The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Thing is, most of the games I've seen with the Ducks just like today, they're outplayed by the opposition. It's just that the other team can't get any goals by Gigeure and it goes into overtime, then the other team gets tired and the Ducks get a break and score.

    Whatever they do, they do very well. They have controlled every series they have played, haven't been down once.

    Alright, I am through the anger, the hatred of anything Wild (hex on those bastards!), and the disappointment. It was a great year, we will come back stronger next year.

    All is not lost! Can't say that I am a Sens fan. But I am officially hopping on the bandwagon in support. For ten long years, Lord Stanley has been held hostage in such places as Texas where rumours of a new Dallas Cowboys water boy is bigger news than hockey. Enough! The Cup comes back to Canada this year!

    LETS GO SENS!!
