Re: Eye for an eye...spine for a spine?

Under any modern moral system, I would argue that surgically damaging a man's spine - for any reason I can think of - is a Bad Thing (TM) If damaging a man's spine is not bad, then there is no reason to punish the original offender. If damaging a man's spine is bad, then whether or not the punishme...

Re: Women of the Daily Show speak

If your system doesn't allow you to threat men and women the same way and not be sexist there's something very wrong with it. Not necessarily. Treating men and women the same way can be equivalent to sitting there and doing nothing about a very obvious problem in front of you. As such, it is not a ...

Re: Israel to implement "golden rule" for organ donations

It's not a double standard. It's one thing to not want to give your organs away. It's another thing to accept one from someone who already gave it. The only offense might be that you're supporting the practice, but at least in Judasim, the laws of Judaism apply to Jews and not to anyone else (and t...

Re: Israel to implement "golden rule" for organ donations

I will be frank. If your religion forbids you to donate your organs but allows you to have organs transplanted which come from donors then I consider that stupid. If a rule is important then you shouldn't take actions which require others to break the rule. (And respecting the rules of religions... ...

Re: Bibles for Porn on college campus

the problem is that most of the time whatever justification people give for their actions is just bullshit. a flimsy pretence. religion happens to provide a very pretty facade for individual vice. i would recommend seeking out the exemplars for a religion and read what they have to say about it rat...

Re: Bibles for Porn on college campus

Even if they would deny that, no one really holds to every edict in the Bible anyway. =P But as long as people quote bible passages to support their positions, pointing out that there are bible passages which are problematic isn't useless. It turns the argument "The bible says so" to &quo...

Re: Bibles for Porn on college campus

Basically, by being dicks picking a fight, they undermine the argument that its religion that makes people dicks who pick fights. I would say the argument is more that religion causes it members to attacks people who aren't harming anyone. If you see it that way there is nothing hypocritical about ...

Re: Bibles for Porn on college campus

Meh I laughed but in the end it's just a roundabout to say insult the bible. I agree that the bible sucks but many people have said that much more eloquently and the only reason to say it with "bibles for porn" is to provoke (and I don't mean provoke thoughts). It's a bit childish and a wa...

Re: Terry Pratchett Pushes for Assisted Suicide

It doesn't? It's not like that's the only case were the law says the person can treat itself differently than others. First example property, I can destroy my computer screen and it's legal but I can't destroy the computer screen of one of the other 6 billion people. And I can get a piercing but if ...

Re: Google Drops "Islam is " Suggestion Censoring

Just to show that Google won't learn from their mistakes, "Jews are", "Christians are", and "Muslims are", are not auto-completed. Probably for their own good, I say. I wouldn't ban it, though. It seems they didn`t bother to block the german equivalent. Muslime sind (M...
