Re: What's the Proper Role of Religion and Politics?

I don't think anything good has ever come of blending government with religion. Unless, that is, one considers burning witches, persecuting atheists, gays, women, good things when done in the name of religion. atheist purges in the name of the state are better... 5 million here, 5 million there... ...

Re: Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)

I don't get it about Ludwig Wittgenstein. What is the big deal? One thing he says is "the world is not made up of things, it is made up of facts" But things and facts are much the same. Wars were things and they certainly proved to be facts. Sometimes I wonder about philosophers. Facts and things c...
