Goodbye forever...
I dare you Summer and Deschain, to find where I am hiding, and try to attack.

Yeah. Btw, soon you will have a reply on the "religion-politics: Iraqi crisis" thread. Just been busy lately. Catch you later. Sweet lucid dreams full of deities! B-)

I like this bet because if I'm right you have me reminding you how wrong you were for eternity, if I'm wrong well it's a shallow victory for you. :lol:

Unlike Summerland, for me, it is more of a coveted desire, not a belief.
I have issues like I said earlier that I don't want to be stuck with for eternity.
You are lucky, you may not deal with things in life that literally do make you want to escape to your Lucid Dreams and Multimedia Designs, but even then, that isn't enough.

I have real issues I deal with. You think I want to be stuck doing this for eternity, think again. I feel guilty enough when these things happen in reality, and I don't want eternal guilt on my shoulders:
Yes sometimes because of my mood swings I can literally be like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Lcck2lJHLg or like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NPc08-BWvg (this mood swing causes me to have insomnia) If I have certain mood swings I can sometimes act like a complete jerk, which when I realize I am, I feel really bad about it.



Well, I do understand your reasoning on this. I actually know who your polar bear is.... :oops:

Well, if I'm wrong I'm wrong. But I doubt I am. For me it isn't about victories. It is more about staying on the side of what is evident, factual, and true.

I cannot readily believe in something for which there is no evidence.

I might believe you believe in theories that conform to a pre existing set of standards you have. Outside that set of standards are monsters and just like the numerical monsters are hard to accept in our real world.

When the results of certain computer calculations are shown to be not simply incorrect but dramatically incorrect, we have a powerful reason to be cautious about all computer-based calculations. In this paper we present a "Rogue's Gallery" of simple calculations whose correct solutions are obvious to humans but whose numerical solutions are incorrect in pathological ways. We call these calculations, which can be guaranteed to wreak numerical mayhem across both software packages and hardware platforms, "Numerical Monsters". Our monsters can be used to provide deep insights into how computer calculations fail, and we use them to engender appreciation for the subject of numerical analysis in our students. Although these monsters are based on well-understood numerical pathologies, even experienced numerical analysts will surprises in their behavior and can use the lessons they bring to become even better masters of their tools.

LOL! Buildit, rather than focusing on non-sequitur pseudo-analogies, ponder more on your Carl Sagan quote. :mrgreen:

I have and decided my life is too short to make decisions on what to ignore just because it doesn't fit my world view.
