Re: Impact of male god on human genders

It may be that some "religions" evolved into existence. But it may be that some don't. moat do. Perhaps. But if not all do, then it's a problem for any theory that depends on all religions having an "evolutionary" pattern. Some won't. Christianity from Judaism Well, you really could argue that Chri...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

fair point. you affirm good individuals acting morally in spite of thier culture/religion. That's not quite my point. It's a possible point, but not the right one here. The point is this: ideologies incline people to move toward certain kinds of actions, and away from others. Some people do not tak...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

non-secuitor ther nature was difined prior. assholes by 20. Maybe, G. But this seems to be your answer to everything an Atheist dictator can possibly do:" it wasn't his Atheism, he was an a-hole." You use it on every occasion in your message. However, the same excuse works for everything. It wasn't...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Just so, you've got to look beyond the individuals trying to practice the ideology, and ask what the ideology itself rationalizes. fair point. you affirm good individuals acting morally in spite of thier culture/religion. That's not quite my point. It's a possible point, but not the right one here....

Whilst I agree that Islam is violent, it is less so than Judaism,
agreed, both faiths are violent (and identical theologically).
Wow. Couldn't be more wrong, and evidently, verifiably so. Amazing.

Christopher Hitchens... I know you are clearly a person of limited life experience, but just take the trouble to listen through to his offering. Oh, no. I know Hitchens. I've heard everything he's got to say. He knows he was wrong now. I wonder if you really know him, though. This will help you kno...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

ROLF Heh. :D Not much of an answer. Well, put it this way. Here's two case scenarios: 1. Your neighbour announces that he has had a religious revival, and has committed himself to become as much like Jesus Christ as he possibly can. 2. Your neighbour announces to you that he has had a religious rev...

Re: This is True Conservatism

(And) tragically, the operation of both of these cognitive domains are predominantly determined by innate genetic factors, not by environmental factors. This, at least, is what the science is (increasingly) saying is the case. Supposing your research tells you the truth, your conclusions are still ...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Your thinking in the above case is too shallow and narrow. You need to break down and analyze the issue critically in their various components and perspectives. It's nowhere near that complex, LV. You're "gilding the lily," adding ornamentation where there is no necessity. It's this simple: a "Chri...

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

When I said the universe doesn't "owe" us anything, I mean that in an indifferent universe, one would have no justification of complaining of any lot in life. Only a universe devoid of life, consciousness, and human minds is indifferent. Actually, it's only different in what sorts of phenomena are ...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Luther the father of a massive branch of christianity was a scurrlious antisemite. Servetus who created hos own brand of protestantism murdered for Jesus. Popes, bishops, and all luminaries of the church were evil, yet you tell me they were not christians. You mean, "Jesus Christ tells me they were...

...yet you say "No TRUE Christian" would do that so they can't be Christians. No, I didn't say it. If only I said it, what would it matter? No less a person that Jesus Christ Himself insisted that's the way it was. If you think you know better what a "Christian" is than does Christ Himself, let's s...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Look up "No True Scotsman Fallacy". I know what it is. But it's not relevant here. It's not even always relevant to Scotsmen. For example, it is true to say, "No true Scotsman fails to be associated with Scotland in some way." It's also true to say, "No true Scotsman is a woman." When the criterion...

So what do you think is the reason for the strong correlation between blacks and homicide in the US. Why do they continue to blow each other away with guns at such a staggering rate relative to whites? What do you think is the reason for this black bloodbath, old sport ? Black people are more often...
