To be correct at doing something like this, you require the permission of the original author, and you should credit them.

Besides that, the material is offensive to some people, it would have been wiser not to post it in the first place. - May 07 2004

Lincense: GPL?
Do you own the copyright, do you share 'the source'?

As I have stated before, KDE-look is a great general public site. This kind of material is considered offensive by a number of people, including our under-aged and female visitors, which is a shame since they have as much a right to be here as you do.

There are tons of places on the net where you can go with this styff (hell, they won't even mind that it's not original work), this is not one of these places - May 07 2004
Sorry

Wallpaper Other by freebar 23 comments

Look guys, the religious wallpapers a while back where not removed, although they did offend some people (including myself).

Note: The wallpaper does not propagate a political OPINION, it is an apology of a journalist that clearly feels he has been had in the Iraq war.

He does not call out against any political party in particular, he is just pointing out that there where no weapons in Iraq, which is an accepted fact by now, and that he has ben lured into thinking that there were.

Again, nothing in his wording takes a political turn, he is stating facts backed by very hard evidence.

That all aside, there are no formal rules about kde-look being a-polical that I know off. Correct me If I'm wrong. - Apr 01 2004

I really like this, it is different enough from OS X, yet still has its appeal...

I would shrink the titlebar slightly (screen realestate is important), and mabe add ome color (not to mutch), but otherwise it will be to gray.
The colors could be configurable in the final version - Jan 09 2004

Er, I don't even know the ten commandments...
My sense of right and wrong is determined by the idea that we are all equal, since we're all twists of randomness, one is no better than the other.
My morality is differs greatly on some points with that of christians, I heard about something like 'turning the other cheek', well I never do that. When someone hurts me or my family, I'm on him/her like a ton of bricks.
I also do not believe in blind obedience, to no-one. - Oct 29 2003

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 26 comments

I was raised only partly catholic (my father is a deist, my mother is catholic).
It shaped me in the manner that my country was and is dominated by catholics, and as an atheist, I have always stood my ground alone.
I never really believed in god or the bible, it always led me to more questions than it provided answers, and the answers it did provide where inconisistent (like the recursive creation myth).
My morals are defined by the fact that I try to treat others the way I wish to be treated by them. It is not because we are just an effect of randomness that I want or need to mess up someones live.
All the more because I believe it is the only one we have! - Oct 28 2003

What you say is very strange, I have been an atheist for 12 years now, and I have never stolen a thing in my life.
I work hard for the little money I have, I love my wife and I am faithful to her.
I treat all human beings alike, regardless of race, skin-color or financial status. I fight against those who think that cruelty to animals is OK and against those who claim that some people are inferior to others because they were born in another country. The irony of that is that many of those that I oppose are religious (mostly christian, some muslim or jewish).

If what you say made any sense, I'd be a lying, stealing murderer who lived in a castle. BTW, so would Richard Stallman (the GNU founder) be. - Oct 26 2003

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 26 comments

I merely quoted Einstein because he did not belief in the same god as you do, he did not believe in Jesus or an afterlife (heaven) or the bible.
You can read his own article here:
http://www.sacred-texts.com/aor/einstein/einsci.htm.
Einstein believed that seeing god as a person, and percieving him to even have a son is very misguided, and that is just what the bible does.

That said, I do not agree with him on any of this, I am an atheist, I do not believe in any god, be it a cosmic or anthropological. I was pointing out that you are quoting someone who opposed your own religion. - Oct 26 2003

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 26 comments

It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere.... Science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Oct 25 2003

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 130 comments

No, I don't feel there is anything else.
I had many rights taken away be religions, but that is because I concluded that there is no god, it was a result of this, not a reason.

They cannot handle someone who doesn't believe, there is little or no place for atheists in my society, yet I am one.
I do not believe in god, christ, heaven or hell. I find science the better way.

The point is, you're never going to convince me to believe, as I will not succeed in getting you to wave your religion, which I don't intend.

I just stand by my original standpoint, that religion is a private thing, between you and your deity. I do not think it belongs out on public forums where people of all beliefs come. - Oct 17 2003

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 130 comments

Again, there is not evidence of any god, but regardless of that the argument of everything out of nothing stays the same.
Where did god come from?
It is logically inconsistent to assume god to be eternal, yet dismiss even the possibility of the universe being so.
BTW, I never claimed the Darwins *theory* to be absolutely proven. It is still a theory, with evidence to support it, but we do not have sufficient evidence to actually make the theory a water-tight fact.
It does however make a lot more sence than this invisble guy snipping his invisible fingers and everything appearing as-is. - Oct 16 2003

There is no evidence to support the theory of a god but the fact that some people just think he is there.

OK, you propose that god is eternal, but it would go no further to state that the universe is eternal.
I'm not claiming that the universe is eternal or infinite, I do not have sufficient data to support that assertion.
But when making any kind of argument, you need to maintain internal consistency of your own statement, and frankly, yours loops. - Oct 16 2003

Censorship is indeed a dangerous thing... but there is a place for everything.
This kind of content should not be banned from the web, as nudity should not be banned from it.
This not mean that it should be allowed everywhere, I think nudity and religion should not be on general sites like kde-look, those who want it can go to specific sites.
I think that all people should be able to come here, inlcuding children. I would not want my children (if I had them yet) to watch pornography, and I would not want them exposed to religous material when their minds are still vulnerable to manipulation. - Oct 16 2003

like in the religious argument, you may not use the absence of any evidence that it is there as proof that it doesn't exist, please provide me *evidence* of its non-existance.
You *can't*, that is impossible to do, the fact that it does not exist presents itself through the absence of evidence of existance! - Oct 16 2003

And does this justifies monopolizing about 80% of the schools (in my country), forcing people in court to swear on the bible (up to about 1998 in my country) regardless of their own beliefs.
I had a christian upbringing, I was forced to go to catholic schools and I will never tolerate the same for my children, I will not allow anyone to push that upon them.

If you want to believe, that is your right, but keep it as far away from me as possible, I got nothing but hurt and lies from it. - Oct 16 2003

He does have a point, think 9/11, think crusades, think inquisition...
Religious people seem to have this weird preoccupation with killing all those who have a different religion, or worse for them, no religion at all.
This still goes on today, president Bush once stated that he did not consider atheists to be citizens, he did not think they had any rights.

Please do not try that argument on anyone, the church tried that on me when I was 12.
If the Universe can't either have appeared out of thin air (or something else as yet unknown) or have existed forever, then where would this god thing have come from?

If an infinite complex universe supposes an intelligent creator, wouldn't that infinite complex creater have to be created itself?

The argument just plain and simply loops, it is logically inconsistent. - Oct 16 2003

Various Stuff by ben 6 comments

Hello

Although I did consider your suggestion for a while, and it obviously solves part of the problem, it still leaves some problems open.

If this were www.nakedladies.org we would be in error argueing if that kind of pictures belonged here. But this is KDE-look.org, and it should be politically correct toward everyone. Now women and possibly children visiting this site can be offended by these pictures, so they do not belong here. A picture ridiculing Bill Gates does, as you should not expect to find MS propaganda here.

People should not want to put this site on blocking software.

If you really insist on associating KDE and naked girls, why not open a site specifically for that purpose?
That way, everyone is happy too. - Dec 16 2002
