Re: "It's alive, we must save it!"

If Henry has any sense he will slither back into the hole he slithered out of. But as he has no sense then it will be same old same old..... It turns out that Mr Faux-Libertarian favour government interference into people's personal lives. I guess this is the right time to then do DNA testing on th...

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

Nazism is the extreme of a broader trend. Most large governments are now either fascist regimes, corrupt and authoritarian or hard right always tending further towards authoritarianism. Global politics generally has lurched far to the right. People are insecure. The world is changing fast. In desper...

Re: "It's alive, we must save it!"

True Veg, it's futile, which means the above is really just a catharsis. Oops, here's another ... More like: is it a person? When does it become a person? If it's a person, shouldn't it be accorded the same consideration as any other person? Most experts agree that around third trimester is about it...

The rapid hypicrisy of mis-named "pro-lifers"

It's alive, we must save it! Save the microbes! Save the slimy, brainless invertebrates! Save the small, mindless chordates! All foetal stages, now ranked more important than adult women. Look at the cow! It's in the paddock with its best friends and its babies. Hey pro-lifers, let's fuckin kill it ...

Re: Free Will-debate settled

Kudos to the OP for mentioning chaos. Free will pertains to the chaotic aspect of reality (and thus, our natures). It's real but also ridiculously overrated and layered with ***God's Special Magic Dust***. It's not complicated. Rocks don't have much freedom. They are very orderly. We are less order...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

As someone once said: 'Your right to swing your fists ends at my nose'. In the same vein.. your right to interact with the world ends at my body. Perfect. "Right-to-lifers" never cared about saving lives. You don't see them protesting against war, teen suicide, cuts to health budgets and cycles of ...

Re: Einstein on the train

You are babbling, Age. I had to scroll down a fair way to find anything with enough content to prompt a reply. As I have POINTED OUT ALREADY because of 'optical illusions' 'that' what is OBSERVED may be just NOT the actual and real Truth of things. You capitalised the wrong words, rendering the sent...

Re: Einstein on the train

I then have two options - to learn or remain ignorant. If that is all you have, then so be it. If you do not want to remain ignorant, then apparently you will just have to hope, as well as put a lot of faith into, that what you are being "taught" and are "learning" is actually true, right, and/or c...

Re: Einstein on the train

The thing is, the observations are not assumed true - they are very thoroughly checked. Firstly by the people who originally make the observation, because it is career death if you make a bold claim which then turns out to be bogus. I have to say that it drives me insane how many people assume that...

If I was American I would be at much more risk from extremeist, gun-loving hate-filled countrymen than illegal economic migrants crossing the borders.
