That does not justify making up anything you want. It is clear that the bible considers homosexuality a sin.

There is a lot more resistance to pedophilia than there has been for anything that came before it. It may be a bridge too far. They are still using it to attack Christians with the "hur dur pedo priests" meme.

I think there are more pressing things to be focused on.

We're talking about post collapse civilization here.

Lots of people already own that, along with several methods of generating electricity like solar, wind, gas/diesel/natural gas/wood gas generators.

They are if they're busy sustenance farming

It is subsistence farming and your understanding of it is completely wrong. That type of farming is very low effort. People who live like that have a shit load of free time on their hands. The problem for them is they are too poor to afford anything because they don't earn any money from that.

First off that type of farming is done by individuals and family units. In a community one farmer can easily feed everyone especially with modern farm techniques and equipment. And don't start with the claim that the equipment won't work. That is more nonsense from people who never farmed.

Second, militia groups have provisions saved up that will last them years. They are not relying on farming.

Third, the conditions you are imagining during a collapse will not last more than a year or two. Most of those who did not prepare will be dead in 3-6 months. Being prepared to survive for 6 months is enough to get you through it and then adapt to the new environment.

The biggest real threat is a government effort to exterminate people using forced injections like they tried in 2021. The existence of militias made it impossible for the gov to do that quickly and quietly. Engaging the militias would cause a revolution. The militias only need to resist long enough for everyone to realize they are next and start fighting back. That is the real world condition that they need to be prepared for, not some absurd walking dead scenario you made up in your head.

Another real threat is race riots like Detroit had. Once again the survival tactic is being armed and combat ready enough to repell large numbers of poor discipline low IQ thugs who will be subdued within a month, or starve out within a few months. Farming does not play any role in survival. It is all about having provisions and safety.

The rare case of genocide by famine is the only case in which a longer term solution is needed. That will play out far different than a collapse. I don't think it is even possible in the US. It will start with lock downs and a government takeover of farms and food delivery. At which point the militias will know to develop hidden food sources. They will have more than a few years of rations before the normies panic.

There's no fucking CSI

You are the csi. It's not hard to have a lookout especially with all the camera tech around. Any decent militia will have infrared scopes, hidden servailance, radio servailnce, etc. I think you are severely underestimating the competence of other people.

People who are thriving in their own space would not be coming for my shit. That is not how humans have ever acted throughout history. The west was lawless yet mostly peaceful.

And how are you going to hunt them down?

The same way they came here I can go there. If it is a one time thing that never happened before and never gets repeated you might have an argument that they have anonymity and can be anywhere. But if I'm watchful there is no way anyone will stealthily kill someone in my group and get away undetected. And they sure as he'll won't get a second try if they come back. Your scenario is just absurd.

Militias are not glued down. They are dug in and well protected but most likely have better mobility with good gear like ATVs than any scumbag thief.

why isn't everyone a mereological nihilist by [deleted] in Philosophy

[–]PragmaticStoicism 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The question would be how do you justify that "objects with parts" actually exist,

A leg carries a body. Without a body the leg can't function. Without the leg the body can't walk. Obviously objects with parts exist as I just described an object with parts. Obviously the objects are individually different as they have different functions such that two bodies without legs can't walk, even when connected. Obviously the composite is different than a sum if the parts as it can perform a function as a whole that none of the parts can perform separately.

It is absurd to claim that there is no such thing as "objects with parts".

Who is to say that a soul does not have parts?

Sounds like a better explanation is to say that metrology is the study of what similarities there are between different things. Rather than putting things into categories and ignoring the similarities of things in different groups, meteology rejects categories and only looks for those things which are the same.

That is the most logic I can make of what is at best a poorly considered analytical style.

Today I was looking at an add for a sweater that popped up in my pinterest feed. Everything looked normal, then something about one of the fingers caught my attention. Zooming in, it looked like the finger was a lot fatter before the ring than after. It sort of blended into the ring. The fucking thing was AI and completely fooled me at first.

Now I'm wondering if the sweater is even real. If I buy it what will it actually look like?

Sounds like complete gibberish to me. The premise seems to be that everything that is something is actually not something but some other thing that we perceive as something.

This is a type of convoluted logic that is very common, but comes in different flavors. It is a type of semantic game that bogs down in soft concepts that are hard to disprove, especially for those who are not scientifically literate.

I am confident that reality exist outside of my perception and any claim that how we percieve things with our senses determines the nature of reality is nothing more than nonsense.
