Re: Is this sex discrimination?

That $.77 figure is one I consistently see coming up (in one case it was $.75). Right. It would be from 2010 statistics only measuring pay disparity. I'm not entirely sure where all the other numbers come from. I think some of them are based on more local numbers, and some of them are coming from e...

Re: Can God do evil?

If you had any sense you'd be embarrassed for asking such a foolish question. I mean, you are literate (I assume), you have access to the Internet, there are numerous books about philosophy of religion available at no cost and you, using the screen name "philosophy explorer," have the mindless auda...

Re: Is this sex discrimination?

That a woman gets paid $.77 on the dollar that a man gets paid ...No. Not like you would think, anyway. That particular estimate of the 'gender pay gap' is an overly simplistic one which compares the median income between men and women. It does not account for things like job differences or qualifi...

What never goes out of style?

I think major categories such as comedy or drama never go out of style.

Anything to add?

Is this sex discrimination?

That a woman gets paid $.77 on the dollar that a man gets paid? Yet employers are supposed to pay based on how they value the employee (along with other factors).

What is the resolution?

Seems to me if anyone can do evil, then He would most likely do so due to Biblical stories and His qualifications.

Do you agree?

Re: Are any women brutish?

Don't recall reading about women being brutish in history, You probably don't recall hearing much about women in history; Their roles in society only changed relatively recent on a historical timescale. Those roles didn't allow much for contribution, but it also didn't allow much for the negative t...

Only you can actually live your life and so logically it has to yours and not anyone elses
Do not the farm and laboratory animals live for the pleasure of humans? For humans then, is the reason it's said we own our lives is due to our level of intelligence?

On what basis do we own our own lives?

What entitles us to say this? Each of us have parents who created us who would more justifiably own our lives than we do ourselves. Aside from legislation, I know of nothing that gives me ownership of my own life.

Many many things to consider. How long should people live for? Should there be a standard style of dressing? How smart should people be? How much variation from one person to the next? Can we trust scientists to regulate the weather? Should we have a world government? What do we do about the world p...

From time to time, I see a certain article repeated on the internet and presented as if it were a new article. Anybody else ever encounter anything like this?

Re: Humans are fundamentally evil

Life requires that you kill and eat other living things. Life itself is fundamentally brutish and thus so are we. However, life also has an easygoing, amenable side to it when it's not killing and competing, and thus so do we. Here I disagree. If humans are given an alternative (e.g. laboratory mea...
