Humor I usually write about topics like operating systems and computer refurbishing. Today let's ditch that trivial stuff and tackle something really important like... How have computers and operating systems been portrayed on TV and in films? It's time we seek our inner geek. With this hearty sign of approval we're on our way...

Very off-topic:

Though I do see this circular fallacy in science too. We have this dogma called logic (the foundation of science), which is a hard fact, because...it's logical.

...and we verify (or, more accurately, we try to falsify) logical, etc. conclusions against an actual Real World(tm).

There are many more groups on the planet than "Fundamentalist Christians" and "athiests", of course... :-)

Yep. That some people blindly attack a strawman like this.. I think we see people of similar cunning on the internet all the time.

My information is all about the mind, and that how it is divine.

This information is though often replaced with commonly accepted misunderstandings in religion, on wikipedia though.

Or even worse, completely fabricated trash like this:

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabir_ibn_Abd-Allah

"Both of the bodies were said to be fresh and intact while their open eyes were said to issue forth such divine light that the spectators' eyes were dazzled"

But yet we would have many, many more if not for "Christians", among few, of course... :p (almost starting with Gnostics - unfortunately for them, following the true deity and uncovering the real nature of the mainstream Christian one as an usurper, the Demiurge, is a dangerous thing to do ;p )
