Re: Revelation 17 and 18.

Are you saying Carl Sagan was a Creationist? Shurely shome mishtake? What the fuck are you talking about, fool, you make about as much sense as Chaz, which is currently zero and falling! It's like a remedial English class in here sometimes, but just to make it easy for you... Chaz asked why a decen...

Re: Revelation 17 and 18.

What a great advocate and promoter you are for your God, Bob. What decent person could ever worship, support or believe in a God that would condemn such a gentle and intelligence man such as Carl Sagan to an eternity of torture? What the fuck are you even talking about? Anybody who believes in that...

Re: Teen Pregnancy

Would you consider your daughter going full term, delivering her child/your grandchild and then adopt the child out? Less drastic than out in the street, 15 and pregnant. she should have thought about that before getting knocked up, and i wouldn't regret my decision one bit,hypothetically speaking ...

Re: Music & Conspiracy

It's Eminem's song "Not Afraid" . I found these two top comments on the song's youtube video. Considering that you'll find posts on YouTube telling you that unless you repost a message 5 times you'll die so I'd take it all with a pinch of salt. I'm more inclined to accept that it's about his former...

Re: A direction to Evolution?

Some recent futurist writers have suggested that evolution is speeding up in an exponential manner. However, proposing a "speed up" implies that there must be some direction that the process is going. It might make more sense to talk of the rate of change, or frequency, increasing rather than speed...

Re: Misogyny

The worst offenders don't seem to be that young. Young guys tend to like women. I wasn't suggesting you throw them out, I was making the point that no one on here seems to call them out on it, male or female. It's not just this forum of course; it's a societal thing. Someone on here said we shouldn...

If you mean my "level" in philosophy, it's very low because this is my first year having social sciences so I don't know much about this.
I meant, is this for university/college or high school?

Re: Assisted suicide and John Locke

I found in this PDF found on google: http://www3.wooster.edu/polisci/IS/roscoe.pdf Page 4 fifth line. The line you're referring to: "John Locke directly states that people do not own their lives, they belong to God and therefore suicide is wrong in the same sense as stealing." Locke tends to fall b...

Re: Assisted suicide and John Locke

Where exactly is assisted suicide (euthanasia) legal? This information should be relatively easy to find on the web. At the very least try the relevant Wikipedia entry. And what are the main ideas of John Locke (searched for this on Google but did not really understand it) and his ideas about suici...

Re: alternatives to taxation

In a recent study, $44,000.00 was the average amount that was paid per cancer patient in Europe. The average life-span for these patients after getting cancer was 9.3 years. In the US, the average care was $70,000.00, but the average life span was 11.1 years, almost two years greater. So, the issue...

Re: all muslims are the same

Now that's either an entirely innocent question or it's a loaded question implying that they would probably feel differently if they were suffering in those circumstances. So, I think it's fairly easy to see why I would ask the question I did. although it remains a far jump to the question if i thi...
