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...

I think you were probably drunk when you wrote that. Well, at least that's how I act, half of the times.

RE: Logic 101
Sorry Stimbo, I only did it to invigorate the thread. I take it that it's no longer a necro.

Anyway, here's my take on logic101.
The easiest logic fallacy people make is is by not following the logic triangle.

Eg, If I say Stimbo is a man, and then state that Jesus was a man, does that mean that Stimbo is Jesus?
Answer: of course not, Stimbo is REAL.

Yes, I'm reasonably confident in my answer.

Well, I've never seen the two of them in the same room together, and I have never seen Batman and Bruce Wayne in the same room together....

There's something amusing about an atheist forum with a logic 101 thread, in which the only category is "Logical Fallacies"  Big Grin

No true logical fallacies ??
The problem with 90% of the politicians is they make the other 10% look bad.

I thought I'd throw it in since this thread bobbed up! Apologies to those who are sick of hearing about my website. I sadly haven't had the energy to do anything new to it for a while now, but I'm sure I will in the future.
Feel free to send me a private message.
Please visit my website here! It's got lots of information about atheism/theism and support for new atheists.
