Re: Draw Mohammad Day

I have to agree with crius and the others. There is fine line between protesting your freedom of speech and just doing stuff that offends people. If you are trying to make a point by drawing a respectable depiction of Mohammed just to make a point about free speech, I'll support that. If you are try...

Re: Facebook banned in Pakistan

Well...I mean, yes free speech is important. But what is draw muhammad day really achieving? Honestly your just shutting down a form of speech in Muslim countries, you knew it would happen, so honestly you're kind of attacking free speech. also, by doing that you could trigger another wave of violen...

Re: Facebook banned in Pakistan

I mean, I understand that it's social networking and the creation of this group was by people not necessarily involved with Facebook as employees or whatever. But you have to understand that "Draw Muhammad Day" is deeply offensive. It's like "Let's see who can make the best obama as h...

Re: Christian is not a religion?

I get it. Yet at the same time I think it is odd that you assume that those who put this up were thinking "hehe we will convert the masses." In reality I think it was more like this "We'll make sure they remember the dead, we'll put up this cross in the desert." Yes, they probabl...

Three Rules to Live By

Okay, let's imagine you were selected to rule the world. the one condition is that you can create three overarching uber-laws. What would your three laws be? What punishments would you inflict upon those who fail to follow them. I'm hoping to dig out the basic precepts people think are important. My...

Re: Christian is not a religion?

I wan't arguing about the legal challenge, I was merely talking about my view of the whole situation. I know it's a bit naive, and unlikely to be a legitimate way to run society, but I've always thought that the most important rules are. a) Avoid suffering. b) Use common sense. c) Respect people (b ...

Re: Christian is not a religion?

I'm sorry, I'm a devout (wait what...?) atheist, but this disgusts me to no end. Yes, separation of church and state is good. Of course I support that. But honestly? you're attacking a war memorial HAVE YOU NO FUCKIN' SHAME!? I mean...yes...it's a religious symbol. But seriously?

Re: People's mate preferences are racist. Do we care?

As I said, I think it's bad that people have those preferences (in so far as other's get shafted by that). I'm merely stating my gut revulsion for the severe end of the solution. May I ask what you think is a good way to go about fixing this? Should we tax all movies that don't have an unorthodox ra...

Re: People's mate preferences are racist. Do we care?

I'm sorry, but trying to force people to enter relationships of a sexual kind with people they aren't interested in is...well...rape. I know, I know it sounds bad, but sexual preferences are not something we should be trying to change. I know that a lot of it is social conditioning, I know that's ba...

Re: Religious Tolerance in School

My school is a secular privates school (although we were originally founded by Jews whose kids couldn't attend any other schools). Although very few people actively identify themselves as atheist it is clear that many are irreligious. There has never been a question about whether or not evolution sh...

Re: Pondering a Potential function (Does it exist)

Well, okay, but actually I don't quite understand how an integral is easier to do with this than a derivative. Derivative refers to a single point (well, infinitesimal interval) so the discontinuities of the sign function are rather unimportant, especially since at the point where the sign function ...

Pondering a Potential function (Does it exist)

So, I've recently been pondering a function which a essentially indicates the sign of a number. It outputs 1 if the number is positive and negative one if it's negative, this function doesn't exist at zero. The function can be written as follows (i will continue to call it m throughout this post m(x...
