    I like when creationists cite the bible as factual proof against evolution.

    I had to read little clips from it for certain reading comprehension tests and the way it was written annoys me so much. And I looked up the full story in the begining of the year because I was considering writing my little summer reading thing on it. It just wasn't too great.

    I dunno, Obama, Britney sPears & Paris Hilton do come across as Messiahs to me...

    Regarding 1984, I once wrote a parody of Bowling 4 Soup's "1985" about it.

    Any pro-Obama talking point.

    Bush would have a better chance of getting assasinated then Obama probably. There was some like thing I saw with the years of when certain presidents got assasinated and the next year in that pattern when I saw it fell into Bush's reign. Pleanty of other reasons of course, but pretty much he would get killed before Obama

    There would be twice the uproar over the assasination of a black president than a white one.

    Plus I don't think anyone would be all that shocked if Bush was knocked off.

    Kittenclaw82 (4:30:50 PM): they absorbed the morrigan into mary
    moderatelywell (4:30:53 PM): the whole gender superiority thing pisses me off
    Kittenclaw82 (4:30:56 PM): and the druids were feminists, once again the brits are responsible for something horrible. I bet they bomb pearl harbor again soon, or something else stupid.
    moderatelywell (4:31:07 PM): aye
    moderatelywell (4:31:10 PM): it irritates me
    Kittenclaw82 (4:31:14 PM): it is annoying
    Kittenclaw82 (4:31:21 PM): equality really means superiority to so many
    moderatelywell (4:31:27 PM): ya
    Kittenclaw82 (4:31:29 PM): there isn't any such thing as equality and there never will be
    moderatelywell (4:31:37 PM): it seems like were going to be fighting for eternity
    Kittenclaw82 (4:31:39 PM): someone will always think they are better
    moderatelywell (4:31:54 PM): we'll never explore space and the ocean properly because were to busy fighting over silly shit

    Kittenclaw82 (4:32:39 PM): ...
    moderatelywell (4:32:42 PM): whatever fuels exploration
    Kittenclaw82 (4:32:49 PM): I guess man
    moderatelywell (4:32:49 PM): doesnt bother me that much
    Kittenclaw82 (4:32:56 PM): its just ... weird
    moderatelywell (4:33:00 PM): ya
    Kittenclaw82 (4:33:04 PM): its one of those concepts I cant wrap my head about
    moderatelywell (4:33:13 PM): what living in space?
    moderatelywell (4:33:21 PM): i see it as a necessity
    Kittenclaw82 (4:33:29 PM): setting up space programs to own real estate in space
    Kittenclaw82 (4:33:36 PM): sort of like owning a concept
    moderatelywell (4:33:41 PM): if we can spread into space then were virtually unextinctable
    moderatelywell (4:34:03 PM): a concept mentioned in doctor who
    moderatelywell (4:34:18 PM): when the doctor is willing to destroy every human on earth to destroy the daleks
    moderatelywell (4:34:31 PM): he says dont worry theres humans all over the universe they'll survive
    moderatelywell (4:34:49 PM): you should watch the show
    Kittenclaw82 (4:35:01 PM): might one day
    Kittenclaw82 (4:35:10 PM): but all it takes is an alien race with a grudge
    moderatelywell (4:35:15 PM): if you ignore the fact that a silly brain looking thing inside a trash can looking thing is indestructible killing machine its an awesome show
    moderatelywell (4:35:23 PM): thats where the doctor comes in lol
    Kittenclaw82 (4:35:27 PM): someone stronger and more powerful, I mean if we are talking survival theories, with our propensity to piss people off...
    moderatelywell (4:35:41 PM): ya
    moderatelywell (4:36:12 PM): i dont really think we have that much to worry about
    Kittenclaw82 (4:36:22 PM): probably not
    Kittenclaw82 (4:36:28 PM): I mean why wouldnt they make contact?
    moderatelywell (4:36:32 PM): if anythings going to kill us its going to be us or nature
    moderatelywell (4:36:38 PM): because they cant
    Kittenclaw82 (4:36:39 PM): captain francis says that they have and that the government is hiding it
    moderatelywell (4:36:47 PM): i accept the possibility that there could be alien species
    moderatelywell (4:36:57 PM): but the chances that they are intelligent tool users is low
    Kittenclaw82 (4:37:14 PM): well, its probably the same chance we had at that
    moderatelywell (4:37:20 PM): the chances that another species would evolve like us on another planet is low
    moderatelywell (4:37:32 PM): well were here so the chance of us is 100%
    moderatelywell (4:37:33 PM): lol
    Kittenclaw82 (4:37:39 PM): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDL02th72u4 sweet song
    moderatelywell (4:37:43 PM): but were here because of certain events
    moderatelywell (4:37:47 PM): like the dinosaurs being killed
    moderatelywell (4:37:52 PM): if they hadnt we wouldnt be here
    Kittenclaw82 (4:38:25 PM): Well, yes. But its egotistical to assume that some other species couldnt have gotten lucky as well with the practically endless universe we seem to live in
    moderatelywell (4:38:28 PM): if the universe rebooted like a computer everything would likely evolve a completely different way
    moderatelywell (4:38:38 PM): true
    Kittenclaw82 (4:38:42 PM): man does have an infinite capacity for ego though
    moderatelywell (4:38:44 PM): btu even if there lucky
    moderatelywell (4:38:47 PM): there as far from us as we are from them
    Kittenclaw82 (4:38:48 PM): have you ever considered how prideful we are?
    moderatelywell (4:38:58 PM): they havnt made contact with us for the same reason we havnt made contact with them
    moderatelywell (4:38:59 PM): we cant
    moderatelywell (4:39:00 PM): lol
    moderatelywell (4:39:05 PM): oh yes
    Kittenclaw82 (4:39:11 PM): they could be older as a civilization
    Kittenclaw82 (4:39:29 PM): also have you considered that we were basically in a rut for thousands upon thousands of years... progressing slowly
    moderatelywell (4:39:31 PM): ya but they could also have intelligence crippling religions
    moderatelywell (4:39:39 PM): exactly
    Kittenclaw82 (4:39:42 PM): then BAM about 100 years ago we just started advancing at a massive rate
    moderatelywell (4:39:49 PM): were in a different dark age
    moderatelywell (4:40:01 PM): i consider it less of a boom
    moderatelywell (4:40:08 PM): a boom do to circumstances changing
    moderatelywell (4:40:20 PM): people got the freedom to dream
    moderatelywell (4:40:32 PM): for those thousands of years we were mostly serfs
    Kittenclaw82 (4:40:38 PM): true
    moderatelywell (4:40:43 PM): hungry people dont think of much but food
    Kittenclaw82 (4:40:45 PM): we still are
    moderatelywell (4:40:53 PM): some more than others
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:05 PM): I mean the masses are basically sheeplish serfs
    moderatelywell (4:41:14 PM): ya
    moderatelywell (4:41:21 PM): like i said were in a different type of dark age
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:34 PM): we worship machines now
    moderatelywell (4:41:37 PM): but once we got out of the religions dark age we discovered neat things like electricity
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:37 PM): technology
    moderatelywell (4:41:41 PM): ya
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:50 PM): as long as we do there will be more machines
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:52 PM): better machines
    Kittenclaw82 (4:41:56 PM): better technology
    moderatelywell (4:42:02 PM): once people quit thinking lighting is the wrath of god neat stuff happens
    Kittenclaw82 (4:42:10 PM): yeah
    moderatelywell (4:42:28 PM): people who think gods in control will never innovate
    moderatelywell (4:42:41 PM): whats the point if your in no control of your destingy
    moderatelywell (4:42:55 PM): why do i throw g's in words where they dont belong
    Kittenclaw82 (4:43:06 PM): well, I sort of think that certain things are unavoidable
    Kittenclaw82 (4:43:12 PM): its the ing trap
    moderatelywell (4:43:20 PM): ya
    moderatelywell (4:43:24 PM): i do it subconsciously
    Kittenclaw82 (4:43:25 PM): I do that, most times when you put in together its followed by a g
    moderatelywell (4:43:50 PM): there are things unavoidable but for the most point your in control of your own life
    Kittenclaw82 (4:44:02 PM): Sure, no one to blame but you
    Kittenclaw82 (4:44:07 PM): but down that road lies self loathing
    moderatelywell (4:44:07 PM): someone else is certainly not in control
    Kittenclaw82 (4:44:14 PM): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk-7n...eature=related
    Kittenclaw82 (4:44:18 PM): this is a good ass song
    moderatelywell (4:44:22 PM): i am much happier thinking im in control
    Kittenclaw82 (4:44:46 PM): but then all your faults are your own, not satans, I think thats why christianity exists, and why there is one great meddling enemy
    moderatelywell (4:44:54 PM): i always thought the destiny myth depressing
    moderatelywell (4:44:59 PM): im fine with that
    moderatelywell (4:45:08 PM): if all my faults are my fault i can fix them
    Kittenclaw82 (4:45:15 PM): most people would probably find it comforting, but they dont realize that would mean god intended certain people to go to hell
    moderatelywell (4:45:26 PM): right
    Kittenclaw82 (4:45:44 PM): some huge mythical man sitting on a throne rubbing his white beard and shaking his head sadly because little Sally is doomed to hell
    Kittenclaw82 (4:46:15 PM): and you ask a christian about that and they wig out
    Kittenclaw82 (4:46:18 PM): NO GOD DOESNT MEAN THAT
    Kittenclaw82 (4:46:21 PM): but thats what predestiny means!
    Kittenclaw82 (4:47:31 PM): man our conversations usually go in circles, we went from people are stupid to religion, to space, to aliens, to the fate of mankind, to religion

    in a year where we saw FOX news stories about barack obama, i think blaming the unions for the state of the auto industry might take the cake for worst talking point of the year

    people trying to say we don't have to give constitutional rights to gitmo detainees etc because they are enemy combatants.

    these are the same right wing idiots who constantly romanticize about the FOUNDING FATHERS and the CONSTITUTION and shit.

    heres the thing about the constitution, ignoring for a moment the fact that they didn't really want it to apply to minorities and poor people and shit. these were meant by the "founding fathers" to be INALIENABLE rights to ALL people. it was meant to say, everyone in every country in the world should have these rights, but since we can't be in every country, we're at least putting these rights in place here. it wasn't just supposed to be rights that the law had to begrudgingly accommodate for american citizens.

    of course it's never been like that but that's really beside the point when you're talking about how the us should treat prisoners/enemy combatants ideologically. if you want to buy into the romanticization of the founding fathers and the constitution, you have to accept that that is how it was meant.

    when these austrian school faggots criticize socialist arguments as "appeals to emotion" or some such, but then their entire philosophy is based on "boo hoo aggression"
