I can believe you, the way Skype does things.

It's my biggest criticism of Skype - you have the "All" list which pretty much shows everyone you've ever talked with on there and grows massive. And then you hav the groups. What you DON'T have is an "Ungrouped" category, which is desperately needed. What am I meant to do, go through "All" and remember who I haven't grouped??

Learning to code is like learning a second language.

As someone who knows (with varying degrees of proficiency) English, French, C#, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, and VB.NET... no it isn't. Human languages are WAY harder to learn, both in terms of having far more information, and in terms of being highly irregular and unpredictable (and that's not to start on trying to understand people pronouncing things quickly and slurredly). I'm still crappy at French after 15 years, but I've learned several programming languages to a decent degree, even as an adult.

Sadly due to a very lousy school system in the US many Christians simply can not understand their own faith. They get suckered in by all kinds of nonsense sects that offer teachings about 100% opposite of what Christ asked of us.

So what if Christ had asked people to believe in creationism? Would that make it any more valid?
