    Personally I am not a fan of Nato either. And right now I fear a war between Russian vs Ukraine/Nato

    If Satan exists it is either an angel or another God and not human nor animal.

    Humans are multicellular eukaryotic organisms with DNA contained in a membrane-bound nucleus, who consume organic matter and are capable of loco motion. So yes, humans are animals.


    I don't know. Are angels multicellular eukaryotic organisms with DNA contained in a membrane-bound nucleus, who consume organic matter and are able of loco motion? If yes, then they are animals.

    I think about a billion catholics would disagree with that. That is, if they agree with the official position of the vatican / pope on this issue.

    Only if he thinks that angels and gods are multicellular eukaryotic organisms with DNA contained in a membrane-bound nucleus, who consume organic matter and are able of loco motion.


    Funny how a guy who likes to start his posts with narcistic emphasis on his "cv" and his "gold medals" doesn't seem to realize that a label like "animal" is bound to a certain definition and that organisms that fit that definition are as a result actually animals. By definition.

    Oh well............

    Just adding in my two cents that Satan (Not his name but his title) is the 'god' of this world of badness.

    Yes, when the average house cat steals meat off your dinner plate when you get up to get something out of the fridge. I've seen it happen.

    Our fight is not against Ukraine, but against evil spirit - the Death herself.

    Bears and wolves do build nests, engage socially, etc. based on innate response mechanisms, which we also have. Humans have a unique ability to munipulate their environment unlike these critters and can create nests. social engagements, etc. to larger degrees in a way that our innate response mechanisms respond with increased stimuli (which ethologists call "supernormal stimuli").

    "God," "Angels," "Demons" and "Satan" are examples; our beast brains seek out patterns that match innate response mechanisms for "Parent" or "Enemy" or "Safety" or "Danger" and we can create symbols that satisfy these patterns to a large degree. It's a part of human behavior; our own ethology.

    That would be one way to explain the lack of evidence.

    I am sure that there is evidence of deception.

    Yes and I'm sure the evidence would also show it is humans causing the deception.
