    Then why are you in a debate forum?

    I like oranges, since we are now espousing non sequiturs.

    I am concerned with what on earth that has to do with the previous exchanges? Let's take a look...

    To which I responded:

    You offered no response?

    You then asked:

    To which I again responded:

    Again, you offered no response, despite making the claim? Then you asked this question, which is quite obviously a variation of Pascal's wager...

    I responded as follows:

    This was your rather bizarre response:

    ???

    I can totally live with that. But now I wonder how is it that no Star Trek series or movie has ever had a starship called Jefferson? The mind boggles.

    There is a Jefferson Iowa in Star Trek where I shop was built, but that hardly counts.

    Whom do you think? I believe humanity collaborating collectively can make great progress if their motives are not self interest.

    Excellent, I've been trying to get in touch, could you have a word with Putin, and tell him to retire please, oh and if you could tell Trump to do the same, (just in case) that'd be great.

    In the meantime explain to the Chinese government that they should respect the rights of their citizens. Also if you could tell BoJo to pay his fines, admit his culpability if applicable, and publish Susan Grey's report ASAP.

    Diolch yn fawr...:cool:

    Are you claiming that your god is going to directly interacting and running the daily minutia of governmental processes?

    Only someone who is self-centered would think that people who don't agree with them have motives that are merely self-interest.

    We would never say that. We would simply look at each other meaningfully and quirk our eyebrows in a knowing fashion. :)

    You misunderstood. I was inferring humanity if it comes together out of interest for humanity it can solve its problems.

    Not at all. I understood that was what you meant. But if you recall, my initial question was in response to your statement, "t’s not about winning or losing an intellectual debate for me but about what’s best for humanity."

    I asked you, Who decides what's best for humanity?
    Instead of just stating your position, you were coy and said, "Whom do you think?"

    I think that you think it will be the Baha'i god, and that the government will be Baha'i, ruling over a (mostly) Baha'i world population. Am I incorrect?

    Again you misunderstand me. By asking “Whom do you think” I wanted to know your views. With regards to ‘who decides what is best for humanity? I think I answered ‘humanity collectively collaborating will decide what is best if they do it without self interest.

    Where on earth did you get the notion about Baha’i God and Baha’i ruling because I never said such a thing, so I believe you have misunderstood my post.

    Again, who do you think should decide what is best for humanity? What is your view?

    My answer was and is that humanity decides. Not any god or Baha’is, but humanity will decide. Sorry if it wasn’t clear enough but humanity’s destiny is in humanity’s hands no one else’s.

    Well, that was pretty mean of you. You were like, Hey Policy, I am going to completely snub your question. But hey, you should totally answer mine.

    So much for your not being all about self-interest.
