Why GOD has not updated the world ?
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:40:04 AM »
Well living in this world of IT industry, it has become my habit to check if new update of so and so has come up or not. Win10 updates itself and do not even tell me what has become new !!

But the world ! It still has 24 hours in a day. Hey come one we need more time for facebook, twitter, coding etc. and then we have to live also. I think GOD should update the world and add more features to it. What you say ?

Perhaps we live in a cheap android made by LG?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

if the code is too buggy, don't mess with it, it will only get worse.

Both of these, and one more.

Feature Bloat.  Have a vision, and stick with it.  Any problems?  Restate them as a Feature.

I guess he didn't take the hint from the Beatles song 8 Days a Week:)
I wasn't aware they predicted Facebook though.  :)

Because there's no need to do regular (or even any) updates now that The World has gone over to a subscription model.  ;)

Maybe it was a Giveaway Of The Day.  No free updates.  Must be installed and activated on the 7th day or it will expire after some random interval.

Shareware period has lapsed?


Or worse, trial period lapsed and God is busy with de-installing...

Or it is abandonware.  He has bigger fish to fry(maybe a planet that's all ocean with no life forms other than fish.  They could live off the sunlight instead of eating each other.)

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

On the flipside: Don't try to fix something so badly broken.

Since it's the age of consumerism: Throw it in the trash, go down to the local Galactic Walmart, buy something cheaper that has more features but shorter planned obsolescence.

the platform seems to be pretty good, it's the feature set he/she's struggling with.  He/She is adding and removing people features all the time

granted they seem to be pretty much all alpha versions, and written in basic, but still...

Just curious.  Why?  It's obviously tongue-in-cheek.

As Curt said, "move thread to basement (board)"

I believe the world as God made it has stayed the same since major events like Creation and the Flood.  Mankind has made most of the changes "trying to improve the world."  Looks like they have made a mess of things. No free updates from God are necessary.
God is not dead,  He is alive!

This thread is obviously tongue in cheek.  Can we not have a bit of fun in an open area?  We aren't really talking about anything serious... it's just silly humor.  And I say this as a believer.  If we can't interact on this level, it sort of explains the negative view that many have...  :(

Well, I thought so but wasn't sure about the tongue in cheek.  Still I felt the need to respond.


Thank you so much for not flaming me.  That's one of the things I like about this forum.  Most of the time, things are pretty calm.  But one thing is for sure, the help I have received over the years has been great!

thanks for not flaming us :Thmbsup: and glad to hear that you can take it in the spirit it was intended  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

safe to say that this is one of those subjects that is potentially sensitive no matter where it turns up >:(

We're LOOOOOONG overdue for an update.

First, what I'd like is a nice sandbox to run scenarios through with zero real consequences. That would rock~! ;D
