To be fair trying to bring two totally different views on the origins of the universe and compromising big parts of both to make them fit together just to try to be a peacemaker and say “both are right” is not really scientific.(or agnostic)
Having examined both sides of the evolution vs creation debate, there really is no way to have both without severely compromising at least one of them. Additionally when you boil it down both have SEVERE lack of proof or evidence supporting them. Evolutionists say they haven’t found it yet or time destroyed it and Creationists say God willed it to be that way or something.
For me, and maybe because I’m a math and probability addict, I cannot see the universe or at least earth coming to its present state without at least some intelligent presence playing a part, things are WAY too complex. Agnosticism is just the most logical viewpoint after you get past the fanatics on both sides.(Religion isn’t illogical, but requires faith not just logic)
TBH, many agnostics would be Christians if it weren’t for Christians like in the above picture.
I don’t quite get the problem with logic…
But I really want to try that now
Notice the wall behind Gwyndolyn. The fight generally involves him warping down a never-ending hallway, but if you keep going it does eventually end, at which case he just stand in place casting. Few players know this as it takes some time to reach the wall.
The more you know
Few people will see this picture, but…
Yea it is either friendship, love, infatuation, or Limerence.
When you find infatuation, you’ll think its love
When you find Limerence, you’ll think its insanity
When you find love, you may think its friendship
What book? I really want to read this
Just saying, as a “Brony” it is honestly one of the best and most healthy fandoms I have ever seen or been a part of. The love of a show is nothing new or is wrong, I have seen weddings with INTENSE Dr. Who themes that while I wouldn’t want for myself, are rather cool.
Now I put Brony in quotation marks because my interest waxes and wanes. I have been watching it with my fiance recently, but have stopped checking EQD and other MLP sites mostly. Other Bronies I have met have been pretty great guys, and honestly I consider it an honor to be included in such a great fandom.
The only thing is that people judge the fandom too quickly, though admittedly almost all of us did. I do not hide my taste for the show, yet don’t tell everyone I meet. I guess it strikes a nerve when I see people poke fun at Bronies and treat themselves as helpless manchildren, when most are great people with successful lives.
To be fair, there is a good amount of evidence for what creationists claim, and many holes in the theory of evolution(at least when I learned it growing up); this from someone who has known smart people from both sides. I have met many who argue intelligently and well for their side and they are pleasant to be with, but then there are others who feel they have to “crusade” against the opposite side.(and I am speaking about both sides)
Also before this turns into some religious debate, the cringe-worthy part is not what they believe, but what they did to their car. The same would apply to anyone who would do this as a Sony/Nintendo fanboy attacking Microsoft, or someone bashing Pokemon X because they like Y and putting it on their car.
I actually don’t recognize this couch, but I’m okay with that.

I saw it in person, they basically abducted a bunch of women to be their wives. It wouldn’t exactly be like physical rape, but more abduction and holding them against their will that leads to eventual sex.
Then again many cultures in that era believed in arranged marriages, so they might not have minded nearly as much….
I feel a little dirty for asking this, but source? I am honestly curious if this is a hentai, a silly mature-humored manga, or fake.
I was watching some Futurama last night, and saw something rather scary. For those who are interested, go watch the first 5 minutes of Overclockwise.
For those who are too lazy, the beginning of the episode has three of the main characters(one of which is a robot) sit down to play their “Mom’s Xcube.” They do not use a controller, only a camera. After the robot fails at the game, he gets “overclocked” and he defeats Mom’s three sons. She then uses the console to track them down, using the camera to spy on them. Spying on them, she gets evidence that sends them to court and they barely escape prison/death.
The parallels are scary to say the least…
So something moves based on your proximity to it?
Haven’t we had that since most of the people reading this were born?
Who has ever gone computer peripheral shopping and thought “Ooh! That keyboard is made by Microsoft, it must be great quality!”? Honestly if it wasn’t for the huge fanboy following they had the red ring of death fiasco would have done them in. Xboxes don’t really sell anywhere but America, and with both Nintendo and Sony outperforming them everywhere else.
When I was little, I wanted a console for what games it offered. My first console was an N64 and I loved it. However as I got a little older I realized that games are enabled to be better via better technology, and I got a PS2, and I loved it. When the PS3 came out, I started to realize the politics of video games, and how important developers are. I got a PS3 when it came out, and shortly after a good quality laptop, and I still love them.
Xbox is losing “exclusive rights” to more and more of their game developers, their paid online services pale in comparison to almost every other free one on the PC and other consoles, and now that Xbox fanboys are maturing and learning to make decisions for themselves, Microsoft will have to either pump money into Xbox or really pull a rabbit out of their hat.
I’ve used it for years. It is probably my overall most used site. I think I’ve been using it close to 10 years…
@nekomichi: While I’m not saying that your GF wasn’t discriminated against, but how do you know she was? Did they hire every applicant except for your GF? Do you know for what reasons they hired someone else and not her? One applicant may have previously worked in clothing retail, another may have a recommendation, etc. I’m sure your GF is very nice, a wonderful person, and a master of clothing retail, but that can be hard to gleam from a brief interview.
Too many times have I spoken with people who didn’t get the position they wanted, and 9 times out of 10 they claim they were the most qualified person, they were discriminated against, or some other complaint. There have been times when I think they made the right choice because the person is crap, and other times I think that they should have chosen my friend. However that is because I KNOW the person, their good and bad. Usually when I look at it from the position of an interviewer or manager, I can see why someone wasn’t chosen even though they may have been the best choice. It isn’t their fault, they just don’t know them as well as I do. Now I have seen discrimination, but with how much incentive there is to NOT discriminate based on gender/race/age/etc to the extent it doesn’t hinder the company, it usually isn’t the case.
He isn’t saying that “I hate fat and ugly people just because I’m a jerk” he is saying that the company caters to people who wants to spend gobs of money to “look good.” Said people are those who value their looks over other aspects of their life, aka the “popular crowd.” All he is saying is that his company caters to popular and good looking people, and he makes business decisions based on looks because customers do the same. I’m sure I’ll get down-voted for this, but I thought it should be said.
TLDR: His company is “discriminatory” not because he is shallow, but because their customers are.
She must be a decedent of Shaggy or Scooby Doo
That was really weird. Good movie, but some parts just seem lazy…
Why do I feel like I should know this….
I’m not trying to start a flame war or anything, simply expressing my frustration at Microsoft at yet another blunder.
I didn’t buy an Xbox360 because of the high failure rate and instead bought a PS3, and while I’m sure they won’t have that problem this time around, with this I now doubt I’ll get the 720 either. The internet I have atm is unstable and in the case of it going out, I don’t want to be unable to play MY console.
My solution: Buy a PS4, spend maybe $50 to upgrade your PC, and now you will be able to play 99% of games that will be coming out on the 720.
1. If the bible is true, then God exists, and if an omnipotent God specifically asked you to do something as a test of faith, you should probably do it.
2. If the bible isn’t true, then Abraham is as fiction/real as God is, then see 1.
