Agreed.
Now my *opinion* is that a lot of women complain about the equal pay thing when in fact, they aren't doing the same amount of work, just have the same job title. Am I wrong?
Yes, I think you are wrong.

Of course, I realize you obviously think women are opportunists as well and dishonest ones at that, which is in keeping with your faulty thinking that the gender as a whole is "devious".

I think most cases about pay discrimination are those that involve women doing the same exact job and the same exact work as men but for less money.

And I would imagine there are also cases involving those of the same gender where one man is being paid less than another man for the same work and where one woman is being paid less than another woman for the same work.

Gender should have no bearing on pay discrimination. If two PEOPLE are doing the same exact work and are equally productive, their pay should be equal in most cases....seniority may come into play as a factor, but other than that, it is wrong to pay one person less for doing the same exact job and doing it just as well as someone else who is paid more.

<quoted text>That's nonsense, but it's another debate entirely. The whole red vs blue game that everyone wants to play is stupid. I'm not saying that everyone should get to sit on their ass all day and collect welfare - but I am saying that the labor pool should have just as much, if not more power than the people that are employing them. But the average rich conservative doesn't want that, because that would make it harder to get cheap labor, which is really all it comes down to. Why else would certain conservatives be against unions? Why would they be against the ability to strike? Why else would they be against benefits/unemployment and disability pay? Those things strengthen the labor pool, and weaken their ability to get cheap labor.
Anybody that's against welfare or unemployment or disability is a crackhead.

In turn, anyone that relies on those indefinitely is also a crackhead.

Also, anyone that pushes those onto folks instead of actually taking care of themselves is also a crackhead.

50% of us are crackheads.

Then it's one of your 'god rights', and there are many things that your deity belief condones. Many of those things contradict the rights of an American.
Your beliefs concerning what it is you think your deity prefers, likes, commands or doesn't, do not supercede the rights of an American citizen. They don't.
As more people realize this simple fact, your religion will lose the power it sways in the United States.
The rights of God are not supposed to conflict with the rights of Americans. If Christians decide to not have same sex marriages, that's fine. But it shouldn't be pushed to everyone. It's our beliefs, not yours.

I'm sorry that some Christians fuck it up for the rest of us.

Agreed. Again.(wow that's twice in one day):o

Now you can use your power of paste & provide some links regarding this actually happening.

I think it happens. And it shouldn't. My skewed views tell me that in most cases, the woman is just bitching & has no facts to stand on.

Do you think that quoting dogma from your religion is an effective strategy?
in the foreknowledge of God, He knew what barbaric humans would do to His Son for demonstrating the perfect will of the Father. BUT, don't think for a minute that it lets you off the hook for murder!

quoting the truth of the Word IS effective strategy for those "who have an ear to hear", but it's "foolishness to those who are parishing"

Gee, thanks for telling me what I can do, but as you agree with me and as you say you think it happens, you can research such cases for yourself if you're interested in disproving your belief that the woman is "just bitching" and has no facts to stand on.

I don't agree with you here. We can make mathematical models that are based on those we invoke today to both explain and predict phenomena (like the general theory of relativity), subtract Time and Space from the equations and see what happens.
No, I don't know how to do that and yes, they would still be speculative. But they wouldn't be pure fiction/guessing/intellectual laziness like calling something we don't know "God." In this case, our speculation would actually have some basis in reality - after all, it would have arisen from testable, demonstrable hypotheses. And, yes, we wouldn't be able to test it - until some better technology comes around.
I am pretty sure, but not certain, that's how the "quantum instability in a large scaler field" model works.
Hate to break it to ya but you told me that you always would trust poly over yourself in matters of Physics. Well poly agrese with me that there is no way to even approach t=0 mathematically or philosophically or any other way you can think of. I'm not minimizing the science that you specialize in but you're way out of your comfort and confidence zone talking like that about physics.

Quantum instability models have nothing to do with t=0. And I don't care what you say, there is nothing that we can say about t=0 that would be any more useful than saying Goddidit.
First, he's honest about what we don't know. But let's not make the discussion about someone who's not here to speak for themselves.
Second, physics models about the origins of the universe fit into two basic types: those we derive from our useful and usable physics theories and those that are mathematical speculation. The former apparently don't describe the origins very well and the later aren't testable at this point.
You were more honest than he when you admitted/agreed that a particle forming from nothing must actually be forming from something. IOW the 'nothing' that is used to describe virtual particle origin/oscillation must technically be something.

How do you propose to make intelligent inferences about the nature of reality if you don't use a model that accurately mimics reality?
I mean, I can literally think of hundreds, maybe thousands, of fictional beginnings to the universe.
What good would tossing out physics models do?
I'm not saying models are worthless, I'm sying they cannot be used to even speculate on t=0. It's basically a no-man's land until something might come along in the future to help us along. That's not to say there isn't speculation and numerous big crunch and big bang "theories" like the Omega theory of perpetual contraction and expansion.

Only some of the pay gap is the result of discrimination by employers. Men crowd into high-paying fields like engineering, while women dominate lower-paying fields like education and social service. And women are more likely than men to fall off the career track when they have children. They take time off and lose skills, or they opt for less-demanding jobs so they can spend more time at home. Most fathers, in contrast, manage to skate through parenthood without the slightest harm to their careers. Employers could offer family-friendlier policies on leave and flextime, but they canít be blamed for dads who donít do enough around the house.

www.businessweek.com/.../equal-pay

It's Time That We End the Equal Pay Myth:

There are numerous other factors that affect pay. Most fundamentally, men and women tend to gravitate toward different industries. Feminists may charge that women are socialized into lower-paying sectors of the economy. But women considering the decisions theyíve made likely have a different view. Women tend to seek jobs with regular hours, more comfortable conditions, little travel, and greater personal fulfillment. Often times, women are willing to trade higher pay for jobs with other characteristics that they find attractive.
Men, in contrast, often take jobs with less desirable characteristics in pursuit of higher pay. They work long hours and overnight shifts. They tar roofs in the sun, drive trucks across the country, toil in sewer systems, stand watch as prison guards, and risk injury on fishing boats, in coal mines, and in production plants. Such jobs pay more than others because otherwise no one would want to do them.
