Re: Quote of the day

There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves. - Will Rogers I, unfortunately, belong to the third group. If one, supposedly, "learns" by reading, only, then they, unfortunately, beco...

Re: The Biden Binder

Well, the statement causing your personal confused interpretation is contingent on you (plural) using the mask for its intended rational purpose during a pandemic, a purpose which satisfies the needs of both public heath and personal freedom. Since you personally don’t wear the mask as a prophylacti...

Re: The Biden Binder

By the way, WHAT is 'it' EXACTLY that, so called, "muslim women" want to, so call, "protect themselves" from? They are required to wear face covering to be protected from men, to be not alluring to men for if they are alluring and are molested, it will be their fault for being alluring, and punishm...

Re: The Biden Binder

Also, there may be a reason to wear a mask, like, for example, STOPPING 'you' spreading viruses, which may KILL "others". There is, as there should be, an objective, ethical criterion for appropriate mask wearing. Why? Because it is both a matter of public health, and a matter of individual freedom...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

The Molly Maguires

Based on historical events. A favourite flick because it doesn’t propagandize right and wrong, good and evil. The viewer must decide. This scene shows the movie pacing that is consistent with setting and time, among other things.

Re: The Biden Binder

It is very difficult to take seriously the health concerns of a country where the beginning of a river is used as a toilet and the people use the other end of the river to bath in and drink from--and wonder why they are always sick. You don't suppose the fact that, for many in India, prostitution i...

Re: Understanding the religious mindset

Walker, you're still not showing me how your silly Biden obsession has anything to do with the point I was making. _______ My point is far more significant, important, and philosophical than anything you've dredged up so far, although your KKK obsession is relevant to Biden's well-known racism. So,...

Re: How time can only exist at now and yet has a direction?

I think we can agree on the arrow of time which tells us that there is a direction in time. Time, however, exists at one point so-called now, the past is collective memory and the future does not exist objectively. My question is how time can have a direction if it only exists at one point? That is...

I don't know, Walker ... You're fired. :lol: Or rather, to philosophize, pretend you're in a world where compensation depends on what you know, rather than what you don't know, and you're then in an increasingly rare real world where ignorance that is caused by not knowing is also not subsidized.

Re: Understanding the religious mindset

she is simply hoping that her object of adoration will deign to lay hands upon her child so that she can from then on regale her friends and relatives with a story of how her child has been blessed by the touch of a divine being... ...(or, in this case, one of Satan's favorite minions). :lol: :lol:...
