    So what?

    It COULD be possible that they are neither... but that is not my argument. That is not how I perceive things. That is not my argument.
    Your argument, if it can be called that, is a personal opinion. Everyone has opinions, but the problem here is that you claim it's logical. It's not, it's entirely subjective, not being based on fact.

    You're jumping guns (lol). Baby steps, hun. We have mouths. What else do we have? What are the IMMEDIATELY KNOWN PURPOSES OF THESE BODILY THINGS? Build from there.

    The thread is about the good/evilness of guns. Well, how do we find out? All we can do is... argue...
    I'm not jumping any guns. You brought up the mouths-are-meant-for stuff. I'm just trying to get some solid position statements out of you - there isn't much point in arguing someone's position when I can't be sure as to what it is.

    And baby steps would be easier if I had cupcakes for fuel.

    Mouths. What are they meant for?

    Sticking fingers in... is not exactly what one would expect to hear. I mean, sure, you CAN do that... but... I DOUBT that's their sole purpose.

    Because I made an argument that guns were inherently evil?

    Man, all this Fi...

    It's an argument... take it with a grain of salt...

    Sure, why not.

    But it's not entirely my personal opinion. It could be called that. It could be understood as it. But it's not...

    I used facts to build up to conclusions that COULD BE FALSE because we have no way of proving them - abstract concepts such as what is the purpose of man.

    Death is not wrong. It's an effect. If our purpose was to make society "LIVE LONG AND PROSPER" - then we're not doing something right if we're not eating...

    There you go, a biological conclusion which is very easy to settle on as a conclusive answer.
