  1. I'm not a scientist so I depend on what the...

    I'm not a scientist so I depend on what the 'experts' tell me.

    What bothers me are those non-scientists that tell me that this is an existential crisis, but are unwilling to do more than token...
  2. The advantage of a book, of course, is that...

    The advantage of a book, of course, is that within your own mind you get to cast and direct, create the sets and do the 'cinematography.' Your adaptation is perfect, at least for you.

    This is why...
  3. Either the future of the planet is important or...

    Either the future of the planet is important or it’s not. Wouldn't you give up delicacies like coffee and tea, chocolate, and beef from foreign countries to make a difference? I also see no reason to...
  4. What I meant, and perhaps expressed badly, was...

    What I meant, and perhaps expressed badly, was that if you want to limit ecological damage, don't eat chocolate, or any other food not available locally. Is that a hardship? Well, it's for the planet...
  5. Good article, but I didn't see anything about...

    Good article, but I didn't see anything about eating 'locally' to avoid the ecological impacts of transportation from tropical plantations. While it would be an imposition to eschew chocolate,...
  6. As a German, why do you insist on telling...

    As a German, why do you insist on telling Americans what the official American term for 'white' people is or how 'regular people' refer to the subject? I promise you, I'm not going to tell you what...

    Ailchu,

    Where do you get this? It seems you’re just making this up. Site some sources.
  8. When I was a youngster I was taught that race did...

    When I was a youngster I was taught that race did not exist as a scientific concept. That was the liberal/progressive viewpoint as well. What changed?
  9. I've never used the site so I don't know, but is...

    I've never used the site so I don't know, but is Quora a survey of the people of the region, or just people sharing their opinions? That is, how do we know it's representative or if the views are of...
  10. I don't know, it could be, but it's not my lived...

    I don't know, it could be, but it's not my lived experience. And, I have little faith in the artistic license of movies.
  11. Maciamo, I guess you did mean that you were...

    Maciamo,

    I guess you did mean that you were literally afraid to visit a Bible Belt state. But, like Angela, I think you are describing a situation that simply does not exist. Fundamentalists do...
  12. I wouldn't link those two stats and, personally,...

    I wouldn't link those two stats and, personally, I’ve never heard of a rabid hatred of atheists leading to violence. Take a look at Kentucky and West Virginia. Both high in religiosity and safety....
  13. You would be afraid to visit these states because...

    You would be afraid to visit these states because they believe in a god? I'm an atheist and that sounds pretty extreme to me. I knew a man who was a Mormon, a religion I think to be preposterous, but...
  14. I’ve visited Singapore several times; beautiful...

    I’ve visited Singapore several times; beautiful city, very nice people. However, when it’s hot, it’s wicked hot.
  15. Poll: I had a professor once who couldn't remember to...

    I had a professor once who couldn't remember to put the same color socks on both feet. He was pretty smart though . . . in his own field.

    Well heck, I think I was happier as a Baron than as a Junior . . . but I must admit, as an old guy, I wouldn't mind being Regular. That was what you meant, wasn't it?

    I think the interesting take-away from the cited article is the extent to which the 'experts' views on cultural vs. demic transmission are so mutable, or rather, that they are based on nothing more...
  18. Poll: In every time and in every place you will have...

    In every time and in every place you will have the tendency for trouble when groups, like the police or the military, are given peculiar power. They may never misuse that power, but the potential is...

    When I was a young lad I got paddled by my parents when I deserved it . . . and even at the time I knew that I had deserved it. Despite this, or because of it, I like to think that I grew up to be a...

    Somebody said that it's not the job of police to defend the people against criminals, it's to defend the criminals from the people. The people, in righteous anger, will become vigilantes if they have...

    Well, there's something I can agree with completely.
  23. Poll: I suspect you don't wonder.

    I suspect you don't wonder.
  24. Jeez, you having a bad day or something?

    Jeez, you having a bad day or something?

    I'm just a little uncomfortable with that! Maybe I'm missing something, but the people of England didn't know what their genetic makeup was. They made the decisions they made over the generations...
