Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

Prayer rooms? You mean a room where some kids are allowed to store little bits of carpet? That's the slipper slope to the reinstatement of slavery is it? No. But it's a clear violation of the separation of 'church' and state, so as a constitutionalist, it ought to concern you. Or not, if you're not...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

...you are being too shifty to say which Sharia things you could envisage actually being made into any form of law in America. Not at all. You can pick a dozen...the outlawing of criticism of Islam (already happening in Canada), the seeking of special status for Islam (the only religion with prayer...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

The second is not well worded and the world of firearms has changed a lot since it was written and weaponry consisted of flintlocks and canons. There's a great deal of scope both to interpret it and for a majority of Americans to want it rethought given how much danger it subjects them to. But what...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

I don't think you will find much sympathy in the Supreme Court for the view that the constitution is non-binding in any way. I would hope not. But then, how has gun ownership become at all controversial, if the founding documents are so highly secured? And, for that matter, how has the idea of stat...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

...it's unconstitutional under at least the 5th and 14th in the USA, and similar constitutional laws apply in all western democracies. Of course it's unconstitutional, and contrary to the Bill of Rights too. But not everybody knows the role of the foundational documents the same way. Some see them ...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

Here's as fair a solution as one could possibly find. It's 100% guaranteed non-racist, congenial to all well-meaning Muslims, and devoid of secret motives. Ban Sharia Law. Now, who wouldn't happily get on board with that? Duh, it's unconstitutional under at least the 5th and 14th in the USA, and si...

Re: make of this what you will

Provide full quotes with context... I did, earlier. Remember the "nasty" quotation? Definitely ad hom. I'm bored. Bye. Yeah, I already explained why that isn't ad hominem. So, sorry that is one more thing that you can't get a handle on. When I have a little more time, I guess it has become necessar...

Re: make of this what you will

That's what the ad hominem fallacy means. It means, "No insults: just debate ideas on their own merit." That's how it has to be. You have got that absolutely wrong. You genuinely don't understand the concept of ad hominem in any useful way. You'd best go reread the definition, if you still suppose ...

Re: make of this what you will

You can't tell the difference between an ad hominem argument and an insultingly accurate observation. No, insults are ALL ad hominem, whether they are accurate or not. If D. didn't stand for "Daschund," but for "the Devil" or for "'Dolph Hitler," that would still count for zero in the question of w...

Re: make of this what you will

What are you on about? I didn't present an ad hominem. It's just a fact that you have used the accusation of ad hominem incorrectly more than once recently. So...you DIDN'T write the following line? I said the thread was racist and nasty, it being created by a nasty racist This is ad hominem , beca...

Re: make of this what you will

You throw accusations of ad hominem around so carelessly. Projection. When you start a sentence with "you," I've noted the next thing you're going to do is float an insult. What are you on about? I didn't present an ad hominem. It's just a fact that you have used the accusation of ad hominem incorr...

Re: make of this what you will

Not many folks can rip off two fallacies in one line. Congratulations. :D it is entirely legitimate to describe you and Daschund as allies in this matter. Irrelevant. Even if it were so, that D. and I were on exactly the same page in one or another argument, it would not follow logically that eithe...

Re: make of this what you will

Your ally in this matter, Daschund,... This twofold fallacy is called "poisoning the well," and "the genetic fallacy." It tries to associate the origin (the "genetics") of a person's argument with someone/something the critic tries to make unsavoury, so as to bias the judgment ("poison" it). Not ma...

Re: Interjection!

The book of Numbers predated the Prophets. The other texts that Averroes quoted can be interpreted literally or according the spirit of them. For instance " hate" your nearest and dearest is to be interpreted by Jesus recommending people think of the greater good than that of the family or tribe. T...

Re: make of this what you will

Movie Two Here's another (very short) "movie." But be warned: it's obviously sponsored by a "racist" Jew, and it stars a "racist" Pakistani, talking about the murder of a "racist" liberal Muslim. Boy, there are a lot of "racists" around. :wink: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPG4H3XUX1Q P.S. -- Fl...
