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.

Well, I don't have a car. My name is available online in many locations, G+ likes to advertise that, lots of people like to post their real world names in many locations as well. There's also LinkedIn, the place to get connected with professionals of all type, where you post your real name and phone number so they can contact you for job offers.

I know you're new to the concept of global communications, but you can't be that naive. Your information is also available to anyone with even a small amount of computer literacy, anonymity is, and always has been, an illusion, nothing more. Topix staff have record of your IP address, and can trace it to your physical location or mobile device, if they wanted to. Every website you ever post on can. It is now standard practice to record IP addresses of everyone that posts, in case the authorities request it. You ISP masks the exact location within reason, as it's part of their contract most times, but with a simple court order you can get that information from them.

Your perspective is completely faulty. You and Dave.
http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/glance/table...
You see a headline and think that represents the current state of the whole world, neglecting to realize, it's just a headline, one story in one location.
A complete list of the wars in the world too, to demonstrate that this is the most peaceful time in all of history:
http://www.warsintheworld.com/...
Take a sampling of violent crimes in the news from 1980 and it's more than double what you see today. Unless you live in a cave, you can walk down the street today in most civilized countries without being armed and you'll not be shot, stabbed, robbed, or worse, mostly because all the people who use to do that are too busy playing video games or surfing the net for free porn now. The sharp downward trend in violence coincided with two pivotal points in history, the advent of the world wide internet, and a saturation in violent video games. Yes, I have studied this phenomenon, and yes it was to defend the use of technology and video games in the modern era.
You need to learn how to do actual research instead of listening to media, media sensationalizes, the real information is in the trends and the facts. Statistical analysis leads to the conclusion that the more technology that is available, the more peaceful and secure we become.
So the secret is to keep them chained to their computers?

Your perspectives are a bit warped.

Oh, BTW, wasn't that long ago you didn't have to worry much about someone stealing your identity, or cleaning out your bank account. Yep, those computers sure made the world safer and more secure on the personal level.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that each year approximately one million people die from suicide, which represents a global mortality rate of 16 people per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds. It is predicted that by 2020 the rate of death will increase to one every 20 seconds.
The WHO further reports that:
In the last 45 years suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide. Suicide is now among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15-44 (male and female). Suicide attempts are up to 20 times more frequent than completed suicides.
Although suicide rates have traditionally been highest amongst elderly males, rates among young people have been increasing to such an extent that they are now the group at highest risk in a third of all countries.
Mental health disorders (particularly depression and substance abuse) are associated with more than 90% of all cases of suicide.
However, suicide results from many complex sociocultural factors and is more likely to occur during periods of socioeconomic, family and individual crisis (e.g. loss of a loved one, unemployment, sexual orientation, difficulties with developing one's identity, disassociation from one's community or other social/belief group, and honour)
You are not helping your case at all by attributing suicide to violence. Not to mention, 100,000 people is less than 1% of 8,000,000,000. Mental health, again, a completely different topic, especially depression which is the complete opposite of violence. You are in more danger of yourself than of a stranger, and that's all you have proven, which supports my original point. Thank you.

A perception is judging?
If you see someone missing a limb. Is that considered judging? No itís a perception or an observation.
Judging is condemning someone. I donít recall saying that she is going to burn in hell.
No, but judgment can be camouflaged as perception.

How did you see her fragile heart, do you have God vision?

Oh, so you don't really feel safe.

"Go find it" wasn't an acceptable answer of who you are, Koder. If you feel so safe, give out your info...

Or don't. And prove that you don't feel so safe.

2010, the same year they added I believe at least 10 "conditions" to the federal guidelines of what is "mental illness." Not a good story to depend on, since it ignores that fact.
George Bush, Sr, added several as well during his presidency, there was a spike in "mental illness" of the general public then as well.

Me's think you are Catcher.

A beautiful, young and attractive woman in her 20ís is going to be consumed by boyfriends, and life in general. At least that is what I believe.

You take on the same causes as Catcher which sort of gives you away. Also taking in the fact he loves to pretend he is a woman.
