        I found it interesting that at the 4:30 mark, Joe says, "Oh Christ" in a discussion trying to "debunk" Christianity.

            The bible was written by men, and there is the flaw. I wonder if the so
            called God some people believe in, is in fact the intelligence in the
            actual life force that rules life on this planet.
            Suppose the force we call life, with all the millions of different
            creatures and the things like DNA that are in fact just like computer
            programmes, is in fact the super intelligence that creates life. Not a
            God that humans think must resemble us, not a God that judges us and
            watches our every move, that is indeed ridiculous. But what if what we
            call a God is just the force of life intelligence. Now I could believe
            in that.

                I believe you are talking about the theory (the theory) of evolution not religion. You need way more faith to believe in evolution then in religion. Evolution claims everything came from nothing and has way to many holes for any sane person to believe in. At least Christianity has proven prophesies which evolutionist can't explain.

                                  @Greg Atheism is a lack of belief .. it wouldn't be possible for someone to claim they are killing in the name of Atheism. At most, you could say "I hate theism so no matter your religion, i'll kill you" but that still wouldn't be due to Atheism as Atheism is not a belief.


                                  The belief in 'your' God is not bullshit, the religion itself is what is bullshit. The believer is just gullible, stupid or just chooses to accept what they've been told because its a community wide thing and its much easier to follow the grain than to go against it.

                                  @Derek Gill He's not pessimistic, he's not being negative about anything. He just accepts reality and tries to squash bullshit beliefs because they are without a doubt a hindrance to us all, especially people who don't want any part of it who are forced and sometimes killed because of it.

                                      All of the evidence we have of the paranormal, but let's ignore that completely. Let's also completely ignore recent life after death case studies, indicating life after death. Let's also ignore the constants changing, indicating divine creation. Let's ignore anything and everything that is against your narrative. I never knew you were such a subjective, small minded thinker. Let the soulless accidents speak. It's obvious that neither of you have ever studied human anatomy or quantum physics.

                                        @Bucketheadhead, true. I just find it Interesting how he never mentions anything about the significance of quantum energy in microtubules in our brain.

                                        God is Energy, and I believe that he speaks to us through circumventricular organs (a very permeable microvasculature, unlike those in the rest of the brain where there exists a blood brain barrier), neuroendocrine functions, quantum energy in the microtubules in our brain, that are inside brain neurons, and this communication translates into the neurological and biochemical functions, namely, synapse and receptor functions, that are thoughts, feelings, imagery, symbology and numbers, and sometimes, words. Four areas of the brain are not protected by the blood-brain barrier. These areas include the posterior pituitary gland, pineal gland, the median eminence of the hypothalamus and the area postrema. It should come as no surprise that biophotons in the brain emit light as they work. This is all intelligent design. Of course, we can't forget Joe's favorite drug produced by the pineal gland, DMT.

                                        One of the most wondrous parts of our physical body is the Pineal Gland. The Pineal Gland develops in the human fetus around 21 days, responding to light and darkness. Even though it is hidden deep inside the brain, it has photoreceptor cells that bear a strong resemblance to the retinal cells of the eyes. It is also called the epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis, conarium or the “Third Eye.” It is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces serotonin and melatonin, hormones that affect mood and modulate our wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. That is also intelligent design.

                                        Our DNA is an intelligent design, not possible without an intelligent creator, especially considering how complex our body truly is that the odds we came from nothing is like one hundred trillion squared.

                                        He just doesn't mention anyting that does not support his theory. That's my main point. He seems very eager to disbelieve. The unknown far outweighs the known. We've only explored about 12% of our own ocean, so I just don't think we should be so quick to rule out divine creation. Darwinism under the microscope is a great book, backed by several scientist's work in proving divine creation.

                                        Zero evidence. Life after death studies can only be researched by the dead. Constants changing..? explain. You don't like your bullshit being questioned... it wouldn't be questioned if you would just bloody prove it. I mean, think about it.. we don't deny things that are proven, if you do you're a fucking idiot.

                                                              MY point of view on this is just that God decided to genocide everyone on earth with a flood because he didnt accept their lifestyle and wanted to begin anew.
                                                              And in the new testament he sent his son to be killed so he could sacrifice himself for the people ( he had to know, if he's omniscient).
                                                              I know there a many interpretations and you are free to believe any other, that's just my take. But my point was just that, yes, God kills his lambs in the Bible. For good or neferious reasons, but anyway I can't accept that from a Being suppose to be all good and powerful. Cheers tho

                                                              The definition of religion is pretty simple: "the belief in and/or worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods".

                                                                True homeopathy is probably placebo effect, or a lot of it anyway. But semi-poisonous herbs like the ones used in homeopathy do have medicinal value. Tobacco is a common semipoisonous herb that has powerful medicinal value and is used by many people who are self-medicating.

                                                                But the idea that religion creates a placebo effect is BS. We are clearly designed to seek the true God and have religion.

It’s my dream to be on your show one day and just drop knowledge no one has yet ...but everything this man is saying is the life I lived when I was 18 it’s insane , and false in such a way light and dark are 2 but they both can equal one set , but in our morality of good one is a obvious better choice then the other so one can choose to hold his breath until he passes out it doesn’t mean it’s any good for you or correct so this man is false , you better have a Christian viewer on to redeem yourself this is pc culture bitch all is aloud !
