Science does not know how life came from non-life. There is nowhere in serious scientific literature a statement of the sort “life does not come from non-life.”

The Avast blog entry linked above names one app they say is malware, but the entry also promotes their premium paid software as detecting these apps. I had Avast’s free version on my phone but removed it because it started putting up annoying pop-ups of its own. This is nothing against Avast, just a personal preference.

We should not anthropomorphize computers. An advanced AI will not have an intelligence shaped by the millions of years of evolution that shaped our brains and thought processes, growing as they did from our having evolved in a violent environment of scarce resources. Unless we build such into it, it will therefore lack the survival instinct built into us. Of course, we should always have an overriding “off” switch just in case.
A survival reflex can be programmed, conscience is what makes us human.

Hey BBC, “lone wolf?” How about “cult of death?” These monsters may act alone but they are in concert with preachers of hatred who reach out to them in many ways.

“which the Obama administration has made a hefty investment in ” — why is TheBlaze using the left’s distorted definitions of words?
Say what it really is — It’s not “investment,” it’s redistribution of wealth, wasting our hard-earned tax dollars on technology the market hasn’t accepted as mainstream. Central planning can’t anticipate markets.

Fast and Furious — When will justice be served on Eric (the Red) Holder?

Mr Chopra doesn’t know anyone else’s thought process that goes into either belief or non-belief in a deity, therefore characterizing anyone as “not having grown” for being an atheist is nonsense. I have no problem with either Chopra or Dawkins expressing his beliefs provided neither characterizes people who disagree with him disparagingly.

Isn’t it fun to see an arrogant liar exposed when he tells the truth? The Dimocrats dug themselves a hole with their lies, and it’s going to keep getting deeper and deeper and deeper.

One can bet that the un-president’s idea of “what will work” won’t match up with anything suggested by a Republican. He’s said much the same before, but nothing he says is meaningful, look at what he’s done.

Trey Gowdy would be a fine AG based on his investigation handling. The un-president will pick another radical leftist who will block the investigation of all the corruption we have seen.

Eric the Red should be in jail where he can kiss the warden’s a**.

For a civil society to exist, good and evil must be defined and judged. The Judeo-Christian system of morals is the best of many that have been used through the centuries. A moral system does not require a deity to exist and be employed, just as the fundamental rights defined in the US Declaration of Independence can be considered birthrights separate from either a deity or the government. I will also note regarding Mr Krauss’ comments about one generation, over the past 90 years communist governments tried unsuccessfully for several generations to eliminate religion.
In American, people are judged and sentanced based on our secular legal system, not Christian sharia law ..
Religion should absolutely not be eradicated by force. It should be allowed to die a natural death of its own accord.

Mr Beck is welcome to his belief. I don’t share it regarding voting. Yes, there are some bad Republican candidates. On the other hand, the Dimocrat party has gone way beyond bad and poisoned its image with all the lies and corruption that have surfaced over the past six years. I cannot imagine voting for anyone wearing the D label; they’re all guilty by association. Put another way, any person of honesty and integrity would remove himself or herself from a group with such corrupt and mendacious leadership.
I have many Demo friends. They still believe the Dem Party is the same party of Kennedys time. They can not understand they have been taken over by Progressive/socialist/ communists. They believe their party is the party for the poor, underdog. They can not understand that their party is the party of no. No morals, no God, no rights, no America. But yes to killing babies, destroying our country, the NWO, and taking from the workers and giving to the "I refuse to workers" etc. There are many wonderful people who are Dems. unfortunately they are totally brain washed.

Pretty obvious that Orman is a Dim in independent’s clothing when the Dimocrats pulled their own candidate in favor of him. Perhaps they realized it was too late or infeasible for the Dim candidate to stay in but start calling himself a libertarian.

People from multiple races belong to the Muslim religion, thus it’s nonsensical to call someone who disagrees with Islamic political ideology “racist.” It also is not bigotry to be against an Islamist who threatens to kill anyone who does not accept Islam. The Islamists in this regard are no different from Nazis or the various communist governments under Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, etc.who killed people who disagreed with their ideology.

Can just imagine Eric the Red in a staff meeting: “D%^& it, it doesn’t leak unless I say it leaks.” was he so obtuse as to think that the lefty “journalists” wouldn’t worry about him going after a Fox journalist?
Yes lets give them f-15s and nuclear missiles like we do to Israel. Then well finally have a stable region !

The un-president and his supporters live in a fantasy world that denies reality. We can expect more chaos and damage, possibly a real WWIII developing out of the incompetence and refusal to see the world as it really is. In the middle east, we have one friend, Israel. In that region, the enemy of my enemy is still my enemy. The US hasn’t learned this lesson over the past 90 years. Things won’t get better until we do.
