    LaurieB #18: I feel the desire to “liberate” the N Koreans from their
    huge open air prison (Hitch phrase) but they won’t see us as
    liberators (will they? No. probably not.) They will be sure that
    everything their dictator has said about the US is coming true the
    minute we step over their borders.

    What about your dictators? 😉 You s…[Read more]

    Thanks for the link. 🙂 I shall look it up. Perhaps there is an insight why and how pictures pops up when reminding of something and they are perfectly synchronized with feelings, but not in dreams.

    Olgun,
    sorry about that exampe haha and perhaps clumsy coment…here was some children interrupting me. This sentence you wrote and it made me think: “I come to think that the visual cortex is where anything is possible (as in dreams)”. It motivated me to think how pictures pop up when we remind ourselves of something. I haven’t come up with…[Read more]

    I just cannot wrap my head around the xenophobia and
    clear blood thirst that the “holy mob” displays. BTW, I’d be just as
    acerbic had the mob been atheist or gay or whatever… Some paradigm
    changing narrative has to enter the cultural zeitgeist to shame people
    for being public with their violence and hatred. Keep yo…

    He also had 70 or more sons with her – according to
    pre-biblical holy texts! (NT Jesus – the 71st. or 89th. son of God???
    🙂 ) … Yahweh in the Bible commands the destruction of her shrines
    so as to maintain purity of worship to Yahweh Himself.

    I didn’t know this. A godess! But of course man had to get rid of…[Read more]

    If it is a “he”, does he have a penis? Does God have to take a pee?

    hahahaha… I like this!

    may be uncomfortable for many to answer truthfully.

    Lies are probably the most dangerous thing in human history and human relationships. At gla…[Read more]

    I agree, completely. 🙂

    And than this:

    Whether you think “instinct” is purely biological or a learned habit,
    or a combination of the two, it comes down to the same goal: the
    minimization of harm to biological organisms.

    I have read and heard from many documentaries (about humans) how we have no instincts any more just some reflexes. Enough time have passed so…[Read more]

    Alan4discussion #40 and Dan #41 :

    To me, not only that this phrase ““his own people” reveals horrible ignorance of that imbecile, but this also: “We had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons“. We had? To me this reveals his mental structure that says ‘world is my courtyard’, … ‘and I have the right…[Read more]

    It should be obvious that there is a Western long standing plan for intervention on some pretext, and for a manipulated regime change.
    (As there was in Libya and Iraq.)

    I didn’t understand that. First part – yes, but about manipulative regime no. Perhaps you mented to put word manipulative regime into quotation? I say this because, to me…[Read more]

    Not my analogy, but it is amusing. Trump is definitely a Hawk Moth! Haha… He is no butterfly that is for sure! 😉 So it seems American political system was first designed as “butterfly” system but then democracy invaded and fucked it up haha… and they prefered “bees” system… and ultimately hawk moth! 😉

    phil rimmer #10 The article is just a teaser for the program…

    If it is so, than it is a bad one in my opinion hahaha. Who would be teased by it at all 😉 I would expect teaser to be simpler. You know… just in few simple and imaginitive words explaining what matters. That is a key of a good teaser after all isn’t it? 😉 I think people…[Read more]

    Why wouldn’t computer win humans in games or playing saxophone? Those are activities that have clear rules and steps. If machine follows that rules of course it will do it brilliantly (and if imput is correct). I do not understand why is this surprising. But I am not so sure that machines (computers) can “have intuition” about feelings. They can…[Read more]

    @Allan,

    Thank you Allan for this information. It is interesting how much Saudi Arabia and Oman are spending for military. So high percentage from GDP! Terrible, terrible.

    Any woman who has no insurance … I’d be happy if those
    pills are given away for free but can’t imagine that would happen in
    the US. Please let them be extremely cheap. This is even more
    important now for poor women who stand to lose their ACA health
    insurance if the Republicans get their way. Over the counter che…

    The strongest correlate with total fertility rate is
    poverty. Female education does indeed play a significant role, but it
    may be argued that this itself is more driven by poverty than
    religion.

    Why female education? They can not get pregnant by itself. If poverty is a constant and a reality for both sexes I do not…[Read more]
