A message to people who are mad at me for defending the Asymmetry.

Listen, people, if your arguments are so poor that they’re either patently illogical or straw men of what I wrote, and you keep bringing them up over and over even though I’ve already refuted them for you, I’m going to just ban you. I don’t have time to waste on pointless idiocy like this. I don’t know why I’m getting antinatalists over here trying to attack the Asymmetry, let alone doing it with such terrible logic, but I’m not gonna go easy on you because you’re on my side. Not only are you wasting my time, but you’re making us all look bad, and we really, really don’t need the help. Also, blabbering about counterfactuals and referencing another flawed rebuttal of the Asymmetry doesn’t cover for your stupidity. Please, please, for the love of Bob, at least learn how to use basic logic before you start expecting everyone to agree with you.

    The problem with people, even those who are seemingly on our side is that they are burdened with too much conceit about being intellectuals.

    The asymmetry argument is really, really simple. There are enough wannabe intellectuals on YouTube who frequently argue with Gary about the asymmetry and all they produce is pseudo-intellectual nonsense that is no different than gibberish.

      “The asymmetry argument is really, really simple. ”
      I think that’s the problem. It’s too simple for them to argue against it, so they have to invent problems and new straw arguments.

    You cannot have a child for the child’s sake, although you can not have a child for the child’s sake?

      You just said the same thing twice.In both cases, the answer is yes. It is logically impossible to do something for a reason that doesn’t exist yet.
