Re: A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

From a Buddhist perspective it is better to work through the President's faults and to find a pathway forward for the good of the country, rather than "resist" everything about him, both political and personal. What if the president is incompetent, deserves to be impeached for colluding with Russia...

Re: A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

Stefan's wife is also a mental health therapist, and they got into trouble for urging her clients to "defoo" their parents. This is all public information. Thanks. I'll steer clear of both of them, unless I feel like rejecting my parents or indulging in a little race hatred. :tongue: I have tried t...

Re: A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

Molyneux ranks the races in the same hierarchy provided by the Pioneer Fund. As Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average IQ test scores, Molyneux places them at the top. Second-place are East Asians—Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans. In the middle are non-Hispanic whites and Sephardic Jews. Molyneux pl...

Re: A Libertarian Icon’s Descent Into Racist Pseudoscience

He's the guy who told kids to disown their parents if their parents didn't support atheism and anarchism. That doesn't sound like a good start, so I'm not surprised to hear that he has gone from bad to worse. Stefan's wife is also a mental health therapist, and they got into trouble for urging her ...

There is nothing clear about your thinking if it supports racism and right-wing extremism, which your response to the OP suggests.

Re: Changes in attitudes towards global warming

But you still haven't demonstrated that "global warming activists ... refuse to acknowledge the impact of the animal livestock industry on greenhouse gas emissions." In fact, your last post is evidence against that view. I definitely recommend watching Cowspiracy, in which leaders of prominent envi...

Re: Changes in attitudes towards global warming

(1) Is Al Gore "most"? (2) I'm sure he has spoken about it anyway, although he may not have given it the emphasis it deserves. :coffee: Kim Al Gore, like other prominent climate change advocates, avoids promoting veganism or vegetarianism, or even a reduction of meat consumption, because of how it ...

Re: the great vegetarian debate

Can I ask why you're writing in larger font now? It's easier to read. I've never tasted meat or fish since I was a teenager, but I don't usually tell everyone I'm a vegetarian, I just get on with it. I am just very surprised with myself, since I used to eat meat everyday, with practically every mea...

Re: the great vegetarian debate

I had a few bites of steak today that my wife made, and I was struck by how unremarkable it tasted compared to foods like potatoes, brown rice, even kale. When you've been on a plant-based diet for over a month, like I have, you will likely lose your appetite and taste for meat. Meat just doesn't t...
