Do you find it hypocritical that the same half of the country that says Walmart and McDonalds employees don't deserve $15/hr are the same ones who expect manufacturing jobs to stay in America at $35/hr?

Anybody want to explain to me how pushing a button on an assembly line is SOOOO much more important / difficult than flipping burgers?

I heard a Canadian set a world record for hitting someone from 11,000 feet away.

Is it the world record for "Closest a Canadian has ever been to a battle"? 

I kid. I kid.

abortabortabort "a cult ideology disguised as religion" Ya. That's all religions. If you go someplace once a week and stand in a group facing a person who tells you what to believe and then sing songs that reinforce that while your children are in another room learning versions they can understand what do you think you are a part of?

The only difference between a cult and a religion is numbers. Mormons were a cult, now they are a religion.

melcervini Are you aware that the Muslim, Jewish, and Christian god is the same dude?

abortabortabort What I see is you saying that this asshole, who of course is an asshole, is representative of 1.2 billion people.

I don't want to disrupt your world view at all, but does the KKK and their burning crosses represent Christians as a whole? How about the looting, raping, murdering anti-balaka in Africa? The massacres in Bosnia? Robert Lewis Dear? 

Let me guess... no right? When Christians do horrible things it doesn't reflect Christianity, but when Muslims do horrible things it reflects Islam. That is what makes you a bigot.

monkwarrior Because when you apply the scientific method to religion independently and without prior held beliefs and confirmation bias you come to the same conclusion. Its what happens when you aren't brainwashed. 

I don't go and listen to someone preach anti-theism every sunday and then go into chatrooms and regurgitate what has been bored into my brain since I was born. If I'm making an argument others have made in the past its just because I came to the same conclusion independently.

Here's the thing. I have no vested interest in there not being a god. In fact, I have given religion a chance. Couple different occasions. I went to church service on sundays and youth bible studies on wednesdays for like 6 months in my 20s. I even chaperoned a bible camp. I would have preferred to have been converted. I would have loved to come out of it faithful. So I wasn't actively biased. 

You, on the other hand, NEED to believe. Your entire world view is based on it. You can't accept the possibility that it is bullshit and because of that you've probably never allowed yourself to look at it with critical thought.

monkwarrior Pretty much all my thoughts are original. I don't go someplace every week to have someone tell me what to believe. I wasn't systematically told what to believe since I was born. I don't sing songs to reinforce them. Like it or not the indoctrination of church uses the exact same practices as the brainwashing of a cult. Don't worry. It totally isn't though....

squrlz4ever I tend to not buy things that I think might be knocked off. Plus I read reviews. I've gotten knockoffs before and they tend to be pretty easy to notice. Amazon's return policy is stellar though, so I don't worry too much.

I do wonder how Amazon gets away with selling so many knockoffs especially of patented stuff. There must be some loophole they utilize.

squrlz4ever It JUST came out. I bought, its free. Seems like it might be a cool technological touchstone. It is neat to be able to ask it questions. Not sure if we'll shop with it. However, I don't know why you think everything is 20% more expensive. I buy pretty much everything other than groceries from amazon and it is almost always cheaper, sometimes by a lot.

monkwarrior You are so predictable and unoriginal. I suppose that is fertile ground for your beliefs. Have you ever had an original thought?

Check out the amazon dash wand. $20 for prime members with a $20 refund, so free. 

You can ask it questions like how many inches are in a mile, or what the weather forecast is. Plus you can tell it what you want to order or scan bar codes and it automatically orders it. Will even tell you jokes.
