    What's Better Adulthood or Childhood?

    in General Discussion on 06 January 2020

    This is a cop out, maybe, but the answer is: it depends. Childhood can be amazing... but it can also be crushing. If you're in the wrong circumstances, with the wrong family, there's really nowhere to turn. You just have to wait and hope you survive (both physically and mentally/emotionally). In adulthood, if you're in the wrong circumstances you can work to change them (no matter how...

    Research on first and favorite Final Fantasy Game

    My first Final Fantasy was the first Final Fantasy. It is far from my favorite, though it does have a special place in my heart... My favorite today probably remains FFX. ...

    Razer Drops Streamer for Calling Men Trash, Says It's 'Extremism'

    in Politics Discussion on 30 June 2019

    Otter said: I make no unwarranted accusations. Harping on about double standards without care of cause & effect is nonsensical. Its like saying a business that only employees disabled people is discrimination and should be treated the same as a business which only employs white people. Disregarding gender, race etc in these discussions is frankly daft. Sorry if my tone...

    Razer Drops Streamer for Calling Men Trash, Says It's 'Extremism'

    in Politics Discussion on 29 June 2019

    Otter said: donathos said: "Contextual awareness" here means that you argue for double standards. But there is another way to approach moral reasoning, which is to hold individuals to the same ethical standard without respect to their gender, race, etc. Of course, so charge children for crimes the same as we do adults. Don't distinguish between manslaughter and murder....

    Razer Drops Streamer for Calling Men Trash, Says It's 'Extremism'

    in Politics Discussion on 28 June 2019

    Otter said: Lol, this site remains a cesspits when it comes to opinions.You think Razor would have a bit of solidarity with all the additional shit a female gamers goes through when in the spotlight and give her a slap on the wrist whilst also supporting her. Comparing that to extremism is dense, as if she means it literally to all men and as if there's a president for this kind of comment...

    Humans Suck -_-

    in General Discussion on 29 January 2019

    Animals kill other animals, in competition for food, shelter, etc. (and sometimes even for sport); human beings have been pretty good by this measure, pretty successful, though not nearly so successful as some others (like bacteria). Why should we feel any particular guilt for acting according to our biology and nature? It's understandable why we sometimes extend our concern to members outside...

    Circumcision - Yes or No?

    in General Discussion on 27 January 2019

    Male circumcision was popularized in the US in large part in an effort to reduce male sexual pleasure and curb masturbation. It is a relic and symptom of our Puritan heritage....

    Why did Jesus Christ sacrifice his self for you?

Way to show respect! :) I just want to touch on this briefly, because respect is an important issue to me. People, generally, are worthy of respect, until they prove otherwise -- which is not an...

    Why did Jesus Christ sacrifice his self for you?

    0D0 said: My elliptical construction is simple: it means that I'd be discussing to bring the historical truth about all the things that the Church is accused without fault. Maybe not you, but the majority would call me the guy "defending the Church, so he might be a fool or evil". Well, in fairness, you might be a fool or evil. Or I might be. We neither of us knows each other all...

    in General Discussion on 17 January 2019

    0D0 said: You can see how enormous the task of discussing this matter would be to me when I don't get a pass even when I use a simple elliptical construction. You don't get a pass because it is important that you approach this, not from the perspective of "defending the Church," but valuing the truth of the matter, regardless of what that means for the Church. I know, this is...

    0D0 said: I'm not into trying to prove that God exists in this thread, but saying that many take science like it's the Word of Truth, exactly like Christians take Jesus word like Word of Truth. You're right that there are people who misunderstand or abuse science. The "Word of Truth" approach you mention, where people invest themselves into some belief and then close themselves...

    drkohler said: Whether Jesus actually existed at all is open to debate. A luxury we actually have in the Christian world. Try that with Mohammed and the Quran in the Islamic world..... A luxury we have in the western world. It has nothing to do with Christianity; when Christianity had power in the west the same way Islam currently has in the middle east, Christianity was just as...

    Should Hollywood stop blackwashing characters?

    The Nintendo Switch is generation...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 December 2018

    The idea of a Generation has to do with grouping systems together, for the purpose of comparison. With taxonomy. The mistake everyone in this debate makes is to believe that there are some sort of objective criteria -- that we can simply state the facts and determine where Switch belongs. We can't. It is a mostly arbitrary designation. Analysts now can look at the Switch and say, "Well, the...

    What's the point in having children?

    in General Discussion on 18 December 2018

    I don't know if this is the whole reason -- or if this speaks for anybody else -- but my reason for having a child was, in part, philosophical. So far as I can tell, I have this one life. And it seems to me that fatherhood has been a large part of the human experience since forever (and figures to continue to be, going forward). I wanted to have that experience, as a means of fully investigating...
