    Roe v Wade

    This is just sort of what LZ does, when the going gets tough.... he bails.

    Roe v Wade

    Why? "killing unborn BABIES" isn't what early term abortions are, and this thread is about abortions. It's not about "murdering children for no reason" or "savagely stabbing innocent beings" or any other such crap the pro-life brigade usually like to spin it as. If you want to start a thread...

    Roe v Wade

    That's not an argument, of any sort, it's not even a natural language argument. It's a question, and it's also a strawman. Early term abortions are not "killing unborn babies". Do you have any other questions?

    Roe v Wade

    There's like a million different arguments for why abortion not only is (at least where I live), but needs to be legal. There's another million about the morality aspect. Pro-life arguments are pretty easy to refute if you spend more than 17 seconds thinking about the topic.

    Dr. William Lane Craig

    I don't think so, but I already know what WLC said. The same things he always says. Seen one, seen 'em all :)

    Dunning-Kruger Effect Might Not Be Real

    I've skimmed the article, I'll read it in more depth later if needed but for the time being - I understand the DK effect to be a set of behaviours and/or character traits exhibited by, basically narcissists. Narcissism is a diagnosable condition, with (I believe) nine criteria, not all of...

    The Oscars - a different ethical view, a different media angle

    I also don't care about your assertion that I'm trivialising anything. And I can't possibly put into words how little I care avbout how "shocked" you are. If you find this "shocking" - this forum isn't a place you'll want to be. Your preferences don't matter, never have, never will. You're more...

    The Oscars - a different ethical view, a different media angle

    This isn't intended as a dig, but I think I need to re-write the tutorial on how to use this forum, from quotation stacks to emphasis, from links to colours. I have addressed your pertinent points, the most significant in this discussion. If you want to point out something important which I...

    The Oscars - a different ethical view, a different media angle

    I appreciate the correction, but that is nonetheless what your post actually implies, even if down to a typo (the inclusion of the word 'not' - you could have edited it) Well, he's a comedian, having watched the clip it quite clearly WAS a joke, even if Smith's wife was offended by it. This...

    The Oscars - a different ethical view, a different media angle

    I think this may be somewhere near the root of the problem. I've spoken to people who think there is such a thing as "verbal violence" - words are not violence of any sort, in any context no matter how upsetting the listener/recipient may find them. Hence the old saying, sticks and stones will...

    The Oscars - a different ethical view, a different media angle

    I don't particularly care that someone slapped someone else, this happens every day and I have very little patience for celebrities, even the ones I quite like in general. However, to the point - Comedy is supposed to be funny - by definition. With this in mind, there will ALWAYS be some...

    @Av8torbob Bob? Bob! What happened? What happened to your profile picture? Don't leave us, Bob. Stay! Did you get a new haircut or something? Bob! Don't go!

    Origin of Life

    I float the motion that nobody responds to our newest Bob here until he starts answering questions. And by that I mean by actually answering the questions that have been asked of him, as opposed to simply writing some words and hitting the post reply button. It's not like anyone reading this...

    Origin of Life

    But you don't have anything to say, Bob. That's the issue. Yes, you do post words, the problem is they're devoid of content. If you have something substantive to say, we're quite happy to hear it. Aside from your OP (as if that wasn't revealing enough) your main undoing was when you stated you...

    Bit like one of those court bailiffs you see on TV programmes isn't it? PAY UP OR ELSE! Well I ain't got it, never had it so you ain't gettin it! Nerr!

    No answers to any of the questions? Of course you haven't. Why would you? How could you? You don't have them so I will concede it's unfair of me to request that which you don't possess.
