RELIGION with its stress on extra-cosmic god, creation from nothing, hollow rituals and fanaticism has been completely and thoroughly defeated by 3 fundamental scientific discoveries:

1) The principle of conservation of energy/matter.

2) The Law of causation.

3) The science of genetics.

Add consciousness as the inherent intelligent factor in the unified field and the picture is complete and self-existent.

Religion is for retards.

Religious rubbish: extra-cosmic god, creation from nothing, mindless rituals and fanaticism.

Thanks for sharing your fantasies with us -- but, you should probably keep the details to yourself.

Anything that cannot be defined in terms of consciousness, energy and matter does not exist. Anything definable should be defined exclusively in terms of consciousness, energy and matter besides which nothing else exists. Life, mind, supermind, self and emotions are the various manifestations of the different strata (and the interactions) of consciousness, energy and matter.

Very sad. I might have to update my wardrobe accordingly.

I suppose it was inevitable. With the demise of phone booths and all.

I also heard that Krypyonite was nixed.

I predict the return of Kryptonite in "Man of Steel II".

In the newest reboot, there was no mention of, but a lot of foreshadowing about, Lex Luthor and Kryptonite is his go-to weapon for fighting Superman. That and doing various things with Superman's DNA (I swear Superman must leave more DNA laying around than a motel mattress.

It wouldn't have made sense in this movie as he was fighting Kryptonians who would have been equally harmed by Kryptonite (Mutually Assured Destruction).

My big take away question was if Kryptonians are (as the movie claims) genetically created from birth to be scientists, warriors or Subway sandwich artists, how is it that Jor El the scientist was able to beat the living crap out of General Zod the genetically enhanced warrior?

Even without the genetic enhancements, that would be like Albert Einstein kicking Vin Diesel's arse.

On the other hand, Jor El the badass was better than Jor El the Godfather. Riding a flying dinosaur was a bit much though.

Also interesting -- compare the level of fitness in the various Supermen over the years -- George Reeves in the '50s, Christopher Reeves in the '80s, and Henry Carvill's CGI-enhanced abs in the latest.

The way things are going, in another 20 years it will require actual superheroes to play in superhero movies.

Weird because Superman keeps getting hotter but not Lois Lane.

I just read a blog which noted that under American standards, Superman is an illegal alien - i.e. no papers - taking jobs away from Americans and soaking benefits from the system. But yet no one seems to care since he is white and not brown.

Speaking of hotties, Miss Connecticut just won the Miss America pageant. She is a 25 year old accountant.

Thats really funny. Back in my college days when I used to study 8+ hours at a time, when my mind wandered it would be to that cute girl on the other side of the library room.

In your case, we now know where YOUR mind wonders. A Rorsach test of sorts.

Its ok, its biological, not a choice.

Are you sure? I just googled it. Looks like it was Mallory Hytes Hagan - Miss New York.

Okay, now I'm confused. Apparently, there's a Miss America, and seperately, a Miss USA. Miss Connecticut won the Miss USA title, not the Miss America title.

Who knew...

Miss USA Vs Miss America

Both pageants have long and varied histories, but Miss USA goes on to Miss Universe and is a Trump owned organization. Miss America is not a part of Trump.

The differences in the competition is that Miss America has a talent portion. Usually Miss USA will be a little more glam and Miss America is a little more 'woman next door'.

Some major differences include....
Miss America is the more established of the two pageants (est 1921). Miss USA has not been around as long (est 1952).
Miss USA is part of a network of pageants including Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe. Miss USA goes on to compete in the global Miss Universe competition while Miss America does not have a world-wide event.
There is no talent section at Miss USA while the talent section in the Miss America pageant still plays a major role.

Reminds me when I saw the Original Village People 10 years plus ago at the Oyster Festival. They werent the original group, they were the trademarked "Original" group.

Advocate never lies.(truth be, they are probably just confused as the rest of us).

The lesson that I learned, in retrospect, is that it is useless to study 8 hours a day. Its not natural, and often it leads to hair on your palms.
