162. I'm not required to obey your conditions to post a response to you.
As a matter of fact I'm not quite sure why I bothered to respond to you in the first place, but I suspect it was because of how absurd the proposition "provide scientific evidence that death is actually a penalty" was. All sophistry notwithstanding I think its pretty clear that people fear death. Forgive me if I don't go digging for a link to go prove that to you; it seems like a waste of my time. But it also misses the point that there is a utility to execution that there isn't for other punishments that people fear. Death and prison both remove someone's agency; death more finally and completely than prison.

Wingnuts oppose evolution because it threatens a dogma that they like. Thinking is not part of evolution of our species, which is driven by reproduction and natural selection.
