    oh so now you’re labeling me? What the fuck is a radical postmodernists anyway? You don’t even know me and now you’re trying to put me in a nice little box and pretend like you got me figured out. I don’t even understand what your question is. I can give you countless examples of arguments that have been made by people for the existen…[Read more]

  • @Davis There is no such thing as objective evidence for OR against the existence of God. It is all subjective.

  • @Davis I was honestly just following the rabbit trail of what YOU said in your post.

    You clearly don’t understand anything about his position on the Biblical stories. I’m curious to know how many hours of Jordan Peterson have you even watched?

    “Most” research psychologists are still learning how we can even reliably measure executive functioning.

    It’s actually stunningly easy and common to use strong reasoning skills when doing this and most do it every day.

    And what about those who don’t or can’t? What about people who have damage to their brain that impairs their executive functioning? What may be “easy” for you is nearly impossible for them. How can you honestly assert that “mos…[Read more]

  • @Davis

    Your original words were:

    We use reason and logic and clarity to evaluate just about every claim we hear

    I’m wondering if you could point me to the “peer-reviewed” literature you read that allowed you to make such a claim….I’m sure you used your reasoning and logical skills. And who is “we?” Are you referring to all human beings on t…[Read more]

    @davis I’ll be going la la la….my sister just suffered a horrible still birth and the hospital sent her home with a dead baby and said “good luck.” We may as well be living in a third world country. Burying the baby today

  • @Davis – Yeah, I mean I understand the whole argument and concept behind comparing God to something like yellow octopuses are pink unicorns on the moon or whatever. But as I’ve really thought this argument through it just seems completely stupid to me.

  • @Davis

    We might as well dismiss it as not existing just as we reject the existence of yellow Octopusses dancing on the moon or the existence of unthinking-cosmic-consciousness

    How do you get from point A to point B there just doesn’t make sense to me.

    @Davis I don’t believe any research can do more than indicate answers based on only those factors taken into account. Have all extant factors been taken into account? Who knows? What role does personal preference of a manager become unreasonable?

    Say I run a medium-sized business. I’m a distributor with about a couple hundred employees and a…[Read more]

    @Davis Sorry but I’m kind of confused about what your position is on this.

    @Unseen

    It sounds like you feel your progress is blocked where you are now. What would it take you to seek a fairer employment situation.

    Only time will tell that. Once I start working full time hours, options will be open for me that are not open for him. He has told me t…[Read more]

    @Davis

    A few problems with this study that jumped out at me:

    1. Although published in 2005, they took data from 1960-1990….That’s….30-60 years ago. Do you have anything more recent (like within the past 5 years?)…

     

    Secondly, it even says in the paper that “a continuous, even moderate equalization of the sexes is taking place…(p. 508…[Read more]

    @Davis:

    I’m super confused here, because the whole conversation was about people doing the very same work and getting the same results, and yet women get paid less. This is well documented.

    Can you provide me an example? Some sort of peer reviewed article that proves this to be fact?

  • Ivy replied to the topic Group logo of HumanismBaby steps in the forum Humanism 1 month ago

    @Davis

    I’m really fascinated by your claim that gender wage disparity isnt ALL about gender. I’m curious what possible factor outside of gender would explain gender discrimination.

    IQ, personality traits, personal family life style preferences, learning disabilities or lack there of, mental health diagnoses or lack there of, motivation, lea…[Read more]

  • Ivy replied to the topic Group logo of HumanismBaby steps in the forum Humanism 1 month ago

    @Davis The pay gap that exists between men and women is not only because of gender. There are so many other factors involved. It’s really a myth that needs to be thrown OUT for there to be any meaningful discussion on the issue

  • @Davis I have only recently heard of this idea. In particular it was in regards to the Superstition Mountains in Arizona just outside of Phoenix. There are TONS of legends about these mountains….anyway…

     

     

  • @Davis – Yes, I agree. I heard a few radio discussions about it today. Most callers agreed. There were a few who had to “virtue signal” about how we need to be careful about “going down the slippery slope” that could end up banning free speech in the future. They could not grasp the difference between “free speech” and “incitement to hatred”.

    He really is not.  He’s just not hard left.  He describes himself as an old-fashioned liberal.  I’ve never heard him say anything misogynist, racist or homophobic.  I used to interact quite a lot on his Facebook page (which was a lot of fun), so I’ve had some experience of the…[Read more]
