There are more important things for me to worry about than that. I’m pretty sure that only a very small number of animals are actually slaughtered for cat food versus human consumption?

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Are you trying to make the point that altruism is always ineffective? No, I am saying that, given what I know, it seems that it is innefective or even counter-productive most of the time, and that it is therefore immoral. Sometimes it accidentally has good consequences, but that doesn't exactly jus...

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

To me it seems like you and I simply happen to know different things. Could you make a web-app that converts arithmetic expressions to assembly? I doubt it. Could you make an alternative interpretation of the names of places in your country, so that you can contact the most famous linguist in your ...

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Well, let's face it, if you were an idiot, you wouldn't have known that. Yes, so what? So, your common sense tells you giving money to charity is likely to help poor people, my common sense tells me it's not. Why would your common sense be any better than mine is? Because I am smarter than you. Any...

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Look, Jebus, do we agree that, when we donate money to charity, we could be doing a cruel job thinking we are helping somebody? 1. The person you are giving money to may be fraudulent (and, for instance, buy illegal drugs with that money). 2. The person you are giving money to may be honest but mis...

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

teo123 Since you didn't really answer my questions. Do you agree with this summation: Teo123 thinks that the number of poor people who live in countries with non corrupt governments is not significant. Teo123 thinks that the fact that many poor people live in countries with corrupt governments nega...

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Jebus, I don't really know what's going on in India, but I know Venezuelan government prevents the charities from giving money to the poor people there. Please answer this first: Are you saying you wrote the following comment based on your knowledge of a country that represents less than .3 percent...
