I have no problem with those that are anti.
They help the rest of us confirm our faiths.


Your denial of Zeus only fuels the validity of him. For without Zeus, we wouldn't be here.


Communists in large numbers are athiests for the most part.


Isn't that funny though? Atheists are able to accept equality more readily than the more religious inclined who's very scripture essentially preaches treated others as equal. Yet, just as Bush was able to say the Constitution is just a damn piece of paper, Christians are equally prone to cherry picking.

I really liked what TheWalkingFox said in that post. Just thought that since this has been rezzed I could take advantage of it and say so as well as add my own piece.


----------------------



As I am a PC and my wife is a Mac, my view on this subject is that Linux should keep to itself and stop being talked about in magazines, television, movies and schools. I mean its free and anti-consumer, so it shouldn't get free advertisements or reviews from anyone; does Microsoft or Apple?.

Sure I can see the appeal of fully knowing what is in your system, having free software, multi-language Open Source communities that are friendly and will assist you with any particular problem you have, being compatible on older systems and being easy to use.

But what of the giants from whence it came? WIMP interfaces had to be created (widely contested as to who created them, but we all know it wasn't Linux!), technology had to come along (at a pace, so we could make it worth our shareholders while), compatibility didn't just come out of nowhere (even though we are shoehorning our users against that now, there is only one true OS!) and opening ourselves up to schools wasn't easy (of course they are being trained on our particular operating systems - which will benefit their future employers).

I mean if we all turned to Linux based systems it would be chaos. Think of all the unemployment. Who is going to design cutting edge software if all the programmers are having to work as street cleaners. Think about all the viruses that are just waiting to pounce once people turn away from the true operating systems. Can anyone guarantee that these hackers, who obviously use torrents to share their software as a way of masking their intellectual property theft, can be trusted? You give us money, that's a contract. With these charlatans you supposedly get it for free.

If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

We're not against people practising with Open Source technologies, in fact some of our best friends have Google Android on their phones, we just think that they shouldn't be walking about telling other people about it and spouting it off as if it were the truth. It's obvious that it's a fashionable thing and that people will turn back to Microsoft and Apple once they've gotten it out of their systems.

I mean, can you imagine a world without Microsoft and Apple?

That'd be hell!!

Here's a small video published using Open Source technology which also promotes evil Open Education ideals, watch it and tell me how repulsive it is:



That type of thinking will get you into trouble. Yessiree Bob. You stick with the fold and we'll look after you; like we've always done. No sense rocking the boat.

PS: I do hope you get some semblance of my point here.

We are of the same cookie cutter you and I.

One thing I always wondered, if the lord ever answered the door, to
one of the distributaries of Watchtower.
I'm sure, that even though he adamently claimed, " he really didn't need any". They would still have there foot in the door asking if they could
come and discuss the current weeks topic.

Just because they are truly concerned for his eternal well being.

Yes people, believers suffer this as well as any of you.

It gets really nausiating for us to have to be accused of such things on top
of the heap.


STEREOVOAGED
I thought this was funny.



LOL can't you just see it now? *knock knock*, Hello ma'am how are you today? I'm just here to ask you if you have rejected Jesus as your lord and saviour?? You would be chased off the lawn with a gun hahaha

I don't know about a gun but at least a ballbat.

I'm so happy that my message wasn't lost on you


In my opinion we should all go back to BASIC(s) and judge the universe around us with the tools we have in our heads. Carrying dead weight just makes the journey harder and you can't get as far, leaving those we bring along with us all the further to travel by themselves when we are no longer around.

Thanks for the reply!

Personally, I prefer Q(uantum)BASIC.


People need to put aside biased opinions and personal beliefs in order to discover the true nature of reality in my opinion. Sure, we can speculate and conjecture till the cow's come home, but none of that will bring us any closer to an understanding of anything. It may be fun, but a job is a job it's not fun time. Our job is to learn, know and understand our world, our universe and reality. Anything less is a waste of intelligence.

Agreed 100% as long as we add 'teach ourselves and others to question everything' in there too.

The funny thing is, in another thread, someone called me a skeptic (one who questions everything) as if implying a derogatory term. Of course I thanked him for the compliment and informed him that it was inherently better than blindly believing anything that is said to oneself.


There are more gullible people than there are ones who question reality. It's a real shame to see a planet full of followers instead of discoverers.

I never mentioned Zeus. Was he an Atheist?
Your ruffled response seem to not be accepting my ideas to warmly.
Please don't judge me in terms of GWB thank you very much.
