  1. We don't have to create what we already are. --Brant
  2. Complex life is a one-celled organism. I believe that goes back about 2 billion years of the 4 billion years life of this planet. Complex life as we generally think of it goes back maybe a billion years. The age of the trilobites. Intelligent life is animal life, which includes the fishies. Human life is the life of conceptual intelligence, a queer offshoot of mammalian life. --Brant
  3. If you want to make a movie, it's in the public domain. --Brant
  4. This thread sorta reminds me of the Big Bang. --Brant is it something out of nothing or nothing out of something?
  5. Good for you guys, Deanna. --Brant
  6. Can't we all just get along? --Brant sniff, not; sniff not; SNIFF NOT!!!!
  7. Jon likes to plant them so he can harvest them. Sorta like "Motel Hell." This guy didn't get planted.😂 --Brant
  8. I was referring to his "instructor." --Brant
  9. That prof was full of Peter Keating shit. --Brant
  10. Gone with the flounce. --Brant Screen rights, anyone?
  11. There was no legal basis for deportation. The premise is she was a legal immigrant who legally stayed here and legally gained citizenship. --Brant and no ship for a fool
  12. This is not the neocon position. --Brant
  13. I never knew about boils on the ass either--that is, before I read this thread. --Brant thx
  14. Never heard of S.S. before this thread. --Brant I must have missed something
  15. William is a bear baiter. --Brant meow
  16. I knew the forthcoming invasion of Iraq nearly 17 years ago was based on crap. I think most interested people knew it then, but too many wanted to take out the bad boy. A libertarian named Tim Star was all for it. He even started a Yahoo Group dedicated to it. --Brant
  17. Perhaps William is suffering from left intellectual banishment. Wandering about on his own he stumbled onto this Objectivist melieu. Better than nothing, no? --Brant
  18. That's so foreign to me. Maybe he's just feeding us info for us to animadvert upon. And, you know, the left is so intellectually dead maybe he comes here for brainwork--at least of a sort. I can't explain my affection for him, which is neither deep nor broad, except I grew up surrounded by academic liberals. --Brant
  19. Bill doesn't express his views. Not as such. Not on anything important. Sometimes a minor view may escape from the cage. I think he did better on SOLO where L P called him a "schism junky." Regardless, to engage him is not to dismay him. --Brant
  20. The NYT is being bankrolled by Carlos Sim (sp). --Brant or was--but there's always another billionaire sugar daddy waiting in the wings to pay that whore
  21. They are paid to do what they do. --Brant and going with the flow
  22. I took my grandfather's book, "Impeachment, Trials & Errors" (1972) off the bookshelf. Irving Brant wrote it because his friend William O. Douglas was being threatened with Impeachment by Gerald Ford. I don't have time to reread it now decades later, but recommend it for those more interested in the subject than I am today. --Brant
  23. Not a new disciple in this case, just a drive by insulter of Ayn Rand. You know, "naive," "foolish," and "confusing." --Brant and gimme me some words of wisdom; I drink from multiple fountains
