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.

Puppy Linux is awesome. I use it as my recovery boot so I can fix files I screw up.
If you get wild hairs like I do and dual boot and experiment more than you should, this is a life saver CD. Comes in handy when restoring disk images, too. This and Gparted.

Hey, want to try something neat? Boot up with Puppy and go the console. Type in:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M

You may have to substitute hda for sda.

Have fun.:-)

Sometimes it takes on the ssss sound and sometimes the k sound. Sometimes it's used a number and sometimes a musical note. I hear it's also used as a static variable in mathematical equations.
So, not only is c not constant, it's quite versatile.

This is what you get into when clicking ads on sites that give away free porn to attract you. Some of them may even have exclusive sex vacations in foreign countries, or dates with foreign born people of your age and sex preference.

Not mentioning any names, but we have a young poster on here that is semi-retired from doing that. Giving away free porn for ad clicks.

The regulars know who it is.

They had a show on that global consciousness thing a year or so ago. Might have been Through the Wormhole.

It was funny when the guy was pointing to the upticks in Internet activity that were supposed to be happening before the events.

They were actually after the events. But he was just kind of waving his finger around and the camera didn't stay on them very long.

I liked that the show had some of the more out there ideas, but they also had some outright quacks, too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_republic

Islamic republic is the name given to several states in the Muslim world including the Islamic Republics of Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, and Mauritania. Pakistan first adopted the title under the constitution of 1956. Mauritania adopted it on 28 November 1958. Iran adopted it after the 1979 Iranian Revolution that overthrew the Pahlavi dynasty. Afghanistan adopted it after the 2001 overthrow of the Taliban. Despite the similar name the countries differ greatly in their governments and laws.

The term Islamic republic has come to mean several different things, some contradictory to others. To some Muslim religious leaders in the Middle East and Africa who advocate it, an Islamic Republic is a state under a particular Islamic form of government. They see it as a compromise between a purely Islamic Caliphate, and secular nationalism and republicanism. In their conception of the Islamic republic, the penal code of the state is required to be compatible with some laws of Sharia, and the state may not be a monarchy as many Middle Eastern states are presently.

In cases of Pakistan and Mauritania, it is merely a symbol of Muslim cultural identity. In fact many argue that an Islamic Republic strikes a middle path between a completely secular and a theocratic (and/or Orthodox Islamic) system of government.

Atheism is the lack of faith, it takes no faith duh, its not a choice its a natural state of mind. dose it take an christian faith not to believe in Zeus or Thor? atheist don't have a hierarchy of gods they don't believe in there all as stupid and unbelievable as the next.

to me faith in god is knowing its wrong but feeling so compelled to carry on believing because you don't know any other way. that is faith in "God"

Im %99 Atheist and %! Agnostic

MS screwed up Windows, they had a great thing going then BAM, they messed it all up and have yet to recover. The flaws are not easy to spot, until you've used it a bit, then eventually everyone comes to a *nix.

I like windows, but I have a different philosophy than most unix thinkers.
They work great programs using limited resources utilizing processing power in the most efficient ways they can devise.
Windows power users use unheard of processing power, memory and extreme builds, costing much more for the bang. But the bang is bigger, as is tribe,and the tribute, but while there are many windows users.
There are fewer users who know the windows like a power user. Windows is the f-22 of computing, while unix is the intelligent but poor cousin to.
While it maybe the all the rage, it just seems to have missed the party boat. There is the good side , and the down side to everything I suppose.
