Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

ZeRu Re:The important stuff (313 comments)

There are quite a few rumors / gossip she is gay or in a lesbian relationship herself.

So, she could be both gay and lesbian? I thought you can be only one of the above, unless you're implying that she's both male and female. And I thought it was only a phrase when people said that she got balls.

Jimmy Carter: Snowden Disclosures Are 'Good For Americans To Know'

ZeRu Re:Oh, how cute (289 comments)

I think that the GP is upset because Carter wasn't making such claims while he was the president. What if Obama says in 20 years how it was wrong to imprison Manning? Would it suprise you? Or it's just the type of hypocritical behaviour you would expect from a politician?

Religion Is Good For Your Brain

ZeRu Re:Whatever (529 comments)

Science doesn't need to explain everything, it only needs dedication to facts.

That's a privilege that religion doesn't have. It's hard to win an argument against someone who thinks you're guilty until proven wrong.

That's one of the biggest differences between science and religion. A religious person will make up stories and outright lie. A scientist will say "I don't know. Let's find out.".

Everyone lies, not just religious people. I've been trolled by being called a creationist many times just because I defended religion, without even mentioning anything about creationism of course. Also, scientists tend to dismiss every natural phenomena that they are unable to explain as superstition, or even call some stuff that has little to do with science, and is not a threat to it (like conspiracy theories) as "dangerous pseudo-science".

Religion Is Good For Your Brain

ZeRu Re:Whatever (529 comments)

Why? I am an atheist and I meditate regularly. It's my method of relaxing, clearing my mind of extraneous thoughts and focusing upon those that are foremost. It is a way of being able to think through life issues calmly and rationally. There is absolutely nothing religious or magical about it.

Can science explain mediation? If not, then it's magic. Of course you could simply say that you use meditation because "it works". But every religious person will also say that prayer works. As I said (and you failed to prove me wrong, instead you obviously replied as AC so you can mod my post as troll - of course I wouldn't expect better from the likes of you), it's much like prayer, even though the other person who replied to me pointed out one difference which I don't disagree with. Both things are still very spiritual, and spirituality - not "magic" as you call it - is what religion (any religion) is all about.

I hope you haven't run out of mod points.

Religion Is Good For Your Brain

ZeRu Re:Whatever (529 comments)

Meditation and prayer are almost two same things. I don't expect for any atheist to believe in meditation.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

They're a myth, I guess. Nobody cites Martin Luther King or Desmond Tutu as paragons of Christianity.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

ZeRu Re:Pick your favorite amendments! (380 comments)

So there's some sort of rule that you either have to support all amendments to the Constitution, or none of them?

Yes, it's called leftist thinking. They apply the same logic to everyone they don't like.

So if you say that you're Christian, they'll automatically assume that you think The Earth is 4000 years old and God created fossils of dinosaurs to test our faith.

If you say that you're pro-life, they'll imply that you think that abortion should be illegal even when continued pregnancy will result in mother's death.

And If you say that you support gun rights, they'll imply that you have posters of Anders Breivik in your bedroom.

New Beetle Named After Charles Darwin and David Sedaris

ZeRu Re:David Sedaris? (35 comments)

Kinda unbelievable that no comments (yet) on this page are based around mocking creationists (as if they visit Slashdot, lol)
Especially when you consider that even when Slashdot was in its better days, threads like this attracted trolls like shit attracted flies.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

ZeRu Re:Pick your favorite amendments! (380 comments)

You're a moron. Amendments like the 1st and 4th and the 14th, which guarantee individual liberty, are categorically different from amendments like the 16th, which expand state power. Paul is entirely consistent in being in favor of individual liberty and against state power.

Yeah but OP is a fag who think state should have all power on the world and that we all should exist just to serve the state. He despises corporate capitalism yet his visions of The Gov't could be summed up as "One corpororation to rule them all".

Ask Slashdot: How To Protect Your Passwords From Amnesia?

Not sure if they will want to reveal them to you, though.

Lawsuits Seek To Turn Chimpanzees Into Legal Persons

ZeRu Re:You may think it troll, flame bait, etc, but... (641 comments)

Other primates, even chimpanzees and gorillas, cannot give informed consent, so marrying them would never be justifiable for the same reason marrying a four-year-old is not reasonable.

I'm gonna reveal a shocking truth to you - it is entirely legal to eat an animal without its consent.
And yet somehow it's not legal to eat a four-year old.

A Math Test That's Rotten To the Common Core

ZeRu Re:I took the whole test (663 comments)

Clever answer, but if that's the logic behind it, why the question says "part I know"? Shouldn't it be "parts I have"? Looks like it comes to a bad choice of words as the reason behind most of the confusion here.

French Court Orders Google To Block Pictures of Ex-F1 Chief Mosley

ZeRu Re:Why is he special? (180 comments)

You missed the main point - Mosley's father was a major Nazi supporter during the WW2, and even had Hitler and Goebbels as guests at his wedding. If there were not for his father's deeds, Max would have been far more likely to get away with this Nazi Sex orgy he participated in.

Croatian blogger goes to jail

ZeRu ZeRu writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ZeRu (1486391) writes "By verdict of a local court in Croatian town of Vukovar, Croatian blogger Damir Fintic will go to a jail over a comment he did not make. In 2005, one of the visitors on Fintic's website vukovarac.net left an insulting comment targeted towards Vladimir Stengl, who was Vukovar's mayor at that time. Stengl sued Fintic for defamation and won the case. Unable to pay the fine, Fintic is forced to go to jail. According to another Croatian blogger, Marko Rakar, this is the first such case in Europe.
