Re: Is Bob Evenson an American Traitor?

I would suggest, Walker, that what you have written is a pure ideological statement. It appears to you to be completely free of ideology, and as close to 'truth' as falling rain, and yet it is highly ideological, and the ideological in it will determine how you view --- how you do view --- this dest...

Re: Noam Chomsky and Our Collective Responsibility

Interesting OP and thread Gary. From where I sit it is interesting, if a little frightening, to observe some of the contributors to your thread more or less barfing up half-baked, prejudiced, defamatory statements and imagining that this constitutes good argument. Honestly, I don't get it. Of Chomsk...

Re: Civil Rights

Let’s inspect a few examples. One of the commonest tricks of the propagandist in any age is name-calling. If he desires us to accept something, he applies a good name to it; if he desires us to reject it, applies an evil one. Name-calling is nothing more on earth but the arguments of damnation beca...

Re: Civil Rights

This is a platform for discussing ideas, Science Fan, and I have absolutely no problem that you write whatever you wish to write, on any topic and theme, and I encourage you to respond in any way you desire to anything I write. I do hope that you will modify and also improve your argument-style, and...

Re: Civil Rights

That is the danger of 'philosophy'. Some people are just good at making the irrational sound rational to those who are gullible, not very bright, uneducated, or unable to think critically. The only 'point' in arguing with someone like Gustav is to expose his lies and agenda to anyone who might othe...

Re: Civil Rights

This is underhanded grandstanding argumentation for a number of reasons. You should yourself be able to discern why and to notice the corruption of argument-method. What you do is to spread an issue of contention from post to post and from thread to thread and it is always within this peculiar categ...

Re: How do Christians Expect to Convert Atheists?

You asked a question, Lacewing, why don't you select the part you do understand and comment. What is the point of asking a question if you have no intention of accepting the answer? (That is why we must begin from good-faith).

Re: How do Christians Expect to Convert Atheists?

It is a deliberate misunderstanding to see anything I said as desire or need to be an 'asshole'. The only thing that I can see might be objectionable is: "My sense when I read what you write is that you think in very feminine terms. I tend to see this as a weakness. 'Spirituality' is in my view some...

Re: How do Christians Expect to Convert Atheists?

Do you think that everything must be learned or influenced? Aren't these learnings and influences manmade? The angelic realm you look toward is not manmade, is it? Doesn't it seem more likely that spirituality is naturally in all life -- and possibly obscured or tainted by human noise rather than d...

You go from post to post with the same message. Well, I guess it is important to you. Ask questions, I'll answer and all will be enriched.

Re: Civil Rights

You are confusing Nazi race-distinctions with European Identitarianism. The Nazis desired to expel the Jews from Germany. This expulsion was just one more in a long historical line of expulsions. There have been at least 10 major ones and 50 minor ones. If you read 'The Destruction of the European J...

Re: Rewriting American History

SF: Each of them have their reasons, certainly for 'not leaving you alone'. I continue to comment on your posts because you represent and interesting 'case' for me. That is the purpose of a forum you buffoon! In respect to Irving, and though I appreciate your declarations about Irving, other things,...

LaceWing: Anytime you want to engage in a good-faith Q&A of my fine person, and provided you act half normal and, if possible, don't 'dance' or 'spin' too dizzyingly, just let me know.
