    You were in high school in 10,000 BC?

    Your posts easily qualify as the dumbest I've seen here, and that's really saying something.

    6 billion, DUH. You obviously knew that is what I meant, right? Or are you one of those people who have to try to make themselves feel smarter by convincing themselves that they are smarter than someone they randomly run across on the internet?

    Yup. I'm so smart I know how to quote posts and how to review my replies before I post them. Apparently, you don't.

    This is college? These posts are going to be graded? Published? lol People like you crack me up!!!

    I don't care. I'm fine with the occasional error ending up in my posts because that helps to bring out the forum PR1CKS who apparently NEED to feel superior by pointing out those mistakes as if it makes the person an idiot or something. lol


    Sometimes people choose instead to crack a joke, allowing everyone to have a little fun with it. But no, YOU, you made a conscious choice to be as big of a pr1ck as you could be to someone you just ran across on the internet? Which is fine, that's your right. I've been a pr1ck before, the first step is admitting to it, and then making an effort to stop being a pr1ck. OR, go on being a pr1ck if that makes you feel better about yourself, I suppose?

    Either way, honestly, I don't care.


    I might care about your opinion about compassion and evolution and their relationship to each other?

    You're arguing with a guy who thinks the world's collective knowledge begins and ends with the U of MN, who thinks that if it exists outside that one university, it's not worth knowing. He also claimed that he could've gone to West Point for school, had he wanted it, and then didn't understand the connection when he was told that his posts are clearly not made by someone smart enough to attend an Ivy League school. He's a myopic troll who tries to sound smart in the process. Sadly, it seems to work on far too many people.

    I don't believe that about the U of Mn.


    Miami of Ohio? They ARE a very highly distinguished academic school. Considered one of the Public Ivy schools.

    I know there are a crapload of great Universities out there. All the Ivies, Stanford, MIT, Cal-Berkeley, etc.. And UMn is not that far behind those schools.

    Why don't you, instead of trying to get revenge for me ragging on SCSU, why don't you share your thoughts on the role or place of compassion and how it fits in with survival of the fittest?

    I was bragging about how UMn produced musical giants like

    Tay Zonday, with the Chocolate Rain song and others

    And I guess they thought that I was serious.

    Quoted a bunch of hockey stuff from a Ross Bernstein book, about UMners in the Olympics and in the NHL, apparently the same Bernstein book that JDubbs had read, because they swore up and down that I HAD TO BE JDUBBS.

    Was meant to be all in fun. Got out of hand, a large percentage of the fault was mine, started spilling over to other threads, USCHO deleted the entire thread. So I moved on or am trying to move on.

    NO, Kepler, its not a carry over at least not on my part.

    I came over here to have serious discussions. And just got neg repped because I told you about what went on over there to give you some context. But I did get carried away. So my bad.


    I should not have responded? I should have just ignored them. I will do that from here on out and assume that whoever just neg repped me is doing the same to the others who try to bring that stuff up over here.


    So Kepler, do you see what I am saying with my deer analogy? Am I wrong to think that overpopulation won't become a major issue in the future?

    What do you mean by "major issue?" Are you worried about a human population crash? The complete extinction of the human race? Something else?
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

    Was thinking about widespread disease I guess, but that could be because that stupid deer analogy is stuck in my head, lol.

    Don't think it would wipe out the whole human race, but it might wipe out a lot of people with weaker immune systems?

    I have not been paying real close attention to your particular discussions, but my understanding of culling herds is they are a greater long-term kindness because they prevent breakdown of the entire ecological chain which would in turn spawn tremendous suffering.

    What is your proposed analogy? Hunting humans for sport with ancillary population control values? I would not be in favor of that. There are better ways to address the same problems: free birth control to women with no conditions and no monitoring. Free, universal education of women to give them other choices in life. Give women the practical, every day ability to escape the brutality and imprisonment of men in their birth home, their married home, and in society at large. Universal rights to live and flourish.

    Likewise, we should use our technology to limit ecological damage: both to clean our nests and also to move humanity out of this one precarious box.

    All much better solutions than blam blam the tard is dead.

    Oh, no no no, that is not what I was thinking AT ALL. lol I'm not in favor of any kind of violence towards humans of any kind, whether its the Government or an individual perpetrating the violence, with exceptions of course. The cops have to use a degree of violence sometimes, but far too often they cross the line.

    And I'm not a fan of the Government imposing restrictions on things like how many kids we can have, etc..

    So the things you mentioned sound like good things to try.


    So it seems most of you think that compassion towards our fellow man, even to the lazy ones or the weakest ones, is ingrained in us, hardwired from birth and not taught? That its something that has evolved in us as a species?

    And I'm not arguing or saying that I disagree, I just know as a former military man, and as an athlete and sports fan, and a former business owner that in the military, in sports and in the business world, the world of finance, it seems that it is only the strong that survive, that there is little in the way of compassion shown to the cadet that is lagging behind the rest of the company, or the athlete who can't make enough baskets or the business that can't keep in the black because of competition eating into their profits. And this is justified because we need only the strongest and fittest soldiers, teams only have so much room so they want the best athletes and the consumer wants things this way or that way and will go where they get what they want, and so the businesses that don't give enough customers what they want adapt to the marketplace or close up shop.

    But yet most humans seem to not be able to take that cutthroat approach when dealing with lazy bums or criminals? Not saying its wrong, its just interesting is all.

    Really enjoy the show Black Mirror and I guess different episodes of that show make me wonder how long this compassion towards those types of non contributing people will last??

    I could so imagine an episode, if there hasn't already been one that I'm not remembering, where this exact issue is addressed and the way that show seems to lead, my guess is it might present, what would seem to us today, to be a harsh solution to this issue.

    If you're a former military man, then answer this: on the battlefield, do they train you that the best outcome will occur if every soldier just worries about his own personal survival and objectives, or do they teach that you need to work together at the platoon, company, and division levels?

    Think it might have been the same for a small band of prehistoric humans trying to survive the battlefield of nature? We are descended from ancestors who figured out that by working together, a village could be greater than the sum of its parts. Humans who preferred every-man-for-himself did not fare so well, so altruism is now baked into our DNA. We no longer have to band together to defeat sabre-toothed tigers, but humanity still faces an enemy that requires us to work together and look out for each other - ourselves. If we all started acting purely selfishly, that means no more stopping at red lights, no more property rights, no more governments. How long would we last under those conditions? We're not altruistic because of morality or religion. We're altruistic because it causes us to survive. Peoples without altruism were eliminated from the gene pool many millenia ago.
