What you don't realize, and probably can't realize, is that what you are espousing is as nutty as spending 1,300 pages arguing for a flat earth. You a flat earther.

We can be hopeful that some new nutball will turn up to amuse us. However, most of them don't have the staying power of peacegirl.

Aren't you all being a bit premature? it has only been 4 hours. She may just be doing the laundry after all these weeks. You can always create a new nutball or lure one from another forum, just don't anounce it like some other goofs on another forum.

That was unexpected. Are you actually trying to help me? If you are, I thank you.

For anyone who is thinking of buying the book, please wait another couple of weeks. I'm resubmitting the book on Monday (I've made quite a few changes) and it will take another couple of weeks for it to be ready for sale.

You should practice what you preach, but honestly you have been striking back at the least provocation. So much for you demonstrating your 'blame free' society.

The most authoritative is the first edition. All subsequent editions have been heavily edited by a schizophrenic.

Of course I read the book, you lying sack of shit. How else would I have been able to comment even on the chapter that you kept hidden?

How else would I have known about Monday night spaghetti and meatballs, to wake a child is to blame it for sleeping, and how in the future if one wants to be a doctor, one need merely hang out a shingle and announce that one is a doctor?

If I hadn't read the book, how else would I have known that in the New World, gays will go away, and that it is a mathematical certainty that husbands and wives won't share the same bed? How could I have know about how having rumpy-pumpy at the dinner table is OK, provided that little ones are not present? If I had not read the book, how else would I have known that in Tomorrowland, people will fall in love with each other's genitals? How could I have known, if I had not read the book, about the Great Man's astonishing insight that we see in real time, even though we don't?

Do you really think you do yourself any good with such lies? Seriously, who do you think you are kidding? Lurkers? You really believe anyone is lurking over this trainwreck? The only people you have are your current tiny band of interlocutors, all of whom correctly think you are nuts. :wave:

If your goal is to promote understanding and acceptance of the book, then YOU are the one ruining it for yourself by refusing to actually discuss the material. All you're doing now is coming online to repeatedly attack the character of other posters. If you weren't mentally ill, this would make you a pretty horrible person.

If you find one please post a link, even without registering it might be fun to watch.

You did not read the book in its entirety chapter by chapter. You skimmed it, and you have pulled everything out of context to misinform the public.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. I hope people in here have the sense to know that this is a total sham on your part. Face it, you don't like Lessans because he says the eyes are not a sense organ, and it is messing up your worldview. I had no idea that this would cause so much angst in someone.

Where in the world did he say gays would go away? All he said was that if the environment was the cause of someone becoming gay, then he might not move in this direction, but in either case, there will be no more judgment.

Decline and Fall of All Evil: Chapter Five: Premarital Relations p. 160

Why do you think so many jokes
are made about marriage if not because it is a sadly humorous
situation as we know it. However, it will be changed in a manner
marvelous to behold while jealousy is removed from the world not
because it is a form of blame but because no one will ever again have
the desire to make another jealous, as this motion will render less
satisfaction under the new conditions. Consequently, every single boy
and girl are compelled to desire learning the secret of how to prevent
this great hurt to each other because their own happiness is at stake.
The same holds true for same sex relationships although these unions
will naturally decline when all blame is removed from the
environment. If there are a certain number of homosexual
relationships that remain, no one will judge or criticize these unions
since this is a first blow which can no longer be justified.

Oh well, I can't worry about what other people think. I know that I'm not nuts and when Lessans is proven right, it will only make my vindication that much sweeter! Got it!! :wave:

Why would removing blame from the environment "naturally" bring about a decline in homosexuality, to the point where there might not be any homosexuals left at all (which is implied by the next sentence "If there are....")?

Why did Lessans make that assumption?

ETA: I would assume the opposite. In a no blame, no judgement environment, I think same sex unions would naturally increase as there would be no need for homosexuals to closet themselves or hide their orientation in any way.

There was no assumption. He was stating IF...the environment had something to do with some people turning to the gay world, then that would not be a factor. Why are you making this a false attack on Lessans? He was the opposite of you're trying to make him out to be. He was not a homophobe. He was actually for gay rights. Just goes to show how a book can be misinterpreted, especially if you want to prove the book wrong. And you don't think you are prejudice? You are the worst, I hate to say.

Hello??? Are you there LadyShea? You obviously are not even getting the point of what Lessans was making because you jumped to the conclusion that he was trying to eliminate gays. THAT IS NOT WHAT HE WAS DOING. Do you get that? No, you don't, because you want to be right and make Lessans wrong, AT ALL COSTS.

Where did he say that? And what the hell do you mean "turning to the gay world"? You believe homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, don't you? Did Lessans also believe that? Nobody who understands that homosexuality is a natural biological variance like left handedness would ever use that wording.

This is not an "if" statement. It's a positive assertion.

Is there some context you left out of your quoted passage?
