Re: another angry white nationalist with a gun

As the only anti-gun member of descentbb.net, I have never thought the solution was entirely about legislation, but more about promoting equality and altruism. If you live in a world where your needs are met, there is no incentive to shoot anyone with a gun. I would disagree. People with mental ord...

Re: Should we give land and power back to Native "Americans?"

I make a distinction, whereas they do not. So, when you start a thread titled " Muslim peace march in Germany...

Re: Should we give land and power back to Native "Americans?"

There is certainly a difference between Catholics and Catholicism for example. Only semantically. Again, you miss the point. Catholicism has no real meaning without Catholics practising it.

Not true at all. You can use the data to make predictions, then test those predictions is different experiments, and so on until you have a good model to develop policy from. lern2science.
