Homo sapiens ssp. rationalis
you misunderstand evolution.
it doesnt follow any living beings intent
theres another word for that, and it may come to pass.
But not in my lifetime.
Some say that the propensity , if not compulsion, for superstitious behaviour will prevent Homo sapiens from becoming too dominant over other species.
Bit late for that dont you think unless you mean cockroaches, rats, crocodiles and snakes.
scientific rationality, has reached a dead end because while it is powerful it doesn’t really comport with human behavior.
Who on this green earth ever said that it is or had to? And if people just do whatever the fuck comes into their head, if this person is advocating that, then kiss this planet goodbye.
No rationality is not a good guide to behaviour, if your looking for guide try honesty with yourself first then others. Scruples, empathy, compassion instead of me first, making a "buck" ie loads of money to embellish/prettify your surrounding so your death can seem a distant event.
Ferchrissakes think deeply! Try silencing the endless chatter in your mind.
Buddha was right we create our own misery.
But the overall rate and nature of problematic use is a real showstopper.
Could stay up all night drinking and never feel drunk, never felt violent tho and never wanted to go out, was quite happy where I was especially if at home. And that was my experience with it, which is in the past now.
WWII both sides had their own variant, while I have heard hints of that no one has ever come out and said it.
I look forward to the next episode with the PM, I hope he doesnt go on too much. He goes off song rather too easily, and is just plain silly mostly. And He's the PM...go figure...
So the presidential protection bill will skyrocket then...Oh good
“the single most important voice in the alternative conservative media”
Is that a recommendation?
I could go with other adjectives, obnoxious, arseaholic, unreasoned.
Yes all derogatory cause these arsewipes seem to to see trumps victory as permission to rubbish anyone who disagrees with them, as confirmation that any thought they have must be the truth and facts dont matter, and to blame anyone who had an opposing view for being authors of their own downfall.
These pricks are using the suffering of others to promote themselves not alleviate the suffering, oh no...!
Talking for a living? oh fuck. Go meditate on a mountain top
Fidel Castro has died
And the procession of opinions start. Sad on both counts
As for that other "death" globalisation
Bernand Hickey has the best analysis I've read in a long time
What would the Roman Catholic Church do
Get the inquistors in, and torture the wrongly accused till they signed a piece of paper saying it was all their for not believing?
Or sell scraps of paper saying the purchaser is absolved of all fault and they will be at gods table, up the expensive end, supping Dom with the big guy and having a jolly fine time away from all the riff-raff?
Yeah yeah I know francis is in charge now... window dressing.
Its like that Fonterra brochure, bullshit comes in glossy A4 now and fakery is the new norm
What does the panel think?
Where's the good news?
Oh that's right there is none, unless you believe Fonterra is the answer
Which means suspending disbelief
So I'll just resume a holding pattern waiting for the shit to hit the industrial sized fan
As there doesnt seem to be a lot I can do about it.
