Many atheists say no. They use comparisons like: "If atheism is a religion, then not collecting stamps is a hobby" (or similar, see rationalwiki.org/wiki/Essay:If)

There is a problem with this kind of argument: Most atheists would agree that atheism is a world view. Well, but if you use the comparison from above, you could also say: "If atheism is a world view, then not collecting stamps is a hobby."

So according to this argument atheism can't be even called a world view. 🤔

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

Da gibt es am Ende der Nachrichten immer eine feste Rubrik für diesen dämlichen Fußball aber jetzt, wo alle Spiele abgesagt sind, wird die freiwerdende Zeit nicht etwa für wichtige Meldungen genutzt, sondern für den Bericht, welche Spiele abgesagt sind. Was kommt als Nächstes? Ergebnisse historischer Spiele?

Ich möchte auf diesem Wege jemanden in meinem Alter (ca. 15 bis 25) finden, der ebenfalls (wie ich auch) an der relativ seltenen Nervenkrankheit GBS erkrankt ist, damit wir uns etwas austauschen können.

Wäre deshalb super lieb, wenn ihr diesen Tweet verbreiten könntet! :)

it would be great if shells would discard input while a blocking command is running so I can type FUCK YOU, FINISH ALREADY WHY ARE YOU TAKING SO MUCH TIMEEEEEE HNNNNNNG in my term without getting a bunch of bash errors afterwards :thaenkin:

I think the key problem here is a vague definition of the word "Religion"
