KPJ <> commented:

It appears as if Brian D Williams <> then wondered:

Excuse taken. :-)

If one find biological facts to not match one's meme system, and one decides
to ignore the biological facts due to this, then I call that a "prejudice".

Maybe I have misunderstood your statement (quote [1] above) to mean this,
but if so, feel free to elaborate on the statement as to what you _really_

It really appears as if you meant that referring to biological theories
as to human male behaviour, esp. Mr. Jackson's extramatrimonical activities,
was a (quote) "lame excuse" (end quote).

Or did you react on the word "prejudice" as too harsh a word to classify
such an opinion?

Feel free to replace /your local/ with /the local/, if you feel offended
by the word "your".

Due to oppression of personal freedom from humans in government, religion,
and in other groups, the only way for humans to live together requires that
they do these meaningless rituals as required by the Government or the Right
Religion. Those who mistake empty rituals for a lack of character or integrity
make a great mistake, indeed. Most humans do not wish to fight oppression
as ardently as Number 6 in the Prisoner TV series does.

Societies consist of individuals, and individuals have customs, a "society"
being an abstraction in the head of humans. Abstraction cannot feel, cannot
have customs, etc. Individuals do. Minor point, though.

|assumption at that.

You commented on the Jackson individual, so naturally I assumed you really
meant to discuss him, as a specific example of a general rule. If you did
not mean that, then I will naturally repent.

I claim only how it appeared to me. If I am in error, feel free to correct me.
