Like for example: "The Universe is proof of a God."
"The Forest is proof of Unicorns"

And so on...
Yes, but what about the proof of the pudding in its tasting?

Why not just lock the thread Kay?

Fine - bring us a pudding and we'll taste it.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

RE: Logic 101
"This is a thread which will serve as a kind of index for other threads which deal with certain aspects of logic. Anyone who wants to contribute should start a new thread dedicated to some part of logic (an argument, a fallacy, etc), and then contact a staff member so that this thread can be updated."

Sounds like this was intended to be a locked thread requiring a mod assist to update. Otherwise, so long as people understand that former participants in the thread may no longer be interested, members or even above ground, who really cares if an old thread gets a bump? Seems like it is treated more as a guideline than a rule, don't you think?

RE: Logic 101
I came to this forum to educate myself... And I have ... I have learnt stuff and am now more confused.

What is the bloody purpose of life!
Who gives a shit how it got here!

I prefer the evolution theory but again, what for?
Why would nature bother? Or it doesn't? What happens happens because intervention would be required to stop it from happening... I'm cool with that.

So in a nutshell, we are here ultimately, for no other reason other than we are one piece of the result of a BB.
Nothing more, nothing less.. I'm cool with that too... Nature is not consciously intelligent in itself, so we can't blame nature for our being. We just blame existence. That's it... It's a bit of a downer I s'pose. But I'm not going to accept bullshit for the sake of it, meaning I don't give a fuck about trying to satisfy my fragile ego and give myself some higher purpose to feel warm and fuzzy...

Completely irrelevent Rant over

Did your completely irrelevant rant not qualify for a thread of its own, instead requiring you to necropost despite the big red banner warning and advising you not to do it?

It seems newbies tend to miss the big red notice.
Perhaps pink would work better, no?

Is this going to be an analannual tradition now?
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
