    What are the strongest secular arguments against materialism and evolution?

    Evolution, in the atom-to-human sense (not to be confused with simple genetic variation, which is confined to syngameons [kinds], and goes nowhere): >Is not scientific since it has never been observed or experimentally proven. >Is not logical, nor can it be true, since it violates several...

    How fraud is being used to prop up COVID-19 hysteria and irrationality.

    A telltale sign that a belief is on flimsy ground is the use of fraud to prop it up. C19 has been popularized as a highly lethal disease requiring shutting down entire economies, locking people in their homes, and gloving and masking everyone in order to, ostensibly, contain it. If that is...

    How to defeat materialists with their own matter and laws.

    Thanks, that is true. However, free will cannot be equated with randomness. Atoms behave randomly at one level, and obey absolute natural laws at another level. Neither of these behaviors can be equated with free will.

Materialists would...

It's always wise to question popular opinion or hyped information from the media, government, or medical bureaucrats. This is what looking deeper into face masks reveals: >Face masks are not proven to reduce...

    Matthew Alper, Have Skeptics Lost Their Edge? |448|

    Agreed, but the arguments I presented on Quora are intended to show that materialists are defeated with their own preconceived bias. They argue materialistic science proves abiogenesis and evolution, but science, in fact, defeats them. That might cause them pause to consider the consciousness stuff.

    Matthew Alper, Have Skeptics Lost Their Edge? |448|

    Alper's strong and immovable beliefs are due to his confidence in materialism. That confidence is justified by his antecedent belief that abiogenesis and evolution are scientifically validated. Alex's frustration with him for ignoring consciousness and NDE evidence is due to this fact. If...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    No, but I am opposed to its use in the population unless: >Rigorous properly controlled long-term controlled safety studies have been performed. >All ingredients are completely identified. >Contraindications and side effects are completely identified. >Manufacturers are liable for damages. >It...
