This has to be the most sophomoric mental gymnastic thread I've come across in a long time.

You know who else enjoys this line of thinking? Kids. Kids who think they're "smart" because they've figured out that words by themselves don't mean anything unless they have context/intent behind them.

I can remember every kid I've known defending their use of swear words by saying, "But they're just words! If I don't mean for it to be bad, then it's not bad! Words are just mouth sounds! It's only bad if someone interprets it as bad and lets themselves get upset!"

So, pat yourselves on the back people. You've all essentially discovered the same juvenile argument that kids across the world have engaged in since time immemorial with their parents.

Alright my side I think we are wrong. Here look:

originally posted by LesMisanthrope

[about people wanting to take down statue]

Clearly it’s the representation of the symbol, the thoughts and understanding of it, and not the symbol itself, that moves the people to act in this way. Before destroying the statue, they might just as easily alter what they think about it, without having to rob posterity and the human race of one of its creations.


You said it yourself, it's not the statue that people find offensive, but what it represents. Bravo for grade 3 realizations.
So your point goes the same for words, that people aren't getting mad at the sounds themselves or images- but the understanding of what they stand for.

We got a genious in the making.

Wait- sorry all the other posters like hiddenlight, deaf alien. We got this guy figured out all wrong. Serious.


He's presenting the understanding- that it's not SOUND waves alone that can do damage.


PLEASE TEACH ME MASTER!!!

Thanks for telling us your feelings. But when children hold better beliefs than you do, perhaps a moment of reflection is in order.

Look brother, your writing is fine. I didn't mean to make you feel "butt-hurt."

It happens to everyone. Your work is fine, although, I might ascribe to Blavatsky, and the pamphlet about "the Great Serpent of Illusion."

No harm; No foul.

If I am still alive in the future, and come to ATS, I will read your work and try not to fall asleep or crap on it.

Sincere Regards.


You made me feel nothing. On the other hand, you made yourself appear ridiculous.

Thanks glad to pass-on the butt-hurt.

But seriously man, it took you well over 30 mins to calm down and respond.

And believe me when I say, " I've read more coherent thoughts from most of the Schizophrenics on ATS with Denial issues."

Love you sooo much it hurts my crapper.

How long did it take you to come up with that one?


As quick as your bowel movements, which consequently is the only thing of interest you were able to conjure.

You could spell "quadriplegic" but not "write", a clear sign you are letting auto-correct doing the thinking for you.

Man Jim Jones -the serial killer- could have killed more people. All he had to do was ask you to write a post.

You're killing me.

Perhaps you left your mind in the toilet with everything else.

If we had to kill everyone on ATS that hates your posts, it wouldn't be murder, it would be Genocide.

...violence is always in the reaction, not in the words or those who speak them


Well of course violence is in the reaction. If I shoot you with a shotgun, its only the natural reaction for your chest to blow up. It wasn't unnatural causes! I didn't murder him, the gun did!

Sorry I can think of an insult stupid enough for your IQ to catch up with. It's already at the bottom. Where else you want to go?
