okay Amillennialist, you raise interesting points, so can you forget about everyone against you in this thread and tell me in detail how you think humans ended up in earth? were humans anywhere else before earth?

3. Motorola Droid Feb 6, 2010, 15:34 rocketpcguy
 
i was thinking about buying the motorola droid (actually the milestone, as it is known in Europe). i know that some people here like it (at least sepharo & bucky), but anyone know about the call quality? they say the quality sounds good from the droid, but the other end hears echoed, distant or garbled voice:

We observe Life arise only from Life and Life's programs.

We observe Life reproduce only after its own kinds.

We observe program arise only from programmers or their programs.

We observe that the living cell is a Von-Neumann-type, metabolic machine.

We observe that machines arise only from designers/engineers.

(this is from my biology lecturer, i cannot take credit:)

So things can only exist if a designer created them? Then who created God?

If you find it so hard to believe that a simple single celled organism could have come up by chance in billions of years in one of the billons of trillions of star systems ( http://byokan.net/images/2009/ucyu/spaceb.jpg ) , then why do you not hesitate in believing that a infinitely great and somehow good and literate being just came out of nowhere without being born or created?

Intelligent creatures evolving out simpler creatures in billions of years is a more likely explanation of the current system of life than one intelligent creature created by chance spontaneously, even without taking paleontological and DNA evidence into account.

Amillennialist: you are not a christian. Christians need to follow the bible, and i don't see you killing and stoning people to death. I guess if you were a real christian, you wouldn't be too different from Mohammad followers.

Leviticus 20:9
If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death.
20:10 If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.

20:13 If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death.
Deuteronomy 22:20-1 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house.

Exodus 35:2
For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death.

Deuteronomy 7:1-2 When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Exodus 21:20-21 If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

1 Peter 2:18 Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.

i don't like amazon's attitude with the kindle. the DRM is so deep, and ended up with problems like:
http://www.geardiary.com/2009/06/19/kindles-drm-rears-its-ugly-head-and-it-is-ugly/
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/18/technology/companies/18amazon.html

what's the point of such control, when the kindle books are pirated & converted everyday on warez sites? it's only hurting people who spend money to rent these books, not the ones who get the whole thing for free.

yeah, leaving the UGO ads was good, any low bandwidth replacement would do.

BTW: anyone know of any instrumental music, free or otherwise, that's like the one running the flood fill game?

13. ‘Lottery winner’ causes riot at Oct 15, 2009, 16:57 rocketpcguy
 
"She was telling people she won $1.5 million," Deakins said. "But it ends up she didn't win anything. She had no money to pay for anything." ... That's when angry customers, realizing they weren't getting free coats, began throwing merchandise on the floor and grabbing clothes without paying for them, Nace said.

"Everybody was like, 'I still want my free stuff,' and that started the riot," he said. "It looks like (Hurricane) Katrina went ‘Lottery winner’ causes riot at coat store.through the store."

i'm lost for words. how selfish and stupid can people be?

1. Android to overtake iPhone in 2012 Oct 10, 2009, 03:21 rocketpcguy
 
does anyone here have the Android? Or the palm pre? How is it?

from the videos, Android looks very slow (esp. the web browser, it's like 1 fps when zoom-out+panning), and the interface is not very slick. the palm pre looks amazing and fast though (except for the initial app launch).
