Re: Terrorism poses no 'existential' threat?

Greta wrote: Ultimately terrorism is just another way of waging war, and war is obviously an existential threat.
But since terrorism can never result in the end of the "existence" of a state, as a war can, it is not like other wars; more like a protest movement.

Re: Terrorism poses no 'existential' threat?

The only existential threat that is possible would be if terrorists were to acquire a large collection of nuclear bombs.

Aside from that people in the west suffer from more deaths by vacuum cleaners and other household items than terrorists.

Re: Who picks who in a relationship?

Is Catherine Townsend known in the UK ? She is supposedly a columnist in the Independent. I happened to pick her book from a shelf full of free books. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Flirting is not yet picking, I would say. It is just examinating a potential pick. Like one would examine a thing in ...

Re: Refutation of Time Travel

Claim: If Time Travel would be true throughout the history of human kind, at any point in time whether past or future, time travellers would be "all over us" in telling about the future or past or whatever. However, there are no stories of either such people or common stories of such being told fro...

Re: Abortion: whose wishes should predominate?

I thought I just gave you a bunch of scenarios. I must have imagined it. It's called ignoring what you disagree with, Hobbes' is good at that. If you were as clever as you seem to think you are you will have noticed that the underlying rules I suggested would not allow these scenarios to be relevan...

That's got nothing to do with churches like your stupid Church of England, you wanker!

In the UK we control the church. In the USA the church controls the state.

Re: Axioms as Randomness

Pointing toward the deficiencies in axioms only magnifies the degrees towards which axioms can manifest proportions and definitions (a light shines relatively brighter in the dark). Axioms as probabilistic densities of observation takes into account randomness. Their is nothing contradictory about ...

A misinterpretation of what I said. You are forgiven.

Re: Axioms as Randomness

I think you should insert bigger words, I still don't think you were giving me your best. I have a better idea, as I am arguing the "self is undefined and axioms have an element of the self, axioms therefore have a degree of randomness." Why don't you just argue what "the self" is? After all you do...

Re: Hi I'm new too.

I didn't say the brain turned to light. You're saying that. That is utter crap. That is EXACTLY what you are saying, since consciousness is what the brain does, and without the brain there is no consciousness. So without the star there is no light that can be perceived further away once the star ha...
