  • Greenpeace Finding New Ways to Harass Apple


    As MMi has routinely covered in recent months, the folks at Greenpeace have been vocal to say the least about their disapproval of Apple's environmental record.

    Greenpeace’s anger dates back to Apple's attempt to present itself as a clean-energy proponent and practitioner. But the international environmental organization says that Apple’s huge Maiden, North Carolina data center is anything but "green."

    This week, Greenpeace has begun projecting messages (think gigantic laser pen but with Twitter comments) on the outer shell of Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California. Other members of Greenpeace have begun protesting directly outside of the N.C. data center location.

    Greenpeace also projected messages onto the glass entryway into one building asking Apple to "just stop using coal" and "be part of the next century, not last."
    And there's no indication that the protests will subside any time soon.

    "Apple’s executives have thus far ignored the hundreds of thousands of people asking them to use their influence for good by building a cloud powered by renewable energy," says Greenpeace USA Director Phil Radford. "As Apple’s customers, we love our iPhones and iPads, but we don’t want to use an iCloud fueled by the smog of dirty coal pollution."

      People like you are stupid. You honestly think an IDEA (because that's all that the whole God and creation theory is...an IDEA.) will save you? Of course we're destroying the earth. Do you think Earth was trashed before we came here? I don't think so! Save your God idea.


      You're probably one of those people who walk up to mothers mourning the death of their child and say "It's okay, it was the will of God. You should be happy that your child is dead and in a better place!"

      I think Global Warming is pure crap. Am I not allowed to have an opinion and people like you are stupid? For what believing in God? Here's an idea to think of. Where's your evidence that God doesn't exist and where's your proof? The Amazing Atheist? Your name is such a joke along with your picture and saying we are legion or whatever. You're probably not even a member of it, you're just some little kid who believes he is. If you're over 18 get a job and get out of your mom's basement and get a life. You're a joke and I've been wanting to tell you that for a while now. Have fun eating cheetos and drinking your soda.

      Sad and pathetic being. Where's YOUR proof that a God exists? What evidence do you have? What makes YOUR God the one and only true God? What about hundreds of other theorized Gods and Goddesses? It's funny on how with science, everything can be proven. With religion however, it's just a theory. Nothing more than brought up ideas, without proof.

      It's funny on how you sink as low as to making fun of my name and display image. Isn't that against God's teachings? Shouldn't you love all of us, including me? You're not being a very good follower of your faith!

      I'm probably more successful than you, and I don't even have a job yet. Why don't you ask your God to promote job growth, so I can find a job? Or does he not work that way?

      By the way, my image actually has no intentional tie to my quote. If you're actually a solid Christian/Catholic/Whatever, you will come to recognize it

      Where's your evidence we're destroying the earth? Where's your evidence God doesn't exist? How did we all get here? Oh, right, it was a big bang that randomly created the complex human body. It gave us minds don't it. Who created the seasons? Mother nature? Where's your proof that "she" exists?

      What makes our God the true God? The fact that when the Philistines stole the ark of the covenant and laid it before their "god", it fell right before the ark. How do we know that this really happened? Because the Bible is true. How do we know the Bible is true? Because the whole Bible has been written by many different people, thousands of years apart, and yet it still fits together. How many times did the Greek gods and goddesses save their people? Never. Only evidence of these "gods" is myths. And even in theses myths, theses gods ate portrayed as angry and impatient and only kill their people.

      Are you really asking for evidence on how we're destroying the earth? The ozone layer? The rapid depletion of natural resources? Pollution from oil spills, factories, cars, and nuclear meltdowns from power plants? How ignorant can you be? Why don't you just crawl back under your rock, and keep that book of yours in your hand and keep praying for that "miracle". Maybe if you try hard enough, fairies will appear and clean away our planet, and make us all immortal!
      How do you know for sure the Bible is fact? Were you there when it was written? Or was is just branded into your brain by society since your birth? Have you ever thought on how our civilization would be today if we all *still* went by the Bible? We would all still be praying our sicknesses away. As for those Greek deities wanting to kill all of their people, why don't you ask those poor Egyptians from Exodus what they think about their all-loving God? Or all the other thousands of people who died because God was "angry".

      Oh, just an FYI, the name "mother nature" shouldn't be taken as an actual being. Just like your God

      Egyptians were not God's people and therefore God destroyed them for abusing His people. Our society would be blessed so much if we followed God's words, the Bible. But sadly that is not the case. You go be your proud atheist, but I'll trust my God for my life.

      If God created Earth and humanity, wouldn't Egyptians be his people? I thought everyone was God's creation.

      Scientific opinion on climate change - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Great debate, keeping it clean and without (to much) bashing. Love it.

      Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and co-author Leonard Mlodinow state in their book, 'The Grand Design' , that it is reasonable to ask who or what created the universe, but if the answer is God, then the question has merely been deflected to that of who created God. In this view it is accepted that some entity exists that needs no creator, and that entity is called God. This is known as the first-cause argument for the existence of God. Both authors claim however, that it is possible to answer these questions purely within the realm of science, and without invoking any divine beings.

      Sorry bro but you're a joke. Does mommy and daddy know you've been using the Internet and bashing people's religion? You're the one who started all this crap. You're another one of those simple minded idiots who believes in everything a scientist talks about? Instead of saying there is no God and I'm going to cover my ears and keep in believing that science proves everything then go ahead. Might want to take the time to sit down and read the Bible for once and take the time to go to church and calling me a sad and pathetic person? That just tells me that you are under age. And you're more successful then me? How? Successful in getting the Cheetos stains out of your shirts and getting fat? If that's true then you are more successful then me. Congrats man.

      But still, God created them. Why would he kill off his own creation out of anger? I guess God isn't the all-perfect being everyone makes him out to be.

      I'm sorry to inform you, but I am indeed not a "bro" or a "man". I hate people who talk in "Jersey Scuz".
      Your childish bantering just proves that you've nothing to argue with, other than the "God exists because it says so in the Bible and I have faith so God truely exists" crap. You still haven't came up with an argument on why your God exists, and why no other possible deities exist, and you call me simple-minded. You believe in an all-powerful spirit that created everyone and everything, but yet there is no solid proof that it exists other than the prophecies in the Bible. That all-powerful being also teaches love, acceptance, and light. However, this all-powerful being has killed countless of innocent souls out of spite and anger, and is the primary reason to why there is a low tolerance for the ***, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. There isn't much light in all of that, is there? To justify those actions, "it was the will of God" is always said. It's always God's will. What about the people with picket signs that read "GOD HATES FAGS"? I thought God loved everyone! If he loves everyone, why does he send his children into a burning pit of fire if they show the slightest dissent? Where is the justification of all the hate crimes and deaths in religion? You won't answer any of these questions because you can't. Because you know that the whole "God is real" fad is nothing but a pacifier to the weak-willed and the weak-minded.

      I'm more successful than you in many ways. I can actually type clear, using almost proper grammar and spelling. I'm finishing high school in two weeks, and will continue to seek out my future career in network security. I am both A+ and Security+ certified, and will be working on my Network+ and Linux+ certifications in the near future. I live with my boyfriend and currently looking for a job to support our apartment that we will move into in a few months. I'm only eighteen too!

      I'm also successful because, unlike you, I've an open mind. I've read the Bible multiple times. That's how I always outsmart you

      God has a reason for everything. I know you won't ever believe that but it is tee. Now, we humans will never know or understand God's will, because we're caught up in our worldly thoughts and activities and cannot grasp God's reasoning. I do know bad things happen because of sin. Adam and Eve sinned, making everyone a sinner from then on. That's why there is death and sickness. Adam and Eve had a choice, and they chose to disobey God. I also know that, as it says in Romans 8, "We know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those go are called according to his purpose. " I wish I understood God's reasoning. But I can't. But I trust that the Bible is true. I have faith in God. Faith is believing in what you cannot see. I have a hope that one day, Jesus will return to save us Christians and rid the world of all evil forever. I wish all people would become Christians, But many people's hearts are hardened and deceived by Satan. I pray for my unsaved family and friends that God will draw them to Him.

      You can't understand God's reasoning because he does not exist. Just like you can't answer any of my questions without hesitant. Have you ever heard the saying "If something doesn't make sense, then it's not true"? You can keep believing your fairy tail, whatever helps you sleep at night. I'm just saying you're ignorant for believing it.

      You can call me whatever you want, but I will believe in God, and you can believe in yourself. I'm done arguing since you will not accept the truth. I'll pray for you. Is that ok?

      You are the one who cannot accept the truth. You only know what you've been taught. You're done arguing with me because you can't argue. You've no valid argument.
