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.

Why do you people insist on proving how little you know and understand?

What pressures are on elephants to change?

How many different species of elephants have there been?

Have they always lived where they are now?

What exactly do you know about the history of elephants?

and of course you do know why ~ even though everything 'sprung' from the same origins, according to some, life spread out in amazing degrees... didn't it?

Why didn't an elephant grow wings and fly and why did birds?

They still make books. It's a paper thing.
Yeah, I know. I prefer them. I miss the feel of the pages and getting lost in them. Devouring them. Stopping and going back to read just that one part over and over so the rest of a chapter or entire book became so clear. I only recently acquired an ebook reader. I resisted for a really long time.

You see, my eyes.... I guess I've worn them out.

I'm just a regular guy and have no insurance and what I need in order to really read a book again is beyond my means when I've got a son and too many other things to pay for and take care of. It's just the close in stuff, I can still see leaves on trees move in the slightest breeze from a long way off on a hazy day.

Okay, enough of the forlorn longing and dramatic wording...

LULZ...on a comp or reader I can magnify the crap out of them, so I finally gave in.

I'll get them fixed one day.

Today's my sharpening day for saws, axes, machetes and such, they're still good for that. Plus, I can do that with my eyes closed.

If it was only that way for books, that's what I'd be doing. Yeah, I miss the paper.

That is the limit of your knowledge, you know that elephants cannot fly; therefore, evolution is a false belief system.

Far sighted?

I was, too. Wore bifocals for ages, though tri-focals are what they recommended. A real bitchery getting the proper focal distance for everyday use. A certain range between reading and the distance made it hard to see things like items on a shelf behind the clerk. I would have been lost without my Optivisor for closeup work.

Funny how you can still pick up patterns even if you can't see real clear, although the seeing real clear makes a big difference in doing something.

You are doing good if you can still see those edges while sharpening.

Eyes have developed some astigmatism and other things from age, but I have found it is easier to read a computer screen than a book, even if the letters are smaller. May be the transmitted light and contrast versus reflected off a page.

I don't know if they can fix far sightedness with the new eye surgeries, but if you have several years to go, you may give it a try.

Good eyesight is so important. I will never forget a guy I was in the Army with. A wild man from Maine. Combative, had accidents driving home in a foreign country fairly often. Just kind of out of his head and overreactive. One day he went to the eye doctor and wound up with glasses. Mellowed him out tremendously. He could finally see what he was doing.

I like not having to hold the pages open when I'm eating and being able to instantly look words up and go back and forth between footnotes.

Ebooks are also a lot easier when exercising on an elliptical machine or exercise bike.

I like being able to review a book and then, when I decide I want it, just click "buy".

I can also read in bed without the lights on.

And I read white text on a black background. It's easier on the eyes and the battery.

I don't like the battery going dead on the middle of something when I'm not around power, and the kindle is not great in sunlight. The nook is better for that.

The arrogance of man(kind)! What pressures are on elephants to change?? How about the way they were slaughtered for the ivory to start with? Why is it that only man(kind) could make guns to kill the animals, even though we evolved from the same origins? Why hasn't any other living being been as awful as man(kind) in their useless killing sprees?

Look at what has been achieved in the last 200 years in the life of man(kind) and look what has been achieved in the lives of animals over millions of years and again, look at the arrogance of man(kind) thinking only man(kind) had the need to evolve into what is on life today.
