re: Human evolution: astounding new story of the origin of our species - crazy4lsu
[quote]have not proposed any such thing and don't care enough to do so [/quote] Read my first post. It was specifically in reference to the out-of-Europe model. [quote]again, irrelevant. your statement should be appended with "given what we know at this time." you're missing the principle[...

re: Spain to implement permanent UBI - crazy4lsu
The means-tested aspect is a key difference. If its means-tested, then by definition it isn't "universal." The only place I've seen "universal" is in Western media. The Spanish source I just posted didn't use it. Also the Alaska version is means-tested too. ...

re: Spain to implement permanent UBI - crazy4lsu
According to Nadia Calvino, the Spanish Minister of Economy, it is a Minimum Vital Income, not a Universal Basic Income. Jorge Escriva, another minister, says that it is a pilot program. The main difference between the two is that the Minimum Vital Income will probably be means-tested. I don't know ...

[quote]it’s about individual cultures/countries/governments.[/quote] Then let's talk about that. [quote]Time was hard for the Greeks but good for the Persians and “resulted in harder men[/quote] I have no idea of what you are referring to here. The Greeks and Persians, in the first Greco-P...

re: Good times create weak men. Weak men create hard times. Do you agree with the adage? - crazy4lsu
No, it is a ridiculous oversimplification of history, and it irks me every time I see it. You'd have to be willfully ignoring details in order to create the narrative that a whole era was a "good time." What meets the criteria for a good time anyway? Who gets to decide those criteria, in a historica...

re: Sweden stats vs Denmark stats. Is there better data comparison? - crazy4lsu
[quote]Population density is also higher in Sweden and they 10.1 million vs 5.6 million for Denmark [/quote] This is actually a tricky calculation. Denmark has 135 people per km^2 while Sweden has 35 people per km^2, but Sweden has a vast wilderness area, with most of its people living in cities...

re: Do people really grasp how dystopian this really is? - crazy4lsu
We've had dystopian conditions for some time. Mass surveillance, the militarization of police, and mass corruption on all levels. But dystopian literature imagined the conditions much differently than they've played out in real life. I would argue that the literary reference colored our perceptions ...

re: Human evolution: astounding new story of the origin of our species - crazy4lsu
[quote]actually it kind of does. [/quote] I don't see how except in an absolute general sense. The specifics of the findings matter, and that article itself isn't as definitive as you are pretending, as the language is conditional from the researchers themselves. They don't know for 100% surety w...

re: Human evolution: astounding new story of the origin of our species - crazy4lsu
[quote]this is all based on currently available data which was addressed in the article i cited. so my point still stands [/quote] The article you cited do nothing to upset notions of the recent African origin hypothesis. It is a small window into the way the debate has accepted the African model...

re: It's not just the US media - crazy4lsu
[quote]90% of the entire world’s media is owned by 6 companies. [/quote] That is just America. This isn't true for the whole world though. The UK, for example, has something like 11 different owners of newspapers and 10 different owners of television stations, with the BBC having the largest mar...

[quote]that does not work in the african model's favor. it just means at this time, there is more evidence for it. it's not a zero sum game.[/quote] This is a meaningless statement, ignorant of the context of the development of the model. There were other models that lost out due to the combinati...

[quote]like anything else, it's important to remember that all theories are pending [/quote] There is scant evidence supporting anything but the out-of-Africa model. That doesn't mean this model doesn't have its discontents, problems, or issues, especially as it relates to the dispersal process ...

re: Human evolution: astounding new story of the origin of our species - crazy4lsu
[quote]Out of Europe??? [/quote] Absolutely not. A transitional fossil found in Northern Africa is not evidence of an out-of-Europe model. The genetic evidence is overwhelming in support of the out-of-Africa model, but there are multiple theories about how it spread, admixtures, and interactio...
