  1. Your posts in the Leftists and Atheists thread require study of the linked articles which I don't have time for at the moment; I will respond this evening.
  2. Thanks!!! You too!!!
  3. Hey, I'm leaving again!

    anyway good luck with everything I may be back if/when Mickey O'Neill leaves and hopefully we shall at that point speak again :P Can't imagine a miser-less tsr.
  4. I had a brief (few month) stint of it a few years ago.

    Indeed it is. Fair enough. I've nothing but time so I may as well.
  5. Fine thanks and thanks for the follow back
  6. After some thought, I guess I was incorrect . It slightly pains me to admit that :laugh:.

    Starting adult gymnastics next week, universe willing.
  7. Ah, I see. Fair enough.

    I shall reply later. Though, you have hit upon something. Most types of ideologies that I can think of, I feel, fail in the real world.
    My initial instincts are certainly pacifistic though.
  8. Is this directed at me personally?

    In any case, I view pacifism as the objection to needless violence.
    You might say that most people are. But many choose to become enrage and add fuel to the fire.
  9. Interesting. I hadn't given it much thought. It does make sense.
    While I think it's generally ill-advised to desist from defending yourself if you're in certain types of situations, I think it's noble to try and cause the least possible damage.
    Still, I think my life/body has value and I value myself more than someone who'd needlessly attack me and I know what I'd do in those circumstances.

    Completely eh?

    I suppose I'm quite Jesusy in my thoughts.
  10. Fair enough .

    I'm open to doing a martial art though.
