Re: My view on art and nazis.

Know that the reality of the Nietzschean Empire was far, far worst. One of the worst scourges humanity has ever seen. No such thing as the Nietzschean Empire...certainly not one Nietzsche would have agreed with; somewhat unfair to revile someone posthumously who would never have agreed with any of ...

Re: Nonbelief and Evil: Two Arguments for the Nonexistence of God by Theodore Drange

Charles Echelbarger explains the atheistic arguments of Theodore Drange. https://philosophynow.org/issues/47/Nonbelief_and_Evil_Two_Arguments_for_the_Nonexistence_of_God_by_Theodore_Drange Clearly this is just another situation of someone creating a “thought bubble” that we’re all supposed to step ...

Re: Race versus culture

But in America there are four black geniuses. The man who invented peanut butter. The woman who invented the hair dryer. A woman who was an engineer at NASA. And another woman astronaut. Apparently female blacks are more masculine than male blacks. But let's pretend all races are the same and that ...

Re: Muslims/Mexicans Are Taking Over

Put another way, "humanity" has never had a culture of its own and the longer it takes to forge one the more insidious the danger to its overall existence. Humanity may have had a common culture in the past, there seems to be evidence for a common material culture and also a proto-world-language. I...

Re: Muslims/Mexicans Are Taking Over

What is universally credited as the greatest evil of the 20th century is customarily debited to the account of anyone who objects to the currently avowed "Western Weltanschauung" of the period making it the favored form of debasement by those who so easily surrender to the educated idiot mode of th...

Re: Muslims/Mexicans Are Taking Over

That's always been the problem with these kind of "discussions" which attempt to affirm the history and the peoples who created the culture being that what fundamentally creates the ID of a nation in its Western ecumenical setting. Whenever one wishes to defend it against an influx of those who have...

Re: What does it take to start a revolution?

Disequilibrium in societal categories eventually heading toward a showdown. The friction of one against the other.

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

You seem to regard quantum theory as having the potential of extracting a god from consciousness. If this view is viable, then it’s equally possible we are surrounded by a universe that’s already been morphed to some other entity’s far greater extension of consciousness. Good grief, Dubious, isn’t ...

Re: Symbiosis between the artists and their patrons

To what extent would you say there is a symbiosis between the artists and their patrons? Would you regard this as necessary for the artists or can they develop their craft without a symbiosis? What would lead to a symbiosis in the first place? PhilX 🇺🇸 I heard a phrase in a movie that was similar t...

Re: Women Protect Men Too Much

The main factor that makes both sides of the same coin equal is that we're all equally obnoxious...or tarnished speaking of coins. I agree. Man's classic sin is pride. Women know how to manipulate this weakness. In contrast, a woman's classic sin is vanity and men know how to manipulate this weakne...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

You and Dubious are not open to the conception of universal purpose because you are accustomed to appreciating purpose in relation to results. The purpose of this is to create that. The universe is a cycle so its purpose is witnessed in the process of existence. We lack the quality of consciousness...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Based on recent speculation that there may actually exist an undetected planet in just our little solar system alone, then if I were you, I would not put so much faith in humanity’s present ability to discern the state of other solar systems that are light years away from us, let alone, thousands, ...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Sorry for the long delay but events intervened! As just one simple example of what I am getting at, “visible light” (i.e., that which illuminates the three-dimensional structures of the universe) would have absolutely no reason or purpose for existing in a context where there is nothing conscious (a...
