Brando wrote:I just want mention, that in the Bible their is a strong emphasis on the one earth on which People live. This was acknowledged by astronoms who are on search for life in space. The message in the Bible might be: the difference to human beings must first be encountered within the one earth, before it is acknowledged for life in space. I am not sure if the concept of a race does promote this. Perhaps their is a fundamental difference between humans and proletarian. The socialist have their own concept of race, underlined last by Sloterdijk.


I am not so sure of this but I don't think that in biblical times there was thought of other galaxies or other worlds - were there?
As I said, I am not so sure so the jury is still out. But that would be interesting to delve into.

I am reading the bible as a text which reveals relevance in all times. I'm not sure about the modification of the literal sense of it is necessary. But it could be obtained through philosophy. As a Proposition with this Interpretation: Before men could reach other conscious People in space, they must solve the Problem of living together on the one earth, which is singular.

If you had said that you are equidistant from two children, neither is related to you, but one is your race and the other is a different race, then it may be about racism ...

Yes, that would be a real test.. than saving your own child. :icon-rolleyes:

If you want to know if it is a racist decision or not then you have to remove all factors besides race as much as possible. Making the child a family member introduces another factor into the decision - allegiance to family.

No need to roll your eyes. This is Design of Experiments 101.

Okay. Now I'm confused. The rolling eyes seemed to be saying that my analysis was not correct - that removing the added detail that the child is a family member is not the better approach.

So what are you saying?

..that Urwrongx1000's scenario was flawed, as who Who WHO would save someone else's child over their own, so not an indicator for racism, but for stupidity :lol:

Okay, that clarifies it.
