"Creationists are either dumb delusional or misled. Explain dinosaurs. Yep you can't. Dragons? where the heck are the wings? How in the world is that T-rex gonna fly, even with wings? And how the heck is the world is the wold population gonna start from only two people? That's a lot of inbreeding, and how come we don't have 3 legs or 20 toes by now?

Have you ever been to India?"

Sure it might happen in some areas but the fact that is not common in all societies leads your argument invalid.

A dying theory? Yeah right. Deny it and preach your biblical crap all you want. just because you deny something or don't want something to be true doesn't mean that it's not and just because you beleive something because its the xsimplest and easiest way to understand something means nothing. Your inability to comprehend evolution does not make it fake.

This is an entertaining read. Astrologists aren't sufficently numerate to count the constellations above their vapid heads! Searching for 'meaning' in our hopeless, suffering existence we hope to find comfort in...stars. :) I suppose it's marginally more cerebral than unicorns and leprechauns. Marginally. The truth is too painful. You're born alone and you die alone. In between is largely suffering, some more than others of course. Think of the babies in the Nazi medical experiments.? Yeah, despite our moans we have it easy. Life is crummy then you die. Nothing. Emptiness but at least there will peace in that void. We are none of us remotely important. Sorry to rudely disrupt the falsehoods of the Entitlement Generation but we are like brief, flashing lights in the sky. None of us remotely matter beyond our brief trajectory of pain & disappointment. Astrologist are ego driven zealots, keen to ascribe meaning where none exists and as our host correctly posits: they can't even add up accurately!!!

In reference to - fossil bunnies. Have you ever seen a live rabbit swimming on the bottom of the ocean? The Cambrian represents the animals which were the first casualties of the global flood, thus no bunnies would be found in it. Notice that the majority of these species are bottom dwelling sea creatures which is exactly what you would expect to find in a global flood scenario.

In response to: d3dx9.dll is missing or not found or installed

Comment from: bubu [Visitor]

Some game launchers will start to abort launching the game claiming missing d3dx9.dll.
Often the game site redirects to the dxwebsetup that downloads ver 6.00.2600.0000
dling this and clicking it to install does NOT fix the missing .dll

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0A9B6820-BFBB-4799-9908-D418CDEAC197&displaylang=en

In windows 7 i already have D3DX9_43.dll (System32 folder) and D3DX9_43_x64 and _86 (in the Intel\Extreme Tuning Utility\Drivers\DirectX folder).

Now the games are specifically looking for d3dx9_dll.

Most games that require d3dx9_dll will more than likely never run on Windows 8. It is a major backwards compatibility issue. I am sure an Engineer with working knowledge of how direct X drivers render graphics and the calls video games to them could tell you a more detailed explanation.

The new d3dx11_dll drivers simply are not compatible with the old rendering methods of the d3dx9_dll drivers.

It's obviously not gravity that is the mechanism. Pluto has as much power on earthly lives as do the giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn. Astrology works the same 4th dimensional way as synchronicity does. (Er... what's that, more mumbo jumbo?, exclaims the brilliantly ignorant scientist)

Can the sciences/scientists of our day explain ALL (I mean ALL) of the phenomena in the universe with their theories and tools? Can they fully explain (without any margin of error) how gamma ray outbursts occur or how black holes form? Can they? They cant! They still have to research more to get there. Which means, there are still factual things in the universe that science cant fully explain! All you half baked wanna-be-scientists should first learn basic sciences and then learn the LIMITATIONS of those sciences before jumping to criticize something that has evolved outside the realm of so called science. Nothing on the planet (no theory nor species) could have survived over 5000 years, like the way astrology has, if it had absolutely no truth or validity or viability. Astrology works. That's what matters!

Hello my name is Dan. I have about a dozen or so vidios and even more still photo`s of light rods that were taken just recently from a family member. The rods come out nearly every day. Now if anyone out there is interested in trying to explain these things to me i am willing to send pictures. They are very clear and not like most you see on line. I am very interested in finding out what these may be and be able to explain this to my family member

In response to: Acid rain, the ozone layer, the ultimate proof global warming is wrong

Comment from: Noah [Visitor]
Noah

Okay, first of all, in the 70's, there was global cooling (Where ice from the north pole was going to go further south and freeze us all). In the late 90's there was global warming (The ozone layer was being eaten away by CFC's, greenhouse gasses [CO2, to name one] are trapping in heat and raising the temperature of the earth). Now there is global climate change, (pretty much both of those combined, except for the fact global warming part is in the summer/spring and the global cooling part is in the winter/fall. The federal government makes a couple hundred+ million from fundraisers that are given to the government. Scientific studies also show that the increase in CO2 is helping plant life. Invisible Woman, global warming/global climate change is all the media talks about. I haven't gone a day now without hearing the liberal media blabbing about "save the uninhabited (by humans) north pole!" I live in Michigan, and would LOVE a warmer climate. The democrats just want big government because they'll have a total communist dictatorship over the people.

"So why do you creationists call me a liar?"

Because you aren't real and never existed.

Your fossilized remains were left on Earth by SATAN to tempt the unwary and unbelieving into not believing that man was created out of mud and women were created out of mud-man's rib bones.

Satan, I tell you! SATAN!!!

In response to: Bing Desktop won't be automatically installed

Comment from: LarryF [Visitor]
LarryF

I agree with the naysayers. "Bing" anything shouldn't be in the Windows updates at all. The updates are supposed to deliver updates and add-ons that make the computer more secure and improve functionality. It's not supposed to be another forum for MS to push unneeded foistware on consumers. To that end, it doesn't matter that it's in the "optional" area. It shouldn't be on the list at all.

Plus, Bing Desktop has that aggravating habit of unhiding itself when you check for updates, which makes me feel mildly homicidal every time it happens. When I tell my computer to hide an unwanted update, I expect it to stay hidden.

It's much the same with Windows Live and Security Essentials. Those are much better offerings... but they aren't updates, and shouldn't be in the update lists. MS has been dragged to court before for foisting programs on people. You'd think they'd have gotten the message.

Bing Desktop got pushed to my system today without my permission. I'm not 100% sure what did it but it was pushed. I'm suspicious that Security Essentials is what pushed it - updates did not because I have them set to download only and not install because I ALWAYS review what is installed before I do it.

Very true, but I was thinking that maybe you could tell me why "Office Live" is now listed under "Important"?

Last time I checked it didn't add anything anyone really needed, and certainly nothing that should make it show up in the "Important" category if it isn't already installed.

Hi, I just want to add another thanks for sharing this info.

Comment from: Bart Grefte [Visitor]

I recently started running into this problem as well, already figured out the restart Windows Audio-service workaround before I ran into this page. Glad I'm not the only one.

It's weird though.

My Audigy 2 ZS Platinum had been catching dust for years (I still don't understand why I stopped using it). Then I put it in my not so old pc with Windows 7 x64 where it worked fine for the first couple of months. Then this problem started occurring.

One moment sound sounds fine, then all of a sudden it's distorted. Restart the Creative Audio service: works fine for about a minute, then it's distorted again.
Restart Windows Audio-service, which also restarts the Creative Audio service, all is well again. Till the next time...

Coincidence or not, I am also using sleep (suspend to RAM) mode and started using it months before the problem started occurring.

Is this related to the problem and is there a permanent fix?

It says a lot about Microsoft that the best backup utility they ever wrote was first released in 1997.

Too bad NTBackup can't do VSS in Windows 7, because if it did, tons of people would still be using it.

Windows 7 backup is a complete joke.

It's not even worthy of being a Visual Basic sample program.

I LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND I USED MY IPHONE STARMAP APP. AND COULD SEE VENUS LOWER LEFT OF MOON AND JUST ABOVE THE MOON THERE WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT THAT MY STARMAP HAD NO ANSWER FOR. I VIDEO TAPED IT FOR ABOUT 30-40 MIN. I PUT IT ONTO MY COMPUTER AND USING VLC PLAYER I ZOOMED IN AND PAUSED AND WENT FRAME BY FRAME AND COULD SEE MOONLIGHT SHOWN BEHIND IT. SO IT MUST HAVE BEEN CLOSER THAN THE MOON,OR THE MOONLIGHT WOULD HAVE GONE IN FRONT OF IT. FRAME BY FRAME IT LOOKED LIKE A METALIC BALL WITH BLACK CIRCLE AND OVAL SHAPES. WHICH MAY OR MAYNOT HAVE BEEN LIGHT DISTORTION.I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT WAS BUT IT LOOKED ABOUT 1/8 OF THE MOONS SIZE ,AND IF IT WAS JUPITER THEN MY STARMAP SHOULD HAVE SHOWN THAT, BUT IT DID NOT.
