How many people backup their computer on a regular basis?
I have a Macbook. I previously had online backup service with ISP but that is not available at my new home. I use Dropbox and a Time Capsule wireless hard drive to keep Macbook backed up constantly. It is easy and doesn't seem to slow down computer like the ISP online back up did. I did recover some accidentally deleted files from the wireless hard drive and that was easy too. I also have the Packrat option for Dropbox in case I accidentally delete something again.

Is divine revelation possible? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Luis, I agree with you. If God created everything and then dictated our actions and the results, why get out of bed in the morning. I think God says, "Here is your life. See what you can do with it." To him who is given much, much is expected. Like the parable of the talents: To one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one. To each he gave his goods according to their abilities. He who had five talents earned another five talents. He who had two talents gained two more but the one who received one talent dug a hole and hid his lord’s money. When the lord returned he called the one who received the five talents. He came forward with the money and brought five additional talents. His lord said: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things; I will now set you as steward over many; enter forthwith into the joy of your lord. Then he who had the two talents came forward, saying: ‘Lord, you gave me two talents and I have gained two more. And his lord said: ‘Well done, good and faithful steward; you also have been faithful over a few things, and I will now set you over many; enter you into the joy of your lord. And then came the one who had one talent. This servant said, ‘Lord, I knew you and realized that you were a shrewd man who expected gains where you had not personally labored; therefore was I afraid to risk that which was intrusted to me. I hid your talent; here it is. But his lord answered: ‘You are an indolent and slothful steward. ‘Take away this one talent from this unprofitable servant and give it to him who has ten. God created everything and blessed us with the opportunity and the excitement of discovering what it is all about. God has given us life - knowledge, skills, opportunities, resources, a mind, a body, a personality, and the angels to guide us - Lets take this life and see what good things we can do with the talents God has given us.
