BBC... again

There are many puzzles that remain about the Hobbit. The female skeleton was 1m (3ft) high and was a very primitive form of human. Her brain was about the size of a chimpanzee, yet there is evidence that she used stone tools.

Re: Higgs Boson

I guess that is going to upset the belief system of a good many atheists, rather like the Big Bang did.

Did the Big Bang upset the belief system of atheists? Sure, it gave them an additional component to believe based on evidence but [more]

Re: Letters of Resignation

I've decided to read the Oxford English Dictionary from start to finish.

Reading it backwards but missing out large chunks of it? Weird!

Re: Education

First any religion that says that should you leave your religion the penalty is death, and which says another religion is not to be tolerated, is not going to accept valuing other religions.

Re: refrigerator

Just noticed this morning that the refrigerator has “Hotpoint” emblazoned on the door.

My parents have a Hotpoint fridge and freezer. They also have a shower made by Triton. I'm not sure if it's named after the god of the sea or the [more]

Re: Cox and the multiverse

I think that is what makes this particular question different. It is hard to see how it could be either proven or found to be wrong.

Re: Cox and the multiverse

However, if he is saying that he believes that a multiverse actually exists, then isn't this an example of a scientist believing something about science for which there is no evidence?

Re: Much the same

My understanding is that flammable was introduced because some people thought inflammable was a negative.

I think you're right but they are wrong. People wrongly thought (and some still do) that inflammable means not flammable but [more]

Re: Much the same

A bit like to 'pre-order' something that is not yet available.

Worse is "pre-warn". Is one really likely to post-warn?

Re: The Warrington Guardian

One that I noticed was that you didn't show where you omitted some of the quotation. It therefore appears that the quotation marks hadn't been closed when in fact the following paragraph was a continuation of the quotation.

Re: The devil

I was assuming you were an atheist.

You're doing it again.

No, there was no time before the big bang.

This has been explained to you (with a quotation from Stephen Hawking) on a previous thread. Time in our universe began when the universe did.

As to evidence, the atheist who came up with the uncaused universe, could find no evidence of anything, so here is the "no evidence" you requested.
