University Of British Columbia Q's

tuition isnt that much higher for majority of courses. its now on par or still cheaper than the rest of canada.

for bc students, entrance is calculated on 4 gr.12 courses relevant to your studies including english. so if you're doing sciences in ubc, a french 12 doesnt count. usually, math, english, 2 sciences

New Years Day + Cypress Mountain

i've been there the last two new years days, its not too bad. if you go bright and early, i remember it being just like any normal day. gets slightly busier during the mid-day, lineups at lift are about 5 minutes maybe, no more than 10 minutes for sure. the drive to baker is definitely worth it though i think, but it'll be like 4 hours round trip…

parents + religion

we are going in circles here. you are getting frustrated because we are talking about different points and what each of us is saying is being taken out of context.

science is good at disproving so you say. so i am waiting until science can 100% disprove that a god does not exist. IF the time comes, then i'll jump ship. but until then, you live your life i'll live mine.

my answers to those questions you ask gimped are based on ideas that you do not accept, and as such, it would be pointless for me to even attempt them since you will just shake your head and get frustrated even more

Everything in this universe is lumped into science. It is one of those regions that we can not as easily prove as we can disprove (God is very easily disproved with rational, insightful, realistic, physical, mental, and emotional evidence). All of religion does not question itself whatsoever with any amount of credibility. If their arguement includes "I belief it so it must be true" is all they can come up with, then there isn't a debate on the issue.

I am by no means a scientist, but if you have no understanding of scientific theory and how it works then I suggest you stop trying to rationalize god and religion on a public forum like this.

yes science is all about dissecting. with regards to what we spoke about earlier about man's egotistical nature. why is it that we believe we can scientifically figure out how everything works? what is our drive to accomplish this? my understanding about the scientific theory is clear enough, and that is what leads me to believe in religion. many things scientific are theorized, and many theories are just that; based on assumptions that were based on other assumptions. the odds of all the necessary steps involved in evolution from the early prokaryote to the modern multi-cell complexes is so staggering, so unbelievable, that i dont understand how accepting those odds would be easier than accepting a god.

theories are ideas that may or may not be the way. schools teach it as if there is no way around it. if this were the case, why is it still a theory then? why is the theory of evolution a theory of evolution and not the principle of evolution?

im not helping you prove your point in anyway, if that's what you think, you have taken what i said out of context. everything is not black and white, you have to read the Bible for yourself, and take what's important out of it. much like Shakespearean literature, if you just read the words, it doesnt make sense. you are taking it word for word, and its not making sense to you. if creation didnt happen, you wouldnt be here, nor would i, and we wouldnt be having this conversation. you cant make something out of nothing (as explained by the theory of conservation of energy and mass).

i guess in the end, i take a different approach as you. until science disproves without a doubt that there is no god of any kind, i'll still believe in my God. for you gimped, you will not believe until science proves that a god exists.

this discussion is getting really in depth and further involved than i have the energy to get into right now, but just one thing to rebutt before i sleep:

"Do you believe in creation - Adam and Eve as our parents? Do you believe that this happened 6000 years ago? It was written in this bible you speak of so highly, so it must be true like the rest of the stories you say are. If the earth is only 6000 years old, then who were the dinosaurs? What to do with radio-carbon dating and the age of rocks? YOUR THEORY SEEMS TO BE FLAWED. How about the apocalypse? When do we ride that wave?"

obviously the world isnt 6000 years old. only a fool would believe so. scientific evidence PROVES (not theorizes) contrary. but the point is that everything is all relative (speaking of age and time here in particular). ppl in the bible lived over 500 yrs, how feasible is that especially without the aid of modern medecine? everything is not in black and white, you take from the Bible what you will, i for one do not believe that everyword should be disected to the letter. there are important lessons to be learned, lessons which do not require such clearcut definitions.

should i see a doc?

pneumonia is infection of the lungs. your alveoli become blocked with mucus and pus which causes breathing difficulties, thus the coughing up of green slime. the red strings is probably blood from lungs or throat from excess caughing

It's not exactly hard, but if you fuck up once, you're screwed. There will be tons and tons of em just waiting to get mounted. So it takes time. Not to mention wax jobs, tunes, and other things like ice skate sharpenings in between. It can get pretty busy. He's easrning all that money he gets, and probably deeserves more.

hehe, i've messed up my share of ski mounts back in the day ;) the stuff we do really isnt hard, but its just tedious. ie. scraping wax off 10 sets of skis/boards. omg

you should tell my manager that we techies dont make enough money. guys on sales today were pulling in avg like 15-20/hr. i make the same as a burger flippin grommit at the local mcdix :(
