I have a question for you...

Quote from:
Not that I'm going to read back and actually read all this again but from what I can recall nobody said it was.


Um, well, ECH did.

He didn't take to Zurtok's criticism of the OP's ever-so-deep questions, or Zurtok's reaction to trollax's nasty little rebuttal.  Or so it seems.

TGRR,
Bearer of inconvenient truths.
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."
- Frank Zappa

Quote from: Zurtok Khan


First:  Your attempt to be mystical or enlightened is absurd.  Please, don't try again.  It will produce worse results next time you try it.

Second: you're asking US about angels and devils?  Why do we care about make believe creatures?

Third:  Why are you attempting to dabble in useless generalities.  There are many thought patterns that are learned, and there are many that you are born with.  Trying to make it an all or nothing proposition is absurd.


Sorry, Trollax.  I gotta go with Zurtok on this one.

You can do better.

Since when is seniority a criterion for rants?

It might be if people were getting paid to write them, but around here.....it's not.
just like in a dream
you'll open your mouth to scream
and you won't make a sound

you can't believe your eyes
you can't believe your ears
you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

TGRR,
Is still waiting for the check for sermon #1.

And put that one in the mail.

Quote from: The seer
It has multiple ways of being asked. Bear in mind they are all the same question, not different. Let me repeat that: bear in mind that they are all the same question, not different. And again: bear in mind that they are all the same question, not different.

If angels can fall, may devils rise?
Are all patterns of thought inborn or learned?
If you believe you are right, then everything you say is right?
Can a lepoard change its spots?
Is there any redemption?
Is nobility defined or inborn?


There's actually two answers to this, but they are both the same answer: yo and nes.

Meh...

My mind's already pretty sore so it's not in the mood to be fucked again, but, good questions.

With most of these things, the question matters far more than the answer.

I disagree.  Especially since you're demanding we accept your statement without proof.  For example, you could have taken the following six statements and shown their relationships to each other.  Lazy bastard.


Quote
If angels can fall, may devils rise?

Please define your terms of "angel" and "devil".  It seems as if a causal relationship between the rising of one and the falling of the other is tenuous, at best.

Quote
Are all patterns of thought inborn or learned?

You appear to be excluding the middle term, not to mention using the sweeping generality of "all".  Naughty, naughty.

Quote
If you believe you are right, then everything you say is right?

Putting aside the fact that this is a sentence fragment,  you appear to be conflating perspectives, and poorly defining the second half of your statement.

Quote
Can a lepoard change its spots?

Biologically, no.

Quote
Is there any redemption?

From what, exactly?

Quote
Is nobility defined or inborn?

You appear to be excluding the middle term.  Again.  Also, you need to define "nobility".



Hope this helps.  Next time, eschew obfuscation.
