Ah, the joys of moron debate. The most frequently sighted and poisonous of an internet forum's fruits.
Interestingly enough, NationMaster does not support Amarth's conclusions. First, it says, very clearly:
I don't claim scientific value in these points, more like gut feeling.
Additionally, regarding Idiota's and Gemini's beliefs on gun control, there is no evidence on a correlation between gun availability and homicide rates. Indeed, although I regrettably cannot cite a source, I recall interviewed police officers mentioning that the vast majority of firearm homicides occur with illegally obtained firearms.Note: the one has nothing to do with the other. There can be a majority of illegal firearm homicides, while still being correlated with gun availability. And all of this stated without sources. Yay.
Additionally, although I am again without a source, I have heard that "child" firearm-related death rates are created by including 18-25 year old males as "children."Relevant... how?
Also, unless a drastic reorganization of the US or the UK occurred within two years, the United Kingdom has considerably more income "inequality." So quit calling the kettle black, mister pot.Anyone from the UK in here? Didn't think so. Still, I kinda agree here, this is just a choice made by your government - while I don't support it, it is not necessarily a strictly better or worse way of handling things.
Although, income inequality is not the same as unfair incomes. That would fall under the term, "income inequity."I fail to see your point here, but that's probably just a lack of vocabulary. Excuse me.
I'm not even going to touch immigration, as it's far more complex than I believe you could understand.Thank you for sparing us, oh omniscient being.
Piaget theorized that few people actually developed to the point where they could think logically about abstract ideals such as good and evil. Every passing day adds evidence to his theory.How ironic that you say this.
In short, I think you're all stupid. Yes, I'm flaming. I apologize for my harshness.How very... non-Christian. "He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her." Anyway, I suppose I have to agree I'm flaming, too. Let me add that I don't intend to reply to whatever else you have to say.
I don't think your opinions mean a thing. You have no evidence for your accusations.First, they're not accusations. Quit feeling attacked. Second, I highly doubt there is a lot of reliable information floating around on the internet, if at all. Research around such phenomena is very controversial. You can always find some point to attack, if breaking things down is what you like to do.
And I wish you would fix your own problems before looking over here.Ahaha. No. Look around you, keep an open mind. I'd rather discuss (and fix - if I could) the problems in your country, or in Darfur, than the minor problems around here. And the one does not exclude the other.
This thread should be for expressing sympathy, nothing more.Well, I can only join you there.
For that reason: If anyone related to victims of the shootings at Virginia Tech is still reading, I offer my heartfelt condolences. I will be praying for you.
