Fuck You mzsmbs.....read the text and listen to the telecast. Pat Robertson is one dangerous MF. He brings in BILLIONS to spew his BS over the airwaves and you are his lawful prey!

He is no different than Osama......less and except no terrorist attacks on his part to date.

You are pathetic.

Actually, you're pathetic for delivering an unmerciful slam toward an individual who used a little wit in delivering the same message you did. Try paying attention asshole.

If you read my initial reply, I referenced " the original langauge". That removes it from the real of my opinion.
The response after mine that stated that capitol punishment is murder is an opinion.
My post was to explain the intent of the original langauge.
To paraphrase Nietsche, there is no original text, everything is interpretation. Hence everything is opinion. Some opinions are more widespread than others.

How can anyone know for certain what any word means. This is why God can never reveal anything to anybody. The listener always has to interpret God's word.
Does this apply to mathematics? Is y = 2 * x open to interpretation? {inhales deeply}
Damn, those Scots always ask the tough questions. Although Nietzsche was a linguist and not a mathematician, I think the answer is yes. It's just that math, being more abstract than everyday language, is a much wider held opinion. I think the best example might be Euclidean vs. non-Euclidean geometries.

Looks like I might be coming your way next May. I'm looking at teaching a course in the Scottish Enlightenment and bringing the students to Scotland (If I get enough enrollment). We'd probably read Hume, Reid, Hutcheson and Smith and do a little work with Hutton's geological ideas.
Have you read the book, 'How the Scots Invented the Modern World'?

Nietsche was wrong.
Wqords do have meaning, unless you advocate the total meaningless of life.
Something ironic about about a philosopher advocating a position the logical conclusion of which is to invalidate his own position.

It seems to me that mathematics is on much stronger ground than mere words, because mathematics strives to remove ambiguity with careful definition of its symbols. Words on the other hand mean whatever we mean them to mean.

Nice to hear you are visiting - where will you be heading for? Edinburgh, for Hume et al., I guess? May is a good month, weather-wise, but I think I remember you saying you had visited before, so you probably know about the climate here!

I haven't read that book, but it is obviously a very important work! At last, recognition that eating porridge, playing bagpipes and other forms of self-abuse is productive.

I friend of mine keeps pushing a fellow named Emmit Fox, who he says is a Scotsman. Have you heard of him? Is he a philosopher or a moralist?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

"Making a terroristic threat" is a violation of federal law, if done using the airwaves. It comes under the jurisdiction of the FBI, not the FCC. We can all be assured that Bush has directed them to pursue a vigourous prosecution, I am sure.

If this is not a terroristic threat, I don't lmow what is.
I wonder if one of the Ayatollas in Iran made the same statement would that be enough reason for the President to invade and/or bomb the country? [xx(]
