    Creationists Demand Equal Airtime Over Cosmos Content

    You are correct that you fit into category #3. That is you do not confirm nor deny a that god exists. You reject belief in either direction.

    Creationists Demand Equal Airtime Over Cosmos Content

    If God is omnipotent, couldn't he have just forgiven us? Why did he have to go through all the trouble? Not sure this makes much if any sense.

    Creationists Demand Equal Airtime Over Cosmos Content

    Atheism is the rejection of belief. It's not a denial. There are three possible answers to believing: 1) I believe that god does not exist 2) I believe that god exists 3) Reject belief.

    Creationists Demand Equal Airtime Over Cosmos Content

    This is the stupidest shit I've ever heard. It's all math. Science can't tell the material weakness of the engine internal, transmission, etc without taking it apart. However, if we have the variables, the formulas exist to take the friction in your rearend, rotating assembly, oil weight, oil...

    4 Of The 5 Highest Paid Executives Are From Apple

    They are also there to maximize the money flowing into my pockets (investments). I still own a bit of apple (although I sold most of it for over $100 a share in profit). I am very interested in them lining my pockets so I can retire as well.

    750hp Mercedes SLS Electric Car

    I don't suspect most gasoline engine @ 750hp will get much better than 200 miles on a 12-15 gallon tank anyways.

    Internet Tax Proposal Up For Vote This Week

    What does your response have to do with my post? We can ask a lot of negligible questions. Clearly my response was an attempt to link his sarcastic attitude with his hypocrisy.

    So I take it you pay these taxes voluntarily on every online purchase, to be making sarcastic remarks to those of us who do not want to pay the taxes, right?

    Harsh Punishments Needed to Deter File-Sharers

    I've never understood this. $15 for an album, you pay 9000? Even if you shared it with a thousand people... wouldn't those thousand people be paying the 9000 a song as well? Meaning that.. essentially, that the fine is collected multiple times for the same offense/violation?

    Lenovo IdeaPad G780 Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M(2.50GHz) 17.3" 4GB - $549 AC

    Thought this was sort of warm for someone looking for a budget gaming laptop like I was today for my wife, this seems to be a pretty good deal for $549. She primarily plays WOW and Diablo 3, and when reading the performance seems to be acceptable for something cheap. Also read that it has an...

    Physicists Testing To See If Universe Is A Computer Simulation

    If this were true simply studying schizophrenics would point out the consistency in their arguments. As it is, schizophrenics just talk a bunch of nonsense. I have a few schizo's in my family, most just talk about random shit like winning the lottery, and memorizing the bible because they are a...

    Looking for a deal on a cheap laptop that isn't an Intel Celeron or low end AMD

    Also looking in same price range. Only thing I've found decent were Dell's on delloutlet.com that were refurb and scratch and dent, marked down with the 15% coupon to ~$315.

    Galaxy Note 2, whose getting one?

    Ordered mine today, also shipping on 27th. I hate that all but Verizon had it on sale for 49 and in stock at best buy this morning. Unfortunately where I live coverage for other carriers is suck at best. On a side note, I'm typing this on my wife's droid DNA. I love this thing.

    Galaxy Note 2, whose getting one?

    I'm likely going to be down for one in a few weeks. I travel at least 10-12 times a year and ride on planes, so I'm going to try to get the 16gb, but put a 32gb card in it, and load it with media. I'll probably grab an extra battery as well. It was between this or a top of the line Windows...

    343 Industries Cracks Down on Halo 4 Sexism

    I'm worried that the teenage troll douchebags on there will just report everyone for sexual harassment if they lose. It's typical to get reported for nonsense in most games. Hopefully the benefit outweighs the problems associated with implementing something like this. My assumption would be it...

    Four Million Windows 8 Upgrades Since Friday

    I couldn't get into it. I tried for a few hours, but ultimately I like Windows 7 for now. I'll wait until it's been out a while and see what I think. Much of my work revolves still moving from Windows XP to Windows 7, so I'm not largely concerned with it atm. I know several people who...

    World's Most Ethical Companies

    I call bullshit. Religious beliefs are not by default ethical. Your actions stand on their own merits. If I followed the bible to the utmost literal level, I'd think that raping virgins, genocide, slavery etc. are ethical. Would following my religious beliefs in this case be ethical?

    It is irrational for me to believe almost impossible claims (talking bushes, and various other supernatural claims, etc.) with little or no evidence. I do not have a problem with this in and of itself, so long as the person who holds these views admits they have a faith based position. The...

    Sorry, it's been a long day... been moving into our new house. My sentences are probably slightly incoherent, lol. At least I put an insult or two in there to keep it interesting. I think that drives home the point. ;) I did forget to reply to your last sentence... which was hilarious...

    Your post is also retard rant. Agnosticism is to what you can know, and Atheism means you reject that there is a god. It does not mean that you KNOW there isn't a god. It means that until there is evidence, you are sticking with default position of disbelief. If I claimed i saw a magical...

    You are entirely wrong. Most atheists are agnostics. In fact, almost the entire foundation of modern atheism was done by people who are agnostic atheists. That is, they understand there is no such thing as absolute knowledge... however, they think that it is unlikely there is a God. You...

    .... Your post is wrong on so many levels, it's almost nonsensical to reply. First, you stated you can't point to or measure creativity. Creativity is a subjective measurement to some extent, because someone might think an idea is creative that another thinks is not all that creative...

    First, I have a problem with you claiming all Christian's are this and that. I know various very outgoing Christians. I have NEVER made a point (until recently) to mention my atheism on facebook, due to the area I live in. But I should mention that there were NUMEROUS posts daily about the how...

    Nobody here is claming to have all the answers except you. You are the only one claiming absolute knowledge. You have a problem with not understanding stuff, so you argue God to make you feel better. We are claiming that just because we don't know, doesn't mean god. Are you really this...

    So you are saying that people used religion to start wars, but religion didn't start wars. It is the faith based position of believing in God that made these people susceptible to believing that it's okay for them to kill for God. It is the reason that religions, which are false, can be so...

    Science can explain what you can't see all the time. In fact, now a days that seems to be the majority of the things science is working to explain. Christianity can't explain anything. It is a non-explanation. It is a giant argument from ignorance. For instance, back in the day people would...

    Ahh yes.. the "they aren't a true christian" if they do things like bomb abortion clinics. But if they do that in other religions, it is the religion that is the problem! Meanwhile many muslims are saying muslim terrorists "aren't true muslims". Who is to even say what a "true christian" or...

    But who created the person that created that speck? It is not about what is easier to believe for you, it is about what is true. Even if you DID get to the fact it was created, there is no way to discern what created it, if it was even a "being". It is just as likely to me that it was a form...

    I understand your concerns. I fail to see how what they lead to is too too important though. The most important thing to me is... is it true, or not? If it is not true (God), or we have no reason to believe that it is true, then we must deal with those feelings of what matters. A large...

    We have no hard feelings, it's just that people are easily offended when talking religion. I talk trash about all subjects, and folks aren't nearly as offended as when it pertains to religion.

    Science is the opposite of faith. It is a formulation of an idea based on the evidence. Evidence does not equal faith. There is no belief in science, only a rigorous system of hypothesis, testing, and evidence called the scientific method. Hypothesis are tested against the evidence, and taken...

    WTH are you talking about... science is the goal of understanding the universe. If anything it directly shows that man is NOT the supreme being of the universe. The funniest part, is your faith believes the GOD exists outside of the universe, and isn't provable.. and created man as the supreme...
