Karl Helweg replied to Daniel's discussion Fixed wing to helicopter in the group Pilots
"In my day we had USAF pilots in Army Flight School but they "graduated" about 2/3 through skipping night flying, NVGs, and tactics.  (The parts that improved my grade average.)  Advanced aircraft tracks, like Apaches, were…"

Michael Morris replied to Daniel's discussion Fixed wing to helicopter in the group Pilots
"Helo pilots in the AF start out in the T-6A. Pretty interesting choice, but very few people go on to fly helicopters. I'm not picky and will be very happy with whatever I get. The Texan is a hot rod, but quite a bit different than my little…"

"All good stuff. IRC the personality stuff doesn't count. At least not on the AF side. LASIK and PRK are disqualifying but are easily waiverable. I have LASIK. I'm currently going through pilot training at Vance AFB. Having a helicopter…"

Daniel replied to Will's discussion Changing your mind in the group The Great Debate
"Sure, I'll say that the Torah and the Koran are untrustworthy.  I don't need a different source to tell me about it, I just need the holy books themselves to say something about people floating up into the clouds or zombies crawling…"

Daniel replied to Steve Dallas's discussion Things that give discomfort over comfort in the group Gentlemen Atheists
"I also, like the theist, do not make the assumption that if God makes no difference then his nature makes no difference.  Lots of people make no assumptions about inconsequential non-claims, but it seems a bit dishonest to not mention the…"

"It seems to me that's what you are saying.   I'm saying a fake dad can still be a dad, if you believe he's your dad."

Daniel replied to Will's discussion Changing your mind in the group The Great Debate
"Well, you seemed to say that science leads to murder, not that science doesn't persuade people not to murder, as you are saying now, which is a subtle yet important shift of the goalpost.   I can't claim that science necessarily…"

"Thanks! To your comment, all you've done with your case of special pleading is invent a non-answer to unanswered questions (not conclusively unanswerable, BTW, you said yourself that some are testable and falsifiable, you choose faith…"

"To demonstrate that a question begged merits a faith based answer?"

"Even if God is an emergent property, one could still just have faith that he's the creator and his role in one's life would be just the same, no?"

Daniel replied to Steve Dallas's discussion Things that give discomfort over comfort in the group Gentlemen Atheists
"So why are you asking questions about where matter comes from?"

"The way you articulated that phenomenon makes me realize now that I saw the same thing through my entire church-going existence."

"One of those two ideas has answers that are testable and falsifiable, one of them doesn't."

Daniel replied to Will's discussion Changing your mind in the group The Great Debate
"I would counter that by arguing God leads to murder.  It removes morality, or limits on human actions, which we learned about from living with other humans through experience and through history (including prehistory as revealed through…"

Daniel replied to Steve Dallas's discussion Things that give discomfort over comfort in the group Gentlemen Atheists
"You can't have God be an active part in the affairs of man without believing him to be the cause of the big bang?  Does it make a difference to God's role in your life if he is an emergent property rather than the creator?"
