Re: Why is it ok to discriminate when you get married?

Point taken, Walker. So if we put love aside and focus on interests, can one imagine a person saying: I cannot marry this person who will make me successful and flourishing because I prefer a bum from my own race. ??? Sounds like the broader question is why get married. - Plenty of people marry for...

Re: Why is it ok to discriminate when you get married?

Today people marry those whom they love most. Can you imagine a person who says: "I love this person with a different cultural background and different skin color but I marry someone like myself because I am a racist." ??? :mrgreen: I cannot. This implies that singles haven’t met anyone more belove...

Re: If we're supposed to know right from wrong, why do we need rules?

And what rules should they be as they frequently change? PhilX As a principle, rules are for the purpose of maintaining the design of a form, which makes optimal movement possible. The form can be a person or society. For the person, there are natural rules of movement that if followed, result in t...

Re: What is art?

"The difference between objective art and subjective art is that in objective art the artist really does ′create,′ that is, he makes what he intended, he puts into his work whatever ideas and feelings he wants to put into it. And the action of this work upon men is absolutely definite; they will, of...

Re: Noam Chomsky and Our Collective Responsibility

“Hoffer said he might respond with this: '"Chomsky loves power. He is also convinced of his superiority over any politician or businessman alive in the United States. He sees the world being run by inferior people, by people who make money, by people without principle or ideology. He thinks that ca...

Re: 100% Proof That Gods Do Not Exist

Many non-theists, including myself, DO NOT CARE what anyone else wants to believe. All that matters is WHAT THE PERSON DOES. Re: doing. If in doing the intent is to not harm then in comparison the odds for success favor not-doing, unless one has a serious ailment and can’t go gentle. If the aim is ...

Re: Noam Chomsky and Our Collective Responsibility

Chomsky is a linguist. Listening to a linguist talk politics is like listening to a politician define “is.” The philosopher Eric Hoffer couldn’t figure out Chomsky, either. He tried to understand how anyone could say this, and puzzled over possible answers. Any clues? “America is the most aggressive...
