Re: Does God Exist?

I understand the logic of your position, and it is unassailable. But my question in response is: If it's such a nonsensical statement...why click on this discussion in the forum? There's lots of forums set up around discussing well designed questions. The understanding here is that in saying that i...

Re: Religion: The Deuce

...the fact that anyone factually believes that a communion wafer is transubstantiated into the body of christ proves it. all of these things are testable... a belief in god also serves the purpose of removing wonder. anything existing (ANYTHING) is such a random improbability, yet all kinds of stu...

Re: Religion: The Deuce

On String Theory, oddly enough I saw this . Kinda Makes you wonder. It was interesting how the rebuttal to the question of whether Religion destroys wonder was sidestepped. Generalization about any topic tends to have the effect of painting an idea with the brush of generalization. Therefore if Rel...

Re: Religion: The Deuce

But how accurately can we test history? If i say large scale religion is the cause for most of histories atrocities i would find it difficult to do any kind of large scale tests on the subject, especially considering it would mean repeating such atrocities. It would be difficult to test that Einstei...

Re: Topfree Movement: Wanting to Have Ones Cake and Eat It T

As for the actual question: do women have the right to go topless and complain when guys stare? I think its phrased poorly because of course they have the right to free speech, its hard to debate that one. but does it make any sense to complain? No. obviously from the things women have said they un...

Re: Topfree Movement: Wanting to Have Ones Cake and Eat It T

No one seriously thinks that women walking around without tops will be a normal occurrence. It will pretty much always be unusual. Most males don't walk around without shirts (private businesses usually require shirts, even) and a lot of the things guys take off their shirt for (hard physical activ...

Re: Topfree Movement: Wanting to Have Ones Cake and Eat It T

Still, I feel that you guys are simplifying this too much. It wouldn't simply take a generation. Men can be topless. CAN, but you don't see guys walking around without a shirt on unless you're at the beach. If you're walking down the street in the winter and a guy is walking shirtless because he ca...

Re: Topfree Movement: Wanting to Have Ones Cake and Eat It T

ya people have very good points. if one women walked down a crowded street and she was the only topless person around then people would stare cause its out of the ordinary, this point was stated before so sorry for the repeat but if it was a lot more common then we would have to ignore it a lot more...

Re: Religion: The Deuce

i see no need for the fear of god to make us be better people. And by the same logic, there's no need for the lack of God to make us better people. thats my point. we can have all the good things religion offers without the actual need for religion itself. but with religion we get the same good thi...

Re: Religion: The Deuce

religious people seem to have this idea that you need religion to want to help your fellow man. what religion of all kinds tells us is to accept things without providing proper evidence. this can lead many places including being abused by the individuals spreading their teachings. if we all just thr...

Re: Morality in Watchmen

If your intent here is to be a dick, you're well on your way towards success. However, that should not be your intent. - Az rorscach may have acted immorally. but morals are subjective of course and as long as he saw what he was doing as right, then as far as i see it he was sticking to his morals....
