Demographically armed societies are dangerous to the other socities and also to themselves, because they tend more to violence than the demographically unarmed societies.

Heinsohn claims that most historical periods of social unrest lacking external triggers (such as rapid climatic changes or other catastrophic changes of the environment) and most genocides can be readily explained as a result of a built up youth bulge ....“ **

Your introduction of the word 'extremely' introduces a bias error into the opinion.“ **

Okay, so you would vote:

„Demographically armed societies are extremely dangerous, thus very much more dangerous than other societies.“

But you do not need to vote. It is also okay to not vote.

Using the comparison of „military armed societiers“ and „demographically armed societiers“ is misleading. Both are „military armed societiers“.

Criticism of Dawkins' meme theory:

Luis Benitez-Bribiesca M.D., a critic of memetics, calls the theory a „pseudoscientific dogma“ and „a dangerous idea that poses a threat to the serious study of consciousness and cultural evolution“. As a factual criticism, Benitez-Bribiesca points to the lack of a „code script“ for memes (analogous to the DNA of genes), and to the excessive instability of the meme mutation mechanism (that of an idea going from one brain to another), which would lead to a low replication accuracy and a high mutation rate, rendering the evolutionary process chaotic.

British political philosopher John Gray has characterized Dawkins' memetic theory of religion as „nonsense“ and „not even a theory ... the latest in a succession of ill-judged Darwinian metaphors“, comparable to Intelligent Design in its value as a science.

Another critique comes from semiotic theorists such as Deacon and Kull. This view regards the concept of „meme“ as a primitivized concept of „sign“. The meme is thus described in memetics as a sign lacking a triadic nature. Semioticians can regard a meme as a „degenerate“ sign, which includes only its ability of being copied. Accordingly, in the broadest sense, the objects of copying are memes, whereas the objects of translation and interpretation are signs.[clarification needed]

Fracchia and Lewontin regard memetics as reductionist and inadequate. Evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr disapproved of Dawkins' gene-based view and usage of the term „meme,“ asserting it to be an „unnecessary synonym“ for „concept,“ Mayr reasoning that concepts are not restricted to an individual or a generation, may persist for long periods of time, and may evolve

Shieldmaiden has no clue of philosophy. Maybe it is even useless to explain to her what philosophy is.

The German philosopher, logician, mathematician Friedrich Ludwig Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) is the father of analytic philosophy, thus the philosophical father of Bertrand Russel (1872-1970) and all other analytic philosophers. See also here (just for example).

Allegedly Shieldmaiden's „darling“ is Bertrand Russel. But if she really knew him, then she would not tell such a nonsense about German philosophers, especially about Wolff and Kant, but also about most of the others. And she should try to write Wolff's name correctly.

Kant's theory about the emergence and development of planets has been true since 1755 when he invented this theory by thinking about it - without science, because the scientists knew nothing about it at that time. Compare: Immanuel Kant, Allgemeine Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels, 1755.

Shieldmaiden should post on a kindergarten webforum.

3509

James S. Saint wrote:

„What was Kant's theory about the emergence and development of planets?“ **

And of suns!

Immanuel Kant was sure that (1) the sun emerged from a cosmic cloud, that (2) a dust disk with floating particles was formed by the centrifugal force of the still rapidly rotating sun, and that (3) the planets were „glued“ in this dust disk with floating particles. According to Kant suns and solar systems originate in a rotating cloud of gas that has thus become dense so that it collapses, and planets originate as „collections of sun durst parts“.

That is a lie and an ad hom! And you know that it is a lie and an ad hom.

I never said anything about Jews. And Jews are not demographically armed societies. Demographically armed societies are societies with a youth bulge. That is known. But it is not known as a fascistic theory but as a globalistic theory. You may call globalists „Nazis“ or „Glozis“ (as I do) but not me.

Platospuppy wrote:

„Your rhetorical deceptions aren't fooling anybody. We all know what 'demographically armed' really means.“ **

I asked a question in my thread: „How dangerous are demographically armed societies?“ (**|**). This question implies that there are demographically armed societies. And you want to deny that there are demographically armed societies? There are war and terror in almost all countries with demographically armed societies, thus societies with youth bulges. My question does not mean that I am of the same opinion as Gunnar Heinsohn is, but that does not matter at all, because I just want to know how ILP members answer the question how dangerous demographically armed societies are and what they think about Heinsohn's theory of the youth bulge. That has nothing at all to do with fascism.

We all know that you are a paid troll and that you never know what you are talking about. You do not know what „demographically armed“ rmeans. You do not even know what the difference between a virus and a bacterium is. And now you are outing yourself as a racist - a racist who hates demographically unarmed societies.

Are you paid by the military industry?

„There are two apparent options;
1) forming from a cloud, as suggested.
2) stemming from an explosion, perhaps black holes colliding.“ **

But black holes could not be known at that said time, thus: were not known at that said time.

James S. Saint wrote:

„There must be a continuous source for such events, but either of those could be eternally occurring and perhaps both are eternally occurring. But at least he didn't proclaim that the entire universe arose from a Big Bang.“ **

Yes. Probably Kant would not have accepted it as we do not accept it. However: No human of the 1750's was talking about a „big bang“ ().

Kant said, for example, one should overcome dogmatism by using the own intellect.

The hypothesis of the „big bang“ has much more to do with dogmatism than with science.

As you know: He (**) does not know what he is talking about. He confuses viruses with bacteria, he confuses his text with any other text, he confuses destinations with disappointments, he confuses facts with values (like all ILP-Nietzscheanists), he confuses demographically armed societies with demographically unarmed societies, he confuses his own ideological belief with the fascism of the past. So it would be no surprise, if he also confused atomic bombs with demographically armed societies.

Again: Frege is the father of analytic philosophy, thus the philosophical father of Russell and all other analytic philosophers.

And Jean van Heijenoort was a personal secretary to Leo Trotsky from 1932 to 1939, and from then an Trotskyist activist. While living with Trotsky in Coyoacán, now a neighborhood of Mexico City, van Heijenoort's first wife left him after clashing with Trotsky's spouse. Having parted company with Trotsky in 1939 for personal reasons, van Heijenoort was innocent of all circumstances leading to Trotsky's 1940 murder. Van Heijenoort himself was likewise murdered in Mexico City, 46 years later, by his estranged fourth spouse whom he was visiting at the time. She then took her own life.

Einstein had even two scientifical fathers who were also German: Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) as the precursor of Einstein's relativity theory and David Hilbert (1862-1943) who submitted the theory of the general realativiy five days before Einstein did it.

The German philosopher, mathematician, inventor, engineer, technologist, historian, diplomat, and policy adviser Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1713) was probably the greatest universal genius of all times - besides Leonardo da Vinci. Leibniz invented the infinitesimal calculus in 1665 (published 1684 - 3 years before Newton published it, 1687); Leibniz also invented and engineered the first calculating machine in the world (the earliest form of a computer), in 1673 - 268 years before the German inventor and engineer Konrad Zuse invented and engineered the first real computer in the world. Leibniz invented and originated more tham the said things, and he also founded the academy of sciences in Berlin and became the first president of it.

So you are the Nazi Fascist who hates Jews. Your rhetorical „questions“ aren't fooling anybody. We all know what those „questions“ really mean.

If you merely want to ask silly questions and to deny problems like wars and terror in all those countries with youth bulges, then you will not solve any single problem of them but probably strengthen them.

Palestinians, for example, have more and more children in order to get the possibility of attacking Israel; Afghans, for example, have increased the number of their children since the attacks and invasion of the USA; the same development in Iraq and in most of the countries of Africa. Those societies increase their youth bulge when they are attacked in order to get the possibility of attacking the attackers.

You opened a thread with the title „Zero population growth“. How do you want to achieve you reach that goal (= „Zero population growth“)?
So what will you do with those who prevent that the number of the population growth can really become zero?(A) Put them into a gas chamber? (B) Castrate them? (C) Drop the bomb?

If you stop talking about God and Jesus Christ, then differences and conflict will be reduced. And that's a good thing.“ **

A „Christianity without God and Jesus Christ“ would not be a Christianity anymore. It would be a modern religion, thus an ideological exercise, an ideological training.

All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether. ****

If spirituality is an exercise or a training, then it is something like a religion too (see above), thus „beyond religion“ is a rhetorical term - used in order to get the global version of something like a syncretistic religion.

You are wrong again. Try to read this thread or at least the following text:

„Religious syncretism exhibits blending of two or more religious belief systems into a new system, or the incorporation into a religious tradition of beliefs from unrelated traditions. This can occur for many reasons, and the latter scenario happens quite commonly in areas where multiple religious traditions exist in proximity and function actively in the culture, or when a culture is conquered, and the conquerors bring their religious beliefs with them, but do not succeed in entirely eradicating the old beliefs or, especially, practices.

Religions may have syncretic elements to their beliefs or history, but adherents of so-labeled systems often frown on applying the label, especially adherents who belong to "revealed" religious systems, such as the Abrahamic religions, or any system that exhibits an exclusivist approach. Such adherents sometimes see syncretism as a betrayal of their pure truth. By this reasoning, adding an incompatible belief corrupts the original religion, rendering it no longer true. Indeed, critics of a specific syncretistic trend may sometimes use the word "syncretism" as a disparaging epithet, as a charge implying that those who seek to incorporate a new view, belief, or practice into a religious system actually distort the original faith. Non-exclusivist systems of belief, on the other hand, may feel quite free to incorporate other traditions into their own. Others state that the term syncretism is an elusive one, and can be applied to refer to substitution or modification of the central elements of a dominant religion by beliefs or practices introduced from somewhere else. The consequence under this definition, according to Keith Ferdinando, is a fatal compromise of the dominant religion's integrity.

In modern secular society, religious innovators sometimes create new religions syncretically as a mechanism to reduce inter-religious tension and enmity, often with the effect of offending the original religions in question. Such religions, however, do maintain some appeal to a less exclusivist audience.“ **

If the pivotal point was (it is not!) „half past 4“, then both would have identical angles (45 degrees, by the way - but according to the logic/mathematics and technique of all watches your example it is not possible, by the way).

H = Hours. M = Minutes.

Position of the little hand: H/12 x 360 + M/60 x 360/12 = 30 H + 0.5 M.
The sum of both angles is 360°.
So: 30 H + 0.5 M + 6 M = 360.
For H = 10:
300 + 6.5 M = 360 => M = 60/6.5 = 9.231 minutes.

This is more akin to the hare and the turtle paradox, zoot, because both arms are constantly moving. By the time you reach 10 minutes, the hour clock has moved forward whatever much an hour arm moves in 10 minutes, making that not an exact angle, so one would have to calculate how many degrees of an angle per minute each of the arms move, (the hour arm moves 360 degrees in 12 hours and the minutes arm moves 360 in 1 hour), or something...

„Not a solution, but: EDIT: oops, missed a page of discussion on this one, :oops: Anyway, this is my untainted first stab.

I'm assuming the equal angle is between the hands of the clock and the vertical. I'm also assuming that the hands are meant to be moving fluidly, such that at exactly 10 O'clock, the hour hand points straight at 10 and the minute hand points straight at 12. At 10:15, the minute hand points straight at three, and the hour hand points at the spot 1/4 of the way between 10 and 11.
So, we can narrow the answer down to between 10 and 10:15.

To find the answer, we need to convert time to radians, take the speed of each hand in radians/second, such that the speed of the minute hand 12x faster than the speed of the hour hand, and then find where the values cross (using the absolute value and counting up to pi and back down).

Does that at least get the question right?“ **

I have already given the solution process.

H = Hours. M = Minutes.
H/12 x 360 + M/60 x 360/12 = 30 H + 0.5 M.
Position of the big hand: M/60 x 360 = 6 M.

The sum of both angles is 360°.
So: 30 H + 0.5 M + 6 M = 360.
For H = 10:

No. You have not understood it.

To find out that the 12 is the line is already part of the task, namely the part that refers to the common sense. Everything you say about the time on the watch refers to 12, e.g.: „... o'clock“, „10 past ...“, „20 past ...“, „10 to ...“, ... and so on, thus it depends on the position of the big hand (minute hand).

Your watch has stopped. So it does not work anymore. (Thus: The hands of the watch do not move anymore!) The little hand of the watch indicates approximately ten o'clock, and the big hand of the watch indicates approximately two o'clock. Both hands of the watch form an identical angle. (Thus: Both hands form the same angle [to 12 or to 6 - indifferent for the mathematical solution!], so they have the same number of degree! The imvisible line is irrelevant for the mathematical solution!) When did your watch stop precisely?

H/12 x 360 + M/60 x 360/12 = 30 H + 0.5 M.
Position of the big hand: M/60 x 360 = 6 M.
Position of the little hand: H/12 x 360 + M/60 x 360/12 = 30 H + 0.5 M.
The sum of both angles is 360°.
So: 30 H + 0.5 M + 6 M = 360.
For H = 10:
300 + 6.5 M = 360 => M = 60/6.5 = 9.231 minutes.
Thus: 9 minutes, 13.8 seconds.
Time on watch: 9 minutes and 13.8 seconds past 10.“ ** **

That is not necessary (see above).

So you put solutions in tabs, but you don't know why?
Should tabs - in this thread (!) - not be used because of discretion?

Very bad!

I called it „descretion“.

Ah, I see.

Carleas! Good luck!

Yes, I know.

Since the beginning of the so-called „Neolithic Revolution“ the human beings have been (unconsciously or even consciously) creating something in order to be replaced someday. This „something“ and this „someday“ come nearer and nearer.

In my job as a private teacher I have to explain very much, and I am pretty sure that I am good at explaining.

On ILP the situation is a bit different:

Unfortunately ILP has not much to do with explaining, because most ILP members just want recognition and nothing beside it. And unfortunately I have to translate all my thoughts into a foreign language. I am not looking for excuses, because I have to admit that I do not want to address many but merely some ILP members, namely those who are really interested in the topic of the thread.

So actually I am not much interested in making a topic attractive to posters.

They are either interested or not interested.

It is the economic reality that mainly dictates, for example the (part of) reality that money causes.
