Apple Plans $1 Billion iDataCenter

shawngarringer Re:Tax breaks for the rich? (260 comments)

I think the 'woosh' is perhaps for you.

No one is talking about sales taxes here. Those taxes are designed to be passed to the customer. We're talking about all the various taxes that businesses are required to pay. Taxes on profit, medicare taxes, social security taxes. I don't personally go along with the whole 'businesses shouldn't pay taxes' mindset, but I see where people are coming from. Is that computer that costs $500 going to cost less if the company doesn't have to pay tax on the profit they're making at the end of the year? That's the question. And personally, I don't think so. As that is too abstract for most people to see right away...

Bill Allows Teachers to Contradict Evolution

shawngarringer Re:Sounds fine to me (1049 comments)

Who said I don't believe in God and live my life according to the Christian ethic? "Believe in Christ and you shall be saved"??

I just don't feel the need to use a book written 2000 years ago to explain things that science has recently explained. If the bible would have explained the creation of the Earth through evolution it wouldn't have been understood. Think about it, how would you explain something which we take as a basic principal (like how airplanes fly) to the general population who lived 2000 years ago? Do you think they understood the physics behind things like that?
