It is can be either- whatever direction they are given re strategic policy of the government of the day.

Think about it... the US does this with its allies so I listen to your people and I listen to yours and then we trade the information.

And therein lies the crux of your problem. You have the inability to understand that life is not black and white, but a pallette of hues. In your world, either something is fed you by a white conservative god, or it is wrong. How curious that your concern for "black babies" evaporates at birth. Where is your care for them as you withold healthcare, education, due process under the law, equality of opportunity, etc., etc., etc.?

Arguing over a name is pointless and stupid. Debating the concepts we hold is important because it is the concepts we have of 'God' that frames our whole world view and determines how we respond to each other, nature and the universe. IMO the dominant world 'response' of Western man is extremely destructive to say the least.

Based upon the onus you place on their backs, why do you call them "victims"? Please explain. A woman has been repeatedly abused by her husband over the years. She walks into the police station, finally, seeking protection and relief. CF looks at her and says, "What are you prepared to do to change to help your situation?" First of all - she has taken the first step and is at the damned police station. Second of all, that she has survived as long as she has is a testament to her personal...

[Sarcasm] Don't you know, MBM? Pregnancy is God's punishment against women for being whores and sluts! We shouldn't allow for women to have choices over their bodies, God wants men to use the righteous arm of law to decide things for wimmin. They don't need no help once the babies are born. Being single mothers in poverty is God's punishment on them for being loose. [/End Sarcasm]

Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

Personally, I believe there is some truth to this...especially the part where the author advised men to "never listen to what a woman says -- always pay attention to what she actually does instead." I would modify that to say that as a guy, one should not only hear or listen to what a woman says but also observe and keep note on what she does...much more telling and true. As to the role of money and the need for sex as items of attraction women see in men...both are factors but I think it is...

I am a weak atheist and an agnostic (no, they're no mutually exclusive), but I practice taoist philosophy. I don't believe there is an onjective meaning to life, but that doesn't mean life itself is meaningless. Rather, it opens the possibility of the individual creating their own purpose, if they so chose. With the knowledge that all we have is the here and now (although religious taoists may believe in reincarnation), the toaist focuses on experiencing the beauty and goodness of the world,...

Hmmm...that's probably due to Augustinian influence in Christian thought. Modern Christianity took Augustine's philosophy that the material world is something of a "curse", and that physical bodies are crass and disgusting. Many Christian basically view the body as little more than a prison for an idealized fluffy, wraith-like soul. That's why I find Tantric Buddhist philosophy on the soul so refreshing. It goes beyond this Cartesian Dualism of "body" and "soul", and it describes the body...

Sometimes the two concepts confused in this discussion (not this one specifically but this issue) is linguistic gender and biological sex. One cannot argue from the first to the second.

They have different conclusions about the world to begin with, thus they have certain differences in their worldviews, which is part of the point that I made originally.
