I don't know what you're on about here.. I think honor is great, and wish more people had it.Honor is one of those quaint ideas that sophisticates like Wilbur have no time for.
Hah. Wow. Ok. If you can show me where I professed that utility (or disutility) is the criteria with which to judge the value of life.. then I'll have to concede there that I am like a Nazi! Or if you can show me where the Nazi's demonstrated and upheld the principle that "Minds have value", then I'll definitely have to concede there as well, that I am totally Nazi-like! You got me!Yes, but it isn't ridiculous to point out that many of Wilbur's positions bring him to the same conclusions. For example, his dismissal of human life as having intrinsic value beyond its utility is extremely similar to the Nazi concept of “life unworthy of life”, or “Lebensunwertes Leben”.

But neither do I think religion is a "crime against nature" (a nonsense statement), nor "the product of sick minds". Really I just think they are all untrue - they are false. Which is why I'd like to see them replaced by beliefs closer to the truth. And I do not care to label everyone who holds false beliefs as "sick". So guess I'm really not much like Hitler after all. Sorry.
** Just kidding (obviously)! Its gas chambers and gulags for you buddy! You're at the top of my list!

Didn't Hitler also say having two balls is overrated.
