is it trying to tell people how smart he is or just trying to show us another way?

As far as just comparing education levels, here is a ranking from 2014 comparing amongst the various denominations. They have atheist and agnostic listed there as well.

that makes sense. higher educated people understand difference between describing the system we are in as possibly "alive" and calling it "god."

Thats why believers in something will always out number people that deny everything because they feel religion is so dangerous.

you might want to actually answer the question.

I don't do zen type thinking past playing some games with it. we reach a point where you, the zen thinker, has to put in an actual observation to solve the equation.

other wise you are just adding noise. I just haven't figured out what your intent is yet.

Do you really think adults over 50/60 are hoping to educate other adults over age 50/60 years?

Instead learning what's all out there some people want to be self-appointed gurus or self-appointed internet geniuses.


Your post are not as clear as you may think, so there's no need to get all high and mighty on your hobby horse.


You haven't figured out my intent? Are you interviewing yourself to police the internet?

we are not talking about what happens, we are talking about putting out information, with honest intent, for other people to use.

you are saying some people are here to show us how smart they they are because you feel you can't change adults.

so, what one is more logical?

oh yeah, so long as you see a hobby horse, that means you are still in the romper room. so that is what it is.

grab ... you running away from the question. stay focused and put what you preach to the test.

you said a person was here to show how smart they are.

I asked you if they could be posting just to try and show people another way?

You implied that adults wont change.

my question still stands.

are they here to just show how smart they are or is it possible they are here to teach onther way.

no, I don't post to the science forum, i learn from the science forum. . everything I say is in college science textbooks.

you should be down too. all this spiritual stuff based on personal opinion is why we are in this mess. at some point you have to make it work gabfest. you have to make it work with what we actually have, not what you wish it was.

out law science, that way a less valid, anti-god and my-god-only claim can be use to deceive people.

1 Corinthians 18-31:

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
