    I'm not really following this...but it seems you are suggesting that the scientific theory of evolution somehow negates God (though it is supported by all of the evidence and the theory gets stronger year after year with more evidence). If that is what you are suggesting perhaps it is reality which has a strong aversion to the concept of a divine creator.

    Am I missing something? Is there late-breaking information that replaces evolution as an explanation as to how we all got here?

    If you want more of that see Dilbert in today's papers or his website. Funny thing is, it's not clear whether he is parodying Apple, Samsung, or the whole thing in general. Hope it's the latter.

    So? Looks pretty accurate to me - except that the made the other countries too large.



    Anyway, what does that have to do with this thread? Samsung got caught red-handed (again) copying stuff from Apple. American's views of the world don't change that.

    There exist at least 3 posters on AI who either cannot read well, cannot apply simple rules of logic, don't care about accuracy, love to mis-attribute statements to others, don't care about truth, or some combination of these factors.

    Well, that is certainly true.



    It has no bearing on anything that was said previously, and therefore constitutes changing the subject, but at least it is a true statement.



    As such, it constitutes a breakthrough in posting style.

    A much bigger one than you even imagine. The post said that ALL Korean people don't deserve Apple products.



    The Korean Doctors do not deserve Apple products. The Korean Buddhist Monks do not deserve Apple products.



    The Korean schoolchildren struggling to learn and improve their lives, perhaps, ESPECIALLY do not DESERVE Apple products.



    "Apple should pull out of Korea completely!"

    These things happen. It's not a story.



    It is still Samsung's fault because if you hire a reputable agency their graphics people put a big red FPO on the image so things like that don't happen.

    That map is hilarious and yes, it represents what a lot of the idiots here in the US believe about the world.

    Israel is a pretty horrible place. It has a racist, quasi-fascist government. It violates international law with great regularity. It violates almost every treaty it signs. It was the only "western" country to strongly support apartheid in South Africa and now supports a very similar system within it's own borders.



    Being "anti-Israel" (not anti-Semitic), is a very common point of view outside of the USA.



    I've long held that our (often misplaced) support of Israel is the root of most of our problems in the middle east. Of course, w/o the US backing Israel, they'd be bombed back to the stone age. I have no problems w/Jewish people, I have plenty of Jewish friends, but I agree completely w/the above post. Their leaders actions are not something I support

It's all self serving, as they are publicly funded, their citizens are forced to pay for the vile programming even if (like me) they despise it and ban it from their homes. They fear a more capitalist UK would reduce funding, so they try and keep the country as brain dead as they possibly can



    So they take aim at the prime example of capitalism, the US. Creating nonsense anti US memes whose spread is accelerated by jealousy (ironically because UK standard of living is lower due to increased socialism!).



    That's obviously a different BBC than the one that I use as my primary news website and radio news programming source. Seems very balanced to me, and I live in the US. One of the few news entities that still understands the difference between news journalism and editorials.

    BBC have a hard on for bashing the US. You only need to listen to Radio 2 or Radio 4 to hear it on phone in's and discussions. You only have to watch it on the BBC News to see it. And as for the bias of the BBC - they went to the High Court to prevent an internal report being published that showed how bias they were!



    And lets not get onto the socialism and continual news items about "Tory Cuts". Gees. Or the unfathomable bias towards the last Government (left wing) where they would sound bite a Labour minister and the contrary argument would be put by a left wing backbencher (rather than the official Opposition). Etc.

    And yes - the map is very funny. How can you be offended by such a well-constructed satirical comment?

    It would be funny - if it weren't so true.
