As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    What's that fundamental reason?
    "My own suspicion is that the universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose." JBS Haldane.

      But have you ever seen a god go to the Moon or to Mars yet?

          Well, experience is part of rocket science, but there's a lot more to it than that. Experience, depending on it's nature, can be open to interpretation. Science tries to eliminate that.

              Science, which you experience, but in itself is different to just experience.

                  The scientific method is basically a disciplined way of looking at things, designed to filter out our often unreliable subjective experience. It tries to get at what is rather than what we might think is.

                    So you have experienced I suppose, or at least experienced reading about it.

                      Yes, and I've also understood that the scientific method is the best way we have of finding out things about the world. It filters out our prejudices which can lead us astray.

                        That is what you have experienced, it seems.

                              Yes. But understanding is more than just experience.
