Iunnoh man.

The Hagia Sophia was made before the assembly line and robotics, effectively it was made by hand, and the labor was not slave labor either, since Slavery wasn't a thing in Byzantium.

But the International Space Station is pretty neat too, except that it's not made by man, per sei.

Technologically speaking, Pyramids, Hagia Sophia, and the Vatican, are way more impressive than the space station.

You're really going to be that ******* stupid again, aren't you? Arguing religion vs science based on Structure. Really. I thought we were passed this.


Personally, imo, what makes a structure great, is based on the means available to build it, and the over all impressiveness of said structure. Aesthetics is pretty big too.

Welcome to FJ. You can leave your logic and ability to reason at the door, but don't forget your butthurt and ****************** rage, as you will be needing it. And under no circumstances should you forget that religion and science are completely and totally incompatible, regardless of the fact that they concern completely different things, science being what one can see, religion being what one can feel/believe.

That and the Space Station is already falling apart and requires maintenance every so often, where as the pyramids have been around for thousands of years now.

But then again the structure is much more simpler, and rocks really don't need to be maintained.

Ultimately this isn't even an argument of fact logic or reasoning.

It's just what's pretty, and what isn't.

I for one figure that Science and Religion are vastly different, and should not be argued since they're irrelevant to each-other to begin with.

This Generation of Atheistic Kids and Religious Zealots. I swear, you're all the worst.

Aren't there bigger things to worry about than if there is a god or not? Like. I dunno. Getting a job?

Define interesting.

I met a cripple once who was referred to as interesting. I hope certainly you mean nothing like that.

Although it'd be kinda cool to be a cripple.

Cripples get chicks yo.
But then again I'm the gay, so what does it matter?

"Aren't there bigger things than if there is a god or not?"
A god, by definition, is basically the most important, "biggest" thing there is, in classical thought. I find your reversal of this common trend interesting.

Follow up on the whole job thing.

I'm not pegging you for one, but I just hope that you aren't the kind of person that would ask why get a job, and why make money.

Personally? I love money. I like it a lot. It makes me happy, and it makes the people whom I surround myself with, happy, so long as they're happy, well.. I am too. To me, contentness is the ultimate goal in life.

Pardon my English. It is not my first language.

Personally, money means very little to me. However, I do aspire to get a job. Why? Because I feel a need (mostly from my religion/philosophy, but that's another discussion) to contribute positively to society.

I enjoy contemplating on metaphysics and eternity and other such things (including how the human mind can be aware of itself, one of my favorites) mostly because it gives me something to do.

And also, your English is excellent, you are more fluent than a number of my native-speaking friends are.

Thank you! I appreciate the compliment.

I'm spiritual in nature, and value the knowledge, I'm just pointing out that, at this point in my life, it's unreasonable to perseue said knowledge, when I have more pressing matters.

I'm realistic.
The existence of an omnipotent being, be it an existence, or lack there of, is irrelevant to my life, maybe not to others, but to me, and I'm pretty sure, the average person, it is.

As a realist, many 'great questions' don't seem so great to me. I've often wondered about the big picture, and I still find myself questioning it. But I accept my humanity, I accept my morality. I will no longer try and comprehend eternity, metaphysics, or things of this nature.

Instead, I'll just go to work, make money, and live life to its fullest.

Also yes, I have a strong sense of irony, I'm actually impressed you caught that. Most people would call me a nihilist (Even though I have many goals in life.)

Random digression:
Nihilism is just an excuse for "I'm lazy and wont get a job, so I'm going to question why get a job in the first place"
