    Violators, reports, feedback?

    Yes. I, too, think Burgess is a good moderator. If the software will not allow the warning bars to be shown in public, or it does not allow an efficient back channel for moderators, then I would like people not to forget this post:

    The wording of the consciousness axiom?

    Ayn Rand is the best. Did she teach you that jelly beans exist?

    The Dark Side of Conservatism

    Thank you for making this post. Here is an e-mail exchange I had with TIA Daily concerning this: From: Daniel Hayden [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Thursday, January 06, 2005 12:38 AM To: TIA Daily Subject: Just a quick line here. I am 47 years old. If my memory does not fail me, I first heard of Whittaker Chambers as being involved with the Communist Party and the founding of the United Nations. I had never seen this review but, it looks like a late 1950s hatchet job. ---Dan Dan -- Chambers was indeed a former Communist, who later turned to the right by embracing Catholicism. All of which makes the selection of him as the author to review Ayn Rand all the worse. -- Robert

    "Explaining" the Tsunami Disaster

    When I am in one of my darker moods, I can imagine the United States as having a machine to send a pulse through the earth to dislodge a tectonic plate thus causing it to shift, cause an earthquake, generate a tsunami, and hit'em below the belt. Maybe I read too much stuff like THIS. As far as providing money to them, this just plays into the hands of the intenational banking cartel, the ones who own/control the Federal Reserve.

    Libertarians

    I have had several friends who ran on a Libertarian ticket. The party is much easier to get on the ballot in. My occasional involvement with politics in that party shows me no specific underlying philosophy. The people I know that have run as Libertarians were Libertarians more out of frustration with the Democratic and Republican parties than aspiring to a particular philosophy. There were some Objectivists among the Libertarian candidates I have known. There were also some Fundamentalist Christians among them. None of them ever got elected.

    Hello everyone

    Welcome, Eric. There are several people on this forum that are interested in physics. I am one although my knowledge of the subject is limited at this time. An interesting thread on this forum is Cool Site. This is a test that tells you what philosophy you believe in. It is really just an advertising gimmick of sorts but it is fairly accurate.

    The wording of the consciousness axiom?

    Spoken like a "true" Objectivist.

    Immorality

    If an adult Muslim blows himself up in order to kill a large number of non-combatant civillians because he thinks Allah will reward him in paradise with 72 virgins for destroying infidels, is this an immoral act or merely an error of knowledge?

    I sometimes visit The Photo Forum. There is a picture of me posing in front of a sign, and the ensuing thread, HERE.

    The wording of the consciousness axiom?

    The best way to prove that the axioms of Objectivism are not valid is to deny them. If you do not exist and you are not conscious and you are the same thing as a bag of jelly beans then what are you basing your argument on?

    flying car in development

    I just noticed on the AOL news page today that there is an article on Paul Moller HERE. The link to the company website is HERE.
