Quote# 60430

*discussing an article in the Independent about the biological underpinnings of religious faith and how the "god spot" evolved in the brain*

The existence of that spot is more proof of an intelligent creator

It's like a remote control car with an antenna to receive the signal. A rock doesn't have an antenna to receive no signal.

So that's what the G in "G-spot" stands for! [/immaturity]

Please, also tell us how schizophrenia is proof of prophecy. I would love to hear it.

So how come people across the world believe in incredibly different gods, as opposed to the same god, as would be expected if there was one god and he was sending these messages down to us directly into our brains?

So, my industrial-strength sex-drive, which also has a provable physiological basis, is proof that God wants me to have wild circus sex all beautiful women?

By your grammar, I can deduce your name is Cletus and your parents are brother and sister.

Ooh, so the designer is like the some of the members of the electronics/computer industry these days. You know, products that *scream* their maker's name at every opportunity (so that you can't forget whose crud has been foisted upon you this time), products that "call home" and spy on the users, products that always raise anger and bile toward the companies that built them among the users by reminding them of their existence in the most painful way imaginable ("Damn you, Microsoft!") and run out of warranty at the most inconvenient time, which doesn't matter anyway, because the warranty terms are incomprehensible and there's always some buried clause that's going to get you.

Glad that there are manufacturers that don't get so greedy and pushy and egoistic - they just make good stuff and hope we enjoy their products. And we do.

A what?

There have been occasional comments that just blind me with their sheer lack of power in the analogies. This is one of them. I have nothing else to say.

Actually, if it were valid as a proof it would be the only proof of an intelligent creator. As it is, however, it just sort of floats around like a turd in a punch bowl.

That last sentence makes my head spin.

Poe or not, I'm glad that God Spot has resurfaced.

It's a pity there are no good online images for the concept of "ANALOGY FAIL".

"A rock doesn't have an antenna to receive no signal."

Classic, a first-grader mistake.
Now go sit in the corner and face the wall until it's your turn to be stupid again.

Biology 101: the brain isn't a radio reciever. It's a fucking processor. And the fact that it has a "god spot" is just more proof that god exists only in your brain.

a rock has what's called an intrinsic impedance, (intrinsic... i think that's the right word...). this means that given the right frequency, the rock can receive a signal.
this of course, is definite proof that the great ninja, Hiroku, created all rocks on earth with given impedances in order to use them to communicate with other ninjas via gamma-ray signals.

The existence of that spot is more proof of an intelligent creator - He is not intelligent if he keeps sending mixed/confusing signals.

It's like a remote control car with an antenna to receive the signal. - That would mean he is controlling all our lives.

So you DOUBLE FAIL.

should we tell him we found out what that gland actually does, or should we let him keep going for our amussment? I'm up for either.

You and your post are proof there is no intelligent creator.

You make a moderately good point. That's one plausible hypothesis. However, if we can both see on cat-scans irrefutable evidence that the 'God Spot' lights up more for Buddhists than for any other group, you must either accept them as the one true faith, or consider your remote control hypothesis disproven. I can't give you a link for that, it was a TV show.
Do you dare check that for yourself?

"Don't even tell me about the G spot,I gave enough problems just getting past the f-stop.

Interesting question - is the god spot anywhere in the vincity of parts of the brain we use to lie or imagine?

I just read the article, it failed to mention where specifically the regions were, most people commenting assumed it was in areas used for imagination.

G-spot = God Spot? Goesto, you naughty little Christian! Although when teased and massaged just so, I can see why - the pleasure is divine.
