Probably most of the people on these forums are at least...smart.I mean game programming is a field that requires a lot of thinking.

Along my way to learn apis and all that stuff,I encountered a person that in my opinion had everything but time to build an amazing game,and he was very attached to...religion.Later he ended up quiting the world of game programming to spend more time with the church.

What I'm trying to say is: do you believe in religion? and do you believe in god?

Studies have shown that the atheism is growing,and in future,the atheism is gonna be the thing,not religion.

What do you think? God created people or was it the evolution?

I foresee either a flamewar or total lack of interest in the topic...

Definitely believe in Jesus Christ, here.

Interestingly, atheism requires faith. ph34r.png

Goodness... there was a 108 page discussion on this already...

 

I can enjoy discussing religion with people in person, but I hate it over the internet.

atheism requires faith in what? the definition of atheism means no faith

Why not both? It could be that God, whatever it is, created life and evolution did the rest. I'd like to believe that (our idea of) God only exists because we exist, therefore it depends on us just as much as we depend on it.

 

Then again I could be wrong.

It seems to me like you're setting up an argument about how intelligent people should be atheist.

this topic has probably been discussed a billion times on every single forum to ever exist, so why do we need to have another one.

 Besides, religion isn't very easy to objectively argue about, considering it is not based on logic, which often results in circular reasoning wink.png


The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.

If you´re talking about what I said. No, that's not my intention. I was merely contributing to the post, but now I regret doing it...thanks T.T

Let us not repeat this particular open-ended philosophical discussion.

 

If you have a specific philosophical point you would like to debate vis a vis religious beliefs, please start another thread with a suitably narrow focus.
