Re: Ex-wife takes down husband's suicide note from the inter

I read this man's suicide note and it gave me a knot in my stomach. The letter reads like alphabet soup-- I keep waiting for him to make a coherent point, something concrete to back up any of his emotional wafflings, but it never comes. This man clearly has some sort of mental disorder. As others ha...

Re: World's Oldest mom dies

My concern is this woman may have reversed the natural order of things. And we can't reverse the natural order of things! That... that would be... unnatural! And things that aren't natural are bad!

But this isn't the point that's causing so much upheaval. Whether the discrepancy is due to nature, nurture, or both - you'r...

Re: Study recommends total ban on smoking for soldiers

Why not tell the soldiers beforehand that smoking is not allowed, and forbid them from smoking so that they will become unaddicted? And turn away fresh new recruits? Probably not in the army's best interests, especially considering their target demographic. I hear what you're saying, soldiers would...

Re: Hypothetical Abortion Ethics

I think it all depends upon what your stance on abortion is before the fact. The abortion argument comes down to when you believe human life starts (at conception, at birth, etc). If you don't believe that life starts at conception, that the embryo is not a "person," then this hypothetical...
