Getting past the silliness of this headline, it makes you wonder about the beliefs of people who created this. Do they believe that a Christian minister is nothing more than flesh and blood? If so, then it would make sense that they could make a robot to do exactly what a Christian minister to others. Since people with that mindset would see no spiritual side to what ministers do , then creating an automated priest would do the exact same thing.
A priest is someone who comes between God and man and represents man for his best interests. The Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Episcopalian denominations have priests. How could a robot actually an intermediary between God and man?
The concept of a guaranteed income has been around for a while. The Swiss considered it. The Finns tried it in small measure. The Communists abandoned it. It never worked, but apparently there are people who want to see it working a capitalist context. What evidence is there that it will work this time?
Soderbergh seems to believe that people have a guaranteed income, they would be willing to take risks to try new business ideas. Some may do so. Some may simply game the system. And others might simply continue to seek after losing ventures. After all, there would be little risk in failure.
Now that we are establishing healthcare as a universal right, as wrong is that may be, here are now ideas of how to establish other lights , such as guaranteed income.
Katy Perry said some stupid things this week about how loving everyone will stop Islamic terrorists in their tracks. This Navy Seal has a great comeback for that.
But beyond that it makes you wonder Why such things are even said in the first place. After all, we know that the Navy SEALs comment is more true than Katy Perry’s comment.
I believe it is because, in some questions, there is great peer pressure to conform. It seems to be very prominent in Hollywood. The fanbase seems to be extremely liberal, so the actors and actresses want to appease their fans. They know that if they speak differently on this topic , they will be ostracized. That doesn’t make it right, but it does make me wonder if they believe the kinds of things that they say to the public.
This should not be news to anyone. Unfortunately, it is for people who have bought the lie that women and men are interchangeable.
People are always telling us stories of the way things ought to be. If it conforms to reality, then society will conform to it. But if not, people will eventually turn to reality, not theory.
I truly believe there are people who sit around in a basement to make these things up. In their minds, it is offensive, even though probably no one has ever complained.
These days, many people are conflicted about abortion because pro-lifers have done a good job of underlining the fact that it’s a human life. And so people who are in favor of abortion as a birth control method struggle with the whole topic of abortion. Many times, I have heard this same mantra, that, while I would not have an abortion, I wouldn’t rule it out for someone else. This is nothing more than an illogical attempt to to ignore the fact that human life is involved. If having an abortion has no more moral significance then going to the bathroom, then there’s nothing to worry about. But if a human life is on the line, it has grave moral consequences.
The X news anchor on the blaze Tommy Lauren gives an interview here where she talks about her views on abortion. She was fired for having views that were in favor of abortion. Notice the muddled thinking. This often happens to many people in their 20s who have not yet formed a full ethical and moral view of the world. Notice how her arguments go all over the place. Also, notice how she never actually deals with the fact that there is a human life involved.
The pro-life movement has had to deal with this mentality for a long time. Many times, people want to take a middle position between being pro-life and pro-abortion. But there is no middle position.
I especially like the fact that she says she wants to make abortion safe for both the mother and baby. Abortion is never safe for the baby.
