I guess you wouldn't understand where I'm coming from if you come from a different side than me. Some people believe God doesn't interfere at all, I believe he does little this's and that's.

Of course.

When you find $20 on the floor, "It's a miracle!"

When millions are starving in Africa, "God works in mysterious ways".

I think believers will always find a way to defend their religion because it's so vague to begin with. They twist it and pick and choose and rationalize until it works with their argument. I really don't care if they do believe or not, but what I hate is when they give this sense that they think they're better than you. Same goes to atheists that think that way, even though I completely agree with them.

Oh my, this isn't your average everyday athiest.

This is, an internet athiest.

I don't praise God when I find $20 mate, and I don't call it God's work that children starve in Africa. Quit being a stereotypical dicksqueeze.

I'm glad you acknowledge that most of my fellow atheists are not like me, I wouldn't want them to get blamed for my jimmyrustlin'.

But seriously, you have no argument. An omnipotent deity could help everyone that needed help, and don't say that he only helps those that "deserve it" because that's blatant bullshit.

We can keep arguing in circles and you can keep making fallacies, but at the end of the day we're both wasting our time. Good day sir.

Making fun of religion isn't a crime in itself, but it is grounds for detainment and is one of the grounds for breaking up a protest.

For starters, you said the government and legality.

Secondly, I believe that God does save some people some of the time in exceptional situations. However, a policeman isn't always on the spot, and he can't always act.

We'll find out one day.

(Before you say, "well then God favors people hurr durr." Some people are more innocent than others, some people just truly deserve to be protected, despite free will)

I don't know where you are, but the one great thing about free speech in Canada is that you can't do that because that is called "being a douchebag"

Free speech in Canada is basically "You are allowed to do or say whatever you want, as long as what you say or do does not infringe upon the rights of others" Which is basically what you are doing.
You can say why you disagree with him, but you shouldn't insult his beliefs unless you are OK with people doing the same to you, you intolerant bastard

You seem to be assuming there's no punishment for doing wrong. The government isn't going to stop somebody from murdering you, because they aren't there to control everyone, that's not their duty. God will punish the wrongdoers, but will not stop them because everyone has free will.

At least, that's my (and other Christians') beliefs.

So if a policeman comes across a person being murdered, he doesn't have to stop it, he just has to make sure the murderer is arrested afterwards?

Companies don't necessarily aim to hire the smallest number of people, but rather seek to minimize costs and maximize profit. Otherwise they'd just hire a few people to do many different jobs, which would be less productive than dividing labor among more employees.

Profit is the difference between revenue and costs. More employees = more cost, but they also mean more revenue and more productivity, provided there are enough jobs for them to do.

Think of it this way: if a low-skill employee brings in $8/hr of revenue, then if he is paid a $7/hr minimum wage he remains profitable and it's worth keeping him. However, if the minimum wage is raised to $9, that employee is now a liability and will be fired (of course productivity is estimated, but I'm using exact numbers for clarity).
More productive employees will benefit because their salaries will now be raised. However, more productive employees had a higher chance of getting raises or promotions anyway.
#310 - kerplunking (02/18/2013) [-]
Britain had no minimum wage until 1999. There was no significant corresponding rise in unemployment afterwards.

That's not to say that a minimum wage which is too high won't have an affect on jobs, but I think that a minimum wage equal to a "living wage" would be fine.

That's correct. Blacks hold majority. By 1%. Followed by *drumroll* whites, which easily double hispanics in number of people on welfare. That sure is a lot of bitching you're doing over 1%
User avatar
#315 - konradkurze (02/19/2013) [-]
right
whites on welfare because they cant get jobs, or at least well-paying ones, blacks on welfare because they dont want jobs

then again i dont know the full story of american welfare....blacks might get race-base 'pity welfare' that gives them more than white people....i know the blacks in australia get twice as much as any white does on welfare (like $600 a week just because theyre black)
does usa do likewise?

Interestingly enough, do you know you can get varied forms of assistance? So for instance one person could get $120 a month in food stamps, while another could get $400 a month. Now I would like to see a breakdown of that by race. Or how about duration based on race? How long do whites stay on welfare vs blacks? How many blacks are employed by SS that handle these cases vs whites? You are naturally predisposed to help those of your race more than others, so that could have a lot to do with it (also...racism, yes I know astounding implication...blacks can be racist too!!). I do have to agree with konrad for the most part...black people do get it a bit easier when it comes to welfare. When my wife went in for assistance way back when we needed it, she was hassled to the point of almost crying, yet all the blacks were well taken care of, no questions asked. Sure I'm making a generalization based on a segmented observation, however, I feel that the generalization would find justification based on the stats I asked for above.
