Why do so called Muslim refugees have to find solace in Christian Counties instead of other Islamic nations? It seems that the Christian God is mightier and more magnanimous than his Islamic counterpart.
I see different arguments on this site on religion. People fight and fight about controversial topics like God being real and other things. It's not only on this site. Iv seen it on YouTube to. Atheists and Christians bashing each other for what? Do you think people should keep this war or should people put there differences behind them and either leave the subject alone or, even better, just give and exchange of beliefs to the different sides?
"A Kentucky county clerk petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday for an emergency order allowing her to continue to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples, a move coming two days after a federal appeals court rejected her request.In a related move, a federal judge refused to extend a stay of his own ruling requiring the clerk to furnish marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples while she appealed on the grounds that her religious faith overrides her duties as a public servant."[source](http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/08/29/us-usa-gaymarriage-kentucky-idUSKCN0QY02V20150829)So this woman, a Kentucky county clerk, believes that her religious freedom is violated by being required to personally sign same-sex marriage licenses, which go against her beliefs. Do you believe that she should be forced to sign the licenses or be removed for her position, or not, and why?
How is labeling Conservatives as racist different from racists labeling all Black people?
Racism comes in all forms and the Liberal Left is at the top of the heap when it comes to the racist mentality. How many times have your heard people in the Democrat party, or people on this site, label Conservatives as racist? When you call Conservatives racist, you are making blanket statements about people with no proof or evidence to support such ludicrous accusations. It is no different than the idiot remarks from true racists who hate all Blacks because of their skin color.... lumping them all as being the problem.So tell me what Conservatives have done to support your argument that they are racists. Tell me the planks in their politics that supports your ludicrous claims.When I speak to the problems with Liberals, I speak to the things they support in the Democrat party. I give example after example of the things Liberals support when they elect Liberal Democrats. Are all Liberals pro choice? There may be a very very few Liberals who are not pro choice, but then why would they vote for the pro abortion party if that were true. Is not life and death the most important priorities when one votes for a party?So if Conservatives voted for a Ku Klux clan member today, I would agree they were racists! The vast majority of Conservatives would never vote for a true racist. There are of course a few racists in every party such as Black racists against Whites, terrorists who call themselves Democrats, etc.Where are your examples of how Conservatives are racists when they have Black men running for the Republican presidency. Conservatives love Ben Carson!You constantly show your mindless Liberal rhetoric as you judge and ridicule Conservatives and paint them all in the same light. WHERE'S YOUR PROOF! I constantly give you my proof when calling out Liberals to who they are and what they support with their vote.Stop being racists by labeling Conservatives with little proof of your accusations.I will use the instant ban button if I hear one mindless claim that voter ID is a racist thing. Proving our citizenship should be an obvious requirement for electing our leaders when we have so much fraud, illegal immigrants, etc. It is no way a racial thing.
Is this the secret to Trump’s success?
By LeRoy Lane
For The Register-Guard
...I see three main reasons for his rhetorical success,
which continues to build after his performance in the Republican presidential
candidates’ first debate on Aug. 6.
First, Trump makes excellent use of an argument Aristotle
called the enthymeme — an argument that most effective persuaders naturally
adopt without purposeful design, but with a good understanding of human nature.
The enthymeme is one of four syllogistic arguments —
categorical, disjunctive and hypothetical being the other three.
All four arguments have three parts: major premise, minor
premise and conclusion. For example, the hypothetical syllogism looks like
Major premise: If Donald Trump fails to become the nominee
of the Republican Party, then he will form a third party.
Minor premise: Donald Trump will fail to become the nominee
of the Republican Party.Conclusion: Therefore, Donald Trump will form a third
In the “Rhetoric,” Aristotle wrote: “Whenever men in
speaking effect persuasion through proofs, they do so either with examples or
enthymemes; they use nothing else.”
The enthymeme differs significantly from the other more
formal syllogisms, with the prospect of greater listener influence.
In the enthymeme, the major premise is not expressed but
implied, which makes the argument less complicated than the other three and
easier to follow; because listeners can perceive that the omitted premise is
implied, they can mentally supply it themselves and, in a sense, complete the
argument by which they could be persuaded...
Is the enthymeme the secret to Donald Trump's success? See
the other two reasons LeRoy Lane gives here:
Does it take a certain level of intelligence?Is it ALL just a matter of perspective?For those who can't ascertain what is and what isnt, can they gain the ability? Is every thing we perceive a unique experience for all or are there some experiences that we can all share?If someone responds to this , is it just me controling that with my own perception?"Perception Determines Reality"This phrase is driving me nutsSeems contradictory and circular.I have only received fallacious responses from the people who use it, whenever I put them through a line of questioning. WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN? D:What do you think it means?Why do you think people believe it to be true?A belief such as this one puts up huge walls in communication...among other things.
