The Polling Pit / Re: Fear of Death in Different Cultures
« on: May 05, 2009, 02:25:00 PM »
I'd say the US of A, because that's where you'll find the most religious people. It seems unintuitive, but the religious are way more afraid of death then us atheists. Religious people fear that their unstable gods will put them in the place they'd rather not go after death, us atheists do not fear nothing.

I used it yesterday! Fuck people that don't want me to use the word nigger. If they can't see that I am using it in a different context fuck them on their fucking birthday.

Sample 1: "He is a racist, he referred to black people as niggers."

Sample 2: "I hate you nigger!"

One is racist the other is not.

This has actually recently been the subject of a huge, angry public debate over here. The word "neger" has been used to describe black people for a long, long time. It can be used in a derogatory way, a neutral way or a positive way depending of what is communicated. I still use it, it's part of my language, it always has been, a perfectly neutral word to use whenever one would need a word to describe a person with the physical characeteristics originating from Africa south of Sahara.

- Wow, check out that guy's cool pants!
- What guy? The one with the red hair?
- No, the neger

Nothing evil or racist about that, but somehow some pressure groups like African Youth Norway and the so-called "anti racist movement" have gotten the idea that the word itself is racist and evil. For some strange reason I'm supposed to refer to a neger, born and bred Norwegian as an African. That's dumb. And damn intolerant. It's become like if you can claim to be a "minority", it's how you percieve things that matter even if your perception differs from the intention of the people actually saying the words. I really think that's the real racism, to label someone as a "minority" and then using a different set of standards for them than for everyone else.

This is from one of my favorite albums, I Got Next, and also one of my favorite things to quote when i discuss liberty with others. They never see it coming. It's so damn empowering. It doesn't make it any worse by these fantastic words sliding over to one of the best beats I've ever head on "The MC" wich is the next track on the album. I still shout "THE MC! every time someone asks "Who am I?" in a movie or whatever. God, I love that album!

Marius, nothing wrong with the supplements. I take em!

1. Multi-vitamin: fills in the gaps from crappy eating.

2. Iron: Because I run and runners are habitually low in iron.

3. L-Glutamine: Amino acid, also for running. Helps build the muscle back after the run.

4. L-Arganine: Same as above, plus it increases your sex drive.

5. St Johns Wort: Cuz it beats Prozac.

There's no reason to take vitamin supplements if you're an ordinary person with a balanced diet. However, if you're a manic runner who only eat ramen, your diet probably has its deficiencies. Your best bet in that case would be to follow the advice of your doctor, an educated person who actually know what he's talking about, and not the advice a "naturopath" whos only credentials is shit he's pulled out of his own paranoid ass. ;)

The Polling Pit / Re: Can God kill himself?
« on: May 01, 2009, 08:37:53 AM »
Here's the way I learned it from a priest. God is omnipotent, which most people take to mean "all-powerful," that is, He can "do anything." But, what omnipotent may mean is "most powerful." God can do anything that is actually possible to do. Thus, it would by logic be impossible for Him to resolve a contradiction, such as making a rock so heavy He could not lift it, and that sort of nonsense. Nor could He somehow cause 2 + 2 to add up to 5, since it would entail an absurdity.

Is this difference between "all-powerful" and "most powerful" somehow supported by religious doctrine? I think not. Remember, thar be miracles, the definition of a miracle is something that happens that is in fact impossible.
I think the question is on the definition of omnipotence.  I see it as more of an omnipresence.  God created (and is the entirety of) the universe and at said time set the laws of nature, many of which we have discovered/described/conjectured through scientific inquiry.  Everytime you perform an action you are obeying the laws of nature, they are laws you cannot break by definition of pure scientific fact.  2 + 2 = 4 ALWAYS because it is a law of nature.  The question of "Can God Kill Himself?" in my opinion is really the question of "Can God change the laws of nature as he sees fit?".  And in my opinion and from my religious perspective that question is on its face invalid because it demands that God have a human like mind that has whims and desires.  I guess I'm too pantheistic, but it I am what I am and I believe what I believe.

No, the question does not require the godthing to have any qualities what so ever. The question is not "Would god commit suicide on a whim" or "Would god want to commit suicide", the question is just whether he/she/it would be able to in any circumstance. Could a god powerful enough to create the universe and the laws of nature be powerful enough to rid said universe of his/hers/its own existence?

At the same time, the god described in works like the bible is a very antropomorphic god who quite clearly has human feelings like rage, and acts on whims. He/she/it makes mistakes, and then corrects them by doing impossible things. The bible even says that the humans are created in the god's image, and so it would not be unreasonable to portray him/her/it with suicidal whims and desires in a thought experiment.

You're obviously too pantheistic, or perhaps deistic. But I kinda like that. theists have a tendency to be difficult to deal with :P

The so-called anti-racists over here has found a good term for such cases: Subconcious racist. The idea is that if you're white, you are really a racist wether you know it or not. This term was coined after a media frenzy a couple of years ago, when a somali who got knocked down by another black dude in a park, was refused help by the ambulance that arrived on the scene. This whole thing turned into a shitstorm in the media that lasted for a year or so, and the ambulance personell involved were publicly denounced as racists by everyone from pressure groups to parliament members to cabinet members. They were found to have acted racist by the state's ombudsman for discrimination in a process that was nowhere near anything that could resemble a trial.
The farce actually culminated in ambulances being obstructed on their way to accident scenes by cars and pedestrians, and random personell recieved threats by random people.

After the persecution had been going on for a long time, the other side of the story finally got out. The personell involved had misjudged the situation and thought the somali was really high on something, and did not see that he was actually severely injured from knocking his head on the ground in the fall. Shit happens, people are sometimes wrong.

These guys had been working for ten and fifteen years for the ambulance service with absolutely no complaints and no accusations of racism. That's when the evil fucking morons in the so-called anti-racist movement coined the term subconcious racist, so that they could be right even when they were wrong. Fucking assholes!

Every product and service that is provided in the market place voluntarily is good, whether you agree with it or not.  You are free to use free speech to criticize those quacks, but using their quackery as an excuse to stop short of anything but outright condemnation of this government crime is wrong!

Rational people may not benefit from irrational products and services, but rational people benefit from irrational people who voluntarily choose to believe in that stupid crap.  Money derives its value from the things people are able to buy with it.  The part-time cashier lady in the last supermarket you shopped at might believe in that quackery, and that is her motivation to work 30 hours that week instead of 28.  This tiny droplet in the ocean of your local labor market makes running a supermarket a bit more efficient, and thanks to competition some of that savings might be passed on to you.


If you commit a fraud, then you have broken the NAP. Fraud has no place in a free market.

I am of course totally against government goons raiding anyone, but at the same time I find it hard to shed any tears for quacks and snake oil salesmen getting raided.

So i guess Vitamins don't cure anything?, even though there are studies that show they do like scurvy ARrrrrr!

If i got scurvy ill eat some oranges, or in my case im allergic to citrus products so ill get some vitamins


Sure, vitamins are good, Kompressor says so.

Lets just hope Sam hasn't  been thinking about "sex" while simultaneously thinking about how the court system is "full" of a bunch of "assholes".  The universe might missinterpret his desires and give him the short end of the stick.


Wouldn't the universe's bending to his will for manmeat up the hind quarters mean that that was what he really, subconciously, wanted in the first place?

I am looking for a bit of feed back here. Do I need therapy?

You live in a country where the least respected minority, according to surveys, are people who do not believe in any god. You live in a country where a person has to express a belief in a god to be elected. You live in a country where christian fascists are trying as hard as they can to kick science and reason out of the schools. You don't need therapy, these fucking morons need to hear how incredibly ridiculous their dangerous superstitions are. Give'em hell!

two more days til Ubuntu 9.04



I upgraded my Xubuntu to 9.04 yesterday, and so far the only change around here is that the native Firefox is actually usuable., and that Java eats a whole lot more memory when i run Azureus/Vuze than it did under 8.04.

I don't understand. How does your dinner involve chicken?

I was thinking about chicken while at school because I was hungry.

Then for some reason chicken is on the menu that night.

I'm not saying I bent the universe to my will, but it did remind me of LoA

It reminds me of the fact that an average american eats 81 pounds of chicken per year.
