    "when I'm dead, it will be the same as before I was concived. no counsciousness"

    That sounds like exactly what I meant. Thanks! It's my understanding that the universe is finite and all matter is disintegrating and all energy is dissipating as the universe expands. Then again, we're talking trillions of years here, that's a long time for us but it's nothing compared to...

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    My view is in general and for the long run. What I'm seeing over time is that humankind carries forward an ever-advancing civilization. You and I are so much better off than our grandparents, and our grandkids will be so much better off than us.

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    What I'm getting here is an overwhelmingly unhealthy attitude that's clouding perception. Let's think about this and get back to it later.

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    --and that's how life works and life is good. Real good.

    "when I'm dead, it will be the same as before I was concived. no counsciousness"

    Of course it's vague and useless. Believe it or not I'm not trying to be as rude as this may seem, please forgive and be patient w/ me as I'm at a loss to know how to explain this in any other terms. That one sentence was one of six that I was sharing w/ Viker and I'm looking forward to...

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    Most cops don't break the law. When a few actually do break the law the majority of good cops are the ones who arrest the bad cops. We don't want to attack those good cops that are arresting the bad cops because that puts us on the side of the bad cops.

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    Naturally there are many views on this. My suspicion is that most healthy people like the universe and they like humanity. Most folks understand that human life is sacred and they make laws to prevent murder. I say it's good what most people do. You seem to say that the world is better than...

    "when I'm dead, it will be the same as before I was concived. no counsciousness"

    What you're saying is true, and at the same time you know a lot about what happened before you were born. You're alive right now yet in your understanding you can "see" before you were born, as you can "see" the possible futures long after you've left this world. We live in a 3 dimension +...

    How It Is That Bad Cops Are The Majority Of Cops

    Time to take stock and look at where we are. We see that the world is good and that people are good. We live in an interesting universe where things can be good AND they can get better. Humans gather and form governments that hire cops to maintain order. This means that in general...

    End of the World

    My prediction is that folks will most probably see the sun have a new dawn tomorrow & probably the next day. We can also see that in about 4-1/2 billion years the sun's size will expand past the present orbit of Mars but the planets may have already left because the sun's gravity's will be...

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    We pretty much have agreement that the earth will continue to rotate and the sun will come up over the horizon tomorrow. The reason we can have confidence in that happening is because we've got a specific mass behaving in a specific manner. We don't have it with climate. We don't know what...

    What if you were told you were dying?

    We're all dying. That's ok because right now we're all alive. To me that's good news.

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    What I've seen is that the market price of what folks call "fossil fuels" has been stable/dropping over the past two centuries. To me that means we're not hitting shortages.

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    Ok, so we can agree that nothing bad is happening now, and you have an opinion about the future. Like Yogi Berra once said, predictions are really hard to make --especially about the future.

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    We concur. We concur. A quick google/duckduckgo search w/ "how much hotter is the world" gives dozens of hits w/ some kind of rise in temp. They're all different. What we know is that there's a big fuss about his issue. My problem is that whenever I ask what the problem is they say I'm a...

    End of the World

    If we say the world is our planet, then we can see that the earth's going around the sun and will continue to do so for billions of years. If we say that the world is humanity then we can tell the world that this is what we've decided. That world changes and the way the world worked has...

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    There are a lot of points there that we could go into but my thinking is that what is important is what you are saying now. What I'm getting from you now is: The earth is not harmfully hotter now compared to before. You are concerned about the world being harmfully hotter in the future. Do I...

    End of the World

    Meriam Webster's Dictionary has 14 different definitions of "world", and that means that the phrase "end of the world" can have a number of possible meanings. You suggested "nuclear war, disease, climate change, AI, a combination of these or something else?" That suggests we could have an "end...

    Human-caused climate change - what the scientists are actually saying

    Work with me on this because we're not communicating. What I said was that if the world's scientists said water was not wet, what I would do would be to see for myself. You said was that every single paper agreed and that not one single scientist disagreed. We're not seeing the same thing...

    End of the World

    Am I wrong to understand that your take on the "end of the world" is that it's something that happens all the time in many forms?
