Can you settle and argument by discussing matters? Would you ever resort to violence?

I think violence and barbaric actions hold humanity back. Defending ourselves cost money that could be spent on Scientific research and exploration. War is barbaric and we are still forced to fight them because some humans are still primitive.
Image if an advance Aileen civilization observed us. Do you think they would want to make contact. I would not.
How will we ever survive low enough to reach out into the Universe or Universes?

I try to discuss things rationally, but then you have to be discussing things with an intelligent person, which is not always the case. Furstration leads to anger, which leads to bitch slapping (which should be legal). Aliens have their share of crazies as well, I'm sure.

Yeah, violence predates reason, so it's very old and primitive. Unfortunately I think it'll be with us for quite some time yet. Fear has served us well throughout our history. It's protected us from harm, but at the same time it's the root of violence and bad behavior. In my opinion, recognizing, understanding and mastering fear is the key to a better world and life.

Fear Kraven can only eradicated by education.
I admit that I fear fascist of any kind. Especially the kind that wish to rule by their religions. Which are based on nonsense, delusion and irrational undocumented stupidity.
I fear that they will stop Science which is based on facts to protect their nonsense religion. I fear their inability to comprehend Scientific fats. Their desire to believe in completely irrational nonsense because; someone made it up and wrote it down.
When they attempt to preach to me I am extremely angry. No one could ever convert me or force me into believing such stupidity.
I believe they have a right to believe as they choose. They have no right to attempt to force their nonsense on anyone or on any nation. I believe such an attempt is immoral. It is a form of fascism and fascism and dictatorship rob human beings of our rights.
I can't stop laughing when people that pray weekly at their place of Worship attempt to scam others. They never practice what they preach to others. It seems to me that these religionists people think they are above what they preach.
I guess they think God only sees what you do in your place of Worship. I don't believe that.
If God exist he,she, it will judge us all by all our contributions,actions and lack of them.
Scientist work very hard to find cures for suffering humans.
I argue with people about these matters all the time. I would not pick up my hand to anyone unless it was in self defense.
I think violence is a primitive instinct that humans need to out grow.
I usually tell morons who can not comprehend Scientific fact. I will not waste my energy on you. I walk away. I focus on positive things.
I have walked away all my life unless someone hits me. Than they always regret it. I fear hurting anyone even in self defense. I have a temper too. I just don't see why anyone wants to hurt anyone. Words are more powerful.
