so, you think people choose their religion based upon the color of the sky on a particular day, or how healthy a dump they took?

(wipes butt, looks in bowl....Well, that a protestant crap if I ever saw one.)

Thats even worse than sams claim that their just sheeple going thru the motions they were brought up to mimic, like her own experience.

Nope, I didn't say that. One's religion is largely determined according to where you are born in the world and to what parents, which is completely random.

Seriously? Do you eat with that mouth? You've had a problem about people respecting your religious choices and this comes out of your keyboard?

I don't care if you are trying to describe the words in other people's mouths -- that's just gross.

Welcome to Race's recipe for debate. A cup of misrepresentation, a quart of obstinance, 2 cups ignorance, 2 cups stubbornness, a quarter-cup of self-pity, a cup-and-a-half of incivility, and a gallon of hypocrisy.

<quoted text>Stephen Hawking believes in God. He mentions God a few times in "A Brief History of Time." He doesn't see a conflict in believing in God and in following science.
But he does not believe in a God like the Western religions preach, so I think that is why he was not on the original list.

I very firmly believe that we are all free to believe what we want, without having to justify our faith or lack of faith to each other. I am just getting upset with some people's insistence that having faith or a belief in a God is in and of itself proof of lack of intelligence.

Well, I could dispute the randomness of one's birth, but thats another discussion.
I will concede the point that environment can play a large part in one's choice. But I still maintain that one does indeed choose, and choosing involves cognizant thought, which is still contrary to sams claim that religious choice is devoid of thought.

No, I eat thru my ass and regurgitate random diatribes.
So, how about you point out what was so offensive about my post. The word arbitrary, even by subs definition seems to support my statement. I have no clue what arbitrary values he is using. After all, thats completely random now aint it?

So I was washing a huge (12qt) SS pot that I use for cooking pasta and after rinsing it out, I flipped it over to rinse the outside and I jammed my forearm right into a knife I had used to slice tomatoes that was in the strainer... I mean I jammed it hard too (damn pot is heavy). And I immediately thought of the conversation we had here awhile back about letting knives dry business end up or down. I have now changed my position and believe those sharp pointy devices should ALWAYS be business end DOWN! I dont care if they rust, I will go out and buy another GD set if they do!

I would, too. I used to believe. So now I don't. Does that mean I'm smarter now? No.

My 8 quart stainless tall sauce pan has died. When I made that last batch of chili, somehow I allowed the garlic/onions/peppers to burn on the bottom and after two weeks of soaking and scrubbing with SOS pads (which got ruined quickly), I could not get the thick black layer of sludge off the bottom of my pan.

I gave up last night.

I threw it away.

Now I need a new sauce pot.:(

Or........you could use this thing they have called a towel, and you could dry the knife off and put in your butcher block and not have it sitting out at all. Duh. And I learned "blade down" when I was like 5.

Well, there you have it. See! I am not saying it upsets me to have people say (or imply) that, but to some people, that is the impression being presented. And my whole point thru all of this has been that it is mean and unnecessary to make such inflammatory comments.

I know, you can all say that is not what you meant, but that is how it is being perceived. You folk talk about religious choice not being thought out properly....Maybe you should practice what your preaching before you hit the enter key and post your comments.

I would strongly recommend getting a Le Creuset enamel-coated cast iron. They work awesome and last forever and clean up very easily. I find them sometimes for around half-price at TJ Maxx/Marshall's. I also see the Cuisinart version which doesn't look to be too bad of a substitute, and it's about 30-40% cheaper.
