1. we lazy
2. why aren't you memorizing the url and typing it into the navigation bar?

Does this mean that the whole "no one has ever killed in the name of Atheism!" argument that Dawkins fans like to use is sunk, or will it just change?

It was only a matter of time, once Atheism got a big enough umbrella.

He was anti-religion in general, going from his web posts.  It appears he was asking people what faith they were, and then shooting them.  Fox has spun this to make it sound like he was targeting Christians.

Or the "forced meal schedule" thing.

I usually use a lager or a session ale (this was a Notch Session).  And while Guinness is rich, it's not really that heavy.  It would certainly sweeten the overall result, and the flavor would be a lot more distinct, but if you added more chili pepper, that could balance it out.

Summation: While my first instinct would be to cringe, you might want to try it and see.  The worst that could happen is you'd be out a few bucks and a couple of hours of your time.

The more I learn about entropy the less I think of it as a chaos phenomenon.  It's the reason why things happen the way they do.

How are you defining chaos, here?
Randomness I guess.  Been awhile since I've tried to write it down been 10 years since I've had to use thermoscience. Things like crystals don't form against entopy but because of it. They're seeking the lowest energy state and it's less chaotic than before.

Sort of thinking that the universe started as chaos and will end as chaos, but seems to be less so in the middle due to entropy.

Chaos, properly, encompasses both entropy and emergence, which are the forces which contribute to the total order and disorder of energy and matter.

Well, yes order is a subset of chaos. Then we get into chaos as everything, and entropy is a part of it.  I'm stuck on chaos=disorder and probably shouldn't be.   Entropy is more of an agent of change, and things are more ordered with it than without it.  I was thinking went back to my days of arguing on creationist boards.  They think of entropy as everything getting disordered, but if we didn't have it, every chemical reaction could spontaneously reverse, no energy required which to me is more disordered than ordered.  Then I'd muse about people atomizing.  Good times.

Not sure if I'm cut out for discussing the nature of chaos on a board that has probably argued about it a thousand times over before I even thought to look here.

There are a few old conversations about chaos = order+disorder and all that.  Not to shamelessly plug*, but much of the results were distilled into the Chao te Ching, if you don't mind that sort of thing.

*This is a shameless plug.

That's horribly creepy, and should be immediately included in the "Original Story Ideas" thread.

Oh, man.  I just made Yaka Mein.  I am like unto a god.

You're gonna have to unpack that, a bit.


Sure, it's a short paper, but accurate.

So, I may have a straight job again, back in my field.

Which is good, because - and I can't believe I'm saying this - I'm getting sick of slapping people.

Four ounces of Rye. One ounce of Italian Rossi vermouth. Bitters. Ice.

We do not have the same palate for cocktails, obviously.

Now the next issue:  Do you confront and break up, or do you fade?
