Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

it is very odd that the very same people who want to make abortion illegal are also against sex education and, in many cases, birth control

Re: Age: "I have already explained what a 'person' is, to me."

Why would a human being in this day and age, when this is written, even have or own a gun? What logical explanation could there be given for a gun to even still be in existence? obviously you are not a farmer where i live we have coyotes and we have feral pigs neither mixes well with free range pou...

Re: Why the West is morally superior

it is interesting to note that people generally think that their own country / culture / etc is superior - and then try to justify it with reasons that purport to be universal

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

With at least wrestling, boxing and Karate people physically compete in weight classes/divisions and it should be such with all physical competition, else it's just about bullying. I mean would there be any real physical competition between Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime and Peewee Herman in hi...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

I taught MA students for years - many from Muslim nations. I ran courses for overseas Muslim women and men who had been brutalised - al...

Re: Missionary Killed on Remote Island: Discuss?

Is it not logical to assume that the Christian God would surely be forgiving of anyone who never heard the preaching of the “gospel” and thus grant them entrance into heaven? logical perhaps but that is not the way this was often understood the missionaries considered their mission so urgent precis...
