Re: Pugilism v pacifism

... Many were disappointed and angered by Ali’s refusal to serve, even though he based his action on the reasons you cited. Additionally, Ali had recently converted to Islam, and the teachings of his religion forbade him from killing a human being. ... Islam doesn't forbid killing others just only ...

Re: Pugilism v pacifism

So boxers aren’t drafted and they don’t intend to kill, but could there be a boxer/conscientious objector? Boxing is a sport; a boxer’s aggressiveness is part of his training and preparation for a fight. Being as this is a sport, anyone but the most extreme pacifist should be able to take part. I c...

Re: Interesting insights about love.

Something which too readily turns into its opposite. true Prophet! the other side of the coin is Hate. it is also a powerful emotion (second only to Love IMO). and Hate is the test of Love. ie. under travail can you come to Hate one you Loved prior? (one of the big questions of life). I'm don't kno...

Love is when you see him/her making out with another gal/guy and you don't feel jealous.
no. in the above, jealiousy would be warranted.

love of that person does not change either, just your action - kick them to the curb or not.

How about shame and embarassment ?

Do you still love someone if you feel embarassed by their behaviour in public places ?

Re: Interesting insights about love.

At his peak of funniness he was irresistible. Just look at the women he had. Women he had, or had by women. Honestly - use your imagination. 'He's' had. Mind you, I didn't know he was a sleaze back then. He may be a sleaze, but he was a damn good movie director and offered many excellent works. jus...

Definitely.
I've got a feeling that, as far as Hobbes is concerned, that is not the correct answer, VT. :D

Re: Interesting insights about love.

Love begins when you move from liking someone because of to liking someone inspite of. I find this very encouraging as I am someone with a lot of "in-spite ofs".

According to the presiding court, which sentenced him to death, he had been teaching radical ideas to youth, including atheism, which got him the chair. Bu...
