetrate such things. However, I believe there is a general undertone at the water coolers where most people seem to agree that there is no way a true Christian would do such a thing, especially on behalf of their Christian beliefs. Fellow Christians do not accept that God spoke to Andrea Yates, instead they consider her a nutjob. If not that, they tend to immediately project godless onto such a person.

what of the idiots who refuse blood transfusions?   I do agree that most would never ignore the help of science and tech.

Indeed, there are plenty of idiots (forgot about those). Reminds me of some parents of minor children who seem happy to put their child's life at risk, but not so much their own.
