Heaven forbid we add “the supernatural “ to the ToE! My interpretation of religion, religious texts, etc. are all natural. Same for the ToE. However, historically this concept, the supernatural, is also interwoven into the way we all think. That you bring up “the supernatural “ just to deny it shows how inter-woven it is.

The ToE is a story to. Theories are generalizations about facts. There is no absolute separation between the stories that have evolved over time. They inter-weave all in our history. Stories continuously evolve Susan. I believe they will continue to do so.

Well said Susan. It just see, to me that as a generalization, we should see existence as survival. What exists survives, what survives exists. Taking the next breath, a survival skill. Eating healthy meals, a survival skill, etc. It is kind of a true but minimalist view of existence it seems to me. It seems to me that a good life should be based on these survival skills, and once that’s d

Well, the game is heating up. “ The United States conducted a military airstrike in eastern Syria along the border with Iraq targeting Iranian-backed militias in retaliation for a recent rocket strike in Erbil in northern Iraq that left several Americans injured, according to a U.S. official. The airstrike targeted structures in the eastern Syrian town of Al Bukamal that belong to Kataib

QuoteGerda stated But a ferret can get in. Oh dear, I am glad not to be a rabbit! According to the show we saw, the ferret family, including honey badgers and wolverines, are among the cleverest animals known. And they are excellent in tunnels! Me to on your last point!

QuoteSusan queried Hmmmm, well, if the natural reaction is to freeze with fear, then I think it must have caused more to survive than did not because that is still the natural reaction, isn't it? Here Susan you are applying a story without thinking about what you are saying. The answer is no, animals that get frozen by fear generally get eaten and do not survive to reproduce. We wer

Hi Susan, I suggest “reasons” are just descriptions of our experience. They are stories. Remember, we consider facts true but a theory is an interpretation or description of many experiences and the facts that come out of them. Theories are belief systems, i.e., stories. Being frozen with fear in the dark is not a survival skill. Not allowing oneself to be put into scary situations in the

“ That might seem to some like reaching, but to me it's reaching to suggest that the Egyptians and the Maya developed a tendency toward pyramid building completely independent of one another, particularly with some of the similarities that have been suggested for the major Giza pyramids and the major Teotihuacan pyramids. ” If as most historians and geneticists think, that homo began in Africa

Nothing simple about that! I read your article about the Moon, very interesting. Thanks. However, your view that the capture of the Moon 40,000 ya does not seem helpful to Plato’s Atlantis. Way to early, it would seem to me. Those Egyptian priests would have had to:maintain an amazing chain of evidence for all those years.

“ To give an example: Only Newton's law of gravity made physics out of Kepler's laws.” I agree! Observations are observations, facts are fact, but mathematics will always represent the golden rule. Maths and theories are cultural objects, like the Bible. Belief systems are belief systems because they work. They do work! NASA and Elon will send ships to Mars thanks to Newtonian math.

QuoteAloys stated It is unknown whether such manipulations of numbers have any physical background or is just coincidence. In any case, current elementary particle physics cannot assign a deeper meaning to this finding. Perhaps a new physics is hinted at by such contexts. That the standard model has several weaknesses is consensus in the scientific community. Critics go as far as to question th

I was thinking of this post Yve. It reminded me of Plato’s Myth of the Cave. Instead of prisoners, the cats were enticed to watch images of mice. The images were projected from behind the cats. Using a fire, the owners used sticks with little mice silhouettes on them. The owners were trying to teach the cats to hunt the cave’s mouse population. Needless to say, the cats were not amused. Th

“ Infections are down for lots of reasons: improving compliance with social distancing, vaccination of the most susceptible, and recovered who may have some immediate limited immunity to this current strain.” Great points Ray!

“ Perhaps 55% don't get sick because they have almost total immunity that might protect them from even a severe exposure but many of those not getting extremely sick either need a far larger exposure or have so much partial immunity that they barely get sick at all. ” What do you think is the source of this immunity Sam?

Great question Gerda. We recently moved to a small town in Florida. Our house os in a lovely community full of Oak trees, palms, and flowering plants. We have street lights but they are not oppressive. It is starting to stay bright longer and we always seem to have some sun. But nighttime is nighttime. Amateur astronomy is a hobby so I love being in the dark with binoculars and/or telescope.

Here is an interesting Wall Street Zjournal article by Dr. Marty Makary: It is entitled, “ We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April” From the article, “ Amid the dire Covid warnings, one crucial fact has been largely ignored: Cases are down 77% over the past six weeks. If a medication slashed cases by 77%, we’d call it a miracle pill. Why is the number of cases plummeting much faster than experts
