    I love the fact that evo-devo considers humans to just be digestive tracts that threw a bunch of after-market gimmicks on to improve the hunt for food (legs, hands, cerebral cortex) and to reproduce. Really puts us in our correct biological context.

      I mean that isn't technically incorrect. The whole point of existence is being the best at feeding and ****ing.

            Yeah for the record I'm not saying his argument was even correct in the first place. It's been 25 years since high school biology, and I do not intend to pass laws restricting people based on however incomplete my knowledge is.

              • So, I'm experimenting with a way to try to trace political stances back to values, potentially as a way to get people who disagree to have a common rational ground of discourse.

                The idea (still murky) is like diagramming a sentence. Start with the end point: what a concrete policy (P) you support. Then trace back through direct linage to the assertions (A) you hold about facts, and eventually terminate back in your values (V) which are free-standing. Ideally, we would all ground back in the same essential democratic republican (small d, small r) values:

                V1: equality before the law is preferred
                V2: equality of opportunity is preferred
                V3: freedom of conscience is preferred
                V4: freedom from coercion is preferred


                So, for example, my chain to support my position on abortion:

                P1: the right to abortion should be protected
                A1: reproductive rights should be protected
                A2: bodily autonomy is preferred
                V4: freedom from coercion is preferred

                Maybe doing something like this can draw the toxicity out of the argument. Maybe it can locate exactly where disagreements are, allowing progress and even compromise. Arguments would then be about the validity of assertions, or challenging the connection between steps.

                Obviously this only works with sincere interlocutors. You could not do this analysis with an Alex Jones, say, let alone a Dump.

                • You cant do it it with abortion in general because of the God factor...but otherwise it is a good idea.

                  • Holy Hannah. I read that tweet and wanted to bleach my brain. My immediate thought- I would like to see that a55hole try to tell a woman who feeling overly pregnant that the fetus is 'floating' in the womb. Pretty sure a few I knew would have reached down his throat, bypassed his tonsils and ripped his balls out from the inside. This must be a direct result of banning actual health class that explains reproduction.

                          I'm starting to think conservatives are the children born when you put it in the stink. It would explain a lot.

                              At best if things continue like they have been trending in this country for 30 years now we will be Afghanistan in another 30 years. At best.
