Re: What Is The Meaning Of Life?

I think many generations have made clear what life is about: 1. Survive to maturity 2. Dive into life, maybe breed 3. Press onwards, getting things done, until you start seeing through the games 4. Slow down and ponder what on Earth all that was about, compare notes with others, pass on experience 5...

I do resist with logic which is why it is annoying.
I wish you did use logic.

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Resisting secular intolerance is annoying to secularists ... If you resisted with logic without all the solipsism, judgmentalism and self-entitled and self-important fury, that would not be annoying. You think you are on a grand crusade against the Great Beast. In truth, you are a little troll man ...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

Books don't let me ask interesting questions, so this is where I ask them. So you would rather not have the answer so you can do your own investigations? Note that your investigations are not in any way equivalent to those of researchers - thousands of people ranging from very smart to genius, who ...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

[re: Cambrian explosion] Reality does not always move or change at the same pace. That includes evolution. Sometimes there are growth spurts, sometimes slowdowns or stagnation. True. But my answer keeps unanswered. Have you tried looking up the scientific literature? If you are that interested, I d...

Re: Atheist Fiction

Marj, David Gilmour is one of my favourite humans in music :) I expect Roger Waters and co felt similarly to DG, given the band's lyrics and style. Yes, Douglas Adams was a fierce humanist and environmentalist. Terry Pratchett was of a similar ilk, and his "Small Gods" captures many dynamics of reli...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Nick, your focus is on "resistance" and this translates to "annoy" and "try to harm". Philosophy forums are not here for people to simply attack each other. If you are peaceful, it is quite possible to have a pleasant sharing of observations about existence rather than fighting. You should try it so...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

Insulting you is only what you deserve. I've answered your questions repeatedly , and in detail. So explain rapid evolution in Cambrian explosion and its huge slow down 11 miles ahead. Reality does not always move or change at the same pace. That includes evolution. Sometimes there are growth spurt...

Re: Atheist Fiction

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: The Babel fish is small, yellow, leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received, not from its own carrier, but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nou...

Re: There is an objective good and bad

Too long for me reading on a screen and too repetitive, but some elegant turns of phrase and better edited than I can manage :lol: . A few quibbles: This means that, if these depressed and miserable genius artists had no positive emotions at all, then their claims and beliefs of their lives and art ...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

So what? You had already said these things how many hundred times? So you believe that if you are not permitted endless repetition then you are being shut down? More victimisation by secularists? I see you as a troll. You openly admit that you main aim is to irritate those who "worship the Great Bea...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

As an artist and musician, imagination and intuition are my favourite things. That is what creative people do. Me too. I am a published fiction writer and a visual artist. I rely on intuition all the time. I, and I am sure you, have a much greater understanding of intuition than Nick ever could if ...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Is it possible to put in a request for the shutdown of this thread? I enjoyed seeing Nick's other thread locked so much that I have a craving to experience it again, it's very adictive. I can't blame you. As a secular intolerant you enjoy the victory of secular intolerance shouting down a thread. R...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

But that's not what he said is it. This is you just adding your previous indoctrination into the mix. Exactly. He's been proved wrong so instead of admitting it, he just switches back to his usual woo. Einstein wrote Indeed, it is not intellect, but intuition which advances humanity. Intuition tell...
