Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

I think DNA make our morality Can you explain that? I'll try my best. How does a sequence in DNA issue in particular moral determinations? DNA codes for physical and emotional, and maybe even rational thought (or "that seems rational" - to me, you, but maybe not an Alien or whale - lol, I'm not a w...

which is why religion will be abolished.

it already has been for about a century now.

our religion now is consumerism (buy buy buy!) and worship of technology (our savior, to fix the planet - electric cars/etc)

Re: gaffo

This the the biggest pillar of Libertarians - respect and knowledge of the US and State Constitutions, respect for the Rule of Law, Court rulings...Civil War... Interesting. But I don't see Libertarianism as a specifically American phenomenon. It may have its American variants, to be sure; but it's...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

i do not care about the issue - i personally view it as irrelivant, and those that champion freewill as egostisical, I confess I puzzled over this remark. That's why I did not at first reply to it: I couldn't think of exactly how it could be meant, or how I could appropriately respond to that state...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

ok, i'm listening, why don't you think there is a general universal morality underneath cultural mores, which seem "immoral" to the West. (and vise versa WRT to Easterns view of Westerners). Well, you yourself write... I grant you there are "immoral" practices in other cultures, female circumscism,...

Re: gaffo

Well, I'm curious, then. As a Liberal-Libertarian, how do you reconcile the Liberal advocacy of means requiring big governments and large-scale government intervention with the Libertarian cardinal values of individual liberties and of keeping government as small as practical? first off - are you C...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

in otherwords i think nearly all of us "believe" in the same thing! Have you travelled much? In particular, have you ever travelled and lived outside of the developed West? Cuz I have. I've travelled to Mexico, Canada, England, Scottland and Wales. so if you include Mexico as part of the west, then...

Re: The USA is still the greatest country in the world.

getting a little off track here but while we are at it. though US is an enabler - via drones and arms to the Suadis - it is folly to blame America for the Yemeni war. fact is the Sunni president Sala left the country 5+? years ago when the 80-percent Shia had enough of him, since that time the Hooth...

Re: The USA is still the greatest country in the world.

Your country is so full of crap. Mine? Not mine. I wouldn't mind, though. However, apparently you're pretty much alone in your opinion. For every person who claims they can't stand the U.S., there are a thousand trying to get in. More likely than not that's because your country has fucked up their ...
