Re: The Pandemic is over?

Unsupported: There is no scientific evidence supporting the claim that many people have preexisting immunity to COVID-19, nor is there evidence indicating that herd immunity has been achieved in the U.K. The scientist in the OP disagrees. The scientist in the OP does not provide effective support f...

Re: The Pandemic is over?

When you read without discoursing, the writer is communicating with you. I disagree. A writer may tell you much, but if you don't try to comprehend, or respond with what it is you have comprehended, then there is no communication. If you mean that communication can be one way, yes it may be but tha...

Re: The Problem of Evil

What do we mean by "evil"? Is it causing harm? Is it causing harm with intent to cause harm? Is it causing harm because you are indifferent to harm caused? Is it causing harm by mere accident even if you regret it later? Let's pick the simplest one to work with, causing harm from malice. Then what i...

Re: Propaganda Antidote

By “propaganda” I mean lies. Insufficient. There all kinds of lies. Propaganda is a very particular kind of communication package - not necessarily or exclusively lies - aimed at a specific audience for a specific purpose. https://www.britannica.com/topic/propaganda Before you can study a phenomeno...

Re: Who will swallow the Corona virus debt? The rich or the poor?

Who will swallow the Corona virus debt? The rich or the poor? Financial debt is illusory, and can be cancelled. Poverty is a condition imposed by governments through the tax system. Demonstrate this? In Australia the tax system leaves low income earners alone and draws tax from high income earners....

Re: the necessity of eugenics

That's racist. Excuse me? I was hinting at the fact that "Oh no you didn't!" is a an American black female/any color gay trope, but basically just speaking nonsense, same as you. Well, not everyone here is from the US. For folks outside the US "I don't believe you went there" or "Oh no, you didn't!...

Re: An argument against materialism

Materialism claims that consciousness is the result of process in matter. I'm a materialist. Only the material exists ontologically, but material includes everything that exists and has the nature it has independently of anyone's knowledge or consciousness of that existence, and therefore includes ...

Re: Social media and the reinforcement of the ego

It’s no real surprise, and I think big tech knew this, and even intentionally planned it. Just look at the product names of apples lineup: IPhone, IPod, IMac. The ‘I’ I believe is actually an intentional marketing too which was both a self fulfilling tool, which both predicted and reinforced with i...

Re: Social media and the reinforcement of the ego

Never mind. The “I” stands for “Internet”. https://blueballfixed.ytmnd.com/ You aren’t old enough to remember when VP Al Gore created the Information Highway which was later dubbed the Internet (lower case internet was used for LANs) by the Defense Department.
