Hello anidominus:

10 wives


Islam permits four, treated equally.

Taking this guy to a mosque after an Islamist bombing to defuse him


She liked the deep-pile carpet. 

We lock our doors because he might be a fool


That reads like paranoia!

Paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced byanxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs concerning a perceived threat towards oneself.

The Muslim community has a problem.  This community has been a concentrated source of violence for the past couple of decade


The United States is the 82nd most peaceful country.


It is less peaceful than the following majority-Muslim countries:
• Indonesia;
• Egypt;
• Morocco;
• Malaysia;
• Tanzania;
• Senegal;
• Tunisia;
• Burkina Faso;
• Jordan;
• Sierra Leone;
• United Arab Emirates;
• Oman;
• Kuwait;
• Bosnia and Herzegovina;
• Gambia; and
• Qatar!

4 Wives Treated equally.  lol.  Ok. Yeah.


Locking doors = Paranoia      that would mean about 299 million people are paranoid in america.


America is less peaceful than Egypt?  lol.   Did anyone tell all those illegal immigrants who are trying to come here?


BTW, how much freedom do those countries have relative to America?

In this thread, I am not talking about freedom. I am talking about humaneness.

A bank is at "peace" in two scenerio's.  1) Where the bank is free to conduct business according to the laws of the land.  2) When a bank is being robbed and no one dares oppose or speak ill of the robber.

Perhaps we need here a definition of the subject.

hu·mane 

 (hy-mn)

adj.
1. Characterized by kindness, mercy, or compassion: a humane judge.

2. Marked by an emphasis on humanistic values and concerns: a humane education.

The robber was kind because he didn't shoot a bank teller.


The robber was merciful because he didn't shoot the guy who tried to jump out the door right after he told everybody to get down.


The robber was compassionate because he didn't take the old lady's money considering it was "all she had."


The robber showed humanistic values by assuring no one would get hurt if they complied with his very simple wishes and then by not hurting anyone.  He even allowed the tellers to hand out candy.


Perhaps you'll "get it" this time around.

The International Court of Justice had this to say.

In these next paragraphs the Court finds nuclear weapons firmly under the moderating hand of international law. The opinion of the Court notes the general acceptance by the nuclear states that any use of nuclear weapons is "indeed restricted by the principles and rules of international law, more particularly humanitarian law. . . ." Paragraph 22. of the opinion, citing paragraph 86. 16 "A weapon that is already unlawful per se, whether by treaty or custom, does not become lawful by reason of its being used for a legitimate purpose under the Charter [i.e., self-defense]," and even self-defense is subject to the rules of necessity and proportionality. Paragraphs 41.-44. Any use of nuclear weapons must take account not only of the effects of the immediate use but also of the retaliatory use it is likely to engender. Paragraph 43. So any conceivable use of nuclear weapons would be illegal.

Peace is only as good as its definition, which is relative, and its limit is rooted in the character, which varies, of the people who define it.


You haven't provided a concrete definition of peace, nor have you given us a history of the people who are defining it, therefore, your statements about peace are worthless.


Egypt is a more peaceful place than the US, yet people in the US aren't setting fires to themselves, or causing riots  in an attempt to over throw our government.   Our government isn't having to fire bullets at crowds to keep them at bay.  Things like this don't happen over night.  There was something unsetteling happening in Egypt and it erupted.  Yeah, the people weren't in an active state of war, but considering what has happened now... what good was their peace?  All it did was hide and massage a problem that is now costing people their lives.


Can you hear me now?

Laws of robotics.

0. A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
