    Matt Ryan above Romo? Yea, I don't know about that.

    Lionel, I think this is far better statistical theory and methodology than your earlier threads and attempts, but I would contend that you're still shy of the mark.

    (1) I think your volume factor...

    Huh? You've got your math wrong. Medians negate outliers. Averages are skewed by outliers. Not the other way around (your claim). We could always discuss whether average or median is better, but you...

    I will give a look at your specific arguments in a couple days. I still have to give Jej and tnewkirk, and Valade my thought process and reasons for (as well as definition of) my "belief".

    For now...

    There is almost a massive sigh of relief that I chose to move to Australia and pursue my interests and career in specialty cocktails and bar management instead of a PhD. Now I can't become a...

    Not my immediate family, no.

    My mother isn't much of an intellectual, though she is very smart. She regularly tells me she doesn't understand most of what my dad and I talk about, all she cares...

    This was a very fun, and very frustrating exercise. Holy crap. Here we go.

    Staff:
    HC - Bill Bellicheck - Patriots

    Youre, again, ignoring history and context into the definition of "default". People are not blank slates. People's default positions on any number of issues is determined by context. There is no way...

    While potentially you could say that I believe in "the [same God my] parents told [me] to believe in," in that I confess the creeds of the Christian Church. However, my beliefs about that God, those...

    I'm an analytical thinker to the core, almost to a fault. I understand evolution is true (this is not a "belief"). I also believe in God, as an analytical thinker.

    Well, are you asking a general idea, or are you asking what Genesis 1:27 intends to communicate in the Hebrew Bible?

    Both would be correct there. The general reality of belief in one or more gods includes the variegated forms... :shrug:

    Belief in god(s) originated, at some point, and that belief remains.
  19. I'm probably not qualified to decide what the...

    I'm probably not qualified to decide what the "greatest" is. I, again, don't think I'm right about rverything, or that my view is the only correct one. You know, for the 100th time.

    Now, I will...

    Actually, that's untrue. I generally try to contribute to the topic of the yhread/OP.

    You, on the other hand, turn every single thread into an argument of "there is no proof!!!", and then ,after...

    That God was "other" is central to the Hebrew understanding of "holiness", which is the central theological claim of ancient Israelite religion. That...

    I guess my question to you Jej, is this:

    What do you hope and/or believe yourself to be accomplishing by repeating the same argumentative line a million times for a year, never engaging critically...

    Just because a large percentage of people come to a belief through unreasonable means does not mean that the only way to come to that conclusion is through unreasonable means. Nor, that the belief...
