Sam Harris is dumb ass who speaks out of his ass. Whenever someone asks him to back his shit up he goes on a tangent.

fundamentalists*

Can you cite those stats? Never heard of Sam Harris but his argument seems interesting. I wonder if it's considering that most muslims that move into the west are those that want to reform? I wonder what's the percentage of muslims in the west that actually wear hijabs?

Very well written and also true. Good use of reference, Maajid Nawaz was the one I had in mind. We should demand Islam and Muslim reform, or else.
We ought to be careful, though, we don't want to discourage Muslims to do so by hating all of them. So often is the doctrine of Taqiyya brought up by flat out bigots, when a brown person says something anti-Islam and pro-Western, people who just have distrust of any kind of Muslim. I will grant people like Nawaz, Ed Husain and the Quilliam Foundation and the Kurds the benefit of doubt, I wholeheartedly believe them when they try to change the image of Muslims and Islam.

The damage, but not the effect. The effect stays the same.

AMPLIFIED DAMAGE CAUSES A MORE POTENT EFFECT.

LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF EFFECT.

GODDAMNED NORMIE.

Yeah, no.

The "effect" of the sun stays the fucking same. The damage effect it causes on the shrunken pupil is amplified.

If you're going be a smartass, at least be more specific. Yes, the damage effect gets amplified. But the burning effect of the sun does not.

Bravo, you can read.

Still, it's not the effect of the sun that gets amplified.

The effect it causes on the eye is amplified by the smaller pupil.

The problem on hand clearly talks about the effect of the sun itself during a solar eclipse, not what it causes to your eye.

Stare at sun > result is damage.
Argue summore, granate. I can't make it clearer, and I'm done responding. The fuck are you doing interjecting yourself into an argument anyway? That's hilarious on a whole other level.

"Interjecting yourself into an argument" You mean responding to your claim that nobody else answered?

And for your information, I barely ever write anything on FJ.

Thanks for your input. New things for me to ponder.

sure thing m8, that's not even all of the potential issues I see with such an idea.
But I do recommend checking out Asimov's Laws and think about how those could be implemented.

Well the reason they have such a problem with it is because culturally "normal" has connotations meaning "good", which is of course silly; for example it's fairly normal to die before 90, but not necessarily a good thing.
#85 - fragman (12/16/2015) [-]
I won't even say that it's silly, it's actually even somewhat true that such a connotation exists. But the lunacy you need to think that relabeling it will change that is fucking beyond me. Heterosexuality is normal, but "coming out" as being straight or even mentioning it is stupid. Just like you never hear an omnivore openly identify as an omnivore unless asked, yet you hear that shit left right and center coming fom vegans/vegetarians. And the numbers again represent that.

So I propose a rule of thumb: If you have to specifically express your belief/way of life/orientation/ehatever, this attribute is by definition deviating from the norm, because otherwise there'd be no need to say it. It'd be assumed.

If you replace "normal" with "cis" in that context, the same people will hold the same beliefs just towards a different word. Great fucking achievement.

Haven't seen his reaction to that yet, I've only seen season 1 and I absolutely loved it.
Apparently the show went to shit after some seasons (like many series do)

I'm gonna have to see for myself, thanks though m8
