What would cause a person to make an insane choice?
"Supernatural" is not a synonym for "magic."
People really did turn into pillars of salt?
People can be perceived to have been. Witnesses see what they see, never the entirety of what happens.
People can actually die for several days and then be reborn?
The raised dead weren't reborn, they woke up from a coma so deep that nobody at the time could tell it from death.
Virgin's [sic] can actually give birth?
It was thought that parthenogenesis was impossible in sharks, too, but a virgin shark gave birth a couple of years ago. BTW, are you a greengrocer?
No human is infallible.
Because nobody can understand something they don't want to understand.
We have not reached "fulfilment", or indeed any kind of end point to the journey.
And who is saying we have, except your burning straw man?
...the Big Bang theory was was proposed by a Catholic Priest.
I hadn't heard that before, can you link a source? I do know that atheists vehemently opposed that theory, because until then the accepted theory was the "solid state universe" that always existed and exists forever, and the big bang theory postulated that it had a beginning and will have an end.
The only magic that exists is David Copperfield trickery, and I say that as a Christian. Miracles aren't magic, they are occurrences with incredibly low probabilities (like several that have happened to me, including my surviving an "unsurvivable" auto wreck).
The bible doesn't contradict science, although many religious people unfortunately do.
Is there a difference between trolling and insanity? The guy's off his rocker, he might be this guy. I parodied those people in Nobots.
Indeed. The real pirates are publishers.
You know the kind of people who work in visual effects would be just as happy with crayons as a mac. Grammar is irrelevant to them, their job is to remove useful information and replace it with a flashy but irrelevant diagram.
And all the unions can do is stab him
Of course they are. What else can you do when someone is trying to murder you?
As far as Illinois' fiscal problems, they started under Thompson (R), who wanted to both cut taxes and increase spending (sound familiar?). Edgar (R) followed his footsteps, as did Ryan (R). The screaming didn't start until Blago (D) and it's still a terrible problem, but is slowly improving.
Ryan and Blago both went to prison for bribery. Thompson (R) unsuccessfully defended Blago in his bribery trial (note that even Johnny Cochran and F. Lee Baily together wouldn't have been able to keep him out of the slammer).
The current Republican candidate, who "earns" a thousand times the median income, wants to tax my pensions, my social security, haircuts, food, medicine, while slashing both his own taxes and school funding.
No way in hell could I vote for that guy.
While I'm waiting for the corrected copy of Mars, Ho! to show up I've been working on another, Random Scribblings. It's a compilation of garbage I've littered the internet with for almost twenty years.
I get my view of how the lower class is treated by the cops, from watching the TV show "Cops".
Understandable, then why you hold your views of the poor.
Generally the poor are poor because they make bad choices.
Some people, true, but not generally. If you're raised by poor parents, you're up against a very big wall. It's hard for them to buy school supplies, and if you're raised by a single parent it's harder for them to help you because they're probably working two jobs. Having a single parent is the result of a poor choice, but it wasn't your poor choice.
And a poor kid can forget ever attending college.
People who have bills to pay and have to go to work in the morning don't have time to be out causing trouble.
Most of the US's poor work, and are not criminals. But the cops still treat them as criminals; hell, society itself does.
Those folks working at McDonald's, WalMart, the corner convenience store are all on food stamps. That friendly face you see at the checkout counter is the face of poverty, not the idiots you see while watching "Cops" (that show is government propaganda, BTW).
So we are a classless society, in that you're not stuck in one socioeconomic class no matter how hard you work.
Rags to riches is extremely rare and takes a hell of a lot more than hard work. My late uncle was one of the exceptions. Creativity and hand-eye coordination runs in the family, and a stroke of bad luck was the best thing that happened to Dan.
He was injured in WWII in the navy, and became friends with a fellow patient in the hospital who had lost a leg in the war. The army gave him a prosthetic, and Dan saw it and said "I can make a better leg than that" when his friend showed him the new leg, and he did. They went into the prosthetics business, and all it took to sell one was for Dan's partner to talk to a recent amputee, who would invariably say "What could YOU possibly know about it?" All he had to do was pull up his pants leg and it was an instant sale, because you would never know that he was missing a limb.
But there were so many lucky breaks, including genetics, that his rags to riches story (both sets of my grandparents were poor all their lives) would not have happened had a single thing, especially meeting his future partner, who was a born salesman; that's something that doesn't run in the family. We couldn't sell a ten cent hamburger to a starving man.
The fact is, if you're born poor you're almost certain to die poor, and if you're born rich you're almost certain to die rich. If you're born middle class there's no telling; you could die rich, middle class, or poor.
If this society is as classless as you say, then why did no one spend a single day in jail over the banking crimes that brought down the economy? Why did no one from Sony go to prison over XCP? Why was OJ Simpson "not guilty"? Do you think a poor black man would have been treated the same? Hell, a poor white man would have gone to prison under those circumstances.
