Re: 1003: "Adam and Eve"

Anyone who tries to argue for or against religion is introducing their own bias, because it is either not observation based or is so far unobservable. You can only make weak arguments either way. The strongest position is “I don’t know, but for now I am going to assume...” This is why I find it so ...

Re: 1003: "Adam and Eve"

Proponents of religion do more to discredit their beliefs than their opponents do. Many are unwilling to accept that any aspect of their beliefs can be false, and refuse to accept overwhelming proof to the contrary. At the time the events of the bible took place, no one understood the mechanics of t...

Re: 0991: "Phantom Menace"

My bet was on today's comic being about SOPA. I guess there have been a lot of file sharing comics though.

Re: 0936: "Password Strength"

I agree that the original poster was overstating the security, but I think they do have a valid point about using unicode characters. I was simply pointing out that in most (if not all) cases, a brute force attack won't even include the appropriate key space - in those cases, it literally will neve...
