Use WinAmp / Foobar for your audio files, and VLC for everything else.

I use iTunes.

Suppose if I used something else, I could actually listen to the FLACs I have...

... But then managing the music on my iPod would be a pain... Granted I rarely ever use my iPod these days... maybe I should put my music library in something else.

I'm open to suggestions.

Nice try but most of those "real" tribes are long since gone. Industrialization kind of ruined it. You're about 100 years too late.

there are a few left.

From an objective view, cultures have always come and gone depending on their ability to survive and adapt.

deal with it.

Most missionaries since the "discovery" the Americas only helped they societies they encountered, and integrated themselves into the cultures they came to convert.

Only real kristchans are West Boro Baptist Church. Everybody else is doomed for hell according to them. Ghandi is burning right now. Morgan Freeman is going to burn. My gaping asshole is burning as we speak, damn those habaneros. But no, I respect Christianity as a whole when you're not an asshole about it and condemning people to hell by just looking at them.

I respect people's right to believe whatever they want. I don't necessarily respect the beliefs. And I do not condemn basing morality and actions to do with other people's rights and welfare on baseless beliefs.

You're free the believe as you will, but don't impede on others' happiness through it. If you do that you can fuck right off in my book.

This is pretty much my mindset too. What I also don't like is when people impose their religions on other people. I'm all for freedom of speech and whatnot but when you start almost forcing your religion on other people, then it gets irritating.

My reason for saying this stems most strongly from the fact that schools here force you to go to mass. Every Friday all the school is forced to go to mass regardless of their beliefs, and if we skip mass we risk getting a suspension. Some 'special occasion' masses take up to 2 and a half hours... and it was even worse back in secondary, we had to go to mass everyday!

I might be making a big deal over nothing but it's honestly boring listening to all that for someone who thinks it's all crap that cannot be scientifically proven, and nerve-wrecking to know that I could be doing so much more useful and fulfilling stuff for me than sit through those rituals and prayers that I know by heart now.

Yeah, that stuff annoys the hell (pun intended) out of me too. Children will believe anything an adult will tell them is fact, and do what they're told (basically). It's just how they work and what makes them survive. Adults then just abuse the mindless acceptance to feed them the religious dogma, rather than teaching the children how to think. Thereby completely misguiding and disadvantaging them. I'm fairly certain a lot less people would be theists if they didn't hear about any of those concepts before they were, say¸ 20 years old.

We should be teaching people how to critically analyze claims, require evidence, and dismiss any claims that can't be backed up whatsoever. We should be relaying the scientific facts that have been discovered, along with evidence and explanations on how the facts follow through from that evidence. This as opposed to teaching writings as fact from a millennia-old book that has been translated and modified countless times over that time.

I am totally okay with the bible an the quran and what have you being read in schools, so long as it is in a historical/cultural context. It would work as part of history classes on culture, that is, not using these books as actual accounts of history, but as a part of old culture.

Also, this is a little bit relevant, a video on open-mindedness, which discusses being critical of things.

asdf I could ramble about this stuff for ages

Except mayan and aztec cultures are praised while christianity has apologized countless times for their mindset a thousand years ago.

In elementary school in Texas we spent more time learning about native americans and their culture than all the other world cultures combined.

There are plenty of metalheads on NG that like Death Metal, just check out the heavy metal section, tons of growly growls, screamitty screams and guitars tuned so low that it's nearly impossible to tell if they're chugging or just wailing their guitar against the PA.

Soz though... I'm more into the melodic kinds of metal.

Italy has a ridiculously low church attendance rate yet has confirmation rates extremely high (a catholic ritual about age 15 in italy)

Probably about 1 in 50 people at age 18 still attend mass. (at most)

Proof that teaching things at a young age does not come close to brainwashing.

Proof that teaching things at a young age does not come close to brainwashing.

The Maltese side of my family (not the English side) is strongly Christian, my grandparents especially, so I was taught exclusively Christianity when I was young. Like everyone else I also had to go to catechism classes, get baptised, confirmed, go to mass every Sunday, learn Christianity at school from a young age, and all that. At one point in secondary school our religion teacher flat-out said that he thinks atheists are idiots.

But then as I grew older I started disregarding all that I learnt, so clearly the "brainwashing" didn't work on me. Same story for a number of people I know too. I think that thankfully our generation, being exposed to the internet, allows for more open-mindedness (in fact here in Malta, the percentage of elderly people who believe in God is muuuuch larger than the percentage of teenagers who don't).

Still, I think this "brainwashing" does still happen. There's a reason why, taking the example of Malta again, most of it is Christian. As far as I know, when we're kids, we believe what our parents tell us and it gets imprinted into our minds a lot more easily than when we grow up, and I bet that if all the devout Christian teenagers and adults here had been brought up somewhere with different religions, most if not all of them would not be Christian.

...And it's almost needless to say, and it's because parents don't teach their kids to be open-minded about religion, they teach their kids their own religion. So all of a sudden, out of the hundreds of religions out there, your religion or lack thereof would rely very heavily on your upbringing, and not on your own self-conscious decisions.

Yeah I type too much.

I have a particular and odd taste for stuff like Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, although that's closer to "black metal". Stuff with really growly vocals yeah. Children of Bodom is sorta growly too, but more melodic.
