If you had the power, would you kill all who were racist or evil?

    Just think about it for a second. If you had Infinite power on your hands, would you make it your duty to kill off people who discriminate against others, or who are just plain evil?
    Strange question from an atheist and objectivist. If one had Infinite power one would be a God in the supernatural sense. An atheist denies the existence of God, and an objectivist only recognizes the validity of an object, phenomenon, or condition in the realm of sensible experience independent of individual thought and perceptible by all observers. So either your claims of atheism and objectivism are phony or your question is.

    But, in answer, I'd say that if I had Infinite power, I would not kill off such people - I would fix their malfunction - if I cared to take the time to do so. I'd be very busy...

    If God is all-powerful, can he create a stone so large He cannot lift it?

    Cliff's notes version - phplords.net is a phony, and believes semantic wordplay and superficial scratchings at the meaning of human behavior to be deeply philosophical.

    No. The only way to know dark from light is to have a birds-eye view of it. You have to be outside of both.

    How are you so sure that the side you're on now isn't the dark side?

    "Luke. I am your father. Come over to the dark side of the force and we can kill everyone. Search your feelings. You know this to be true."

    "Nooooooooo!"

    I'm with Luke. I'll never join the dark side.

    If anyone can counter the fact that the Europeans have demonstrated themselves superior by walking all over everyone of every other race--please let me know.

    Only way black people survive in America is through Affirmative Action and welfare, and there are stats to prove that.

    *sigh* Taken too literally apparently.

    "Using that logic". How about that?

    N/M, pointless thread anyway.

So much is being outsourced out of the US and Europe (mostly to India, Sri Lanka, Korea, Indonesia, and the Phillipines) because labor is cheap there.

    Racism exists solely in people not who refuse to recognize that beneath the skin, beyond the eyes, we're all human.

    S. Africa, BTW was won from the 'elite white' where the Africans were being impoverished...

    ...more later
    In South Africa, the government changed, but every day, despite this, the Whites grow richer. I read a very recent article about this on the BBC.

    You don't understand the concept of racism. It has nothing to do with color, but with genetic makeup. You put a white person on a tropical island and their skin will darken in color. They're still white in race.

    Whites being the one that can "force" others into poverity just proves they're superior and can force anyone they want into anything--doesn't it?

    Of course labor is cheap in these places. Nobody in the US or Europe would get into such a horrible job. Leave it to the lower peoples, right? You can pay them less because the whites are worth so much more, at least that's how I take it.

    There was racism and discrimination long before the mid-19th century. By the time of Darwin's Voyage and the publication of "Origin of Species", the United States was already heading headlong into a war about this very issue that threatened to tear the young country apart and in some aspects still does today. Five hundred years earlier, serfs (white serfs I might add) were being discriminated against and racism abounded in Europe and the Middle East. Just ask someone who fought in the Crusades about the Moors and Saracens. Two-thousand years before that there was discrimination and racism between the Egyptians and Nubians or the Jews.

    To attribute racism and discrimination to a theory and book that is less than 150 years old is naive at best.

    And what's wrong with discrimination? It's just to make a distinction. I treat some people differently than I treat others based on a great deal of factors and situations. I treat a Japanese person differently than I treat a Dutchman because of a great deal of cultural formalities which differ depending on the person. Does that mean I should die for discriminating?

    But murder, that's the only evil that transcends all of this and you even thinking about it shows how evil you are. You would yourself die if you killed all who were evil.
    So using your logic, who the hell are you to judge us, or anyone else for that matter? What makes you so special?

We started to learn all about survival of the fittest, how the best adapted creatures were able to survive. Well, while all Europeans were living great lives and colonizing every foreign land. Look at a map of the world and most of it has, at one time, been ruled by a European power--people of white descant. People of other races of other lands have never been able to accomplish much of what whites have done. Whites industrialized the world, they unified it, they conquered it. What's more interesting, is that most colonial possesions weren't giving up by losing a battle, but just by giving them up. Look at most of the African colonies, those were just given up. The US gained its independance, but that was Whites fighting against Whites. In South America, most of the key fighters and leaders fighting against Spain were in fact of Spanish or other European heritage.

    Most of the world lives in poverty, but when you look at white populations over the world, they're always among the elite few. Travel around the world a few times, you'll see this yourself.

    Now you can understand why people can see, through history, why racism exits. It also exists on a smaller scale in several regions. The Japanese counquered most of Asia, and Koreans and Chinese still harbor a lot of resentment towards Japanese colonial rule (which it picked up by westernizing). People are naturally racist. Look at minorities groups all over the world and you will see they naturally stick with their own kind and breed with their own kind. Interracial marriages happen, but at about the same rate they have in the past. A great example of this happening is in Macau. In America, especially, immigrant groups stick together.

    Did anyone else think of Hitler when they read this thread? He claimed that he was cleansing Germany, that he was getting rid of the evil and the bad, in addition to the ones who made society 'less perfect.'

    Stooping to the level of those you're against is hardly anything to be proud of....
