Stocktor: you are in danger of beclowning yourself. Copernicus, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Guglielmo Marconi, all believed in God or a creator. If you know anything about physics, you would recognize the name "James Clerk Maxwell", noted Scottish physicist in the 19th century, also a believer. His work was highly esteemed and admired by Einstein. Einstein himself was not an atheist.
I would say that our astronauts were in the cosmological field. So far as I can determine, every one of them who went into space came back convinced of the existence of a God.
Your remarks about torture are irrelevant. That is bad human behavior, engaged in by atheists and churchmen alike.
The issue is whether intelligent people, even "scientists" can believe in a creator. Obviously, they can and do.
Yes he can!
So I guess you think jadelover has credibility? Let's see...."Sell PSEC before ex-div date. It's going to drop like a rock."
Guess who said that?
Metti: the Chinese are smart but not infallible. They can make mistakes and their mistakes can be whoppers. It wasn't that long ago that Mao instituted the "Great Leap Forward", which resulted in the deaths of millions and almost the destruction of the economy.
Right now they've got massive unrest in their western provinces. They've got massive pollution problems. Just those two things are more than a mouse fart. Please don't tell me how all-fired smart they are.
If all those things happen then all stocks will drop like a rock. So "The Great Karnak" you ain't. In fact, you ain't diddly.
Is it really hard to believe that King Bama would contradict himself within two days.
This is what enviropukes like "telaviv" don't grasp. India, China and emerging nations like Nigeria will not stop using coal. In fact, they will use more and more. Odumbo can't stop them. They will laugh at him if he tries. So even if the US ceases to burn coal, it will have little or no effect on global carbon emissions. It will, however, accelerate the slowdown and eventual destruction of our economy.
Duke Energy, like GE, is a notorious political suckup. They don't even mind wasting a few million on alternative energy pipedreams as long as it buys them favor with the left. Kinda like Buffett complaining that he's not taxed enough. It keeps the union goons and Occupy trash off his lawn. Meanwhile, he continues to employ an army of accountants and lawyers to keep his taxes as low as possible.
And The Netherlands, whose iconic symbol is the windmill, has admitted that wind is not a feasible energy source for power generation.
