Have any of the New Atheists toured [[Islam]]ic countries giving lectures in which they condemn [[Allah]], [[Muhammad]], Islam, or Muslims? Have any of them debated Muslims in Islamic countries? Have any of them been interviewed on Al Jazeera? Have any of them written entire books in which they condemn Allah, Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims? Have they ... (more)

Apple clearly care more about their profitability than they do about market share.

The GUI war is a long time in the past. Xerox built the GUI that Microsoft and Apple went to court over anyway so perhaps both parties should've lost.

Well, we'll see. But if you do an analysis of how many phones have a droid operating system, as opposed to an Apple operating system, chances are that far more will be Droid because Droid is installed on many different manufacturer's devices (phones, tablets). Same thing happened with Windows for desktop computers. But again, we'll see. I only know why Window buried the Mac OS on desktop computers, even if the Mac was a more stable OS.

A translation is **not** a revision.

I would expect nothing LESS, than a **literal** appearance from one of gods messengers or other, and the **revision** handed down literally from on high.

Anything less?

Would be ...

.... human laziness.

Are you **sure** you want that, in a deity?

But.

Brains can be damaged, such that memory is lost. Then the brains are repaired from the damage-- and return to normal brain function.

But the **memories** are gone forever. Lost forever--never to be recovered.

That proves, beyond a doubt, that souls DO NOT preserve memories.

For the benefit of anyone who is seriously trying to change themselves for the better.

That may or may not include yourself.

But it did, once upon a time, include me-- I was helped a great deal, by reading and comments by other atheists, back when I was struggling with my own self-imposed insanity (faith).

Not **all** of them had such--belief.

And the majority that DID-- were not CHRISTIANS.

At all.

There was, at best, one or three christians as YOU understand the idea.

That is an amazing bit of insight, that I had not considered in exactly that way.

Well done!

Their religion literally punishes them for being human--for being born.

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.
Interesting. I agree with your last bit-- to be a "satanist" one must believe in "satan" as portrayed in literature.

The choice of literature, obviously, is up to the individual believer.

Yes. And it's actually getting better.

Of course, much of that improvement, comes from a deliberate creation of the server-side meme, which monitors for errors--and tries to correct those errors in the background.

When computers were first conceived, and some primitive machines created, the operators would run them at least 3 times. If the results were 2 of 3 in agreement? They concluded they had had a valid run ...

... the fact is, semiconductor electronics is founded on chaos. It literally depends on quantum uncertainty to work properly.

At that level, the random factor is a serious issue-- and must be compensated for. And is.

The most famous is the ubiquitous Check Sum. And now, scientists have found a kind of Check Sum in nature, too...

... amazing: reality is always ahead of us thinking apes.

From his perspective, it has.

The USA is not a theocracy, and he is not allowed to torture, maim and murder non-christians as he'd like.

Look, I'm a software developer and GUI is everything and will always be an ongoing war in varying and new fashions. GUI is "Graphical User Interface". The GUI war is going on right now and always will be going on because that's what actually sells the latest and greatest product. It's ALL about the intelligent design of the GUI and the smartest people give the most power to the user in the simplest fashion. That's what it's all about if you want to sell something. And that's why anybody even develops software in the first place. Why would anybody want to pay me any money unless I solve a larger marketing problem for them? That's the way it simply works. I don't make any money unless I solve a marketing problem and they take this and make money from it, and that's why they pay me. I used to be in Marketing and Sales so I have no misunderstanding of this fact.

You have no idea of how modern operating systems work, or at least you have a really bad explanation of it. But the good news for me, is that at least I know I'm not talking to some pimple faced teenager, because a teenager wouldn't have said what you just said. There is "some" archaic truth to what you said. So that's good. Client systems are made to go back to a server and check for things. It is highly inefficient for a server to monitor and check all of it's clients. It's conceptually called, why should the mountain come to Muhammad if Muhammad can simply go to the mountain? This means, why move the mountain to check everyone, if everyone can simply go to the mountain and check themselves when and where they need to? Otherwise, it's called a push concept rather than a pull concept, where the server pushes out to it's clients and has to continually monitor them, rather than the clients pulling from the server whenever they need to. The latter is far more efficient.

Ah yes, the Quorum model. I worked on clusters, avoiding "split brain" was the biggest issue in a 2-node cluster.

With regards to check sums in nature, I assume they eventually Evolved into place because it would be more difficult for non-checksum genes to be passed down successfully.

"Look"?

You seem to be getting a bit bent out of shape about what, precisely?

I was referring to the famous GUI court case between Apple and Microsoft, that, in fact, was mainly about Xerox IP. It's a long time in the past.
