Hold on, let me double down on this idea instead. The quantum mechanics model of the atom tells you that there is some probability for an electron to be in a certain area. The question of "how" the electron "moves" from one part of the area isn't part of the model and doesn't have any meaning. As long as the theory makes correct predictions, it's a good and useful theory.

Science as magic may still get you killed like flicking a match a 1,000 years ago demons.

It's a formal discussion between actual degree'd scientists, some of whom are strong Believers and others who are atheists (some capitalized Atheist, others, like Sam Harris, small case). It's not quite as contentious as many assume.

Hello business_kid. I've been reading and responding to jamison20000e for well over a year. His posts can be odd and dense but I don't think he is trolling. I think he is bright but unique in a loose, creative, free-associative kind of way. He also has a few axes to grind like the whole having children issue, and he can be blunt and slightly abrasive but sometimes he has a way of making very interesting examples and analogies in uniquely succinct ways.

Jamison please forgive or at least understand me that I don't mean to offend you by characterizing you as a bright oddball because I LIKE, even prefer, bright oddballs and unique individuals, especially compared to the many cardboard cutout personalities so common. That likely means I'm an oddball, too. Oh well, here's lookin' at you, Kid.

If you can believe anything or be anything, you'll murder someone for it or allow it!

But, evolution takes forever!

I try to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am however shamed to admit that I am a terrible example of one. Lot's to work on, self control being the main thing. To be fair though everyone could always do better, whether one believes or not.

Why not collaborate for it?

BTW Evolution is not Goal Oriented. It's just the random luck of the draw.

I'm continually baffled when anyone does that. All of their posts are just word-salad. There's nothing to even answer.
