Zero Edge I will never understand the amount of mental gymnastics to not understand "every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord." (Philippians 2:10-11). To act like God's character isnt that of mercy. "I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." (Luke 15:7) . The One who leaves the 99 and goes after the one lost sheep. Don't be like the brother of the prodigal son. Rejoice with heaven at their return whether early or late.
Zero Edge Since area codes are no longer optional (even if in the same area) does that mean it is incorrect to do area codes in parentheses now? (xxx) xxx-xxxx vs xxx-xxx-xxxx?
Zero Edge The Bible is filled with stories of the righteous being upset about God having mercy on the unrighteous. Jonah, The Prodigal Son, and more.. Seems to me like the parable of the laborers (Matthew 20:1-16) is the most un preached upon parable in the entire Bible. I wonder why? Because it goes against your bad doctrine and says who is in charge of salvation. Don't preach about who isn't saved. You don't have that role and you never will.
Zero Edge Trump1.
Zero Edge The funniest joke boomers tell is that millennials are entitled. Ask anyone in service. You guys are straight up pricks.
Zero Edge Small businesses are tired of the credit card mobopoly where we hand over 2% of our revenue to a system that wont take any steps to protect us from "friendly fraud" which is expected to exceed over $100b this year.
♟️ Inverse Replica I have completely separated my "public" life from my private life, i.e. use different phone numbers, email addresses, social media accounts and even hardware. Now, when the weekend starts or I am on holidays, I know that only friends and family are even able to get in touch with me and I must say, it's a completely different quality of life
Zero Edge This is amazing. I wanna!
Zero Edge There were people in the crowd before his speech was even over saying "after the speech were storming the capitol", half the people in the crowd couldn't even hear his speech because the speakers were so bad, he said what the people were already thinking "that election was like no other that we have ever witnessed", we didn't need a person to tell us what we saw, we saw it with our own eyes, this man couldn't convince his base to take a vaccine he was critically involved in, are we blind sheep when we use our own judgement to decide what is right and wrong. Your bias is obvious and so is mine, but one is truth and one is politics.
Zero Edge I always liked Bitcoin's (oops I mean HashCash's) first use case.. Email stamps to mitigate spam...
Zero Edge The narrow door leads to life.
Zero Edge Peace TRUMPs hate.
Zero Edge If you think "simulation theory" is a thing then you too are a creationist..
Zero Edge In The Beginning was the Word.
☕ David Antoine I don't know if I should consider the laws of physics as a highly complex system in itself as physicists still don't know exactly what's fundamental and what's emergent. QM for example describes reality with probabilities while ensuring they strictly sum to 1 and is all constraint by the Pythagoras theorem and the imaginary number. They call it the unitarity. Simple basics, complex world. Same for life down the road, provided you have the right initial conditions. I just watched this, he talks about why is there something rather than nothing better then me and it is obsoletely not trivial:
Zero Edge Got it, so something coded itself. Much more believable.. A simple system that is capable of becoming a complex system is a complex system..

☕ David Antoine How that system capable of self replication started initially is one of the most difficult problem scientists are trying solve. It probably took several hundred millions of years and countless false starts to initiate in its simplest form and did not just "popped into existence". Finding other replication pathways with unique other life forms maybe in our own solar system may help in solving how it started. And that purely scientific endeavor works with or without God. Creationism doesn't work without God. Even if our civilization would disappear and then restart somehow fresh, the laws of physics will remain the same. Not religion.
Zero Edge So your argument is that a highly complex system always existed (the laws of physics as you put it) but that isn't the only complex system you think always existed you believe every system including weather, life (birth), the complexities of the quantum realm, fire, and way more that I can't think of. Nothing in this universe is 'simple'. That is fine you believe a complex system always existed. I believe a extremely complex system always existed and it gave birth to our complex system. How exactly does your belief require any less faith than mine?
☕ David Antoine For the big bang to be debunked you would need one or more irreconcilable observations with the current model. And probably some kind of new quantum gravity theory to explain what happened at the singularity. Provided you can make sense of time and find a physical equivalent of the mathematical infinite that the singularity represents. Creationism is just religious nonsense. At least the Bible's fundamentalist literal interpretation of the creation. Believing there is a super power at the origins of the universe itself is something I relate to spiritually but doesn't make me reject science. Both are not mutually exclusive for me.
Zero Edge You literally believe the same thing either way. Either something always existed or something came from nothing. You believe a highly complex system that is capable of self replication and capable of creating complex systems such as life itself popped into existence. Just the simple interaction such as "this early particle interacted with this early particle to create a reaction" is belief that something existed (a fundamental structure at the very least). Our system is complex and no matter how you try to explain it you either believe: Something came from nothing, or something always existed.
