jt_04 fantastic idea, working with files could be easier (99 comments)

it would be super cool to be able to rsync my figures to my account. that's probably asking too much though. plus they don't take .eps files??

Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education

jt_04 Re:Please debate William Lane Craig (1142 comments)

you've got his first premise all wrong, btw. it's not "everything has a cause...." or "anything humans can imagine must have a cause", it is "everything that begins to exist has a cause". there's a big difference. current scientific evidence shows the universe began to exist, therefore, the universe has a cause. since time and space came into existence with the universe, the cause must be beyond time and space.

Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education

jt_04 Re:Answered already... (1142 comments)

No, he is saying religion is evil and since it is impossible to prove a negative the burden of proof lies with the one making the claim

It's possible to prove a negative. For example, I can prove that there is not a elephant in the room with me right now.

Religion is an evil that preys on the willfully ignorant. Once we outgrow religion only then will the human race truly advance at a more rapid pace.

You can't judge the truth of a viewpoint based on the behavior of its adherents. The issue is not "how much evil has been done by people in the name of religion", the issue is "which system of beliefs is true?". Atheism is simply another system of beliefs which should be judged against the evidence to determine its truthfulness.

Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education

jt_04 Re:Please debate William Lane Craig (1142 comments)

This is an extreme mischaracterization of william lane craig. can you point me to a representative sample of his debates on youtube where he "doesn't obey any of the rules" and "flaunts" it? Dawkins' continued avoidance of william lane craig just makes it look like he doesn't want to try to defend his arguments against the tough logical and scientific scrutiny that would result.

jt_04 Please debate William Lane Craig (1142 comments)

Why have you refused to debate William Lane Craig? Will you please accept his challenge and debate him on the existence of God?

HTC Profits Drop By 79%

jt_04 I would never buy an HTC phone again b/c of Sense (209 comments)

My wife had an HTC phone and I found the Sense UI to be terrible. It slowed down her phone because it was so resource hungry and most of the changes in Sense didn't really add any value, they were just flashy changes meant to impress people. I flashed cyanogenmod and she loved it. I love HTC's hardware, but would never buy one of the phones again unless they improve their awful UI.

Boeing's X-51 WaveRider Jet Crashes In Mach 6 Attempt

jt_04 Re:Why not build several, perhaps 3, at the time? (190 comments)

Why not build several, perhaps 3, at the time?

I doubt it would make the project three times as expensive.

yeah, probably more like 4-5 times more expensive. government-run projects, you know...
