    Densmin here.

    Regrettably, I do not have the scientific knowledge base many of you seasoned Science Forum veterans do. On all specific technologies, theories, and theologies, I must defer to your expertise.

    However, I can't say I'm completely without knowledge of such matters. I have just enough to get me in trouble :wink:

    My religious views are Agnostic. I don't know many people whom profess this as their belief. For those that don't know, Agnostic is the belief there may be a higher power (God) but without proof, there is no way to be truly religious or aethiest (When speaking with a religious person I'm apt to acknowledge that faith is believing without proof, at this point in the explanation. However, in this sense, faith seems the folly of fools. I cannot be a sheep.)

    I use simplistic common sense logic to analyze ideas and concepts, as I believe the best way to analyze something is to take it down to it's simplest form.

    I have many questions of how the universe works; Many mental models I've constructed with the limited info I have. Reading through some of the threads it seems some of you have come up with the same models and questions I have. There's certainly some intriguing ideas in this forum and I look forward to sharing such ideas and discussions with all of you.

    Thank you for allowing me to voice such ideas.

    Welcome to the Forum, Have a nice-stay!

    Yes, I can see the considerable difficulty in choosing between A singularity and a deity.

    Although some work or have worked in the sphere of science you will quickly find a wide range of knowledge and opinions here.

    If there is anything you really need to know or is important I would suggest you check it out off-line perhaps in a library or at a place of learning. Forums will often contain conflicting and sometimes confusing views. Sites such as Wikipaedia are useful to gain a foothold BUT they too, can also be innacurate. I will say though of the several science forums I have subscribed this one has so far proven the most useful.

    There are certainly many here who can point you in the right direction for the knowledge you seek.

    Finally it will gain you more qudos to sprinkle liberally your views with phrases like "I interpreted Einstein as saying.." Rather than "Einstein said..". Also "I believe" is a good one as you are then not stating a fact (which may bring an instant challenge) - but expressing an opinion which may run contrary to knowledge you are unaware of. We don't always talk about Einstein there are others....

    These are my personal views only, you are free to ignore them as you are free to ignore the ten commandments 8)

    I suspect you might enjoy the intellectual company of Ophielite as well as everybody else.

    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy
