Revolutions are rarely justified. I'd even go so far as to say that the American Revolution didn't have sufficient impetus.

Revolutions are rarely bloodless (over 100,000 died in the Revolutionary War) and there's no guarantee that the new government is any better than the previous government - we suffered through the Articles of Confederation for a decade. A revolution is often a risky and bloody gamble. Things have to be really bad for the 'risk to reward ratio' to even out.

I'd argue that sheer technological improvement isn't the sole predictor of innovation. By changing the interface mechanism Nintendo has broadened the appeal of gaming, so much so that video game companies are realizing new markets thought to be previously unprofitable. The affect may have far reaching implications into the entire video game industry. Just because people are old - doesn't mean they're not gamers and it's backwards thinking to suppose that a gaming platform is any less so because more people enjoy it.

There needs to be an end to the elitism that the PS3 panders to. And as games and the video game culture spread throughout diverse demographics we'll see true innovation in the genre of games available and not just the next first person shooter.

"I read somewhere their periods attract bears. Bears can smell the menstruation. "

"Well, that's just great. You hear that, Ed? Bears. Now you're putting the whole station in jeopardy. "

Actually, there's new evidence to suggest that Earth is 'due' for more asteroids. science blog.

And while religion may cause wars and close-mindedness, it's yet to exterminate all life as we know it. What's even worse about asteroids is that even if we see it coming (and we probably won't) we can't do anything practical about it.

Are we talking Batman/Ironman or Bruce Wayne/Tony Stark?

Bruce Wayne any day of the week, but Batman? Batman's a vengeful angry vigilante who operates outside of the law to get what he wants done.

If it's between Batman and Ironman, I have to go with Ironman - he's less crazy.

Perhaps you would enjoy Richard Dawkin's 'An Atheist Call to Arms' presentation at the TED conference in Monterey California.

Dawnkin's presentation is more of an appeal to his audience than an argument for atheism, but his talk is worth watching.

Admittedly, your code is far less pseudo then mine. But it's possible the reaction should differ based on which of the statements are true.

For example, if god was not perfect, but was all powerful then we'd be screwed.

Dependence of fossil fuels.

Irrespective of CO2 emissions and global warming, our dependence on fossil fuels and their increasing scarcity is likely to be the motivation for the next world war. The increasing demand for energy in China and India will likely bring to a head tensions between first and second world countries. Similarly, if an alternative fuel source is not readily available when fossil fuels are depleted then the world could suffer an economic collapse the likes of which has never been seen before.
