no, cause and effect. if they continue to be random and dont last because of it, they wont last. order remains ordered and survives due to that order. be it a plant or an atom. consistancy breeds consistancy, the random noise stops total consistancy from ever fully forming. this is just logic as standard. the rest stems from that.

Am i "content"? i didnt really think my feelings entered the equation.

Yes, and that is ruled by natural laws. And that's the difference between wisdom and intelligence. Wisdom is knowing that all is ruled by natural laws while intelligence is the illusion of knowing anything based upon flawed systems of human thought.

intelligence is defined by questions. An intellect is yet to know..
wisdom is defined through answers. knowledge from a past intellect.

you seem to think they have no relation. the youth have all the intellect yet lack the knowledge. the requirement is less as we age.

for these systems to come into place you seem to consider that a god or some intelligence is out there. You have no evidence to suggest this, just a hunch. The trick to outwit such scientific principles as evidence requirements is to rubbish the scientific process.

The problem with such a theory is once again, not sustained with the body of evidence. but its not what you "want" to hear.

This is the most crucial point. what if you actually discovered the meaning of life? would you even know you had? would you like it?

you wish to make a cause of the effect, rather than see that they feed back on each other in a string of effects that cause new or repeated effects. what stays needs to have a principle of survival in the current conditions. if you understand any principles of Senescence you can maybe get a gauge on how evolution has many different elements tugging at it. these are the factors that create these supposed decisions.

Excuse me!!!! Check your reflexes rsol. The whole event is intelligence.

Check your own reflexes.

The effect of GRAVITY upon an expanding cloud of hot hydrogen was to produce stars and planets.

Isn't THAT a case where "events proceed from chaos to ever more orderly states"?

Wasn't it "by accident"?

ROFL.

Seems Futurama is taking a poke at scientific objectivism which seems to have be making it's way into the mainstream scientific community for the past century at an accelerating rate, textbooks are presenting theory as fact and since fact forms policy, thus directs action it gets the same thing done as religion had set out to do from the non-philosophical standpoint in forming ideology based on hypothesis.

I am curious as to whether the above mis-spelling isn't a general sign of dementia in conspiracy theorists.

"It's" is a shortening of "it is", whereas "its" is the genitive of "it".

All very simple. But apparently too difficult for some, in perpetuity.

Oh. And the previous is an ironic and hypocritical slander. But the hypocrisy's wearing thin and the irony faded from too much exposure to sunlight.

The bartender leaned forward and whispered "We don't serve neutrinos here". A neutrino stepped up to a bar.

So now the universe is in accelerated expansion! Oh the joy of knowledge!

Why not throw in some expanding planets into the mix?
