Sometimes you hear about murderers being sentenced to hundreds or more years imprisonment for their crimes. As far as I understand, this is done so that factors that would lower the sentence are…Continue

Funny thing happened to me today (not that funny, but I have to start somewhere).I had bought some comic books and was cycling home when the bag fell from my bike (stupid weakened binders), spilling…Continue

Freek replied to Simon Mathews's discussion 'Should drinking to excess during pregnancy be a crime?'
"This is a double-edged sword, as any claims towards poisoning (of a fetus) will strengthen the case against abortion; if it is illegal to poison them, it will certainly be illegal to outright destroy them. I assume that thr pro-life movement will…"

Freek replied to Griffin Buckerfield's discussion 'I don't even know what to say...'
"Disregarding the misconcenptions on brain usage and the development of humanity (which have already been addressed by the other members), my main issue is with the following sentence: "That's why I don't understand…"

Freek commented on _Robert_'s blog post 'PI = 4'
"As long as you keep zooming in into the circle, you will see that the corners don't turn into a line (as the picture suggests), so in essence this picture is still the same as in the 3rd and 4th panel. While the method above is unsuitable for…"

Freek replied to Christopher Hollis's discussion 'Seeking opinions on my current situation....'
"I understand your problem; while I have little trouble sitting quiet when I'm at my parents' and they pray for their meal, I would feel conflicted if I had to pray out loud. It may feel less conflicting for you to ask your mother to do…"

Freek replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'How do you reverse the brainwashing of a child??'
"Although I'm not very familiar with the adoption process. I assume that there will be several talks between you and the foster child(ren) to see if you and they 'match'. My suggestion would be to be honest about your beliefs, and tell…"

Freek replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'What cell phone carrier does Satan have?'
"It looks like the dark lord is on one of those roaming plans, but instead of roaming between networks, he roams between souls. Clearly this one has good reception."

Freek replied to Unseen's discussion 'Medical ethicss re: new ebola serum'
"In the US that may be the case, but here in Europe I know of at least a couple of instances where that procedure was used."

Freek replied to Unseen's discussion 'Medical ethicss re: new ebola serum'
"I think there is something called a mercy procedure, in which experimental drugs can be used as a last ditch effort, since not applying the medicine would be worse than what the potential side effects could do. Doing this wouldn't bypass the…"

Freek replied to Gallup's Mirror's discussion '15% off for praying in public?'
"Interesting, I didn't know that offering a discount for telling a script is illegal if the script has religious associations. Regarding the national anthem, I was more thinking along the lines of patriotism. Since you would then be making…"

Freek replied to Gallup's Mirror's discussion '15% off for praying in public?'
"I don't think the action, in itself, is illegal (although Haglund's intentions certainly would make it illegal). Requesting guests to perform some kind of action, or bring a certain item in exchange for a discount is not an uncommon thing…"

Freek commented on Nerdy Keith's blog post 'Northern Irish Bakery Refuses to Bake Pro Gay Cake'
"@Davis they didn't refuse service to the LGBT people, they refused to bake a cake according to a specific theme. But that, in itself, is not discrimination. @Nerdy I'm curious how the law works on companies backtracking on orders they…"

Freek commented on Nerdy Keith's blog post 'Northern Irish Bakery Refuses to Bake Pro Gay Cake'
"I'm not sure if this falls under discrimination law. That would only be the case if the bakery refused to service a gay person at all. However, that is not what they seem to refuse. Instead, they refuse to make certain creations (cakes) that…"

Freek replied to John Major's discussion 'Humanzee!!'
"Michael Crichton wrote an interesting book on it: "Next". I think a lot of the human perception of intelligence sits in a person's ability to speak comprehensively. I doubt that many people will see a humanzee as anything different…"

Freek replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Is rape an evolved mating adaptation?'
"Rape being a mating strategy seems fairly logical in an evolutionary sense; males who did it had a good chance to spread their genes more than males who didn't. However, evolution has never been shy to use the same item for multiple purposes.…"

About Me:
I'm a christian on the last possible brink of christianity and believing. And since I've recently went through the Thoraic scripture again, I don't think I really want to praise such a god either.
On a more positive note, I've recently graduated on Chemical Engineering and I'm enjoying a bit of free time until I have a job.
Update: status changed to atheist.
Age
25-30
Why are you here?
As mentioned in the 'About me': It's not even much of a contest anymore, but I would like to be able to talk with some people in the same predicament (most of my friends are fully believing christians).
The religion you left
