Tom, does the science teacher mention anything about my belief that the
Universe is a computer?
Seriously, it deserves a mention...
If you doubt my seriousness, you might find Ed Fredkin interesting
reading, assuming you are intelligent enough to read complex digital
philosophy, and young enough to stay awake through a well written, long
article. I read it 22 years ago when I was sitting at my desk at work,
wasting time instead of working... I ain't reading it again, can't stay
awake, but I wonder how it's stood the test of time... Computers and the
digital highway have proliferated and broadened a bit some since 1988...
If nothing else, after reading it, you can usually get interesting
affects when you interrupt god/no god arguments with your believe that
god is a computer.... The only thing I remember about the article
though is that the Universe is a computer... 22 years can do that...
Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

These guys most certainly ripped off my guy, who predates them by a good
Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
...*read* the post, Steve...key word, "anecdotal"...I have no reason
to lie, the people I run with are not, on average, theists..., and I
don't search out the other POV. I think that is the case with most
people, "birds of a feather" and all that...it's easy to spout
statistics on a newsgroup (where *feelings* run rampant); it's harder
to consciously question one's sources...more like work.
Then chalk my remarks as 'anecdotal." No big deal -- merely pointing
out that I have had real face-to-face communications with said
I recognize a creation myth when I stumble over it, and dont' find any
contradiction in believing in both a God (or godhead) and evolution. In
fact a god who can be amused by setting things in motion and seeing
what happens later is a whole lot more interesting than a god who says
"BAM!" and walks away, satified.
