But the Conservative elements of american government aren't ultra-capitalist nihilists. They're mostly socially un-permissive and anti-scientific (yes, not ALL of them are like that blah blah).
They're also rarely conservative; usually they're just puppets for big business. Republicans are, at least. Libertarians tend to be bros.
Since science is the study of reality, and the evidence that statistically scientists and academics seem to ascribe more often to a 'liberal' political philosophy would imply there is a liberal bias to reality
I got the joke. I just think the joke is stupid.
I suppose it depends on what motivates her beliefs - I'd hazard she holds them from Biblical scripture and has gathered the rest of her reasoning later to support the conclusion she had previously made. Not that I can prove that.
She probably did, yes.
Actually, it doesn't. The instinctive imperative not to kill members of your own species is basically inherent in all animals with a very few situational exceptions like the consumption of the male arachnids and mantids as well as the infanticide present in some hierarchically structured species such as lions.
Humans kill each other all the time. It's estimated by some that up to 4% of the population are psychopaths who'd feel nothing if they killed another human being, and there's probably just as many sociopaths out there of similar mindset. The fact that we can't measure half a century, yet alone a full one, of recorded human history without a war SOMEWHERE on the planet suggests that the instinct in humans NOT to kill each other is not so deeply ingrained as much as it is encouraged by cooperative relationships that develop from interdependence.
So, what I am saying is that the "morale" not to kill other members of your own species is not something the ten commandments or the bible made up. They just wrote it down, but it existed long befre there were even humans.
Plus, religious belief systems of any kind are, by default, illogical as they don't center around facts but beliefs. That's why they are called "belief" systems.
Just a quick note: It's moral, not morale. It's a small, meaningless typo, but it's like when people write "rouge" instead of "rogue", it just bugs me.
I'll grant you that the belief system is largely irrational (irrational and illogical are different terms), but that doesn't mean the beliefs espoused by the people that follow them are, nor are their reasons for doing so. She could argue very sound and logical reasons for what she states. Doubtful, especially on the Creationism one or the "human brains in mice" one, but I can certainly see the reason she has for some of them.
