Because women are programmed by the Matriarchy™ to reduce men to a humming tube full of "C" Cells!!!

It's HORRIBLE, the reductio-gynocentric female gaze phallo-objectiflisnatzhartz which women with their evil womany woman ways turn all that is wonderful about a man into a plastic doo-dad that they can blithely and emotionlessly toss into the nightstand drawer. Sniff!

At least the MEN, the poor victimized matriarchy-abused men, who are still holding on to a shred of their dignity under the weight of the female oppressor, still cry out for a sliver of the humanity their fem overlords have denied them, by purchasing (or, I suppose, renting....yuk) a full body animatronic substitute-- of their cruel oppressionatrix!

Not the women, no, no, not the women. With their emotionless casual lack of regard for all that is good and decent, they can turn a man into a battery operated orgasm dispenser, and nothing more. And when those batteries are dead, what do they often do? THEY THROW THEM OUT, THAT'S WHAT.

They probably don't even use rechargeables. Sigh.

Yes, Yes. I blame the Matriarchy.

It's everywhere you have authoritarian control freaks telling consenting adults what to do.

And it is certainly worst where fundamentalists rule.

Some people seem to believe a lot of idiotic shit.

Some people seem to believe that stay at home parents are lazy dropouts who do nothing except encourage consumption and chauffeur rug rats to unnecessary lessons, when the little monsters should be raising themselves unsupervised, as they did in the good old days.

I don't "feel" superior, I *am* superior, Jack.

Anyway, you've made it perfectly clear that this isn't about a cogent objection to anything in the cartoon (remember... Your OP?) but rather a vigorous exercise in you grinding whatever axe it is that's not sharp enough to get the bees out of your Ostara/Ishtar bonnet.

(how's that for a mixed metaphor?)

I'm not interested in helping you further in that endeavor.

As for the Tao, work it out yourself. Or don't. The Bible tries to pass off illogical, contradictory nonsense as genuine wisdom, the Tao passes off genuine widom as illogical, contradictory nonsense. The Bible resents ridicule, the Tao DEMANDS it. Which is why its jokes are better.

Chew on that.

So, like I said, thank you for your concern.

If it wasn't for heartfelt, thoughtful and sincere expressions of concern, of course, DU would verily and single-handedly drive the public discourse into heretofore horribly dangerous regions where Krakens and 7-headed monsters lurk.

Another example of people who don't understand- and seemingly don't want to understand- science.

Some people are apparently genuinely pissed that the solar system they learned about in elementary school in 1955 is not, actually, how things are.

Tough. If Pluto's a planet, then so is Eris. So is Sedna. So is Makemake. So are a whole bunch of yet-to-be-discovered Kuiper Belt Objects, probably numbering in the tens of thousands, if not more.

I understand that this 'argument' is a little facetious and supposed to be cute, but it points up a REAL problem the general public seems to have with getting their heads around science; namely, that the job of science is to give us constantly better, more detailed, and more accurate descriptions of reality ("maps", if you will) that are ALWAYS updated and revised as new and better data comes in. That's how science works. Problem is, too many members of the general public confuse whatever map they've been taught, usually at a young age (it's worse with folks indoctrinated into fundamentalist religion, of course) with the actual "out there" reality. So they don't understand not just why "Pluto doesn't get to be a planet anymore" but why the explanation and understanding of our solar system is far more rich, detailed, and interesting than it was 50 years ago, and worse, they're incredibly RESISTANT to the updated, more detailed understanding, because it's more comfortable to reside in what they "know".

Eris is bigger than Pluto. Ask the "Pluto People" whether Eris should, also, be a planet, half of them will go "Wha?...."

That's maddening.

Again, it's important to define terms, something many THEISTS seem practically allergic to doing.

People also like to dodge the question by going, "oh, I'm an agnostic". Yeah, I'm agnostic on a LOT of things for which there's no objective evidence; leprechauns, unicorns, the tooth fairy. As far as I'm concerned, the jury's still out, in a sense. Evidence could come along at some point to tell me that, yes, there is an invisible 500 foot tall orangutan living on my roof.

Even the question, "Do you believe in God", frames a duality pertaining to a singular, objective, mutually agreed upon and at least generally defined entity where none such general consensus exists. Or to put it another way, which "God"? How about you define the friggin' thing before you expect people to say whether they "believe" in it or not?

Is it "very stupid" to say you don't believe in the Greek Gods? The Roman Gods? Quetzlcoatl? Pan? Eris? Ra? Osiris?

I'd like to see the actual Sagan quote, along with context, please.

You're assuming that people are what they present themselves as online.

Let me give you a brief recap of some of the events that have come to light in the past month or so, all oddly focused around that group and the 'drama' that has played itself out there.

(Please note that the only "members" I am naming names of have all been BANNED from this site or DU2, so I am not bad-mouthing any legitimate active members of this forum)

"Survivoreesta" was banned as a repeat disruptor both on DU2 and DU3. According to Skinner, this was actually a MALE troll, pretending to be a "woman" with serious mental issues.

"Sera_Bellum" and "Feldspar" were BOTH banned after making bigoted transphobic statements, diligent research on the part of attention-paying members revealed that this entity or entities (either one woman, two partnered women conveniently sharing an IP address, or maybe again, a male troll pretending to be both) had previously shown up under the names "Sargasso_Sea", "Evolve_Already", "Ittakesavillage_people", "TAPat" and who knows how many more.

Now, this is my favorite one: After several weeks of vociferously complaining that people were accusing her of not being what "she" was pretending to be, it turns out that "Remember Me" was our old friend "Eloriel" ("remember her"- get it?) who was also "Morgana LaFey" and who knows how many other incarnations.

Beyond the mind-boggling confusion of what may be a male troll with several identities pretending to be a feminist woman who makes bigoted transphobic comments, of all things ( ) I think maybe the element you're missing to all this is that for whatever reason there have been some serious weirdos with multiple identity issues who have fixated on that particular group. Maybe what admin wants, or at least the current host wants, is some co-hosts who actually are what they claim to be, so some of the attendant bullshit around that forum can be allowed to wither away.

In Other News: Crack Addicts Decry Cost Of Crack, Demand Cheaper Crack As Solution To Crack Problem.

Repeatedly Insist That The ONLY Solution to Crack Problem is Endless Supply of Cheap Crack, No Other Solution To Crack Problem Can Possibly Be Imagined.
