#2867442 First Take Discusses A Woman's Responsibility To Avoid Being Beaten

Posted by Cat on Yesterday, 10:02 AM

Maaaaaybe can see this with a slap. However, I can see no circumstance where a person says something worthy of a full on Mike Tyson's Punch Out uppercut in the middle of public, especially when said person has no chance of fighting back.



Oh i totally agree that people shouldn't be landing punches or slapping. I guess I'm just also saying people shouldn't be acting like crazy fools, outta control and wreckless with their words.

I'm feeling feisty this morning and maybe a little out of my mind.  I didn't read their comments but I personally don't think hitting a women is any different than hitting a man and I'm anti-hitting anyone for the most part.


All that being sad, some people (men and women) get out of control and start acting a fool, saying things and doing things that purposely pushes peoples buttons, when acting that way they shouldn't be so naive to think their actions and words aren't going to bring about some consequences. Point is if you really don't want to get punched in the face there are some things you can do or avoid doing to help keep this from happening.

I'd have no problem with this especially if he's requested more sex in the past and she shrugged it off like it wasn't her problem. 


Not sure how making a detailed list is immature, it's data collection. I LOVE IT!

Ahh. You think im saying some under 40 should NOT have a philosophy. Not the case. My dad's quote is for guys that would come to him at 20 and go my philosophy on life blah blah and my dad was just making the point to come back @ 40 because it will be much dif.
Come on guys. First you say im saying people learn the same and then that people that are young shouldn't have a view on life. For realz. Lol

I like what my dad use to say. Dont tell me you have a philosophy on life until you are 40.
And it wasn't just towards me. I think he was right.

If age is how we should determine someones level of wisdom and enlightenment then we would find  old people in general agreeing on philosophy but they don't.

Cool, I'm hoping for better results this week.

Btw, I took your advice and tried a new veggie. Credit to my wife for picking Eggplant and making some Eggplant Parm. That's admittedly not the healthiest dish to make but it was a good start.

Hit me with your ideas for quick healthy meals when you get a chance. Thanks!


Easy Eggplant recipe, it's in the oven a bit but  your time cooking is very short. 


Bake eggplant slices and zucchini cut long ways with a little cooking spray and salt and pepper for about 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees.


Place zucchini pieces on top of eggplant slices

Add a little of each ingredient to each eggplant slice:



marinara  sauce (one with little sugar, and processed ingredients (not ragu)

1/4 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

cherry tomato per egg plant slice


Put back in oven at 400 degrees F.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

Shirts suck for me too. If I buy a medium it's a little tight in the arms and ends up a little too short. A large is way too long and looks like an oversized dress



Shirts are the same with me...  depends on the shirt, but usually arms are tight on Large and XL is like a dress.


Oh well, I guess I just have to keep wearing tight sleeves.



Don't know what your guys style is, he has found some shirts at American Eagle and Express i think they might be called fitted or something like that, anyways they seem to be wider up top but not as bulky in the waist.

Yeah, I was sore yesterday after my squat-a-thon. It's ok though, cause you can seriously bounce a quarter off my ass.

Jealous! that's what I'm working towards, my ass is the last place I lose weight. When I started working out my abs and core were ridiculous looking after a couple of weeks, 3 years later and my ass is still not where I want it to be errr! But it's getting better.

212ft long, 63ft high = 13,356 sq ft?     Puts us in the top 11 biggest video boards in the world list?  Third biggest in the NFL after Jacksonville and Reliant?


since #10 is Reliant Stadium with 14,548 sq feet.

#11 is Meydan Racecourse with 12,708 sq feet.

Sean Carroll Slaps Down Fine Tuning Argument
April 28, 2014 By Bob Seidensticker 377 Comments

Balancing-rocks.jpgThis is the conclusion of a summary of the recentdebate between philosopher William Lane Craig and cosmologist Sean Carroll. In part 1, I summarized Carroll’s response to the Kalam cosmological argument. Here, it’s a response to the other half of Craig’s argument, the fine tuning argument.

Carroll began with a compliment of sorts.

This is the best argument that the theists have when it comes to cosmology. That’s because it plays by the rules. You have phenomena, you have parameters of particle physics and cosmology, and then you have two different models, theism and naturalism, and you want to compare which model is the best fit for the data. I applaud that general approach. Given that, it is still a terrible argument. It is not at all convincing.

1. What fine-tuning problem?

Carroll raises five points. First, he’s not convinced that there is a fine-tuning problem. Yes, changes in the parameters that define our reality would change conditions, but it does not follow that life could not exist. “I will start granting that [life couldn’t exist with different conditions] once someone tells me the conditions under which life can exist.” We don’t even fully understand life on this planet, nor do we understand it on the other planets in the universe that hold life (if any), nor do we understand it within the other possible universes (if any).

For example, is life just information processing? That raises lots of possibilities for life. “They sound very science fiction-y,” Carroll admits, “but then again, you’re the one who’s changing the parameters of the universe.”

2. Don’t limit God

God can do anything, and he isn’t limited by the parameters of the universe. If life were impossible naturally, God could make it happen anyway. Carroll says about theism, “No matter what the atoms were doing, God could still create life.” That means that apparent fine tuning points to naturalism, since it must do everything naturally and has no fallback. If you insist that the parameters must be just so, then you’re arguing for naturalism.

Physicist Vic Stenger made the point this way in The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning:

Certainly an all-powerful creator could have made a universe delicately balanced to produce life. But he also could have made life exist in any kind of universe whatsoever, with no delicate balancing act necessary. So if the universe is, in fact, fine-tuned to support life, it is more—not less—likely to have had a natural origin. (p. 115)

3. Illusory fine tuning

Some apparent fine tuning vanishes on closer inspection. The expansion rate of the early universe is often cited as one example of fine tuning. In fact, Stephen Hawking in his A Brief History of Time says that it was tuned to 10–17, to the delight of apologists. What they avoid quoting is Hawking just a few pages later:

The rate of expansion of the universe [in the inflationary model] would automatically become very close to the critical rate determined by the energy density of the universe. This could then explain why the rate of expansion is still so close to the critical rate, without having to assume that the initial rate of expansion of the universe was very carefully chosen.

Carroll makes the same point when he says that the apparent fine tuning vanishes when you look to general relativity. The probability of the universe expanding as it did wasn’t 10–17; it was 1.

4. Multiverse

Apologist Richard Swinburne isn’t on board with the multiverse. He says, “To postulate a trillion trillion other universes, rather than one God in order to explain the orderliness of our universe, seems the height of irrationality.”

He doesn’t acknowledge that we have no supernatural precedents by which to evaluate the probability of his god proposal. He doesn’t seem to know that the numberof other universes isn’t the point—there are an infinite number of integers, for example, but bringing integers into a discussion isn’t infinitely complicating. He doesn’t admit that the multiverse is a prediction of well-established science.

Carroll disagrees that the multiverse is extravagant: “It’s a prediction of a simple physical model.” The multiverse hypothesis can make testable predictions. He showed a graph of the density of dark matter in the universe as an example. “You do not see graphs like this in the theological papers trying to give God credit for explaining the fine tuning because theism is not well defined.”

5. Theism isn’t the default

Even if you reject naturalism as an explanation, you can’t fall back on theism. To be taken seriously, apologists must come up with a model of a universe that one would expect with theism and then compare it to the data to see if it fits. So, what would youexpect a theistic universe to look like, specifically?

Theism would predict a just-right tuning of parameters, while we find that the entropy of the early universe (to take one example) was far, far lower than it needed to be for life. Theism would predict far less matter than the 100 billion galaxies (each with 100 billion stars) in our universe. Theism would predict that life would be important to the universe; naturalism says that it’s insignificant. Theism demands that we look at the Hubble Deep Field image of thousands of ancient and incredibly distant galaxies and conclude, “This is all here because of us!”

Over and over, the data shows a universe that matches the predictions of naturalism and not theism.

Which worldview predicts best?

He went on to contrast the predictive success of theism vs. naturalism.

  • Theism predicts that God’s existence would be obvious (in fact, the evidence is poor, and faith is not only required but celebrated)
  • Theism predicts that religious belief should be universal; there should be just a single, correct religion (in fact, we have thousands of denominations within just Christianity, plus many thousand more other religions)
  • Theism predicts that religious doctrines would be permanent (in fact, they evolve and adapt to social conditions)
  • Theism predicts that moral teachings would be transcendent and progressive (in fact, Western society rejected slavery and embraced civil rights in spite ofChristianity, not because of it)
  • Theism predicts that sacred texts would provide practical advice like how to stay healthy
  • Theism predicts that life is designed (in fact, evolution explains life’s Rube Goldberg features)
  • Theism predicts a mind independent of the body (in fact, “mind” changes as the brain grows or is damaged, or even if one is tired or hungry)
  • Theism predicts a fundamentally just world without gratuitous evil (in fact, the Problem of Evil is often cited as Christianity’s toughest challenge)

Carroll is quick to agree that, yes, the theist can whip up reasons to explain away any of these problems. It’s not hard because theism is not well defined and can be reshaped as necessary, like clay. Ad hoc justifications are easy to come up with, but no, that’s not a good thing.

Contrast that with science—when new data causes problems for a theory, science looks for a new theory. And that is a good thing.

The reason why science and religion 
are actually incompatible is that, in the real world, 
they reach incompatible conclusions.
— Sean Carroll
