i am going to try to live without needing the board so much for awhile.
the only reason i am saying anything is that i am horrible at sending pm's, emails, etc.
and i dont want people to wonder in the back of their mind where i am, if all is ok.. i am tired all the time and i just want to see what my life can be like not in constant thought about the jw world running through my brain.. i will wonder how everyone is doing and would welcome emails.

let's not turn this into an argument thread over religion vs. atheism, ok?
i just bought the book and it's really refreshing to read his thoughts.
i need a dictionary though because his vocab range is broader than mine.

i'm not talking about the simple belief that there is no god and that religion is a brake on the development of humanity but the aggressive and vocal campaign to convince others of such?.
what's wrong with that?
why do believers feel so offended when i try to reason with them on the invalidity of their faith and the abusive nature of religious institutions?

astronomers crunch numbers, universe gets bigger
columbus , ohio that intergalactic road trip to triangulum is going to take a little longer than you had planned.. an ohio state university astronomer and his colleagues have determined that the triangulum galaxy, otherwise known as m33, is actually about 15 percent farther away from our galaxy than previously measured.. kris stanek.
this finding implies that the hubble constant, a number that astronomers rely on to calculate a host of factors -- including the size and age of the universe -- could be significantly off the mark as well.. that means that the universe could be 15 percent bigger and 15 percent older than any previous calculations suggested.. the astronomers came to this conclusion after they invented a new method for calculating intergalactic distances, one that is more precise and much simpler than standard methods.

i know there are a lot of threads on evolution and creation and i've read a few here and there.
how can complex systems arise of themselves in the face of entropy?
one evolutionist book i read used snowflakes to show this is possible.
