Re: We Are Yet Again Repeating the History of Bigotry

VT: You were the one claiming that Trump is not a racist. That's PC. Apparently these days, no matter how racist a person is we must never, ever call a person an actual racist. For whatever reason that is I refuse to go along with such idiocy. So, you, along with every other person who denies that T...

Re: Jewish Bloodline?

VT: Please explain for all of us then what actual boundaries you used for this "Palestine." Palestine was never a nation, but a geographical area, named by the Romans to insult the Jews. The Palestinian mandate included land taken from the Ottoman Empire and arbitrarily divided by the Brits and Fren...

Re: We Are Yet Again Repeating the History of Bigotry

VT: Now, there you go being politically correct and also putting words in my mouth I never stated. I stated Trump was and is a racist, but not solely because he loves Putin and Russia. If you think he is not a racist, then please provide us all with a non-racist reason why he pardoned a racist sheri...

Re: We Are Yet Again Repeating the History of Bigotry

America did not want him. Most Americans have always hated Trump.

Re: Jewish Bloodline?

Palestinians are Jordanians and Egyptians. Arafat was Egyptian, born in Cairo. This is why there was no so-called Palestinian liberation movement when the land in question was controlled by Jordan and Egypt --- Jordanians and Egyptians would have laughed at the idea that some portion of their own ci...

Re: Cow sets a bad example for progressive society

Nick A: Simone made all sorts of superstitious claims about an alleged God, so we can write her off as a person who was interested in the truth, and certainly she was incapable of dealing with reality. She had no evidence to support her claims regarding God, she just made them up. Pat Robertson does...

Re: We Are Yet Again Repeating the History of Bigotry

VT: Not being American, you missed the point of why Trump and Trumpers love Putin and Russia. This goes back to the Obama administration. It was common knowledge that Obama and Putin did not get along. Most of the white-supremacists in the USA loved Putin and hated Obama, so Putin become basically a...

Gaffo: You stated that, you "can not agree as long as Israel continues to illegally occupy the WB and deny the non-jews living their full Israeli citizenship." Please explain how Israel is illegally occupying the so-called west bank, when even the UN officially recognizes the land to be in dispute. ...

Re: Fake News

First of all, I disagree with 1's assertion that this question is not philosophical, because it cannot be answered. That's typically the type of questions philosophy does address, and your question is an epistemological one, regarding knowledge. I don't think there is a final answer that can be give...

Re: Valintines

How could anyone know? If a person did go through a situation where they lost a lover, then they would not have experienced the situation of never having loved at all. On the other hand, if they had never fallen in love, then how would they be able to compare their situation to one where they would ...

Re: Cow sets a bad example for progressive society

1: Your response of cussing at me is duly noted. That's a typical response I get from people on social media. If you had actually read my earlier comment, you will see that I asked a question regarding the possible relevance of Trump to an earlier statement you made. A question is asking for informa...

Trumpers --- Endorsing Bigotry in the Faces of Everyone

Trump's campaign was not to make America great, but rather, to make America great "again." By adding the word "again" into his campaign slogan, Trump specifically referred to taking America back to some point in its past. Trump, however, has never stated when in the past America was "great." I've al...

Re: We Are Yet Again Repeating the History of Bigotry

VT: Good points. I think the only thing I would add is that when people no longer are concerned about the truth, then freedom also dies. Because, if the truth does not matter, if opinions, lies, and ideology are accepted just as much as objective fact, then how can anyone speak truth to power? They ...

Nick A: Evolution is a scientific fact as well as a scientific theory, so your personal opinion on what evolution is has no relevance. Can you give me a specific example of some person whom you believe is not a "conditioned atom" and who is a "seeker of objective truth"? I have a feeling that your v...

Re: Cow sets a bad example for progressive society

1: When you claim that, "[a] 'progressive society' is one in which the society goes from the back to the front, and then the process repeats itself," I have no idea what you mean by such a vague statement as that. Are you stating that Trump is a progressive? After all, his campaign slogan was "Make ...
