1  Economy / Speculation / Do altcoin investments drop the BTC/USD price? on: April 13, 2014, 05:19:46 AM
I realize this is a big concern in the cryptocurrency world. A lot of people want to see all the altcoins wiped off the face of the earth because they think it hampers their bitcoin retirement account. But does it really? I've been pondering this lately. If, for example, there is a massive surge to buy dogecoin again (selling bitcoin, of course), does that really drop the BTC/USD price? I'm having trouble seeing how it would. In my mind, it should ONLY affect the BTC/DOGE price, and not the BTC/USD price. On the one hand, sell BTC for DOGE would mean there are more bitcoins available to buy, but those available bitcoins are all bought by people selling DOGE right? Therefore, the buy/sell orders at the BTC/USD exchanges are not affected by people buying DOGE, and thus the BTC price remains the same. Am I wrong in my thinking?

Nobody really knows, but you make them on your computer with those spinny fan heater thingies.

Martians. You must forsake your measly earthy existence if you want this coin (or just buy them on cryptsy)

Infinite number of coins
New algorithm: bullscryptshit256
Block target time: 100 Martian years

(Once I get 100 bitcoins, then I'll start looking for a programmer to write the code for me).

3  Other / Off-topic / 13 reasons why Jesus was NOT a substitionary atonement on: April 12, 2014, 03:21:52 AM
Here is why I left Christianity (intellectually):

1.   Human sacrifice is forbidden (Lev 18:21, Lev 20:2, Dt 12:31, Dt 18:10, Hos 13:2)
2.   No man can die in the place for another manís sin (Dt 24:15, Jer 31:30, Ez 3:18; 18:4, 18, 20, 31; 2 Ki 14:6)
3.   Ezekielís Temple (Ez 45)
4.   The religious sect who told us to believe in the blood-sacrifice of Messiah was the pagan Roman Catholic Church
5.   Thousands of years before Jesus, Gnostic Paganism taught about a salvation obtained through belief in the atoning sacrifice of a godman (significant literature evidence to support this, e.g. Timothy Freke's The Jesus Mysteries)
6.   The Hebrew Scriptures never mention the Messiahís death as being a sacrifice for "sin"
7.   Jesus never mentions that his death will be an atoning sacrifice for sin
8.   Christianity is the "broad path" (Matt 7:13-15)
9.   Replacement theology
10.   The necessity of a blood sacrifice implies punishment (or hell) (Christianity's primary scare tactic)
11.    Jesus died for us, not instead of us
12.    The New Covenant as outlined by Jeremiah 31 is not yet realized
13.    Forgiveness of sins is contingent primarily on repentance and not on sacrifice (Ps 32:5, Ez 18:21)
