The other leads to mass psychosis, deluded beliefs of cosmic justice after death (so pass the money now!), and suicide bombings.
1st question: How do you know what happens after death? Last time I checked it was a one way trip & everybody who's taken it has forgotten to write. That is unless you believe in religion, then there are figures within most religions who have come back after death & told us what's awaiting. So it's not necessarily misleading or deluded to think that ultimate justice is waiting after death, since we really don't know what is going to happen.
2nd question: What's your proof that all religion leads to suicide bombings & the like? There are literally billions of religious followers, yet maybe only a few million actually support, in any shape or form, religious violence. Even those who are faced with religious persecution are likely to try to leave than "fight back". Or did you forget that is the reason for the pilgrims & several US pioneer groups? Today most religious people condemn acts of violence for all reasons. As a Mormon, I am more likely to face violence & persecution from non-religious people because of my church's stance on LBGT issues than any religious group.
There are numerous cheat methods being employed in MWO. The one that truly ruins the game for me is the Aim Bots. And they aren't hard to spot. It's especially telling when one side dominates the drop in the 1st 2 min & the damage done is exceptionally low. To top it off, when you have 1 or 2 players who get 90% of the kills for their side, you know that they were employing an Aim Bot.
There are other cheat methods, but to me that's the one that's game breaking. I've not dug into how to do it, other than doing a quick search for "MWO Cheats" & seeing all of the results that pop up.
so diluted that, statistically speaking, they may not contain a single molecule
Actually according to the Wikipedia article on homeopathy medicine that's almost exactly what it is. Yeah, there's a bit more to it about basing the medicine on what symptoms it causes & some spiritual psuedoscience, but basically the actual medicine given is "...so diluted that, statistically speaking, they may not contain a single molecule...".
But comparing it to the Creation Museum is completely ridiculous and has no place in serious discourse.
You can't relate the entire store & it's patrons to the bogus claims of the homeopathic medicines any more than you can claim that the Westboro Baptist Church is the mouth piece of the entire Christian faith or that Al Qaeda speaks for every Muslim. But you can question why unscientific claims from 1 place are any different than from another. Why does Whole Foods get a pass on selling things of dubious nature, but a religious museum does not? If you are going to impose a high standard of scientific proof on what people are allowed to believe, then shouldn't it be imposed on everything?
I think the difference between most of these health idiots and the Creation Museum is that if a doctor or other health professional sat down with most of these people to explain to them the issues, that they'd be receptive to the facts and consensus opinions.
That my friend is where you are VERY VERY wrong. These are the same kinds of people who believe that immunizations cause autism because some Playboy Bunny said so. It's the same people who will tell you that all "processed foods" are going to kill you. These people are just as much idiots as those who think God is just going to magically help them. People will cling to their beliefs no matter what & no matter how "stupid" others think they are.
You shouldn't suspect anything. The fact is we have no idea what he is really like, except that it almost certainly isn't what the media have portrayed.
The fact that Slashdot posts this shit is a sad sign of the slow decline. You wouldn't get this over at SoylentNews.
How do you know that that he isn't the prick that the media has made him out to be? Here we are talking about a guy who was willing to sacrifice confidential informants & journalists just to reveal the truth of how bad the US is. Anyone willing to push their agenda at the costs of innocents is not someone to be admired.
If SoylentNews is going to filter out news it finds distasteful, then I'll stick with Slashdot. I don't need a nerdy version of FoxNews/MSNBC.
I'm hoping that StarCitizen holds up to what it's promising. If so, it seems like it'll be a better version of Eve.
For the Dragon!
Those of us who do have guns dont get offended very easily.
While this is mostly a true statement that I support, it isn't 100%. Just ask the widow whose husband got shot by that ex-cop because he wouldn't quit texting during the previews of a movie. It wasn't in Texas, but it still applies.
