Robin's retarded misunderstanding of "energy goes on forever!"

    First off, it takes one hell of a narcissist to come off as an authority on a matter and have no understanding of it whatsoever. I guess when it comes to Robin, that's pretty much a given.

    So Robin seems to think that she can repeat her misunderstanding of "energy cannot be destroyed" and somehow prove that a soul, or some type of afterlife, exists. Energy can't be destroyed, says Robin, so where do we go? As most of us undoubtedly know, what she's saying is all bullshit. I assume what she's referring to is the First Law of Thermodynamics, which can be summed up as, "neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed," or, more appropriately, "the energy of an isolated system is constant."

    Here's where Robin flies off the deep end, the actual law has to do with what's known in physics as the Conservation of Energy, and nothing at all with religion, souls or an afterlife. Contrary to what Robin desperately wants to believe, energy is not the "self." It is not a pattern, nor does it contain any information. The only way for the self to continue is for the information encoded in the brain to continue, and the brain, like any other organ, ceases to function at or around death. What Howard said about worms eating the body, then shitting into the soil, etc., is actually pretty good. In that respect, energy does undergo change and continue on, but as a far as Robin continuing on as a soul or ghost, she's barking up the wrong tree.

    A friend of mine puts it this way:

    In conclusion, and I know this is a shocker, Robin is full of shit.

    True, energy dissipates via heat and entropy.

    Heat leaves the body. Done.

    Apparently she confuses "humans use and store energy" with "humans ARE 'energy'".

    This might be the most absurd "fact" I've ever heard her proclaim.

    You'll have to cut Quivers some slack, when she was in school they still thought the Sun revolved around the Earth.

    Her rant proved two things:

    1. This is what happens when retards co-incide with advanced scientific theorems

    And, more earth-shattering

    2. Retards don't realize they're retarded.

    The more stupid people are, the smarter they think they are. Scientific fact!

    Laws be damned!
    I want to believe Robin's "theory". It is the last bit of hope I have that I will make it to heaven. I clearly understand what you are saying, but I CHOOSE to ignore the facts because I can. Carry on.

    If Howard had not taken in Quivers, she'd wiping asses at the VA hospital.

    She'd be the wacky one with strange ideas. In other words, the one that doesn't get a key to the needle case.
