    Question about collectivism

    Any system that can impose obligations without consent has an issue. How it deals with that issue is the interesting part.
  2. There are curated FDR groups on Facebook, Minds, and MeWe.

    Day for Freedom

    Well, Lauren joined via video, but we also have this odd tweet: https://twitter.com/Lauren_Southern/status/993096564427165697

    Day for Freedom

    I'm not sure what you are saying. MMD already said Stefan will not be attending.

    Day for Freedom

    A lot of the people in the video promotion are not attending (like Stefan), or cannot attend (like Lauren, Brittany, or Martin who are banned from Britain).

    Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

    People are quite capable of recognizing what they are doing is wrong and doing it anyway. Some even expect to be condemned for it. Some erect massive excuses for it. Most are driven by impulse or expediency, though.

    Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

    Said of the Bible, "This Book is the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding; its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable." To me, God is (in the) the mind of man, the answer to inscrutable causes, the solace if the misinformed, the excuse of mealy-mouthed manipulators who, despite their best efforts, are unable to degenerate those who are basically good and mindful of their effects on others.

    Intermittent Fasting

    I agree that this particular approach did more to get me off the "rollercoaster" than any other technique.

    ‘DETERMINISM DEBUNKED’

    Arguing with determinists doesn't change anything.

    ‘DETERMINISM DEBUNKED’

    How about this statement? - you had a choice to post on this topic or not

    Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

    Aren't all systems of belief that require faith for adherence, lack of provision of evidence, and introduce diseases for which only their anointed have cures (at a modest cost) fraudulent?

    Did God err in making Adam ruler over Eve?

    The biggest lie the devil told is convincing humanity the eggs aren't in control.

    ‘DETERMINISM DEBUNKED’

    Pattern recognition as a survival trait does not prove determinism, it's just evidence that some organisms can recognize patterns. Consistency as a property of recognized pattern does not prove determinism, it's just more evidence that good generalizations about patterns are still good. One does not have to fully understand anything to recognize a pattern or to formulate a plan to exploit a recognized pattern. There's nothing perfect about any of this.
