    Prove to me that he doesn't.

    No, the burden of proof does not lie on the atheist.
    If you want proof, here's 50 simple ones that even a religious person should be able to grasp: http://godisimaginary.com/

    If the TC is asking us to prove in a deity, I don't see what the problem is in asking him to the same thing. If in fact, it is true that there is no Creator I don't see what the problem is, he should be able to whip up the 'true' answer immediately.
    and you're site is just atrocious. As a Jew I would like to dispute some of those points.
    #1/2 prayer. Think of prayer as a request to your father. After all Don't we say that Gd is like our father? and sometimes your father simply says 'NO'. (On the side, the site gave examples of enormous caliber such as curing cancer, things that are life-changing to everyone. Maybe that person deserved to get sick and a simple prayer is not adequate or the answer is simply 'no', the person needed to get sick for punishment or whatever Gd decided is. If every answer was 'yes' then the world wouldn't be able to function, little kids asking for spider-man powers or a punished student asking for an injury (or death) of a teacher or what not who punished him, who in the child's eyes was mistreated, I can go on and on but I won't. ALSO - I know this is a bit superstitious, but my rabbi gave over this psalm to me to say when an object is misplaced, dozens of items I've been looking for over hours, once I say the prayer within 10minutes the item is in my hands. I am NOT using this as a refute that prayers are everything, but try the little things. especially if you're not the believer, maybe your father will be a bit more inclined to listen to you if you start of small instead of bombarding Him with such high demands) This reminds me of a joke I've heard; This man late to a meeting was circling his office looking for parking. "Gd, if You find me a spot I will give 5% of the profits to charity. No spot. 'Gd, I'll give 20% to charity! no spot. "I'll sponsor an entire fundraiser! As he pulls by a car leaves, giving him a spot, the man looks up and says 'Deals off, I found a spot'. So in other words, its what you make of it. Sometimes prayer doesn't actually cure that person of cancer but it helps the person, gives the person strength, otherwise he would have lost all hope and would've simply died due to lack of will.
    #3. Jews.. yea, not saying anything about any other religion but we've been known from day 1 (sorta, or at least in our books, Adam the first man created) and we're still here.
    #4. My post is long enough as it is so I don't want to go too deep, but personally I really don't see why science needs to oppose religion, I see them coinciding. Why does there need to be ONLY science, or ONLY religion, I believe that Gd created the world, and like any novelist (especially those of sci-fi or fantasy) set 'rules' for that universe. In video games or books, where magic exists, someone argues- like in the case of Diablo when the DH was announced, some complained that the crossbows needed to be reloaded and it 'broke immersion' that it had rapid fire, (I'm not here to argue this point but as an example), people who didn't care or whatever argued back 'Oh, you're okay with a wizard shooting fireballs from his fingertips but not self-reloading crossbows?' and to me that is a stupid argument, the creators of diablo made a Universe-Sanctuary, and usually the rule of thumb is that it is generally the same as our universe unless specifically noted. So the creators pointed out that a wizard CAN control the elements and conjure up a fireball yet, being that it wasn't pointed out otherwise, crossbows SHOULD work like a normal crossbow [in our world]. It might be a crude example, but Gd created the Universe and SET His own rules [of physics, of biology, of chemistry, etc] and set that into how this world works. Just because humans are of limited knowledge and things and theories are newly discovered or re-discovered and sometimes completely change or contradict old ones, is that Gd's fault? Once again, I apologize for the poor example, it is late and I can't think of something better at the moment, if it wasn't clear, the point of bringing in Diablo is that Gd created the world and created the 'blueprints' of different studies to sort of get the world to function on a set of 'rules' instead of things just being completely in disarray (which things would also be if ALL answers were answered with a 'yes', as shown in some 'crazy requests' that I brought up before.

    And I can't even read the rest, besides for my post being huge as it is, reading this far proved to me that this site is crap.

    But to note, if anyone else wants to have a further discuss this I am fine with that BUT I am NOT a rabbi, nor priest nor scholar, nor professor, but a simple kid who picked this up from observation and life. So I might be able to discuss some things with you, though I doubt I will have EVERY answer, or that all of them will be 100% clear :P
    good night

    posted a message on Steve Jobs dead
    During the entire Bush era, Steve Jobs was fine. only 2 & 1/2 years into Obama's term, he's dead. the evidence is clear: Obama kills Jobs.

    Additionally some quotes from him that I find very inspirational:
    "Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle... Stay hungry. Stay foolish." -Steve Jobs

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs 1955-2011

    posted a message on Opinions on T-P strategy?
    I usually play Zerg but when I play Terran against Protoss I try to rush in reapers, while building up a force of marauders and marines. Get the speed upgrade and send in about half a dozen or so to the Protoss base and just rush in and destroy all the pylons rendering the buildings useless, no more creating more units and no more cannons, if available. If I have the M&Ms ready I clean up with them, if not I keep harassing like this until I do. Don't really play PvP, but I'v done this tactic on medium and lower difficulties against the computer. Any expert advice/suggestions on this?

    posted a message on Info on Gems and replacing them
    I apologize if this was mentioned, I did a search and looked on the wiki but couldn't find anything. Are gems like runestones where they can be plucked out of gear to be placed somewhere else and if you do replace it with something does it get destroyed, like the Wow gems?

    posted a message on Anyone else think that the WD skills aren't as 'epic' as the others?
    Don't get me wrong, I love all of the Witch Doctor's spells, and the summoning 'style' that he uses for most of his skills is definitely crazy cool, but is it just me or do the spells, especially the latter ones not feel as 'epic' as some of the other classes?

    posted a message on Will internet quality affect gameplay quality?
    Quote from Shoji

    I think you all misunderstand what data your computer (dubbed as "Client") draws from Battlenet/D3 servers. If you understand what data you pull from the servers, you will understand that your connection speed does not matter so much.

    The "Client" - your computer - pulls the following information:
    - Pulls dungeon/area layout once you load the area.
    - Pulls NPC/Destructibles as they "appear" on your screen (this defeats any map-hacks)
    - Pulls NPC/Destructible "item drops" as they happen

    Information sent from the "Client" to Bnet/D3 servers:
    - Your interaction with NPCs, including combat.
    - Your movement across the map, telling the servers what information to send
    - When you kill an NPC or destroy a Destructible that yields a loot roll

    Some other information that I'm not familiar with is how the client-server information is pulled/sent when playing with others. Perhaps the connection is based on the party leader's connection. Perhaps the leader's computer is the one that submits what NPC's are doing and when you are taking damage? This would make Hard Core solo play easier than Hard Core with groups if you have a poor connection.

    Edit:: clarified last sentence.
    That's basically what I'm asking, how back and forth is the client-server interaction, is it like an MMO or online game that requires constant feedback or something that only needs occasional information which would make lag less likely.

    posted a message on Will internet quality affect gameplay quality?
    I know that an internet connection is required even for single player mode but will having poor internet affect the game play quality or create lag? I guess it depends whether the server-side is constantly being updated and such with an MMO or connected game. Does anyone know?

    Honestly, I'm a skill fiend. The thing that intrigues me the most in most RPG or similar games is the types of skills and abilities the character has. And the multitude that the runes add only hype my up more than anything.

    posted a message on rune effects changing to random?
    not really a big fan of the random rune, but unless they make specific runes only be dropped by specific monsters to begin with it won't really matter. If all runes could be dropped from the same monster (or all monsters) than its not really that a big of a difference, the only difference is that it 'rolled' its rune type before or after you picked it up.. say there is a 20% of any specific rune when dropped off a goatman, so 20% of it dropping a gold one, but if its random than you receive a grey rune and it has a 20% of becoming anything. but if originally, goatmen drop gold but zombies drop obsidian than it might get annoying in later levels when you are specifically hunting zombies to specifically get obsidian. Though if there is a way to reset the rune to grey and let it 'reroll' its type than it might make things easier (but I hope they don't charge you too much, if anything it all).
