Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

PLEASE NOTE: All LQ Rules apply to the General forum. Flame wars, personal attacks, hostility, insults and behavior of that nature will not be tolerated. Differing opinions are one of the things that make this site great, but to benefit from differing opinions the discourse must happen respectfully and thoughtfully... without insult or personal attack. Members who are unable or unwilling to participate in General under those parameters will not be permitted to do so. If you see behavior of this nature please report it.
P.S.No i don't have memory problems. I know i posted supportive stuff but i also posted nonsupportive stuff even before so in discussions you can switch sides to look at problems from different point of view to gain even deeper clarity. Doesn't cancel anything.

Doesn't really matter if we can trust or not but one thing is for sure - science doesn't rule the world it just describes it so stop being blinded by it and do your own research either out of curiousity or w/e else is left there!
I'd trust that quote (to my same agnostic extent of trusting anything) in our day and age we damn sure can't trust every scientist\priest\*
That only goes to demonstrate a poor understanding of the scientific process, that you equate the two. A priests position is one based on authority. With his god as the root source of his authority. To question him is to question his god (and your own, if you accept his authority).
The common man, with little understanding of the scientific process, thinks that the pronouncements of science are also based on authority. We have to beleive this because Mr A Scientist says so and he's an expert.
No. No, no, no. Any experimental results produced by any individual scientist, must be peer reviewed, often by hostile competitors. It cannot be stressed anough that it must be repeatable by anyone who chooses to repeat it. Even then it takes time to be escalated from hypothesis, to theory, to fact. It must find concensus among the majority of scientists. Thats about as much authority as science ever claims- "we all think that this theory is probably true." Until someone proves otherwise.
Of course individual scientists can lie, invent results to suit themselves, and they do. But it never works for long. In the long term these frauds are discovered and science itself moves on.
The media are largely to blame for this continued misunderstanding, whenever a science story breaks they roll out Mr Clever Dick PhD and reinforce the idea that this is true because this very well qualified person says so. And its very wrong.
Teach yourself about how science works. Read Ben Goldacres book Bad Science, or visit his website, most of the books contents is on there anyway.
Religion\Tradition: the end of the worlds; plu$, plus.
Science\Education: the beginning; plus, plus.
Anything. "if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed out fear of it" —Thanks Matrix quotes++ "if we never *take* time, how can we have time?"
Indoctrinate all! What'sup "authority?" "don't think you can know you can!" Humans: tell and seek anything before death...
Science: seeks only facts (that my change over ?time?) or theory (like "the beginning") and will go on... (unless we succeed t☢☯ well as animals)
Teach love not hell!!!
Many! "The system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it."
How deep is the rabbits hole if your the rabbit? `I see`, says the bind-man...
The devils\hells\*(f#!k them) in "our" books\* teach kids\* how to be such animals and preachers they can be the worst...not quite like me lol, we’ll burn from ghetto hells if we don't Educate ALL! I should be more provocative here seems how it is hiding. (; In "God" we stupid..
The only charity we should support is education!
But, people want to feel better about themselves and or keep others from fishing?
Not to mention stupidity: "absurdity, apathy, asininity, battiness, brainlessness, doltishness, fatuity, fatuousness, feeble-mindedness, idiocy, ignorance, imbecility, imprudence, incapacity, ineptitude, injudiciousness, insensibility, lunacy, nitwittedness, nonsense, obtuseness, puerility, shallowness, silliness, simplicity, slowness, slowness, sluggishness, stolidity, stupefaction, stupidness, stupor, thick-headedness, weak-mindedness" and "weakness" to quote the dictionary plus opinions\onions, irony, greed, lust, fear, indolence, hate, laziness, religion\tradition, ***!?.
Next time I see a person with a sign asking for money I will have a sign to show back, "think harder"; or, give a folded how to fish\** pamphlet disguised as a dollar?
By the way scientific "law" is of today. . .
(Take it how you will; "laws" do change with "time" not
that we should listen to other than "educated though." )[\RIGHT]

I would be interested in your plans to bring education to children that can't go to (the already exisiting) school, just because they have to work the whole day for a basic supply with food. How will you accomplish that without any charity that is not aimed at education?
Don't get me wrong, education is indeed an important factor, but there are other things that must be handled first, like water supply for everyone, ... .
Couldn't disagree more. Any society that considers Educating its children something that should be funded by charity, i.e. by the emotional whimsey of optional donation, is fundamentaly broken. Supporting eduction as charity basically excuses those who should be appropriately funding education, i.e. the government,from doing their job properly.
P.S., tried to decode the relevance of the rest of your ramble but singularly failed.
About religion. I wouldn't be surprised if our government one day decides to ban religion practices. Because certain fanatics take their religion too extreme and kill innocent people in the name of it.
