Never Before Seen: Deer Spotted Eating Human Bones (National Geographic) ...

That deer looks guilty as hell.

Who else feels compelled to hide their atheism from co-workers?

It never comes up, and if it did I’d have no problem talking about it. I think everyone at my job is an athiest without exception.

indirect76 comments on May 9, 2018:
“Luck”, or just factors beyond our control influence our lives a lot more than people like to give it credit for. Things fall into place after hard work, and that is attributed to the hard work. Though it is equally possible that the hard work had little to do with it and things just happened that way.

indirect76 comments on May 9, 2018:
Whoah!! I have the same exact dream once or twice a year! It’s just as you describe it. The only difference is, I’m the soldier.
Should I get an Atheist sticker for my car?
indirect76 comments on May 9, 2018:
Who cares about the risk? Why would anyone want an athiest sticker? It’s so pointless. I can think of a million things that I could put in my car that would say much more about who I am.

What do you think of a computer programed to benefit the majority of the population , insure world ...
indirect76 comments on May 9, 2018:
I’ll take this one. Being a software engineer I can say that you can only write software to do what the programmer already knows how to do. The problem is coming up with an algorithm that churns out world peace and environment/economic stability. So creating an algorithm for these goals that are not exactly objective is the first oroblem. The second problem is something called P vs NP problems. The gist is, P(polynomial) problems are considered ‘easy’, as in they can be computed in a short time. An example would be anything that your phone can currently do. NP(nondeterministic-polynomial) problems require many orders of magnitude longer to compute with current technology. An example of a NP problem would be factoring a number that is a product of two large (100+ digits) prime numbers. Something like this may take billions of year even if we had a trillion times more computing power worldwide. The problems you describe are each most orobably NP. Third, even if the first and second problem were solved, you would still have the problem of implementing the plan set out by the computer. You would have to give the computer complete control (bad idea), or trust that everyone will be on board, which they won’t be. Quantum computers or neural networks may help though.
I've been considering the implications of current trends in technology. I have seen several stories ...
indirect76 comments on May 9, 2018:
I used to be against Marxism and communism outright because it cedes too much power to the state and the history of where that can lead. Though, as automation start taking over we are going to have to figure out a way to deal with the great inequality that this may bring. Truck driving is a huge employer in the US and it’s a few steps away from being an obsolete profession. There are many, many professions like this, so what are we going to do?

Why did you choose atheism?

indirect76 comments on May 7, 2018:
It’s puzzling because I know smokers that would never litter otherwise. I’ll have to diplomatically call them out if I see them do it.
Telling children Santa Claus is real? Are you against it or for it?
indirect76 comments on May 7, 2018:
I don’t see any problem with it. I don’t think I’ve met a single person who said they were displeased because of being told these things. If anything it may help them be more capable of seeing through other myths.

'They don't belong': police called on Native American teens on college tour | US news | The Guardian...
indirect76 comments on May 5, 2018:
Anonymity should be protected. If I see someone being creepy, I should be able to call the police without risk of reprisal. The police did speak with the caller, and they did have to explain to themselves. I don’t think publishing their name will do good for anyone but hooligans. I don’t get how it just a forgone conclusion that the caller was racially motivated. It may well have been, who knows, but you can’t just assume that. How many times are the police called on innocent people that are acting suspicious? Hundreds a day? Though it happens to two ethnic kids, they miss a school tour and now it’s news?

indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
I’ve been pondering this for the last hour, and one thing I should say is that I agree with you more than I disagree. Calling a woman by that term is crass, low brow, and not a particularly clever use of the word. It’s not something I would do, and it’s a good way to lose an argument. Dehumanization, in any form, is not a good thing. It’s what makes genocide possible and war easy.

indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
I respectfully disagree with a few things you said. Mostly the second paragraph. I have used the word “bitch” thousands of times in my life and it’s been for a variety of reasons, the least of which is anger towards women. Like all words, It can be an incredible tool for making a statement when used the right way. Why do I choose to use the term you ask? Because when I do, there is no other word that is better suited for conveying an idea and emotion I’m trying to communicate at the moment.
Will plastic money in the USA eradicate theism, at least monotheism?
indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
Yeah, that should put an end to monotheism pretty quickly. I suspect theism will end a couple days after.
I'm so glad there was no internet or social media when I was growing up. I mean, REALLY glad.

Why is it that we do not hear scientists defend their postions more often.
