  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!
  16. I know a lot of people who aren't in my family that's like that. I only used it as an example. Not only do I go by my personal experience, but I remember reading about it in the newspaper a while back, too, how our graduation and literacy rates are dropping in the USA. Has been for a while, and its speeding up too. People will point to out military might to say that we are as strong as we ever have been, but Rome was pretty strong militarily mere decades before its fall.
  17. Well, as soon as they change the EULA, section 11, I'll start using Chrome again. I got pampered with its speed (and I only used it for less than 24 hours, too!) and now I get very frustrated with Firefox's slower speed!
  18. Now I feel arrogant and dumb... Sorry, I didn't realize you were so young. That just goes to show, you never really know who you are talking to unless you kniw them IRL. But I know a lot of adults who have no idea what is going on. I was surprised that in my family I was the first of my generation to graduate... Our nation is in decline, and so our government, since it is elected by the people, is also in decline. Woe, America the Great has fallen, and no one can help us back up but ourselves!
  19. Thats the way it was supposed to work according to the constitution. See we weren't meant to be a democracy, but a republic. The elerctoral college would be chosen by the states and/or people, and they would vote for the president. Today, however, the members of the electoral college all vote for whoever won the election in the state they are from, it makes it a bit more democratic. For example, if on election day the 52% of the state of Ohio voted for Obama then the members of the College that represented Ohio would all vote for Obama. Thats how Bush won even though more people voted for Kerry. He won the Big states that carried most the votes (like his home state of Texas) and so he won most of the electoral votes. Edit: I find it ironic that you live in our nation's first capital and you don't know how the elections work. Nothing against you, I just think its ironic!
  20. Why the freak would they include that? I hold my intellectual property dear, and if Google can just steal it away whenever they choose... I guess I'm switching back to Firefox. But darn, I loved the speed of this baby! Farewell Chrome!
  21. And? If the parents were as supportive as the couple as the media is making it out to be, thats not a problem. But I guess that does go a short distance to explain it, so I guess I will accept that explanation unless any other evidence pops up.
  22. That quiz makes most people Libertarian. whether that means most people are libertarian, or whether the quiz itself is biased to make more people libertarian, I don't know.
  23. Obama is showing some class about the Bristol Palin situation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA3m-g_SBY4 Now this is pure speculation, but is Bristol maybe being pressured into a marriage she doesn't want? She's been pregnant for 5 months, so why hasn't the wedding happened yet, or anyone heard of their affianced status until now? Now that the story has been blown sky-high, is the GOP pressuring Governor Palin to lay pressure upon her 17 year old daughter? Or maybe the GOP had nothing to do with it and its just the governor who's pressuring her? Or is the young couple really in love and just now deciding to wed after 5 months? Maybe it was a hard decision for them and it took 5 months to make it. I just think its funny they just made up their minds when the news broke out...
  24. Honestly, I could care less what they rate it. I love it, and will refuse to go back to Firefox or IE until they start to implement some of Chrome's features, such as its speed!
