Why the new Galaxy s6 sucks

No removable storage? Oh, that makes random file transfers on the fly so much more fun! And I love how the limited internal storage space affects how I use my own data.

 

No removable battery? I can go from 1% to 100% in less than 90 seconds with the S5, now I get to be tethered to a charging cable! Added bonus: the battery wears out over time, forcing you to replace the phone. Extra bonus: you need a special charger for their “fast” charging times

 

Samsung, I could give zero cares about the stupid iPhone…since forever. What kind of functional regression game are you playing here? Why do you want toddlers to fawn over how good the phone feels in their hand? Like that is some supreme benchmark of electronics or something while having zero to do with real-world usability.

 

Thanks for nothing.

Did God Kill More People Than Satan?

Saw this little info graphic today. Apparently God killed more people in the bible than Satan. Is this supposed to convince Christians to turn atheist, or is it supposed to make atheists angry? I mean, if you’re a Christian, you’re supposed to believe that God is just, so those deaths would be justified. And if you’re an atheist you don’t believe those deaths were caused by God anyway, so there’s nothing to be angry about.

A Reply to a Comment on “LOL Theists.com”

I was Stumbling today and came across this blog post.

And I read this comment:

Nice Gish Gallop.

Science doesn’t say it is infallible. Science embraces human fallibility and tries to work out how to overcome it.

Theists say that their various texts were written by god/s, not man.

Scientific theories would re-establish themselves because they are a reflection of a working reality, not human immortality fantasy.

The rewriting of science is its strength, not a weakness. New information is encouraged. Only a mind befuddled by religion could make your “.. illusory discourse that Western culture ..” statement. Science is legitimate because it works. For example: medical science works and prayer does nothing.

The difference between proof and faith: evidence. Show me the evidence for your faith claims.

Science brought us global warming? Human activity brought us global warming. Science has identified a threat. What is religion doing? Denying it because of their funny old books.

Social Darwinism is a spinoff of religious mindset of god/s supporting one group over another. Once we are able to think without the encumbrance of the religious mindset, trying to kill off the other will become less attractive to humans.

Anyway, I’m sick of your post. You have just brought the same tired justifications for your religious fantasies. Do you cut and paste this shit into every forum?

And this is my reply:

“Science doesn’t say it is infallible. Science embraces human fallibility and tries to work out how to overcome it.”
–Really? Is that ALL science does? I guess nuclear weapons are the ultimate in overcoming human fallibility then. Or would it be genetically modified corn?

“Theists say that their various texts were written by god/s, not man.”

–No. Most say they were written by men who were inspired by god. The Buddhist texts were supposedly written by the Buddha, who apparently made no claims about god/s. The Koran was supposedly written by a prophet inspired by an angel. Pay attention to detail, would ya?

“For example: medical science works and prayer does nothing.”
–Apparently there is evidence that prayer and other spiritual practices have health benefits. It’s not exactly curing cancer, but hey, it’s something. You can find scholarly articles about it on the “Internet.” I don’t know if it’s true, but the placebo effect is nearly universally accepted by the scientific community, and this seems like pretty much the same thing, really.

“The difference between proof and faith: evidence. Show me the evidence for your faith claims.”

–Faith by definition requires no evidence. For example, I have faith that the entire universe sprang from nothing in a single instant. I believe this because I’ve had direct revelation. I don’t need to prove it to you because I don’t care if you believe it. The burden of proof lies with the person who wants to convince the other of their claim.

“Science brought us global warming? Human activity brought us global warming. ”
–Yes. Science brought us CFCs, gasoline, and internal combustion engines. These things have supposedly caused global warming. Incidentally, science is a human activity.

“Science has identified a threat. What is religion doing? Denying it because of their funny old books.”

–Yes. Science is the cause and the cure for global warming. But is religion really denying it? All of religion? All religious believers? You might want to think that through a bit more and do some research before making such a claim. Unless it’s based on faith, in which case more power to ya.

“Social Darwinism is a spinoff of religious mindset of god/s supporting one group over another. Once we are able to think without the encumbrance of the religious mindset, trying to kill off the other will become less attractive to humans.”

– I guess Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao Zedong didn’t get the memo. And I have my suspicions that most religious “leaders” who have led people into war were not spiritually guided at all but were simply sociopaths who knew that they needed to appear to believe in order to manipulate the masses. And what do you mean by “the religious mindset” — Is there just one?

Verizon Galaxy S3 “No SIM card” error

The new Verizon Galaxy S3 smartphones are creating quite a problem. A lot of people (including myself) are getting SIM card errors (sometimes intermittent) but it doesn’t seem to be related to the SIM card problems. For some, they get the SIM error when switching from 4g to 3g areas and for others it just happens all the time. And if you were thinking of forcing the phone to switch to 3g all the time, well that isn’t possible. And if you take your phone to a VZW dealer that has 4g LTE in the area then you can’t exactly reproduce the error and might end up looking like a raving idiot. This is what the error looks like:

The intermittent “No SIM card” error is causing a lot of dread for Galaxy s3 owners by cutting off all communications on their phone

It happened to me on initial activation of the phone and all tech support said was to go to a verizon store and get a new SIM card. After doing hard resets, taking the card in and out several times, changing location for best signal I still get the same no SIM error –

“A SIM card is needed to operate this phone. Please turn off your phone and insert your SIM card.”

No matter what I do, it just says the SIM card isn’t installed.

My next option is to go get a new (free) card but from what others have said, that doesn’t solve the problem – at all. It isn’t about the SIM card, it is about something else and all you get from Verizon is:

“Your request has been escalated to the System Performance Team and there seems to be a network system issue in your area . These issues are usually resolved in 24-72 hours.”

Many have reported returning their phones after replacement SIII phones and replacement SIM cards keep throwing the same intermittent error. I will do the same if this doesn’t get corrected soon as like most people I NEED reliable communication in today’s modern life. Is this a software or hardware issue? Is this going to be the next big Verizon scandal like the iPhone antennagate?

Please share your experiences in the comments below!

UPDATE: I was trying to activate a 4g phone in a 3g area. Apparently you can not do that. I called Verizon to confirm and Shayla said that is true. We will soon see if that is the issue but it is odd that the error it throws at you is the “no card” error rather than just saying you need 4g coverage to activate – shouldn’t that be highlighted in the instructions? After all, Verizon is known for coverage in the sticks – apparently you just can’t activate one there ;)

 

UPDATE: Getting a new SIM card solved my problem, so far.

How to get rid of homosexuals in the USA

homosexual death camps – hooray!!!

I bet he imagines it all night long:

god have mercy, it makes me puke and sick!
can you imagine kissing some man?

 

One hole in his death camp logic – apparently he forgot that “queers and lesbians” don’t make “queers and lesbians” – straight people do!

WWJD? Dammit, I need to love this guy too??
