Any christian church, any fits that description. So do some flavors of Judaism and Islam. Ironically most flavors of modern paganism don't. Yet are still called such by these groups...

Usage Based Billing In Canada To Be Rescinded

Coraon something wonderful (364 comments)

I was really hoping this would happen. Rogers and bell were getting killed by 'little guy' ISP's so they tried to squeeze them out with bandwidth caps, now that that is going away hopefully rogers and bell will be forced to remove their caps too.

Trek Tech That Most Needs To Be Invented Before I Die:

Coraon warp drive (633 comments)

cheap effective faster then light travel would really solve a lot of the problems that exist on this planet. By expanding out from this planet rapidly we would take pressure off the environment, and we wouldn't have to live in such tight quarters, the way we look at money and value would change too, all in all it needs to happen soon ( like 20-50 generations or so. Or we could be in serious trouble as a species.

Oxford Scientists Say Dogs Are Smarter Than Cats

Coraon I think my cat is rather smart, (716 comments)

She has clearly exhibited the following behaviors 1. she will bring me her mouse to get me to throw it for her. if i make a bad throw (it ricochets off a wall and bounces near her, or throw it into a box) she will get it and bring it to my wife 2. She mimics the sounds smaller prey animals make when she knows their near by and shes in hiding. You've never seen the look of shock on a birds face when it thinks one of its fellows is calling for help and finds a cat there. 3. my cat will 'sit' and 'come' on command, we just had to learn that she was very food driven, and how to reward her in a way she would find valuable. 4. my cat wont let my wife and I fight, if we are arguing she will get in between both of us and meow and paw us till we calm down. Just as a test my wife took a swing at me. She had 12lbs of cat attached to her arm, biting but not hard enough to pierce skin. the cat knew what was happening and showed enough awareness to try to stop the fight.

Prepare To Be Watched While You Watch a Movie

Coraon you know what would be nice? (433 comments)

I would like a law that stated if someone is operating a recording device to capture your image, you have the right to do the same. Personally I would love to see how the movie execs and police reacted to that. I think if that was law you would see a lot less recording devices, and a lot more people thinking before they act.

Coraon gotta get back in time (1270 comments)

I think I would get some silk kimonos, a few guns, some solar panels and creature comforts, go back in time to an English forest around the time of Arthurian legend, set myself up with a little cottage and get away from it all, grow my beard out and occasionally randomly use my advanced tech to either help or hinder the locals al a the Ivanhoe gambit ( ) I think mid-evil Europe needs more wizards.

Pirate Parties Plan To Shoot Site Into Orbit

Coraon Re:Outer Space Treaty (301 comments)

quick question, what would happen if the satellite was launched from international waters by an unregistered water craft? this can be done by not registering a self made boat, and using one of the cheaper launch vehicles to get it into orbit. Don't get me wrong its a LOT more planning and more money, but does cause a loophole in the treaty. another option, launch it from a country that didn't sign the treaty.

Coraon Re:To immediately Godwin the poll... (1270 comments)

Actually Jesus isn't really that different then a large number of contemporaries. People have been teaching "wouldn't it be nice if people were nice to each other" and promptly getting killed for it for quite some time before and after him. Also Hell is a christian concept, being pagan (Gardernarian priesthood) I was never in danger of going to hell for sins as my faith has no sins, just mortal consequences for our actions. As for the genocides that Christianity committed, if your god is real, and he really does care about all people, despite race creed or weather you believe or not then why did he not stop his own people? either he doesn't exist or doesn't object, the best outcome here is that he's just a dick that wanted to see people suffer. Actually the first people who used the scientific method were herbalists (read witches) or Alchemist's (read heretics) the first people to call themselves scientists might have been christian but they only could be that by following the trails blazed by pagans. Sorry mcgrew, but your religion is too young to take credit for single handily making everything cool in this world. I'm not saying mine did either. It took all of us. Personally I would want to meet the man Jesus (if I could find him, that I think would be the hard part, I can't pass for Roman or Israelite, I've got too much Norse in my blood and people at that time in history were not trusting of outsiders that didn't speak their language) and show him what would be done in his name, all of it, good and bad, then let him decide what he wants to do about it.
