Re: Chinese pot calls Australian kettle "black".

Australia has no direct interests in the South China Sea and has a definite interest in good relations with China. Kowtowing to the US may not be the smartest move for Australia to make under the present circumstances...

Re: Life Under Kim Jong Un

Stalinist states are pathologically intolerant of God and all else that smacks of the supernatural and the divine: presumably because the worship of God diverts people's devotion away from the worship of the Great Leader who seeks to supplant Him. :) You can say that again! "In the past, the people...

Re: Evolution and Mankind's Destiny

It's a good thing Norman Borlaug didn't feel that way. I'm talking about the human species, not about plants and agriculture. Do you agree there is a difference?... :roll: No, actually. Your point seems to be that we shouldn't edit human DNA because we cannot know the outcome. But we've edited DNA ...

Re: Evolution and Mankind's Destiny

Has anyone watched the movie Morgan http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4520364/ ? It tells of a genetically engineered girl, created in an effort to improve the human race, but who has to be destroyed as a result of serious behavioural problems. It has a lot to do with my concerns in respect of Man wanting...

Re: Israel

Martyrs for Allah now enjoying an eternal afterlife of heavenly bliss? Sadly news broke out that there is a acute shortage of virgins on account of recent onslaught of martyrs from Syria and Yemen. While goats were offered in their place there are critics of that practice from the heavenly animal r...

Re: Life Under Kim Jong Un

sertorio, To my knowledge Shinto is Japanese, not Korean and kami is likewise a Japanese word. In both Koreas they have an aversion for anything Japanese as a legacy from the 1910-1945 period of brutal Japanese annexation.

Re: Life Under Kim Jong Un

N Korea has nukes. S Korea does not. So without US protection, N Korea can take over S Korea. Nukes are tools of intimidation and destruction, not conquest... Right. If you don't surrender, I nuke you. Ask the Japanese why they surrendered. You don't nuke a country you want to take over and incorpo...
