Once again. Typical human thinking.


Heh...boy you do think you're spock don't you.

I give up. Ignorance does not make you enlightened
but if you are happier living in your make believe world
than more power to you.

I guess you fear what I am saying. Otherwise you wouldn't resort to name
calling or put downs to drive your point.


Actually I do "fear" you believe it. As for driving my point, it's
not "my point". It's not my belief or my theory..its clinically backed,
factual based, trial supported truth.

And calling you ignorant isn't name calling. What is your degree in?
How many psyche classes did you take in college? To believe that
humiliation is not a learned response you have to be ignorant of
the facts. You can't have read the clinical trials and studies that went
into this conclusion. Even my small anecdote was a trial of a kind...
but you ignore facts based on some belief system you hold. That's
fine, but it isn't factual. I have proof that some human emotions are
learned. The very fact that we come out naked and aren't embarrassed
by it is proof alone that feelings like embarrassment and humiliation are
learned. Why aren't babies embarrassed? What IQ level do you give
to your cat? If they are intelligent enough to be embarrassed, why are
they stupid enough to run in front of cars or drink anti-freeze?

Enough with the facts..they aren't going to sway you. You have your
cats to tell you the truth right? Let me guess..your a star seed? No,
wait..
and indigo child? I have read plenty of metaphysical philosophers, I have
even attended seminars on everything from the Nubians to Free Spirit
thinking (that's a really great one by the way) but none of them, not
one tells me that my cat will be embarrassed to wear bunny ears or that
humans are born with every range of emotions..nothing learned...as
are cats. You are the one just making this stuff up as you go...which is
fine for you but don't expect me or anyone else with an ounce of
reasoning power to buy into it.
