An aneurysm is a wicked thing, my mother had one though she survived It and lived another 20 years.

People are wondering if his was Covid related

Re: Grant Imahara R.I.P.

That's a damn shame. I knew him on Battlebots way before he did Mythbusters. Matter of fact, I think there was an episode he had Deadblow on there.

Re: Grant Imahara R.I.P.

So young too young. Then we have a POS like charles POS manson POS that live long healthy lives. Such a shame.

Re: Grant Imahara R.I.P.

I thought of a cheeky send-off.

Then I realized that MA OT can’t behave with this sort of statement.

Still gonna send it...

Here goes:

He’s busting the biggest myth of all now.

I'll take the bait...

"Imahara was born on October 23, 1970, to a Japanese-American family in Los Angeles, California. His Japanese name is 今原 真申 Imahara Masaru"

So, with that in mind...

Buddhism and Shintoism are the two major religions in Japan. According to the annual statistical research on religion in 2018 by the Agency for Culture Affairs, Government of Japan, 69.0 percent of the population practices Shintoism, 66.7 percent Buddhism, 1.5 percent Christianity, and 6.2 percent other religions.

“Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spiritual; and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

“If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism. . (Albert Einstein) (edited)

Its like you live to be a punching bag...

DoNoHiO or Einstein??? Thats a tough call...NOT!

A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed- (Albert Einstein, “Religion and Science”, New York Times Magazine, 9 November 1930

I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein, 1954)

69+66.7+1.5+6.2 does not equal 100, It’s not even close to 100%

Ken I respect ya so I'm gonna go easy.

Total adherents exceeds 100% because many Japanese people practice both Shintoism and Buddhism.

Bottom line is that if Einstein accepted or believed everything he was told or thought, without thinking for himself, it would unquestionably be a different world today.

In contrast to all the disagreements we have on forums, its refreshing to agree on something. Mythbusters changed my life, I grew up watching it and I attribute a lot of the foundations of my knowledge and understanding of scientific and mechanical concepts to having watched that show. Needless to say it broke my heart when I heard he passed, not long ago we also lost Jessi Combs.

One of these days i need to go back and watch them all again.

"Faithless" is subjective, science is not. For example, Einstein was faithless to your beliefs but he was not faithless to wrong and right nor science.

You dont read very well do ya?

"Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Re: Grant Imahara R.I.P.

I liked Mythbusters too.

It was no Mr. Wizard, but I liked that it got you thinking critically.

Sorry I started that ^ crap with my joke. I knew better and posted it anyway.

Grant deserves to be remembered for his awesomeness.

And Don, if your bible verse taken literally means that dead people have no consciousness at all, then nothing after life matters and the entire point of religion is moot. Yes, I agree, there is only nothing after death and people should live the best life they can.

Re: Grant Imahara R.I.P.

I just discovered The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last week, turns out that Geoff was built and maintained by Grant.

Mythbusters was also one of my favourite shows when i was younger. May he rest in peace.

Yep. Geof was. Grant was also a Battlebots competitor. That's where I saw him first.

fear of hell was used to keep what the "good people" saw as undesirables down, under control. the "holy man" was used for this purpose. still do to this day.
