    Re: Michael Brown Was A Strong-arm Robber

    You are twisting the wording of the poll results.



    I think the context of the Rasmussen poll you cite is about whether the violence springs from outside criminals attempting to provoke a...

    [/INDENT]

    The diagram shows 9 holes. We know there were 6 bullets. The notes on the diagram note that these were "entry, re-entry, and exit perforations." Not every bullet is going to have an exit...

    Re: Michael Brown Was A Strong-arm Robber

    So, you are making the claim that the majority of African-Americans are thugs or accept thuggish behavior?

    Re: We Need A Bloodbath

    I don't know. Why is Saudi Arabia any more representative? I'm currently not making any strong claims that capital punishment is or is not an effective means of preventing crime. You're the one that...

    This is hardly sufficient evidence. Two data points doesn't even begin to imply correlation, nevermind causation.

    Re: Michael Brown Was A Strong-arm Robber

    Yes. We do not have a clear understanding of what position Mike Brown's arms were in when the shots were fired into them.

    Re: We Need A Bloodbath

    Evensaul, do you actually have any logical arguments for expanding capital punishment or is this mostly an emotional appeal? You mention deterrence. Do you actually have any data that supports your...

    Re: Michael Brown Was A Strong-arm Robber

    According to multiple eyewitnesses, while Brown and the officer were struggling through the window of the police cruiser, a shot was fired. Brown then ran away from the vehicle. The officer pursued...

    Re: An End To Christian Privilege

    Do you realize you're speaking for me? I'm an atheist and I've been celebrating Christmas my entire life. It's also widely celebrated in parts of the world like Japan where the number of Christians...

    Re: An End To Christian Privilege

    I think it's absolutely true that Christians complaining about persecution is really just the fact that they are uncomfortable with losing their privilege.

    As for Christmas, there is as much...

    Re: Michael Brown Was A Strong-arm Robber

    It doesn't matter if Michael Brown was a thief or not. The police officer does not get to play judge, jury, and executioner. Last time I checked, we did not enforce the death penalty for stealing...
  12. Re: Obama Can't Stop Women and Children From Entering Illegally?

    That doesn't make any sense. People don't flee their country of residence to move to another country because they can. There is always an underlying reason. "Because we feel like we can get away with...
  13. Re: Obama Can't Stop Women and Children From Entering Illegally?

    All you're doing is moving the goal posts. First you start off blaming Obama for this problem, claiming that he's just letting folks walk in. When faced with information that he's now asking for...
  14. Re: Obama Can't Stop Women and Children From Entering Illegally?

    Obama has asked for $3.7 billion to handle the immigration issue, much of which is going to properly staff the immigrant courts and clear the backlog of child immigrant cases so that children can be...

    Re: My solution to gays.

    Why is your definition of marriage any more valid than their definition of marriage?

    Definitions arise from the shared collective consensus of what people believe a word should mean. If people...

    Re: My solution to gays.

    The idea that we need a solution to gays implies that there's a problem with gays.

    Which there isn't.



    It sounds like the argument you have against gay marriage here is purely a semantic...

    I tend to agree with the view that a big part of why this is is that the ways in which atheist parents and religious parents go about raising their children in accordance to their beliefs is...

    Re: ObamaCare is here to stay

    I think it's way too soon to presume that we'd be going single payer that quick. People will still be adjusting to the ACA for years. I think at best you'd be looking at a public option as the next...

    This doesn't present a problem for young earth creationists. They just claim that Neanderthals were just another type of human.

    Poll: Re: Which Embryo is human?

    We don't give things rights purely on the basis on genetic makeup. My skin flakes contain my genetic makeup but we don't give my skin flakes any rights. Nor would we give rights to detached limbs. We...
  22. Re: The Religious Right do not have ownership of the word 'marriage'

    If that's the case, then everything should be defined as civil unions under the law. Straight, gay, or otherwise.

    And then Christians shouldn't get in a stink if gays choose to marry under a...
  23. Re: On banning "the R word," or most other words, for that matter..

    Words themselves ultimately have no meaning. It's the intent and the context of who is saying the word or when it is used that ultimately defines whether a word is "good" or "bad". We have to...

    Re: Is war necessary for national defense?

    Whether or not revolution is inherently illegal is irrelevant. The American Revolution was illegal.

    It's all about whether or not the other party has the power to stop it.
  26. Faith: Re: Absolute Certitude is Inappropriate for Religious Claims

    Basically, what I'm trying to say, is how do you know "I think"? Doesn't the very premise "I think" require an "I am"?

    It's like "The Little Engine That Was"

    I think => I am => I think => I am...
  27. Faith: Re: Absolute Certitude is Inappropriate for Religious Claims

  30. Faith: Re: Absolute Certitude is Inappropriate for Religious Claims

    Well it wouldn't have any grounds. They would assign to it the same strength as assumptions like "I think, therefore I am" or "A = A". None of these statements are grounded in anything, rather these...
