    You wanted proof that there is no god?
    Ok.
    I man who doesn't believe to God writes the word "God" as "god", because he considers that word as all common words.

    That title tells me that you were arguing with someone and that guy wanted a proof which you finally found. How can this title be taken metaphorically? I meen... the meening is so obvious ( especially with your tone and that Past tense )

    For a metaphoricall meening you could use so many appropriate sentences and you choosed the best...What else can i say?

    For AProg:
    I'm sure the philosophical underpinnings of the topic's title implied that a charitable, omniscient god would strike down the evil Coca-Cola corporation for firing an employee for defending his labor rights. Since Yahweh, Jesus, Allah, Shiva, Zeus, or Odinn did not intervene, we can only assume that (A) the gods are bad beings or (B) the gods do not exist at all.

    For everyone else:
    Coca-Cola just gave the lamest excuse ever for firing an employee, and it could hardly be considered legitimate. The real reason, as mentioned in the article, is clear: Coca-Cola is union busting. The union should continue their struggle against Coca-Cola to get this man rehired. Coca-Cola deserves any bad press coming their way.

    As I agree that the title of this thread is quite unrelated to the topic at hand... that is beyond the scope of this thread.

    I think that i made my self clear enough with my first post. So, whatever you want believe, whatever you want assume. I don't even want to try explain you about the topic. Further comments can only do harm.

Further comments can only do harm. I want to rub little chinese men all over my body. Chinese men are awesome, because I saw it in a south park episode once. I like south park, mmm, but I really like chinese men, yes, this is good. I can't wait until I have to pee so I have an excuse to wash my hands yes oh yes this is awesome shampoo.

    I think your reading way too much into the title.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Coke is well known for its anti union activities. Mostly in third world countries. A sacking is nothing to some of the tactics they have been accused of.

    I am suprised that they are taking on the teamsters...........

    Coke was right.

    If an employee is wearing a Coke uniform and drinking a Pepsi where ppl can see him then it looks bad for Coke.

    And if they had union problems with him then that is just all the more reason to fire him.

    Coke should just realize that the only good drink they make is Vanilla Coke and get over it.

    I think dude should've just ripped the label off of his Pepsi bottle.
