Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

you stupid twat! Ad hominem and very possibly off topic. :D Nope. It's not an ad hominem at all. It was a pure insult. Calling a person a 'twat' is not an ad hominem. AS actually implied an Ad hom , in that she implied that my argument was false because she thinks that people who display PC qualiti...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

My point is that the language is called English. Americans seem to think they have a separate language. It doesn't even qualify as a dialect. One might as well say Jazz and Blues aren't music. The rules of music don't change just because someone comes up with a new style. The new style exists 'beca...

Bah. Reduction of wages is a result of large unemployment; the labour expense is a highly elastic demand-price function. In economic terms. And the large unemployment is the result of a catastrophically large overproduction crisis, yes, a Marxian one.

Re: The Case For Panpsychism

My argument in favour of pan-reactivity was clearly providing the reasoning for my rejection of panpsychism. There is no other logical way to interpret my post. Then we agree that pan-reactive could be applied to a completely non conscious world, cold, hard, with utterly deterministic and indiffere...

The former were probably eaten but the latter have had loads of funerals.
I once attended a guinea pig's burial.
Westerners are so wasteful.
Apparently guinea pigs are delicious.

Re: There ain't nobody in a body

Life and death are states of existence that make a distinction between consciousness and non consciousness So death is simply a transition from one to the other and in the grand scheme of things means nothing at all Death is not a state of existence. That is a complete contradiction. You cannot BE ...

Re: Legislating Human Decency

Civilisation anonymises people. I think there is a genuine urge to co-operate, share and contribute to the community that has evolved over a million years and more. But when societal numbers increased beyond a certain number that allowed predatory psychopaths to take advantage and slip between the c...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

I no longer read PauloL's posts and won't read this veghead's nonsense any longer either, but I am more or less forced to catch snatches of what they write when they are quoted in the posts of people I do read. Anyone who thinks American English is a pidgin language is so woefully ill-informed and ...

Welcome to the Church of Ouzo.
This idiot crawls out from under his rock to make me point for me.
I'm not sure if you need a psychiatrist or a schoolteacher.

Re: Is this proof that priests, preachers and imams are all perpetual liars?

Lumping the clergy of disparate religions into one is in itself a lie. The point is, that, if there is supposed to be ONE god, then their ought to be ONE religion, and ONE set of beliefs about god. Try and think this through for a few seconds. Welcome to the Church of Ouzo. This idiot crawls out fr...
