Re: Deleted Thread?

I had a thread too, that was deleted, it was about Trump. I'd like to know why, if I broke any rules, please let me know so I won't be repeating it. Yeah, I remembered that one. And, I just spent some time composing a reply to it. Imagine my wandering bafflement when I went a posting. It isn't hard...

Re: Is hate good? Should we allow the censorship of hate speech?

To make enemies his friends, is so obvious it should call for a martial court against Trump. Ronald Regan began glasnost and it was seen as a good anti-cold war policy. What do you see wrong in making friends with Russia and China? What is wrong in making friends with your enemy? Regards DL Because...

Re: If God is a fairytale...

Why is such a belief considered a henious crime in many western countries? I'm not sure I understand the question. Which countries? How is belief treated as a crime, let alone a heinous one? Welfare, national health insurance, free public education, old age pension and protection of immigrants is a...

Re: Is hate good? Should we allow the censorship of hate speech?

I found out I have Viking blood in me not too long ago. A bit of useless information for you. What do you think the Danes would say of Trump and his racist comments? Would you like him as your head of state? Regards DL I hope not. Danish People's Party would probably like him (Trump). They are amon...

Re: Is hate good? Should we allow the censorship of hate speech?

Other laws/regulations in Denmark exists to suppress free speech, but the hate speech law is not the reason. I found out I have Viking blood in me not too long ago.

Re: The Contradiction of the Three Laws of Logic

The failure of the three laws of logic. The three laws are as follows: The law of identity: P is P. The law of noncontradiction: P is not non-P. The law of the excluded middle: Either P or non-P. The law of the excluded middle fails to take into account that it mediates the Law of Identity and the ...

Re: Is science being divided?

To answer the questions of QuantumT: 1. Science is not being divided. While there are competing theories of the physical world, they all share the same goal of finding out what reality is made of, and more importantly, scientists are willing to give up their own theories if evidence is lacking or ev...

Re: Is hate good? Should we allow the censorship of hate speech?

Do you really think bullshit 'hate-speech' laws would have stopped Hitler or Stalin? :lol: Stalin was a huge fan of 'hate-speech' laws. Shouldn't that be a clue?? 'Hate-speech' laws are designed to control ordinary people and destroy free speech. It was already illegal to incite others to murder an...

Re: Is hate good? Should we allow the censorship of hate speech?

Humans are like sheep. They follow the herd. Hate-speech can (and will) make some people follow the speaker. When the group is large enough, they can intimidate the out-groups and cause them to follow the group. We've seen this countless times. In Turkey in recent years, in Russia, China, North Kore...

If God is a fairytale...

Even if God and the Bible, especially The New Testament is all just a fairytale, does it even matter? If God is not physical, if God is just a made-up fairytale, does it even matter in the long run? After all, God "the fairytale" did have a huge impact in people's lifes. Humans can endure a lot of s...

Re: Would nature favour beauty? If so, can we define it?

Congratulations with your first "Original Post" or "Thread" :wink: Interesting questions indeed! I see some issues with symmetry in the human mind. If you read a book, and the author repeats the same adjectives, it seems annoying or even amateurish. Same goes for song lyrics. Rimes are good, but re...

Would nature favour beauty? If so, can we define it?

Beautiful art/music is said to be subjective. I disagree on that, because an individual's subjective opinion is based on the mind, which is part of the body, which is nature and hence must adhere to natural principles. So what are these natural principles? I'm not talking about evolution, but someth...

Re: Hi everyone!

1. Yes and for as long as you like as long as its your post. 2. You can deleted it yourself if no-one has replied to it but if they have you'd have to ask me or the other mod but we're pretty loathe to do such things as we think you should think before you write. Of course you could just edit it ba...

Hi everyone!

I've been watching this discussion board a little, and now I finally decided I'd like to be part of it. Some questions though, before I join any discussions: 1. Can I edit posts? For how long? 2. If I "accidentally" write anything "inappropriate" and regret, can I ask it to be deleted? 3. What is da...
