You presented a defined argument. It has flaws. You have dodged all questions on that by blatantly trying to make your flawed reasoning my problem.

If Dr. Joe claims to have education and skills he lacks, if he's peddling services falsely, he's potentially willingly, knowingly, depriving (in part or in whole) another of his life, liberty, or property without just cause.

Re: What is your current analysis of ...

Obama ordered over 500 drone strikes. Killed something like 3500 people and 300 civilians - nobody bats an eyelid. That's not really true. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/secrecy-defines-obamas-drone-war/2011/10/28/gIQAPKNR5O_story.html https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/obam...

Re: drone

Some individuals can't be doctors for themselves... Some individuals can't be school teachers for their children... Some individuals...can't afford to be farmers to feed themselves... We (can) encourage free men and women to choose their own careers, which includes doctors, teachers, constables, et...

Re: Flash

"There are things which God cannot do, these things are logically impossible, drawing a 4 sided triangle or cooking up a Thursday flavoured pie for instance. The universe of sentences with meanings does not allow these things to be done by any force, even God." Seems to me: the novelist (God) can w...

Re: Flash

Henry may like certain expressions of minimalism, but he also likes instinct and he likes to keep things simple. When those latter things conflict with the former thing, the simplicity and instinct are trusted ahead of it. Can you cite an example of such conflict? Are you still in favour additional...

Re: Flash

But it's not theoretically possible for God to change a Man into a Woman. To do do would render the categories of man and woman meaningless.As per your own words here.... If you can design, build, and sustain a universe, then -- yeah -- I'm thinkin' you could rejigger it as you like, and reorder or...

Re: Hold up Henry; what's a libertarian?

Well, I like stuff: motorbikes, beer, hospitals, holidays and whatnot, and I don't mind paying the people who design and make all that happen. I see that as a very libertarian position. Maybe. I'm never really sure what people mean by libertarian. It clearly means different things on opposite sides...

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

So it is metaphysically possible to change from man to woman (an admission that in iteslf disproves your own argument), That it is "theoretically possible" for God to do something says nothing about whether it's humanly possible, and far less suggests the case is any more than speculative, which it...

Nope. One is valid, the other is hooey. Never mind, Flash, as you (essentially) say 'you got better things to do'.
Indeed, I am now off to the pub, see you guys later.

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

So God can reassign gender then. He could indeed, if we're speaking in theory. But does He? Do we have even one case of Him doing so? No, obviously. So it is metaphysically possible to change from man to woman (an admission that in iteslf disproves your own argument), and now the question is merely...

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

Meh, that'll do. The other one works for me too though. They are both valid enough ways of describing the matter in their own right, as long as you understand the limits of the claims that can be made from either position is a function of the very limited justification available in such matters. But...
