Saying an argument is "grasping at straws" does not prove it wrong. Also math does not have to be the God that the Hebrew bible said it to be. In fact it isn't...

Some people see "god" in everything. You, apparently, are one of those people.
I am not. Furthermore, I cannot comprehend your math/god correlation, because it just makes no sense to me.

You can believe what you want.

But that's the whole point of this thread....that some people just give 'god' credit for every frickin thing, and rely on 'him' to do for them, when they've got a perfectly good evolved brain to use to solve problems.

Wrong! The most worshipful activity for me is to actually employ math and science in my thinking. In fact, thinking is a great virtue in my beliefs, because it leads to math. For me, relying on "math" means solving a math problem using my head, pencil and paper, or a computer in order to find the solution. It works really well with my financials.

Also, where people currently do not comprehend the workings of math yet, I try to use critical and logical thinking, since it led to math and many other discoveries. How does the way you and I use our evolved brains to solve problems differ, other than our fundamental belief?

Since I only discovered this truth yesterday while contemplating math while going to math class in UMCP, I am not grasping at straws.. I'm realizing a lot of this as I go along. Before then I was of ignostic belief.

If I say I had a very large cup of coffee after not having any caffeine for a long time when I discovered the truth, would that make me even less credible?

I'm actually kind of starting to lose faith..and less than a day passed since I got the idea that math was god...

yeah, I've had lots of revelations after doing drugs. But they don't usually make much sense in the morning.
Are you in College Park?

No free car, dys. But if you ever make it to Seattle, how about a free coffee?

English is my worst subject, it is the only subject I have ever gotten a C for the year in High School. So.. sorry, no. Although I do respect if you are an English major yourself. What happens to people when they become sophomores though?

Just kidding you! Computer Science is what I would consider an excellent subject. Watch out for programming language though. Missing even a comma, let alone improper spelling, can cause a lot of trouble.

Quite true in my case.

I'm just an ignorant clod from New Jersey and my opinions are not worth the broom spent sweeping them into the trash.

Even though I am usually right. :wink:

I appreciate your humility, I think. I hope all the wonderful folks here will put up with me until I learn more of that myself.

Saints go to heaven. I hope to live here on earth forever.
