Technology & Information / Re: James Webb telescope launches!

Are the targets mostly quasar/pulsar/magnetar type objects?

massive irregular/peculiar galaxies that are at the limits of what hubble can see. one of CEERS' primary goals is to better understand how galaxies evolve over cosmic timescales — how do galaxies accumulate mass over time? how often do they crash together? how do their shapes evolve? what role does star-formation play in all of this? those sorts of questions.

tom am i correct that you think the left supports late-term abortions because we just viscerally enjoy killing? are you of the opinion that we support it because we want the baby to develop as much as possible before we kill it because we take pleasure from the idea of killing a child?

be real with me here.

i'm extremely skeptical

That is nice, but being skeptical is not a form of evidence.

lol skepticism is the default position fam. it is your burden to prove the claims you're making are true. extraordinary claims (i.e., vaccines are causing people to drop dead) require extraordinary evidence. your evidence amounts to a wikipedia page about soccer and a couple of sources who outright lie about their own data.

He said athletes, not only soccer players.
actually, he said, "...a couple of athletes per month used to die on the football field or on the soccer pitch. Now we're getting hundreds each month dying."

i do not believe this at all. cite a source. even if he's talking about all athletes everywhere, i'm extremely skeptical that hundreds of them are dropping dead of heart attacks while playing each month. hilariously, the other "sources" you cite do not back up this claim.

"trust me, i'm a doctor" is not evidence of anything. and if your source is willing to lie and simply make up numbers, then i'm not sure why i should trust anything else he has to say.

a couple of bar graphs
my brother in christ, this is not analysis. it's just a couple of bar graphs — at least one of which was made by a source that is outright lying about its own data (ha ha should be called badsciencing amirite).

there is no way people are lying on youtube
lol what

lol aside from the fact that this is absurdly illogical, you're just creating a legal loophole for literally every man to get out of having to pay any child support simply by saying he wanted to get an abortion.
Not necessarily. There are ways of implementing that idea which do not have such consequences. Assuming the least generous possible implementation of someone else's stated principle is not a very honest way to debate.

like what?

you stated that if the man wants to get an abortion and the woman declines, the man should be off the hook for his child support obligations. i fail to see how such a system could possibly avoid the consequence of "any man who doesn't want to pay child support to a woman he has impregnated can simply request that she get an abortion."

"oh so you support the right to abortion, but you also support the right to dislike deadbeat dads??" is not exactly the brutal takedown y'all think it is.

If the man wants the woman to get an abortion, and she declines, he should have no obligation (legal or social) to 18 years of financial support for a child he doesn't want.

lol aside from the fact that this is absurdly illogical, you're just creating a legal loophole for literally every man to get out of having to pay any child support simply by saying he wanted to get an abortion.

see y'all this is what i mean about centering the debate on "when does a fetus become a person." that debate cannot be resolved because there is no intrinsic discontinuity between fetus and person.

what matters is the biological relationship between the two. a fetus is literally a parasite. it is physically connected to the mother, and — unlike nearly all other mammalian fetuses — it is in virtually complete control of the mother's body. it takes whatever nutrients and biological resources it wants to from the mother, at will. lmao it's not like, a fucking roommate or something.

Purpously killing a zygote is no different than purposely stepping on nest of turtle eggs. You colloquially killed a bunch of turtles when you did that. It doesn't really matter how mature they are. The were developing to hatch at some near future point. They would have become amazing and majestic sea turtles, but you stopped that by killing them. There is no justification there.

my brother in christ, if a sea turtle connects itself to your blood vessels and starts leeching vitamins and minerals and shit from your blood, you are absolutely justified in disconnecting it.

i don't get why it matters if it's a person or not. no person has the right to force me to donate any or all of my body to sustain their life.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Let's use the site-wide theme in CN
« on: April 26, 2022, 01:55:12 PM »
that you would even suggest changing the CN theme means you should resign as site president effective immediately and retroactive to 69 AD.

imo just let markjo keep his thread in the lounge. or move the original now playing thread to the lounge to markjo can post there. or let markjo post in all the lower forums's. or ban all users but markjo. or whatever.
