Good sir![edit]

Please accept this sysopship. Best kind they make. Blue (is useful) 23:27, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

My thanks... I am not sure if I want deserve this responsibility, but nonetheless, thank you. - Gameboy (talk) 23:49, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

It matters not whether you want deserve this honor, but it eliminates those pesky red exclamation points. You've done well enough for us to ignore periodically check your edits to make sure you are on the up and up. Welcome to the fray. Aboriginal Noise Punkrock 01:11, 15 February 2011 (UTC)


Hi. Could you tell me why you reverted that edit by an IP on the debate page? It was a bit odd, but being odd is not usually cause for a talk page reversion, but maybe I missed something. Cheers. --BobSpring is sprung! 18:20, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

I've undone your revision. We don't usually delete comments unless there is a very good reason such as confidentiality or racism. Cheers. --BobSpring is sprung! 18:33, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Alright, I'll keep hat in mind. It was just... obviously (to me) irrelevant and out of context. I will not do something like that next time (or at least, I'll ask or something.) - Gameboy (talk) 21:43, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
OK. The stuff which can be deleted is here. The important bit on what can be deleted is:
  • Articles and redirects made by vandals whose sole purpose is obscenity and/or personal attack.
  • Edits adding personal information about someone (e.g. phone number, address, place of work, real name(s), etc.) not volunteered by that person. In these cases the first sysop to come across the information should immediately "hide" the relevant edit; see the sysop guide.
But no harm done. :-) --BobSpring is sprung! 21:57, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

About the beginning of our universe (and its possible end too)[edit]

For some it is a religious issue unless one knows how it began. I accidentally found that it never began. Which makes sense if we assume that nothing can be made of nothing. It was also an opinion of Carl Sagan, whom I've seen on TV saying that. So it turned out that Carl Sagan was right. I could prove it mathematically with simple Newtonian math and Einstein's relativity. Astrophysicists simply never did their homework and left the job to three creationists who wrote a 5 lb. book supporting the idea of creation, creating at least seven artifacts that I desribe in my essay Gravitation demystified. Now I'm looking for someone who could find in it at least one factual error.

I'm writing to you since you mantioned that there is no need for anti-theism. I'd like to show you that certain things in human culture might indicate that for humans might be safer not to repeat the same errors too many times. Now we have an H-bomb with which the whole planet can be easily destoyed. Which might be OK if this is your purpose. Most humans, and me among them, would object to such plans though so we have no other choice as to become anti-theists. And as Einstein said, "there are two things infinite, and since the human stupidity is one of them" it is not that important which is the other (my addition to Einstein's quote).

Flight from Death the Quest for Immortality / the works of Dr. Becker[edit]

You are missing a main topic why theism is harmful. Theists who share the death defying illusion become intolerant of dissimilar others when reminded of their own mortality. If you do not share their illusion of eternal life, you become a target for annihilation. The death defying delusion is the cornerstone for their cognitive dissidence.

I praise the hard work of Russians from the last century for their contribution to humanity. (Exterminating theists)

If you've never seen "Flight from Death, the Quest for Immortality" it's a great documentary. Based off the work of Dr Ernest Becker, the Pulitzer prize winner in 1974 for his book "Denial of Death". For years I wondered why theists are so intent on killing each other, now I know why, and the reasons are based on scientific research.
