What a load of crap.

Seneca the Imposter , is a psuedo - scholar & an intellectual masturbator


Seneca practices what in ancient indian philosophical system of nyaya logic is termed " vitanda" . This vitanda runs contrary to the spirit of meaningful discussion.

The word vitaṇḍā indicates that a debater, not touching the main point or establishing his own point, simply tries to refute the other person's argument. When one does not touch the direct meaning but tries to divert attention by misinterpretation, he engages in chala (imaginary interpretations). The word nigraha also means always trying to refute the arguments of the other party. A debater who indulges in vitanda is pictured generally as an iconoclast, in Seneca's case ( A Christian Apologist/Iconoclast ) who has nothing at stake, or is a motiveless, maligning sort of person.

I see you registered in this forum in 2003. No wonder you know seneca so well.



If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

If you have questions to Seneca, why you didnt PM him???

He /She wants all to know the questions being asked.
Plus its good for a laugh and makes this more of an open debate than a personal question
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

Robert, take off your blinkers and look again.

There were two sides in that war with native Vietn ...

"many died on both sides "

in Lybia, tens of thousands of people died after the West liberated ages ago.
and people are still dieing.
Why DO liberated peole try to sail to Italy after Liberation

Here are my questions for Seneca:

1) What is your favorite Family Guy episode?
2) What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?
3) What kind of women do you like?
4) Can we create a day of world unity where all the world declare their common humanity?  A day free of hate, prejudice, and discrimination.  A day where we all make love, not war.
