We will never evolve as a species if we don't let ourselves.

To use your phrase, "this is so stupid it's fucking unbelievable."

You try to argue that citizens with weapons could never beat an army.

People respond that citizens with weapons have beaten armies and that it would (I personally don't agree) have stopped those genocides.

You argue that citizens with weapons could never beat an army.

People name specific instances where citizens with weapons beat an army.

You respond by arguing that none of those instances were genocides, without questioning why the genocide was allowed to occur in the first place.

Put another way, if the United States Army tried to murder all Aghans and the Afghans resisted and prevented it, you would argue that it wasn't a genocide and so it wouldn't count as an instance where citizens with guns prevented a genocide.

That's stupid, son. And no way to go through life.

If God meant to interfere in the degeneracy of mankind, would he not have done so by now? Wolves cull themselves, man. What other creature could? And is the race of man not more predacious yet?

Those 20th c. leaders who pushed for the evolution or improvement of mankind ended up murdering the most people.

This is dumb. We're nearly at the level of technological sophistication where we can genetically engineer our offspring. It's GATTACA time and everyone who isn't a poor will be born perfect.

We are just going around in circles. Cavemen with toilets. Who cares if we can heal disease if we just keep doing the same stupid things, enslaving and killing. We have to quit being jackasses to each other. This is it, there's nothing else before or after. There is no god. That is some fairytail shit. But I'm outta line. Guns have nothing to do with it.

The notion that evil is seldom rewarded is greatly overspoken for if there were no advantage to it then men would shun it and how could virtue then be attached to its repudiation?

Being a jackass at times is a necessary part of survival. Not just for humans but for all living organisms.

This is disturbingly accurate.
