@Donotbelieve The winding road down to the hospital would have been a challenge as well, what with venemous reptile toxin coursing through my veins, amplified by the adrenalin of fear, and the extertion of the hike back (should I have made it that far) as it is a pretty steep climb out. The downhill traverse alone gets me winded. In fact, another time while driving up to a different hiking spot on the same road with friends after ingesting some substances intended to put us in an altered state once we got there, it kicked in early and I declared excitedly, "We're driving on the back if a snake!"

@Donotbelieve No, I would have died. I would have curled up into a ball by the riverbank and felt sorry for myself (at the time maybe even thinking it was God's punishment for ditching). ?

tkcoy comments on Mar 13, 2019:
Every single argument against Renickulous's position is bullshit, one degree or another. That being said... Sorry, buddy, I don't agree with you either... And some of your arguments and counter points have been pretty weak, or downright rude. I get it, it's a sensitive topic, but you've gotta grant...
WilliamCharles replies on Mar 13, 2019:
I am actively anti-war and push for prosecution for war crimes to prevent further war crimes. That falls in a greatest good for the greatest number category considering. Renick has numbers, but it's debateable if it's greatest good material. We all pick our battles whether rhinos, or kittens, or abortion, or whatever. There is nuance to questions about birth control or support for children already here and mothers in need if assistance. I am actually not that far from his position as I recently heard a host on one of the humanist shows I think who said most likely in the future people who were pro-choice will be seen as being on the wrong side of history the same as we view a pro-slavery position now. It reminded me of a scene in the 2010 sequel I read (will look up) where the future women the astronaut was about to have sex with saw he was circumcised and got grossed out, feeling it was a barbaric practice. Ideally, I believe abortion safe, legal, and rare. It is an issue that women deserve the greatest say over. As the joke goes, if men could get pregnant abortion would be a sacrament. The same holy rollers dead set against contraception and even child welfare are the most vocal about making the decision for the mother including in cases where the viability of the fetus and life of the mothrr come into play. Patriarchy plays a part as does the desire to control others based on one's oorld view. The same applies to same sex relations. If you don't like gay sex, don't do gay sex. All of us are subjected to Catch-22, which author Joseph Heller described in an interview as, "Catch-22 means people have the right to do to you anything which you can't prevent them from doing to you." So yeah, I reject his framing of "if you admit a fetus produced by human combination is human, then it demands you agree with me" as being bullshit, and lacking nuance itself. We live in a world with varying degrees of control over any number of things. It would be nice to have more choices that were simple cases of black and white, but that's not the cases. Thanks for your input. Not complete disagreement I think, but neither have me persuaded on anything substanitive.

@Renickulous Again, by the scientific standards you accept, answer the questions about your actions in the face of these "murders." You have tge attention of a pretty diverse forum. I'd think you'd want to share how much in depth ghought you've given to your own assertions. Consider my poll question an abstention for the moment. But this is literally "your baby." Enlighten us, please. I am certainly interested as I am sure at least a few others are as well. We're conducting this in multiple locations and I'm responding in both. Did I ask you ask the "save one only petri dish "baby"/"baby" baby in a fire" question here yet? Should be easy to answer for you since you assert you have the answer to the "what is a human life?" question. Have at it, Renick. You got the floor.

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 13, 2019:
@Renickulous You're not a prosecutor so get bent lad. But you are making some statements that you insist carry some obligations depending on how it is answered. You say humans are being murdered. No one in here that I know of is currently murdering any. But these "murders" are taking place, and yet the extent you are sticking your neck out is to ask the "are they human?" question in an online forum. A question you say you already know the answer to. A question that, regardless which of the two options I should select, you'll still be in here... doing nothing... but asking questions... in the face of these "murders" you say are being committed. So murder only bothers you to the extent you can get someone else to adopt your own viewpoint, but no more than that. Are you one of those that feel even contraception is murder? If not, do you work for greater sex education and pregnancy prevention programs? You know, "Children by choice not chance?" If not, why not? That would help YOU prevent a lot of these "murders" you want everyone else to concede are happening. Or is that "concession" the extent of your concern?

If you needed to rescue these "babies" (a newborn and the dish) from a fire and could only save one in this hypothetical, would you flip a coin to be fair?

@Renickulous That's like saying you not lobbying for mothers and doctors to be prosecuted for murder destroys your argument... or does it? You feel it is the "murder" of a human being, and yet your own actions seem to fall short of that. Why so? Are there other murders you so casually condone? Why or why not? This seems to do a fairly good job framing the issue. "Abortion is the focus of some of the most intense social, cultural, political, religious, and ethical debates in modern American society. Some regard abortion as something people should be able to choose while others say abortion is a great evil which is destroying the moral fabric of society. Many of the debates turn on the status of the fetus: Is a fetus a person? Does a fetus have moral or legal rights? How we define a person and the fetus may decide the abortion debates." https://www.thoughtco.com/when-fetus-become-person-with-rights-248026

I had used the single word "Putz" commenting on some nonsense Chuck Schumer was supporting (criminalizing BDS iirc). This otherwise liberal former prosecutor came in swinging smearing me as an anti-Semite. I won't tag him here but he's mentioned by name there still because I addressed every one of his smears and statements point by point. He then deleted all his comments and disappeared. I personally am sick to death of those considering any criticisms of Israel, or Zionism, or Zionists themselves as anti-Semitic and I was loaded for bear. He skidaddled right quick.

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 12, 2019:
@TheMiddleWay I haven't created any arguments with the other side. No comments at all in their group as of yet. Just looked at a comment stating a negative view of some godless camp run by the SSA (Secular Student Association) because they were too liberal. Kinsey interviewed quite a number of people convicted of sexual crimes iirc. Regardless of his feelings towards their actions (child molesters, for instance), I believe he was able to gather data by doing his research in a clinical, dispassionate, non-judgemental manner. It is irrelevant if outside of those interviews he thought or said to someone, "that was one sick fuck!" And before you unleash your grad school whoop-ass on me, I'm not comparing my venture over there to someone doing hard research, but as I stated, I am genuinely curious (bipartisan curious? ? ). I hope I'd learn something like Bernie Sanders did when he did a townhall in WV following the Trump win. Those counties voted for Obama twice, but went for Trump in 2016. He wound up bringing quite a few to agreeing with his policy goals. I have no doubts that the dead-enders are unreachable, but winning back the presidency in 2020 will most likely require coalition building of some sort. And I can't imagine a better group of Republicans than the godless as far as picking their brains for ideas. They should be amenable to some sort of reason, where the religiously fixated often are not. But I will not be looking to sway anyone in there necessarily, because that is not my purpose in being there, but I hope can learn something that could be useful outside of that specific group. I made one sardonic comment in my original post about a figurehead I expect they'll either be forced to defend, or actually want to. Challenging them won't come from me though because I already stated I would not be in there a bomb-throwing troll. Possibly I might ask questions hoping they'd choose to flesh out their views. If any of them see my post here, as the public setting of my post would allow, I'll gladly engage them at any level they choose. Just as I'm doing with you. If having identified myself here means someone responds to me there, I'll specifically not resort to any ad hominems, even with regard to #45. You're welcome to bring up any of your points or concerns there as well. I'm addressing them here in a context not applicable there.

@TheMiddleWay Then let them meet head to head in the arena of ideas. They're snowflakes calling everyone else snowflakes. You have not established your point in the least. It's the analysis I'm asking to be impartial (a synonym of dispassionate). To look at the evidence itself dispassionately regardless of whatever strong feelings one has based on the things one has already learned supported by facts. If someone makes a better argument even if from a stance not in line with my own, I concede the fact. We can disagree on interpretations, but it has to start with acknowledging a common baseline of factual information, no?

I am choosing not to challenge them... but yeah, I'll probably wind up biting through my lip an awful lot. The whole reason I learned about the group in the first place was from a commentor on my post about capitalism. The very first answer I gave caused him to declare that (essentially) I was too stupid to debate and therefore wouldn't waste his time. He declared "Victory!" and turned tail. ?

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 12, 2019:
Your half the population observation is correct. Republicans claim to love America, but easily hate half the population. Many of the Republicans in my family and circle are nice individuals, and I love them as people, but hold many ideas completely at odds with the otherwise decent human beings I see. That is the difference.

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 12, 2019:
Here's an example of a clinical observation. Republicans have long sounded the alarm about the growing federal deficit and deficit spending and portrayed themselves as responsible stewards of the economy. Now that they have exploded the deficit, they say it's no big deal, while at the same time pushing to destroy many of the social programs they've always hated because of it. Again, probably my biggest curiosity and reason for joining in the first place is to see how they can reconcile their humanism with a party of avowed god-botherers. The party with massive evangelical support of someone so lacking in Christian morals and integrity ("Christian" as stated, not practiced). This is a party of whom many feel the election of Trump is no less than God's will. How can unbelievers ally themselves with this? It's as incongruous as Jews for Hitler would be. Or Dems ignoring the abuses of apartheid Israel. I imagine what I'll find is it is all about power. It usually is. There's power in a group hating the same things you hate. If the hatred is warranted, I have no problem with that. What I hate is a lack of integrity and hypocrisy that goes with that. I feel standards should be applied uniformly, and am willing to call out anyone who deserves it.

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 12, 2019:
@TheMiddleWay - There is no incongruity. The assessment can be dispassionate, while the reaction itself can be quite strident. I don't mind an intensely emotional reaction if it is supported by facts. I'd agree with them if they pointed out that Hillary Clinton is criminally corrupt, or that often governmental programs can be counterproductive. The lack of objectivity is my concern. That doesn't require sugar coating everything or falling back on a "both sides" approach either. As I said, while I'll be leaving all this outside, I can still judge their arguments, should they present any, on merits. If a particular sobriquet is deserved, so much the better. "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention."

WilliamCharles replies on Mar 12, 2019:
Why, because I open with a dig on the Mango Manchild? Should I offer my views here on why the Yam-in-Chief is such an execrable piece of garbage? My dispassionate analysis brings me to the conclusion that he should be mocked endlessly in the hope it will chase him from office as rapidly as possible. The only reason ridiculing his physical attributes is fair game is because it's a staple of his own attacks, and the tiny hands gigging is especially annoying to him. The mayor reference is because he's so wholly incompetent and corrupt, that it's truly unbearable that he has failed upward to the point of the position he now holds. The damage unstable POS is causing will be long lasting. This is about as dispassionate as I can get regarding Fuckface von Clownstick. If the winky emoji is meant to be like a snark tag, no matter. My views still hold.

LP - Halo (Beyonce Cover) [Live] More serendipity. I heard the tail end of the original artist's version while in my car in a parking lot waiting to go inside the store but they didn't back announce it. I tried doing a lyric search but no luck (I thought she was singing the chorus, "I see your hunger, hunger, hunger). While cooking, I put on a YouTube LP playlist and her version came on. My jaw dropped. I would never have known otherwise because I probably couldn't name a Beyonce song if my life depended on it. Btw, here are some good sites to track down songs from just a snippit, or if you just want to pull up songs on a particular theme not part of the title. http://www.lyrster.com http://lyricsworld.com https://www.lyricfinder.org https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L6X0PqIWfzQ

Van Morrison- Here Comes the Night (Live) Part of my love of life perfomances is the fresh arrangements of beloved classics. When I bought this album, I had a tuner with a built-in 5-band equalizer. I loved putting on headphones and boosting the high end (the weakest part of my hearing range as it stands) for this. Talk about my eardrums being tickled by the various string instruments! Each getting their own moment in the spotlight to shine. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E9WqXDDWxro
