Re: Southern Boarder

I used to live there and know Venezuela's situation rather better than "misogynist white Jamie who knows best" Over the course of our debates you've been a Liberal Democrat David Cameron supporter who was also a Labour Party member who voted for ...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

Human welfare has absolutely increased. Not to be rude, you are denying reality if you think otherwise. We can go back and talk about Malthus...and the belief that increasing population would lead to starvation. We were supposed to have starved long before now. We have avoided this fate through incr...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

I think my reason for linking them is that in the absence of proof (for example of the twin prime conjecture) you have to take it on faith. (Ok in mathematics, they might start with 'assume the twin primes conjectures; then...' and go on to prove other things. Which I guess isn't what most people w...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

The second video on "Ignorance" is interesting enough...but it was a bit all over the place. It was also perhaps a bit too ideological rather than sticking to specific philosophical concepts. I have some sympathy for some of the things mentioned...but in the end I wasn't really sure what to take out...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

There is an effort, that I have seen many times, to suggest that since maths (or science), can't answer everything...then I can disregard them when I feel like it. This is postmodernist nonsense.

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

I am not really seeing the connection between the first video and the other two videos. While I do like Veritasium videos at times, he is presenting the topic in a bit of a click-baity way. The video is discussing the limitations of mathematical proofs. When he says "Truth =/= Provable" he really me...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Where are you getting this "one outlet" from? There are signatories from lots of media outlets (e.g. McLean's, CBC, Burnaby Beacon, Toronto Star, 660NEWS and many more). The article itself mentions that one of the signatories had received reports from journalists at multiple publications about this ...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Isn't this a tad oversimplified? I don't think it is just racism. There is also religion, culture, and propoganda. But I stand by my point. Jamie is right that people should care that Palestinians are being killed in huge numbers. Ethnic cleansing has been mentioned. But they don't. And they haven'...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

But tax payers seeing their money being taken and used to give weapons (for free) to Israel, which uses them to murder civilians on a wholesale basis , should annoy anyone who isn't a Zionist.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

It is frustrating that the Palestinians can't realize what an incredibly poor negotiating position they are really in. What makes you think most Palestinians don't realise this? Because many still are asking for things that have no chance of happening? Israel isn't going away, "right of return" ain...
