It me, fam.
I wonder why it is I even bother.
What do you mean "slide".
We wallow in it.
Yoga bridesmaid pr0n? Here we come.
A single atheist can exist. A group of atheists, will argue theology until the cows come home.
Same with any other fundamentalist.
"Dude, aren't religious rules derived from the holy book/word of god?"
Somebody had to write that book. Long before it was in a book, it was oral tradition. Long before it was oral tradition, it was bedtime stories for kids by parents trying to impart wisdom to the next generation.
Most religions existed long before their scriptures were written. Scriptures are only necessary if you get more than four generations from the founder without the cult collapsing.
"Hunter/gatherers also needed a surplus before some voodoo priest can claim that his magically connection to God helped them find food."
Few hunter/gatherer societies ever achieved a surplus of food- every single day was spent hunting/gathering- and yet they still had priests (who were also hunters/gatherers, you're right as far as a priestly class goes, but the professional priest is a rather recent addition and even today isn't entirely true, every priest I know has side interests and side jobs).
We were better off then because we had the three noble virtues:
We were happier back then.
Slavery to lust is still slavery.
I'm saying being faster, like thinking that we've slayed the horseman of plauge, may just be illusionary progress.
Technology solves everything. Teach your children to think outside the box- and not only will they build a safer world for their kids and grandkids, they'll also make a ton of money off of fearful people in full panic trying to survive.
Myself, I'm thinking that if we start to see sea rise in feet rather than inches, it's time to invest in houseboats.
I'm more of a doubter than a denier- but this could explain men's fashion choices over the last three centuries, which has often baffled me (in that I see all of them as dressing far too warmly for normal room temperatures).
+1 Insightful, if I had mod points.
Exactly my thought. If I was building in Louisiana after 2005, my house would be a houseboat, on dry land, with pylons, and the back of the garage would have a boat in it.
No, this is Bill Nye the Climate Change Guy, where what you had for breakfast is due to CLIMATE CHANGE
Haven't been back to the moon in over a generation. We've recently found out that horseman is back from the dead, in the form of antibiotic resistant disease, because you can't defeat evolutiohn. The internet is no different than the pony express, only faster, and could have just as easily been done with semaphore towers as routers.
"Free free to do so. As I said to MH42, the great thing about freedom is that you are free to do what you want, including nurturing your own spirit."
Tell that to the Democrats- they've been rather busy suing the pants off of people nurturing their own spirits lately.
Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
