Internet sophistication

Has the world (or you) gotten more sophisticated due to the internet?

Re: gods omniscience and tequila

God is omniscient, right so, this means that god know what it feels like to be the person who downs 20 shots of tequila, barfs on their date, and wakes up with a vicious hangover in ER but how does God come to have this knowledge - it is easy enough to understand how he might have objective knowled...

Is there a best way to dress?

Each year the clothing fashion changes and it seems like people can't make up their minds. So I don't think people will ever settle on a fashion. In fact when you look inside a typical person's closet, you will see various types of clothing.

How do you see it?

What's missing from this thread?
Maybe your sanity, because your replies seem to be making less and less sense as this thread goes on.
OH I get it. The thread is missing your ad homs. :lol:

Re: Is this sex discrimination?

No, the primary issue is that it's not a par-to-par comparison. It's not even that the figure is technically unreliable, it's that it shouldn't be used as fuel for feminist activism, because it's not giving you the full picture of why that pay disparity exists. As far as the government recognizing ...

Re: Is this sex discrimination?

So far you're not giving any worthwhile arguments and I still stand with the court system. Well I don't even know what your argument is, because it seems you're intentionally being very cryptic. And it seems you and others are being cryptic saying that because the $.77 on the dollar figure ties in ...

Re: The #1 world issue

Technically it's not climate change, but global warming where the concern is and I say it's overblown. Sea level has risen slightly over 8 inches over the past 129 years or about an inch every 16 years. We have enough time to adjust, but my fear is we may be overreacting which could cause more dama...

What do I want them to do about it? Their job. ..And what is that? What does their job entail, to you? 'Fixing' something that isn't a problem in the first place, by ruining a drive for competition?

They're the ones who have the official, final say in this matter But what do you want them to do about it, specifically?

Re: Is this sex discrimination?

I'm not easy to convince about that Well what convinced you that the pay gap exists due to gender discrimination, in the first place? It's not enough to just point out how there's a pay disparity, you have to prove that pay disparity exists specifically due to female discrimination. PS If we're tal...
