Well assuming that video wasn't doctored, that guy is definitely in the wrong. No two ways about it, and it doesn't matter your party affiliation to see it. Still that person doesn't represent all Conservative supporters and it's quite deplorable that happened.

That aside that video does not clearly state Trump helped this man financially. Once all the evidence is acquired I'm pretty sure they will find that guy in the wrong and not help him legally. But you provided a legitimate source, and yes I would call that a sucker punch.

I didn't say anything about gay rights. I see now you will just see whatever it is you want to see i'm out.

Hey, that's not true and a copout. You were talking sports teams, I was talking historical events and their relevancy. Whether I approve of gay rights or not is irrelevant, it'll still be viewed as an objectively good thing to advanced nations many years from now.

It is a prerequisite, yes. That's what I was getting at. It's one of the basic assumptions that has to be made for human reasoning to work. Whenever some uses the word "objective" it triggers me a little because I reserve that word for completely basic, rational, unemotional thought. I'll go hang my Fedora back up for now and get a little less euphoric.

Beneficial from a human perspective, yes, but there's nothing supporting the idea that human perception is objective or of any objective value. One must take an anthropocentric stance to argue that.

Well it doesn't have to be anthropocentric per se; a lot of the same arguments could be used for non-human animals as well. It has to do with subjective experience of course, but there are objective ways to improve or degrade that experience. Cut off my fingers, and my subjective experience is made all the worse, and you have objectively mutilated me. That's a fairly coarse example, granted, but you could apply the same reasoning for any set of parameters you want; the issue is it becomes increasingly complex as you go along. Harris makes the concession that of course morality only matters to things that experience consciousness; that's basically a prerequisite for the argument.

Its not complicated. Beliefs are not smart. I follow the broncos because i was told they were the best by my dad. My brother likes the raiders because my dad said the broncos are the best. My other brother doesn't watch football, nothing wrong with him just not his thing. There could be a badass fucking sport that would exist if not but for football.

As much as you would like to consider your preferences as being the best or even lasting they are not. Eventually people are going to ask why the hell did people ever think it was good. Its just shit you believe as being right. Its why history won't remember any of them.

So you're saying gay rights is not going to end up on the correct side of history? That's still a false equivalence you're making.

No offense taken, btw. We all need to blow off steam sometimes and anons on the internet are a pretty safe way to do it.

Have a good one.

Part of the problem is just human nature. We're far more likely to remember and point out the bad things we've seen even if their re-occurrence is an improbability. The same way that, even though I've been to Taco Bell a ton in my life, I can vividly remember getting a really bad burrito last year but can't remember all the great ones I've had every other time.

FJers are humans (even admin) and humans are silly that way.
