Bob also left his wife because she's a theist.
Bob and his ex-wife are no longer together because she cheated, and you know this.

I do detest liars. Why must you constantly lie, do you need someone, anyone, just to turn around and look at you. You know only what Bob posted about the dissolution of his marriage, and you are lying about that.

So you finally admit that you kicked your ex. Progress is being made. Now what about the issue of molesting her kids too? Are you finally going to admit that too? Get help! Get a job too!

Doesn't an atheist have enough moral sense to avoid hell?
What kind of value do you put on your life?
Do atheist believe they have the right to rape, rob, and steal because they don't believe there is a God?
You're an idiot. The atheist is more moral than the religious person because the atheist refrains from those behaviors because they are morally wrong, not to avoid punishment.

Why does your religion make you so guilty? Shouldn't a religion fulfill? Your religion says that the very act of being human is wrong.

Some of the founding fathers believed in the Christian god, sure. You also cant deny that many of the founding fathers were Atheists and Deists. Freemasonry was rampant, and they don't subscribe to one religion. They will even accept Satanists. Some say that the whole organization is Satanic, and if THATS the case, just about every founding father was a Satanist.

To believe in satan, you would HAVE to believe in god.

Just an Atheist opinion.

How many times has the "manual" for Windows been updated, since it was released back in 1995?
Do you have ***any** idea?
Something on the order 100's of times **or****more**....!
And that was just for some old crappy computer operating system...

How many times, has your god come down to earth (in one guise or another) to UPDATE THE BIBLE?

NONE AT ALL??????

This has been proven as a lie. The U.S.A. was founded by Christianity and destroyed by your atheism.

So then none of them were Atheists, not even the Satanists, even though you said some were. Anyway, maybe there might have been a few Atheists. Can you name any? I don't know much about it.

I kind of raised a similar point as you just did and I was rebuked for it by an atheist here. Go figure, eh? He suggested that Atheists don't do good things because they are moral or caring people, they just do what they have to do. That didn't sound like a lot of Atheists that I know that in fact do plenty of kind things. Weird.

The reason why windows became more popular than the mac is because they opened up far more about their OS to software developers and made software development much easier and faster than it was on a mac and offered more powerful libraries to developers. So most developers made applications in windows. So it was actually windows catering to software developers that made it become so popular.

It's funny that the Mac is always seen as the open, good guy and the PC and Windows is always seen as the secretive bad guy. But in reality, it's the exact opposite. Macs have to be made by Apple. A PC can be made by anybody. And it was Microsoft that opened up far more of it's OS secrets for developers than the Mac. It's really just that everybody hates a winner and they will always be the bad guy. But, as far as which is the better and more stable OS? Probably the Mac, or at least it used to be. But all OSs are getting so good now, that it really doesn't matter. And the "supposed" "good guy" is way more expensive for no justifiable reason anymore.

And the funniest part is that Apple is repeating the same exact mistakes with the phone and tablets that they did with desktop systems, and the Droid is going to over take it. You would have thought that they would have learned, but apparently they did not. They are still a far more "closed" and "proprietary" organization.

I choose Mac OS because Windows still patches itself up excessively (both 7 and 8) and require heavy dumbware such as AV to survive on the web. That's why I use Mac OS.

Microsoft also do dumbass things regarding portability of licenses that hurts the user experience.

I'm making no moral claims regarding the Apple corporation, though. They're just another big corporation.

Apple have learned to focus on profit per unit, and that policy is still working for them. This is why Apple now have over twice the market capitalisation of Microsoft.

Sure, the Droid is going to supersede the IPhone and IPad, if it already hasn't, just like Microsoft did with Windows. But the Droid is not Microsoft, it is Google. As far as patches in Windows, there rarely are any patches, with the exception of the disastrous Vista. It's almost all security updates and Windows has to have these because everybody's gunning for Windows when they write viruses or malware because the overwhelming majority uses Windows. But now, that the IPhone became popular, suddenly Apple had problems with security holes as well. People are now bothering to find security holes since it is now popular and they are finding them. As I said, nobody likes a winner. It's just the ugly or malicious side of human nature. Even a great, successful invention such as the computer itself exposes itself to the uglier or malicious side of human nature where people try to knock it down or make it problematic just for the sake of it.
