Do you think that the gods ever have the same problem?

Dumb Comment  - 
 
Top tip

When someone calls you out on your dishonesty, don't go and double down on it. It makes you look like a complete douche nozzle.

She's not that much of a fan, but still literally willing to give up the booty for the boys. Atta Girl, smoke a couple of white owls while you're at it, they like that too!

Dipped below 100kg at my weigh in this morning. I've lost 1.2kg a week for the last three weeks. Not too shabby. That's 220lb in old money.

Making wine from Fruit  - 
 
Bullas wine

Ingredients

3kg bullace
2k sugar
juice of 2 lemons
10 litres water
2 tsp wine yeast nutrient
Yeast

Wash the bullace fruit thoroughly after removing all the stalks, leaves and bits of twigs from your Bullace. I use warm soapy water and rinse several times. There is no need to de-stone them.

Put into a deep pan and add half the water. Bring to boil and simmer for thirty minutes. Use a metal potato masher or wooden spoon to crush the plums as they cook. This will help extract all the juice from them.

Remove from heat and pass the liquid through a sieve to remove the solids. Use the back of a wooden spoon to press as much liquid out as possible.

Pour the liquid into your fermentation bucket and throw the solids away.

Add the rest of the water and the sugar to the pan and warm until all the sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon juice.

Make up yeast starter by adding yeast and a tsp of sugar to 250m of tepid water. Cover and leave for twenty minutes to activate the yeast.

Rack as normal.

A question for Christians: If Jesus died for our sins then why are there still sins?

+CheapPhilosophy We were talking about the text, which includes that narrative already. I don't need to justify the existence of that in the text. I think you are drifting off the topic at this point.

I didn't say God was not in control. I just objected to that particular non Biblical notion of God, or your recursive Jesus, or your penal substitution notion of some curse. I don't think they are in the text as much as they are in fundie doctrines. But again more off topic.

My point is that you assume a lot of other ideas in your proposition of what scripture says, and use the omni's like trump cards for reality. It is unhelpful.

What your drinking tonight  - 
 
I racked my Elderflower last night and had a little sip. It's very nice, a little too much lemon but it still has a pretty subtle flavour. The four gallons will sit for another month before secondary racking and then bottling. I'll have another taster next time and see about maybe adding some grape juice to balance the flavours a bit. I've actually got six of my seven demijohns on the go at once, four elderflower and two ginger wines.

I'll make up some IPA beer and some Spider Sweat at the weekend and take a trip to the dump for some more demijohns. I don't know why they have so many but at a quid each they're well worth picking up. The last two were caked in filth but cleaned up brilliantly. Soak in white vinegar and then clean with Bruclear. You wouldn't be able to pick them out of a line up now.

My very first batch of red wine from a kit is almost exhausted. I've got about a half dozen bottles left. It's alright but I prefer the stuff I make myself to the kits. For one they are a lot less hassle. For another I enjoy gathering up the ingredients.

What shall I make next after the Spider Sweat? Blackberries are due in a month or so, sloes and plums the month after. I'm considering making some oak leaf wine too. Any suggestions?

God believers, can you please provide the following:
1) a coherent definition of god,
2) a set of empirically testable and falsifiable predictions based on the supposition that god exists,
3) test results that match those predictions and are more parsimoniously explained by god's existence than any other hypothesis.

As you can't do this can you instead explain why you object to this request, why you think it's unfair, or why it is based on shaky ground.
 
Here you go, theists. In this video TMM explains what would convince him that #god exists. #skeptic #atheist #faith

+Brandon Petaccio​​​ you keep going with falsifiability not telling anything about the truth of a proposition, which at this point I'm no longer sure if it's a misunderstanding or a strawman.

Your issue with verifiable non unfalsifiable propositions is based on getting stuck on the idea that the test that falsifies such proposition must be practical, rather than conceptually existing at all.

Something that's deemed not falsifiable today for practical reasons can be falsifiable tomorrow, yet some propositions are unfalsifiable by definition, like Carl Sagan's "dragon in my garage". Or god (when defined as such, as it often is).

If you could, with a wave of your hand, make a single religion completely disappear, which one would you choose?

For the sake of argument the adherents will just switch to the next most similar religion rather than be eradicated or something like that. Also Islam is one religion, Christianity is one religion, Buddhism is one religion, etc rather than the tens of thousands of denominations, sects, cults, etc that we have today.

Except for being made of most of the King James Bible, reliant on the commandments, believing in heaven etc, church attendance on Sundays, having the sacrament, thinking Jesus is the way and so on and so forth.
You know, just little details...

Which is moot anyway, being as I specified Abrahamics.
