Where I do use IP devices (cameras, Philips Hue, etc), they go on a separate subnet that can talk to the home automation hub only. And I never use devices that require outside access.
The chunk appears to be lifted from a Babylonian source, and the Babylonians had more than one god. They just didn't have a good copy editor.
Have you seen any sign that the Roman Catholics don't believe in birth control? They may consider it a sin to practice it, but they believe in it as a fact.
You need to distinguish between what someone believes to be a fact and what they consider to be a moral or ethical good (or evil). The two can be nearly orthogonal. If the church didn't believe in birth control, they would probably be less active in arguing against it.
Thus, the Roman Catholic church not having the attitude towards the practice of birth control that you believe proper is not a sign that they have an unscientific disbelief in it. Until Ethics, Psychology, and Sociology become real sciences the church's current attitude is not unscientific. If they do, perhaps it will be able to adapt to them, also.
IIUC, there was a group in Egypt that used that as an act of worship, so this is a decree against that group. Is this the reason? That's hard to determine. Certainly the early Exodusees were reported to be willing to follow Apis, the golden calf god. Most of the other gods were less strictly suppressed, and in fact the rule against having an image of the god is probably to allow various sects that worshiped different gods to merge their beliefs.
Speaking as a statistician, that's not logic and certainly not statistics. It also doesn't fit elementary probability theory. You might be able to craft a plausible argument that had that as an element, but it would need to be encircled by rules of deduction that aren't validiateable. There's no valid rule of deduction that says "a lot of people believe this, therefore it's probably true". It's easy to come up with historical counter examples.
If something came along to replace or reduce programming on the client side, JS usage could shrink quickly.
Server-side languages are probably safer from UI fads and trends.
Relax, ranting about programming languages is how geeks blow off steam to keep us from doing sinister things like hacking Trump's barber to put afro-sauce into the formula.
Indeed. The "money" languages are Php, C-sharp, and Java, for good or bad.
I'm curious why the intro called Php "tied to a specific programming platform". I'd like clarification on that.
Having reread much of the series recently, I don't think it is truer than the Bible. You need to read them both as a certain metaphysical argument on which truth isn't even present. The problem with the Bible is that even as a metaphysical argument it's incoherent, much more so than the Dune series, even though in the Dune series the nature of the argument changes with each book.
You overstate your case. They may have been "ignorant, desert-dwelling sheep herders 20 centuries ago", but they knew a lot of practical biology, some botany, some meteorology and climatology, a bit of hydrodynamics, and a small amount of hygenics. O, and some geology. They may not have been academics, but their life required a lot of applied science knowledge. They theories may have been a combination of unintelligible and ludicrous, but they had a lot of practical matters down cold.
To be honest, considering how sore you still seem to be w/ Kennedy, it reads a bit more like this time your side did it so it's A-OK with you.
At least the Ds weren't willing to actually elect their traitor to the presidency.
You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
