'OR' would suffice.
Well, it certainly aint stuff that matters.
I find it hard to believe there are creationists. I mean, if god created perfect brains for them, why don't they use them?
Fly Airbus? Good question. White Christians in Europe stopped having children. They leave the fertility stuff to the Muslim immigrants.
So, a generation from now, Hillboingy or Air-Quaeda? No thanks.
I think I'll go with the Chinese. (I'm surprised they haven't taken over the aircraft industry yet)
Actually, if I understand correctly, Christianity is probably the only religion that doesn't claim their bible was written by god. The Jesus stories were written by mortals, I haven't heard any other claim.
As for creation stories, Christianity gets those from the Jewish bible which it adopted, including the Jewish "calculation" for the age of the world.
I agree with you that arguing with creationists is futile. The argument isn't about who's right and who's not.It's not about trying to find fault with the natural law of evolution or with this or that bible or system of belief.
The issue is about politicians trying to get more power for themselves and more money in their bank along the way. Abusing the faith of gullible ignorant masses is a simple way of getting just that.
I'm not sure this is a job for congress. I believe this is a problem that creationists should be working on. If they can pull this one off they will demonstrate their superiority over that satanical ideology called science.
oh, and Douglas Adams had a much simpler answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything. (What was the question again?)
mod 'spoiler alert'
the documentation IBM prepares for Watson?
If it's like other products, this should be some considerable task worthy of a system no less than Watson itself.
Between those piles of stones and the abacus came the Antikythera a couple of millenia ago.
Not exactly a general purpose calculator or computer, but still pretty amazing piece of technology for the time.
I read somewhere that 'Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.'
That mayst been some olden goings on tither.
Seems like they've bettered themselves since.
The Turkish police didn't really have to place wiretaps to listen in on Erdogan.
They could have asked the NSA for recordings.
Here is some trivia: in Hebrew that bird is called 'Hodu' which is also used in that language as the name of a country you call in English 'India'.
Rumor has it there is corruption there too.
Is that a coincidence or what?
I sit-in-the-armchair corrected.
I'm not so sure about that. I thought that the close-to-vacuum of space does not conduct heat that well. The "low" temperature of space just means whatever particles happen to be there on average don't move all that fast. Without a cooling system, the only way for the electronics to lose excess heat is by black-body radiation, which is totally insufficient relative to the rate at which heat is generated (think of your mobile phone, PC, laptop or TV and how hot they get).
