    A lot of schools don’t hand out the actual diplomas at the ceremony (too difficult to be sure the diplomas get to the named student). They just hand out identical ceremonial pieces of paper and send the actual diplomas separately.

    Is it really “googling” if you use a different search engine?

    There was also a camera that would take Viewmaster 3d photos. You would send in the film to be developed and put into a Viewmaster “reel”.

    Glad to see all those joining in on the fun with really clever names. Especially since pretty much every “official” list is just as made up.

    My dad knew that if he didn’t want to do a chore, he only needed to do it poorly to get my mom to take it over.

    “I think it’s pretty sad that you think we need to have a “creator” in order to have morals. Treat others the way you want to be treated works pretty well, and it doesn’t require any magical thinking”

    Works well only if followed, and many tyrants and evil people have done quite well without following it. In fact the concept you claim requires no “magical thinking” comes from religion. I defy you to derive it from some set of non-religious first principles. I would argue the only philosophies that can be entirely derived from a non-religious basis are hedonism and nihilism. Nietzsche was the philosopher who best understood the end result of pure atheism.

    astronomy, physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, zoology … say nothing about the purpose of the universe or it’s underlying origins. If you think they do, you are sadly mistaken. They only tell us the universe behaves and has behaved in the past.

    Stephan Hawking supposedly said we don’t need God because if you have gravity, everything else results. But he never enlightened us on where that “gravity” thing comes from. Science does not and can not determine the prime mover.

    Most of them made up by people trying to sound superior on the internet.

    I’m pretty sure most of them have been made up by internet trolls.
