  • Do you believe that different animals and humans 'evolved', or is this scientists propaganda for their cause?

    Best answer: Believe is the wrong word. I accept the overwhelming evidence that evolution is the best explanation for the diversity of life that we observe.

    Best answer: Believe is the wrong word. I accept the overwhelming evidence that evolution is the best explanation for the diversity of life that we observe. Seriously, there isn't even any other explanation for the head-to-head fusion of simian chromosome 2 in humans and the presence of endogenous retroviral DNA at the same base pairs in related species. The best alternative explanation I've heard is that god put that evidence there to fool people who believe evidence over the word of god... But that would make god a liar and a trickster...you could never trust anything such a being said.

  • Is it dangerous if I summon a demon?

    Best answer: Demons are not proven to exist. Make sure you properly film and document everything, preferably under laboratory conditions, minimum 3 camera angles in a well-lit room and make sure to capture activity which defies any natural explanation. I've tried several times, just to prove a point. Unless you are faking it, nothing... show more
    Best answer: Demons are not proven to exist. Make sure you properly film and document everything, preferably under laboratory conditions, minimum 3 camera angles in a well-lit room and make sure to capture activity which defies any natural explanation. I've tried several times, just to prove a point. Unless you are faking it, nothing happens. Demons seem to be allergic to science and education to they only show up to the under-educated in circumstances where the evidence cannot be recorded... Which is effectively the same as their nonexistence in the first place.

    Best answer: Not really. The stuff I liked about those years is all still readily accessible -- movies and music primarily.

  • Fireball you say you’re injured and in pain. If there’s a God why would he allow you to suffer?

    Best answer: I don't know why you give her the time of day. She's clearly unhinged, delusional and substantially ignorant of anything beyond her personal dogma. It's like talking to a wall. Better to let her die in peace so the rest of us can quickly forget about her.

    Best answer: No. God is supposedly all powerful, so killing his own son wasn't necessary in any way, had he simply been more competent, less evil or both. Furthermore, we only need "saving" because God demands punishment for humans having exactly the nature he supposedly created us with. AND he supposedly knew all this would happen in advance AND this was all according to plan. Absolutely barking mad that anyone thinks this is how the world actually is.

  • Is there such a thing as free will?

    Best answer: No, cognitive neuroscience has demonstrated that free will does not exist by showing that your brain makes decisions and begins to take action on the choice prior to your conscious awareness that the choice has been made. The illusion of free will is a post hoc rationalization of the choices already made.
