I'm surprised my nation is the only one which has no banned groups or organisations, though individuals can be arrested if they plan illegal activities like human trafficking, murder or public violence. Our strategy to counter extremism is with education and assistance. We firmly believe in the free...

Swindenland is very stable, because our system is based on random selection and division of power, we believe that sortition is the most fair method of selecting who should rule, it prevents corruption, because we constantly change random people in power and it prevents the nation from swinging left...

In this thread, I have so far: 1) Demonstrated that people are naturally selfish and that they have no material reason not to be 2) Demonstrated that religion uniquely offers to society the service of convincing everyone of an immaterial reason for which the rewards and punishments for good and bad...

Because there is no proof. It's like having a large locked treasure chest in front of you and you don't know what's in it. Then someone comes around asking: 'Hey pal, what is in this chest?' And even though literally anything could be in this treasure chest, you say: 'It's God.' There's countless p...

Why would one neglect the existence of the triune God and His love and help for you? The only true religion (Catholic Christianity) is necessary for the salvation of every human. Outside the holy mother Church one cannot be saved except in rare circumstances. In these circumstances however the soul...

Why have we not at any point in the history of science discovered the faintest hint that a God could is real? Why does religion explain God's existence only with things we do not yet know? And if christianity as a whole is true, why have so many claims in the bible been proven wrong, does this not m...

Having read many reponses in this very interesting thread I have noticed two main arguments in favour of religion that I will attempt to negate: 1) Social cohesion/unity I mean okay, but even secular and irreligious societies have good social cohesion. Secular societies are based on mutual respect a...

And of course, we cannot expect to fully understand a being such as God, or his actions. This is a statement that cannot be said to be true or false - it is what Popper would call an unfalsifiable statement. This is problematic, because we cannot prove or disprove it, it's pure opinion. You assume ...

Pretty much the same stuff in three, somewhat destinctively altered, variations. The Islamic belief is that all previous religions are corrupted versions of Islam, and that Islam is the one true message. Except it is not, because just like all religions it claims many falsehoods, hence it is at bes...

Now I don't want to sound like a nationalist, but Slovenia and to some extent the Czech Republic are the only Eastern European nations that are compatible with Western European countries and their values.

Ideally you would want your child to use the computer ASAP and then teach the child just how much better computers are than mobile phones. That way your child can get his phone quite early but won't care about them.

I suggest we kick all Eastern European countries out of the EU except for Slovenia and the Czech Republic ;) The EU won't exactly prosper with the morally (and soon fiscally) bankrupt Western ones either.

Absolutely not, religion does more hard than good. Certainly, if you have a religiously homogenous group of people such a society may feel good, because it isn't changing much - but that in my perspective is not a good thing. Firstly religion suppresses any non-conformism, if you are an atheist in a...

Well that shows the minor concern of unemployment is justified. The real question is what's keeping the robots from saying "fuck this, I'm taking over" and screwing over YN's humans or whatever your people's species are? That's way to negative and pessimistic for my taste. How did Earth g...

Most misfortunately I have to agree. Although with better education and more graphic public safety adverting this process might be accelerated.

Well let me be frank, screw any religion. All religions are equally false and a means to control people. The Ekhnukhid dynasty has long living members only because of better access to resources.

There are a lot of good and bad things that can be said about Catsfern, the nation firmly follows the utilitarian philosophy, has a liberal drug policy and an equitable distribution of wealth, but misfortunately it is very imperialistic and has presidents for life.
