There **are** methodologies which limit and eliminate the human bias from our own limited senses.
I already mentioned several.
Your pathetic attempt at dodging this is duly noted.
More: your use of the SOCIAL COOPERATIVE EFFORT that is the Wikipedia?
Proves to 100% that you are a hypocrite's hypocrite!
Wiki **requires** civilization with **rules** and **cooperation** to even exist!
And you just blithely use it as if you were not a hypocrite!

Have you been spending too much time with "Skeptic" again?
I mean seriously...
Do some research and learn something outside of your [email protected] box for a change. Or just keep on doing as you are told pretend that you have control of your life. Bitch and moan about religion because apparently other people's beliefs are the only thing that matter to you. Otherwise you would not keep trying to everyone in your box..

Does that mean they aren't singing?
Someone is singing in Europe right now? Do you have proof or are you just guessing at the possibility? It is just as possible that nobody is singing in Europe right now.

I'm prepared to handle an illegal search and seizure. They'll have my guns when they pry them from my cold, dead fingers. More likely, they'll recover them from the hot, greasy hands of the local street punks who rip them off while I'm away at work. Whatever. As long as they knock first ... and I'm at home ... and awake ... I'm prepared!
Of course, if 'Our President' declares Martial Law and sends troops to my house then it won't be 'illegal' in the strictest sense. Could I shoot an American Soldier following his or her orders? I don't think so. Could they shoot me? With Mom's Apple Pie practically oozing from every pore and orifice! I hope not.
It becomes clear that every good American should bury a cache of weapons and ammunition somewhere safe. That way, archeologists in some dim, post-apocalyptic future will know that we were all nuts.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAA...

Says the guy who declared the Davidians "criminals" for not throwing their hands up and relinquishing their firearms immediately upon request. Hypocrite.

You are confused. The legal gun owners who have registered their weapons, again...at the "reasonable" insistence of the gov't, will be targeted for weapon confiscation. The unregistered guns of criminals will be harder to find.

FYI, "our" soldiers have been trained to fire on U.S. citizens if the situation "calls" for it. Hesitate to relinquish and risk being mowed down. Ask a young soldier in your family if he was ever asked if he would have a problem gunning down a citizen if told to. This aspect of military "training" has been going on for close to 20 years now so I'm not blaming it on the current Liar-in-Chief.

I'm not surprised you waffle in your claim to balls. I'll never go down without drawing blood in self defense. Laying down and dying without a fight is for wussies.

Well it's certainly typical of a hypocrite to backpedal once they realize they've said a bit much. I forgive you. Also, your placing words in my mouth: I never said death was a good thing, I said that sometimes it is better than the alternative. I continue to live on because I have people that love and need me, in particular, a couple of elderly relatives who rely on my help quite a bit. I don't expect you to understand that because you apparently have zero empathy, rather just a set of ingrained knee jerk reactions and paranoia. In fact, you seem like quite a horrible person, sorry to say. I sincerely hope that when you become old and infirm, that you have someone who will care for you. I am somewhat worried about you in that regard, considering your personality. After all, many elderly are just chucked into institutions and kept sedated until they croak off. Well, they say it's never to late to change, and some people do need to change if they want expect to have someone willing to change their bedpan in their twilight years. Good luck with that.
I didn't say too much, you did, Ms. Gloom and Doom. Get therapy for that "I shoulda been aborted" fantasy you have going on there, soon.

I'll never see "structured care", or get feeble, goof. I'm going to retire to a very primal region of the Earth and die as I live, close to Nature, my body cycled through the birds and the bugs. No mouldering in a dark, wet grave hoarding my mass for a grinding infinity.

No resentful eldercare anthropoids scrubbing my old diaper up my nose like I've seen them do to the elderly on YouTube. That is not how we were meant to go; helpless, abused and despised.

Good luck with your self-esteem issues, you're gonna need it. That is, unless, you're just spewing that crap as a ploy to encourage more people to kill their babies, then; it's "shame on you".

Free-thinkers my ass. Narrow minded douche bags is more like it.
The internet is a socialist tool. lol . Bob is a socialist tool. I do not mean a tool as in a device or implement, esp. one held in the hand, used to carry out a particular function. I mean a tool as in a stupid, useless or socially inept person.
If there weren't laws against murder Bob would probably have a field day. He says that he can live with out a "higher power" but obviously not. His "god" is his government which he apparently can not function with out.

I have phenomenal reflexes so fright is just a chance to show them off. ;)

And the opportunity for solitude, quiet moments...to think uninterrupted for more than a couple of minutes, come so infrequently that I cherish them when they do. Owning our own thoughts is all we really have in this world.

What kind of person who wants to live says that they should have been aborted? A pro-abortion activist or someone suicidal, that's who. Either appreciate life or stfu about wishing you were dead. Stop trying to make other people believe death is a positive thing.
You are disgusting.

Seriously.. your hate and bigotry just **screams** from every one of your filthy posts.

The ones that don't merge with an egg don't count, just the one that did. That one became an entity.
You don't know what you are talking about. Many of our physical characteristics are determined by an interaction between genes and the environment.

I do not go to church, Ms KKKristian-wannabe.

I haven't been inside one in years, and have no plans to either.

As for Jewsus? He's just a figment-- not real.

And I do not claim to "love Jesus" -- I leave that for you homophobic hate-cultists.

Who, ironically, claim to "love Jewsus"... when it's just your own narcissism.

No, stupid, they are not optical illusions. The light is reflected and refracted by water droplets.

<quoted text>Anarchism does not mean chaos.
The word Anarchism comes to us from the Greek word &#7940;&#957;&#945 ;&#961;&#967;&#959 ;&#962; which literally means "no rulers". Anarchism is, therefore, a society built upon the foundation of non-coercive free association of all, guaranteeing freedom of thought and action.
Anarchism is not kids throwing rocks through windows and causing chaos. It is practical, contrary to popular belief. There have been hundreds of thousands of societies throughout history we would now consider to have been organized along anarchist principles - including most indigenous societies. Compared to hierarchical authoritarian societies they typically were and are much more stable and afford their members dramatically higher standards of living. Anarchism is self-organization created by consent and mutual association, without coercion. It is not mob rule, statism, or tyranny.
So, grow up and leave your mom's basement once in a while instead of sitting on the internet spewing hate at everyone that does not think the same as you.
What you describe could never work--- all it would take? Is a small group who has better arms that any of the locals.

And it all comes crashing down.

You are a naive idiot-- an idealist without a clue.

I used to be a strong libertarian (the old, original one--not the TeaBagging azzholes of today--who are religious) until I realized that it could never work. I read all of L. Neil Smith's libertarian novels about an idealized libertarian society-- it was wonderful stuff.

But it was pure-D fiction too-- never work out. All it would take is a few armed and dangerous azzholes to muck it up for everyone.

Grow up. You are living in a imaginary world of delusion.
