ergo, your definition of rights is false.

Au contraire mon frere. There is no denying reality.
Substitute "clothes" for "rights" and you can see how silly your conclusion seems...

If you can't sense, touch, enjoy and embrace them, you don't have them.

If you can't sense, touch, enjoy and embrace them, you don't have them. If you want to trade your natural rights for clothes, that's your decision. Nothing you do, however, infringes on my natural rights.

Your logical fallacies are laughable and can be most simply demonstrated by asking: Do you have intelligence? If your answer is yes, can you "sense, touch, enjoy and embrace" it? Then by your logic you have no intelligence.

Natural rights are equally intangible. Not being able to "sense, touch, enjoy and embrace" them does not change their reality.



PS If you are so small minded as to be offended by the example, then you deserve to be offended. I will operate under the assumption that you are intelligent enough to comprehend the irony and humor, until facts prove otherwise.
