Much like the magic of shill games.

If you had intellect instead of a burr up your ass, you would realize how "unphysical" poofing into existence as they claim happened is.

Of course, such violated the speed of light.

That's the point descent OS does not need to be babied.
As said I the best of windows does not even close to Linux.
You're kidding right? The whole point of linux is tweaking and babying the system. It requires a constant babying.
But the really good thing is that not many virus writers are targeting your linux based system. Which is 90% of windows problems.
Virus, adware and malware. It is two different philosophy's in computing, and windows serves the most OS illiterate people of them all.

Sorry but I can't agree with you distros like Ubuntu are easier to install and run than MS.

Yes and a hell of alot cheaper than paying the enormous price for
seven with full install and with a pc swappable product key.
But besides the price you're not getting anything better or worse.
Actually seven ultimate is very versatile and is a great OS, but expensive. IMHO the thing I like least is how it has become a little to user easy, it wants to do everything for you. Forcing you to tweak it to allow you to do certain things.

Actually. Ubuntu has a pretty out of the box and easier to maintain system. Adding the restricted extras for playing all types media is the only thing you really have to do.

You can believe there are those who have tried to hack linux. It is the primary system for web servers. But you have a lot of eyes on the system, which helps to protect against being exploited.

Windows gets hacked because of the automation, particularly interfacing with the internet. It is all about enabling their enterprise customers for MS, not the end user. The weak spot is in the browsers, and how easy the system is to corrupt. Windows is automation. Why you have to reboot it so much on updates. A kernel update is about the only time you have to reboot linux after an update.

Linux is just a lot more careful about what it allows. You do have to enter passwords more often. Windows is geared for others to sell you products, and the hackers take advantage of that. Whistles, bells, and viruses.

No.

Light speed was not violated.

Space itself was expanding faster than light.

Light speed THROUGH that space was not violated.

I also have a 850 sq ft garage with drive thru doors (front and back), rv parking, two sliding gates (yard is 100% fenced & private) and a well in the backyard.

Uh huh. Space just expanded.

Did it expand from within, or from without? Meaning, did the singularity push outward, or did a vacuum sort of thingy pull it out into volume?

Your magical mist of hot stuff had to travel out with it, so something was faster than light. Light was created, or channeled by the event.

Interesting thing about that rather rapid expansion of that hot stuff. There was nothing to cool it off. You can only lose heat via light in space. Yet it condensed into matter. They really could come up with better descriptions of how this all happened. Give Topix atheists something to think about, and not just buzzwords for them to use.

Oh, I'm sorry. I said think and Topix atheist in the same sentence. Talk about fairy tales.

Good article re marriage.
We hear a lot about “biblical marriage” these days, particular from right-wing conservatives battling the idea of same sex marriage or unions. The problem is that most of them are not clear on what that means. Here is a helpful article on the types of marriage found in the pages of the bible.

The important thing for conservatives to realize here is that none of these models are described as being any better than any other. They all appear to have been accepted throughout the bible.

So there you go. The next time someone opposed to gay marriage says that we need to stick with traditional biblical marriage in this country, you can ask them which of the eight kinds they would prefer, and why.

This one is much better and TRUE!

What seems 24/7 to you is actually about an hour or two throughout the day.

I do tend to my duties at home, I do tend to my family. Last night I made spaghetti for us, then the boys went to bed, then me and the mrs were out in the garage listening to music, talking & dancin.

Why is that? So you believe they should believe and think what you think as well? Sounds like it.

Do you believe you are always right and they should never question you? You yourself are a child, you've got to be, to not understand how little you know compared to how much there is.

Republic
Noun
1. a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.
2. any body of persons viewed as a commonwealth.
3. a state in which the head of government is not a monarch or other hereditary head of state.
Just because some Islamic countries are republics and you have a downer (racism) on Islamic countries does not mean that the IRA is not called the IRA
I see it’s not a play for sympathy, you really are thick
That definiion is refering to a republican political system, not the republican party, emotionally suppressed piece of shit! I bet you are only a pacifist and seek soppy peace to make up for the lack of love you received from your mother.

Group marriage should be allowed if same sex is. However, all of these are basically incorporations for economic and social advantage. They can all get out of hand and into the clan sort of thing.

Another interesting article about marriage and children.

No, I believe the parents are the boss, not the kids. My kids don't question my authority over them.

They do however question me on other things. I like it that they do. I encourage them to. There's plenty of things my kids know that I don't & I respect them for that. For example, my oldest son is a whiz at math and is currently acing his calculus class, I can't help him with his homework, I don't know shit about calculus. My younger son is a whiz on his computer, he can make all kinds of files, forms, art & music on it that I can't. I usually get him to make documents for me.

You're assumptions are getting tiresome.
