Perons A -If you believe in a deterministic world then a given person couldn't really choose not to commit a certain deed, so he shouldn't be punished for it.

Person B -In a deterministic world the people dealing out the punishment couldn't have choosen not to punish him either...

...so the world still keeps on going round the sun!

Go to: 'Uncontacted tribe' sighted in Amazon

I just love the "racism" that so many so gladly desplay when it comes to this tribe.

"They should be left alone", "we shouldn't interfere in their habitat", "the nature and life of these tribes must be preserved"!

What are they? A new species? They're people and have the same rights as any other, born in the jungle or born in the city capital.

The "west's" modern anti-imperialism has turned into neo-racism.

Personally, I find it revolting.

Go to: Storm erupts over 'virginity' divorce

Seriously, I see nothing wrong here.

She lied to him about something that he thought of as very important. Why the courts need to annule the marriage is beyond me, but him getting a normal devorce, that would be the normal way to go.

We shouldn't get all worked up for nothin. And this, this is nothing.

Nice... well done RD, and, as said above, smooth.

To bad though, that there's no video.

Making a video should be a demand from RD's side in my oppinion. This given that one can add, on top of the numbers in the audience watching live, another 30,000 viewers on youtube.
