Also, what’s up with caffeine-free diet Mountain Dew?

No sugar, no caffeine, might as well call it Mountain Don't. But seriously, some countries ban caffeinated beverages that are light in color. All Mountain Dew citrus soda sold in Canada, for instance, was caffeine-free until early 2012.

I don't want a cellphone.

Without a mobile phone, how would you go about reaching roadside assistance or emergency services?

Any shitty old mobile with no service plan will work to call 911

Normally I'd recommend a dumb phone, but HalAtWork refuses even this.

As for roadside assistance, just take off your pants and stand in traffic! Someone will stop sooner or later.

Like a police officer ready to stay you for indecent exposure. I would not find permanent sex offender status worth not carrying a phone.

You *do* know IOS has a search, right? Makes it kind of difficult to fail to find an app you're actually looking for.

As for the rest, different strokes, etc. I have no objection if you choose not to use such a feature (for that matter, perhaps the OS could contain a switch to turn it off for those who are unable to manage more than a single level of folders.

As for not being useful, you're not qualified to say what's useful to me.

Missed this, sorry:

Perhaps they have never even thought about the topic at all (no thoughts == no knowledge). Nor do they form their identity through comparison with others.

These are not the issue, though. If they hold a belief in a god or gods, they are theist. If they don't, they are atheist. You can change from one to the other, in fact many times, but at any point in time, you *are* one or the other.

That's all the theism / atheism issue addresses. Belief in a god or gods -- or not. Has nothing to do with why, how, which or one's idea of identity. It's a state of being, like being alive, or not, or being able to hear, or not.
