Assuming your type is having this text read aloud for them, Haha. See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil; maybe someday it'll go away but so far only a prayer can make that happen!

Maybe atheists are right. Maybe God does not exist afterall..but then aliens can exist.

Another interesting idea is that there were humans even before Adam and Eve..

But why put 2 trees in Garden of Eden if not supposed to eat from them without warning sign? Why nowaday people can't get same choice? This is work of those who want people to not succeed..

Arrow

The real problem is not choice, it's evolving education!
(We're all doomed because you keep having babies*, pass your genes along as knowledge!)

Some people aren't taught at all, others learn too much bad before even getting to school!

In a standardized education religion is not allowed. The higher up you go and the more you learn about all the religions, you see that they can't all be right‽ And, seems how none of them are reality we should only choose the best of the best! If evils exists at all it's because of false religions as unevolved teachings!

(But, like I said we're all doomed anyways or at least hopefully just two-thirds of us‽)

Arcane (seemingly) mistakenly put mass extinction when we were discussing turning points in humanity almost becoming extinct, for example the Black Death (Bubonic Plague - 1347 to 1351) or perhaps next a nuclear war or more than likely people just keep having babies so the World falls out of orbit like a simple calculator multiplying with 7 and 1/2 billion &c just gets an error!

This is where we both agree. Did you read that wattpad article about how schools instead of properly preparing for life turn people into walking flesh&bone vegetated minds who behave like animals therefore not succeed at life after school?

Apologies for overlooking your comment.

I guess I didn't make that clear enough, but I was only trying to explain how weird an absolute negative position looks.

As for a Belief (B) in negatiations, I assume it would be something like this (with p being "god absolutely(must) exist"):

Bp (p is true, theist)
B~p (p is false, atheist)
~Bp^~B~p (neither exist, agnostic)

Both "Bp" and "B~p" need a similar strong "burden of proof" in philosophie (being mathematical mirrors and only dealing with a very ambitious "must" claim, "B~p" results in "god can't exist").
Likewise, "~Bp^~B~p" needs one as well as it's really a secondary belief on top of p.

PS: Do feel free to correct where you think I'm wrong.

Talking

LOL

I wouldn't say that we couldn't support 30 or 40* billion people on this planet... if we evolve to that point!

Education can make you believe anything, fortunately as a little kid I knew Sunday school was a joke!

Also fortunately, I got asthma so I used the militant recruiters after High School to get a ride home before I told them... HAHA!

Let's face it politics, religion, war, they're all the same: don't talk about them unless you're good friends or on the Internet!

That would explain recent years..
Quote:
Potential

Defined as people who possess specific qualities of enlightenment, awareness and/or the ability to bend aspects of the Matrix to their will.
MAGGIE

Potentials (occasionally confused with Redpills[1]) were humans who had started to reject the Matrix to some extent, but were not yet fully awakened. Some had abilities within the Matrix, while others perhaps simply witnessed something they couldn't explain and were under threat from Agents as a result. Freed children were still called potentials during testing to see if they had what it took to one day become fully fledged operatives, as they were only able to join a hovercraft crew at the age of seventeen[2]
