Science Cannot Prove the Existence of God

Kiaser Zohsay Re:Well That About Wraps It Up For God (755 comments)

See, science has this thing where many scientists and science faithful feel the need to disprove God.

I respectfully disagree. I do agree that many of the God faithful perceive science and scientists in this way, but I don't think that this need of disproof is central to science or the scientific mindset. Many scientists that I have known personally believe in the existence of God. In fact I met a biology professor who claimed that the longer he studied biology the more convinced he became that God not only exists, but has a sense of humor.

Science is about what you can observe and measure in the world around us, and what you can conclude from those observations, the what, where and how of the universe, so to speak. Philosophy in general, and religion in particular, deal with the why of the universe. There is no real reason for these two disciplines to be at odds with each other, but here we are. Again.

Congratulations, you've just fallen victim to the reverse-Streisand. Can't say that I blame you though, this is the biggest one since New Coke.

Take the easy way out, and buy a precooked fried turkey. I tried Bojangles this year, and was moderately impressed.

I'm most interested in robots that will...

Kiaser Zohsay Re:I don't mind driving (307 comments)

The approach Google is taking with their self-driving cars is all wrong. The self-driving car should not look like a Smart car or a Fiat, it should look and work like a limo. I should be able to get comfortable and relax so I can use my time productively, carry on a conversation, sleep, or whatever else happens in the back of a limo.

Goodbye, World? 5 Languages That Might Not Be Long For This World

Kiaser Zohsay Re:Perl? (547 comments)

Unmaintained windows packages? Are you using ActiveState? Try Strawberry Perl instead. It comes bundled with a Mingw32 build of GCC, which might seem like overkill, but it has been able to build from source any package I have thrown at it. Just use cpan.bat instead of ppm.bat.

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Wish You'd Known Starting Out As a Programmer?

Kiaser Zohsay Re:How to troubleshoot. (548 comments)

Here, here. Also, maintenance is a good way to learn how things can break, and from that you can learn how to build things that are less likely to break in the first place. One thing that people who work with me hear over and over again is "Fix it so it stays fixed."

X Window System Turns 30 Years Old

Kiaser Zohsay Re:time to die... (204 comments)

Here, here. In the late 90's, my employer heard a sales pitch from Citrix, who was doing remote desktop on Windows NT, and I was like "Oh yeah, we did stuff like this back in the day. Windows is just now catching up?"
