Re: Against criminal implants - the hate culture of Transhumanism?

Glasses, hearing aids and prosthetics aren't criminal implants. Learn to read (charitably), mister!

Against criminal implants - the hate culture of Transhumanism?

Citizens' action for Democracy: It should be plain to ask for the medical removal of criminal implants and the complaint to the police for this criminal insertion. To make this easy for people, also in providing the walk-through scanner, should be a duty and an issue for the medical associations in ...

Attack on Nelson Goodman's "Entrenchment"

25 September 2017 "The importance of the experiment is great. So great that if you do it properly you will not see any counter experiments confirmed because what you have proved with it is definite. Thus, seeing "features/laws of nature" become properly expressed is a matter of writing into eternity...

Re: A scientific definition of good and bad

In providing scientific definition of good and bad, it seems that bio-values are a more scientific account than that of the OP, one that even Sam Harris can approve of. That is, lower bio-values suggest wrongful action and steady or higher (or simply high) bio-values suggest rightful action. There's...

Either way, I hope you enjoy it! :D

New news: Martin Shkreli has been sentenced on grounds of fraud, https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/04/pharma-bro-martin-shkreli-convicted-in-federal-fraud-case.html . This seems to be the established procedure against pharmaceutical companies charging extreme prices for their products. What about you? An...

Re: All history is a fable.

It doesn't follow from science of history writing that all history is fable. How many ways are there to say that Theresa May is the prime minister of UK? As we know, there are many ways to say something, but only (very) few ways to state the facts! It seems to me that to say that all history is fabl...

Re: The Determination of the Christian - The Confidence...

Necromancer, let me see if I got you straight. You are saying (? Please confirm aye or nay, and correct the wrong parts I attribute to your OP) that: - religious are attracted to be in Heaven, and their concern of Hell gets diminished - the atheists feel that the religious are "good" due to their f...

The Determination of the Christian - The Confidence...

Allow me to write to you about the determination of the Christian. Now let's imagine that a genuine Christian wants to go to Heaven and works/lives toward such a goal. Further then, can the confidence of a Christian, the very deep feeling of "something out there", Heaven and God, be determined as co...

Re: The friendly atheist... not everyone is a barking dog

Under the premise that Atheists, especially in Europe, hate guns and of course have no (particular) moral code, we get this: (At least for suicides) It's stated that "Approximately one-half of suicides are committed by firearm, accounting for two-thirds of all firearms deaths. [21,334 of 33,599 in 2...

Re: The friendly atheist... not everyone is a barking dog

"the choice is between "religion" of wart(s) as taint of a corrupt mind and true religion (eg. Christianity/Islam/Judaism etc.)." I am not sure if I got this straight. Your meaning is lost on me. The Atheists are no better scientists, not more rational, (certainly) not more moral, not better humans...

Re: The friendly atheist... not everyone is a barking dog

I do not see the point of Atheism. Why are not Atheists Atheistic Humanists or Secular Humanists? To me, and more so in the future, I think, the choice is between "religion" of wart(s) as taint of a corrupt mind and true religion (eg. Christianity/Islam/Judaism etc.). The Atheists are no better scie...
