    Wtf?
    We were speaking in terms of what is legal and illegal.
    Not morals and ethics (which are personal) as ChrisL is now attempting.


    Another ridiculous comment, from the guy who said he wasn't arguing the legality of it.

    Yes murders have been around since time immemorial, just as legal killing has.
    What Columbus did was legal.
    Learn to distinguish between the two.
    Slavery is only wrong because of the law!

    What about a person with no IQ?

    Yeah routinely above 160. But it doesn't appear that you even reach 110.
    You clearly display a lack of reasoning.
    Back to the claim.
    I tested 146 and 127 so I just split the difference and say 137. I figure top 1% is fine.
    Besides, IQ isn't as important as emotional happiness when it comes to living a good life.

    But... you don't believe me. What can I do to change your mind!! I need your approval!

    I am speaking about definitively wrong.
    You may have a personal opinion on it, but that in no way makes it wrong.
    Look at how many are supposedly enslaved today. Somebody (obviously quite a few of the world's population) doesn't view it as personally wrong.
    So yeah, the only thing that makes it wrong is the law.

    Buckewer is the fourth person that I know of who suspects Excon of being...well...of less than voting age. A lesser person might take the hint.

    You are only giving credit to emotionally and psychologically people.

    Many people think that child abduction, murder, rape and cannibalism is fine too... to give any credit to their ****ed up opinion is idiotic.

    Nah.

    Columbus was a conqueror, everyone knows that. He wasn't nice, and that's fine. It's just a celebration of the dawning of the Age of Exploration which brought western civilization to the Americas. Keep it around, as the US is a western nation.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    The hint being that juveniles oft speak of that which they know not.
    Especially as it has already been established that I am much older.
    So welcome to that club.
    You have many like minded juveniles to buddy up with.

    Well, I won't pretend to know how you were eventually able to establish your age, but I'm going to guess it wasn't due to your seeming inability to respond without a steady stream of taunts and insults.
