    You made that up, of course. Everyone knows what the “daddy?” means.

  2. about 3 hours ago on Calvin and Hobbes

    “You say that someone FALSELY reported someone to the police because they BELIEVED something to be true.”

    Only if their belief is not OBJECTIVELY true. BELIEVING something doesn’t make it per se OBJECTIVE REALITY, OBJECTIVE TRUTH.

    “They did something terrible in blaming an INNOCENT person”

    Yes, what they did was terrible, because the person was OBJECTIVELY innocent. But objective truth is irrelevant to you. You think belief is what matters.

    “You show a failure to distinguish between FALSELY and WRONGLY.”

    Falsely accusing someone of a crime is WRONG, but apparently you think otherwise.

    Your attitude is heinous, and all too typical of today’s “humanity should be devalued” attitude.

  4. about 4 hours ago on Calvin and Hobbes

    “I have made it clear that I do not think filing a false police report is justified. I have pointed out that Calvin was not lying but speaking the truth as he saw it.”

    “I said that they were JUSTIFIED as Calvin believed he was making a genuine emergency call.”

    Once again, you contradict yourself, as well as show that you can’t make a distinction between BELIEF and OBJECTIVE REALITY, OBJECTIVE TRUTH.

    You think it was JUSTIFIED for Judy Johnson to FALSELY report to the police that her son had been sodomized by McMartin teacher Ray Buckey because she “believed” it was true, which resulted in Buckey’s life being ruined.

    You think it was JUSTIFIED for Calvin to FALSELY report to the police that Rosalyn was guilty of a CRIMINAL ACT because he “believed” it was true.

    Your ethics and metaphysics are quite poor.

    I have reason to question the link between salt and hypertension. The main proponent of “salt is bad for you” was Lewis Dahl.

    Dahl claimed that he had “unequivocal” evidence that salt causes hypertension: he induced high blood pressure in rats by feeding them the human equivalent of 500 grams of sodium a day. (Today the average American consumes 3.4 grams of sodium, or 8.5 grams of salt, a day.) The absurd amounts he fed the rats didn’t really make sense with respect to a human correlation.

    Dahl also discovered population trends that continue to be cited as strong evidence of a link between salt intake and high blood pressure. But as a paper pointed out several years later in the American Journal of Hypertension, scientists had little luck finding such associations when they compared sodium intakes within populations, which suggested that genetics or other cultural factors might be the culprit. There have been studies comparing salt intake vs hypertension in the US vs in Japan. Japan’s salt intake far exceeds that of the US, but their hypertension rates are much lower. Nevertheless, government and the medical establishment listened to Dahl and his zealous crusade against salt, which he was determined to pursue regardless of data (he had a personal aversion to salt).

    Intersalt, a large study published in 1988, compared sodium intake with blood pressure in subjects from 52 international research centers and found no relationship between sodium intake and the prevalence of hypertension. In fact, the population that ate the most salt, about 14 grams a day, had a lower median blood pressure than the population that ate the least, about 7.2 grams a day.

    I think Dahl was full of it.

    Why does that make Rosalyn an inferior girlfriend?

    Yes he did, Geech.

    “NO! I have made it clear that I do not think filing a false police report is justified. I have pointed out that Calvin was not lying but speaking the truth as he saw it.”

    You said:

    “I keep pointing out that Calvin’s claim that he and Hobbes were being held hostage IS JUSTIFIED in that it was what Calvin believed to be the truth.” (caps mine)

    So you WERE saying that Calvin’s actions were justified. It seems you can’t make up your mind. I’ll ask again:

    Were Calvin’s actions justified or acceptable? YES OR NO?
