I guess it is still you and me...

What are the maximum capabilities of a Type 1 civilization?

We have the right to freedom of speech in this country. This is fully expressed in the allowance of Porn in print as well as on the web. Some places on the web are a little backward and don't FULLY understand such things as our Bill of Rights. Just a little fact I thought Id let you in on....{smile}


Why don't you share some of your favorite porn sites ID?
You seem like the type who'd have quite a list of online sources to compliment your print porn collection.

Hmmm. I have a few, rather rough sites though.
I don't think I could share them here.

Hi Robert.

If you watch a picture of God with a gun in his right arm on that web-page, my best guess is that freedom of expression or speech is not necessarily the same as freedom of "belief".

Meaning that such a picture may go well for some people who are supposed to believe, but not so well for others. The same may very likely happen to those of us here who are either agnostics or atheists. They may either like or dislike this picture.

My best guess is that religion is not anything better off when such ideas of creationism are being displayed or portrayed.

Thinking a little about it - I guess you may be right on this since it was me that mentioned the Devil. Still ...

And all web sites have TOS. edit- {smile}

Acronym Definition; TOS: Teacher Over Shoulder (chat) TOS: The Original Series (Star Trek) TOS: The Other Side: TOS: Type Of Service: TOS: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome


Define...

Steve gave you the answer. And Dont pretend you dont know.


I did not pretend. I asked you to define.

Why make rational posts when you can post lists of Disney movies?

From the list of films that ID has published he has extended the accepted definition of "pornography" in his usual manner. Perhaps he should withdraw from "our civilised Western Society" and join some order that espouses his rather remote-from-reality views?

From the Oxford on-line dictionary:

Definition of pornography
noun
[mass noun]

printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate sexual excitement.

OK, so no cookie, but if that is not the correct definition of "pornography" then what is?

Why not? - Is it we have reached the limits of your ability to reason, or are you just a coward not prepared to admit that you have no logical basis for your classifications?

I would now classify you as "coward".
For your information, my definition of "pornography" goes along the lines: "material, printed, visual or audible, that is produced with the anticipation that it will produce a state of sexual arousal in its audience, or is of such a nature that it produces a state of sexual arousal in an unintended audience".

Oh, even the best pornographic pictures (of women) are being regarded as "obscene", aren't they?

Rather watch the birds and the bees.

Check out the title of the thread. What was in the original post?

I think the discussion has decidedly turned away from my original intent.
If it is not rerouted, I shall have the thread locked.

Mark,

The ACLU says it speaks for the Constitution. I find that laughable.

I don't find it very amusing at all..........

I should rephrase the question to ask what percentage of the US population purports that the ACLU speaks for them?

The only separation of Church and state is the one that forbids one Church to fit all at the federal level. As I have said here before Jefferson held Anglican Service in the Halls of congress. FULL SERVICE, not just prayer.

So he rented the building BFD.
