Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Yes.
But when the subject is supposed to be cerebral and all scientifical?
<grin>
Then it is most amusing to point out the grammatical errors by the poster.
This is especially true if the poster claims to be all "edumacated-like"...
:)
Indeed!
Some are truly unintentionally funny.

Siri can put word combos together that are really funny and I leave them in deliberately.

Pole lice vs Police is a example.

Nope. You've been watching too much Faux Snooze.
But that's okay-- I still like you anyhow.
It hardly matters, as we don't live in the same town, we're likely to never be affected by the stand your ground [legal murder] laws anyhow.
I don't watch FOXNews Bob you know that!
But I do separate the wheat from the chaff.

You fell into the SYG media hype.
I didn't. I am too cynical and too skeptical!
And I have a home-court advantage! ;)

It's only a difference of opinion - so like you said it really doesn't matter.

This is the first time I believe you and I have disagreed on a given subject.

My beef was simply the pseudo-reverends - Jesse and Al are nothing but professional race baiters.'Men of God'?

it surprises me that builders down there havent discovered concrete yet to use for building houses!!

Oh sure we use concrete, we have big concrete factories. They can form up anything to spec, lightweight to super dense stuff. We do this in commercial construction .
But home building except for a few is a very traditional southern style, that spans the entire eastern seaboard. From Maine to Fla. where it takes a definite Spanish to Cuban style flavor.
But California is known to do off traditional flavors abundantly.
Despite all that Cabin style and Container construction is in everywhere, because we have so many containers that don't get reused. It would be interesting to combine the two concepts.

I despise voice-to-text myself, so I haven't experimented with it much.

Also, I type at roughly 70 words per minute, so I can actually type about as fast as I can speak--faster, if I'm trying to make a robot understand what I'm saying.

One reason why I don't use my Galaxy 3 on Topix.

It **was** a bit over-the top.

I'm sorry I stooped so low-- it was unbecoming.

My beef with SYG, is that it fails some of the basic tests we have for laws-- there is simply much too much margin for error within it's scope.

Until science ever invents a truly accurate lie detector? Or, perhaps a time viewer, so we can go back and see what happened?

I think SYG is too easy to abuse.

That's my biggest beef.

That, and the racial inequality in how laws are applied-- I know that statistics do not correlation make, but they do show a strong discrepancy between whites and people of color, in how the laws are interpreted by the "justice" system.

And SYG only opens that door wider, for even more discrepancies.

I agree on SYG.
I don't favorite either.

You have an inquiring mind like me and I think you'll find this interesting...

In fact, such an event occurred in 2009 in Greece, N.Y., a suburb of Rochester. Roderick Scott, a black man, shot and killed an unarmed white teen, Christopher Cervini, whom he believed was burglarizing a neighbor's car, with a licensed .40 cal. handgun.

There are many similarities between the Scott-Cervini case and the GZ-TM case in Florida. In both cases, there had been a spate of criminal activity in the neighborhood.

In both cases, the shooters called 911 to report suspicious activity, yet chose to confront the unarmed suspects outside their residence and off their own property prior to the arrival of the police.

In both cases, the shooters claimed that they felt threatened, and fired in self-defense. In both cases, local law enforcement applied relevant state law.

Despite the fact that he left his own property, confronted, and shot dead an unarmed white person thought to be committing a petty property crime, Scott was acquitted by a majority-white jury after claiming that the Cervini charged at him, putting him in imminent fear of his life.

All-too-familiar isn't it?

And no I didn't think your comment was unbecoming... I know you better than that! ;)

We live in a violent country, I guess.

The only sane answer, if one intends to stay, is to arm yourself and learn how to use it well.

(as arming yourself with something you fired maybe 50 times is worse than not carrying anything: a determined attacker will simply take it from you, as you fumble with it's unfamiliarity, and use it against you)

Which reminds me-- I need to find time to go target practice again.

There's a local shooting range nearby, but they are run by NRA nutters, and insist on NRA membership before you can join... WTF?

I guess my money's not good enough for them...

Earlier we were speaking about using Siri.
As I mentioned sometimes I leave things and just for fun...

You missed this!

" I agree on SYG.

S/B 'I don't favor it either'. This is an example of leaving a Siri mistake in!

Yes it is violent. And the NRA rules Congress.
In Florida there are target ranges everywhere.
Indoor and outdoor.

I would think Oklahoma would be gun country like most of the Western states? Is there any open area you can do target shooting?

Those Texans shoot a lot of people.
