  1. The most important things to me is speed and security. Chrome beats IE in both areas. It beats Firefox in speed and rivals it, if not beats it, in security.
  2. I'm on the other computer so lets see what we get: Passion of the Christ 2: Judgement Day Oh man, that was a funny video on YouTube! I highly recommend it!
  3. I have no idea whats gonna pop up, I don't remember what I last pasted! Here goes... Oh, nothing. **disapointed!**
  4. ^Is wrong < Lives in the theocratic United States of America v Loves ice cream
  5. I find that sooooo slow and annoying when you're installing software. Yeah, I didn't like it either.
  6. No reason to be rude. Sorry, when I am really tired, my social graces tend to slip a little. When I posted that, it was after midnightm and I had gotten up early that morning when my daughter woke me up screaming her head off. Poor thing.
  7. Actually, most developed nations have a higher percentage of atheists. Of the developed nations, we have the most religious society. From what I have read, most other nations consider religion a taboo subject to discuss. Its fine to have religious beliefs, but they feel you should keep them to yourselves. Of course, Europe has had longer to figure out what kind of evils religion brings to society. Like crusades (Christians), Jihads (muslims), and inquisitions (Christians). BTW, Mormons are Christians. They are a sect of Christianity, and a lot different than most other sects of Christianity. But they are still Christians. Check their beliefs, they still believe Jesus is the Christ.
  8. Religion, or (in my case) the lack of it, should be a private matter. Since there are so many people who worship a different god, or no god at all, national policy should not be determined by religion. What secular sense does it make to deny gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples, namely the right to marry? It only makes sense from a religious viewpoint, that homosexuality is an abomination to God. But some people's god doesn't care who you fall in love with, have sex with, or marry. Others, who don't believe in a god, have no problem with it. If its against your religion, don't do it. But don't force that upon others. As for the separation of church and state not being in the constitution, it is there. It just doesn't go by that name. Its kinda like the Trinity. The word "Trinity" is no where in the Bible. But the idea is present. Anyways, we have strayed from the OP. I suggest we start a new topic on the separation of Church and state, and go back to the original topic.
  9. Daily: Chrome FreeCol Frequently: Firefox 3 FreeBasic Paint.NET Classic Media Player I'm sure there's more, thats just off the top of my head.
  10. In one set of scriptures, yes. In other scriptures, he's a vengeful god whose hatred burns great against those who sin against his law. I don't want a leader relying upon the will of a God who has mood swings worse than my pregnant fiancee (and she is bad!) Do you remember the story of two whose cities destroyed? How about the entire earth except for one family? What about this god commanding 7 nations (the 7 nations of Canaan) utterly destroyed? Go ahead and say that thats the old testament, as many Christians do. But the Bible says God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. That was said by Peter, one of the early church leaders. And what about those who worship another god, or no god at all? Why should they have their national affairs determined by a god that they do not believe in. Or what about the Christians that disagree with others what God's will is? There are so many people saying what god's will is, why should we listen to one sect and not another? There is a reason this country was founded upon the separation of church and state. There's a reason our founding fathers wanted religion and politics separate.
  11. I wouldn't worry... Chrome is open source, so Mozilla can take whatever it wants from it. If they drop too much, they can just release a new browser that include's Chrome's best.
  12. I respected McCain, for he was the first republican in a while that didn't pander to the Christian Right. But now, thats exactly what his choosing Palin was. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/0 ... 23205.html She is one of the most fundamentalist Christians in the USA today. She believes the war in Iraq is a holy war ordained by God and Jesus Christ. Do we want someone in office, a potential president, who believes in the concept of holy war? It makes her- and the USA, if she gets control- just as bad as bin Laden and other Islamic extremists!
  13. At one point in my life (when I was a teen in high school), e-sword was always running on my school laptop. I was so religious back then, I still know the Bible better than most ministers/preachers/priests/etc., and its been 4-5 years since I have read the Bible for anything more than a good laugh!
  14. I'm not saying people don't care about the election, obviously they do. This is a very historic election, regardless of which party wins. What I am saying is that the illiteracy rates are going up, and misinformation is going around a lot faster than true information a lot more than it used to.
  15. Sorry, I have been offline most the day playing with my 11 month old daughter. All I gotta say is, YAY!!! As soon as this is posted, I'll be closing Firefox and opening Chrome!
