Define "smoking is stupid".

Smoking is stupid because it causes weakness.

Smoking is stupid because it causes poor-health.

The reasonings in this topic defending smoking are also stupid.

Smoking is stupid because it causes weakness with no large benefit, its cost/benefit ratio is negative.

Smoking is stupid because it is a waste of resources and cash.

Providing anecdotal evidence is stupid, supposedly some guy is 75 and smoked and doesn't have cancer, well supposedly there is a 75 year old french guy who goes around eating tires and airplanes, tires and airplanes are still unhealthful to eat.

If smoking didn't exist I would still have clean beaches.

So anything that can be interpreted as unhealthy is bad? You should really read some Nietzsche.

And anyway, smoking isn't that big a deal. It's the thousands of chemicals and toxins and radiation and viruses and bacteria and shitty quality foods and lack of aerobic exercise in modern society that will really get you.

"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." -Parodites

"Was it necessary for the sense of truth that Nietzsche described as developed by the Judeo-Christian tradition that then manifested itself in the scientific methodology to turn against the symbolic foundation of that structure and demolish it... Jung's answer was that the conflict between science and religion is a consequence of the immature state of both of those domains of thinking... it's just that we aren't good enough at being religious or at being scientific to see how they might be reconciled." -Jordan Peterson

Bad is by definition that which is unhealthy.

Eating cheeze whiz is not as carcinogenic than cigs.
Cheeze whiz has a higher cost-benefit ration than cigs, cheeze whiz gives nutrients and sustenance whilst cigs only poison. There is no logical reason to ever do cigs.

You should read Luther, Trixie. Right up your alley it seems.
