Hugh,
Are good and bad rigid and diametrically opposed to each other?
The answer is beyond your ability to understand. Right now there is good/Hugh and bad/EVIL/eric and you cannot tell the difference. You are equating or almost equating both. Shame on you JOEL.

Now, let me see who gets this post deleted.
LOL.
Joel---I have the knowledge and the reasoning skills and the inner experiences needed to completely screw Judaism, if I choose to.

Hugh--- That would be a double screw as Judaism has already screwed itself. Its teachings are known and its disciples e.g. the lowlife Eric continuously reminds everyone that it is not a "religion" where RIGHTEOUSNESS is taught. Instead lies and deception are its pillars.

I have NEVER encountered people who lie and deceive like them not even among SECULAR people.

HughBe ---Let me ask you, what would you recommend by way of punishment for 12 men with BIG BAMBOOS who RIPS your REAR apart in a context that it was not consensual between adults and then cuts your throat?

Joel---I am totally opposed to the death penalty under every and all circumstances.

Hugh--- Position noted.

Joel---There are other ways of punishment that're punitive as well as reformative...

Hugh--- Go back and read my original words and ANSWER what you have been asked.

So, instead of beating around the bush like a girlish eunuch why don't you get straight to the point and tell me what is wrong with my definition of wrong that I am re-posting below.
JOEL'S DEFINITION OF WRONG:
Wrong is anything that disturbs the peace of society, destroys the harmonious rhythms of nature and retards the progressive evolution of the individual's consciousness.
1. Eunuch? Interesting, coming from you.

2. Do 2+2 = FOUR?

Ok, that's typical middle class entertainment - all noise, excitement and razzmatazz.
I had a great time with friends yesterday night in the classy Zodiac Grill in the Taj where we thoroughly enjoyed a classic 7 course French meal served table d'hote style. The ambience was understated but so elitist, the food was out of this world, the service was extra-efficient and the guests as expected were the posh and refined South Bombay (SoBo) types drawn from Malabar Hill, Carmichael Road, Breach candy and other snobbish areas in SoBo.
Anyway, once again, Happy New year to you and family.
Ditto i.e. wishes for 2014. Also you should try the simpler things in life and when you do you shall be surprised by the benefits.

Have you ever considered that the same meal eaten under a TREE could be far more enjoyable?

HughBe--- This type of behaviour by Frijoles underscores a good reason why you should ALL leave Judaism. It has nothing to do with righteousness. Let the fellow PROVE that I am responsible. He can only FALSIFY such "proof" and he is capable of doing so as such is his manner.

And, pray-tell what do Frijoles and I have to gain by deleting posts that we wish to cite. Contrarily, you Hugh are the one who challenged us to produce the posts that turned out to be deleted.

Experiences, on the same subject, can lead to different, sometimes, opposite results.
The phenomenon can yield different results based on perceptive acuity and environmental factors but the experience of the underlying noumenon (or of the typal principle) remains unaltered each time.

IGNORANT TOURISTS DISTURBING ANIMALS IN THE WILDS:

The African wilds draw millions of tourists each year who visit these untamed tracts to get a firsthand view of the great variety of wildlife.

In the bargain, the governments of Africa make millions out of these tours into the wilds.

This safari tourism is damaging to the eco-balance and the hordes of tourists, mainly White, are loud, brash, ignorant and highly emotional and besides the jeeps that take them deep into the jungles are noisy and polluting.

All this must stop and the forests and wildlife reserves must be declared out of bounds to gawking tourists.

The WWF, UNESCO, NG and other organizations must put on added pressure on the African governments to end tourist forays into the wilds and adequate compensatory funds should be handed over to the African authorities to ensure that this human predatory menace ceases.

The wilds should be left undisturbed and animals and tribes inhabiting the wilds should be given space to flourish as they have been doing over thousands of years.

People are part of the environment too, and if the tourist industry fizzled, the park protection and local economy would fizzle as well.

Where is the data that the tourism is damaging? I would like to read the studies.

How do you define eco-balance? How do you operationalize this construct? How do you measure this?

Reversal of a ban on safari tourism is always undertaken due to monetary considerations and big names having a vested interest in eco-tourism use bribes and political influence to overthrow well thought out bans into forested ares or into protected reserves.

Keeping wild animals in zoos and in circuses should also be banned with immediate effect. I can't bear to see tigers, lions, leopards, apes, deer, bears, peacocks, crocs and other faunal forms trapped in zoos and confined to cages in circuses.
