    Well, it's on a higher level than just one mosquito bite.

    I'll wait, but I have a feeling I'll be waiting for a while....
    And of course I want to read it! What's it about?

    Because. They're plagues. It's like saying you like mosquito bites.

    100%, you say? I've never seen mortality rates reach 100% before.

    I don't like plagues.

    Well, you're the one talking about getting rid of humans. I just assumed, since you didn't specify, that you were talking of all humans as a whole...unless you're some supernatural being higher than human....

    Hence, we would be gone. Get rid of ourselves?

    Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily? Yet humans still do it.

    Well, I never said anything about them being equivalent. It's like understanding and analyzing. One leads to another.

    And nearly any words can be related. They come from the same place. The human's mind.

    Wouldn't "less direct" be "more complicated" to understand?I think they go hand in hand.

    Yes, I do believe they would.

    I guess you're right. I mean, we don't think of sacrificing these days, yet we unconsciously do. I guess the way we believe has just gotten more complicated.

    But if you told the government that, they'd be appalled. I guess you have a point though. We shift our beliefs but they still have the same substance...in a way...

Fake Science

by PeterL on 10-14-2021 at 10:03 AM
I have followed science news for decades, but I have become progressively less impressed with it, because of the lower quality of the reporting. Part of the reason might be that I am more knowledgeable now than I was a few decades ago, but I do think that the writers of science articles are not as familiar with the material they are writing about as was typical in the past. Some articles give me the impression that the writer had no prior knowledge of the subject at hand.

Something About Post-Apocalyptic Literature

by PeterL on 10-02-2021 at 01:46 PM
It has been written that a work of fiction is a conversation between the author and the reader, or one side of the conversation. That that implies that the reader must think about and understand what the author is expressing ( see The Role of the Reader by Umberto Eco for more detail). For that reason, I am giving some insight into my novels Causation and Paradoxes and Contradictions.

I have long had a problem with most apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic literature and movies, because

Whose Problem

by PeterL on 09-25-2021 at 02:54 PM
I donít think it will come with a whimper or a bang. A few good epithets are much more likely. Or maybe I am just becoming less patient with those humans (the ones who do really stupid things.), but it isnít just me. Consider the recent news: Apparently the Gabby Petito matter became a crime, because that guy wasnít able to control himself in dealing with a rather attractive woman. Any man stupid enough to murder a woman like Gabby should get the same treatment, when he will be caught.

On Civil Disobedience

by PeterL on 09-18-2021 at 02:19 PM
Today I started thinking about the people planning a march in Washington in regard to the attack on the Houses of Congress. The Duty of Civil Disobedience implies the opposite, when that is appropriate, and that would include non-governmental action against people attacking the country and its institutions.

I have no trouble imagining citizens of the U.S.A. being unhappy with some actions of the government, but I canít understand people attacking the process of elections and asserting
