I disagree with that. Richard Dawkins is pretty respected by a lot of people, but I don't know anyone who would support him as the most influential person ever. Or even in the top 10 for that matter.

Okay, I'll try this from a different angle then.

Say there was a news station, that decided that they were going to make a 100 most influential persons list and show it across the nation. And they put Richard Dawkins as number 1. Most people would either
1. Not know who that is
2. Not care
3. Realize it's just wrong and stupid and move on with their lives.

The bottom line is that he is in no way the most influential, and no one would ever claim that he is, so that point is moot.

hey hey don't put shit into different direction, that book of famous 100 people is known to many people, if you dont know then go read and have knowledge.

Nice man.

The piece of advice I'd give you, coming from someone who was stuck at 405 for a long ass time (I'm pulling 440 now), is as soon as you stop hitting PRs every week, change it up. Stop attempting 1RMs, and just switch to rep training, even high rep training. Sets of 8, 10, and even 12 are legitimately fantastic for improving your deadlift, that's how I got out of my almost year long plateau.

so being white and separatist will make all his opinion wrong?
User avatar #71756 - marinepenguin (06/09/2014) [-]
Well there are lots of problems with his list, the link itself, and with your logic.

1. It could be incredibly biased because of his personal views
2. The list only states how people are influential, not necessarily correct or "good"
3. The site is called "Muslim bulletin", so that shows that the information that you are receiving is, itself, biased.
4. Being influential doesn't really mean anything other then they effected history in a large way.

I would agree that Muhammad is an incredibly influential figure, as he spawned one of the largest religions of the modern world, along with Jesus, Buddha, and Abraham (all mentioned in the list fairly close to Muhammad). But I honestly wouldn't have ranked him at the number 1 spot. This sort of list comes down, largely, to opinion. Thus it is hard to use as a piece for an argument.

Yes. I think it's actually near impossible, if not completely impossible to find secular purpose. People say enjoy life and all that, but I think in the end they will find the void still as glaring as ever. That's just my idea though. I'm not sure what grown ups do, or if this is just my teenage brain speaking, but this is what I've experienced.

Yeah, I actually think some people simply can't handle that worldview where there is no real justice... I know, I know fedora tip etc blah blah euphoric but that's just my thought.. because I talked to a Christian guy who basically based.. his strongest argument for God on morality, that if there was no absolute morality then God would not be the absolute authority or something.. I mean, I respect peoples belief, but I can see how it at surface seems like a horrific impossible way to live, saying there's no justice.

I agree with you on what you have said. But I do think that since we have become sentient being, we can create our own purposes in a way.

I like to think that I'm going to make myself the best me I can be, physically and mentally. I also have made it a point to help others whenever possible. Doing these things give my life some meaning. So while in the grand scheme of things, my life is utterly pointless, I can at least make those lives around me a little better.

Yes. I'm talking things that are more.. sensitive, as the issue of purpose, for example. Or justice.

Huh. I actually disbelieve most of those things, but one of them may be true. I'm supposed to believe what's true after all, if one of them turns out to be true, then so be it of course.
User avatar #71727 - marinepenguin (06/08/2014) [-]
Well when pertaining to those topics, I think people need to have a sense of purpose, a sense of meaning. And people also need a kind of order. Because if you don't believe that there is a god and we are here only because we have evolved, we don't have any purpose other then to simply survive. Most people find that to be depressing, they can't accept something like that, so creating the idea of a God would give them purpose, direction, and a code to stand by.

As for justice, the same with purpose, there really is no such thing as justice outside of our human society. For us, if there is no law or ultimate justice, then what is to stop others from simply killing or destroying anything that they please? Once again the whole idea that there is no order, and it's anarchy within the world is a terrible idea for most people. And a God, which brings an idea of an afterlife depending on how "well" you lived your life helps push people in certain directions.

This is just my personal theory.

Rome post Caesar was less corrupt? Are you SHITTING ME? Let's look at the man himself: Knocked up a foreign leader and gave her claim on the empire that lead to a massive civil war in his death, real paragon of a just society there. The same people that killed Julius ruled afterwords, until Augustus brought them into line, yet his enlightened rule started the decline of representation in the empire, and left them with Emperors such as Caligula, and Nero. Bye the time the empire was in free fall the each legion named an Emperor even while the barbarian hordes beset them! All this in an atmosphere of racism and distrust of foreigners that caused them to betray the Goths and led them to sack Rome. Yeah society real enlightened after Caesar lemme tell ya what.

As for the rest: Society becomes apathetic, the system becomes corrupt. This happened to us in the 1920s, and led to the Great Depression. If it wasn't for the strong leadership of FDR we wouldn't have emerged from that. At the same time we had actual fascist sympathizers who wished to install such a regime in our country, anarchists, and communists (who actually had an argue as capitalism had "failed). Today is the same fucking thing with the Tea party replacing the fascists, ultra liberals calling for socialism, and idiots willing to listen to either. No a fucking purge is not the key. We needed an FDR instead we got two Taft presidents and a pack of idiots convinced their parties are the key, and will only make it worse.

Well... Julius Caesar was really meant to be an example of a great leader, somebody who ultimately led (Despite corruption) Rome to be better off than it originally was.

Some comments seem to talk about aggression and war, but that's not really true. War does NOT make a civilisation powerful. Expansion and technology makes a civilisation powerful. Why are we so busy fighting these wars over a world of limited resources when there are billions of planets out there waiting to be cultivated, if only we could figure out how to put the pieces we have together?

I assure you, however, I meant Julius Caesar in the sense of being a great and popular leader who gave his civilisation a real direction. Maybe it doesn't need to be a great leader - the US was founded on the Constitution, after all. My point is, however, that we need a common goal... we need direction.
#104 - dwarfman (06/07/2014) [-]
Neither side has presented a leader worth a damn to fall in line behind. Even worse you have the pretenders that small minorities treat like a messiah Fuck you Ron Paul . Julius is a poor example. Augustus walked into Rome, proclaimed himself as Emperor, beat down Marc and his whore, added Egypt into the empire, then proceeded to piss all over the senate and their corrupt ways.

As of right now Teddy and FDR are rolling in their graves, and we still haven't reregulated those responsible. You talked about red tape? Yeah the average joe blow doesn't need it, even if you fuck up only your shit is at risk, with the largest companies, they fuck up we're all at risk.
#106 - derpination (06/07/2014) [-]
If we gain more resources, it will give people more freedom with their money, and it will allow them to do what they really want to. But that can't happen under our current system - we have government elects for 4 or 5 years who sell out to try and remain in office.

Meanwhile, we have banks telling the whole economy how much it needs them, whilst at the same time bleeding it dry. It all needs to change.
User avatar #107 - dwarfman (06/07/2014) [-]
The founders separated Church and State, they failed to separate the third: Business. The Federal government, as set up by Teddy, and continued by every president Red or blue, until the second rate actor Regan, were supposed to be watch dogs. Simple laws would fix this: term limits, remove citizens united, forbid senators/congressmen/presidents from becoming lobbyists when they retire. Our parents allowed this to happen when they put Regan in power, and now we're feeling the consequences.

We some how manage to fix that, the rest will fall into place. The biggest threat to our freedoms will always be internal, our founders warned us about that. You want me to even go futurist here? If we finally tackle the corruption, we'll have a new enemy: China, and would have to combat their undo influence on us. I want that to happen, I want the second cold war as it would be the catalyst to spur advancement.
#108 - derpination (06/07/2014) [-]
Firstly, I completely agree with the statement on banks, and with Reagan - in fact, it can be traced back to the repeal of the 1933 Glass-Steagall act, which separated commercial and investment banking en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass%E2%80%93Steagall_Legislation

Secondly, whilst I agree that wars generally do lead to advancements in technology, why does it have to be this way? Why can't we (I'm a Brit, by the way, but I include the US and the EU as a team) just go and start doing our own thing without giving a care to China? Why do we need the fear of war to do great things?
#109 - dwarfman (06/07/2014) [-]
Competition and Strife breed innovation. Ya know why Europeans and the Chinese were more advanced than Africa or the new world? In the later they had plenty of resources and conflicts weren't a matter of life or death for the populace With the big exception of Mexico, as the Aztecs sought to sacrifice their neighbors to their gods, consequently they were far more advanced than most. Europe has had ethnic strife for it's entire existence, and if you'd notice technological advancement in the Roman empire slowed to a crawl when they basically owned the world. China had the same environment during the waring states period, then again when the mongol tribes threatened their northern boarder.

Now it doesn't need to be war. You know how those hippie bastards say civilization will end when we run out of oil? That's fucking dumb. When it even starts to show that it is unsustainable Here's a hint: that's now , the economy will respond and innovate. Right now we have two big energy companies that are seeking alternatives: Shell and Exxon-Mobile. Ya know why their gas costs so much more? They're offsetting their R&D budgets.

That's the crux of what causes human beings to technologically advance: To take what your neighbor has, to defend against your neighbors, or mother nature decides she really doesn't like us.

Then perhaps Augustus is a far better example - I won't refute that. And I completely agree with you - you look at arseholes like Dick Fuld who collapsed a major bank and plunged thousands into debt and home repossession, I completely agree. And yet, at the same time, you have people like my professors (Physicists) trying to figure out how the universe works, who barely get to see their own kids because they spend so long studying and researching.

We need to take money away from all the finance and the faff and bureaucracy, and we need to give it to expansive industries - space flight, particle physics, chemical companies, computing, etc etc... and we need to use those new technologies to expand our resources (For example, Virgin Galactic is looking to try to start mining asteroids - something I wholeheartedly agree with).

No homo, can you post a pic of your arms. Or just your muscles, this sounds so gay but I'm just curious as to how ripped you are.
#112 to #111 - marinepenguin (08/09/2014) [-]
No worries bro, I've seen you on Fitness some, so I can see why you'd be curious.

I'm about upper 180s in this photo. Currently in the lower 190s now. I wouldn't say I'm ripped, but I'm trying to get there.

My goal is to reach a lean 200, and I have more fat on me now then I'd like.

What supplements you on?
User avatar #114 to #113 - marinepenguin (08/09/2014) [-]
I only take Whey Protein
User avatar #115 to #114 - donnybergerstory (08/09/2014) [-]
Oh. I just started taking 100% Whey Protein. I used to take this: www.gnc.com/GNC-Total-Lean-Lean-Shake-BURN-Chocolate-Fudge/product.jsp?productId=33755596

Then I dropped 15 lbs and I am onto whey protein.
User avatar #116 to #115 - marinepenguin (08/09/2014) [-]
That's cool. I've only every used Whey, I'm not going to start trying to actually slim down until I hit around 210 or if I put on too much fat in the process. I'm not sure how big I could get while staying natty though.

User avatar #103 to #102 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I'm flattered! I'm sure I could help you, what are you wanting to know exactly?
User avatar #104 to #103 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I wanted some advice on a few aspects of the workouts ive been doing the past month
I've run a mile everyday before lifting as a bit of cardio and to warm up; I don't run longer (which i easily could) because I dont want to be fatigued for my actual workout
Do you think this beneficial? I'm aiming to be a bit more muscular and to lose my excess fat
Also, I wanted advice on the exercises that I've been doing; should i post them all?
User avatar #105 to #104 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Well first off, running a mile before lifting isn't a terrible idea, it'll help condition you and keep your cardiovascular system in good shape. BUT, jogging is hell on your knees and if you do too much you can actually impair your ability to gain lean muscle mass. So if I were you, I would do about 3 or 4 40 yard sprints for a warmup instead. It'll condition you, burn fat, builds muscle throughout your body, and isn't hard on the joints.

As for the exercises, post away.

Couple tips here. You have a TON of volume, and it's really unnecessary. You should really only have 4-6 movements per workout max, usually centered around one big lift, which you don't seem to be doing any of those besides bench. So say for back, I'd do Deadlifts, then pull-ups (instead of lat pulldowns), bent over rows (barbell preferable), and some kind of rear delt movement, and then I would probably add in one bicep movement.

You also seem to use a ton of machine work, does the gym you go to have any free weights or barbells? Those will have more carryover to real life and a higher amount of strength and size gain compared to machines.

Lastly, switch it up from 4x10 sometimes man, throw in some 5x5 (considered the best combination of strength and size), 5/3/1 (second best), 10x3 (yes, 10 sets of 3, lots of size gain, lots of strength gain). Toy around with the sets and reps, stick with one for a few months and see how you grow. Find out what works best for you. I'm really tall for a lifter so 5x5 tends to work best for me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
I feel like I should haveve included this; I do all these over 5 days, with back on Monday, abs and shoulders on Tuesday, legs on Wednesday, chest on Thursday, and triceps and biceps on Friday
Do you still feel that I should do less movements?
User avatar #110 to #109 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Yes, I had assumed that you split it up.

Like I said, you only really need 4-6 movements centered around one main lift. Any more then that and you risk overtraining, especially when you work out 5 days a week. I would know, I used to do what you are doing, except I went 6 days a week. After awhile I would start getting hurt, my lower back, then my upper back, then my hip, or my knee. Now that I toned it down I have absolutely no injuries and I feel better then ever.
