Oh, and just to make it final:

The moderators are all fantastic people. Every last fucking one of the rest of you are deluded, arrogant cunts, and I hope you all die in a fire, with your childrens' entrails dangled before you as the last thing you see.

A Parting Swing

Just dropping a note to thank NSG for its contribution over the years. You know, closure and all that. I learned next to nothing from you, but you inspired me to learn much in the futile attempt to relieve your steadily growing ignorance. Once upon a time, General was a place where people with well-...

BP and Justified Terrorism

Kyoto. Copenhagen. America, notoriously, doesn't care about the environment. And yet today we have the government acting all high and mighty on the need for environmental safeguards, new low-carbon fuel use and the accountability of British Petroleum for the damage inflicted by their operations. Sud...

As blatant an attempt to open Godwins on any form of socialism as Self-Esteem is pulling, there is a legitimate point in pointing out the historical origins in Left thinking of the German form of National Socialism; namely, in Hegel's Philosophy of Right. You see clear elements of the march of histo...

Inventing religion is difficult, since all religion is basically personality cult with political structure and esoteric metanarrative. Firstly and foremostly, religion grows out of a person or group taking charge, being audacious and drawing positive attention to themselves. Manufacturing it is abou...

Don't worry; it's just a plot to rescue Cameron's image among the "Blessed Chris"es of the conservative party. He doesn't mean it.

Existence for the sake of existence is liberating! It is also immensely irresponsible.

You know why socialism works in Norway? Because its people take responsibility for the functioning of the country, and don't try to exploit everything that comes their way without due respect for each other and the future.

This has nothing to do with "meaning" and everything to do with what spirituality is to begin with. What is its ontology? You want to deal with ontology prior to understanding? I find this an odd notion. We don't say "there is XYZ" and then shoehorn everything into XYZ whether i...

As for omnipotence, it is an unnecessary fiction. Oooh, you're missing the real power of omnipotence in the discourse of religious justification. It's the lynchpin of facilitating unusual action, because as a self-conflicting notion, it's what renders conventional logic inappropriate in normalising...

You're still going to want to say that we can interpret the Will of God, though, right? Otherwise, it would be crazy of God to make commandments. If by interpret them you mean do what they say. Yeah, but "what they say" is an intentional thing; it relies on our grasping what it is they wa...
