Comment There is other software better than Adobe Free too (Score 1) 224

There is a flash player called Gnash that does same thing as adobe. There are all sorts of similar programs that are free that does the exact thing adobe's greedy peoples software does and even as good if not better quality. Stop using adobe. Foxit reader is free and does same as adobe. Gimp is a graphics program does same as Photoshop. Linux has everything you need and more for free. Why is everyone still paying for stuff they can get for free? I don't understand.

Comment There is not any Evolution. Only Progression (Score 1) 253

All you evolutionists try to prove evolution but have not presented any solid evidence. And what it really is, you use the wrong word for what really happens. Humans progress by taking in more knowledge. Either way you look at it, a Human started as a Human and is still a Human. A monkey started as a Monkey and is still a Monkey. An idiot is still an idiot. Darwin thought that all life might be traced to a common ancestor. He imagined that the history of life on earth resembled a grand tree. Later, others believed that this “tree of life” started as a single trunk with the first simple cells. New species branched from the trunk and continued to divide into limbs, or families of plants and animals, and then into twigs, all the species within the families of plants and animals alive today. Is that really what happened? DARWIN’S TREE CHOPPED DOWN In recent years, scientists have been able to compare the genetic codes of dozens of different single-celled organisms as well as those of plants and animals. They assumed that such comparisons would confirm the branching “tree of life” proposed by Darwin. However, this has not been the case. What has the research uncovered? In 1999 biologist Malcolm S. Gordon wrote: “Life appears to have had many origins. The base of the universal tree of life appears not to have been a single root.” Is there evidence that all the major branches of life are connected to a single trunk, as Darwin believed? Gordon continues: “The traditional version of the theory of common descent apparently does not apply to kingdoms as presently recognized. It probably does not apply to many, if not all, phyla, and possibly also not to many classes within the phyla.”29 Recent research continues to contradict Darwin’s theory of common descent. For example, in 2009 an article in New Scientist magazine quoted evolutionary scientist Eric Bapteste as saying: “We have no evidence at all that the tree of life is a reality.”30 The same article quotes evolutionary biologist Michael Rose as saying: “The tree of life is being politely buried, we all know that. What’s less accepted is that our whole fundamental view of biology needs to change. Face it. Explain the complex design of your brain or your eye, or spinal cord. How about the universe? It is so precise you can pinpoint exactly where to land and when by using simple math. It is those uneducated who claim an evolution instead of the real and factual Progression of man just getting smarter by the knowledge he takes in. Facts are Facts. Only fossil evidence that was surfaced was fabricated by those uneducated men anyhow. Dave

Comment Your just ignorant of creation (Score 1) 1152

You said: " People who claim to be Creationists are almost always ignorant of evolution. " In all actuality, there is no evolution, not an ignorance of it. Evolutionists will always be against creation because they want to explain things from a scientific method and make themselves look smarter when all truth comes out is those evolutionists are ignorant of creation. And you have no excuse. (Romans 1:18,20)18For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth in an unrighteous way, 19because what may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them. 20For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable;

Comment Direct Violation of Personal Privacy (Score 1) 130

Since hacking into others computers is against the law, then the people trying to over ride this law should be arrested for treason and arrested as spies. Installing anything in anyone else's computers without their express permission is a direct violation of a persons rights of privacy. These people trying to get these powers should be arrested right now...not later.....They have already violated the peoples rights to privacy by even coming public with this line of thought. Maybe Anonymous should hack into their computers and make public what he finds. I bet they are hiding all kinds of illegal things on their computers. Arrest them for trying to become spies of their own people. They must want a war between the people and the government. Privacy is privacy.

Comment Re:Legal? (Score 1) 294

There are lawyers that will take your case on a contingency basis, in other words they wont and you wont get paid unless they win. I think there will be a good deal of lawyers willing to take on this company if a person has a good case against Paypal. That will be more profitable to the Person who opened the suit and also the lawyers as they always get a 3rd of total damages. I was in a class action suit against Paypal, never saw a red cent. This clause may be better for us users and ultimately benefit the person who opened the suit and will also give contingency lawyers a good profit and also cause Paypal to pay more attention to how they treat their users.

I agree to it if it is for the continued ongoing investigation of fraud that the SEC is investigating. SEC should also consider getting a court order allowing such investigation to be taken for evidence in an ongoing investigation. My 2 cents worth David O'Rourke.

Comment All Hate speech against a religion is against TOS (Score 1) 622

Any and all hate speech towards any religious group or organization is against the Youtubes TERMS OF SERVICE. I guess they forgot to look at it through that side of things. Youtube is breaking it's own TOS by still allowing the video to be viewed. Bet the Federal Attorney Generals Office could show them their own TOS concerning the hate speech towards any religion. Youtube usually would take such a video down unless they SUPPORT THE ISLAMIC VIEWPOINTS OF WHAT WAS SPOKEN. Of course not too long from now all the false religion groups and leaders are going to reap the rewards from the TRUE GOD in his wrath against all wickedness. He would rather you all repented but he also knows alot of you arent even going to try. So, back to the dust you will all go. The word in the Bible called tormentor means Jailor. Tormented forever means jailed forever. So, tormented in Hell forever means Literally this: You will be jailed in the common grave of death forever. Hell means the grave of mankind in general. The Hebrew word is Sheol, Greek word is Hades. They both mean Grave not some fiery place. If Hell is the place of fire, explain this scripture: Revelation 20:14: 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. First you cannot literally take a place and cast it into another place. And even if that was possible. what effect would fire have on fire?.......................NO EFFECT WHATSOEVER. This shows how misled many false religions have twisted the meaning of the word Hell for so many years. By what Jesus said about the rich man and Lazarus, did Jesus teach torment of the wicked after death? Is the account, at Luke 16:19-31, literal or merely an illustration of something else? The Jerusalem Bible, in a footnote, acknowledges that it is a “parable in story form without reference to any historical personage.” If taken literally, it would mean that those enjoying divine favor could all fit at the bosom of one man, Abraham; that the water on one’s fingertip would not be evaporated by the fire of Hades; that a mere drop of water would bring relief to one suffering there. Does that sound reasonable to you? If it were literal, it would conflict with other parts of the Bible. If the Bible were thus contradictory, would a lover of truth use it as a basis for his faith? But the Bible does not contradict itself. What does the parable mean? The “rich man” represented the Pharisees. (See verse 14.) The beggar Lazarus represented the common Jewish people who were despised by the Pharisees but who repented and became followers of Jesus. (See Luke 18:11; John 7:49; Matthew 21:31,32.) Their deaths were also symbolic, representing a change in circumstances. Thus, the formerly despised ones came into a position of divine favor, and the formerly seemingly favored ones were rejected by God, while being tormented by the judgment messages delivered by the ones whom they had despised.—Acts 5:33; 7:54. I appreciated commenting. And I appreciate shedding some light upon the darkness that has been spread out for so long a time.
