    Re: Are ODN "atheists" theophobiacs?

    But they won't try things they don't believe in to some level. They pray to God and not something else for a reason, and that reason is belief.
    So it stands as evidence that they deny a belief they...
  3. Re: Mind Trapped by - Police vs Citizens - Reaching for a gun?

    I think on the most practical level, if I got exactly what I ask for. All we are talking about is police changing their verbiage.
    In other words instead of saying "he reached for his waist, so I...

    I was talking about in your specific model. It does not address how it is a applied to the minority. Specifically in a non dogmatic way.

    What about when people don't agree. specifically the minority.

    Is that forwarded dogmatically?


    So then SM can't be enforced at all?


    the end result seems the same. Be it by democratic agreement by the majority onto the minority, or by dictatorship....

    Re: Secular Morality vs. Non-Secular Morality

    They were not Religious atrocities, they were "state" atrocities. Atrocities done in the name of the state, not in the name of a religion.

    It is defined as them thinking they are a gender that does not correspond with their actual gender.
    That is the definition of a break from reality. A man with a...

    Don't get hung up on the idea of sophistry. My argument is that it is based on faulty logic, and not based on science.
