ethics classes are so boring and full of common sense. had to take them as a graduate student and it was like "oh, really, I can't sexually harass people, I can't make up scientific data, etc etc etc. So I agree on him, ethics classes are boring. If you need ethics classes, your parents have failed you miserably and you are likely are unethical and no amount of classes is going to make you get it if you don't already

I don't think that someone becomes and or acts ethically just by taking a course in ethics. It the same priciple as saying that just because soemone goes to curch or temple they live by all of the tenets or teachings of that religion.

Example the Catholic Church teaches that homosexuality is wrong and that hurting children is wrong then why ar there so many Catholic priests who molest boys ?
Finally! I can stand in agreement with you.

PI is making an assumption based on one statement. I wouldn't have cared for an ethics class in middle school either. I don't see how this means the President hasn't learned ethical thinking throughout his life.

This is very interesting and I have a theory about this. It seems Obama should have paid better attention if he indeed did take Ethics, and he would have a better grasp of "right and wrong." Ethics are usually taught by your parents at home and I think if you look at Obama and his actions, he clearly does lack ethics. Obama has no Conscience insofar as his own behavior. He is quite fond of telling others how weak or immoral they are. You might say it is his life's work, just as it was his alcoholic father's life's work. These concepts were not evolutionarily beneficial in Africa. He literally does not know what you are talking about when you mention ethics. Ethics is about the activity of restraining yourself from performing an action which is injurious to others. I believe if he was actually vetted during the 08 election by the MSM (as Governor Sarah Palin said he wasn't last night on Fox Business News and I agree with her), we voters would have discovered his lack of ethics (thought process) and he would have never been elected. Not knowing the difference between right and wrong explains why Obama doesn't understand that what he's doing to this country is wrong.

Snip from article:

“I was not always the very best student that I could be when I was in high school, and certainly not when I was in middle school,” Obama said, speaking at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School.

“I did not love every class I took. I wasn’t always paying attention the way I should have,” Obama said. “I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics. Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if you’d ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I don’t think ethics would have made it on the list.”
The highlighted sentence is the most important sentence in this OP.

Obama exhibits unethical behavior every time he opens his mouth and every time he makes a decision. I suspect he never learned ethics at home.

Weirdo
Commonly ethics and morals are realized, not learned by sticking your nose in a book. But whatever. Bash away.

This quote from your OP:

"His African brain is a typical one: concepts of moral right and wrong, guilt, remorse, atonement, redemption, responsibility are simply not programmable. These concepts were not evolutionarily beneficial in Africa. He literally does not know what you are talking about when you mention ethics."

Is RACIST to the core and cannot stand. I have reported your original post on this thread and requested that you be banned. I am hereby asking every member of this forum who stands against racism to do likewise.

Racism has in my opinion absolutely not place on this forum, not now, not ever. Who in the world do you think you are to write such racist crap here? Good Lord, man, are you sick or something?

Scientific racists have presented this stuff throughout history and they have all been debunked:

"In the 19th century, an early physical anthropologist, the American physician and polygenist Samuel George Morton (1799–1851), collected human skulls from worldwide, and attempted a logical, classification scheme. Influenced by contemporary racialist theory, Dr Morton said he could judge racial intellectual capacity by measuring the interior cranial capacity, hence a large skull denoted a large brain, thus high intellectual capacity, conversely, a small skull denoted a small brain, thus low intellectual capacity; superior and inferior established. After inspecting three mummies from ancient Egyptian catacombs, Morton concluded that Caucasians and Negroes were already distinct three thousand years ago. Since the bible indicated that Noah's Ark had washed up on Mount Ararat, only a thousand years ago before this, Morton claimed that Noah's sons could not of possibly account for every race on earth. According to Mortons theory of polygenesis, races have been separate since the start.[44]


In Morton's Crania Americana Morton claimed based on Craniometry data, that the Caucasians had the biggest brains, averaging 87 cubic inches, Indians were in the middle with an average of 82 cubic inches and Negroes had the smallest brains with an average of 78 cubic inches.[45]"

---------------------------------

There is lots more where this came from. Your thread is just laced with the poison of racism, and I hope that I and all members here who believe in the dignity and worth and intelligence of ALL people on our planet can eridacate this form and all other forms of racism from this forum!

OK Peeps, you can have your thread back. There was a line that appeared in the OP and quotes made of the OP that is under moderator consideration. We will not tolerate any comments on that sentence. Thank you VERY MUCH FOR YOUR COOPERATION in this matter.

For those members who's post was edited, I assure only that line in the quote is missing.

Again thanks.[/warning]
