The "Boggled" Award

And remember, Jesus died for your sins.

Quote# 84447

Altruism is more animal behavior. When a human "sacrifices" out of love it is not a sacrifice at all, so it is not altruism. True love is selfish and when it is selfish it is also loving. If a man jumps in front of a car for his child yes that is very selfish behavior not altruistic at all. Altruism is when you sacrifice yourself for basically no good at all. Theres no good in just sacrificing yourself.

'Theres no good in just sacrificing yourself'

So why did Jesus do it then? He didn't have to die at all, he's the fucking son of God. He could just have magically washed away everybody's sins without killing himself, he could have whole armies of angels to save the Jews from the Romans, but he chose to die for no reason at all.

He's not really wrong. He's not eloquent about it but this is actually a fairly common philosophical argument.

Yes, and philosophically speaking, according to Aristotle, the tortoise will beat Achilles every time they race against each other.

Now, after this short pause for philosophical reflection, let's get back to reality.

Thank you, Brisingamen, for demonstrating that you are a sociopath. I'm sure all you on this board know exactly what I think of sociopaths... so I'll leave what I want to happen to Brisingamen to your imagination.

Minor point...
Brisingamen is a female.
She is one of the mose insecure and self centered females I have ever encountered

10/23/2011 1:04:33 PM


Ain't nobody gonna sacrifice themself for you, that's fer shure.

10/23/2011 1:17:30 PM


Jesus was a Selfish Dick.

10/23/2011 1:26:50 PM


Mmmmmm.....word salad! Pass the Thousand Island dressing, please!

Perhaps we could take up a collection and buy this dip a dictionary?

10/23/2011 2:31:29 PM


oh Ammy you never cease to amaze me with the dribble you come up with.

but i suppose when you suffer from as many mental issues as you do that is expected.

10/23/2011 3:26:21 PM


Well, she does have a point in that the man's genome is continuing...

...Except that now that I think about it, she's also advocating not actually making self-sacrifice at all, when her own example has self-sacrifice to greater good (again, the genes survive, to breed later on).

So yeah, bitch. This isn't philosophy, this is an excuse.

Raised by Horses

And for her next trick, Brisingamen will explain to us why philanthropy amounts to genocide.

10/23/2011 5:16:39 PM


geez, even after a 48 hour bender i can still type something more coherent than this quote!

10/23/2011 5:31:44 PM

Doesn't sacrifice cause resentment in the person doing the sacrificing?

10/23/2011 5:44:58 PM

I Read About The Afterlife

So wait. Jesus doesn't love us? Or was he being selfish?

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7.

10/23/2011 8:02:24 PM

@Mat: in other words, exactly the opposite of what Brisingamen thinks love is.

10/23/2011 8:19:53 PM


Selfish how? Cutting in line to get to hebbin?

10/23/2011 8:39:03 PM


I wonder if he would like some olive oil and balsamic vinegar to go with that.

10/24/2011 12:04:54 AM

Like every other christian saint trying to emulate jebus.

10/24/2011 1:54:35 AM


Altruism is self-sacrificing for the good of others.

There, you were pwned by the definition of the word. How does that feel?

10/24/2011 2:45:43 AM


No wonder you have such a hardon for 'The Rapture'... you are such a miserable SOB in life, that death looks good to you.

10/24/2011 4:01:39 AM

Big One

What you need, kind Sir, is a dictionnary.

10/24/2011 6:08:44 AM


@D Laurier: You've not encountered many 16-year-old females, have you?

Mister Spak

" Altruism is when you sacrifice yourself for basically no good at all."

No, that's christianism. Altruism is a survival trait that appeard through evolution.

10/24/2011 9:09:16 AM


"Altruism is when you sacrifice yourself for basically no good at all."

Then you should do something altruistic immediately like SHOOT YOURSELF!!
