- Francis Harry Compton Crick, OM, FRS was an English molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist, most noted for being a co-discoverer of the structure of the DNA molecule in 1953 with James D. Watson."You would be more likely to assemble a fully functioning and flying jumbo jet by passing a hurricane through a junk yard than you would be to assemble the DNA molecule by chance. In any kind of primeval soup in 5 or 600 million years, it’s just not possible"
Aliens? Yes, I believe in them (aliens = demons). I try to keep up with all of the "news" about them, because I know that they shall "arrive" soon. Ready for them? As much as I know how to be, but not in the fashion that many people are. Aliens/demons...a rose is a rose, regardless of what you call it, and their smell though not sweet, has never changed.
The more that I read your posts, the more that I come to believe that even though your and my beliefs frequently cross paths, the more I come to feel that the trails that we are traveling aren't necessarily headed for the same destination. That makes it difficult for me to either agree or disagree with what you say, because I'm not only uncertain of your destination, but also where you are coming from?
Quite so, Achille's heel of yours. And to return to the topic... I guess the answer would be no - we don't seem to be ready for humans, do we?They only want to hear what they want to hear, and that is only what they already believe, because if they don't believe it, it must not be true.
It wasn't necessary for you to declare yourself an atheist, because you made that quite clear at several points in your post, however it was about the only thing you said that made any sense to me. I wouldn't be foolish enough to attempt to change your beliefs, because you have also made it quite clear that would be a waste of time. Still, I always find it ironic that those who support their views by espousing them as being based on objectivity and open mindedness, are the ones that are the most closed minded and subjective. They only want to hear what they want to hear, and that is only what they already believe, because if they don't believe it, it must not be true.
While it would be possible to go further, the only thing that I shall address in your post. is the statement that there is scientific proof that God doesn't exist. That is totally false. In fact, there is scientific proof that God does exist, but being that what is "scientific" is based on the biases of those comprising the core of the scientific community, those proofs are not given validity.I see your point, but me not believing is based on there not being any scientific proof of any supreme being. I could of course be wrong. My world view is simple. Be kind, do whats right and don't need a god to scare me into doing those things. I do them as they're the right things to do. I was once told by some religious type that being an Atheist makes me less moral somehow. I'd really like to understand how that works.
