  • Can you run linux server applications on desktop linux?

    Best answer: Yes. Desktop linux is just server linux with a gui layer attached. Before the desktop was invented, everything was command line driven and some still prefer command line over desktop, especially on older computers where resources are scarce.

  • Is it better to believe in God than not believe?

    Best answer: Sometimes yes. It really depends on the individual as well as any religion they join that could potentially be detrimental to their well being. Some certainly benefit from belief in God and others do exceptionally well not believing.

    Best answer: I think on the surface it is somewhat easy to believe a God is necessary, so the question for most is who is this supposed God? Children raised with their holy books, tend to stay with those holy books and believe that version of this supposed God. Usually as teens, most theists question everything, including their religious beliefs as they seek the independence of adulthood. This is usually the point were some leave their religious beliefs behind or develop their own reasoning as to why to continue with their religious beliefs. Sometimes this includes switching holy books/religions because they still believe in some sort of God but believe certain holy books inadequate in explaining the true nature of God that they perceive to be true. When it comes to believing it is the God of the bible, it boils down to people who actually read the bible and find it compellingly true or most of the time people just believing the gossip that the bible is true. For those who actually read the bible, for christians the belief in their God is already established, so the reading is not so much to validate whether the bible is actually 100% true but rather to learn how their God ticks so when a magical event occurs, they never bother to wonder if the writers invented this magical power of God to explain an otherwise natural event. For example, where Lot's wife turns into a pillar of salt for looking back at the town that God was destroying. The region is known for pillars of salt, did one of these pillars resemble a woman and then the story was invented? Even if the christian is smart enough to think at this level, they choose to ignore the more plausible natural explanation over letting the magical scenario slide. There are certainly enough of truths in the bible, as well as enough generalizations to allow a person to convince themselves that the bible is the valid Word of God. Things like scholars of religions who study many holy books and not being swayed into christianity never crosses a christian's mind and for christians who figure it out and leave christianity, well the excuse is they were never real christians and didn't have a real understanding. So in a nutshell, christianity is like a good lie, it has all the makings of appearing to be true at the superficial level of reasoning, but if you think any deeper, the cracks begin to reveal themselves.

  • Will atheists ever learn that ‘more atheists are educated’ just means more atheists are Indoctrinated and programmed to think a certain way?

    Best answer: I agree. We are all programmed to think a certain way. The question is whose programming is the better fit for reality where both theists and atheists are wrong about certain things.

    Best answer: I agree. We are all programmed to think a certain way. The question is whose programming is the better fit for reality where both theists and atheists are wrong about certain things. Theists are wrong in the conclusion about Gods where as atheists can be wrong in other areas, such as believing global warming is not a scam perpetuated for financial gain. Educated people, while programmed, simply have a leg up on uneducated people when it comes to critical thinking, but educated people are still prone to irrationality that comes from our emotions. For every reason a theists can name for why they believe a God is necessary, an atheist will show you "better" reasons that demonstrate the blindness of their conclusion. Many atheists however are liberals/democrats and are blinded by the irrationality that goes with it. I would argue that both sides share willful ignorance when it comes to what they desire over the reality of the situation. I am a conservative atheist and while not prone to the irrationality of liberalism, I still have my moments of irrationality. The primary difference for myself, is I am always open to being proved wrong or irrational so that I can change for the better.

    Best answer: You are simply going back to where you have already been before your birth so the death itself is not the scary part. It's the not living anymore because while you are alive there is just too much to do in such a short life that is somewhat scary. I find as I get older, this too becomes less scary as a mark things off my to do list. Not everything is finite. For example, energy is infinite because it can neither be created, nor destroyed. What we worry about with our universe is not that it will disappear, but rather there needs to always be an imbalance of energy in order for work to be done. This is often referred to as the 2nd law of thermodynamics that states energy in a "closed" system will eventually equalize/balance out, meaning no more work can be done by the energy that is still there. We may not be in a closed system and there may be some kind of perpetual energy imbalance to keep things moving. Also our universe is expanding, but into what? The answer is the Cosmos itself that is made of dark matter/energy. The problem for our species is getting off of earth before our sun dies or before something collides with earth causing all life to go extinct. While it is easy to worry about anything, it is usually unnecessary.

    Best answer: It's hard to say since self employment is nothing more than taking over the full line of tasks involved in selling products and or services. The hardest thing about self employment is competition and self motivation. Competition is usually the hardest thing to overcome because many people are trying to do the exact same thing as you and it is up to you to earn a reputation that separates you from the pack where you can actually charge more because of that earned reputation. If your goal was to be a consultant, you would most likely need experience working for others first and earning your reputation while employed so that when you set out on your own you are already known in the industry.

    Best answer: A lot of it is just them being irrational, which also includes being right no matter how wrong you are. Democrats tend to follow their emotions over their intellect and have this bad idea of "equal outcome" vs. the better idea of "equal opportunity" that conservatives cherish. Equal outcome always drives societies to bankruptcy and to it's bottom rung since all "incentives" are removed, because why bother if the government is just going to rob you of your hard work and inspiration. Equal opportunity solves this by rewarding people for their hard work and inspiration, which "inspires" more hard work and inspiration if it is going to pay off. Conservatives want people earning minimum wage to understand it is about gaining skills and knowledge to move up from minimum wage because minimum wage will never be "enough" no matter how high your "forcibly" raise it because that wage will always be a "portion" of the total costs to produce those products and services. Democrats think the rich can afford to pay more and are under the delusion that a higher minimum wage "helps" those people at that rung of the ladder afford a living. The reality is that you bring everyone who got a few rungs up the ladder back down to minimum wage, thus "hurting" people rather than helping. It also drives "costs" up which hurts everyone including businesses attempting to be competitive turning to cheaper automation or reducing their work force and demanding more work from fewer workers to remain competitive.

    Best answer: Plenty changes since our thoughts produce our feelings and there is a change in thinking between believer and nonbeliever. The feelings certainly change as a result. Many ex-theists claim to feel a burden has been lifted from them, while many ex-atheists claim to see things in a new spiritual light that makes them feel joyful. Regardless of changes or no changes, it does not prove God is not real because there is an assumption that God is good and that God cares about humans, where neither has to be true. I think a better route would be the natural order of existence, which is from simple to complex over time. Nothing naturally begins as a "finished product" yet these claimed super Beings magically do just that. I understand the confusion in trying to figure out which came first the chicken or the egg but the natural order makes this simple, the egg came first. God believers feel that Intelligence has to come first, because how does anything get built/created. Nonbelievers favor natural formation over Intelligent Creation and while they are usually unaware of the natural order, natural formations does fit this natural order where Intelligent Creations don't.

    Best answer: The original reason for the season was in fact the season. In particular, the celebration of the return of our sun on Dec 25th as in the days begin to become noticeably longer in the northern hemisphere were the celebration originated. At the time, Dec 22 was the shortest day and it took another 3 days to visibly notice the longer day. Of course christianity took this celebration of the sun and replaced it with their Son even though the events around the supposed birth of Jesus would have it in the spring or fall, not the winter months. The season has become commercialized where the reason now is to encourage consumers to buy seasonal cr*p at premium prices and stress everyone out with get togethers.

    Best answer: You have to hardwire to the modem/router to get the "real" speed of the isp. Wifi is more to do with the internals of your house than you isp. For example, a computer hardwired to the router may get the full 50mbs download speed, but a laptop on wifi at the other end of the house may only get 2mbs due to distance from the router, walls and other obstacles in the way and even the type of wifi adapter built into your laptop. Sometimes you can be next to the router with your laptop and still not get the full download speed because there is a compatibility issue with the wifi adapter of the laptop and the router. This is not the problem of the isp.

    Best answer: Being smart/intelligent is not about knowing or passing anything, it is about having the "capacity" to figure things out. Many people lack that capacity but overly intelligent people have struggled with school because the level of intelligence taught is too low and not of interest to motivate these people. Albert Einstein was thought to be of below average intelligence because he too was failing his classes, but the problem was not with his intelligence, it was with the school system. It takes an extra amount of patience for overly intelligent people to plod along and pass our subpar educational system where they usually do better at the college level. It is also not uncommon for smart people to think they are not so smart because they can sort of see how much they don't know and they don't really care about their intelligence level but rather have a curiosity about most things and just want to figure them out.

    Best answer: Our brains work like an electromagnet. The magnetic field that the brain produces is our mind and where our awareness resides. When people describe spirituality, they are usually describing their emotional well-being and they want to grow spiritually so that their emotional health also grows. Our thoughts produce our feelings so it is the state of mind that we seek to change to grow emotionally/spiritually. The only connection between the physical body and the spirit is that the physical body is like the battery for the brain that generates the mind/soul/spirit. That is not to necessarily say the mind cannot be unplugged from the body and hooked up to another battery to continue after this battery is dead but this seems to be what we are dealing with, that our minds and who we are, are the results of this magnetic field. Radio waves that contain information are also magnetic fields. The big question is can the information that is us live on after our battery dies or does it become like a radio station that goes off the air for good?
