Filesharing Now an Official Religion In Sweden

Filesharing Now an Official Religion In Sweden

Via: dvorak.org: Kopimism – The Swedish File Sharing Religion

For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament.

Hopefully, this is one step towards the day when we can live out our faith without fear of persecution, says Isak Gerson, spiritual leader of the Church of Kopimism.

LOL!!! Tout aussi ridicule que les autres religions 😉

Belief in God Boils Down to a Gut Feeling

Ce que j’aime particulierement, c’est la question posee:

Shenhav and his colleagues investigated that question in a series of studies. In the first, 882 American adults answered online surveys about their belief in God. Next, the participants took a three-question math test with questions such as, “A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?”

The intuitive answer to that question is 10 cents, since most people’s first impulse is to knock $1 off the total. But people who use “reflective” reasoning to question their first impulse are more likely to get the correct answer: 5 cents.

Donc, si je comprends bien, repondre 10 cents est “intuitif” et le monde “intuitif” tend a croire a des conneries? ROTFLMAO.

Austrian driver allowed ‘pastafarian’ headgear photo

Via: dvorak.org: His Religious Right To Wear A Pasta Strainer

An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as “religious headgear”.

A self-confessed atheist, Mr Alm says he belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a light-hearted, US-based faith whose members call themselves pastafarians.

Certains diront que c’est ridicule, et c’est en fait aussi ridicule que les autres signes religieux acceptes.

Facebook Linked To One In Five Divorces In US

“yes, in theory if you’re single, Facebook can help you meet that special someone. But for those in even the healthiest of marriages, improper use can quickly devolve into a marital disaster. A recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that Facebook is cited in one in five divorces in the United States. Also, more than 80 percent of divorce lawyers reported a rising number of people are using social media to engage in extramarital affairs.”
