Well, gosh, golly gee whiz... Glen you aren't supposed to go around pointing out my flaws! I thought it was our little secret that I'm not perfect!? Dagnabit. I shall never show my face around here again, lest I be ridiculed for my imperfections. Thanks a lot!


I would like to clarify one thing though. I realize I am a very difficult person to "read" so to speak. So I just want to point out that when I say things like the above, it is only in jest. Today I am feeling a bit spunky. Smile Which is a much welcomed break from my day to day mundane life.

I sincerely care about every single one of you regardless of what you believe, how you present yourself, where you've been, and whether or not we've had good, bad, or no interactions in the past,/present, or future. Please know, I would never intentionally say something to be vicious or hurtful to anyone. So, if I do accidentally do so I hope you will give me the benefit of the doubt long enough to talk to me about it and let me apologize. Smile

The end.

You are familiar with the term hypothesis contrary to fact, right?

Explain how that applies.

@neologist,
You're avoiding the question by misconstruing it. Try approaching it with the word hypothesis meaning, "something taken to be true for the purpose of argument or investigation; an assumption."

Or, just be forthright and say you can't or refuse to consider the question.

@Smileyrius,
It has to do with standards of morality and justice.

@InfraBlue,
What profit is there to base a discussion on fiction?

An interesting discussion, e.g. talking about God.

When one sets standards of righteousness by himself, does that not make him self righteous?

Just askin. . . .

@InfraBlue,
However, the issue of who has the right to set standards is one of the central issues in the universe. It was raised in Genesis, chapter 3.

@neologist,
Sure, but that's only if you believe Genesis 3 to begin with. Otherwise, the issue is moot.

touché, under your premise, you would be correct assuming no other differentials are introduced.,

An interesting question on the side...
In the bobble, is a warning always given prior to the execution of any given judgment, and is there always a way out ascribed, are any examples available where either of these steps are not met?

@Smileyrius,
May not qualify as a judgement but what about the Red Sea incident?

Was there an announcement like:
"2 minute warning. I repeat, warning, the sea will collapse in 2 minutes."
