  1. I'm sorry, I took it for granted that people would take my use of "topless" in the context I've been using, which is specifically bare breasts. Not bare legs. Not bare head. Let's keep the goalposts where they were. I don't see why Judea should be exempt from the lack of concern over bare breasts. Remember, when Adam and Eve ate the apple and became aware they were naked, they made garments out of fig leaves, and the Hebrew word chagowr used for those garments translates to a belt for the waist. IOW, they covered their loins only.

  2. @MigL I second your call to be careful with words, name-calling, and labelling, but, examine this: as a reply to Phi for All's critique. Does that set a tone of respect, or an inkling of an axe to grind? If points are to go unaddressed, leave them unaddressed, or, what is the purpose of the disparagement? The responses, assertions, and argumentation style used here deserved to be lampooned and harshly characterized. Again, I second your point to be careful and address the arguments, but there is a flavor of irrational disrespect coming through that perhaps cannot be well met with measured and reasoning counter-argument. Note "zero effort to quantify" a qualitative property: historical context. And in both prior responses PfA had couched things being in historical context! Irrational responses! I do think bigot is maybe too strong a word for what was a poorly formulated overgeneralization, but, TheVat artfully used it to illustrate a point, and zapatos drew an easy parallel to what was effectively name-calling/labelling by Dr Derp. I do think it makes sense to police bad-faith behavior if that starts to come through in our verbal arguments. There is an absence of malice in either TheVat or zapatos's posts where they use the term; they are indirect, it should not bully down discussion such a usage.

  3. I think the last major effort to deviate from von neumann architecture was the cell processor which was co developed by sony, toshiba and IBM sometime before 2010. There's nothing sinister or particularly remarkable about VNA. Its simply the easiest and most expedient method to connect standard computer components we have on hand. Its a basic BUS networking architecture.

  4. HTML is a system of tags used in internet text documents. That tell a browser how to format the content in webpages. It lacks logical operators and fundamental aspects of a programming language.

  5. No. It could be that God doesn't want to be sensed, that would be easy for an omnipotent being. It could be that God went some where else and is just not available right now. It could be God doesn't exist.

  6. If an analysis of atheist arguments against religion were conducted. A high percentage of them would revolve around claims that were context negative for accuracy. Its not a blanket statement. Its a fact. You only need to look as far as Sam Harris and others distancing themselves from everything atheist to recognize it for what it is.
