Re: Hello

Hi Breadsword,
Are you more of a reluctant omnivore, or are you wanting to make a case against being vegan?

Don't hesitate to start a new thread or jump into an existing one.

Re: The Absolute Worst Video I Have Ever Seen On Youtube

Good job Red! I dont think the death toll figures are quite right though, Chernobyl was billowing radioactive smoke from its core for weeks, so likely many more died of cancer, the citys within sight that they didnt evacuate for weeks Don't confuse likely cancer cases with deaths. Thyroid cancer is ...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

As for your arguments about how AI is comparable to cellular automata... look, do we agree that nearly all forms of artificial intelligence use self-modifying code to some extent, and that that's why LISP is often used for AI? No. Some do, some do not. I think that's a kind of lazy way of brute for...

Re: hiya!

brimstoneSalad onions have loads and loads of sugar in them, which is why they're so delicious :( Sure, less than carrots though, which are themselves less than half of potatoes. Potatoes are the real carb bombs. Just seemed a little odd to draw the line there, I guess, when broccoli isn't much low...

Re: hiya!

lilacs why onions? In terms of non-dairy milks, I don't think I could recommend one that's widely available for sweet and savory things. You might need two kinds. Unsweetened almond milk can work for both, but it doesn't really have any protein in it so isn't necessarily a great replacement. Soy is...

Re: Hello from a newbie

You've definitely come to the right place to work on your arguments, and it's awesome that you're motivated to do that now. :)
I agree there's no reason to have to watch those disturbing videos.

Re: Hey everyone

Welcome Catbert, I've heard of that working before: where a focus on ethics distracts from a harmful eating disorder.

Re: Artificial Intelligence

You know, like when you asserted that all the experts in the relevant fields agree that cats love their owners? That is obviously not true, see here. That article is behind a paywall. Please quote it if you want it responded to, I don't have time to hack my way through it (I'll do that for Forbes, ...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

You are making it very hard to argue with you by asserting without adequate evidence that most scientists in the relevant fields agree with you. How can you know most scientists in diverse fields actually believe? Not sure what you're on about. You probably think, for example, that almost all compu...
