    Turing was a genius, and pivotal to the allied war effort with his decryption of nazi codes, but he was only a flawed man. If this is your criteria for a god, any other of your ravings on the subject can be immediately discounted.

  • On 30 Jan 2015 in Why religion (particularly Christianity) is vile, evil, narcissistic & dangerous, Quigley said:

    Even if your current instance of consciousness isn't the instance that would continue? After all, identical twins have been proven to be actually quite different people. Thy have genetically disposed similarities, but they often wind up making significantly different choices, even possessing significantly different personalities.
    I continue to believe that the most obvious answer is correct: we all possess a piece of God which returns to the infinite deity when we die. Try as you might, you'll never disprove this. And only a true sociopath would try.

    Overcompensating for his statements on Bill Maher?

    "Liberals have really failed on the topic of theocracy...the...they'll criticize white theocracy, they'll criticize Christians. They'll still get agitated over the abortion clinic bombing that happened in 1984, but when you want to talk about the treatment of women, homosexuals, free thinkers, public intellectuals in the Muslim world, I would argue liberals have failed us...Islam is the motherload of bad ideas"

    Sam Harris

    It's pretty safe to take a swing at a religion whose major tenet is "turn the other cheek."
    Not so safe to criticize one that will send five camel jockeys to your office to kill you and all your coworkers.
    Guess which route American atheists take?
    Pussies...

  • On 30 Jan 2015 in RMB now #5 World Payment Currency - was #14 December 2012, Quigley said:

    I would add to the definition of currency value: the fidelity of the issuing nation, willingness and ability to pay its debts.

  • On 30 Jan 2015 in Why religion (particularly Christianity) is vile, evil, narcissistic & dangerous, Quigley said:

    If the soul doesn't exist, would you consent to be killed if you'd be immediately replaced with a genetically identical copy with your memories?
    Would you say, "Go ahead and pull that trigger, I'll be back!"
    Would the copy be you?
    If a human being is only the sum of their physicality and memories, murder should be legal when scientists perfect a way to copy memories into a clone.

  • On 29 Jan 2015 in New Greek government already making good on its anti-austerity promises, Quigley said:

    In a world full of fiat currencies, arranging a common currency for separate national entities with separate governments is just a recipe for disaster. Why should smaller nations like Greece care about the strength of such a currency? Instead it's every nation for itself, out for as much "free money" as possible, which inevitably leads to yet another "tragedy of the commons."

    Even states like we have in the US often chafe at having to balance their budgets. Some even come close to bankruptcy like Michigan, Illinois, and California. All blue states, btw.

  • On 29 Jan 2015 in New Greek government already making good on its anti-austerity promises, Quigley said:

    What do you expect from a democracy? Just don't lend them anymore money. I dot feel sorry for the hedge funds who may lose out on their money. The wealthy are already too rich. Let Greece balance its budget or go broke.

  • On 29 Jan 2015 in Iwog is right about the crash of 2017, Quigley said:

    Warmonger!

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Americans are outraged. Congress calls emergency session., Quigley said:

    As disgusting as that appears, it's an improvement on Philippino cuisine. That country is for shit in the cooking department.
    And I have two Philippino relatives, so I know first hand the godawful swill they make.

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Got Measles: Sue parents who didn't vaccinate, Quigley said:

    HepB is kinda pointless for newborns in good health, as it's the blood born (and sexually transmitted) version of the disease. Babies aren't going to be exposed. But they still want to shoot them up first thing outta the womb.

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Got Measles: Sue parents who didn't vaccinate, Quigley said:

    I'm gonna side with Iwog here. Stock market predictions are not equal to proven scientific facts like vaccines do not cause autism. Disagreeing with a market pick is not akin to becoming an anti-vaxxer. That's like saying a protesting a war is like killing a child. It's not the same at all.

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Blue States lead the nation in mental disorders, Quigley said:

    At the present, there is almost as much oversight of the disability benefits program as a cash box by an unattended roadside vegetable stand with a sign stating "pay here."

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Killing kids with cancer, Quigley said:

    Public education has always provided for the outliers: the mentally handicapped, the slow kids, the kids with disabilities, and in California, even the kids who may be confused about their gender. Using public resources carries with it a duty to comply with public safety standards. Objectionists can always find a private school that doesn't mind being a Petri dish of childhood disease.

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Killing kids with cancer, Quigley said:

    One person's rights typically end where their neighbor's begin. Is public health a right, or a privilege? How much responsibility for our neighbors' welfare does society require that we accept?
    Some examples:
    1) texting while driving is banned in most states.
    2)DUI is an offense everywhere, as a serious threat to public safety.
    3)peanuts are banned at most elementary schools as a precaution to protect the safety of kids with allergies.
    4)obstructing traffic on a freeway is illegal no matter which homie got shot.
    And numerous other examples exist wherever the public safety or health is deemed more important than individual liberties to be a jackass.

    Straw Man says

    "But Rhett lives in Marin County, Calif., a county with the dubious honor of having the highest rate of "personal belief exemptions" in the Bay Area and among the highest in the state."

    I didn't know Marin County was crawling with religious nutjobs.

    They believe Jenny McCarthy is the second coming of our Lord and Savior.

    A savior with bigger tits!

  • On 28 Jan 2015 in Global Cooling, Quigley said:

    The one way to shut down any global warming is to ask them what practical steps can be taken to avoid disaster.
    1)reduce carbon footprint!
    Unfortunately developing nations like China already produce more carbon than the US and plan to produce more. Also, global population is increasing, so that won't work unless we start producing carbon free energy like tomorrow.
    2)give money to lawyers and politicians!
    This is the real result of any "global carbon treaties" or local "green" legislation. That and legislating customers for shoddy corporations who know how to lobby.

    Real solutions have been thought of, and dismissed by the usual suspects who simply wish to scare us into giving them more money and power.

  • On 26 Jan 2015 in Environmentalists cry foul over fish decision, Quigley said:

    Wait a minute, so the pumps that feed water to America's salad bowl were only allowed to accidentally kill 76 MINNOWS a year? That's like, half a pound of fish, maybe. If these minnows can't reproduce in the numbers needed to account for this much "predation," they are past the point of no return. How about you harvest some of them and breed more, then release a few billion into the river? Already this is done with game fish like rainbo trout, though with smaller numbers. Small fish must reproduce like mad to account for natural predation by bigger fish. Pumps killing less than a hundred shouldn't account for a significant percentile of the population.

    If anyone needed confirmation that justice is blind, this would be it!

  • On 26 Jan 2015 in Another Obozocare-taxing the middle class to pay for the 300# lazy critters, Quigley said:

    I'm with Patrick and his land tax idea. Make a land tax for funding the government and make it impossible to avoid. This will screw the mass land owners/parasites who hog the real estate for purposes of charging a buttload for rent, and keeping property values high. They have something like this in Texas, and that state is a model for home ownership at reasonable prices.

  • On 26 Jan 2015 in Save Palo Alto mobile home park, Quigley said:

    They did something similar in Huntington Beach. They took the lots from a few failed commercial properties and built high rise condo apartments next to an outdoor mall. Then they rented them for high prices, or sold them for even higher prices (plus high HOA). The sales were slow at the prices they asked so many of the new units stand vacant. The developers can afford to wait tho, and they will wait for suckers to pay the price. They aren't dropping the price at all, just waiting.

    They're making an Autoblow? @Rin you know about this? Could save you a lot of hooker money!

  • On 24 Jan 2015 in Nothing Is Going to Save the Housing Market, Quigley said:

    New Jersey is an example of housing prices being killed by very high property taxes. You can afford to pay $8,000/year for that $400k house, but not $16,000 for the $800k house. Raising taxes at the peak just killed things. How the hell do you think Christie got elected?

    Ain't gonna happen. Mexicans are still much much cheaper.

    Wouldn't be too sure about that, once a robot is paid for in 3-5 yrs it is free less maintenance.

    I have never seen any kind of technology that is "maintenance free".

    LED lightbulb.

    I haven't had good luck with these. I bought about eight, and one has burnt out, another had its glass globe fall off. I guess the glue holding it on gave way. The burnt out one has a faulty transformer. That's what actually makes them cost so much: each one must include a transformer to convert AC to DC.

    shatters like Al Gore's presidential dreams.

    Nice metaphor, anytime you say shatter and Al Gore in the same sentence it has a certain aesthetic value.

    They have been making robots for a long time that withstand rigorous conditions, capital goods and consumer goods are different.

    Actually it was a simile, but it was a nice one!
