Quote from HighrollerI think compared to the Civil War, we're doing just fine.
Quote from HighrollerIndeed, I think what we're looking at is, in fact, a growing amount of people who do not identify with either of the major parties.
Quote from UA livesIf there is a God, (who knows if there is) you would have no idea what it would or wouldn't do, or how it's laws could be formulated or justified, definitely wouldn't be able to hold it against human standards.

Quote from PlaguefatherI would've breezed through the competition and not made an enormous fool of myself on national television...

Quote from brasswireHonest (perhaps ignorant) question: If both people are falling down drunk, and they have sex, how do you determine if rape occurred? And further, who raped who? If neither person was sober enough to give consent, then are they both guilty of raping each other?
Quote from Ophidian EyeObviously, this situation could be avoided with verbal consent, but do we blame the first party or culture more?
Quote from DirkGentlyOf course you can't prevent anything 100% of the time - locks example, identity thief example, etc. But a certain amount of common sense on the first few dates - stay in public places, don't get overly inebriated - shouldn't be very intrusive and could definitely protect you. You're probably better off avoiding a lot of drinks for the first few dates anyway, but that's just my opinion. I'm not saying it's your fault if you want to get drunk, but I'm saying if your goal is to avoid getting raped, not getting drunk is probably a good idea with someone you don't know well.

Quote from HighrollerI mean think about it, people plan things around other peoples' actions all the time. If we can do it, why not God? God is infinitely smart, after all.
Quote from IcecreamMan80Again though, I must ask - do you believe in a God that created the Universe with infallible foreknowledge of all events, the "end before the beginning".
This is actually an important question, because I believe it makes or breaks the entire premise of free will.
