Good example of an unanswerable question. There’s a false premise behind the question, basically that God allowing evil or sickness is unjust. You can’t assert that God is evil or nonexistent by imposing your own limited, biased perspective. It raises another question: How do you know that God’s pe...

Capitalism being allowed to be capitalism looks like Victorian England. Nowadays, most of the more well-known health and safety regs are for employees or are absolutely obvious s**t. Don't operate machinery when drunk, don't let kids open medicine bottles, don't leave plastic bags near toddlers. Yo...

Let me put it to you all this way. A. Do you want to pay for someone's welfare or SSDI? B. Do you want to pay for someone's incarceration? You're paying for their three hots and a cot through your tax dollars? Then, wouldn't it make more sense to again teach people how to fish? C. Would you rather ...

Question for you AngelRho. Do you believe that demons or evil spirits can influence people to have thoughts and feelings that are negative? And, can they put confusion into your head? I'm just wondering... Of course. But I also think that demons only have as much power over you as you give them. I’...

My religion isn’t. Rand’s views on individualism presuppose that babies don’t have an inherent right to be born. The mother was there first, which I DO agree with Rand on. I also believe that in the case of giving birth spelling certain death to the mother, she has every right as anyone else to def...

I disagree. Often the simplest solutions offered are the best ones. You do yourself no favors by making things more complicated than they have to be. In other words, if I'm a blind person don't be blind. This is ridiculous advice. You say don't make them more complex or don't over think. I f*****g ...

AngelRho Here is the thing. Conservatives give advice but usually their advice is extremely overly simplistic to the point of being nonsensical. I disagree. Often the simplest solutions offered are the best ones. You do yourself no favors by making things more complicated than they have to be. Exam...

It depends on who is saying it. Collectivists assume conservatives to be misogynists, or at least they do as a rhetorical device. To be a leftist and use the same language as a sexist person would is inconsistent with leftist values. When a collectivist specifically uses gendered language in refere...

Now that I think about it... So Rand was a traumatized woman, therefore she is irrational? That is such a patriarchal thing to say! I had no idea collectivism was so anti-women! I never said that she was 100% irrational. I said and I quote "And, how can you really and truthfully accept objecti...

AngelRho, here's the thing. You're going to say I'm commiting fallacies and I'm gonna say you're commiting these batch of fallacies. We will end up going back and forth and going nowhere. This is what happened when I debated a batch of conservatives a while back. I got nowhere with them and they go...

Your reply is based on straw man arguments and circular reasoning. What have I said that is based on straw man and circular reasoning? Pretty much everything. You misrepresent conservative and objectivist views...ESPECIALLY objectivist views, and you’re committed to a point of view that’s you’re cl...
