In a message dated 99-02-25 00:16:28 EST, you write:

<< laws of physics (or at least approximations thereof) in this case makes no sense. What I believe Jason is saying is that no one has given any good reason for an extropian to waste his time and take the effort to cultivate theology memes. Obviously, the extropian wants to be efficient, and to have a sound memeset. What would be the purpose of introducing the concept of a god? What purpose does it serve? Believing in F=MA is very useful for the average extropian, myself included. I also feel it is important to know that E=MC^2.

What is the utility served by theology in an extropian context?

Well Aaron, you've managed to restate Jason's case without adding anything; except for the odd questioning of the accuracy of my perfectly adequate expression of basic physical laws ("or at least approximations thereof").

What's with that? Is this affectation part of your "sound memeset"?

The question you ignored remains...

I assert that God is an inevitable unescapable product of a technological civilization that lasts long enough! Can you prove me wrong?
