 Forum: Politics, Philosophy, and Religion   Topic: Do you think overpopulation is a problem and what is your so

Overpopulation, in my opinion, IS a problem because it is totally out of control. And people who actively decide NOT to have children still get a lot of criticism. :? I think we need better education on this. We shouldn't tell some people they shouldn't have children and tell others that they HAVE ...

I could write with both hands, however it is easier to mirror write with my left hand than to write with it in the same direction as if I were using the other, so I have become more used to using my right hand. Yet, I could also write rather fluently with my left hand in the correct direction if man...

If the judge condoned this under the First Amendment's protection of religious freedom, then his interpretation of it is seriously flawed. I'm sure in the past there have been rulings that even if it was done as a religious practice, any act of violence outside of self-defense (and by that I mean k...

This commenter nails it. This is akin to the old rulings regarding rape. It is the old "she was asking for it dressed so provocatively, so she had it coming. Case dismissed." This. Sickens. Me. Apparently, the _________ who defended the strangler of free speech was a Republican. I wonder why that _...

The FBI did not even try to keep legally uploaded files and just destroyed the whole site? As abysmal as this is, there is nothing surprising. Some banks have gotten away with illegally accessing their clients' medical files and yet only average citizens are attacked by this government that increasi...

I cannot even summarize my symptoms because they just change with circumstances. Also, the more I think about cognitive profiles the more confused I am, specifically when I try to summarize them in abstract ways like telling the difference between the two hemispheres or the difference between thinki...

Considering that my relatives live close to a diverse suburb, in which all their errands and food shopping are done, and that what I saw in that place does not look like progress, my opinion is that immigration from Africa and the Middle East has been, to say the least, a mistake for multiple reason...

America will resist this totalitarianism (even if it is destroying freedom for different ends and with other pretexts), yet other occidental postdemocracies will not. Some of the U.N. resolutions are beneficial, like the conventions pertaining to peacekeeping, yet this entity is being stolen by vari...

Do you watch Russia Today? As long as you pretty much totally ignore any commentary about Russia on there, it's a good channel. Features a lot of coverage of speeches anti-EU politicians make, and generally covers a lot of subjects that are unpalatable to the BBC, like the anti-AGW argument, libert...

I do not think "islamophobes" share anything in common with anti-Semites. Actually a lot of European anti-Semites seem to admire the Islamic ideology. However there are several "islamophobic" politicians outside of America who are also antisemitic. Even some of them who are not overt fascists have f...

Most likely this incompetent judge also believes that any caution about immigration is racist. This is the sort of dysfunctionalism the British and Europeans are now stuck with forever.

Yet, I am more worried about manipulative leaders than dumb, misguided ones who could easily be thwarted.

We may run into difficulties with interpreting other perspectives, yet it is offensive to assume that people with our cognitive profiles can only be egocentric without having a coherent set of views, interests, tastes, and preferences that do not take into account others. I am not sure about other s...

Drawing is fun, even though I am not skilled enough at it to draw at the college level. What really interests me is analyzing the thickness and direction of brush strokes and the lines made from pens on paintings and sketches. It shows how outlines and shadows are created and how outlines are filled...

While the tea party is sometimes difficult to respect, they, at least, did not so consistently defile their cause. These occupiers are nothing short of delinquents, arsonists, pillagers, and demented exibitionists. This circus is a discouraging sight for utopians since we must finally come to the ad...
