I think what you're saying is liberties, not rights. Civil liberties are not civil rights.

While I don't think that makes him racist (because people who aren't racist make those kinds of comments all of the time), I think you have a good point that someone can be either mature or immature and vote for practically anyone. My cousin voted for Hillary and she is a very immature lady. If you ask the right people, you will find that people who voted for either Trump or Hillary can be either smart or dumb. Otherwise you are fitting people into stereotypes, but an intelligent person doesn't think that way.

Now to DBCooper, I also don't say "all Muslims are terrorists" because an intelligent person knows there are all levels on any spectrum in any demographic you can pick. But I agree with your general point, and I do agree that there's an average based stat for anything.

Evolution is not an explanation of how the first lifeforms evolved. Atheists have a completely different explanation of how lifeforms first evolved.

Firstly, it's already known that evolution requires an environment and an organism that can reproduce.

As soon as you have the first bacteria in existence that have reproductive capabilities, plus early Earth, you can have evolution.

Your assuming evolution is how all species were created. It is not. It is how humans and all the species that came later were first created.

At some point it all leads back to bacteria. They say DNA was found in asteroids. They theory is an asteroid landed on Earth and created bacteria through a chemical process that evolved into everything else, which was billions of years ago.

A scientist did an experiment based on this to see if he could create life with electricity, heat, and some basic chemical elements. He came very close. He ended up with the ingredients for life, put together in a read gooey substance, but not life. But under the microscope, magically we had chemical substances that existed in every lifeform on Earth, none of which were there as the initial ingredients of the experiment (you can Google this).

Exactly. This is my hypothesis at least. And if someone is truly insanely good they will be better regardless but in some cases they won't be. Either way the person who was given a huge head start doesn't deserve the extra skill now do they?

It's probably the root cause of antisemitism. It may not be the branch cause, but that's ultimately the root cause. Look at the history of Jews living in other lands for thousands of years.

My debate assumes the machine is conscious. I'm exploring the possibility of a conscious machine.

People who discredit Jews are just pissed because Jews have achieved more for society than they have:

Anyone here who says a single person who's Jewish mentioned in these lists did not achieve what the article is saying they did, or that they secretly did not achieve it, is just subconsciously jealous because they can't achieve it themselves and neither can someone who isn't Jewish. If you don't agree, I dare you to cite a single source that proves otherwise.

I must ask though, would land mines stop anyone from going in? It might be less expensive and quicker than a wall. I think if one is really in the center of Mexico, the ocean is out. They'd have to be to the far East or far West of Mexico or else why not just take a plane?

Or they could use social engineering to trick the guards into letting them into the US? Or they could just take a plane.

Then the machine doesn't really want to kill, it's just an incidental automated killing. If it doesn't want anything then how is it conscious of itself.
