10 reasons why christianity is wrong

The 10 Reasons Why Christianity is Wrong
by Trevor Burrus · October 30th, 2006 ·

10. It is Absurd: This may seem like I am re-stating what this list sets out to show. However, this is misleading. When someone comes to us with an extravagant claim the most common reason we may discount the claim is because, to put it curtly, we find it absurd. The reason why the majority of people don’t believe in Scientology, reincarnation, Mormonism, Greek Gods, etc. is not because they have extensively researched the historicity and veracity of the claims, it is because they don’t believe such things happen in the world. In other words, common sense tells us that when someone claims the absurd almost anything is more likely to be the case (i.e. they are lying, they are delusional, they are relying on misinformation) then for the absurdity to be real. Men do not miraculously heal the sick, raise the dead, cure the blind, and rise from the grave. The claims of Christianity are prima facie absurd. The burden of proof is on them.

How to Fire people

An executive was in a quandary. He had to get rid of one of his staff. He had narrowed it down to one of two people, Debra or Jack. It would be a hard decision to make, as they were both equally qualified and both did excellent work. He finally decided that in the morning whichever one used the water cooler first would have to go. Debra came in the next morning, hugely hungover after partying all night. She went to the cooler to get some water to take an aspirin and the executive approached her and said: “Debra, I’ve never done this before, but I have to lay you or Jack off.” Debra replied, “Could you jack off, I have a terrible headache.”

Yaksamesh...

NEW YORK Expecting a major, if probably hysterical, hit to its image in the coming weeks with the release of the new “Borat” movie, the government of Kazakhstan has taken out a four-page advertising section in today’s New York Times and International Herald Tribune.
It comes as Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev is about to meet with President Bush, starting today. The ad kicks off with a large photo of the two men shaking hands at the White House in 2001.

The costly ad supplement, which appears in the middle of the Times’ first section, makes no mention of Borat or the movie. The government has also produced ads to be shown on U.S. television.

For those not in the know, Borat is a character – a bumbling, racist, Kazakh journalist – created by Sacha Baron Cohen for his TV series “Da Ali G Show.” In the new movie, which has already drawn wide attention, he comes to America and does everything from riding the New York City subway (releasing chickens) to singing the “Star Spangled Banner” at a Western rodeo.

Why Do People Kiss?

Why do humans kiss? - Roberto Morabito from Brooklyn, NY.

"Her eyes are wide as they stare into yours. You wrap your arm around her waist and pull her in close. She touches your face and you lean in, tilt your head – to the right, of course – and your lips connect. The rushing sensation leaves you little room to wonder, “Why the hell am I doing this anyway?”

Of course, the simplest answer is that humans kiss because it just feels good. But there are people for whom this explanation isn’t quite sufficient. They formally study the anatomy and evolutionary history of kissing and call themselves philematologists.
So far, these kiss scientists haven’t conclusively explained how human smooching originated, but they’ve come up with a few theories, and they’ve mapped out how our biology is affected by a passionate lip-lock.

A big question is whether kissing is learned or instinctual. Some say it is a learned behavior, dating back to the days of our early human ancestors. Back then, mothers may have chewed food and passed it from their mouths into those of their toothless infants. Even after babies cut their teeth, mothers would continue to press their lips against their toddlers’ cheeks to comfort them.

Supporting the idea that kissing is learned rather than instinctual is the fact that not all humans kiss. Certain tribes around the world just don’t make out, anthropologists say. While 90 percent of humans actually do kiss, 10 percent have no idea what they’re missing.



Others believe kissing is indeed an instinctive behavior, and cite animals’ kissing-like behaviors as proof. While most animals rub noses with each other as a gesture of affection, others like to pucker up just like humans.


Bonobos, for example, make up tons of excuses to swap some spit. They do it to make up after fights, to comfort each other, to develop social bonds, and sometimes for no clear reason at all – just like us.Today, the most widely accepted theory of kissing is that humans do it because it helps us sniff out a quality mate.

When our faces are close together, our pheromones “talk” – exchanging biological information about whether or not two people will make strong offspring. Women, for example, subconsciously prefer the scent of men whose genes for certain immune system proteins are different from their own. This kind of match could yield offspring with stronger immune systems, and better chances for survival.

Still, most people are satisfied with the explanation that humans kiss because it feels good. Our lips and tongues are packed with nerve endings, which help intensify all those dizzying sensations of being in love when we press our mouths to someone else’s.

Experiencing such feelings doesn’t usually make us think too hard about why we kiss – instead, it drives us to find ways to do it more often."

Dunno... I'm not convinced yet.... (K)

Take study-worthy lecture notes

"Copying class notes after the fact is a time-consuming way to study for an exam, but it was the only thing that truly worked for me back in college.

Wanna go Solo?

When starting a business, here are 5 things you shouldn’t spend a lot of money on:

1 - Fancy shmancy marketing materials:
Brochures, pamphlets, and other uber-glossy, 4-color ultra high-end print materials are too expensive when first starting out. Go the blogging route for a bit of marketing muscle and exposure. Do a little homework on SEO and targeted advertising through Google Adwords before spending on printed marketing materials. If business cards are a must (and they typically are) try an online service like Great FX Business Cards where you can design your cards online.

2 - Software:
I’m not advocating the use of pirated software, but there are plenty of online tools that are inexpensive or free, and can be just as effective for starting up your business as more traditional software. Ex. Google Spreadsheets, Writely, Blinksale, StikiPad, Skype…

3 - Advertising:
It may depend somewhat on the business, but advertising is a tough way to go off the bat. It’s going to be very expensive and with an early business probably not generate the returns you want. Instead, try public relations (PR). PR is less expensive and can be effective at generating buzz/awareness and direct leads. Try generating referrals and networking, which usually involve a ton of work but little cash upfront.

4 - Office space:
Typically one of the biggest expenses when running a small business. Avoid it if you can. Go virtual. Go home office.

5 - Staff:
You may need to bring people onboard right away, but if you can outsource, try that first. Definitely outsource things like accounting, bookkeeping and other non-essential functions. Get good referrals, negotiate good pricing and barter if you can. This is where your network will play a huge role. If you’ve got contacts or friends willing to provide these services for free or at a greatly reduced price, all the better! For essential services, if you do have to hire people, think sweat equity. You might not be comfortable taking on partners, but if they’re minority stakeholders it might be worth the cut in payroll.

The Truth About Food Expiration Dates

Nervous folks are peering more closely at dates stamped on the produce they buy from supermarkets. But how helpful are these dates really?
Many of them are actually quite confusing. "Is a food fresh until Feb. 1, 2008, if that's the date stamped on it, and then do you throw it out on Feb. 2?" asks Jeanne Goldberg, professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University. "It's a very inexact science since those dates include a wide margin of safety.
