Topic: Serious Discussion / Iraq Round Three

“We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.”

Barack Obama, in response to the James Foley video.


I think that nicely sums it up. NATO moved in and started doing airstrikes a few weeks ago, but I think that they’re going to step up their efforts. By the end of this ISIL will cease to exist.

I honestly say FUCK IT. We have no reason to be there anymore. The man behind 9/11 is dead. Let the countries of the middle east kill settle it or kill each other. We spent too much time and resources on people who don’t want our help.

I agree with that, but recent events change the situation a bit. When you capture an American journalist, brutally execute him, then put a video of it online, almost as if to say, “Come at us, western infidels,”… well that’s how you piss off the United States. And now a pissed off United States is going to erase ISIL from existence.

Wishful thinking because when humans get on mars it will be ruined.

How can you ruin an uninhabitable wasteland? By building enclosed habitable colonies on it?

Topic: Off-topic / Official Anti-Psychiatry Thread

Question for the OP:

Do you dislike the current state of psychiatry and psychology, or are you against the field of study as a whole?

You are right that in its current state, it is flawed. We don’t know enough about how the human brain really works to be able to detect and treat mental disorders. Not only that, but because of our limited knowledge, our definitions of those disorders may themselves be flawed.

However, the human brain is a valuable topic of study. Eventually, we will develop a full understanding of the human brain. This will cause changes in society, but you cannot stop science. The knowledge will be found eventually.

Topic: Off-topic / The meaning of life

From a scientific point of view, the meaning of life… is to create new life.

All life in existence has a way to create new life. Generating new life is the ultimate purpose of all existing life.

UFC is extremely regulated and controlled. WWE is more stunt heavy. Are you underage judging by your username? Either way, muted.

Technically, if everyone is following the script and doing everything right, no one in WWE will get hurt. WWE “wrestlers” get injured when something goes wrong, when mistakes happen.
In the UFC, the risk of getting hurt just comes standard with the fact that it is a fighting competition.

Both are dangerous, just in different ways.

Topic: Off-topic / Explain to me why WWE is fake

I personally prefer watching something like the UFC where it’s an actual fight. The outcome is unknown and the audience can root for someone knowing that either person could win.

WWE has its own value as entertainment, it’s basically over the top scripted fight scenes. That can make for good entertainment sometimes, but it isn’t “real” in the sense that the two people are not actually engaged in a competition, they are following a script for the entertainment of the audience. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just a different form of entertainment than watching an actual fighting competition.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Genetic engineering and "playing God"

Some people who are against research towards advanced genetic engineering might say that it is unnatural, that we, as humans, should not “play God” by altering life.

But is there anything wrong with “playing God”? Multiple religions claim that “we are all God’s children”. Whether you are religious or not, surely you would see the flaw when a person who believes in such a statement criticizes a scientific practice by calling it “playing God”. If we truly are “God’s children”, then that would imply that we are destined to become like God. As his children, we would eventually, in a way, “grow up” to be like Him. So wouldn’t manipulating life be an advancement towards fulfilling our purpose as “God’s children”?

This question is not targeted at religious people or atheists, it is simply pointing out what appears to be a hole in the argument of the religious person who believes that “we are all God’s children”, but at the same time criticizes human’s attempts to do something that this person believes God does. If you truly believe that “we are all God’s children”, then you would consider it to be a good thing that we are trying to become more like God and living up to the “parent” that created us.

It might feel different just because there are fewer female gamers. So some guys feel like when they play with a girl gamer, they are experiencing something rare.

Wrong. Some do and some do not. There is no one view shared by all Muslims.

I’m sure that there are some Christians who would like to see the Church ruling their country. Religion is really a matter of personal interpretation.

Topic: Serious Discussion / An interpretation of God

Many atheists claim that, with all the misfortune in the world, how could a good God exist?

But does God have to be assumed to be “good” in order to exist?


I will present to you a viewpoint: God is not “good” or “evil”. God created the universe and set it in motion in a way that allowed it to develop on its own. He watches, but very rarely interferes. God is not a force of “good” or “evil”. He is neutral. He is a force of creation and an observer. God is there, and he is the creator, but he will not shape our world for us. We must take our destiny into our own hands, God will not do things for us. He is only watching, as he has from the beginning.


What are your thoughts on this?

But is this “beef flavoring” actually made from the meat of a cow or is it just fake, factory made “flavor” that doesn’t actually contain the thing that it’s supposed to taste like.

WWE is more dangoruos than UFC because if they mess up they could end up dead.

Are you implying that fake fighting is more dangerous than real fighting?
