Titlu: am ramas fara cuvinte - de Dinu Lazar la: 26/12/2003 17:18:15
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Va multumesc foarte mult pentru cuvintele Dvs referitoare la sit; sigur ca din punct de vedere al designului se poate face mult mai bine, dar si pentru mine mai importanta e fotografia si nu (inca) designul... si ma bucur ca v-ati indragostit de fotografie.

Mi-ar place ca peste citiva ani sa ma intilnesc cu Dvs la o expozitie de fotografie a Dvs si sa-mi spuneti ca ceva s-a intimplat cind ati vazut niste fotografii cindva pe un sit si ca v-ati apucat de atunci de fotografie.

Aproximativ trei ani am fost profesor de fotografie la sectia de grafica publicitara a Academiei de arte, in anii nouazeci si ceva; au fost si momente frumoase, dar si multe momente mai asa si asa, dar pe ansamblu desi cred ca am incercat mai multe lucruri ( am adus primul computer in locul cu pricina) nu cred ca am reusit sa fac vreun student de la grafica sa se apuce serios de fotografie, adica full time, si cu succes, si trec asta la seria mea cam lunga de esecuri personale... daca excludem fostul laborant de acolo, care acum e oarecum fotograf de succes in Bucuresti si care si-a scris in CV ca a terminat Academia de Arte, in loc de ca "a terminat cu Academia de Arte"

Daca v-ati indragostit de fotografie, si daca vreti sa faceti fotografie, mi-ar place sa citi si sa nu uitati citeva fraze ale unor mari fotografi:

The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn't what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organised visual lying. Terence Donovan (b. 1936), British photographer. Guardian (London, 19 Nov. 1983)

The photograph isolates and perpetuates a moment of time: an important and revealing moment, or an unimportant and meaningless one, depending upon the photographer's understanding of his subject and mastery of his process.-Edward Weston

Let us first say what photography is not. A photograph is not a painting, a poem, a symphony, a dance. It is not just a pretty picture, not an exercise in contortionist techniques and sheer print quality. It is or should be a significant document, a pene- trating statement, which can be described in a very simple term - selectivity. -Berenice Abbott

Photographs are perhaps the most mysterious of all the objects that make up, and thicken, the environment we recognize as modern. Photographs really are experience captured, and the camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood.-Susan Sontag

You learn to see by practice. It's just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can't be photographed. You just have to keep doing it.-Eliot Porter

Fotografu` francez - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/04/2005 12:13:35
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Sa comparam cam cum e fotograful francez cu cam ce e pe la noi...

Description de la fonction

Créatif généralement free-lance travaillant pour le compte de clients directs ou d'agences de communication, le photographe réalise les prises de vues qui seront utilisées sur différents types de supports imprimés.
Aujourd'hui, cette définition ne correspond cependant plus à la réalité de la profession, les besoins en recrutement étant surtout tournés vers le travail en laboratoire, qui représente près de 90% des offres d'emplois. La profession traverse donc une crise identitaire, accentuée par l'apparition de nouvelles technologies comme le numérique.
Les postes proposés par les laboratoires de photographie (20 à 300 personnes) sont de nature soit technique (développeur, tireur-filtreur) soit manageriale (responsable d'équipe).
Dans la prise de vue qui reste l'activité " artistique " du secteur, on assiste à une hyper-segmentation des professionnels qui exige à chaque fois la parfaite maîtrise de techniques bien particulières : photographie publicitaire, de mode, de spectacle, d'art, sportive, industrielle, d'illustration, aérienne, médicale, de boutique, généraliste etc.

Accessibilité et salaire

Les laboratoires photographiques étant confrontés à une pénurie de main d'œuvre qualifiés, les jeunes diplômés ne rencontrent pas de difficultés à trouver un premier emploi, proposant des possibilités de formation en interne et d'évolution intéressantes.
Il n'en va pas de même pour la prise de vue, les places étant rares et chères. Ainsi, un jeune assistant sera le plus souvent peu rémunéré voire pas du tout s'il intègre un studio réputé, ce poste étant considéré comme un complément à sa formation. A noter des chances d'intégration plus importantes dans la prise de vues industrielle.
Le niveau de salaire est extrêmement variable en laboratoire, du smic à 9000 Frs par mois selon le type de poste occupé. Le photographe indépendant est rémunéré quant à lui, soit à la prise de vues, soit à la journée.

Qualités requises

Créativité, sens artistique, parfaite technique photographique, réactivité, organisation, autonomie, sens des responsabilités, aptitudes à la négociation et à la gestion pour les indépendants.


CAP Photographe et Photographe option retouche (en 3 ans après la 3°), BAC Professionnel Artisanat et Métiers d'Art option photographie, BTS Photographie (en 2 ans après, de préférence, un Bac scientifique ou technique), DEUG et MST Image Photographique (Université Paris VIII et Université d'Aubagne), DNSEP (Diplôme National Supérieur d'Expression plastique : formation en 5 ans après la classe de Terminale.

afirmatii gratuite sau sprijinite de evidenta stiintifica? - de Cassandra la: 02/05/2005 17:08:06
(la: Oamenii devin homosexuali/lesbiene, sau se nasc asa ?)
"se pare ca n-ai gasit pe internet explicatia stiintifica a acelui "complex proces de simbioza". N-o mai cauta ca nici n-ai s-o gasesti, pentru ca nu exista."

Exista si poate fi gasita de cei care stiu ce si unde sa caute:

Symbiosis as a mechanism of evolution: status of cell symbiosis theory.
Margulis L, Bermudes D. Symbiosis. 1985;1:101-24.
Department of Biology, Boston University, MA 02215, USA.

Several theories for the origin of eukaryotic (nucleated) cells from prokaryotic (bacterial) ancestors have been published: the progenote, the direct filiation and the serial endosymbiotic theory (SET). Compelling evidence for two aspects of the SET is now available suggesting that both mitochondria and plastids originated by symbioses with a third type of microbe, probably a Thermoplasma-like archaebacterium ancestral to the nucleocytoplasm. Recognizing the power of symbiosis to recombine in single individual semes from widely differing partners, we develop the idea that symbiosis has been important in the origin of species and higher taxa. The abrupt origin of novel life forms through the formation of stable symbioses is consistent with certain patterns of evolution (e.g punctuated equilibria) described by some paleontologists.

The ring of life provides evidence for a genome fusion origin of eukaryotes.
Rivera MC, Lake JA. Nature. 2004 Sep 9;431(7005):152-5.
Molecular Biology Institute, MCD Biology, University of California, Los Angeles 90095, USA.

Our analyses indicate that the eukaryotic genome resulted from a fusion of two diverse prokaryotic genomes, and therefore at the deepest levels linking prokaryotes and eukaryotes

Cell symbiosis [correction of symbioisis] theory: status and implications for the fossil record.
Margulis L, Stolz JF. Adv Space Res. 1984;4(12):195-201. Department of Biology, Boston University, MA 02215, USA.

Modern biological techniques, especially nucleic acid and protein sequencing, have clearly established the validity of the symbiotic theory of the origin of eukaryotic organelles. The serial endosymbiotic theory in its most extreme form states that three classes of eukaryotic cell organelles (mitochondria, plastids and undulipodia) originated as free-living bacteria (aerobic respirers, phototrophic bacteria and spirochetes respectively) in association with hosts that become the nucleocytoplasm (Thermoplasma-like archaebacterial hosts).

(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Un link important pentru oricine are sau zice ca are sau chiar n-are legatura cu fotografia profesionala dar vrea sa stie cum merg lucrurile:
Si inca o chestie tare:
Si bomboana pe coliva, citeva fraze care pun punctul pe i:
Once a year we rent out a large
meeting room at a downtown hotel, send out hundreds of invitations to
potential buyers of our services, and for $25 or so, we each get a table to
display our wares. We may use pretty much whatever methods we want to catch
the attention of attendees. The other event we sponsor is a portfolio
showcase, wherein we rent space at a local gallery once a year and put up
our photos, layouts, etc., on boards, on the walls and on easels. We invite
hundreds to this event as well. It is more of a passive interaction. All of
the creatives involved try to be in attendance, but that is not required. I
have found it helpful to be on site to answer any questions and to smooze.
On the other hand,the seminars I have attended have been informational, like
a Photoshop techniques or Epson or a Fuji. I can't say that attending
seminars would or would not be helpful for you or anyone else. For me, I
always pick up at least one useful bit of information. I think that everyone
has to come up with his/her own mix of promotion. For me, I seem to get more
work as I get out and about, interact, give out cards, get all the free
promo I can. My hard copy portfolio has gone out only once in the last three
years, to Parade Magazine. I was stunned to learn that they still want to
see trannys and/or tear sheets, not just the cyber equivalent.
Good luck with the web site, and with it's promotion. As far as people
stealing your work, I really believe there is no way to completely eliminate
that. I just keep stuff lo res, watermarked, etc. I have not designed a web
site, but a couple of photo friends have, and they say that Adobe GoLive is
just point and click. Takes about half a hour, so I hear. If this student
web designer daughter of a friend of mine does not come through with my
personal site very soon, I will try GoLive.
I hasten to add a disclaimer: If I had all the answers, or just a few of
them I would be clipping coupons in Bermuda just to keep busy, living off my
trust fund and sipping faux pina coladas (can't drink alcohol, but love the
beach). What sites are some of your photos on?

Sunt mai multe feluri de yoga - de mya la: 07/10/2005 01:24:45
(la: Ce credeti despre yoga)
Sunt mai multe feluri de yoga. Uite aici cate ceva despre subiect daca te intereseaza, numai ca e in engleza textul. Regrete sincere ca nu l-am tradus.

<"i>Yoga is a form of mysticism that developed on the Indian subcontinent in the Hindu cultural context. Its origin is impossible to trace, because it dates back to before recorded history. Yoga comes in many forms specifically designed to suit different types of people. As a result, some forms of yoga have gained significant popularity outside India, particularly in the West during the past century.


The word Yoga originates from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" (literally, "to yoke") and is generally translated as "union" - "integration" - to yoke, attach, join, unite. Yoga is therefore the union and integration of every aspect of a human being, from the innermost to the external. According to Yoga experts, the union referred to by the name is that of the individual soul with the cosmos, or the Supreme.

Yoga has both a philosophical and a practical dimension. The philosophy of yoga ("union") deals with the nature of the individual soul and the cosmos, and how the two are related. The practice of yoga, on the other hand, can be any activity that leads or brings the practitioner closer to this mystical union - a state called self-realization. Over thousands of years, special practical yoga techniques have been developed by experts in yoga, who are referred to as Yogis (male) and Yoginis (female).

These Yoga techniques cover a broad range, encompassing physical, mental, and spiritual activities. Traditionally, they have been classified into four categories or paths: the path of meditation (Raja Yoga), the path of devotion (Bhakti Yoga), the path of selfless service to the Divine (Karma Yoga), and the path of intellectual analysis or the discrimination of truth and reality (Jnana Yoga). The most conspicuous form of yoga in the West, Hatha Yoga - consisting of various physical and breathing exercises and purification techniques - is actually the third and the fourth stages of Ashtanga Yoga of Yoga Sutras by Patanjali.

Clients and friends enjoy Yoga as means of bringing balance into their lives. They report greater clarity in their meditations and a sense of releasing issues that hold them back.

Yoga enhances every facet of physical fitness the mind/body energy exchange supports a mental clarity and concentration. The strength improves posture/alignment to support our daily activities. The flexibility helps to prevent injuries and keeps us supple and youthful. The breathing practices are the foundation and the link between the mind and the body, providing a valuable tool for releasing tension and reducing stress.

The practice of yoga teaches us how to quiet the mind by placing attention on the breath, and also on the movement (stillness) of the body. "

The Puzzles
The man in the Elevator
A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?
This is probably the best known and most celebrated of all lateral thinking puzzles. It is a true classic. Although there are many possible solutions which fit the initial conditions, only the canonical answer is truly satisfying.

The Man who Hanged Himself
Not far from Madrid, there is a large wooden barn. The barn is completely empty except for a dead man hanging from the middle of the central rafter. The rope around his neck is ten feet long and his feet are three feet off the ground. The nearest wall is 20 feet away from the man. It is not possible to climb up the walls or along the rafters. The man hanged himself. How did he do it?

Death in a Field
A man is lying dead in a field. Next to him there is an unopened package. There is no other creature in the field. How did he die?

Anthony and Cleopatra
Anthony and Cleopatra are lying dead on the floor of a villa in Egypt. Nearby is a broken bowl. There is no mark on either of their bodies and they were not poisoned. How did they die?

The Coal, Carrot and Scarf
Five pieces of coal, a carrot and a scarf are lying on the lawn. Nobody put them on the lawn but there is a perfectly logical reason why they should be there. What is it?

Trouble with Sons
A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year. But they were not twins, and they were not adopted. How could this be so?

Push that Car
A man pushed his car. He stopped when he reached a hotel at which point he knew he was bankrupt. Why?

The Arm of the Postal Service
One day a man received a parcel in the post. Carefully packed inside was a human arm. He examined it, repacked it and then sent it on to another man. The second man also carefully examined the arm before taking it to the woods and burying it. Why did they do this?
This one probably has more variations than any other. A great one to puzzle out. It requires plenty of good questions.

A man died and went to Heaven. There were thousands of other people there. They were all naked and all looked as they did at the age of 21. He looked around to see if there was anyone he recognised. He saw a couple and he knew immediately that they were Adam and Eve. How did he know?

A man rode into town on Friday. He stayed for three nights and then left on Friday. How come?
A silly one - but it is surprisingly popular.

Manhole Covers
Why is it better to have round manhole covers than square ones?
This is logical rather than lateral, but it is a good puzzle which can be solved by lateral thinking techniques. It is supposedly used by a very well-known software company as an interview question for prospective employees.

The Deadly Party
A man went to a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early. Everyone else at the party who drank the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die?

The Deadly Dish
Two men went into a restaurant. They both ordered the same dish from the menu. After they tasted it, one of the men went outside the restaurant and shot himself. Why?

The Realization
A man was walking downstairs in a building when he suddenly realized that his wife had just died. How?

The Blind Beggar
A blind beggar had a brother who died. What relation was the blind beggar to the brother who died? (Brother is not the answer).

The Broken Match
A man is found dead in a field. He is clutching a broken match. What happened?

The Music Stopped
The music stopped. She died. Explain.

Swimmer in the Forest
Deep in the forest was found the body of a man who was wearing only swimming trunks, snorkel and facemask. The nearest lake was 8 miles away and the sea was 100 miles away. How had he died?
This is supposedly based on a true incident. Does this make it an urban legend? Many urban legends can be restated as lateral thinking puzzles. This is a very good one of this type.

Lanţul infinit; Interpretarea Copenhaga - de anadi108 la: 13/06/2006 19:55:17
(la: Absolutul şi Cauzalitatea)
Bombastus a scris:
citându-l pe anadi
'Introducerea conceptului de lanţ cauzal infinit, nu are nici o bază,
ci e o speculatie fără nici un suport experimental, '

Matematicienii sint destul de obisnuiti cu notiunea de 'infinit'. In filozofie suportul experimental nu este obligatoriu, doar logica.

În filozofie suportul experimental este esenţial,
o filozofie fără suport experimental este o speculaţie, nu un adevăr.
iar logica nu este un criteriu de adevăr,
ci doar un mechanism, care poate duce la minciuni
dacă premisele de la care se pleacă sunt minciuni.

Bombastus a scris:

Interpretarea din Copenhaga, 1927. faptul ca Einstein si alti oameni de stiinta au crezut pina in ceasul mortii ca va fi descoperita o cauza pentru pentru comportamentul indeterminist observat al particulelor cuantice, nu este un argument.

Replică :
Nu e vorba de nici o credinţă că va fi descoperită o cauză, ci de postularea unor variabile ascunse, necunoscute, care fac imposibilă predictibiliatea fenomenelor cuantice.
Problema e că se confundă predictibilitatea cu cauzalitatea.

Arată, te rog, cum caracterul indeterminist al particulelor cuantice sunt o dovadă pentru evenimente fără cauză.

Bombastus a scris:
Esti la curent cu progresele stiintei din 1927 incoace?

Te rog citeşte aici:

The causal stochastic approach is 'the only known interpretation of quantum mechanics in terms of which all quantum effects can be explained on the basis of causal continuous motions in space and time' (p. 142). It has no place for the ill-defined notion of wave-packet collapse. There is only a 'pseudo-collapse', which 'simply represents a change of our knowledge and does not correspond to any real physical changes in the state of the system' (p. 147). Vigier says that even if the quantum-potential approach 'is not taken as a fully satisfactory description of quantum mechanical reality, it at least shows in a clear way the features that such a description must entail' (p. 169).

Vigier shows how, in stark contrast to the Copenhagen interpretation, the causal interpretation is able to provide an intelligible and visualizable explanation of key experiments such as the double-slit experiment and neutron-interferometry experiments (pp. 137-72). In the double-slit experiment, if both slits are open an interference pattern builds up on the screen even if electrons approach the slits one at a time. In the Copenhagen interpretation, a single particle supposedly passes in some indefinable sense through both slits and interferes with itself, whereas in the causal approach each particle passes through only one slit whereas the pilot wave passes through both. If a device is used to detect through which slit each particle travels, the interference pattern disappears. In the Copenhagen interpretation, the measurement collapses the wave function, whereas in the causal approach it affects the real pilot wave. The Copenhagen interpretation claims that any path-determining measurement will destroy the interference pattern, whereas the causal interpretation predicts that interference will persist if future techniques allow a sufficiently subtle, nondemolition measurement to be performed.

Neutron-interferometry experiments reproduce the double-slit configuration with massive particles and introduce new interaction possibilities through neutron spin. In these experiments, something exchanges energy with the spin-flip coils in the two arms of the interferometer, and this interaction almost certainly involves real neutrons rather than nebulous probability waves. Although such experiments cannot yet determine the path of each individual neutron, they prove 'the incompleteness of the quantum-mechanical Copenhagen description because the persistence of an interference pattern is combined with the existence of a definite trajectory for each particle, a fact forbidden in the Copenhagen interpretation' (p. 257). In other words, the wave and particle aspects of matter can manifest simultaneously in the same experimental setup, thereby contradicting the complementarity principle.

Vigier argues that quantum entanglement (EPR-type) experiments leave no doubt that quantum mechanics is a nonlocal theory, i.e. that quantum systems can show correlations that cannot be explained in terms of classical forces or signals propagating at or slower than the speed of light. However, the EPR experiments conducted to date still contain loopholes, and Chebotarev puts the probability of nonlocal connections at about 90% (for a dissident view, see Thompson, 1998). Vigier proposes that nonlocal interactions are not absolutely instantaneous but causal and superluminal; they are mediated by the quantum potential, carried by superluminal phase waves in a Dirac-type ether consisting of superfluid states of particle-antiparticle pairs. (If superluminal connections were brought about by individual particles rather than phase waves, this would contradict relativity theory, which Vigier upholds.)
Vigier writes:
In my opinion the most important development to be expected in the near future concerning the foundations of quantum physics is a revival, in modern covariant form, of the ether concept of the founding fathers of the theory of light . . . [I]t now appears that the vacuum is a real physical medium which presents some surprising properties . . . (p. 272)

The UPDIG consortium - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/11/2006 06:15:44
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The UPDIG consortium succesfully presented at the Photo Plus in New York,
Version 2 of the Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines (originally
posted in their website last October ).

We should encourage each and everyone involved in commercial digital photography
to download this documents and actually submit the info to stubborn clients ,
designers and everyone in the digital food chain, as to be able to provide a
better approach to standard procedures for delivery, archiving etc.

It is never the last word in these matters, but so far it is a comprehensive
and massively endorsed set of methods and techniques, worth reviewing it.

Actually, ASMP and other groups are suggesting that photographers who are
compliant of the UPDIG methods and techniques should "help the cause" clearly
stating it in their invoices, websites etc.

At the very least, it sets a point of reference against which to compare results,
and a common sense ground to discuss with less knowledgeable people.

So, please, download the pdf documents, familiarize with their contents and keep
them handy for reference.

NLP - Neuro-linguistic programming
"NLP's core idea is that an individual's thoughts, gestures and words interact to create one's perception of the world. By changing one's outlook, therefore, a person can improve his attitudes and actions. These observations can be changed by applying a variety of techniques.
NLP teaches that a person can develop successful habits by amplifying helpful behaviors and diminishing negative ones. Positive change can come when one carefully reproduces the behaviors and beliefs of successful people (called 'modeling'). It also states that all human beings have all the resources necessary for success within themselves." (Wikipedia)

For me being a nature photographer means walking in grass fields at sunrise to take macro photos; being fascinated by the view of a little bug; watching with awe a sunset between the mountains, when the landscape is bathed into the golden light...

I have begun using Photoshop years ago and now I consider it an essential component of my work. Photoshop is an extraordinary tool and I highly recommend to everyone to spend some time learning how to post-process his photos: being able to careful post process a photo is almost as important as being able to master the techniques in the field!

"Şi ce putere de predicţie mai are aşa zisa futurologie?"

nici una.
futurologia e bullshit.

nimeni nu a fost capabil sa prezica razboaiele mondiale.
nimeni nu a prezis criza din 1933.
nimeni nu a prezis colapsul financiar mondial din ultimii ani.
nimeni nu a prezis conflictul care a distrus Libanul.

post-evenimente e simplu sa faci teorii si sa incardrezi povestea astfel incat sa se potriveasca cu anumite teorii, si asta e jobul istoricilor
(hint: "hindshight bias", "narrative fallacy")

Iata ce spune un ateu, premiat Nobel - de zaraza sc la: 26/08/2013 12:59:27 Modificat la: 26/08/2013 13:07:41
(la: Tor, Matricea universala, energia libera, dominatia globala... si alte "stupiditati"...)

citatul care urmeaza e de pe net:
"Dr. Michio Kaku, unul dintre oamenii de știință care a participat la realizarea studiului, susține că déjà vu-ul provine din abilitatea oamenilor de a trece, sub o formă sau alta, dintr-un univers paralel în altul. Această teorie este una îndrăzneață, fără prea multă bază reală, dar astfel se deschid noi drumuri spre înțelegerea unui sentiment atât de bizar.
Fizicianul Steve Weinberg, laureat al Premiului Nobel, confirmă teoria lui Kaku, și ne asigură că trăim într-un multivers, în care există un număr impresionant de mare de universuri paralele. Astfel, realitatea noastră, cea de care suntem conștienți, se petrece și în alte lumi paralele, dar sub alte forme.

Pentru ca lucrurile să fie înțelese pe deplin, Weinberg a comparat realitățile cu frecvențele radio. Realitatea de care suntem conștienți este la o anumită frecvență, la care creierul nostru s-a adaptat, dar în același loc, în același moment, există o multitudine de alte frecvențe. În acest fel, chiar în momentul în care executăm o anumită acțiune, pe frecvențe diferite se propagă universurile paralele.

Déjà vu-ul se poate produce în clipa în care în creier se intersectează mai multe frecvențe ale realităților paralele. El primește informații din diverse realități și nu poate să le gestioneze transformându-le în amintiri. Atunci când în realitate se petrece un lucru asemănător intervine sentimentul de déjà vu."

M-am dus pe wikipedia sa ma conving ca Weinberg chiar a spus asta si daca nu cumva a luat-o si el razna ca cel de mai sus.

Si mi-a placut ce am gasit. Daca Weinberg e ateu, atunci sunt si eu! Cu o asemenea credinta n-am fost niciodata de acord. Astea sunt dovezi ca religia pe pamant e manipulare.

"Frederick Douglass told in his Narrative how his condition as a slave became worse when his master underwent a religious conversion that allowed him to justify slavery as the punishment of the children of Ham. Mark Twain described his mother as a genuinely good person, whose soft heart pitied even Satan, but who had no doubt about the legitimacy of slavery, because in years of living in antebellum Missouri she had never heard any sermon opposing slavery, but only countless sermons preaching that slavery was God's will. With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil — that takes religion."

google translate traduce asa:
(cititi printre randuri daca nu stiti engleza)

"Frederick Douglass a spus în povestirea ce starea lui ca un sclav a devenit mai rău atunci când stăpânul său a suferit o transformare religioasă care i-a permis pentru a justifica sclavia ca pedeapsa a copiilor lui Ham. Mark Twain a descris mama sa ca un om cu adevărat bun, al cărui moale inima milă chiar Satana, dar care nu a avut nici o îndoială cu privire la legitimitatea sclaviei, pentru că în anii de viață în Antebellum Missouri ea nu a auzit nici o predică se opune sclaviei, dar numai nenumărate predici predicând că sclavia a fost voia lui Dumnezeu. cu sau fără religie, bine oamenii se pot comporta bine și oamenii răi pot face rău, ci pentru oamenii buni sa nu faca rau - care ia religie ".
