How ignorant can these people be?

by admin on September 16, 2012

Query by Gavin R: How ignorant can these folks be?
A information tale on www.livescience.com shows that lose to 36% of pastors inform their parishioners with emotional or emotional difficulties that it is a spiritual problem and that they need to have to pray. It also noted that liberal churches never do this quite a lot.
This was the normal reaction of the historical and medieval Church (the doctors of the day were not extremely excellent anyways). But when it came to schizophrenia, Christianity was specific that this was a situation of demonic possession, and if the poor target claimed “I am Jesus,” he or she would be burned at the stake. People with main depressive illnesses, i.e. despair, ended up sinful. Islam at the exact same time period was significantly more rational in the remedy of psychotics.
Now we have science, and though there are nonetheless several discussions in the area of psychology, they all agree that schizophrenia wants to be handled with treatment. Telling them go go pray is ludicrous, unprofessional, backwards, silly and idiotic. Who agrees with me?

I guess it may well be somewhat of a placebo for the sufferer. By believing God will treat them, they will begin to truly feel much better. Placebo cures are extremely efficient, so if the man or woman firmly believes that they will be healed, then they probably will get healed.

Heres the link to the asus laptop im interested in, and here are the basic specs:

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.204-7131.aspx

Graphics Nvidia® Geforce® 9300 256MB VRAM
Processor AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Dual-Core
Processor Cache 1Mb
Processor Model Number TL60
Processor Speed 2GHz
Hard Drive Size 250GB
Memory Size 4GB

______
Nvidia® Geforce® 9300 256MB VRAM.. according to Notebookcheck, this graphics card is quite decent considering my needs, and is described: Compared to the old 8400M G, the 9300M GS has a higher core speed and is therefore faster. Modern DirectX 10 games will run only in low details and resolutions. Older DirectX 9 games, like HalfLife 2 or Far Cry run fluently in medium to high details.

So.. hopefully, i reckon this is just about the laptop i need, and at a decent price (: what do you think?

thanks for any answers!

Answer by PhuKi
As you’ve said, the GeForce 9300M should easily run those older games.

The research you’ve done is pretty accurate. It will struggle to play Modern games like Crysis – giving playable rates only on low quality, but will very easily run older games like the Source Engine, and Battlefield 1942. However, I do warn that if you buy a computer just to meet minimum specifications, you will likely only be able to play on low quality and low resolution. If you don’t care as much for graphic details but rather care about plain gameplay, the 9300M should be just fine.

DO NOTE THAT SPECIFICATIONS LISTED BY GAMES ARE GENERALLY FOR THE DESKTOP COUNTERPART OF THE HARDWARE. The GeForce 9300M is the laptop counterpart of the GeForce 9300 (Desktop card). All laptop GPU chips are slower than their desktop counterpart due to issues of size and heat management.

For example, the 8600M GT laptop card is closer to 7600 GT desktop card than the 8600 GT desktop card.

Question by : Is it wierd for a 14 year old to not like the ‘entertainment’ these days?
I like watching the History Channel some times. I dislike the trash on Nick and Disney Channel they all seem like the same show to me. “Omg Nick has a girlfriend, ah!” I don’t want to watch shows like that. I also dislike modern music and popular culture. In fact I don’t pay attention to celebrities at all. I don’t now many of thier names till the news reports there deaths.
I dislike EXTREMELY violent games. The worst game in violence I have played is Medieval II Total War.
I also like Pirates of The Carribean. Though in my school its a “uncool” movie and ‘good’ movies MUST have a sex scene.
I also like the British TV show horrible History. I like history and the humour can be enjoyable.
Is my choice in TV show and video games strange.
My favorite TV show would have to be the Twilight Zone. (My dad grew up in the 60′s and showed me the show when I was 5) If you ask the age of parents in my school it will ver go above the age of 30.
Is my choice in TV shows stange. People say my choice in entertainment is “lame”.
Sorry for the tpos I was typing fast and did not see them.
Some people in my class watch that. I don’t like reality shows either.
