“Before I even knew there was an issue, when I first heard the song I just assumed they were sampling "Got to give it up", it's OBVIOUSLY the same riff.

I think they thought it was juuuust different enough to call it original, but come on, it's clearly using marvin gaye as a base for the music.”

“""He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter"

*spits out water* ...Ahahahahahahaha!

Yeah that Ben Affleck, really intense that guy, he's got that intimidating, hard as nails, dangerous temperament to him doesn't he.

I guess they are going for a kindly warmhearted Batman. They basically hired another Clark Kent.”

“Lets be clear here, the study is about atheists and RELIGIOUS people, not atheists and deists, or atheists an people who believe in a "higher power" (whatever the heck that is), or even people who believe in a god of some sort,....but RELIGIOUS people.

heck i know a few theists that are as philosophically anti-religion as I am. The problem to me isn't about believing in a god, it's about being religious, and to me at least, anything you can be "religious" about whether a religion or political philosophy or even a tv show, is no good. to easy to be consumed by it, then it start leading you.”

“"I looked at all 21 pictures of plus-size models. Didn't recognize any of them, either by face or name."

"I can name at least six typical models without even trying."

Typical models? If you're thinking of Adriana Lima or V.S. girls, those aren't "typical models" those are the super stars.

Most of the typical models, you wouldn't recognize because they're not getting that kind of exposure.”

“Creationists like this are a perfect illustration that we are only slightly more evolved primates. If there are human beings in the 21st century that can actually believe what this man says, think of the things people thousands of years ago were capable of believing.

The bible to me is incredibly important, it's our first realization of the power of story telling.”

“They believe their people think it's cute but they do not realize that the educated believers jump ship every time someone in charge makes a stupid public statement like this. They serve all Americans well. I hope they keep it up. I am quite sure somewhere they can find evidence that Atlantis and Big Foot are real.”

“Not really, I mean we have far far more choices and knowledge of healthy eating today, back then you couldn't go to any organic healthy stores.    

I agree though many people still eat horribly today, and now instead of cooking that way, we can just go get it at fast food.  

But my grandmother would make pancakes with caro syrup and butter and bacon, almost everyday.”

“Well of course. Look the one thing religion MUST do above all things, is survive, because it's not based on anything verifiable, it's all belief and faith, it works just like the monster under your bed, it only exists within your belief of it's existence. So religion MUST mold itself to how human culture changes or it gets smaller and smaller until it's gone. Which is why fundamentalism looks so extreme today, because it's being juxtaposed by the changing social culture.

We change religion, not the other way around.”

chendri887 on Aug 13, 2013 at 13:38:08

“Well put; religion is completely culture-bound and that is why it is so conflict-ridden/promoting. Yet, it has such a powerful emotional draw for many because it answers deep human existential longings, to the point of blinding people to this obvious fact.”

“I have a logitech mini wireless keyboard, with a tracking pad that operates like the screen of an ipad/smartphone, and it works perfectly, and I'm about 15ft away from the tv/pc.

Bought a PC version of the MAC mini, and plugged it into my flat screen and haven't had any problems at all, and can picture in picture with basic cable.

Works brilliantly, but I understand certain setups may not work.   But honestly I think these Rokus and apple tvs are doing something that can be done for the same price or less without them.”

“Why not just plug your computer directly into your TV? As well, my 3 yr old HDTV does this already, don't all newer tvs come with internet and streaming capabilities?”

Uber S on Jul 26, 2013 at 12:59:50

“My PC is in my office. Way too far from the TV to plug it in. So, six years ago, I built a special home theater PC just for this. Back then, that was the only option.

Let me tell you, it's not all fun. The wireless keyboard and mouse and finicky and clunky to have in the living room. The HTPC is big and uses a lot of electricity. It crashes from time to time like any other PC. It's not ideal by any means.

Now I can just plug this tiny device and stream and control the TV from my Nexus tablet instead. It will really de-clutter my living room. I'm glad.”

“I'm singling out the bible because it's part of the topic, but the issue I'm speaking about is not exclusive to the bible.

When I first started my undergrad in history I was amazed at just how little we can confirm about ancient history, the reason that is, is in part, we don't know who's telling the truth, bull*hitting, out right lying, or crafting history to make history the way they want it to read.

For a long time people thought the Iliad was history.

The bible is particularly suspect, in part because it's religious in nature, contradictory, metaphorical, historical, oral tradition, in most places completely anonymous, written in different languages, during different times, by different cultures, warring cultures, then taken up by the Roman empire who was notorious for crafting propaganda.

If we're skeptical of 21st century news,  why in the world would be hold such conviction over bronze age stories?”

“So let me get this straight, a god created a world to "perfection", that was so fragile that a group of measly primates could "mess it up"?   And that makes sense how?

"An ancestor of a chimp can now talk"    
You realize that we are *not* ancestors of chimps, right? And that that sentence is a neon sign that you're not familiar with evolutionary biology.

"why not an ancestor of a horse? "  you know if you studied evolutionary biology, you'd find an answer to that.

"If you say "no," then you really don't believe in evolution as you claim."

When you know a bit about evolutionary biology, you don't have to "believe" it, you accept the overwhelming evidence.”

“It's because god can't get it right in one shot, he's gotta work out the kinks over billions of years, and at various points wiping all life out to start all over again; because god got his plans from ikea.

Honestly this doesn't surprise me at all, I recently watched a segment on 60 minutes, about these people who had no experience with western civilization and it's progress, and they were coming to america, they found out that people had landed on the moon, and after watching an episode of Mr. Ed asked if horses could talk there, they aren't dumb, it's just that the idea of human flying to and landing on the moon, is just as crazy and impossible as a talking horse.”

“God created a perfect world, it was people that messed it up. What are you trying to blame Him for? An ancestor of a chimp can now talk, why not an ancestor of a horse?

“Sorry, but using the bible, which is NOT historical record, to somehow prove that Paul existed and wrote pieces of the bible, is not creditable evidence.

Again there is NO contemporary historical record that Paul ever was a real person. But if you have some evidence outside of a book of jewish fairytales, I'm all ears.”

“Mark is not a person, you understand that right? That Mark is just a name given to an anonymously written piece?  That there was no actual guy named "Mark", which is a roman name, that wrote anything.   

That IS the evidence, that the work is anonymous, and there is no possible way to attribute it to any actual person or it's validity.  
As someone who spent years studying history for my undergrad degree and masters, I can tell you it's INCREDIBLY difficult to be sure about much of ancient history, not just the bible, but anything else, because it's really REALLY tough to tell which histories are true and which are crafted by the victors.”

“"It could be but that only works in certain situations or contexts if by doing so would teach that person humility."

It was metaphorical.   It was in the context of tell a story.

" I don't think his life should be reduced to one verse."

Of course not, the story of his life is filled with contradiction, and likely, a cultural tale, not a historical one.    ”
