Hello Everybody !!

University of Oxford researchers are to spend $2 m. in a 3 year programme to determine why mankind believe in God. Faith in God is universal human impulse found in most cultures, though it has been waning in western Europe.
Thanks.

The God Part Of The Brain and The God Gene are selling very well here in the US. I have not read either.

I sense bot at the head of the thread
But The Bot Is Not Trying To Sell Anything - It Is Very Very Confusing :confused::confused: Well Bot Or No Bot - Is It True? Will That Much Money Be Spent On This??
 
I've really been back and forth on deleting this person's posts. They don't have any commerical content or link, so I can't do it for those reasons. On the other hand, they don't make a lot of sense, either.

If you check the IP, you'll probably find they are located in India, etc. The only thing that I can figure is that they embed membership and posts into a forum, and then introduce keywords and links later to improve their google ranking.

Or it's just someone without a front lobe that likes to talk about mostly nothing. :D

$2M! That's really cheap, a bargain if you ask me. A majority of the world particle physicists are looking for the so-called "God particle" (at least that's what Leon Lederman chose to name it in a best?-seller book) in multi-billion $ machines such as the Tevatron and the LHC.

This God particle, also named Higgs particle, was first proposed by Englert and Brout and wikipedia can tell you more about it. (Higgs, Englert and Brout are physicists)

God is a much shorter name that a trinity of names like Englert-Brout-Higgs and also more economical than father-son-holy spirit.

So, in a few years we will know if the God particle exists, if it is unique or a composite of several entities, or maybe does not exist at all, in which case Leon Lederman will no doubt want to replace it with an atheist particle of sorts.

If you read this far you have only yourself to blame.

Well they spend money researching other forms of mental illnesses why should this field be any different. Maybe they will develop a new medication to cure this form of delusion.

As Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) put it:"Man is the Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion..... several of them."
- "The Lowest Animal," 1897
Of course he also said "Oh, this infernal Human Race! I wish I had it in the Ark again--with an auger!" , so he may have just be bitter!

Susan, I was being sarcastic, when i saw that in the forum i first laughed my head off and secondly thought how stupid would someone be to start a thread up about that stuff. It was a joke. Don't get your knickers in a not.

No problem, I don't take things here that seriously.

But remember: Big Sister is watching! ;)

I would suggest if someone is starting a thread and they don't respond to comments within that thread within 12-24 hours it should be considered eligible for removal at the whim of the moderators. Especially in the general topic thread since it is for anything non cycling.

Properly Translated...

This was supposed to read...

"Hello Everyone,

University of Oxford researchers are to spend $2 m. in a 3 year programme to determine why mankind believe in Going Odd (GOD). Faith in GOD is a universal human impulse found in most cultures, though it has been waning in western Europe with the introduction of the EU amendment proposal 2.113.445.a.1.2.3.4 restricting practice of Oddness and thus proliferating GOD-ness."

Sorry 'bout that......

Looks like s/he is fishing for opinions as research for the study, ie a return on the $2M investment. Commercial enough for me. Spam too.
