    Well, I had made some, and then this crazy primate came in and drew so much of the attention that the words of all others seemed to fall into a well of silence. You should have seen it.

    EDIT: I apologize. It seems I did not realize the situation correctly. It turns out that the simian had already brachiated his way here before I got my two cents in.

    I like how Ape got banned. Let's do it again sometime.

    It was kind of like how Pluto was expelled from our solar system as a planet, except Pluto served a greater utility to mankind than Ape did to the forum.

    Sorry, not to derail. Carry on.

    What you are trying to pass as "natural laws" is in fact Nazism.

    And this is not a Godwin Point, since your rhetoric is EXACTLY Nazi.
    Not far right. Not fascist: Nazi.
    Even the most severe social eugenists of the early XXth century never described "civilization" the way you did. Only Nazis did.

You are willing to hurt somebody, even though you don't want to hurt that person, but in order wake that person up, you might have to hurt him or her,you might have to inflict pain."

    There is a severe over population problem in Haiti that needs to be addressed or the suffering will only get worse, generation to generation.

    Yes, help them with water, but mass sterilization must be considered.

    If animals were living in such misery, it would be considered inhumane to play the cat lady.

    Timid morality is the root cause of these peoples suffering

    Idiot compassion often lays the seeds for great suffering.
    I'm just going to hop on board this sinking ship as if Ape was still here.

    Undoing the definition of compassion also undoes what it means to be human - that is, maintaining the ability to disassociate yourself and place yourself in another's shoes. This is empathy, this is a primary element of sustenance of our species.

    When you ambiguate such a function of human thought, you dehumanize the subject. Suddenly the human subject becomes and object that doesn't hold the worth of a remnant of bacon.

    Which is exactly what the Nazis, Zionists, and many many other parties did to the Jews. The Nazis were completely unjustified - they just needed a donkey to pin the tail on in order to rise in power.

    So I think we should disambiguate "compassion", because there is only one compassion. Everything is is mitigated.

    I'm sorry, but what the word "Zionist" is doing in this sentence?
    Can you explain it, I don't understand?

    What are your thoughts, if you don't mind my asking?
    It depends on how you define "rights". That term has a different meaning to different people, depending on if they view rights in a positive or negative sense.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I would hazard a guess that a charity will get a rather good discount on them, also this Temple dosn't state what percentages go to the charity. I could be wrong but i can't find all the info i'm looking for, just seems a bit suspect.
    OP please correct me if i am mistaken


    *I think the water system is genius and to be honest i don't give a hoot which organization is taking up the cause as long as they are not eating up the cash and ramming religion down peoples throats saying it's a gift from a/any particualar God/s because it's not it's from public donation
