    Re: Yggdrasil tattoo idea.

    I have to recommend Blood Eagle Tattoo in Pittsburgh. They've done all of my tattooing, they're good, and one of the artists there does ritual tattooing. They also draw everything themselves, so they...

    Re: What Not to Say to a Newbie

    Last I checked, Hastur wasn't The Morrigan, and everyone knows that the ancient Celtic roots of Wicca only allow you to worship or conjure with The Morrigan.

    Help! I need to pass this test...

    Talk to them in public and talk to strangers about it.

    I keep seeing numbers everywhere; what does it mean?

    Re: Parenting Debate: To Snip or no?

    I disagree with calling it mutilation. Mutilation is defined by Webster's as:
    1. to cut up or alter radically so as to make imperfect <the child mutilated the book with his scissors>
    OR
    2. to...

    Re: Let the elections be done and over with

    I disagree strongly with adblock. Most of the free services on the internet can run only because of ads.

    Sticky: Re: THE RANT THREAD!

    I disagree with him, so I leave the room when he starts his whole conspiracy-theory-the-government-is-evil spiel. I don't want to argue with him. Do you think it's going to make me happy when you...

    Re: Cultural Appropriation

    If you dig, almost every single culture has appropriated something. You could even argue that appropriation is a large part of all cultures. The mixing and misuse happens.

    Re: Paul Ryan and his ideas from Ayn Rand

    I have elaborated. I have provided basis. And you have explained Objectivism to me and told me that I am wrong, without providing evidence that contradicts me. I guess this exchange is over.

    Re: Paul Ryan and his ideas from Ayn Rand

    And I'm saying that "evil" is the natural outcome of Objectivism applied past the heroes of Rand's novels.

    Re: Paul Ryan and his ideas from Ayn Rand

    It's a strawman, because it fits the definition of a strawman. Look it up.

    Re: Dumbing down? Is it now a rquirement?

    I don't think society has "dumbed down", because I think that there have always been people who follow blindly with no real meat to their argument. I think things always seem better yesterday.

    Re: Paul Ryan and his ideas from Ayn Rand

    Objectivism isn't amoral, because it proposes to assign moral value, but I'm not arguing about that.

    What I'm arguing is that a philosophy that would only result in self destruction if everyone...

    But the "evil" in all of her novels is caused by the following of that policy. Each and every person that is set against her heroes are working from their own motivations. They are all out for...

    Re: Paul Ryan and his ideas from Ayn Rand

    Ayn Rand's philosophy is based on a glaring inaccuracy - that the average human has the foresight to see how their actions will affect themselves, others, and society in the long run and that they...
  19. Re: Somatoparaphrenia(I wanna cut off my limb disorder!)

    No, you never said that explicitly. But you have accused anyone daring to propose another idea as "totalitarian", of "backwards thinking", and "removing people's autonomy and self agency". You've...

    Have you ever heard of bifurcation? Because this^ is it. It's not either-I'm-free-to-harm-myself-or-I'm-not-free-at-all. It's a very complicated issue. And no one has treated "disability like a fate...

    You're not getting it. No one is trying to take away autonomy. They're trying to help people who need help. Yes, doctors are more qualified to make medical decisions. Yes, psychologists are more...

    Poll: Re: Hi everyone new to paganism :d

    You're going to be a little disappointed when you start looking into Celtic practices. There's not a whole lot of evidence for any of it. It's all pretty varied and conjecture. You can still find...
