Swedish Court Rules ISP Must Reveal OpenBitTorrent Operator's Identity

Bragador Re:Come on (230 comments)

As long as the administration wants to have incredibly high salaries while making sure the employees are paid as little as possible, I'd say unions have a right to demand more justice.

Bragador Re:Blasphemy? (949 comments)

Sorry, it's concede and not conceive. My mistake. Also, I wanted to be honest. I did read parts of the Bible and intend to read it in full eventually as I want to read other spiritual texts, but the parts I already read seems (to me) to not be that "godly". If you look at the Book of Kings, Elijah saw God start a fire to prove his existence. That's not a subtle God. If he were to exist, he could easily prove his existence today by appearing on TV or something like that. And yet, he doesn't want to do that and we're all going to hell if we don't blindly believe... This is in part why my "pre-conceived understanding of the world" has a problem with yours (if you are a believer). Anyway, peace be on you. :)

It's okay. As for the Bible, I simply read it literally. You have to conceive that if God would make a book, He would make it perfectly clear though. We would not need specialists to interpret it. It would have been interesting to discuss this in another setting. Oh well, peace be on you.

Ok, but Gentiles are non-Israelite tribes or nations so why would a god ask for different people to act differently? If Gentiles is only for Christians, then why would the same god would ask Jews to act in a way and Christians in another way. Finally, if Gentiles is taken in the sense of non-Christians and non-Jews, why would these specifications matter since they would go to Hell anyway?

Acts 15 does not say Christians should not put them to death. Unless you are saying the Bible is imperfect and contradicts itself as acts 15 actually does about circumcision. In that case, it would not be a holy book from God since God wouldn't make an imperfect book.

It is true that Christians have become softer. If a country would become a Christian theocracy, you would still have problems. Christians are supposed to kill everyone that work on Sundays after all and much more! http://godisimaginary.com/i22.htm

Yes, I did that and it does make them uncomfortable to know that we don't even treat our prisoners like their God will treat us in hell. :)

So much for being an infinitely kind God that advocates pardon.

Oh, I'm not a Muslim. I thought it was clear I was quoting from yahoo answers.

To answer your question, they think God is real so even if we don't want to believe in it, we can't escape his laws. In the West, it is true we don't really have to follow their vision of the world as much, but if we were in a mixed society and you would start putting statues of Jesus, Moses, etc. everywhere, they would make sure to destroy them. Why? Because, in their opinion, they have the truth.

Bragador Re:Blasphemy? (949 comments)

And those that don't either can't be called strictly Christians or...give the "by the book" group power, give them validity; so there's really not much difference.

Have you talked to real Christians? They pity us and believe we are going to eternally burn in a lake of fire. So, even if we are not Christians, they truly believe they have the truth and that we are sinning. You might believe you have the freedom to do things they don't like, but for them you are testing God. I've used logic and they aren't stupid. They know their bible is illogical. Their defense is simply that God is more intelligent and that it's only stupid for our human brains...

I'm going to blatantly copy and paste an answer from Kwlest http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100518205646AAeQc1L

----

I'm a Muslim & I'm glad you asked this question - (sorry if my answer is too long)

Some people who call them selves Muslims have blown this out of proportion, letting their Anger overcome them.

As Muslims if we call for protests on the drawings of Prophet Mohamed we should have protested the same way when the movie passion of Christ was made as it is degradation of one of the Greatest prophets sent by God

Sadly similar to some Christians and Jews who do not know their religion properly there is a group of Muslims who do not know what they are doing or why they are doing so; in the process they have done more harm to Islam than the original drawing.

But here is the reason why you should not draw a picture of a Prophet (notice I said prophet and not just Mohamed)

A prophet is a Human sent by God to spread the word of God and if one does a painting of this man then with due time others would start idolizing this picture and praying to it instead of God, associating partners with God is an unforgivable sin

it is best to avoid drawing pictures of prophets as this would result in hanging such paintings/Drawings in important places and respecting it as if it were holy

Having said that, drawing inappropriate pictures of anyone for that matter is morally incorrect, imagine I draw a picture of someone’s mother or father in a degrading manner how offensive is that to the persons children, they may not react the same way but it is equally degrading

Why would a non Muslim want to draw a picture of Prophet Mohamed in a wrong manner (if not to anger Muslims) you can call it freedom but Freedom is a trial from God and to miss use it is to be answerable to God and we have no right to kill or hurt such a person

When Prophet Mohamed visited a town and the people of that town stoned him God sent the Angel Gabriel and asked the prophet if you wish god has sent me to punish them and our beloved prophet said No, Maybe some day they will realize their mistake and accept the right path therefore I forgive them

When the prophet was not angry of attacks against him why should we act in Anger

I conclude with a saying from the Quran

O you who believe seek help through perseverance and Prayer; surely, ALLAH is with those who patiently persevere.” [Quran 02:153]

Lets be patient and Allah is surely with those who are patient as mentioned in above verse of the Quran and we should not worry about their plans against Islam, we all should pray and Ask Allah to save us from their evil plans against Islam

They believe they have the truth. So, even if you don't believe, you would be sinning against their prophet and Allah. For them, you are simply blind. You don't have the right to a different opinion since yours would be false.

It's the same thing with Christians that follow the rules by the book.

Bragador Re:This is Not all Bad News (804 comments)

It depends on what society you have.

Where I live, we have free health care so we hate it when people smoke or eat fast-food all week long. Their health problems are paid by everyone so we, the society, create laws to make sure it doesn't happen too often.

I agree that that school was a bit too drastic though. I would have written the name of the student on the chalkboard and that would have been the end of it.

Manga collector sentenced to six months of prison

Bragador (1036480) writes "A U.S. comic book collector is being sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to importing and possessing Japanese manga books depicting illustrations of child sex and bestiality.

Though child porn drawings leave me uneasy, should Americans accept or oppose a law like this?"

China attacks US-Taiwan arms deal

Bragador Bragador writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Bragador (1036480) writes "China has threatened to impose sanctions on the United-States in retaliation to their $6.4 billion arms deal with the Republic of China (Not to be confused with the People's Republic of China).
Beijing said Washington faced "serious repercussions" if it does not withdraw from the deal to provide the Republic of China with missiles, helicopters and military equipment.

Since it appears that the USA are empowering the Republic of China as the People's Republic of China is trying to peacefully assimilate what is allegedly part of its territory, might this lead to another cold war?

The worst song ever created by science

Bragador Bragador writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Bragador (1036480) writes "The unthinkable has been done. Vitaly Komar, Alex Melamid and David Soldier, with the help of an online poll conducted in the '90s regarding the musical tastes of listeners, used their evil brains to bring into existence the allegedly most annoying song ever created in the universe. This piece of art was specifically engineered to displease a maximum of listeners without simply using dissonance and random noises. By also using the same statistical analysis, they allegedly created the most appreciated song that could ever be brought forth from the human psyche."
