Eating relative to health.

Eating healthy is good, eating bad is evil. Eating bad every once in awhile is neutral.
Baloney! :lol:

Re: Good and Evil

Analogies are a subset of phenomenon, thus in a continuum of phenomenon one phenomenon (analogy) can be directed towards another phenomenon (analogy or non-analogy). You're completely opaque here. Just say what you mean. No passive-voice, make the verbs and nouns agree, and be specific. Maybe you w...

...real life and analogies have a common bond.
I know what you mean, Eodnhoj, but I just can’t think of anything that shares a bond. Could you help me out with a few examples?

How does one invent a quantity that stems across multiple symbols as having the same meaning?
By “stems across multiple symbols as having the same meaning” do you mean there would be multiple symbols that express the same quantity?

Re: Loyalty

Loyalty Modern terrorism and how to deal with it is centred on matters of loyalty. To the servile state loyalty is a central value and anyone who is perceived to be otherwise is likely to disappear. Anarchistic society requires minimal group or authoritarian loyalty, barely more than the avoidance ...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

I think the flu one is pointless, but that's not one of the childhood ones anyway. Only idiots are against vaccinations for polio, diptheria, tetanus, whooping cough. Those have no side effects. Let me guess, you are against fluoride in the water too? Those two things usually go hand in hand. As we...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

You don't have a right to use your own child as a weapon of germ warfare against children with compromised immune systems who rely on the herd immunity you are destroying. If you want to keep your children unvaccinated then you have to keep them apart, they can only go to places where they cannot c...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

That sounds like it would take a very long time, not to mention a considerable amount of commitment and effort. Oh yea! It absolutely doesn't scale. And doesn't pay itself forward. If you are going to stick it through, you must care deeply about the other person. And in the end it could still get y...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

Apparently, they were having trouble a year ago with measles spreading among non-vaccinated children . If too many people refuse to vaccinate their children and an epidemic arises, it could lead to increased health care costs and hospitals could become swamped with patients. All in all, a few peopl...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

I was vaccinated when I was a child as were all my classmates. I don't know of anyone who developed any serious complications from it. I certainly didn't. I'm not sure which is the bigger gamble, not vaccinating your child or vaccinating him or her, but I suppose you are right, if you don't want yo...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

I don’t trust the scientists who say the shots are safe. I bet if vaccine safety was crowd sourced it would be obvious that they’re wrong.

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

Your posts reveal sound reasoning, but which do you think has greater weight: sound reasoning or unreasonable fear? The latter. Which is why the former approach (arguing) doesn't work. You can't reason with emotion. First you have to establish trust/rapport and demonstrate yourself as reliable auth...
