You have a ringing in your ears a lot of the time because your music just needs to be that loud to enjoy.
I’ll love you forever, and pay you back when my bursary finally comes through. That, and I’ll get you some pretty flowers and a bottle of whisky. Or…maybe just the flowers. K? :D
Here it is.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and if you buy me the third option, here, I’ll have a seizure. Fuck Haiti, make a random weirdo off the internet happy!
I just watched it for the first time there on DVD, and I’m honestly not sure if I liked it or not. I mean sure, it was well directed and a decent enough story but it was fucking brutal.
Seriously, fucking brutal. Even the whole idea of Jews killing Germans (S.S or otherwise) like cattle didn’t sit quite right with me. The ending kinda shit all over itself too in a way, it was like Tarantino said “FUCK IT! LET’S DO THE ENDING TO RESERVOIR DOGS!”
I know it wasn’t really a serious movie at all but I found it really disconcerting to watch.
I’m really not sure if I liked it or not. Damn shame. Part of me wishes I hadn’t seen it. Seriously guys.
- Where do you get your morality from, and please explain your morality.
- Like Mike beforehand has stated - this is a complicated issue. However, there is research, and evidence that I’ve seen and experienced with my own eyes that a lot of morality actually evolved. I’m not saying I know this for a fact, but why else would very young children who LITERALLY don’t know any better not just start killing other kids? For the most part your little toddlers are going to be very fair, they won’t like someone cheating at a game with them, calling them, or others names or true violence. I remember seeing at least one story about apes being very much the same. It makes sense to treat those fairly etc. that you live with, as they would do the same to you. This surely would help when it hits the fan and you need a friend to help defend your tribe. So some of my morals, I feel, I was born with at first. The rest, and the more tricky “morals” I have were “created”, or “learned” from my experiences in life, which is why they are not always a constant. Thus, some are a by-product of evolution
- Why do you accept evolution? Explain how you came to your conclusions.
- Mike said it best below:
- The science is sound.
- It makes sense, and it’s easy to see for yourself by observing the similarities between all life forms.
- What is the meaning and purpose of your life?
- I can’t quite find a meaning or purpose as of yet. That’s a work in progress, that will surely come one day soon. :)
- What is the greatest thing you have ever done for others?
- Helped them in times of need.
- Put their needs before my own, almost every time when it mattered.
- Held back what I really wanted to say or do, even when I’m angry.
- Loved them.
- Would you kill for atheism?
- Erm…killing over the non-belief in God isn’t an issue I can really see cropping up. I’m 99.99% sure I wouldn’t, unless a REALLY exceptional situation can arise that I cannot yet foresee.
- Why are you an atheist and consider your position valid?
- I’ve been a science geek ever since I was a young kid, and the stories just didn’t seem plausible after a few years.
- I’ve been mainly into astronomy ever since my youngest days, looking up at the stars in wonder. Once I read about the science behind it, and saw the beautiful pictures from the Hubble I just couldn’t cheapen it all by saying a “God” did it.
- I also don’t like the idea that someone is in control of my life and pulls the strings.
- My parents, didn’t indoctrinate me with fear, shame and bullshit.
- If you died and discovered a god existed, what would you say to he/she/it?
- Actually…Mike put it best again. I’d ask “why?”
- What religion is more dangerous in your eyes today and in the past?
- Christianity, Judaism (for the most part) Hinduism and Sikhism have all calmed down in the last few hundred years. There are certainly still large numbers of very dangerous religious zealots in these groups but not as much as the big winner of this title…
- Name three peaceful religions you have no issue with?
- The Jedi Order
- The Mechanicus Adeptus
- The Holy Light
- What would it take for you to believe in a god?
- Hard evidence. Seriously. Hard. Fucking. Evidence. In fact, how about gamma ray bursts that spelled out “Hi guys, it’s God - I’m real. This good enough for you, Ross?”
- Would the world be a better place without religion?
- Nowadays, yes.
- How do you feel about government and politics?
- I believe that they matter, and that democracy is the only true way forward for now. It certainly does work, but looking back it seems that for it work and become stable, you must pay in blood.
- If you could go back in time and kill Hitler/Stalin as babies so they would never kill the millions in the future, would you do it if time travel was possible?
- As kids? No. For a start that would have UNPREDICTABLE consequences. It could have meant the Germans would have won WWI, or even that the communist party would have taken hold in the Weimar Republic. However, if Stalin was dead too then maybe communism would never have taken route so easily worldwide without the Reds success in Russia.
- Why is stem cell research so important?
- I don’t know a massive amount about it, so I’ll stick with what Mike has said again below.
- The ability to find out the root cause of genetic disease, the ability to regrow organs/limbs that the body won’t reject, a greater understanding of the biology of the human body.
- Is abortion evil?
- Post-natal abortion is. Hehe, just kidding.
- Abortion isn’t evil, and neither is euthanasia.
- What would the circumstances be for you to approve of torture as an individual?
- I’d rather hope I never found a reason terrible enough.
- Should we try to save the animals from going extinct?
- It’s a tricky question once more. It is technically nature taking its course, however, to not do so would mean we cannot gaze in wonder at so much beauty in future times. We should try and have as little effect on the environment as possible, perhaps only saving those that we have driven to extinction in the first place needlessly.
- Do you approve of capital punishment? Explain.
- Absolutely not. An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.
- Do you believe in aliens, ghosts, spirits, souls, any supernatural forces?
- Fuck no. It’s either a work of nature or it isn’t.
- Would you sacrifice yourself for a loved one with a chance you may end up in hell for being an atheist?
- If the situation arose it would probably not be one that I could think long and hard about my decision. I’d like to think that I wouldn’t be a coward, and say yes.
- Explain in detail the process of death.
- I personally, can’t. Maybe in a few hundred years we’ll have a shot. :)
- Have you ever been dead?
- I’ve wished I was. Not anymore, and no.
What’s with that?
How can you even think that?
