How is it possible that someone with a superior intellect has no conscience?  These things go hand-in-hand, right?


You would think. But I just don't have the same this-is-wrong trigger everyone else has.

"Superior" is a relative term, but having a mind that works well at solving problems and making decisions in one area may fail completely to be of any use in others.

A moral philosopher with a towering intellect might not be good at math and science at all... and there is no guarantee that a great moral philosopher would have a conscience either.

I'm not sure why you would think that.

I agree with you, I see no link.  I know some smart people who have no morality and don't give a shit about other people.  And politics is littered with them

Favoring one group of people over other groups because of the color of their skin isn't racism?

Who disagrees with that definition?


No, and you'r thinking of affirmative action, as would be expected of you.

Some laws that favour blacks are enacted to even the playing field. That's necessary because in your country there's been too much effort to tilt the playing field.

You've finally done it! Come up with an irrefutable argument disproving everything our dear Donat ever said!

Good job!

He gets desperate like that for a while and then he just has to answer back sooner or later. I can ring his bell for him any time I choose.
