Re: Who doesn't deserve our respect?

Whom does not deserve our respect, perhaps nobody, perhaps this term respect should be made applicable to each and every sole merely on account of considering them to be human, or at least on the first basic level of respect. The homeless already deserve more respect than the rest of us on account ...

There is concern that a big chunk will never find employment again as there's going to be a lot looking for work.

Re: Thank God Hillary Clinton Didn't Become President!

Of course it will put people out of work bob as automation has done every time. The issue is for how long and the scale this time as 'AI' and robotics will replace a very broad swathe of jobs whereas before it was in specific fields so there is concern that a big chunk will never find employment ag...

Who doesn't deserve our respect?

The homeless, for example, often don't get respect for a variety of reasons. Is society too harsh or critical in how people get treated?

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

Do you spank your kids without telling them why as well? Below a certain age, children don't understand and I don't punish, above that age I punish and tell them they did something wrong but explaining is no use, beyond a certain age they might understand the explanation. The age varies with each c...

Re: Transracialism

Can a white person be Asian? Why would a person choose an supposedly destructive concept such as race in order to benefit himself as a bearer of 'equality' as attempting to be a certain race he is not? Supposedly acknowledging that race itself exists leads to a problem of racism. According to peopl...

How much freedom does math have?

A couple of examples to explain. 1) With Pythagorean's theorem, dozens of proofs exist (including one by a US President). So you have the choice of which proof you favor. 2) In calculus, certain problems can be solved in more than one way (algebra, etc.) There are other situations where certain proo...

Re: Cyclic numbers

1 "reflects" or "directs itself into itself". In doing this a cycle is achieved through reflection which in turn propogates further numbers as extensions of itself. That's just word salad. But one question occurs to me. Are you doing math, metaphysics, or poetry? Perhaps I'm taking you too literall...

Do number groups have more meaning than individual numbers?

I would contend yes. For example we have the number one. Now I ask you to put all the other numbers out of your mind and focus on the number one. Since we don't have the other numbers to compare with, then quantity has no meaning with the number one. The same with the number two when we don't have o...
