I think we're at the point where people want their daily dose of the internet - be it facebook or youtube - more than TV. I'm not saying we're TV independent just yet, but give it 10-20 years. Companies are realizing that they can offer service on the internet, like the NFL, which will be streaming games on its website this season. Others are sure to follow that example

I think you misunderstood me, I simply think that the best way to argue against an argument is arguing it on it's own grounds. And I do of course believe that the bible is entirely human made.

Ps.Sorry for the late response, been a bit busy with the holidays and whatnot.

That is true, but you defend the possibility that it may be true to a very amazing extent. What I said was merely to reply to when you said that the book either is or isn't true. I was just stating the possibility that it can be both.

This is blu3boy, by the way

No, I simply look at it objectively, like I do most things. Which is why I classify myself as an agnostic-atheist rather than a flat out atheist.

A society that robs an individual of the product of his effort is not strictly speaking a society, but a mob held together by institutionalized gang violence. QoTD

So basically every single capitalist society isn't a society?
