Re:

Let's have a global rebellion that will hang all commies and restore to the individual what is his (self-owneship & -direction). Privatize all production (and hang any bastid who looks to shore up a failing industry with 'too big to fail'). Then we can all live as human beings instead of as propert...

Re: Fewer people die, fewer people gets born

I say: Let's have a regime change in Denmark that will impose the Death Penalty to the elite, and give the people the power to dertermine their future. Nationalize the means of production if neccessary, and hang and slowly strangle the rich exploiters. Then we can live in a welfare paradise. Yes, M...

Fewer people die, fewer people gets born

I'm reading an article in a Danish newspaper, describing just how bad it is that the population has stagnated: Fewer people die, and fewer people gets born. This is due to better health care and birth control, and that apparantly, is a bad thing because it means we won't be able to fight a war with ...

Why the West is morally superior

The West may not be militarily or economically superior to say China, Saudi Arabia etc. It may be, but it may well turn out that China becomes the world largest superpower, unfortunately. But I will argue why The West (Western Europe+US/Canada+Australia and maybe even countries in Asia/Middle East u...

Re: The Contradiction of the Three Laws of Logic

You can't trust intuition. Never. Intuition is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) for the brain to work with, but as with other software, if you really want to understand stuff, you go behind the GUI and read the source code itself. I don't think you can go behind intuition, let alone read the "sourc...

Re: Selfish God

A priori is a claim that has been accepted by previous consensus. I have often heard in the common vernacular that God’s plan cannot be understood by mortal man. This lead me to believe that the claim that humans cannot understand God’s plan has been widely regarded as a given. I didn’t think I wou...

Re: Selfish God

A priori. How? Why? Explain! You haven't explained ANYTHING so far. "A priori", you say, but you haven't provided any theoretical deduction whatsoever. A priori is a claim that has been accepted by previous consensus. I have often heard in the common vernacular that God’s plan cannot be understood ...

Re: Selfish God

If God exists, God could have a plan. (a priori) If God has a plan, it could not be understood by a human. (a priori) If God exists or not, there can be no plan that a human could understand. God’s plan cannot be understood by humans. Why? Why can't God's plan not be understood by humans? A priori....

Re: Selfish God

How a God who is Love, fully self giving, could wish that everybody should Love him more than the amount you love others? God’s plan(s) cannot be understood by humans. This explains the premise of the question. Your comment is void of any arguments. Religious people always says that, it's a (too) c...

Godwins Law - why not applicable to Stalinist-accusations?

As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1 If you compare anyone to nazi, you've lost the discussion. So says the supporters of the Godwin-law, even if the ones you compare to Hitler are... neo-nazis. But i'd like to ask a question h...

Re: Why is pride a sin?

When you feel proud of something you celebrate your own greatness. Is it impossible to celebrate your competence, ingenuity, perseverance and hard work, without the extreme of calling it "greatness"? This is dangerous and can lead to a slip in the very near future. Or, it might lead to the courage ...

Re: Why lazyness is good

Absolutely spot-on, and yet they have always been vilified and often tortured and murdered because of a public that is only too eager to believe any bullshit their politicians tell them. The public has the whole 'hero' crap backwards. How can someone who goes off to kill people they don't know from...
