Out of the Blue

Frans continues to work hard on behind-the-scenes stuff here, but some of it bubbled to the surface yesterday, as some new features on the forums, where there's an easier quoting option, as well as a more noticeable reference to the forum rules.

Also, as noted on Darwin Online, today is the 150th anniversary of the release of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Thanks to Frans for that as well.

It takes faith to believe in God, Jesus, evolution(macro), and even nothing(atheist). This world and its people coming from nothing? To many precise calculations to come from a random event. A few degrees closer to the sun and earth would be inhabitable. A few degrees the other way and it would be to cold for life. Then look at biology and the structure of life. There is a God if we want to believe in Him or not.

Erm....no. You are wrong on a few points here.

It takes faith to believe in God and & Jesus and Santa and all that Ill grant you that. But on the other two points you are wrong my friend.

Belief in evolution is not required, read a little bit about the scientific method before making statements like that.

Do you believe that the earth is flat?

Atheism is the lack of belief. You know? The opposite of belief? Savy?

Hellslayer, do you ever come to Bluesnews, a games site, btw, to discuss, ya know, games?

There are plenty of religious and theological web forums if that is what trips your trigger. Stop trying to "convert" people on a damn games website.

Hi and welcome to the randomness of the universe. Throw 6 dice and it may be unlikely that you get six ones or six sixes, but regardless of how the dice land you get a result - in this case life or no life. And what about several extinction level events over the last several billion years? Is that god just messing around?

It takes intelligence and more importantly, courage and strength, to step out of the dark shadow of the ignorance of religion and faith and into the light of science and reason, and realize that there most likely is no god(s). The good news is that means you can get on with your life without worrying about some supernatural father figure waiting to punish you horribly for not worshiping him like some mindless slave. Ending religion and slavish devotion to the supernatural is the only way this species is going to survive and move forward.

Bummer. Looks like I got the used ps3 just in time!

While watching streaming video from my pc:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907534

The funny thing is I hardly used my xbox (in my mind).
I have had it for about 1.5 years, and only recently really started to use it. Lucky for me - the service is free.

And the surprising part.....I waited until March of 2008 to buy one, as it is the "NEW" hardware. The Falcon I think...the one everyone said to get. hehehehe

You know....I did play MW2 most recently.....that fuggin game broke my xbox!!! ANOTHER REASON TO HATE THAT GAME! hahahahaha

I think I am going to get a new ps3 to go with my used one that plays ps1 and ps2 games - so many cheap deals on those 120gb ones.....

When a universe such as ours has an infinite scope and size it doesn't take god to pull off life. It boggles my mind how one such as yourself can make such definitive conclusions about the whole of existence when you've experienced literally none of it. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Quick survey. How many numbers can you honestly remember in Pi? (No Google cheating!)

That Bioshock cosplay at the Georgia Aquarium is awesome! I've been going through the guy's site and he makes some sweet props. Check it out, the Portal gun! Wicked!

I know for a fact Darwin was a regular joe, nevermind scientist. He was often down at the village pub tying one on, getting into fistfights, wenching etc. In fact it was in a drunken stupor he first came across the idea of evolution! He couldn't help but note that as he got progressively more drunk over the evening how the ugly women kept evolving into better and better looking women! And for the record, yeah, he hit that that shit like Ike hit Tina!

Have you tried Chrome?

I just did and that works very well. Too bad I can't copy my passwords over from Firefox 3.5.5 into Chrome.

Show passwords in firefox, then print screen - dump in a doc.

Those BioShock pics are some of the coolest pics I have seen in a long time. Amazing colors and just creepy!

The only instances in which I am ever required to use pi are those instances during which I have my TI 89 Titanium, and it remembers a whole hell of a lot more digits than I.
