Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

I didn't do it. It was the idiot cable repairman running a breakdown test 3 blocks away without checking for people working on the cable first. I was just doing the same toning out pairs I had been doing all day. Then I hit that magic one. Almost launched me out of the ladder seat. That was 46 years ago. Had two MENSA qualifying IQ tests since.

You should give it a try. Couldn't hurt.

Why do you go into these juvie modes?

Why is your default, fail safe position always malice?

How about you shocking us with just a little kindness.

There was no malice Eagle, only sarcasm. I happen to know many people who experience trauma of any kind, in fact do sometimes become highly religious.
This is a frailty of the human psyche. However with Dave it was a joke, as he comes up with some incredibly strange ideas about science mixed with spiritualism, or pseudoscientific
ideas that scream the "Did you hit your head on something Dave" attitude.

It really isn't "safer". Fire hazardwise it is more dangerous because of the higher current usually carried. Dramatic increase in sparking on bad connections or switching heavy loads on and off. Higher current equals higher temps. Your insulation, wire size, and conduit has to be designed for higher temp ratings. Overall it is much more expensive.
Your circuit breakers are double of what a 240v will be. Wires get much hotter before the breaker blows. This is why you have thicker wire required for a 30 amp load than a 15 amp load. A dead short can melt the thinner wire. Then you have melted copper near 1800 degrees F in your walls or conduit.
You won't notice much difference being zapped by 120 or 240 AC. It is the path the current flows in your body tht kills or doesn't. If your heart is in the path they are both going to interrupt it. This is why you put your left hand in your pocket when digging around in high voltage circuitry.
Now, pulsing DC at those voltages will bite the living shit out of you.
That's interesting, thanks.

120 can be seen as more dangerous because it's just enough voltage to lock your grip onto a conductor, should you be unfortunate enough to grab one. 240 will blow you off it.
Now that's a worry.

It has more amps so electrical pressure is more likely to go from hand to hand, and across your chest, therefore through your heart. Which it what will kill you.
I have heard that. It's actually the amps which are more fatal.

I mock 'rational atheist' oxymorons like you. A verbal wack to the head with the intent to shame you out of stupidity.

But instead of admitting your foolishness,'rational atheist' oxymorons pretend I'm not here.

How's that working out for you?

I'd prefer to find at least one literate Christian on Topix. Today's lesson?

Compound Modifiers

A Hyphenated Modifier refers to when one connects two adjectives or adverbs together using hyphens. Using modifiers before items in a series can play the role of emphasizing their effect.

"near-senile old jackass"

Tomorrow we'll investigate using commas to separate adjectives in a series.

"near-senile, old jackass"

Next week's lesson will be about truth in self-representation.

That explains so much. I'd wager the brain passage took the least amount of time.
