LenHazell53 comments on Nov 10, 2020:
False dichotomy a gun is not a sentient entity and so cannot accidentally kill people, a doctor is and can You are only counting *accidental* deaths by fire arms *users* no one is legally a professional fire arms user, therefore the comparable amount of professional fire arms users compared to the amount of professional doctors is 700,000 : 0 which of course is going to mean Doctors kill more people through negligence or accident than professional gun users. Comparing victims of guns and medical personable is a slightly more fair comparison. On average 1378440 people in the USA die from fire arms every year, not counting those who survive being shot. Which is 0.42% of the total population the percentage of the total population deaths by medial negligence (according to your figures) is 0.0036% The actual number of licenced physicians in the USA is 985,026 (0.021) deaths per doctor per annum

LenHazell53 comments on Nov 9, 2020:
Not uncommon, during the Victorian period calling someone insane was the replacement for calling "witch" once accused there was little you could do to prove yourself "innocent" and incarceration in a lunatic asylum was invariably for life. Nagging wives, political undesirables, and aristocrats known to have committed crimes or have made embarrassing blunders such as giving large donations to charity, all ended up in one of the many "hospitals". At one time Bethlehem hospital (from where we get the word Bedlam) and Nut Hatch asylum in London we filled with people who had shown homosexual tendencies, suffragettes, or had been seduced by royalty and given birth, when the aristocracy needed them to be kept quiet. The definitions of insanity where very elastic and could range from eating "inappropriate" foodstuffs, to disagreeing with social norms or slandering your "betters" all obvious indications of a diseased mind.
God Is Dead: the Phrase Associated With Nietzsche
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 7, 2020:
The more accurate translate would be "God is extinct" The word Nietzsche used was Tot, which is a scientific term meaning extinct or expired but is used colloquially to mean dead, if he had meant deceased the word would have been verstorben, gestorben or abgestorben. The phrase came from a discussion on the enlightenment and how in light of it, religion was a pointless exercise.

Dowsing is an odd phenomenon.
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 2, 2020:
At the risk of wrecking my reputation as a total skeptic and cynic, I'm afraid I have good reason to at least wonder about dowsing. My father's late best friend of some forty years, a man names Denis Sheffield, worked for the north of England water board for his entire working life and after his retirement continued to work for them as a "leak finder" using a pair of precision made dowsing rods with foft foam rubber handles, with free moving mounted bearings to allow the rods to swing even when not being held, that could also be set on a custom made stand. To demonstrate that dowsing with nothing to do with him, he would mount the rods on their stand on the ground and move a plastic bowl of water under them and they would invariably cross. In tests against electronic moisture dectors he found underground fractured pipes more accurately and faster than the machines. HIs success rate was was good enough that he was employed full time for 42 years by the water board and would dowse for anyone who asked for help, but only for water or leaks. I often asked if he could find other stuff like metal or oil or even precious metals, to which he always replied that he had no idea and had never tried. "uncle" Denis never claimed supernatural powers or abilities, simply family folk wisdom, he was taught by his grandfather who used the same phenomena to tell folk were to sink wells and was a complete skeptic in all other matters. He is long dead now, unfortunately so as a mature adult I have no way to go and check on his abilities just childhood memories and a couple of old news paper cuttings from th local rag back in the seventies, still kept by my father.
Oh, lookee. RT saying USA is not democratic! Why?
LenHazell53 comments on Nov 2, 2020:
Even without reading the article I can agree, The USA like the UK and various other western countries has only a pretense at democracy. The best that can be said is that they are a representative democracy in some cases, a first past the post system in others, but the USA with it's misnomered "Electoral college" is the worst of them all. To call a system democratic where you vote to instruct a voter or collection of voters how to vote on your behalf, but they do not have to take your advice and can vote how they please regardless of the popular vote is to put it mildly fucking insane. The only thing more insane is that the voters themselves do not object to this system and willingly participate in it each and every four years.

Flowers produce fragrance to trick insects in to pollination again ensure survival of the species.

LenHazell53 comments on Oct 20, 2020:
Very much depends on your definition of evil, it is a very sloppy and subjective word that has like many others been hijacked by religion to literally cover a multitude of "sins". Evil cannot be the opposite of good because again good is so poorly and subjectively defined. It is not precisely synonymous (no pun intended) with "Bad" or Wicked" or "Mischievous" or "naughty". Evil is more of a personal concept of that which is personally derogatory or dangerous or has deliberate negative intent against the life, well being or personal preferences of the individual making the assessment or in this case something perceived as negatively impacting on life and wellbeing generally of those living in a state of mutually approved and defined normality. Evil like good, perfection and right and wrong is more of a concept, you know it when you see it, but often it will not be universally accepted as such. The battle between pro-life and Pro-choice movements is a prime example with each side decrying the other as the very epitome of evil, and yet with both sides completely agreeing with the merits of their opponents stand point in ANY OTHER context.

Pretty words Would that they were true. Love has never won a war, suppressed a dictator, overthrown a regime, ended a conflict, or brought peace. It is perfectly possible to love a dictator, love war and to love a bigoted doctrine and many do. Because it is a fundamental mistake to presume that Love is the opposite of hate, it is not. Love is the other side of the same coin, it is just as powerful and just as dangerous, love and hate can turn in to one another in the blink of an eye. Compassion is the healer after hate is defeated, not love. Empathy not love is the mother of compassion. The true opposite of hate is outrage.
