Re: The right to life, from a moral standpoint

It's hard to overstate the stark contrast between the extreme scarcity of times past and the techno abundance of today.  The fat of the land has never been fatter.  Does that figure into the question of ethical eugenics? We have am abundance of food...but we also have an abundance of mediocrity.  A...

You leftists freaking out over roe v Wade are wasting your time

Because you do not understand WHY this decision was made.  Frankly it has nothingbto do with the gop caring about the unborn or wanting to be mean to women. None of that is relevant.  It is actually because the 'right wing' in the usa is getting increasingly disillusioned with the system and checkin...

Laws are sometimes based on morals, ethics and whatnot.
I do not equate law and ethics.

Re: The right to life, from a moral standpoint

Abortion should be very limited , only done in the first trimester.   Children should not be killed after they are born.  Surprising that I have to clarify that. It has not been uncommon in history for inconvenient infants to be killed. And arguably is has been a policy that benefitted the survival...

Maybe you think that poor, unwanted kids are well taken care of in this country, I disagree https://www.nokidhungry.org/who-we-are/hunger-facts If child does not want to live they can always kill themselves. For you to make that decision for them feels rather morbid.  Although I must admit the nazi...

Re: My Thought Experiment on Artificial Intelligence. Long, so if you don't like philosophy, you wont read this.

Plato came up with concepts called forms. He wanted to define certain concepts such as beauty, justice, mankind...etc... These forms are to be considered the ultimate standard that the concepts are to be measured against. If there is a better, then there is a best that should be defined. This best ...

Re: New Federal Law About Guns Pending

Congress and the President have signed off on a bill preventing people with a history of domestic abuse from owning a gun.  If it passes the SCOTUS, Do you think it will make a difference? This was always the case. Literally always. If you tried to buy a gun 10 years ago they would look into domest...

Re: Just from a purely legal standpoint, people

it does, but IMO the right of an adult woman’s bodily autonomy trumps the right of the fetus.  Each state should be able to decide which right is going to prevail within their borders. Are you endorsing a federal mandate prohibiting all abortion in every state?  Like a reverse RvW? Again. The discu...

nothing I do with my own body should be illegal, so long as it harms nobody else.  That second part is the sticking point in the case of abortion. you are moving away from law here and trying to enter ethics.  My point was si.ply that roe v Wade was legally untenable.  Like sure.

Re: Just from a purely legal standpoint, people

Like the police department could go around executing any woman they suspect of having an abortion.

And when questioned about this they could simply say 'oh...this is a private matter'

Re: Just from a purely legal standpoint, people

apples and oranges.  Murder is not abortion, unless the victim somehow crawled up in the murderers stomach and camped out there, in which case the murder would be justified as it would be an unreasonable seizure of the perps body. some people absolutely do think abortion is murder.
