    No, I'm not fond of Richard Dawkins, though I respect his expertise as a biologist.

    As for his stand on determinism, it has been echoed by philosopher Sam Harris, whose arguments (Science can answer moral questions) I find far more persuasive and compelling.

    I am indeed fundamentally opposed to the idea that everything we do is determined solely by our biology. If we were to take that to a logical conclusion, nothing we do is truly meaningful, since we are no more than sophisticated machines carrying out programmed instructions that we can take no credit for. Indeed, to me, it makes mockery of any attempt to even discuss morality. What would be the point, since nothing we "decide" is truly an expression of free will?

    P/S: Don't worry, I wasn't bristling against any alleged hostility. Was just laying out some ground rules for discussion as I don't have the energy to argue against people who aren't interested in exploring key ideas more broadly. Hence my preference to keep this out of the public thread, as I'm pretty sure most would misunderstand what I'm working towards.

    I refuse to comment further in the Gay Issues thread because I've long since gone past the "rights" and "wrongs" of the argument and have no wish to derail the thread with a discussion that is essentially about ethics, not homosexual issues. You are welcome to read the current exchange of visitor messages between Ledgem and myself. I say again that I'm not up for debate over this matter. I've stated my views and am willing to answer requests for clarification, but would kindly ask that you keep your peace if you disagree with my views. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind. I'm merely speaking my mind.

    Hi, about the post wrote in the US election thread, John Huntsman was criticized unfairly and what he said is legitimate Chinese. But I over simplified my rebuttal and that kind of weakened my own argument. I wasn't plan to rewrite the post and make a technical dissertation on Chinese grammar and word usage out of it, that's why I take the easy way out. Sorry about that. :P

    Sweet thanks for the info

    Do you study up in nutrition for fun or is it a job?

    Thanks for the links I'll look more into them later today I'm wondering if there is an article that would give me science facts about all the minerals and how it affects the body. An example would be: Maganesium which can be found in whoel grains or any green leafy vegetables. It is an enzyme cofactor and ATP bioenergetics. It helps plays a role in the nervous system. Stuff like this interesting read for me since I'm a biology major.

    Can you give me a link for nutrition? I thought some of the information you posted was interesting.

    No problem, did you have a nice birthday?

    I can't wait for the 3DS one either, it's going to be nice to go back to basics after Super Paper Mario.
