    Ever heard of DOTA 2?

    About a month ago there was a tournament where the team that came in first place prize received $5,000,000. The team that came in second place *only* received $1,500,000!

    I’ve never played DOTA 2 (not interested in MOBA’s), but seeing that insane prize money made me wish that I did.

    “Capital Punishment, the Death Penalty, should be used on all convicted murderers, rapists, molesters, pedophiles & kidnappers…Even though the possibility exists for the innocent to be executed unjustly, the alternative is far worse.”

    LOL… what a great idea!

    Does kidnap = murder, in your mind? I mean… you are aware that a parent with shared custody can technically be charged with kidnapping if they don’t have their kid(s) back on time, right? In your mind I’m sure that person’s life is a worthy sacrifice to stop all evil once and for all though… hahaha.

    I find it hilarious that you think you can stop, or even reduce the amount of evil in this world by killing people who commit certain crimes. You’d have to destroy every human on the planet, and even then evil would still exist.

    I suggest you read a bible.

    Wow, I don’t know if it’s disgusting or hilarious, to see that someone who proposed a justification for incest has so many thumbs up.

    This is why religion is a joke to so many people.

    Slavery was ok, until it wasn’t. Incest was ok, until it wasn’t. Having more than one wife was ok, until it wasn’t. Taking females and children as property after defeating your enemies during war was ok, until it wasn’t.

    I could go on… but it’s not worth the effort.

    “Since Adam and Eve were the first (and only) human beings, their children would have no other choice than to intermarry.”

    Proof please? The bible doesn’t say that they were the first and only human beings, and more importantly, the bible doesn’t have a monopoly on the origins of human history.

    It’s never been my opinion that science is “wrong” (though I do see it as an inherently biased and limited discipline), I simply dislike that people often conflate scientific fact and objective truth/fact.

    “Science is not like a religion. No one “believes” in science like people “believe” in god.”

    I’m not exactly sure what you mean when you say that, but it seems slightly condescending. It’s not as if all the people who “believe in God”, do so, as a child believes in the Boogeyman or Santa Claus.

    Not just that, but there are actually plenty of people who do “believe” in science. I personally know people who “believe” that the theory of evolution is true because “It seems to make sense.”, yet they themselves haven’t even studied the theory.

    “Science is a game of probabilities – we try to garner estimates of how likely one theory may be versus another. But, crucially, scientists never come to a 100% consensus about any theory. I think many religious people have difficulty understanding such a non-cemented, fluid way of thinking about how the world works.”

    I don’t live my life based on scientific theories that aren’t easily understandable or demonstrable. Take gravity for example; simple and easily demonstrable. Evolution… not so simple, and not demonstrable in the same way as gravity.

    “A virus can do more damage and destroy more of any population than any war. It has no cease fires, it does not discriminate, it has no sense of time, no reason or empathy, no political or religious beliefs.”

    Is it weird that I read this in Kyle Reese’s (good guy from The Terminator) voice? It reminded me of his rant about how awful the Terminators are.

    @808Patriot

    “Consensus requires 100% agreement.”

    Uh, no it doesn’t. Consensus is defined as “a general agreement”, not “100% agreement”.

    Pedantry aside…

    “Since this is impossible, are we to fall back on a dictionary definition? Definitions describe but cannot assign value or determine the mores of society. Accurate language but without context.”

    I don’t understand what the definition of pornography has to do with anything I said.

    “Porn addiction does not affect only the viewer. There are ALWAYS other people affected so how do you get the consent of everyone involved?”

    We weren’t talking about the ramifications of watching porn. We were questioning wether societal/personal morality should infringe on the freedoms of adults who wish to engage in mutually consensual behaviour.

    “Should we ask the wives or children if the husband’s/daddy’s porn addition is okay with them? Should we ask the boss of the porn addict if the employees addiction is okay during business hours? Should we ask the people in the video if they approve this particular viewer watching this tape?”

    That’s up to them to figure out.

    “Porn is always wrong; there is no circumstance that makes it even acceptable let alone good.”

    Right, but that wasn’t really the topic at hand. Besides, what is your solution? Ban all porn? That will never happen, and even if it did, it wouldn’t make porn addicts into “better people”.

    “When a country goes to war civilian casualties are expected. War is not and should not be pretty. It is not a matter of deserving or not deserving. Wars are won by bringing destruction to the enemy and forcing him to surrender. Usually this takes civilian casualties to make this happen.”

    I agree that civilian casualties are almost always an inevitable part of war, but I don’t think that makes it any less unfortunate or disgusting when it happens… especially since you can bet some of those civilians may have been against the war, or those responsible for it in the first place.

    I’m not against the US (WW2) or Israeli strategies per se… I just wanted to know if TexasKnight would mind seeing his family members killed as a result of the actions of the US government.

    Were the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima the most efficient way to end the war with Japan? I think so, but I don’t think the murder of thousands upon thousands of civilians was the “right” thing to do, morally speaking.

    @DLV

    “No they didn’t deserve to die”

    I don’t think they (9/11 victims) deserved to die either, but the people who planned and delivered the attack seemed to think that they did.

    “One thing to note though is that the Palestinians and Japanese support their govt while a huge portion of the American people does not support the corrupt govt. they get in by corruption.”

    Comparing the Palestinians to the Japanese is like comparing apples and oranges.

    The Japanese (military) attacked a US naval base during a world war, and the Palestinians (the terrorists among them) have been attacking (assaults, murders, firing rockets) civilians and military in a country that they share a border with, even during times of peace.

    As for your notion that the Palestinians and Japanese supported their governments while a “huge portion” of the American people do not, I’m going to have to disagree. Of course, I don’t have numbers, but I think that the majority of people in the US support whatever their government does when it comes to war or other big issues. If you need evidence to back up how stupid and complicit the majority of Americans are, just look at who the president is.

    @TexasKnight

    “When your government starts a war, your civilians will pay also.”

    The US government has started (and meddled in) plenty of wars, so do you think you and your family deserve to die because of the actions of your government? What about 9/11? Did those people all deserve to die?

    “Jex-Blake added that her husband is not the father of her kids and has only known her body the way it is now. She said he loves her body the way it is.”

    It sounds like her ex and the current chump (who shacks up with a 33 year old woman with 5 kids?) are probably supporting her kids.

    @Molly4561

    No offence, but if you knew he was watching/addicted to porn, why did you marry him?

    Also, in my opinion, porn is similar to alcohol. Some can watch it with very little impact on their mental/social/sexual life, and some people (those who are prone to abuse/addiction or other destructive behaviour) should just avoid it entirely… especially if they’re in a commited sexual relationship.

    @Airb0rne4325

    “Question: who decides what is pornographic for whom?”

    The definition is generally decided by concensus, and/or defined in a dictionary.

    “Maybe it’s the Libertarian in me, but if it is not illegal and it is two consenting adults who am l to say what they can do to each other?”

    I agree, but I think we need to understand that there are “normal” kinds of sexual behaviours, and then there are “deviant” kinds. The reason I don’t like homosexuality (and other similar kinds of deviant sexual activity) is because I think it’s disgusting, serves no greater purpose, and it’s generally a destructive lifestyle… but as you said, if it’s two consenting adults, who am I to say?

    The only problem is, many of these deviants try to “normalise” their sick behaviour, and push it on society (especially young and impressionable kids), and while I don’t think we should send people to jail for mutually consensual deviancy, I happen to think that Russia is on the right track with their “anti-gay propaganda” laws.

    “Well I know that masturbation is a mortal sin, but is there honestly a person here that hasn’t done it?”

    I haven’t… in the last 10 hours!

    Haha, seriously though… masturbation as I understand it, is not a “mortal sin”. This belief comes (no pun intended) from people reading a specific commandment in a particular instance, and applying it as a general rule for all instances.

    @georgiagirl50

    “People can’t help what color they are born into.”

    That’s true, but the problem I (and many others) have with blacks is “black culture” (or lack thereof), and the black crime rate (compared to other colours) rather than their skin colour. When a group of people are so disproportionately violent and crude (young black males in particular), it’s only natural that people will start to distrust, and eventually dislike this group.

    Yes, it’s unfortunate that the civilised blacks share a common physical trait with black thugs, but it’s better to be safe than sorry in my mind.

    “The notion that they watched their friends dying beside them so that trolls like you could make asinine comments like that is truly a disgusting thought.”

    I’m not a troll; I simply just stated a fact. I don’t really care if that upsets you, or anyone else.

    As for your rant about my name, it’s merely my personal way of separating the smart/insightful people from the stupid/rash people, and I’m sorry to say this, but from what I’ve read from you so far, you most likely fall into the latter category.

    If you don’t understand why you’re in the latter category, then I’m 100% sure of it.

    “No it is a wormy little lieberal like you trolling the net to show what an ignorant piece of crap you are”

    I’m not sure what a “lieberal” is, but would you care to provide proof to back up your claim that I’m “a wormy little lieberal… trolling the net to show what an ignorant piece of crap [I am]“?

    I tell you what… I’ll settle for you conceding that your statement was simply an opinion with no factual basis.
