Re: Is gender relevant anymore?

My point came from the fact that bigotry (per the definition used) has hatred at is core, and since hatred is such a personal perception, outsiders may only guess but never be certain if we hate or only act as if we hated.

Re: A "Proof" for theism

I am trying to say proofs of non-existence cannot be based on any formal logic, for the absence of evidence is not sufficient to be evidence of absence. So if there is a divine being, the onus rests on the believer (who wishes to convince others) to offer proof of existence. This thread considers if...

Re: Is gender relevant anymore?

Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; . especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

Re: A "Proof" for theism

Re: The Bouncy Rubber Ball Syndrome

It would be nice if every BRB thrown by the Herr Gropenfuhrer, or one of his minions, was always met by a "why are to trying to distract us again?" response.
