Dunno about that. I find it easy to not offend people. I’ve learnt that if I get on a subject that people will be offended by they give little tells in their manner and expression.

That makes me think: I better drop this.

I used to think that saying what I wanted to say was being honest and the best way to be. Then I learnt that often people have no interest in my pet topics and stopped going on.

I and everyone has been a lot happier since.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

Re: PC is simply a lie
Hi Faith, I hope you are well.

I think that rather than totalitarianism it is more that the current societal norms do not match and socially sanction yours.

That’s always been the case when one is out of step with the mainstream.

Did you know that some episodes of the American show ‘Friends’ are now considered inappropriate?

When I watched them in the 90’s I laughed along with everyone when Ross was being poked fun at for his wife running off with another woman: comedy gold! My 18 yr old Nephew told me it was outdated and insensitive.

I think you are conflating totalitarianism with the normative social values not matching your own anymore: my nephew thinks I’m his version of the ‘racist uncle’ trope.

Time makes fools of us all.

I see your point but it is possible to challenge racism (or anything that you disagree with) without being personally offended.

If someone is offend by that challenge that’s on them.

Re: PC is simply a lie
It it has always been the case that this is true. The difference is now your particular views are no longer the dominant views.

You are experiencing what (for example) a gay man or woman experienced in previous generations (in terms of social sanctions for not towing the cultural line).

This is bad for you now. But it’s always bad for someone: it used to be people unlike you, now it is people like you.

Society moves on: I’m my nephews ‘bigoted uncle’ because I laugh at Ross heavy episodes of Friends.

Re: Respectful Offense
You never need to punish children when you can use negative reinforcement which gets better results.

People who punish kids do them a massive disservice.

Re: Respectful Offense
Faith writes:

Any Muslim could be a terrorist, and could become a terrorist at any point even if not at the moment. That's because terrorism is built into Islam.


When I was a lad in Northern Ireland the Proddies and Chathos were always killing each other with terrorism. Can I take it that this shows that terrorism is built into Christianity?

If not, why not?

Re: Respectful Offense
That guess would be incorrect.

It is literally inbuilt into human psychology that people respond better to negative reinforcement than punishment.

Re: Respectful Offense
Really?

Psalm 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

Your book is just as bad. And as Jesus is God that’s Jesus saying that.
