Opinions: Difference between racism (etc) and nationalism...

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steve Oct 11, 2011. 7 Replies

"You know, that's a very interesting way of seeing it. I have to agree with you...fierce nationalism is akin to racism. Especially when a person has a derogatory attitude about a person or persons, based entirely on that persons country of…"

"I agree there's a difference. There is nothing wrong with being proud of your country, its values, and historical achievements as long as you are not xenophobic. In fact, As an Iranian, I am very nationalistic about Persian history for example…"

"There's a difference between "nationalism" and "xenophobia". Unfortunately now a days is hard to differentiate one from another."

"You make an interesting point Joseph. Your last sentences helped me see in a new way. My only point I was trying to make was that in order to collect the data you use to make a logical assumption about the existence of something or not, you have to…"

"We appear to have different definitions of the word "sense."  I do not think I can sense quarks, no. Try these: Hannibal crossed the Alps with his war elephants in 218 BC. e raised to the power of i x pi, plus one, equals zero…"

"To interpret evidence collected through rational means, you would have to use your senses would you not? Therefore, you would be using your senses to collect the data. When I say sense, I mean to use your senses, not ESP or telepathy or…"

"I think I understand where your coming from, more or less. It's just that in the original post, the idea that I could look at a dog, touch it, smell it's breath, hear it bark or growl, and then have the smallest chance that it's not a…"

"Haha, exactly, that's actually the topic I was referring to but didn't want to get into it much - at the end of the day, if you find importance in the fact that you still exist in some form after death, does that still make you an…"

"There is a sense in which we continue to live on after death.   One of the necessary presuppositions of physics is that information never disappears from the universe. To a physicist or cosmologist, "information" is a specific jargon…"

psychoactive replied to psychoactive's discussion 'What am I?'
"That's a good question too, does atheism specifically mean not believing in 'God' as a person who judges you, puts in you in heaven/hell sort of thing, or does it mean believing in absolutely nothing? I mean, (weird example, but) what…"
