Pretty much. Just bear in mind supernatural does not imply omniscient or omnipotent. Any being that can modify/break the rules of our universe would be supernatural(i.e. above our 'natural' laws.).
"Suppose we discovered that our universe was created by a non-supernatural being that lives in a "parent" universe."
Such a being would be "super-natural" to us, as in above and beyond the laws of our universe. As to the questions, it depends on the character of this being.
Jason above doesn't appear to be very Christian. I would hope he is not representative, and merely loud.
His reaction appears to be that of one fighting a losing battle, since deep down he doesn't believe the literal account in Genesis. Ironically that unnecessary tension within him will likely ultimately result in the loss of his faith. Leave him be, unless he learns better, it will eventually and sadly run it's course from uninformed christian to uninformed atheist. I am not entirely sure which is worse.
A DC drive is generally variable voltage/current and switched through a scr. At full power, they would be smoother. At low power, the switching frequency will cause severe ripple. 3 phase is better for simple rectifiers and is indeed smoother.
He lost me at 'Agile'.
That is how I read it too. Basically google is trying to use Youtube to leverage it's way into the audio streaming market. This in itself isn't evil, but the means they're using (brute force) is a bit shitty and the contracts they offer are also (allegedly - I haven't read one) shitty. That would be evil, or at least not good.
I thought everyone knew about Elvis!
I don't actually think this is about tolerance. Sure AC is a rude bastard, but he isn't entirely wrong. It is
Personally, I don't buy a literal interpretation of Genesis, and I have found people who do tend to grasp desperately at anything that seems to support their argument, which often leaves them with egg on the face, as it were. Almost as if they don't really believe, but are trying desperately to convince themselves. It's a position that seems to me to be a bit antithetical to Christianity, and perhaps is ill-advised. I don't doubt that there are literalists who aren't quite like that, but it seems to be a trend of sorts. Perhaps because the television evangelists realised that a good conspiracy sells very well and have been pushing it for years to try and trap people in order to part them with their money.
Because no steam content is hosted locally. Right... ok, keep insulting me, you're really on a roll there, and it makes you look so good. Never mind that my complete complaint is that even if what you alledge is the case, why can't apple put "pending local approval" or similar in the store, instead of dangling something in front of you and denying it on the location of not your accound, but your credit card. So if I wanted to buy the game with a sa card while physically located in the states I should be able too. I understand governments can be thick, but I can't see a way apple comes out of this looking good. You certainly don't.
Oh, right. That would naturally explain why it was available on steam at the time. I stand corrected....
This incident happened over a year ago. The app was at the time unavailable.
I do believe him, yes. He seems like an honest fellow, and I have a record of the conversation. Apple, is however, exactly that, a faceless corporation. Who did not care enough to respond to either myself, or the author (again, I choose to trust the author over some beurocratic and notorious corporation, perhaps simply because he was polite enough to respond). You alledging I am a liar is nothing more than an ad homien attack. I did make a best effort attempt to contact both, and I think it is totally reasonable to find in favour of the one who showed up to defend themselves.
For whatever reason, Apple chose to ignore his selection and then did not communicate why. So, I am quite happy not to believe apple apologists in this case.
And yet the author insisted he had selected all regions/countries. I am inclined to believe him, given my communications with him. Apple's guilt.
The author claims he did. Apple did not comment.
