    It's very boring to have to repeat my points, but as you ignore them, and seem literally incapable of following the debate, I will do so. But this'll be the last time you and I debate anything, I have you pegged.

    (Yay, natural competition....go, first to rip their baby from their womb wins a Boneflour T-shirt).

    (Yeah, and here's a chimp with a frog showing humanity...boom).

    I don't need to read your mind, I just need to read your words, which I correctly understood, and you confirm above your view that human evils are no worse than those animals, you even used bold letter to make it crystal clear, excellent.. As you're slippery on words, for the record, I'm not referring to anything other than good and evil, and more specifically, evil. In fact, you now state explicitly that you believe humans are better than most animals (hmm, just most animals eh), which tips you further away from my view, so that's good to clarify. You continue to ignore the abortion issue, you continue to ignore Christianity. The avoidance of those two issues speaks volumes for your worldview, and volumes about your debating style: evasive, like a politician. I'll bet a dollar you still ignore those two points. Because you're in a hole, you lost this one. The only possible way out of your hole is to argue for abortion as not evil, and against Christianity as endowing *good* values on its followers. Please, be my guest.

    So, the old high horse tactic appears, as a deflection. Doesn't wash with me, just plain boring and childish. Be a man, address my points.

    As for the Ma issue, he made a statement, but offered no proof. You and Apercus eagerly jumped in and stated he was correct and you agreed with him. I've stated already I think he was talking utter BS. You and Apercus on the other hand, have agreed without a shred of evidence.

    So, time to put up or shut up dude. Read the article and his words carefully, go and do thousands of hours of research, and report back. Even then, it'll be pure BS, because it's all hypothetical anyway.
    But yeah, you agreed anyway, with a fucking Chinese globalist and a US-hating Marixst dude. Noice.

    I was going to throw this on a separate thread, but as this is the last interaction you and I will have, it fits nicely here. A while back I made an innocent little joke on your gym thread:

    Boneflour responded: 'Don't speak for me, thanks.'

    glosoli: 'Even when I am making a fantastical claim that we are lifting fully grown cows for the sake of banter and humour?
    Even then? Wow.'

    Boneflour: 'Even then. No offense, it's just something I feel strongly about. I ask that you respect it even if you disagree with it.'

    glosoli: 'They were rhetorical questions.But no offence taken.'

    I thought it was very weird indeed, and expressed in an unfriendly manner too. But people have weird irrational dislikes (me, I hate inconsistency and idiocy and snakery).

    Imagine my surprise when I watched this a few days ago:



    (Skip to 2:27 for Boneflour's opening line 'I was a weak sickly child......').

    Perhaps the weak sickly childhood explains a lot eh?

    A youtube video with someone literally pretending to be you and stating preposterous facts, not that you were lifting a fully grown cow as I had joked, but that you were lifting the whole gym, and your eyes changed colour too. I thought you'd be so angry, as, you know, it's something you feel strongly about. Here's the link to your response:

    So Boneflour, we're done. You're the sort of person I strive to avoid in real life. I see why you are working for the TSA.
    This little episode does make me start to question the validity of Thal facial types. Maybe you're altruistic, but so what, you're still a fucking unprincipled snake. Feel free to reply with whatever you like, you'll get nothing more from me.

    For the interested observer:

    Nobody ‘stealing’ your jobs, you spend too much on wars, Alibaba founder tells US | https://www.rt.com/business/374289-alibaba-us-jobs-military/

    Military expenditure (% of GDP) | Data | http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/MS.MIL.XPND.GD.ZS?name_desc=false&view=map

    (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute ( SIPRI ), Yearbook: Armaments, Disarmament and International Security.)

    Russia: 5% of GDP
    Saudi Arabia: 13.5% of GDP
    South Sudan: 10.9% of GDP
    Ukraine: 4% of GDP
    Israel: 5.4% of GDP
    Iraq: 7.3% of GDP
    Bahrain 5.6% of GDP

    Don't be a dumb fuck and fall for Russian propaganda folks (RT article), they're in bed with the globalists like Ma, literally trying to KILL AMERICA. Do not be that dumb fuck.

    Poor Bahrain, poor Saudi Arabia, if only they spent more on infrastructure and less on arms, maybe they wouldn't be so damn poor.
    Perhaps Boneflour and Apercus will go do some voluntary work there to help them out? LOL.
    Ghana only spends 0.5% of its GDP on arms, which explains the vast luxury and great jobs available in Ghana. Good for them, peace is good, jobs are good. More LOLs.

    It's neat that you took the chimp and the frog as representative of humanity, and ignored the giant ass cathedral photo that takes up twice the space.

    You realize that this is the Internet right? Did you know that when you tell a random person on the Internet not to do something, they'll often make a point of doing it on purpose out of spite? I did feel strongly about that representation, which is why I responded, told him an alternative, and phrased it as a joke. He got the point too:

    "Didnt mean to make you into a dink the dialogue was just too good."


    I didn't expect crap from him, and was pleasantly surprised by the "Sorry mate, couldn't resist" semi-apology.

    EDIT: Just realized that it sounded like Glosoli thought the other guy made up that dialogue. The other guy was reading a bit I wrote on a different post. I was disagreeing about the type of character he voiced and that it was MY testimonial instead of some random dude's testimonial that I wrote.

    Of course, I figured that a vetted poster on a more private forum that I'd talked to for a while would grant me more respect. Maybe I could just say "Hey I don't like this," and have that understood. But when I asked the same thing of you, a person I knew and had interacted with on the forum, I got this incredulous "WTF would you even ask that for?" reaction.

    I tell you now that I got more civility from a random asshole on Aeoli's blog than I got from you.

    I write these giant ass posts out of respect for the people involved, as a gesture of good faith. Flippant dismissal is always easier. But oh well, disagreed with you twice, now I'm an unprincipled snake.


    Sounds like word thinking to me:

    Scott Adams' Blog | http://blog.dilbert.com/post/149511360096/finding-the-political-bottom

    "Word-thinking is a popular alternative to reason. A word-thinker ignores facts and logic, and tries to jam all observations into existing labels. For a word-thinker, everyone in the world is either a racist or a good person. The reality is that human brains operate on pattern recognition, which pretty much guarantees that all of us are sexists and racists to some degree. But word-thinkers only see two categories."

    Scott Adams' Blog | http://blog.dilbert.com/post/147595892021/how-persuaders-see-the-world

    "You can easily spot word-thinkers when they talk about politics. Their go-to strategy involves identifying enemies and fitting them into whatever category matches their biases and cognitive dissonance. Look for this form:"

    Examples:

    • Person X is liberal, or not

    • Person X is a conservative, or not

    • Person X is a racist, or not

    • Person X is like Hitler, or not

    • Person X is a science-denier, or not

    From Scott Adam's blog post (which Boneflour quoted) :

    "When you are trained in the ways of persuasion, you start seeing three types of people in the world. I’ll call them Rational People, Word-Thinkers, and Persuaders. Their qualities look like this:

    Rational People: Use data and reason to arrive at truth. (This group is mostly imaginary.)

    Word-Thinkers: Use labels, word definitions, and analogies to create the illusion of rational thinking. This group is 99% of the world.

    Persuaders: Use simplicity, repetition, emotion, habit, aspirations, visual communication, and other tools of persuasion to program other people and themselves. This group is about 1% of the population and effectively control the word-thinkers of the world.

    If you’re a trained scientist, engineer, or other technical person, you might use data and reason sometimes, especially while others are watching and checking your work. But off-duty – and when it comes to anything important – we’re all irrational creatures who believe we are rational. At least that’s how trained persuaders see the world."


    Here we find the famous Thal-Crom/Saps-Melon distinction again. Great find.
    Truth convergence is wonderful.

    This is merely the second coming of the triggering, we are just evolving over here.

    Also, everything about Americanization will change, the meaning of it. Point in case being Trumps terrorist ban, holding a Swedish Passport is no longer a guarantee. Ooga boogas beware, the Between a Rock and a Hard Magnum is coming, and it itz extremly acceptable this time around.

    The first nuke evolved Animé, the second nuke evolved Nintendo Co. The ITZ is just severly underrated and misunderstood. It helps to be Swedish because we understand "Otack är världens lön". That said, having seen how the noble savages have turned Sweden into Arabia by simply existing in our country, I say, if I see so much as even a single fly shoe, god forbid the whole pair goes airborne, I will do my best to promote the glassing of the entire thirld world. "Death solves all problems - no man, no problem." - Joseph Stalin

    Approved by even SJW-Commies! Fantastic, let the improvamentation come home to roost. It is looong overdue.
