    You can bet if I did he'd have ME permanently blocked and there'd be NO question who'd get his vote in the foulest mouth on the board poll.:eusa_eh:

    The man is a fraud and a hypocrite who commercializes psychological suffering. Why anyone continues to take him seriously is beyond me.

    I'll say Phil. Beneath his professional pretensions, he remains a stupid redneck.

    Such elitist comments! Whatever works, nothing wrong with some positive stuff in a world that kills so many.


    I'm happy in spite of infinity. "Cosmology shows that we might well be living in an infinite universe that contains infinitely many happy and sad people. Given some assumptions, aggregative ethics implies that such a world contains an infinite amount of positive value and an infinite amount of negative value. But you can presumably do only a finite amount of good or bad. Since an infinite cardinal quantity is unchanged by the addition or subtraction of a finite quantity, it looks as though you can’t change the total value of the world. Aggregative consequentialism (and many other important ethical theories) are threatened by total paralysis. We explore a variety of potential cures, and discover that none works perfectly and all have serious side-effects. Is aggregative ethics doomed?" Nick Bostrom

    Are you a progressive nitwit posing as a liberal? I ask because pissing on somebody else's parade is one of the signs of that affliction. Please say it ain't so?

    :cool:


    and you do see the irony here don't you? (failure to do this is another sign)
