This wasn’t someone making an inquiry based on reason and science;
The recurring proposal of culling a great amount of the human population for the survival of the planet and our species, or even wiping ourselves out to save it. In short I would like to know, why not?
I haven’t heard of this before, it’s obviously something very important to the poster given the length of how they defended this.
And it’s not based on their level of reason, they basically stated they are in a fact a psychopath and human life is worthless to them.
You fear psychopaths because they show just how frail our established systems really are (like morality).
The proper term is culling. Genocide is the illogical emotional term people use out of fear.
That whole thread was a psychopath demanding that we come up with some reason why we shouldn’t be exterminated by them, that’s advocating a new Holocaust, not inquiring about anything to do with reason or science in the context of humanist values. It’s the complete denial of them in point of fact.
Then we get to posters like Mike Yohe who endlessly “ask” questions involving the extremely well established science on global warming then inevitably “prove” it’s not happening. On an issue that scientific research is clearly indicating is heading towards another global scale extinction event if not mitigated. There’s no science, reason or humanity involved in that either, it’s just another way to kill off billions of humans and most other life on the planet.
Inquiry shorn of humanity in the interests of psychopaths is the opposite of what this forum claims to be…
