  1. Many armed persons were not acting in coordination with the protests, but were actually members of controversial right-wing groups. This issue was raised after Jimmy Dore was criticized for getting chummy with a "Boogaloo boy" on air. There is video of black protestors verbally accosting armed individuals who tried to join the protests.
  2. The implicit logic behind domination conservatism. (A) In a just society, people who don't deserve it are not stripped of their natural rights nor constitutional rights. (B) It's true--I'm patriotic. (C) I'm assuming it was probably your fault. (B+C) Authority figures will back me up and reinforce my assumptions. (B+C+BC) They're taking away your rights, not mine.
  3. The Oblongs theme song.... !?!? Mee three. I would leave that item blank too.
  4. And "Starlight" is playing as he signs the orders.
  5. I'm part of a Bantu sect that requires ritual consumption of the brains of dead relatives. The good old days. COVID-19 got nothing on Mad cow disease.
  6. I don't have a personality disorder. I'm not abnormal...
    Lexical theory. Factor analysis.

    Sorry =^i

  7. ** Karma confused with Dharma **Gandhi I am not Hindian. But any Christian who dismisses Gandhi is just a conservative. I wonder whether he is translated.
  8. One thing is for sure. It doesn't do it for you because you kept imagining that it would. Imagining your god exists is as pointless as conversion therapy for gays. I could say I'm open to something flexible like kharma, but even if I am honest I might as well be saying that I'm open to unicorns. I was reading Thich Nhat Hanh in middle school. He will let you be atheist; maybe Ghandi would too. But American Christian lobbyists are engaged in a vicious, passive-aggressive, sectarian, and exploitative campaign that will keep "Believe" signs hanging in your local supermarket. For what?
  9. "Panic" by The Smiths "Panic" by The Smiths is mine. Right hemisphere! Right hemisphere! No offense please.
  10. In any case, I didn't want to discuss religion but to discuss how discussion of religion could be useful, so I will end with some comments on the opening poster's content. Please note that I have virtually no philosophy studies. It is a hobby. Another advantage to this pragmatism or functionalism is the idea that a problem should be diagnosed before it is solved: If it isn't broke, don't fix it. I will elaborate this later. For now, the opening post repeatedly evoked my notion of precedent. [...] Acceptance of a hypothesis is of course like acceptance of any belief
  11. This is a slight diversion, but it will be interesting as a creative idea about how to stimulate this sort of thinking in other people. We already know that the process of neuronal death guides cognitive development. If we can tie this to God's existence, we might get some productive discussions about truth and reality. A pragmatistic understanding of knowledge that explains ideas as useful and functional---but ultimately subjective--tools in the interaction between the subject and his surroundings is not something that is easy to reconcile with the notion of consciousness without evolu
  12. Duck, duck, duck, duck, homodimer!!!! How many months until the vaccine can be approved for widespread use, again? We might already be immune by that time if they don't disseminate this information carefully.
  13. Re: Moontanman in What are You Listening to? To be fair, a pragmatic understanding of knowledge that explains ideas as useful and functional---but ultimately subjective--tools in the interaction between the subject and his surroundings is not something that is easy to reconcile with the notion of consciousness without evolution via natural selection. Natural selection among random variants, whether biological or cosmological, seems to be the only process by which functionality would emerge from randomness. If you assume that randomness comes first and that cognition must involve functio
  14. Sometimes I have to refresh myself. Diffusion of responsibility, or the bystander effect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdpdUbW8vbw It's kitty genovese, but it didn't embed.
  15. Haven't read, but Yay Guns is closed. Re: the hate speech problem. I've been mulling over and over the relationship between neuroticism (and mental health) and power, given that neurotic, "emotionally unstable" people enjoy less success while antagonistic people, with "callous unemotional" traits, enjoy as much success as anyone else. It would seem that unemotionality is favored over emotionality even though neurotic people score higher on measures of "emotional empathy." To be fair, honesty-humility, the sixth factor of personality which splinters off from agreeableness, is probably t
