    No its not completely appropriate. Your nation was also founded on slavery. 3 / 5 of a man. So should the US go back to that too? Nations evolve, just like everything else. Also, I shouldn't have to deal with your religion when you serve me in a public institution. (With perhaps the exception of a "<religion name>'s party", since its the founding principle of such a party.) In private you can do whatever you want, but if you want to work for the government that is a requirement and something you agree with when signing your contract. Same with political party symbols. You can't wear a rainbow t-shirt either, if that is any consolation. Its should. There is piles of evidence that is a major cause of indoctrination of children, and it causes negligence towards the public schools. Homeschooling is also not good for your kid's social skills. (Private education can be necessary, and it can be done well, but the US isn't an example of such a system.) We have 2 major school system, about equal in size. Both equally funded by the government: State run schools and christian schools. Both are by law non profit businesses, with quality standards to maintain. I went to a christian school because it was simply the best option near me. The only difference is that christian schools are not required to accept you as a student if you have a bad record, and then I didn't get to choose what religion class to follow. It you can go to jail for not serving a black man, you should go to jail for not serving a gay man. You can't pick and choose with equability, otherwise its meaningless. That does certainly not mean you should treat minorities better then the general population, just equally.

    Let me remind you that we (Belgium at least, but as far as I can find most of the EU) have absolute separation of state and church. You are not allowed to show any religious affiliation whatsoever when holding public office. (including secretaries, librarians, ....) The US has as official motto 'In God we trust'. You take oaths on bibles. Your pledge of allegiance has 'One nation under God' in it. Even if the EU takes in ALL Syrian refugees, our total percentage of Muslims would go from 4% to a whopping 5%. I agree that the assimilation process is THE problem right now, especially since most refugees/immigrants end up in communities of other refugees/immigrants where they are less likely to integrate into the society and culture. I'm somewhere in the -4 and -4 area didn't write it down. Political extremism is destroying America. But most of that does seem to come from the right wing. This whole thread just reminded my of this

    The 2008 collapse was a direct result of the US housing bubble, with it beingexacerbated by bad policy in the EU. No, Nazism wasn't the US's fault, it was the Treaty of Versailles, signed by GB, US, France, Italy and Japan. A problem again exacerbated by bad policy decisions in GB and France. Also, (in the 1930's) I wonder what you would do if your county went into hyperinflation* and you had to use wheelbarrows to carry your week worth of salary home. And then someone appeared with all of the answers. (Oh and if you spoke out against them you'd disappear.) I don't think there would be much resistance, not while it was still possible anyways. * Hyperinflation on the scale of1,000,000,000,000 to 1 in 9 years! Prices doubled every two days in 1923.

    Well, I'm agnostic so I don't have any rights? Once you pull religion into an argument about something like this you've lost. Ultimately society gives us rights, and takes them away. (Prohibition?) They have less authority then I'd like due to veto rights, which in my opinion should be abolished (a more democratic system should be setup then the security council, but that is only a small part of the UN) I hope you know this, but the USA doesn't have nobility, I assume you mean dictator . (Which, in my opinion, would in an ideal world be the best form of government for a number of reasons, but we don't live in utopia) I know how the system works, otherwise I wouldn't be posting this, though I'm not a law expert. There is this great series of videos you should watch, if you think congress or the Supreme Court doesn't have the authority to define what a legal marriage is. Polygamy existed long before the now traditional "1 man + 1 woman", this doesn't make it legal. Switzerland isn't part of the EU. Its part of Shenzhen, but that isn't the same thing. I guess you don't quite know what the EU is or how it works, and that's fine, but know what you're arguing about before you get into it. The EU is a big government that makes legally binding laws, has a court, takes representation, has a national bank, has elections,... Its not one country by name, but it could be on some fronts. On others we are hopefully different, but not on really on any points relevant to this discussion. The US staved the world from the vile that was The Third Rich, which it helped create inTreaty of Versailles. So, thank you? And then in 2008 the US helped collapse the global economy into a hole that the EU is still climbing out of. (I'm not saying its all the US's fault, I'm not a financial expert) In my opinion, the US is declining because of education. Seriously, its an investment in the future of your nation and instead of making it affordable you let people take on a HUGE dept? Over here, the government spends about €12k per student per year, for 5 years on average. This is an investment with a huge return rate, considering the average masters makes that back in taxes in the fist 5 to 10 years of working. All of the 30 to 45 years after that the state is making a profit. My parents payed less then €1k tuition fee, with some royal estimation of extra costs I get to a yearly cost of €2.5k I don't know of any state with unlimited welfare, though some states need a reality check on there budgets.
  5. OK, same issue, I'm going to revert to an earlier build to fix this issue for now, but the water unification isn't going to be as functional unfortunately.
  6. Oh lol, missed that. I need to figure something out for a better fix. It may take a while. Use a previous build in the meantime.
  7. Is it an existing world? Try a new one if it is. I'm annoyed at FML for making it impossible for me to specify TFC (and TFC-tweaks) to load before all other mods.
  8. Can you retest with the latest build? I tested it with just Railcraft, but don't know if it will work in a pack.

    Human rights should be inalienable, and they should only be added too. But owning a gun isn't a human right, its a right given to you by your constitution, which is a law.These are The Human Rights.(Which mentions health but not guns.) Also, if you respect that the 'active malitia' doesn't need to be the case because of the Supreme Court, you cannot say that they don't have the authority do define the legal definition of a marriage.That would be the equivalent of only reading all uneven pages of a book. I'm taking about the legal contract here, not the religious definition, which should be (and is still) up to the church to decide on. I admit that a gun can would probably be an effective deterrent against a burglar for example. But you are making assumptions on how much that happens, without any figures to support your statements. But does that benefit outweigh the problems associated with guns? It does not in my book. If I hadn't put any thought into this, I wouldn't post here. I have had these discussions before and I don't generally respond with my thoughts on the matter if I can't back up my numbers with data. Although I do think all statistics can be (intentionally) misinterpreted. "Never trust a statistic you didn't forge yourself" "The only way to achieve a situation where criminals don't have guns, is to make sure the populace in general don't have them. Because criminals come from the populace in general. So your choices are, respect the second amendment, or trample over it and take all guns from everyone. Everything in between is just pandering and hand-waving. " So, no guns it is then. I'll be honest, I don't think this is feasible but if you don't try you have lost the battle before it starts. "did you actually read the article? Or do you begin a such a read by looking up the author and if he has ever been on Fox news you instantly discredit him? If you read it, do you dispute any of his figures?" I started to read the article, thinking that I was on some sort of official website, but the second I read the first paragraph I thought it was BS. I didn't look up the author until somewhere halfway trough, and yes, the fact that he wrote a column for FOX made me more suspicious. I wouldn't have an issue with bias if this website wasn't presented as the ''Crime Prevention Research Center" or ''a research and education organization dedicated to conducting academic quality research". I dispute all of the figures that are non-USA, as the article only seems to mentions other in house articles as sources for those numbers, if it mentions sources at all that is. Also, it counts bombings too, which isn't a mass shooting. Its just another thing he does to make the statistics line up. Besides the "death vs injury", time table, his definition of mass being 15, .... Just taking 'EU vs USA' for this next bit, no China,RussiaorAfrica I'll agree that there may be more shootings in Europe then I first thought (I did some proper research) but it still doesn't add up to the USA numbers if you take the EU together a whole. If you don't take the EU as a whole, you should also separate the USA into states. (I didn't make a proper table but I'd bet that would end up being a list with a mixed top 10) Let me sum up my thoughts on the USA real quick: Once a great nation, and it saved us during the second world war. Now its just a great place to live if you are rich and have no legal or health issues. I'd love to go and visit (or work/live there) but I would not give up my Citizenship of the European Union.

    Ok, so historically the second amendment was a good idea. Maybe. But nowadays it won't protect you against the government, which means that its original purpose is void and it should be modernized. Laws should evolve with the times and "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." hasn't been valid for a long while. PS. about your Christianity figures in an earlier post "To say that Christianity is dying out now just proves how dillusional you are. Can you say that and truly believe it when over 85% of Americans at least claim to be Christian? Christianity is growing all over the globe." This statement is mostly false. In 1990 86% of Americans where christian, 76% in 2001 and 76% in 2008. Christianity is growing very slightly globally, but the growth-rate is lower then thegrowth-rate of the global population. Oh no, I know guns save lives in home defense. Against other people with guns. (and yes, that is conveniently left out of the cartoon. Also: the cartoon is also 10 years old, so the board on the right should be a lot bigger by now.) If the bad guys didn't have guns, the good guys woudn't need then either. I realize that this is impossible to achieve in the USA, but for example Australia did it successfully. Guns are cool, they make for entertaining TV, movies and game, can be collectors items, used for sport, but that's it in my book. The website you linked is biased. Its founder isJohn Richard Lott, Jr. Google him, read all of the first page results (that are not his twitter and own site) and tell me you still trust him.

    This whole thread is just hilarious. It just illustrates what it wrong with the USA, and why its not going to get fixed any time soon. We in Europe have issues too, but nowhere near what you are having. *cough* *cough*
  12. I changed back the last change I made, It worked fine in my dev setup but crashed in a jar. Good job FML
  13. [TFC 0.79.23+] TFC-Additions 1.0.4

    After much frustration with FML's code, I found the solution for this problem, and cause I thought why not, I made a PR.
  14. Wait for the next build (8+) I'm adding flowing water/lava to be replaced. That should cover just about everything.
  15. My thing does replace the vanilla Blocks.water/lava with the TFC equivalent, so in theory it should work. But I think you did the same thing and it didn't work?
  16. TFC and Addons - Time issues

    Let me throw in my 2 cents here. Stop relying on bukkit derivatives and support the people making pure forge tools. They will never become a true replacement unless people use them and help work out the kinks.
  17. Since I couldn't get kev12east's fork running, I morphed the original code into my tweaks mod. Its also capable of handling lava.
  18. [TFC 0.79.23+] TerraFirmaCraft NEI plugin

    Updated to .23 If you need old builds, use the link to jenkins ( and use the list on the left to get a build number appropriate for your version of TFC. For .22 use build #23
  19. I will look into it, but I have no clue if its doable without extreme overengeneering (which i'd like to avoid) It turned out to be easy. it should be included in builds 4 and up.
  20. Not a problem at all, just thow it in there. It can als be removed without issue as it doesn't add any items/blocks.
  21. [TFC 0.79.23+] TerraFirmaCraft NEI plugin

    I hope you will be happy to know, as of v 1.5.3 this is finally implemented.
  22. [TFC 0.79.23+] TerraFirmaCraft NEI plugin

    You actually have to install NEI itself too!
  23. [TFC 0.79.23+] TerraFirmaCraft NEI plugin

    As of version 1.5.2, you NEED tfc 79.22 (or higher)
  24. [TFC 0.79.23+] TerraFirmaCraft NEI plugin

    Another small update: You can now enable and disable modules in the config, if you'd like too:
