Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

Answer please, according to the Bible:

Does a woman have the right to disobey her husband when he takes her to atheist wife-swapping meet-ups, and forces her to fornicate and deboucher with strange men she is not married to?

Re: Wasting time with a dimwit

...Paul was gay...Jesus was gay and Simone Weil was a lesbian. The modern mind has lost its natural understanding of the varied purposes of sex and sex energy. Then advocates of ignorance become experts and everyone suffers. NO! JESUS WAS NOT GAY!!! He was, instead, a bi-curious queer pre-op transg...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

In our perceived world the Universe is the greatest. By size and by complexity. Can you imagine the universe? No, you can't. It is there, we know it's a reality, but you can't possibly imagine the universe in all of its details. Therefore the greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest. Ther...

Re: If God is the greatest imaginable, He is pretty small and lame

Hehe. It's actually not blank spaces that need to be filled. It is connectedness between thoughts that I can't see. Do I need new glasses? You could shift from snifter to tumbler but I advise the sobriety of cool water from a jelly-jar glass after the diuretic of morning coffee, one of modern civil...

Re: Must Doctor disclose?

What poisons cause cancer? There must be some, but it's buried in the pertinent literature. Saccharin (artificial sweetener) causes cancer. Red meat causes cancer. Hair spray causes cancer. Smoking causes cancer. Bread causes cancer. Breathing the air causes cancer. Eating radioactive material cause...

Re: Must Doctor disclose?

I understand now. X notifies the doc of the possibility of poison. Does the doc inform the patient of the suggestion? Before test? After test? And if after test, if negative? If positive? Any poison? Or a particular one? If no particular poison, just general, then X suffers from paranoid schizophren...

Re: If God is the greatest imaginable, He is pretty small and lame

The snake is a snake even if you think it’s a rope. Making the reality of the imagined dependent upon an imagining (small and lame) which is independent of the actual reality of the imagined just doesn’t make a whole lick of sense, unless, the total is greater than the sum of the parts, which then ...

However some have greater imaginations than others
I hear you, surreptitious57. Maybe we should run a competition here, on this site, an informal competition, to see whose imagination is the greatest.

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

You don't even have to go at the scale of the universe to demonstrate our inability to deal with complexity. We can't even imagine an atom in all of its quantum states. True. Originally I wanted to compare an apple to an imaginary apple (which is way less complex than a real apple). Or take anythin...

Re: Must Doctor disclose?

If a Medical Doctor is taking a patient's blood quite often as part of cancer treatment, and if a non-patient third party X suggests the Doctor check the blood for poison (murder) while he's at it, must that Doctor disclose to the patient the fact that the suggestion was made? I know the Doctor wou...

Re: Mankind its Downfall

Yeah, that stupefaction was good. My favourite was this: "creating his own boredom out of his own affluence," That's me. I am a big-nosed, weak-kneed, wide-rumped, fucked-out, limp, old man, bored to hell in my luxuriously appointed basement room, replete with expensive authentic cockroaches, rented...
