bummer

Posted by rmwjr on December 19th, 2014

went to phoenix to pickup auction load
had mortar mixer to take up for someone who came but it didnt fit in his truck
had metal for the roof and nice golf cart lined up to see.
he cancelled the stuff was sold. ugh.
then i went to get titles, 88$ in penalties for not getting it done in 15 days.
more govt crap. i paid more to register the trailer for one year than i did to buy it.
$125 vs $105. fees should be capped at 25% of value of vehicle.

A policeman sees a drunk man searching for something under a streetlight and asks what the drunk has lost. He says he lost his keys and they both look under the streetlight together. After a few minutes the policeman asks if he is sure he lost them here, and the drunk replies, no, and that he lost them in the park. The policeman asks why he is searching here, and the drunk replies, “this is where the light is.”

re: True beliefs are very unlikely to be necessary and/or efficient for survival. … the ability to accurately model the world around you is of great survival value. in fact look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases many of these are anchored in their survival valve. one of my favorites is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loss_aversion which like many of our mental illusions is based in the fact that death and great loss are very serious problems but the flip side, false positives for danger simply release a bit of adrenaline. the penalty for missing the lion is the grass is disproportionately greater than seeing a lion when there isn’t one. but in any case, accurate beliefs are necessary for survival, the question is if there is a positive feedback increasing the accuracy over time. given the depth of our mental illusions i suspect close is good enough. so that more true beliefs are of survival value over less true beliefs, but the difference between them must be pretty large to be detected by natural selection over time.

i think you are on the right track on how to deal with YEC selective literalism. the OT writers had no idea of either the size or age of the universe. the 3 storey model. earth in the middle, hell under our feet and heaven just outside the rather nearby firmament permeates the Scriptures from Gen 1 to the 2nd coming where all people can see Jesus’ return. like the 3 temptations and the ascension only makes sense in a flat earth model. by concentrating on the size of their ancient model via the firmament you show that this immense universe was not in their minds in any way. its just a small step to see that the age is a parallel argument.

http://blogs.answersingenesis.org/blogs/ken-ham/2014/12/06/the-templeton-connection/

http://www.livescience.com/48990-time-always-marches-forward-why.html

it’s about about how communities build and use models of the physical universe while doing their theology. YECs have a model that does not stretch to accommodate the modern scientific notions of the age of the universe. but at the same time it has been able to stretch to allow the immense universe mankind has discovered. why?

re: I choose to believe God rather than the word of man. ….. no,you choose to believe a particular community’s interpretation of Scripture. this is as much the work of men as is science. your theology is built on the words of human beings talking about Scripture, telling you what it means and how to read it. this gambit is a favorite of KH/AiG. unless you are in direct communication with God you are a product of a Biblical interpretative community, often a church but not necessarily so. it is only because YEC are historically myopic that you do not realize that your communities interpretation has been changing due to the work of individuals over the years. . “I choose to believe God rather than the word of man” is far better said as “i chose to believe what i’ve been taught by men about what the Bible says over what over men have said they have discovered about the universe”
