"'Every bottle of two-buck chuck I've ever had tastes like just one thing: al-kee-hol!"

Female student #1: Do you like wine?
Female student #2: Sure do!
Female student #1: Do you know that some people claim they can taste different flavours in different wines? How fake is that?
Female student #2: I know. They must just make it up.

The people who say they can discern different flavours in wine are probably the same pack of compulsive falsifiers who claim to have received an education after graduating from UWO.

actaully, yes, you can taste subtle flavours in different wines . . .unless all you drink is five dollar zinfendel, which tastes like battery acid.

12:59... Go on a wine tasting tour. Get some culture. Then try to make a comment like that. Yes you can taste different flavours in wine.

These girls are correct in their assertion that all "wine" tastes the same. After all (trailer park) wine only comes in one flavour. It is called "rubbing alcohol".

There is only one good scene in Sideways, when Sandra Oh hits Thomas Haden Church with a motorcycle helmet.

I dunno, Paul Giamatti being chased down the street by a portly naked man was pretty entertaining as well.

Apparently Ivey now has to promote itself on humour blogs, in order to raise its own sagging self-esteem. I guess thats what you have to do when you are NOT the top rated business school in Canada.

Ivey sucks, people are too arrogant for absolutely no reason. That school is less well-known than you think... You know what also sucks? Christianity.

What a random attack on a totally unrelated topic. You know what also sucks? Gay men.

Christianity really isn't a bad religion. It's just the so-called "Christians" who think they're better than everyone else, or those who think they can get away with anything just because they can ask for forgiveness. Why don't people start realizing that generalizations just don't work for everybody?

I guess I should put a disclaimer that I'm gay (so that people don't attack me for my joke), and also a Christian...sort of.

I can just feel the insults coming to me and my mother.

Christianity really isn't a bad religion.

I'm supposed to believe that a man died, came back from the dead (when he clearly wasn't a zombie), and ascended to heaven, all for my sins? Sorry, but that's just plain silly. I'm an athiest mainly because I only believe in things that can be empirically tested. Sorry, little rule I have about about life. If you have faith, fine -good for you!

Btw, 8:32 there is nothing with being gay. That I can understand, but being christian, or liking hockey, that's just retarded. And I guarentee you I'll get more flak for thinking only morons like hockey than you will for being gay.

I mean really, hockey is like figure skating for the mentally challenged.

I presume you've empirically tested your notion about hockey and figure skating? (I mean, you must've.) Otherwise, would've you be making that statement based on faith alone?

Isn't there another possibility, that it was all meant to be allegory and metaphor, but over time was taken literally but a bunch of people who had no imaginations.

You should read some history. When the bible was starting to be translated out of Latin and into common languages, theologians realized there was a problem, that meant people would read scripture of themselves, and would inevitably interpret it. Well, here's a problem, what if these people misinterpreted scripture?? Well, that's their immortal soul at risk! So theologians, who had dedicated their lives to understanding scripture, wrote into these new translations side notes that helped their reader interpret the bible. If you read one of these versions you will find that the majority of the text is allegorical and metaphorical and is not meant to be taken literally. But a lot of time has passed since then and people have forgotten these things and now many take it literally.

^ umm... i think that was the original criticism: christianity necessitates a belief that a man died, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. it would not be a problem (to many people) if christians were called to believe this on the allegorical level, but the problem is christians are REQUIRED to believe this on the LITERAL level.

Christians are not required to believe anything on a literal level. Unless of course they're Catholics or Jehovah's Witnesses, or a member of almost any organized Christian religion. You can believe in the moral teachings of Jesus without believing in anything that doesn't make scientific sense. Unfortunately, most religious people feel the need to believe things just because someone else told them to believe it. That's what's wrong with religion - this whole concept of blind faith. If everyone who read religious texts thought about what they were reading, and interpretted it in a way that made sense, the world would be a better place. If God created man in his image, then we must at least have the capacity to think for ourselves.

When I said that Christianity isn't a bad religion, I wasn't thinking about the notion of the Resurrection. I was mainly focusing on what it preaches -- love, forgiveness, and all that stuff. (And yes, I realize that other religions teach all those.) It's too bad that many Christians seem to forget about that.

The Resurrection itself is the core of Christianity and certainly the biggest cause of skepticism amongst non-Christians. I sense that you are very firmly rooted in your opinions so that any arguments or explanation in this matter would be useless.

Like you said, that's the thing about faith...believing in something that you can't see or prove. To some, it's an absurd notion, and others, it's the foundation of their lives. Why does it matter? I don't think either side is stupid.

Here's an Einstein quote. Take it whatever way you want. "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."

It's like Ivey. By itself, the business school certainly has great merit. There are some assholes who take it way too seriously and try to force themselves on people. (That's why we make fun of Ivey.) But I have some friends in Ivey who are some of the nicest people I know.

Hmmm...bad analogy.

What is funny is how Ivey's corporate bitches don't have a hope in Hell of going anywhere else but...Hell. They are nothing more than profit whores who do little else but line the pockets of the wealthy. They try to compensate for this with there lame community projects. But just like the value of an HBA it is only a facade.

It will only be too funny when we drive past your POS Kia stalled at the side of the road, in a late model Bimmer.

^ Ownage.

I like how people who bash Ivey because they're "corporate henchmen" must somehow think that with their awesome degree in psychology or English Literature, they themselves will completely bypass the corporate world and never work for a big company.

Reality check, cockfags... 99% will also be working for large companies. The only difference between you and the Ivey grads is that they'll be higher up and making a much fatter paycheque than you.

Well, maybe the above is a little incorrect, since it assumes that all of you will even have jobs once you graduate. LOL!

Is there any point in debating religion on the internet? No one will change their beliefs, and it is rather pointless anyways.

That being said, I'd rather believe in a liar than a pedophile.
