  • When did Rick Perry turn into... this guy?

    D521646 to Jonty30
    Well, I haven't watched the debates thus far other than a few snipps.. However, has anyone stopped to consider that although Perry's delivery needs to be cleaned up, his theme is correct. What do you do with the 15 or so million illegals that have children here? Ya know, other than sneaking in to our country (What would you do if you lived in Mexico and wanted a better life for your kids but couldn't afford the roughly $6K it takes in forms, and filing to get legally here - I know how much it is and how long it takes I am a permanent resident from Canada cira 1998) as the major offense to American’s paying taxes, most of these people are good honest, and decent people. The crime rate among just the illegals is no more, and is in fact much less than the crime rate of blacks in this country as a percentage..

    Don't want to call it amnesty, ok, well fine, but if you have a way to solve this problem without offering those good hard working people a chance at the American dream, and live within the constitution then I'm all ears..

    So, fellow Freepers.. What's your solution to the illegal problem? What, deport all of them? yeah, right, like that's working out well. Amnesty, Oops sorry, ugly word around here, or some effort to keep the good one’s who's only crime was looking for a better life is I'm afraid the only logical solution, PERIOD!

    Hey dude, I’m no homophile.. I deplore homosexuals, and what their agenda is doing to our society, but I’m a stickler for the truth.. Your article although interesting tells me nothing, and sure as hell doesn’t support your claim. I don’t need to see a doctor to answer my question. I already know how HIV is transmitted, and to my knowledge the female sexual system is very adept at fighting off bacteria, and disease from foreign bodies.. I don’t dispute that claim, only the claim that it is male on male anal sex that manifests HIV? If that were the case, we would see it in more women who have anal sex as well, but we don’t, so...

On the contrary, this article above, which, as it happens, is a perfect textbook example of propaganda, and the appeal to authority fallacy, is inconsistent with his opinion on economic matters just this month alone.

    Fair enough.

    My current hypothesis is one which isn't exactly an “un-caused, cause”, but rather a caused, but uncaring, uninterested, unmanaged, event. This leads to the ultimate conclusion that there may have been a creator, but it isn't the one many religions might think, and hope it to be. In this sense, to believe in a God that has no interest, or otherwise any benevolence towards humanity specifically is, counter-intuative, and ultimately unproductive.

    The only veracity in such a belief is that, there is, or was a God that created the universe. The only comfort in that is that, given my premise, we can attain this level of understanding, and perhaps do it all differently? I'm comforted enough by this philosophy - it changes little my direction in life, and I need not believe in any afterlife for me to live a moral, virtuous existence. I know that one day, someday in the distant future, we humans can reach a level of understanding that will give us the foresight to know God, and even become God. Perhaps, the God we all envisioned to begin with, is the illusionary a priori of ourselves; maybe some massive, collective deja vu. :)

    I don't know for sure, of course. But it's a good exercise for the brain regardless.

    “From where do you derive this presupposition?”

    Well, that would be self evident, wouldn't it? I will be smarter (loose term) tomorrow than I am today.. :)

    “This is a logical fallacy.”

    Oh, and which fallacy would that be? The truth of the premise assures the truth of the conclusion. It is one thing to say that you disagree with the premise, but I would then ask for a compelling argument that disproves the premise.

    “Agreed, but from where did this intelligence come from? From blind, random luck?”

    It doesn't need to come from anywhere in order for the premise to be true; it only need be present.

    “I have posited earlier on this thread (post 43) that since we are here, we are here either by accident or design.”

    By accident, I assume you mean random chance? Accident implies a priori intent.

    “If we are here by accident, there is no God”

    Now, this ^^ is a logical fallacy.

    “just a universe that will expand to heat death, or collapse back on itself, and there is nothing ultimately to be learned with this intelligence we have been given.”

    Another fallacy ^^ What are the limits on intelligence, and knowledge?

    “However, if we are here by design, it would make sense that we were given this intelligence to explore the universe to see the designer's intent.”

    Making sense, is the crux of the issue. There is no “sense” in the design of the universe that would suggest your assumption to be true. God, may well have simply begun the process, from another period, and as a result may have even destroyed itself. In this vein, perhaps the “intent” is to not make the same mistake, but now we're entering the realm of metaphysical-analysis. It, at our current level of understanding is an exercise in futility. :)

    The axiom is only in the statement that, a “myth” is unknown, unseen, unknowable. I belong in no camp, per se. I believe in God, just not the God that many Christian’s, Jews (Of which I am born), and Islam. My belief is that it is not unreasonable to presuppose that with enough luck, and over time, humans can know all there is to know about the universe. If it is logical to accept this premise, then, and only then, one can accept that, if it is possible for humans to become God-like, then it is also possible to assume that something has come before us.

    In this sense, I believe in God-like, entities. My God may, or may not care one iota about that which it has created, only that it had created it. In many ways this is tantamount to keeping an ant colony, caring for it, watching over it, and fully understanding that you hold the entire fate of this colony in your hands. You may not even care after a while, what happens to the ants, you did not create the ants, but the ants, in this scenario are merely for illustration. The ants, are synonymous to the elements available to you in the macro, as opposed to the micro.

    It’s also possible I’m completely wrong about it all. It is however, reasonable to presuppose that I might be right. It is incumbent on those that believe in God, to question their beliefs, reconcile them, and come to their own personal conclusions, and I NEVER admonish anyone for their well reasoned, and thought out philosophies on God, or anything for that matter. We have been adorned with the gift of thought, and intelligence. We should use it, and we are. Science and religion are not so far apart, in fact, many times they arrive at exactly the same cross-road.

    Please elaborate on what exactly? My statement was an axiomatic truth. The premise of the Bible that claims there is a God, is mythical, unseen, unknown, unknowable.

    To the other poster: I see no inherent contradiction between a belief in intelligent design, and evolution. In fact, in the realm of contemporary physics, scientists are stuck. They’ve conjured up fantasies such as M-Theory, String theory, multiverse, and extra dimensions; all, as it would imply, a fantasy in realistic parlance.

    The Bible itself is not a myth, the context, and premise of the Bible is mythical. Juts like any other myth. I see his point that, to religious children, reading something like this will invariably draw questions. I empathize with him, and I think he has made his point, however, I doubt the school will capitulate?

    If you’re going to fight the good fight, regardless of cause, one might deduce that one should fight the good fight when the battle lines are drawn down the middle of your house. Adults, are generally immune to the effects of homosexual influence, however, there is a good deal of data that suggests that children, and particularly adolescent kids, that are most susceptible. Why, you might ask? Well, it is incontrovertibly established that our pre frontal cortex isn’t fully mature until roughly age 18 - 21 in most kids. That means that our ability to properly reason, and rationalize based on fully understanding external forces isn’t well honed until after that age.

    How many times have you heard of a perfectly functioning adult heterosexual turning gay? It doesn’t happen, it does however, happen sometime in a child’s maturation. We don’t know exactly how, but, despite the homosexual agenda’s claims that people are born gay, there is absolutely zero, zip, zilch evidence that supports this theory. Armed with this intimate knowledge of how the brain works, and how we reason, and throw in some anecdotal support, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put two-and-two together.

    Kids need to defend themselves from danger. They’re not equipped to do it biologically, and or psychologically until they reach adulthood. It is our responsibility as parents (I have 4 children) to show them how to spot the danger, and how best to deal with it. I’ve done the research, spent hours and hours on the topic, read all there is to read on the subject, and I’m quite certain that my pre frontal cortex is in good working order.

    Even with the defenseless, immature child, nature thought it through. Not all kids are susceptible, but some are, and adding other external prerequisites, we have a situation whereby some kids, unbeknownst to the bewildered parent, may fall into the trap that is homosexuality, and its influence.

    Quite right! “We” the people don’t realize just how much power we have with this. We even trump any power the Government has in meddling with the economy. If just one third of all US depositors withdrew their money all at once, it would collapse most of the major banks. Overnight, a lot of the major banks would be in defualt of US regulations regarding capitlization. Banks must maintain a minimum ratio (I believe it is 60%) of cash (Capital) to loans (Debt). Right now, although we are (Meaning the US banking system as a whole) still under the magic 100%, tettering at 98% deposits to loans, that could change very quickly if 1/3rd withdrew their money overnight.

    For some banks, not so healthy, it would leave them with less than 60% deposited capital to loan ratio, and force them to sell the debt within 30 days. The banks think they have all the power, and to some extent they do, since the majority of American’s are incapable of organizing such a rebellion, but it could be done. All you need is a very reputable voices all saying the same thing, and whamo, panic ensues..

    D521646 to massmike

    The problems with the hormonal “theory”, is that it leaves no baseline for measurement, and,like the authors’ conclusions, is, for all intents and purpose, an untestable path to pathology. Adding the fact that, any human testing of this theory would result in a massive ethical suit brought against those performing the research. Without any controlling factors, the only thing left for a qualitative approach would be that of identifying, and defining “gayness” from those just born, and the various stages of their maturation into adulthood.

    I see no viable way to make such a study produce convincing results?

  • Can a person be born gay/homosexual?

    02/08/2010 12:40:12 PM PST · 228 of 230
    D521646 to scripter

    Well, thanks Scripter! Truth be told, I have battled liberals, and advocates of SSM for well over 8 years now. Like you, I entered the fray because I saw a consistent contradiction with the claims they (The agenda) were making. All too often I have seen how unchallenged rhetoric can swiftly become the truth. So, back in the day, I did some quick searches on the net, and started to really learn about how deep the agenda was. How terrible the MSM was at reporting the facts. I saw people vilified on message boards, including myself. I saw them called everything in the book, from gay themselves, to homophobe, to racist (Which speaks volumes for the accuser) to hater.. The list goes on. I got tired of it. I knew that even a cursory opinion against homosexual marriage, or special rights, wasn’t indicative of someone that was hateful. Mostly it came from parents, grand-parents, inquisitive minds; people truly curious, like myself, on the causes of homosexuality. As a student of philosophy, and a logic, I felt that from my desktop I could help people understand how they were being had. How they were being mislead on this subject; and specifically how the terms of the debate were being systematically redefined before our eyes by a mostly complicit media machine.

    I still get hostile people calling me names and such, but I rarely if ever these days bother to acknowledge their childish retorts. If you can’t argue without name calling, then you do not deserve any of my time, and effort. Like you said, Scripter, the issue is very complex, and you can tell instantly when you’re arguing with someone that has no clue what they’re talking about. Try to educate them, and you’re not seen as noble, but a bigot. When the definition of bigot is directed back to them, they simply slip away, forever into the doldrums of internet fantasy.

    I don’t, and have never claimed to know for sure if homosexuality is inborn, but the VAST, (And it’s not even close) amount of real science done on the subject points to a mostly, if not entirely, environmental cause. If it is environmental, then experimenting with our kids is the epitome of unethical science. I won’t allow that to happen on my watch.

    D521646 to scripter

    Coming to this a little late.. Good conversation about the what’s, and what-not’s of homosexuality. I would say that, for the most part, most of the information given here by those opposed to the idea of being born gay is, well, primarily spot on.

    I would like to comment briefly on this though:

    “As I see it, the vast majority do not choose their same-sex attraction but neither are they born with their same-sex attraction. It’s quite complicated but environment, as any credible scientist will say, is the major factor”

    I believe that, in all honesty, and from the research I’ve seen, and the many, many abstracts I’ve read on the subject; the “choice” must take place on, or before someone’s 18th birthday. Of course it varies somewhat, but, notwithstanding making a self aware choice, the decision is made, and then hard wired prior to the maturation of the pre frontal cortex. Once the PFC is mature, it takes a tremendous effort to undue the wiring. Of course, that will lead many to google just exactly what the PFC actually does, but I invite all to take the challenge. The journey to the truth is enlightening. :)

    Point is, and this is why I am adamantly against institutionalizing homosexuality in any form, including, but not limited to homosexual marriage. Doing so secures the right to teach it to our kids. You know, those kids that haven’t themselves developed their own pre frontal cortex..

    Homosexuality, and the belief that it is somehow innately human, and immutable, is analogous to religious beliefs. ONE has to believe it to be true, and once that dedication has been made, no amount of information to the contrary will supplant the belief system. I have no problem with adult homosexuals, but my tolerance stops at the children. They’re not equipped to protect themselves against the kind of indoctrination that a homosexual curriculum would bring. Since, as the OP rightly points out, no one knows the answer on whether gays are born that way or not, we as a society should err on the side of caution. Even if that means upsetting a few homosexuals in the process..

    What gets me, is that for the first time in a very long time, politicians have an actual excuse to eliminate lobbying altogether.

Isn’t it our job to form an opinion, and take our politician to task ourselves? The employers of the politicians - the “we”, in We The People, don’t have the access, why, because we don’t have the money for that extra special face time.

    I would submit that ANY politician that presents the message that we no longer desire the lobby in Washington, or anywhere, would garner huge bi-partisan support? What is the downside to the politician; other than, that all important special face time? Oh, and it just happens to cost you for that face time..

    Spot on! It was funny, last night I was yelling at my TV as I watched O’Reilly, Hannity et al, all miss this point. Sarah hit it on the head in that, this is EXACTLY how we delt with them pre 9/11 ... Obama needs to send a message, and toot suite, or he, like so many dims before him, will be a 1 term prez!!

    There’s one thing American’s have consistently put above partisan politics, and that’s the safety of our families.. He would do well to recognize this, and fast.

    Well, I like Beck, but he’s off base on this one. The only thing I want to know, is, is he a Native born American or not? The real birth certificate will suffice.. :)

  • Interesting Discussion Brewing With "Transgendered" People

    D521646 to OldDeckHand

    If I had some time to argue, I’d join in on the “discussion” over there, but I do not. I’ve argued with those people for years, and trust me, you simply cannot get through to them.. You ask them for proof, incontrovertible, of their claims, and they point you to websites that offer no proof.. Sure it all sounds good, and intellectual and all, but the fact of the matter is that there is NO, zero, nada evidence, scientific or otherwise, that identifies homosexuality, transgenderism as genetically based. When they say; well you must hate blacks too, or women, you can argue that blacks, and women cannot change their disposition, it is immutable. Their disposition is innate. Sexuality is behavior-based, much like which foods we enjoy, or not, outside of any basic instincts to procreate, we choose how, and with whom we do it.

    It is not bigotry to continue a position in the absence of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. It is not racist, it is not hatred, at least not on my part, it is the simple fact that the homosexual agenda is, and has been trying to politically redefine perversion for the last 40 years.. Homosexual sex, and transgenderism, is on the same level of alcoholism, and fetishism.

    When they argue that; well, it doesn’t harm you, or your marriage, (A favorite of mine), you can agree, it does not harm you, or your marriage directly, in fact, it doesn’t harm any consenting adult. The problem however, is that, like smoking, or drinking alcohol, it isn’t the adult we need to worry about. Our prefrontal cortex is fully mature. It’s the little ones we need to protect from this insanity.. Also remember that fundamental societal changes happen over long periods of time, the measuring of their consequences is equally difficult. But by then it’s too late. The homosexual lobby understands this truism concerning their plight, one would do themselves, and their country a favor by NOT ever forgetting that one should never give in to what is observably, and demonstrateably inconsistent with human design.

    “PS Are there any other FReepers who know you who also post on the other site, the one where you are known as “hicup”...?”

    Hmm.. Not sure. I’ve linked there a few times whilst posting here, but other than Harry, I couldn’t say.

    Not for nothing, but I was banned from Space dot com, for being, well, a little too conservative. Took almost 8 years, but I skipped rope over there for the longest time. What got me banned was posting a link to pictures of the “Folsom Street Fair”, exposing the real homosexual community. There’s a pretty good mix of ideological differece over there, and it was a good proving ground for my earlier career fighting the good fight. I believe that I have presented the best, none relgious argument against the institutionlizing of homosexuality in our society, on the net.

    The trick; if you will allow me, to arguing with a liberal, is spotting when they’re going wrong, and early. Liberals tend to focus on the exception, rather than the rule. It is this delusion that is the primary driving force behind everything they do.. This is also why their logic will inevitably fail when pressed. The exception cannot ever be reason to alter what is good for the rule. Fundamentally, what is good for the greater number, all things being equal should be the direction one take. Now before I hear it from the “he must be a marxist crowd”, pleas eunderstand that the key word to my statement is “Fundamentally”...

    Anyone, and I mean anyone, would have difficulty catching me in an inconsistency.. why? Simple, I believe what I believe, and I’ve been around long enough to know what it is I believe. if you plan on getting me to concede a point in an honest debate, you’d better damn well provide a very compelling argument.. The difference between me, and a liberal, however, is that I will admit, publicly, that I may have made an error. That’s called integrity, it’s one of my core values, I live it.

    The reason I did not engage you, point by point, in your analysis of my possible “liberalness”, is that, (And I don’t mean this as an attack on you) frankly, you didn’t provide anything tangible to argue against. In reality, all you did was try to make a connection where none existed. My criticism of Sarah is coherant to me, but maybe not others. That means other voters. I may see something, others might not, who knows, but I do stand behind it, even if I want the woman to succeed; which I do.

    “I agree that she comes across as less sophisticated than other candidates”

    I don’t think it’s that. What I mean is that, I find her as sophisticatet as anyone else, in a southern belle style of sophistication, but yet in Alaska. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, in fact, I think it adds to her image. It’s not a sophistication type deal, it’s what I said it was. That she seems unable to “create” political policy, on her own - or at the very least, change the way in which the message is delivered, and is the catalyst for changing someones mind on the matter...

    The people that hate her, will always hate her, the people that love her will always love her, but the people in the middle are waiting for something innovative, something they can all cling to.

    I’m that guy.. I want to be in her camp 100%.. Right now, I’m not.. Close, but not 100%..... Yet. :)

    Arnnie has no sympathy from me.. He should never have signed anything remotely this riduculous to begin with. Arnnie wants to play the middle in CA.. Not going to happen, the left will eat their own every time they need to.

    Fire them.. Arnnie should say one out of every three state employees will lose their jobs, and demand that management is also included in the job cuts. The job cuts will be by lottery, which will be publicly drwan one week from today.

    There, how’s that for action.. :)

    Last time I checked transgenderism is still in the DSM under mental disorder.. The Prez just appointed someone with a known mental imbalance.. Go figure, but perhaps it all fits, since it appears the Prez is also suffering from narcissism, ego mania, and a variety of other well documented illnesses.. :)
